  3. I don't think there is any question that Gaddaffi is anything other than ruthless military leader willing to go to great lengths to maintain power, but do you think that Libya can create the necessarry institutions to create a stable democracy if it is given the oppurtunity is the mindset and expertise there among the Libyan people for this to happen? Forthermore what role have the bedouins and other nomadic tribes played in the conflict and do you think tribal loyalties might create problems in the future?

  7. Someone says Guardians of democracy UN,USA,EU, ought to get rid of Gadhafi. I ask her did they do the same for Bush and Blair?didnt. They didnt try for illegal invasion in Iraq. will they? NO. If you ask me for better plans/suggestions for Libya… stop Libyan invasion immediately. Stop supporting separatists. compensate Libya for all properties and civillians destroyed by US-EU. Support restablish the civil life. Negotiate for democracy. Democracy must achieve in democratic way. Not buy rockets and bullets. Thats what UN SHOULD DO.This invasion is another US anchor for oil , military and economical interests. That is what UN SHOULD NOT DO.
