Gadhafi was the man who held this group of tribes together. He was a corrupt leader, but without him there is no Libya. This isn't Egypt or Tunisia. The 'rebels' have no sense of national identity. They are loyal to their tribe leaders...What unites them for now is their hate for Gadhafi. But when He goes, it will be every man (or tribe) for himself. Sarkozy, Berlusconi and Obama will have to pay a lot of money to keep things quiet on the European border. It won't be easy. What we see in Somalia, Sudan and parts of Yemen can happen in Libya very soon. The same is true for Syria. If Assad Jr. goes, there will be no western style democracy, but middle-eastern style violence, bloodshed, and civil war.
