    So I guess the author considers overturning a brutal 42 year dictatorship through 1 year of war and transparently electing a 100% democratic government 'going nowhere'. I'd like to see what timetable for revolutions the author is referring to when determining libya is going nowhere. In fact there are great positive changes happening every day, press freedoms, freedoms for minorities to express themselves, new economic development as well as massive progress in building up new state security services (800 police officer cadets graduated from 7 months of training in Turkey just yesterday). The author generally seems to have done a very superficial sweep of other articles on Libya when compiling this article. As is evidenced by his very basic error on the number of members in the constitutional drafting committee (60 NOT10). In any case, Libya IS going forward, the huge and 100% peaceful 2nd anniversary celebrations of the revolution last week highlight this. We will see more progress over the next months and the constitution will be written in due course, no need to unnecessarily rush this process.
