While we are all carrying on about Ron Paul and such, it seems there is some progress being made over seas.




Muammar Gaddafi's 41-year grip on power in Libya looked more precarious than ever on Friday night, as rebel forces advanced on the capital from three directions after breaking out of the once-besieged town of Misrata.
With rebels taking control of the coastal town of Zlitan in the east, those in the west claimed to have made progress clearing out the last pro-Gaddafi troops from Zawiyah, 30 miles west of Tripoli. They now have the main coastal road under pressure on both sides of the capital and also under threat from the Nafusa mountains.
Gaddafi's army outside Tripoli is trapped in a series of besieged and shrinking enclaves, with rebels controlling more than two thirds of the country. And as the stranglehold on the capital tightens, plans are being made to evacuate the last remaining foreign workers by sea.

If Gaddafi does fall soon, just what kind of impact can we expect from over there as far as power changes? Who will get the most benefit from this besides the people in the bigger picture? I was actually surprised to see the rebels have gotten this far as it seems like not to long ago they were pretty much beaten back.

What stakes does the US have in this?

prediction- rebels scattered as they get to close, as has happened over and over and over and over. hes not attacking, this should be obvious by now. its a defensive war, so in the end, even if he loses, his people still see he was defending himself the entire time. i dont agree with taking him out, but its a truth nonetheless. they are trying to besiege him again because everytim they attack directly they are destroyed and scattered, like he has been waiting for this type of warfare for decades. i dont agree with his ideas, but admit he has the tactics of a militiary genius.
hes on the defensive, not giving a target for nato bombings, but not just laying down either. i think we still have a ways to go before hes taken out

Really? I certainly hope not.
I am actually trying to look at the big picture here, somewhat like a chess game, and trying to figure out why this is coming to a head now? There is more to this fabric than just a wrinkle.
