Well it looks like Gaddafi's days are numbered? Still, I am curious to see what monster crawls out of breach left by this so called kinetic operation
by the Western Powers? I suppose trade one dictator for another will suffice? The country of Libya has been battered and bruised quite significantly
by this uprising.
I have been somewhat reserved in my approval of these rebels? I have learned of reports of them allegedly assisting the insurgency in Iraq, committing
atrocities during this campaign, and having radical Islamic ties. Hopefully the allegations are false, and these rebels are legitimate in their

power vacuum left by Gaddafi. We have a mysterious bunch of rag tag rebels vying for power who have been alleged to have committed atrocities and are

increased influence in the new Libya. My guess is there will be violence and mayhem. All aboard the NATO train, and the next stop will be
