I must point out--many of us who were skeptical (and are even more so now that we are being proven right) of the so-called "Democratic revolution" in so many Islamic countries are being vidicated with the outpouring of news like this.
What thinking person can honestly say that they seriously expected a true democratic process in an Islamic dominated Middle Eastern country in today's global climate?
Radical Islam is on the rise, and will take over in every single one of these countries that fall to revolution.
I am not a fan of Muammar Quaddaffi (Kadafy, Gaddaffi, whatever...geez) nor am I crazy about the monarchies in the Arab nations, but at least Quaddaffi was mostly 'contained' in Libya before tha NATO airstrikes began.
If he remains in power, expect more Lockerbie type events. He no doubt will feel bound to 'repay' those that joined forces against him.
If he doesn't remain in power, then the Muslim Brotherhood/Al Qaeda/Hezbollah will seize power.
The same can be said of the rest of the nations that are currently--or soon will be--experiencing unrest.
This is a no-win situation for us, which we have made worse by taking sides.
I'll say it again;
in the Middle East, better the devil you know than the devil you don't.
