Is some common sense prevailing now ......... ?

The rebels have just given more time for Sirte to surrender ..........

NATO wanted to get some observers in but these were refused by the rebels  ..........

Will Gaddafi come out a Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid final charge .........

Or will they find him in a rabbit hole demanding the rebel surrender  ...........  ?

Giving the few troops loyal to the Colonel an utimatum is better than directly attacking them,isn't it?! The intention of the rebels is to spare people and preventing a bloodbath. Despite that...people in Lybia seem to be very happy to get rid of the Colonel,where's his support??? Where are the masses defending him? Tripolis fell in an instant....

Unfortunately Germany didn't support the Nato strikes.

It seems this is the final end game for Gaddafi ...........

But, it does not necessarily mean this story is over yet .............

200 billion in cash assets and the future revenues, plus numerous tribes and traditions, mean that human nature my yet play a part in ripping this area to pieces .............

And you may yet look back in the future and say something completely different ............

It is still early in this game with these inexperienced fighters and politicians  ..........

There is a lot that could go wrong ............

And remember there are an awful lot of guns around now .........

Yes,the tribal system and other colliding factions may lead to problems...but you never know. If the Lybians fukc it up and start killing each other after they won over the Colonel....well then I won't pity them. They have their chance.
