I've been away on business and haven't been too focused on world events. Qaddafi seems to be slipping more and more from power, but he is certainly making it a bloody process. I expect that radical Islamists are a pretty substantial part of this bloody revolution in Libya, but remain ever optimistic that Libya will become a more modern and moderate place when the blood dries up.
Monsters create monsters, it seems to me, and Qaddafi certainly satisfies the first half of that equation.
I send them light and healing and my prayers.
