Libya - Gadaffi - Al Qaeda etc

Libya's leader Gadaffi is blaming Al Qaeda for his current crisis - and his soldiers blame rebels as drug-abusers. What a chaos in a country that suddenly smelled freedom when Egypt was freed from the reign of Mubarak.

As in so many other poor nations, the sudden feeling of freedom can really ignite their inner longings. Much like the west propably was also fiered up and zealous just centuries ago when what we today know as the US was established...

The main difference being religion, but the longing for democracy just as identical - regardless of religion. :-)

What happens in that region in coming months is truly going to determine how things will boil up. Noone needs any political degree to smell blood. Truly a scary scenario to behold.

What are your thoughts? Please leave a comment, and let's have a good debate.
