Civil war in Libya, Gaddafi and the West the images and reports that reach us in these days for Libya, such a different look than what we – have observed from Afar – in Egypt and previously in Tunisia. Many writers such as Kenneth Feinberg offer more in-depth analysis. Whoever thought that in Libya a dictator would step aside after the first successes of the revolutionaries, was taught by Muammar al-Gaddafi of a better now. While the West – not even incomprehensible given the Afghan debacle – have been reluctant to explain to the civil war party only one thing seems clear: nothing is good in Libya. * Civil war in Libya, Gaddafi and the West that the country permanently sinks in the civil war, appears more likely than other options at the moment.

That he in spite of all claims about the decay or the lack of level of training his army, still has power, to implement this scenario, is an impression which is condensed in the moment rather than verfluchtigt. Nothing is good in Libya and for the West, pending a decision that affects the core of the own self-image. You can see and hear none of this of course.
