    Cnn just had a guest on who worked with Saif Khaddafy on a charity project. He is clueless and obviously biased by this relationship. We can go to all countries in the Middle East and further and say they aren't really a country and they are a combination of tribes. yes... that is what colonialism did.... How about Israel... is it really a country? These people in Libya are fighting and uniting to remove a tyrant... perhaps the "tribal" leadership will be the civil society basis they will need to unite... When Alabama sends a senator to work with rhode Island..... the same thing is happening.... Political structures can form from all kinds of foundations.... this is not a civil war... tribes are not fighting tribes.... they are uniting against a tyrant and calling for their civil and economic rights... We should admire this... not put it down as petty tribal feuding////

    When Africa was colonized, we all wondered how cruel man wanted to dominate forever. But how amazing that our own African brothers want to rule forever. They stood on platfoams denouncing whites as evil during the struggle for political independence and yet today they are worse evil than what they tried to show to us. Gadaffi and Mugabe shock me. It hurts to be ill treated by a foreigner but it hurts most to be ill treated by your own brothers. Today they are ready to see countless die all because they can not let go of power for others to rule as well. Surely the heart of man is weaked beyond measure.
