It looks like Gaddafi is gone. Or going. But he's not going to be around anymore which, let's face it, is a broad good thing.
He's not exactly a fuffy kitten that's been oppressed.
But wow. Just wow. The power and the courage of people in the Middle-East who've taken part in the Spring. They have my complete admiration. Especially those who take on the power and machinery of an oppresive state with all that entails. And who do so in the early days when momentum for change is not yet assured of mass support.
