Libyan Government Falls (Or Almost)

Two of Moammar Gaddafi's sons have been captured by the rebels who, after weeks of stalemate with the dictator's forces, advanced with surprising speed towards Tripoli and has met none of the heavy resistance expected.

Personally, I like to wait until the dude's in cuffs or they find him, dead or alive I guess.

However, no one knows just what kind of government will seize the power vacuum. President Obama will make a statement when he has more information.

I am sure our people have been on the ground trying to take a pulse of the mood of the people, the rebels, and the provisional government.

There is no guarantee that what comes next is something we in the West will like. But hey, so long as it's a government by the people, it's all we can ask for.

And so long as they're not calling "death to America" or anything like that, we wish the Libyan people all the best.

Note: With such ease, I am cautiously optimistic. I hope there won't be an Iraq like insurgency that will pop up.
