The Libyan Devil You Know........

Well, Qaddafi appears to be on the run and Tripoli is in the hands of the rebels. Sorry, I'm not joining the rejoicers. Fox just said that the new government represents "Arab nationalists, Islamists, and businessmen".

Does anyone see this as all that positive? I remember when the Shah of Iran was considered the devil incarnate and the Ayatollah as some sort of "positive change". Yeah, that didn't work out so well, did it? Revolutions are tricky; their results can vary as much as the United States varies from Cuba. I wish Libya luck, even as I have a very, very bad feeling that all is not as it seems.
