Endgame in Libya?

Recent reports of senior regime henchmen deserting, the near encirclement of Tripoli and the start of uprisings in the city surely point to a swift end to Ghaddafi's end as Libyan dictator.

It's been a long time coming. Like many I had hoped that the rebels would have swept him aside sooner. But that was not to be.

But Ghaddafi's downfall is just the end of the beginning. It is unlikely that the fighting will not continue in the form of an insurgency form regime friendlier areas.

A bigger problem will be uniting the country.  I hope that the National Resistance Council is up to what will be a massive job.

As ever there far better commentators on world events than I cold ever be
