The Libyan Fox at Bay

Eric Margolis on the demise of Gadaffi.

Gadaffi is a sad example of the maxim about absolute power corrupting absolutely. People like me who relish political theater of the absurd will miss the “Leader;” but most of his people, I suspect, will not.

While Gadaffi prepares for his last stand, the next storm to hit North Africa may come in Algeria and Morocco, two western-supported regimes that are considerably more brutal and repressive than Gadaffi’s ramshackle “people’s jamuhyria.”

The revolution now burning across the Arab world – and perhaps as far east as Central Asia, even China – has just begun.
