I suppose the question that will eventually be asked is: “was he sane to begin with?” which is debatable. He had the power, an entire people under his thumb. Yet to date the international community has done nothing. They went in fast enough when Saddam Hussein rattled their cage; and yet with blatant human rights abuses and after two of his pilots defected rather than bomb their own country … they’ve frozen a few of his assets. It’s not enough and if they’re not careful it’ll be too late and a lot more will die.
Gadaffi is saying ‘There is no trouble, my people love me”. I suppose it’s possible he’s been kept in the dark and knows nothing of what’s going on … but, methinks, highly unlikely.
