There are no sure bets in diplomacy. As you should know.
The only sure thing is that Gaddafi is a bloodthirsty tyrant who calls his opponents "traitors" and "rats", has sent assassination squads all over the world to kill dissidents--and has already slaughtered quite a few. This is just what Hitler did--in fact he mainly restricted himself to the sphere he controlled.
The Benghazi government does not do it. Quite a few Western diplomats have been impressed with the expressed attitudes of the Benghazi government--which as I have noted, has a lot of intellectuals who cannot stand the straitjacket of the Gaddafi regime.
It's time for all thinking beings to recognize these facts.
And stop making excuses for Gaddafi or implying that any other government would do the same as he does. The facts in Libya are on the other side.
