End of an era, beginning of a new one
Although I had and have little sympathy for Mr Gadhafi, the brutal way in which he was lynched and the repeated, hysterical shouts of 'Allahu Akbar' by one or more of his killers made me wonder once again if during the last months NATO - the US and Europe - has not been helping to create a new uncontrollable and unstable component within an already not very stable region. Let's hope - for the sake of the Libyan people, and for our own - that in the near future misgivings such as these will turn out to have been unfounded.
