Libya on the Brink?

 

I talked to Mohamed Eljahmi late last night about the situtation in Libya — ripe with both violence and rumors. Mohamed’s brother, Fathi Eljahmi, was a prominent democracy activist, murdered by Qadhafi’s regime. Mohamed tells me:

I am optimistic about Libya when Qadhafi completely disappears from the political scene.  I just listened to his son, threatening and lying.  He blamed the violence on opposition and called them, ‘Drunken and drug users.’ His father hired the mercenaries not the opposition.  It is time for the U.S. and West to explicitly tell Qadhafi to go.  He is so toxic.
