|Man in a Desert||
Colonel Gaddafi in his latest talk, delivered over the radio, has told Benghazi that his forces are coming tomorrow and will show no mercy to anyone bearing arms against him.
He knows that he's racing against the clock with the UN security Council about to vote on a No-Fly zone over Libya.
Gaddafi has agents within Benghazi and I expect them to make trouble. They have already proven that they exist with the targeted attack on the Al Jazeera crew that killed cameraman Ali al-Jaber. But I doubt he can carry the fight all the way there over such long lines.
Doubtless he will attack from the air and sea but while I'm not a military expert I doubt his will to carry out a purposeful and sustained land campaign so far away from home base leaving both his headquarters and best forces exposed and extending his supply lines over territory that he has yet to take complete control of.
A man on a long journey through a perpetual desert.
