Future in Libya
By Micah Halpern

Tuesday August 23, 2011

I'm Predicting:

Ghadaffi was, is and always will be a tyrant, a despot, a thug. Libyans are celebrating now that he is no longer in control of their country. But is Libya any closer to stability today than it was under the rule of Colonel Muammar Ghadaffi?

The NTC, the National Transition Council, the interim government chaired by Mustafa Abdul Jalil and now running the country, has created the beginnings of an infrastructure. But it is only the start.

Libya is a tribal country - a collection of 140 tribes that do not get along.

Jalil successfully brought together a few of the tribes to fight and oust Ghadaffi. Now he must bring more tribes into the group and begin the arduous task of re-building their country.
