The Gadhafi era draws to a close
This morning, news broke that rebel forces in Libya easily broke into Gadhafi’s compound after a NATO airstrike blew a gap in one of the outer walls. Security was nonexistent, as rebels were not met with any form of resistance as they took over the structure. However, Gadhafi was nowhere to be found and his whereabouts are still unknown. This comes after rebels assumed control of Tripoli this past weekend. At the rate at which these developments are progressing, we could see the end of Gadhafi’s tyrannical reign at any minute. As every news station has their eyes on Tripoli’s celebrating streets, many questions about the future transitional government remain unanswered. What’s next for the Libyan people? Where is Gadhafi? What will need to be rebuilt due to the fighting? What roles will NATO and the United States play in the next step?
