Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am afraid we haven't seen anything yet...and not only in Libya...
Everything that happens seems to me like a big mess...big confusion...not much logic can be used in these events in Arab world as far as I am concerned. First of all I do not see what would be western interest in those events (to initiate them)...those (except Kaddafi with whom they worked well) are western friendly dictators. Then who exactly initiated them? And why? Is it really spontaneous rebellion? I do not believe in those...Even if it is it will not work because of the lack of organization.  Sectarian clashes in a wake of this will be horrific...did they initiate this? Who will come in power even if those regimes are gone (and rightly)? Can we expect worse (fundamentalists)?
Is the reaction of west instinctive without much of the planning? Are they simply going to add to this mess? How many people will die in a process?
I just cannot make any logical conclusions...
