The Libyan Uprising

The one uprising that is most likely to be hijacked and sabotaged is the Libyan Uprising.  Not only because of the opportunistic and sinister Western intervention but also because the faces of the old detested regime are now leading the so-called opposition.  I mean, to listen to Qadhdhafi's UN ambassador, `Abdur-Rahman Shulqum, speak against Qadhdhafi on Aljazeera is more than I can handle. This man was a propagandist for Qadhdhafi's repugnant regime for decades and he covered up and justified his crimes.  Either the the opposition cleans up its ranks from such unsavory characters, or it is getting another lousy tyrannical regime.  But on the other hand, the ability of any regime to establish tyranny in countries hit with the Arab uprisings tsunamis is very small because uprising create contexts of political chaos that are just delicious.
