What would be self determination in Lybia?

Reader comment on item: Back to the Shores of Tripoli?

The post reminds me of the first one post about Lybia, that brought me to your blog: which explains what is Arabic world. i would be realistic, beside humanitariam values, economic values is still part of this game. I would consider, one eventual atack of US is bad for all sides, Libia, US and Europe, coordenation is need. I don't like the conflict alternative in any circunstance, but for sure the history show Kadaffi is not an alternative for Libia anymore. My concern is what is plausible, an eventual invasion will desorganise the hole country. We never heard about a strong lider in the oposiotion or any force to give respect or confidence on the Oposition Moviment Action, like we heard from palestine. Where is Afrcan Countries? If they dont work on the geopolitic I think this situation will last long. I think thats make the real concern! It's crazy but Kadaff is a reference, obsolete, unhuman, violent but a reference.

Strategically the Petroleum economy makes everything more delicate. How long the international economy system can afford this over sensibility of prices, based on Saudi Arabia? It seems a very lost game circle, the losers are the industrial agricultural countries, because at the same time they try to stabilize its economy situation, to spread democracy values, they have over push their economy ?
