Qaddafi Digs In
Muammar Qaddafi does not merely cling to power but goes on the offensive in the life and death struggle to see who controls Libya. Without the intervention of foreign air power to support the rebels or the rapid provision of easy to use shoulder launched anti-aircraft missiles such as Russian produced SAMs, US-made Stinger, or Blowpipe-types delivered to those resisting Qaddafi's tyranny, the long-term dictator will continue to hold out and may even be able to entirely roll back and vanquish the revolution. Every moment Qaddafi's authority remains means that it is ever more likely that the forces of evil will win.
