There is a suggestion in the papers that Gaddafi might be leaving, which would be a good outcome overall for Libyans.
Where would he go? Maybe Latin America? Italy? Not sure he’ll want to remain in Africa as the Guardian suggests, lest his days are numbered.
The problem isn’t really him, and although we know that dictators cling on to the last vestiges of power to the end, the issue is, his sons.
One of his sons was destined to take over the family business of running Libya, much like the monarchies of old and that is something they won’t want to give up, so whilst it might be possible to pension off Colonel Gadaffi, his sons are a different matter.
Will they fight to the end? I don’t know, I hope not, but avarice and power are terrible masters.
