I wish you were right, but I

I wish you were right, but I fear you have got this badly wrong. Yes it is disheartening to see the rebels driven out of town after town, but one has to slightly agree with BigC (God forgive me !) that firing AK47s into the air makes good copy but it wont defeat Gaddafi. He's got nearly all the tanks and the artilery: he will reduce Benghazi to rubble just like Hitler did the Warsaw ghetto.

As to your thoughts that Gaddafi is driving the rebellion underground I think this wishful thinking. He will extract a terrible price for this rebellion, for his humiliation and loss of face. He will take a leaf out of Saddam's book. You kill not just the rebel, but his wife and children, maybe his parents and grandparents and his uncles and aunts. The people will soon learn that rebellion brings with it death to yourself and all those you love. As I said, and may the Lord have Mercy upon their Souls: Gaddafi certainly wont.
