Une analyse objective de la situation sur le terrain et du rapport de forces militaires ne permet qu'une seule conclusion: le régime de Kadhafi est fini. Ce n'est plus qu'une question de temps. Mais dans une guerre les médias font aussi la guerre. En Irak, on avait fait le raccourci avec les «médias embedded» dans les chars de l'armée américaine. En Libye, les médias font, en fonction des intérêts de leur Etat, le même boulot guerrier. Le patron d'Al Jazira, l'émir du Qatar, fait partie de la coalition qui mène la guerre en Libye.

The leader of the Libyan revolution presides over a "famously fractious" family that is powerful, wealthy, dysfunctional and marked by internecine struggles, according to US diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks. The documents shed light on how his eight children – among whom rivalries have sharpened in recent years – his wife and Gaddafi himself lead their lives. Muammar Gaddafi The patriarch, now 68, was described by US ambassador to Tripoli, Gene Cretz, in 2009 as a "mercurial and eccentric figure who suffers from severe phobias, enjoys flamenco dancing and horseracing, acts on whims and irritates friends and enemies alike."

Libyan Leader Muammar Gaddafi's 25 Strangest Moments Lockerbie, the Great Manmade River, “Isratine,” abolishing Switzerland, all-female bodyguards, and camels in Belgrade: David A. Graham chronicles some of the most extreme, outrageous, and bizarre actions and ideas of Libya’s unpredictable strongman. Although he might wish it had happened another way, fierce protests in Libya have put Muammar Gaddafi right back where he loves to be: in the international spotlight. Since Gaddafi came to power in 1969, his mix of panache, viciousness, and capricious rule has made him a figure of curiosity—with stunts like trying to pitch a tent in Central Park—and fear, stemming from a series of terrorist acts (a 1981 Newsweek cover story called him “the most dangerous man in the world”). With many analysts predicting an end to Gaddafi’s four-decade reign, here is a look back at its the strangest, zaniest, and most important moments. 1.

The Accomplice | Politics II. The Professor A s friend, colleague, and academic adviser, David Held, a prominent professor of political science at L.S.E. for many years, watched Saif’s speech with particular attention and concern as it was being delivered. Within a few hours, Held would himself become the subject of intense media scrutiny. He had provided informal advice to Saif on his doctoral thesis, had made a number of trips to Libya, and had served for a short period on the board of the Qaddafi foundation. Some see Held as a well-intentioned academic who tried to enable something decent in Saif, while others see him as a naïf who was unwittingly used in the process of reputation-laundering.
This post is part of our special coverage Libya Uprising 2011. It's been six months since the Libyan uprising began. How was the Libyan blogging scene before the February 17 revolution, and how has it evolved over the last few months? Sometime in 2009 and way before the Feb 17 Revolution as it is now known, a large number of the Libyan blogging community members had shifted their conversations to Facebook and later on to Twitter, which they felt was more interactive and ‘immediate'. In this regard, the different English and Arabic blogs were a bit like an empty house with occasional updates on what seemed to be very important events in their life or when ‘guilt’ would prevail.
