There is a time to stay and a time to leave in life, the trick is knowing when and how to get the hell out of the place before it collapses on your head. Former President Hosni Mubarak hesitated and insisted it was perfectly safe to remain in Cairo, but alas, events proved him wrong. He now lies on a bed in a court of law being tried for crimes. Muammar Gaddafi is defiant. He terms rebel enemies as “vermin” who will shortly be exterminated. Unfortunately, the rats are now at the outskirts of Tripoli headed straight for his home.
One can only assume those who remain in power for more than ten years develop a personna of never having to say, “I’m sorry.” Power allows one to indulge the mind in a sense of having complete control over all situations. Rebel forces are on the outskirts of Tripoli and reports indicate weapons are entering the city that will enable local activists to rise up against the government. However, Gaddafi will not budge from his conviction of being all powerful.
Muammar, it is time to head for the airport with sons, their families, and grab the first plane and head to a nice country like Saudi Arabia which will grant safety from prosecution. But, if one is never wrong, why take the right way out of the mess?
