With the Libyan rebel’s advance to Zawiyah, a mere thirty miles outside of the country’s capital city Tripoli, the West must ask itself have they created a state that will ally be friendly towards Western governments, or have they created another monster. Interviews with rebel leaders show that they are becoming more and more pro-West, especially with the NATO countries who have helped the overthrow of Qaddafi. However, what about those Libyans who did not mind Qaddafi, or what about the one who have had family members killed, which the West and Rebel forces have labeled as ‘colateral damage’. As the rebels gain ground in liberating Libya, the question must be asked ‘what will happen after the succeed?’ or in the off hand chance that Qaddafi has an ace in the hole, what will be the nation wide repercussions if they fail in overthrowing the dictator? Can the West really afford having another state in the Middle East who backs extremists (because if Qaddafi did not before, he certainly will now), also can the Libyan people survive the wrath of an angry dictator. The only thing the West has to fear, is everything and nothing, the asymmetrical system that is in place now does not allow the US, the UK and other Western countries to know what is truly going on. War is deceit, and numerous times before has the West backed the wrong horse, only to come out of the situation with blood on their hands.
