I think there is more behind the scenes, which is pushing the revolution forward. As usual, we must look at citizen uprisings with a suspicious eye when foreign powers get involved.

Just read a profile of Gadhafi's children. Turns out, the youngest, Khamis Gaddafi : "Just before the uprising he spent four weeks in the US as part of an internship with AECOM, a global infrastructure company, and toured US ports and military facilities. The company claimed the US government had approved the plan and offered advice; the State department denied any role in planning or paying for the trip." http://www.telegraph.co.uk/journalists/matthew-holehouse/8715113/Libya-profile-of-Colonel-Gaddafis-eight-children.html

Oh I saw that article, this poem is based in a rebels eyes, I should write one concerning government involvement, but that would probably send the wrong message. Thank you for the feedback Marianna, as you are a dedicated follower on my material
