By Joseph Logan TRIPOLI | Fri May 27, 2011 Russia joins Western chorus for Gaddafi to go | Reuters Whether it be peace or war. No one is talking peace or war at this time. Now is not the time to talk either as it is clearly the time to employ political machinations and that's what's happening. Don't discount Al Qaida in Libya. The West might well be helping to create the very base they do not want. An Al Qaida ideological based country. I mean, look at history. It often happens that who we support end up doing us dirty. Saddam and bin Laden show the kind of loyalty or even thanks the West will get.

There's not a lot of long term prognosis that are worth more than the paper they are printed on at this time.
