2. You would not know that from his behavior, though.
in his shoes, I might have shipped my family to some nice Western resort when Gaddafi fell, and seen to their financial security, to the extent that I had not already done so. Then, as soon as violence started, I would have held elections.

But then, being an oppressive dictator is not, for me, a higher priority than keeping my family alive and staying alive myself.
