Arab 'fig leaf' for regime change
As Gadaffi was facing a militant armed rebellion against "undemocratic governance'', in the wake of earlier similar uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt and Yemen where governments have long mocked democratic governance a Washington-Paris-London leadership troika was engaged in quietly lobbying for an Arab endorsement to provide regional cover via the United Nations Security Council.

That endorsement, or "fig leaf'' covering came from the Arab League and was to result in the UN Security Council's resolution of March 17....Not without significance, a primary mover behind the Arab League's endorsement of the UN resolution was the organisation's secretary general, Amir Moussa.

He had previously been fingered by American journalist Seymour Hersh, as Washington's "Plan B'' to succeed the US much loved Hosni Mubarak, who was forced out of the presidency last month after some three decades of dictatorial rule, including like Gadaffi, torture and murder...It is no longer a secret that the Arab League's Moussa is a potential presidential candidate for Egypt's new general election under a new constitution...

Let us get ready for regime change in Tripoli compliments of even a coalition of intervening powers with conflicting messages and priorities.
