Massie's view of Libya:
[S]hooting people in the streets is also a sign of weakness, not strength. Increasingly it seems that the Qaddafis options amount to choosing the manner and moment of their defeat and eclipse. Eventually, failure carries a price. Even in authoritarian states.
I am praying hard for the people of Libya. The Qaddafis are merciless. They will not go easily.
