Libya is a Socialist State. I had forgotten that. That explains why Chavez has arrived to save the day.

Gaddafi accepts Chavez talks offer – Africa – Al Jazeera English.

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. Gaddafi and his family will need to symbolically exit the State – whether it be through death or exile. Historically, it has been through death. This uprising is different than Egypt in a couple of profound ways.
1) Libya is a pretend or failed Socialist State (as opposed to a pretend or failed Democratic State);
2) and perhaps more importantly, the Libyan military is willing to fire upon its people with live ammunition;

I’m sure arms already have been sent from the U.S. to … well, whomever. Unless Chavez convinces Gaddafi and his family to exist in Exile in Venezuela, it’s going to end violently.
And somehow the U.S. will intervene; and then it will get messy.
