With his hold over Libya loosening, Muammar Gaddafi seems to have lost his mind and perhaps his nerves.
"The Libyan leader has lost all three pillars of his rule - tribal, military and diplomatic. Judging from his desperate speech last night, he seems to be losing his mind and perhaps his nerves.
That's why it's only a question of time for his regime to breakdown.....
The capital, Tripoli, might still prove to be the most dangerous. An escalation in the capital where Gaddafi’s sons have concentrated their militias might lead to more bloodshed.
As Gaddafi 'loses it', diving deeper in isolation and finding no way out, he is more than capable of ordering the worst crimes.
Unless he loses the loyalty of these militias, or they are deterred from carrying his orders, the last hours and days could prove to be violent.
Having said that, like the Tunisian and Egyptian military before them, the Libyan military and militias could still prove to be more conscientious than their dictators."
