-- all this so what can we expect from the Libyan opposition groups.
That are likely trying to sort of coalesce right now and figure out how -- we'll -- -- -- KT McFarland at Fox News national security analysts on the story -- -- -- the course of this weekend for us.
And we thank you for all of that valuable in place and now here we -- Monday morning plan and you -- the next 48 hours are extremely crucial that's -- weeks back.
Okay here I think it is a three act play act one topple the dictator here we -- of them that act you can rebels get it together.
Watch and see what they do you can establish order and security in the next 2448 hours sent -- two hours because if they can't then -- starts.
It's one thing to have a revolution it's another thing that -- turn around of the boring task of governing.
You know are they gonna spend their time score settling out for forty years Qaddafi is murdered their friends and -- as they're all their energy gonna do it take -- I'm going to killing the bad guys or are they gonna turn around and make sure the water runs the streets are safe protecting institutions get feel -- -- because it is super early word is that the treatment of the -- has been civilized.
At and that says to me that they want the world that that's the message they -- to send to the world that they're not going to treat these.
Individuals the way that they have been treated and their families have been treated and also we've gotten some very you know gotten support from Sarkozy saying He wants to meet with the head of the TNC.
In Paris next week so that also gives them some legitimacy.
You know those indications would be somewhat positive right those are.
Positive but what you know the the moving factor in this is where is Qaddafi does -- fight this in forty.
Does He do with Saddam Hussein remember everybody in Libya's got a -- now whether it's a Libyan military that's it seems to have melted away when the rebels -- -- When they got into Tripoli we know the malicious or raw arm we know the rebels are alarmed so does everybody lay down parents you don't now is is Qaddafi -- were -- go to.
Does -- go to the south does He go to try to rally the southern desert tribes which is where he's from to fight an insurgency.
Doesn't -- -- I -- sounds like in his prime minister is now oxygen -- -- these latest reports.
And his own support network has deteriorated to such a degree do you think that He can't put together enough people to continue fighting.
A lot of money.
Okay he's got a lot of money to -- insurgents -- about -- from to pay people off.
By fighters from Sudan he's -- he's got my that was probably literally under the mattress he's also probably got money throughout the country we know that there have -- Cases of weapons that he's had in various palaces throughout the country he's perfectly capable.
Of mapping and opposition for some kind of guerrilla war now why does He not -- why does it -- and neighboring country.
Well American international criminal court -- indicted him for mass crimes against humanity He could be tried and executed.
But -- already -- they're gonna do with the suns it's about that you know that's a really think that is is out there right now what about just quick question on the leadership in the United States how we're handling it because our.
Input in the signals that we -- so vital right now and France and and Berlusconi is also weighing and -- it -- a.
Very narrow line to walk on the one hand we don't want it -- for victory for fear that it's not going to be such a victorious situation on the other hand we don't want to make it look like it's an American or NATO operations got to be a Libyan operations got to be a Libyan revolution.
However that doesn't mean we step back and do nothing.
The example ever present is 19781979.
The Carter administration shoved this Java run side and then spent looking Iranians do their own revolution -- how that turned out.
So we need to work behind the scenes like my -- Reagan did.
When the iron curtain came down seventy impressed enemy engineers send people to help remember this for forty years these people have never -- themselves didn't have -- discipline.
And it was such a rag tag group in the beginning it that they the accomplishment we think at this point says something for for their tenacity to be sure.
Before we -- one little shout up.
Two let you know that the service runs very deep in the McFarland and I had -- up everybody knows -- right now the Tenet Fiona McFarland is on the USS blue ridge.
I applicants say where they are but they were watching CNN day and so if you're there we thank you for your service -- -- shout out to all of the folks on the USS image than me and them.
