THE WORLD THIS WEEK - Friday, February, 25th (part 2)

It’s a week when Libya’s self-proclaimed « Guide », Muammar Gaddafi, lost all his bearings. And now, he seems poised to lose his country as well. As North Africa’s deadliest rebellion so far rages on, how much more damage will Gaddafi inflict on his people? And can a country riven by tribal rivalries avoid a plunge into all-out civil war?

On the set :

  • Alison Smale, Editor-in-chief, IHT
  • David Clark, Paris Deputy Bureau Chief, AFP
  • Christopher Dickey, Newsweek Magazine's Paris Bureau Chief and Mideast Editor and columnist for The Daily Beast
  • Fawaz A. Gerges, Director of the Middle East Centre, Professor of Middle Eastern Politics and International Relations, PSIA
