Can nations, too, switch horses midstream?

In an interview to Al Arabiya on Friday, son of former Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi, Saadi, warned of a “coming uprising” in the relatively newly liberated country. Al Arabiya, 2-11-12

Not every Gaddafi was killed in the late, great Libya revolution; two of his stalwart sons are lurking about.  One, Saif is languishing in a southern Libya, captive of a tribe waiting to see which way the wind blows before turning him over to the National Transitional Council or anyone else claiming to represent the people of Libya.

The other Saadi, is in Niger. Smarter than the rest of the clan, Saadi escaped to Niger in August before the final results of the fighting were know.  Now, he says he is monitoring the emotions of Libya and believes the tide is turning back toward his tribe, his family, and in the absence of his father, to him.  Saadi says he is merely waiting for the right time to march back into al-Jamahiriya, the republic of the masses, so named by his father and take control in the name of the Gaddafi.

He says the people of Libya are indeed ready to switch back to the horse they have ridden for the last 40 years.  Are they?
