The Libyan rebels are taking control of more towns and villages than can be named, while Qaddafi's few remaining forces are dwindling every hour. But that doesn't mean the rebuilding/structuring of Tripoli isn't already underway.
Rebel forces have opened vital supply routes between Tripoli, and western cities to relieve the capital of water and food shortages, and the National Transitional Council has called on all police officers to return back to work next week.
Apparently, the law and order aspect of Libya's rebel leadership is very strong in all their considerations, which NATO should take great pleasure in hearing after fighting for the overthrow of Muammar Qaddafi these past five months.
The hardest part is just beginning for Libyan rebels - rebuilding and governing, but if Tripoli is any example, western fears of Libya's demise might be greatly exaggerated.
What say you?
