Prospects for Restoration in Libya?

With the 42-year rule of Colonel Gaddafi (who overthrew King Idris in 1969) hopefully nearing its end, nothing is out of the question for Libya, not even the restoration of the monarchy. Protesters in Stockholm even raised the old monarchical flag at the Libyan embassy. The royal family are not silent: Prince Idris al Senussi talks to CNN about the turmoil in his country; Crown Prince Muhammad al Senussi calls for the removal of Gadaffi. Let's hope that in at least one Middle Eastern country the unrest of 2011 may have a positive result.
