That is an interesting development.

For an interesting "what if", I just found out that Gaddafi's daughter (the one claimed as killed decades ago), is apparently now living in Oman, after being kicked out of the safe house she was living in, in Algeria.

Apparently, in multiple fits of rage, she set fire to the house/palace she was living in, on a number of occasions. The final straw was when she destroyed a photo of Algeria's leader, and was sent packing by the security personnel there.

Rumor has it she wants to restore Libya to its former "greatness" under her father's reign. That might be useful for a hypothetical wargame between one or more factions there, with even the US/NATO trying to prevent that. In an era where the media may decide to back her, against all comers, as a sympathetic darling on the world's stage, how can she and her side possibly lose?

Play the scenario to find out.
