*Besides looking like Lybia could someday be a dealer and collector treasure trove ...

The end statement of the article:

The problem is, young Libyans in militias have no incentive to hand over their weapons, which are their only source of security and their only "bargaining power vis-a-vis the new political order." If they disarm, they would effectively surrender power to a military and police force they distrust, without guarantees of reforms, he wrote.

"Disarmament in any context is never merely an issue of weapons reduction, but rather a social contract between the people and its government," he wrote.

"the new political order" ... "surrender power to a military and police force they distrust" ... kind of sound familiar?
