In the video below, I talk of the good news and the bad news about the Libyan endgame.

What you need to know about Libya

The battle for Libya is a side show that is detracting attention from the much more important rebellion in Syria and the ongoing political struggles in Egypt and Tunisia.

We all know that post- Qadhafi Libya will be messy and chaotic. What we don’t know is whether the country can hold together, and whether Islamists will emerge as a powerful force in the new political scene.

In the video below, I talk of the good news and the bad news about the Libyan endgame.

Send me your questions about the Libyan situation at trubin@phillynews.com and I will  answer some of them via video tomorrow.
