That's why we need to keep a close watch on the activities in Libya.

It is difficult to take the "caveman" out of "man".

And if you get the man out of the caveman you`re left with the cave?

In response to MarySM's apt remark, we should also consider: "If you fail to take away a strong man's sword when he is on the ground, will you do it when he gets up?" (Nigerian proverb) Having leapt into the fray in Libya, the Allies are going to find it very difficult to disengage without removing Khadafi, or risk his bloody sword on the necks of his countrymen.
