LE– Need for leadership in Libyan protests

Leadership is needed everywhere, its not just restricted to organisations. This makes me reflect back to something interesting that I witnessed a couple of days back...

Few days ago I was watching Sky News, the reporter was taking interviews of Libya's civilians who particapate actively in mass demonstrations and protests again Gaddafi. Mind you, these civilians possess  all sorts of fire arms, weapons and ammunitions. He asked them a simple question:

Reporter: When you want to carry out protests and demonstrations, who leads you?

Civilian (a software engineer holding a gun) : We just randomly start attacking when we want to...

Reporter: Okay, so who is your leader/commander:

Civilian: I don't know

Reporter: Does anyone here know who their leader is.

No civilian knows the answer.

What we see here is although thousands of  Libyans are passionately and voluntarily fighiting for their rights against an autocrat and bully, much of their effort goes in vain parrticularly because there is no guiding force to direct them. There is no one to give orders. No leader? There is so much of chaos everywhere!! Won't there efforts produce better result if there was a leader? It is important that the civilians elect a leader for themselves if they want to be successful, else it can be very difficult. Their rebel will have a much more powerful impact with effective leadershsip. Leadership is needed everywhere!!

  1. That is really true Aditi….......In my opinion lack of leadership in the protestors is the main reason why they cannot take charge of the war…....... They is lack of guidance and communication on behalf of the protestors….......... I am really anxious about what happening there…..... Also my fear is that if protestors “win” who will take charge of the country? If there are no leaders now why it should be expected to be tomorrow? Are these emerged leaders in that case opportunists. . . ?
    I am really afraid…....

    I hope everything stop soon…...........
