Shock News Of The Day

No, not Huntsman getting out of the race, but Libya's militias refuse to disband.

The militias, which fought to unseat former leader Muammar Gaddafi, are now the biggest threat to stability in Libya, clashing regularly with each other in violent turf wars and undermining the authority of the country's new rulers.

The interim government, the National Transitional Council (NTC), wants to amalgamate the militias into the police force and army. The NTC's chief said this month that if they do not comply, the country risks being dragged into a civil war.

Nobody saw this coming, I'm sure. So, what happened to this peaceful Arab Spring that merely wants freedom and democracy in the Middle East?
