id 1988. After the fall of 卡扎菲, there is increasing question of the viability of the despots passing power to their second generation which is exactly what the mainland is gearing for in 2012. I do not know if the regime up north will smarten up to the fact that Tunisia, Egypt, Libya (and likely Syria, Bahrain..) all fell because of the dynastic attempts.
I do not want 李鵬 to end up like what 卡扎菲 even though his crime deserves the brutal punishment accorded to 卡扎菲. And Chinese I believe are more civilized.
