There is more bad news for Moammar Gadhafi on the diplomatic front.
A week after Russia flipped on the Libyan dictator and embraced the Libyan rebels, China's ambassador to Qatar, Zhang Zhiliang, met in Doha with Mustafa Abdel Jalil, the leader of the rebels Transitional National Council.
"Chinese ambassador to Qatar Zhang Zhiliang has recently met with Chairman of the Libya's National Transitional Council Jalil and the two sides exchanged views on the Libyan situation," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said, according to the state-run Xinhua news agency.
"China's position on the Libyan situation is clear, that is, we expect the Libyan crisis can be solved through political means and believe that Libya's future should be decided by its own people," Hong said.
So who does that leave in the Gadhafi camp? The African Union? Syria? Iran? The Klingons?
