    PHYLLIS BENNIS: It’s not about access to the oil itself. That will be on a global market. It will be part of it. It’s about control. It’s about controlling the terms of those contracts. It’s about controlling amounts that are being pumped at different times. It’s about controlling prices. It’s about controlling that crucial resource.

    Phyllis Bennis a fellow at the US-based Institute for Policy Studies, said it is too early to describe the rebels’ final push as the end game for Col Gaddafi.

    “While the opposition forces have made significant gains in the last several days, Tripoli is going to be a different order of magnitude,” she told Al Jazeera English TV channel.

    “Basically it's individual governments making that decision, showing their true intentions, which is regime change,” added Phyllis Bennis, of the Washington, D.C.-based Institute for Policy Studies and director of its New Internationalism Project. “It's kind of giving an international group power and recognition,” she told The Final Call, referring to the contact group.

    The protesters have said they intend to start holding nightly rather than weekly demonstrations during Ramadan, according to Phyllis Bennis, with the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington.

    "In response to that, the regime has shut down a number of key mosques and particularly is looking at the possibility of the protests spreading on a wide level to the capital," she told CTV News Channel Monday afternoon.

    "So far it's been in areas surrounding Damascus, some of the suburbs. But it has not yet hit in large scale the centre of Damascus itself."

    Phyllis Bennis, a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, said the assassination of Khan could be the Taliban's way of sending a message to the US.

    "Jan Mohammad Khan was known to have close ties with the US and was alleged to have been involved in working with the US on some of the military's night raids - which have become such a flash point among Afghan civilians because they have led to so many civilian casualties," Bennis told Al Jazeera.

    Eighteen months ago, President Obama ordered a surge of 30,000 U. S. troops into Afghanistan. Tonight, he is expected to announce his decision about the pace and scope of bringing them home. Following the death of Osama bin Laden and a decade of war, more Americans than ever say they want our troops out of Afghanistan. Some experts claim drones and special forces can keep the Taliban and al Qaeda at bay. But others say security and corruption are still a concern. And while political talks show promise, they worry the Afghan insurgency is far from over. Diane and her guests discuss the risks and benefits of reversing the surge in Afghanistan.
