Editor's Note: The following is an edited transcript of Fareed Zakaria's remarks in his interview with Wolf Blitzer on The Situation Room.
By Fareed Zakaria, CNN
I think that Moammar Gadhafi will fight and not surrender. Gadhafi is different from Hosni Mubarak, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, or even Bashar al-Assad. These other figures are bureacrats or sons of the founders of their respective states.
Gadhafi, in contrast, is a founder himself. He initiated the coup that brought him into power. He is more a Fidel-Castro-type-figure - originally very charismatic and militarily skillful. He takes risks. He is not a bureaucrat who will lay down the sword and go quietly into the night.
I interviewed Gadhafi in New York for GPS a few years ago (you can read the transcript here), and he is without question the strangest foreign leader I have ever interviewed. Gadhafi seemed liked he was on drugs - completely out of it. He was bizarre, constantly quoted from his own Green Book, unaware of what was going on around him. Interviewing Gadhafi was like interviewing Yoda.
You had the feeling that his sons were tightly in control and he had some kind of weird, mystical place in that firmament.
