The United Arab Emirates, of which Dubai is a member, is among the Arab states that have strongly backed the rebellion against Gadhafi and could provide critical assistance if the Libyan leader is ousted. Members of the rebel "stabilization team" are showing confidence as their forces press closer to the capital Tripoli. Team chairman Ahmed Jehani says a transition period is already under way. He called Sunday "day one" for efforts to prepare the country for a post-Gadhafi era.
