Libyan alliance forces have swept through the south:

They said 18 revolutionary fighters died in the final battle for the deep south's largest city, Sabha, and that pro-Gadhafi resistance consisted now of what they called a few last pockets of holdouts.

Which means that loyalists are trapped near the coast, especially at Sirte. And Khaddafi must be up there rather than down south where I figured it would make more sense for him to flee if he wanted to sustain resistance.

In the north, there may be loyalists but with the sea to the north and lots of Libya all the other directions, it will be tough to import weapons to sustain resistance that can challenge the new alliance government.
