News From Libya – September 10, 2011: And the Winner is … Gadhafi!

Libya is now set to be a scene of multiple battles. Opportunistic and corrupt pro-western former Gadhafi’s henchmen versus Al-Qaida -alied fundamentalists.

The same fundamentalists that US (Obama), France (Sarkozi) and UK (Cameron) armed, trained, and assisted with air support and on-the-ground special forces to win the civil war. Does it sound like Afghanistan and mujahedeens in 1980s?

Ron Paul calls is a “blowback” – when US does “something” (because “something has to be done”) and the result is much worse than if nothing were done.

Guardian is now catching up to what many people have said in the past few months. A growing rift between the National Transitional Council and local leaders exposes conflicting visions for Libya’s future.

And it is not going to be just 2 groups as they both consist of multiple fractions. In adition to that, the foreign powers are not unified either: France, Italy, UK, US will not necessarily have the same policy towards various groups in Libya. Add to it other Saharan countries and China and it may feel like Somalia was just a kiddie play.

As the kids are told: “Don’t play with a knife, you can cut yourself.”

What kind of democracy is in the West that this kind of ruthless and yet totally incompetent dictators (called presidents or prime ministers) get elected?! Roman Empire again, in its last phase…

The best at the end: “liberated” Libyans are quietly waiting for a moment to rise up against their “liberators”.

“In [‘liberated’] Ajaylat, several people said they were still hoping that Gaddafi could make a comeback and were prepared to fight on his behalf.”

“People want Gaddafi. I can’t deny this,” said a resident named Khaled, 40. “We can’t live under the invasion. Even though they are afraid, in a few days people can fight again — men, women and children.”
