It is not the first nor the last time a revolution ends up benefiting those the viewers expect the least. But hey, in the internet era it should be different! Anyway, we watch Libyan women taking now to the streets to protest, and of course a romantic veil is covering the protests (again), so that our disingenuous commentators and columnists do not hesitate to support Gaddafis’ regime fall, apparently not knowing that things could be changing for the worse.
Behold a sample of the draft of the new Libyan constitution:
And for the record, Muammar Gaddafi is still the head of a repressive government and a state only fools would call “democracy”.
What viewers do not seem to realize is that Libya is most likely to fell under islamofascism, just like Egypt or so many other Middle-East countries. You couldn’t call such a grim fate “ Spring.” It’s amazing, but the attitude of President Barack Obama does not seem to differ greatly from that which kept Jimmy Carter regarding the Shah of Iran and the Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979. And more than a Nobel Peace Prize, ridicule and scorn is what the world’s most famous peanut farmer deserves by allowing by his glaring omission the rise of the first terrorist state.There’s nothing to celebrate, if freedom and democracy are not on the options, Mr. Obama.
