Libya and Beyond

Quedaffy is supposedly on the run now as the mob rule comes to Libya. Never thought we'd see the day. Hopefully Allah is protecting Pan Am terrorist al-Megrahi in his villa along the Mediterranean with all the chaos against the regime--it would be terrible if any harm would come to him, being so sick and all.

And it's certainly fortunate that Libya's nuke program is sitting in Tennessee right now. For some reason the London Daily Mail forgot to mention that in their article suggesting Tony Blair might somehow be complicit in the shootings for trying to bring Libya into the civilized world. It's harder to blame Bush when his foreign policy was to bring freedom to the Arab world.

In all seriousness let's hope the unrest spreading across Arabia doesn't lead to more unrest. It's hard to forget that one of bin Laden's main goals was toppling the thugocracies in hopes that Islamists would take the reins. Revolts have to be followed by strong, committed leaders to manage the mundane after-effects.

Good one about al-Megrahi. Wouldn't want anything to happen to that national hero.

I'm getting concerned about the situation. Each morning it seems another country is involved, even China. This could go really bad for everybody.

Yes, it's a harrowing time. The ME could go either way right now. The people have stood against the dictators and tinpots, now they'll have to stand against the Islamists. Tall order.
