Second Verse, Same as the First?

So Ka … Kha … Ga … Gha … that guy who used to rule Libya is dead. Okay, no tears here at TUAK. So whadaya wanna bet…

“We confirm that all the evils, plus Gaddafi, have vanished from this beloved country,” Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril said in Tripoli as the body was delivered, a prize of war, to Misrata, the city whose siege and suffering at the hands of Gaddafi’s forces made it a symbol of the rebel cause.

“It’s time to start a new Libya, a united Libya,” Jibril added. “One people, one future.”

I doubt very sincerely that all the evils have vanished from Libya. I’d consider the proclamation “A new America, a united America, one people, one future” a very chilling one, no matter who made it. Coming from these guys, it’s a guarantee of trouble.

Anybody want to take the other side of a bet that we’ll be shelling out tax money to fight a war against the evil, bloodthirsty “freedom fighters” of Libya within a decade?

    I’m just waiting for the other shoe to drop and the reprisal killings to begin. Ghadaffi / Khadaffi (whatever!) led a pretty brutal regime, and the people he had in charge of this security took some major liberties on political enemies and other malcontents in general. Now that he is gone and they are left without a protector, I imagine their life is worth less than a plugged nickel.

    Welcome to new boss… same as old boss.

    Just a different tribe taking power with all of the old tired philosophy firmly in place. Ghadaffi actually was an anomaly and made some progress, but anyone who isn’t thrilled to pieces with traditional Islamic oppression had best leave the country as fast as possible – those few poor souls who have not already done so.

    It’s about to get very nasty.

    You have got to be shitting me.

    He really said that?

    Hey, I don’t make this stuff up, Tam.

    …well, sometimes I do. But not this.

To the stake with the heretic!
