The Laughing Mob

The American media is ecstatic. Obama has triumphed! Khaddafy is gone. But what is next? Will Libya become a Western style democracy or will it be taken over by radical Islam? To ask the question is to answer it. The only hope is that Libya becomes an Italian or French protectorate, and even then it is doubtful the Europeans will fight to retain power even if given. I see no happily ever after ending here. It is, we must remember, the Middle East, where cheering crowds and laughing mobs are instantly stilled. Of course, it isn’t over just because Obama says it’s over. Khaddafy may have a trick or two up his sleeve even yet. Stay tuned.



The cheering crowd, the laughing mob

How happy they all seem

Just look at me, I’ve done the job

It seems but just a dream

But cheering crowds bring in their wake

The stony, hard faced men

Who know the war was for their sake

And who will rule, and then

The flags are green, the crescent gold

The Prophet he has come

They’ll tell the mob do as you’re told

The game is zero sum

They’ll laugh and say that with the light

You’ll see what we have done

The world will see a fearsome sight

The Mahdi’s army won
