Sectarian tensions reveal Arab fault line

As the regime of the Syrian strongman falters and Bashar al-Assad is probably haunted by images of the terrifying end of Libya’s tyrant, Moammar Gadhafi, the Arab Spring is turning into an inter-Arab and sectarian Sunni-Shiite regional conflict. The recent decision of the 22-member Arab League to suspend Syria for the violent repression of the […]

Rebel dons “Colonel” Gaddafi’s military hat: “I just took it from his bedroom.”

Fox News Channel got this prize interview with a rebel who ransacked “Colonel” Kadaffy’s compound and, duh, went right into his luxurious and yet ever so “Bedouin” bedroom.  Among what I’m sure were full box-loads of American and European porn mags and videos, he found Kadaffy’s gold-brimmed military hat; grabbed it, and stuck it on […]

Libya’s future echoes Afghanistan’s past

The confusion in western capitals involved in an air war of some sort over Libya — or what the Obama administration in a rhetorical stroke of the best of Orwellian double-speak has called a “kinetic military operation” — means there is no defined end-game.

Gadhafi not ‘delusional’ — he’s evil

The Obama administration’s envoy to the UN in New York, Susan Rice, described Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi as “delusional.” David Pryce-Jones — author of The Closed Circle, which I recommended in my last column as required reading in lifting the veil covering the Arab world — responded by asking if ambassador Rice has any understanding […]

Ditch Libya; “Look for a Canadian flag”

This Twitter post from a the PM Harper’s spokesman (goes by PmoSoudas on Twitter) struck me as one of those little (tiny) gems of history. I captured this last night from my Blackberry while checking my @JoelJohannesen feed. And a well-placed jab at the Liberals from PmoSoudas followed.  He Tweeted: “while Canadian officials are working […]

Libyan “leader” reportedly ditches Libya. Who’d take him?

Hugo Chavez’s people deny knowing anything about Colonel Gadaffi being delivered there, possibly because their idea of open and transparent is not unlike Colonel Sanders’, but several reports have surfaced indicating that the Libya leader Muammar Gadaffi has (to continue the chicken metaphor) flown the coop (or whatever you call nations held in the stone-age […]
