So what about Syria? Anyone?

Right now the Libyan rebels are in the process of dividing the spoils even before they have secured their hold of the country. The last thing is unlikely for the simple reason of the first one. They are not a unified force and infighting will be inevitable. As long as the oil and natural gas are flowing to certain preferred traders (The Spice must flow! ) who cares about the rest? The Libyan people will get an Iraqi style democracy - that is the gang with Western support will be on top and car bombs, shootouts and the like will barely occur - only a few times a week to keep everyone interested and to give the new government a reason to cry for support, money and so on to fight the remaining hidden cells of loyalists(if there are none, we will make some, its easy) and the lesser gangs. Meanwhile Russia is angry for the cancelled weapon deals worth $4 billion but hey its always fun to poke at Russia, at least until they turn the gas valve and wish you a happy and only moderately cold winter. You don't have to be a scientist to guess who will get the sweet deal to arm and supply the new Libyan army and considering that everyone and their grandmother knows it will have a fair share of fanatics, extremists, Al Queda and so on, the irony of this is delicious.

Notice I did not mention Syria even once. Nobody cares about it. At least nobody important

My knowledge of politics is rather elementary so I'll just keep quiet to avoid embarrassing myself.

@Rob, oh don't worry, people do it all the time, even on national television. Whats an internet blog in comparison?
