Despite I have been covering the Egyptian issues more nowadays yet I can’t ignore or forget to following what is taking place in Libya , actually almost all the people I have recently are following the situation in Libya carefully.
I am very worried now for two reasons :
1// I heard a disturbing rumor that Bashar Al Assad is sending aid to Qaddafi , this aid is actually a group of Syrian pilots. I hope that this is a false rumor because the last thing we need in this agony is to know that Arabs are participating in the murder of their brothers in this way. Of course some will say that this is nothing compared to the fact that Libyans killing each other and that Al Assad is another dictator just like Qaddafi and is worried for his throne and I will say yes but this is even sadder. If this rumor is true , the Libyans must know that the Syrian people are with them and refuse this.
2// The war between the revolutionaries and Qaddafi is getting too long and this worries me , of course now Qaddafi is offering a strange offer : To have talks with the revolutionaries in order to step down. Based on Qaddafi’s personality I think he will not step down , he does not want to step down and this could be a silly trap.
Now moving to another thing : Famous Tabliod Mirror claims that our special forces have entered Libya from Tunisia to bring down Qaddafi who vowed to fight till the last man and woman. The fact that is in the Mirror makes the new less credible. Many Arabs and Westerns are wondering why Egypt and Tunisia are not helping the Libyan revolutionaries especially Egypt considering the Egyptian army expertise alike.
Now this is my opinion : I agree that we should help our Libyan brothers militarily and God knows I hope that the Egyptian army gives the revolutionaries and defected Libyan army officers and soldiers arms to stand against Qaddafi and his troops . Still I do not want any Egyptian army units to engage in fighting in Libya now because simply the army is stuck now in Egypt’s political civil life while protecting the country’s national security. It is tough mission and we do not want the army to be engaged in another bloody challenge. We have learned our lesson in a hard way in Yemen.
Of course the news of Mirror is a bit ironic because it comes after the bold and rude criticism of Qaddafi to our army and our revolution in his last public speech that. The king of morons claimed that Egypt was now nothing and the army was nothing !! He added that the Egyptian army is doing nothing now except sitting on tanks in the streets and cleaning the sewage !!!!!
If I am not mistaken I think Qaddafi is trying to scare his people from revolting against him foolishly but he is failed as far as we all see , the people are not stupid.
I just hope the West does not have any thought of any military intervention in Libya because of the oil , we are afraid from another Iraq , we do not want another Iraq. If the NATO and the States plan for any sort of military intervention , they must know that the price will affect negatively all the democratic revolutions in the Arab world. The dictators of the Arab world will use any Western military intervention on Qaddafi and his forces to scare their people from any revolution in the future.
