The Libyans are quite the believing conservative Muslims.
And yet, they are not famed for blowing stuff up, slashing throats open, subsidizing jihadi killers worldwide, etc.
There are quite a number of old pagan relics hanging around in their land that would have been razed long ago in Our Ally, Saudi Arabia.
The Libyans had a weird leader who had his hands in blowing up a plane killing hundreds, and in a fair chunk of 1980s terrorism, but was overall far less destructive than Our Ally… and, notably turned away from his terrorism.
The West — a.k.a., the USA and the UK — chose to lure Qaddafi into renouncing all nuclear weapons as well: and then betrayed him, engineering his overthrow (which led to his humiliating death), leaving the nation in chaos, opening an opportunity to the Islamic State… and putting the Islamic slave markets back in business. Something Our Visionary Leadership will never do to Our Ally.
I regret, with great intensity, not so much as my region of space is dominated by Islam: but it is tied to the Islam of Our Ally.
But I shall continue to lie in the bed that I have made for myself. The best stories are grounded in suffering and pain… and, inevitably, the arrival of justice.
Something Our Ally should be watching out for.
