THE NEXT FALL

By evaluating Qaddafi attitude towards its own people and comparing him to his counterpart Bashar al-Assad, of Syria, I came to a conclusion that this one will be the next fall. But..., no; it’s not going to be a simply fall. If he continue to kill Syrians as he has been doing during these days, I presume that he has a great chance of being beheaded!

Think about it.

Qaddafi used his army to shoot civilians; al-Assad has been doing the same. A little difference between them is that, at least in Lybia, there were a few journalists who could transmit images from some cities and tell the world about the horrendous slaughter that was taking place there. In Syria, as a good dictator that al-Assad is, all International News  Broadcastings weren’t allowed to stay in the country. It means that he can commit murders as much as he can, without any concerning of being on the spot.


These kinds of men think that they are like gods and will last forever as the head (and “owners”) of their nations. Nevertheless, they forget that they should respect people’s wishes - and not to be against their wills.

How can a man in perfect sanity, instruct an army to kill his own people only to keep power in its hands? How can a man kill lots of people and go to bed and sleep peacefully? How can a dictator believe that his govern will last forever? I do not believe dictators are smart enough to learn that, in the history, dictators are always overthrown whatever by their own people or by a foreign country. Nobody likes them!

I would appreciate if I turned on my TV and saw the fall of Bashar al-Assad. It should be a tribute to democracy and one less dictator in the world. Dictators are cowards. They only think about themselves (and their families) and kill if they find someone who does not support their (usually) crazy ideas.

Bashar al-Assad, your day will come!

WHAT'S NEXT FOR DICTATORS?

If you have been following international news, for sure you know that Muammar Khaddafi (or Qaddafi or Gaddafi, depending on the language), the famous dictator who had been in charge of Libya since the end of 1969, has died after being arrested by “rebels” (in my point of view, he was executed after his arrest, since it’s possible to find images on the internet of a Qaddafi imploring for his life after being shot - see TV Al-Jazeera).


This revolution began, after Qaddafi responded with brutality when protesters took the streets to demand him to leave power. And, as we could see, his plan backfired.
He was a crazy guy with a terrorist curriculum on his shoulders.

Now, I ask myself (and you): What’s next for others dictators in the Middle East?

In a couple of years before, Hosni Mubarak, from Egypt, was deposed by a rebelled people tired of corruption, poverty and social inequality, among other things. Now, he is under military arrest.
Muammar Qaddafi, was shot dead after being captured.
Well..., there are still dictatorship in Jordan and Syria and in this last one, the President Bashar al-Assad (son of the dictator Hafez al-Assad who governed this country from 1970 to 2000), has been doing exactly what Qaddafi has done to his own people, that’s to say, killing then indiscriminately because they also want to be free of this sort of government. As for the Jordan, it’s another kind of dictatorship, since there, the man who leads the country is a king (King Abdullah II). If I was one of them, I would be very concerned about being ousted soon.

Dictators throughout this region should take into consideration that Western countries look at them with the corner of eye, since a huge part of Middle East and Africa has oil in their soil. So, any crazy dictator brave (or crazy) enough, who start killing its own people, will observe ‘rebels’ being armed by external forces which want them wiped out of the map.

The death of Muamar Qaddafi should be an alert mainly to Bashar al-Assad whom has been killing his people exactly as did Qaddafi. Perhaps he is the next dictator to be overthrown in the region. People are just tired of dictators.

And now, what’s next for Libya?
Let’s wait and see.
