With Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, the man who ruled Libya for almost 42 years, gone and his country now on the verge of a civil war, the map of world changes with another post-Ottoman Empire country going down the Neo Colonialist way.
Barrack Hussain Obama, Noble Peace Prize holder, has now emerged as a Warrior President, taking the scalps of Osama Bin Laden and Gaddafi in quick succession. Is he doing this only to get a consecutive term at the Oval Office, or there is more to this global warmongering than what meets the eye.
To answer this question, and to catch a glimpse of the shape of things to come, lets get back to November 01, 1922, the day when Ottoman Empire breathed its last.
The Ottoman Empire
The Ottomans ruled the world for 700 years, making the Khilafat one of the largest and longest lasting Empires in the history. After their fall, the Turk lands were bifurcated into small nation states including Greece, Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Bosnia, Macedonia, Albania in Europe, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine and Jordan in Asia and Libya, Tunisia, Yemen and Egypt in Africa.
Hijaz was handed over to Sayyid Hussein bin Ali Al-Hashemi, the Sharif of Mecca, as a compensation for his revolt against the Ottomans with due support by T.H. Lawrence (aka Lawrence of Arabia). In 1916, the Sharif got into an alliance with the British and French and led what is known as the Arab Revolution against the Ottoman Empire. However, his rule was short lived and he was subsequently defeated in 1924 by Abdul Aziz al Saud, the founder of current Saudi Arabia.
Faisal, one son of the Sharif was installed as King of Iraq, while other son Abdullah was given the eastern half of Palestine, later known as Jordan. The western half of Palestine was placed under direct British administration, and the Jewish population was allowed to increase, initially under British protection.
Apparently, the policy of Neo Colonists is to divide and rule. To support a tyrant and use him till he serve their means, and then replace him with another who submit to their wills. Sometimes they manufacture public uprisings to topple governments, as in the case of Tunisia and Egypt, and sometimes use sheer brute force, as happened in Iraq and Libya.
The Middle East and Africa – Now
New Middle East
I take this recent wave of revolution in Arab lands, labelled as the Arab Spring, as another phase of the New Middle East proposal floated during Bush regime. The wave that toppled the governments of Tunisia and Egypt, shook Bahrain and Yemen and spread anarchy in Syria while Iraq has already disintegrated, Libya has recently fallen down and Pakistan is in the crosshairs.
So what’s next? and to what this chaos and mayhem will lead to? Apparently the USA led Allied forces of NATO have stretched themselves from Asia to Africa. The Muslim nation states are falling down one after the other, like beads from a broken rosary. All this adventurism abroad, and the economic recession at home, will ultimately lead USA, and its European allies, to USSR like fate. This will result in the short lived rise of Israel and then, hopefully, the time will come for the prophecies to materialize.
