Opposition: Can You Prove This Narrative Wrong?
A topical narrative might be something like this: A confident looking Libyan regime watches an opposition in increasing disarray.
The question is: does our opposition have the courage and political determination to prove the narrative wrong, now?
The rest of the opposition parties can take a step guaranteed to shock the G & Sons and rage them off course. It will send a firm message of a serious assault for which they will have little defence. It will say: we are now coming to get you. It will announce that the smirk of the illegitimate leader & sons shall be no longer. Shock the regime in parts it does not know it has. Remove the state-like facade engineered for them in recent years. Confuse them into a spin and expose them back to their true nature, thugs and servants of master planners from overseas.
Discussing the 1951 Constitution is a distraction tactic designed to waste opportunities and to send you on a hunt in a barren territory. It is a truly (another) depressing prospect if the plan worked (again).
The fact is, doing anything with the 1951 Constitution other than embracing it in its entirety, is wrecking it as a valuable national asset. We do not have many assets to wreck. It is verging on political madness (may be I should say stupidity) to believe that there is a grain of merit in discussing the 1951 Constitution. It is difficult to see why so many (apparently capable & wise) cannot see this elementary principle. Alimentary judgement alone should tell you that. Let us not continue any longer on this road of political nothingness. Must we help the enemy this much? for ever?
No buts, no ifs, swing in full behind the Libyan Constitution Union, and shock all of our enemies. Those you know and those you do not know. Embrace the complete vision and turn this winning card into the weapon it was designed for. Our enemies have no defence against this one. Everyone will listen.
If we really want to achieve victory, it must surely now be obvious to everyone that there is no alternative to the LCU plan. Some would say, including this one, there never was a realistic alternative to the LCU vision. Everything else has failed. Evidence in recent writings by so many good people who worked so hard for so long with true hearts tells parts of the story of how misled some opposition parties had been (still are).
To drop all and swing in full behind the LCU call without reservations or conditions will be a mammoth challenge to many. It may even look as a “never” to some, and they certainly have to dig deep into the courage and guts department. But the problem is much greater than the challenge to any individual. This is how much it takes.
On the other hand, it only looks that way.
It feels childish to go through the elementary stuff again. So I am not going to.
Suffice to say that, this is more serious than neo-king makers jumping onto the bandwagon with suggestions (rediscovering the virtues of pointing out the obvious and the ridiculous). The King passed away a long time ago. The only heir relinquished his rights long before he too passed away. It is not (or in reality ever was) about who shall be king? or who shall be president, or who shall look the hero. It is about Libya, the country in the hands of boys. We should not sleep soundly with the prevailing state the way it is. Especially, when there is an opportunity to excel and shock.
Conferencing and Pall Talking about irrelevant stuff is what our enemies want us to go on doing, because this makes the opposition the incompetent set-up they wish it to remain.
It is tempting to close with the customary bleak note (such as: I am not staying up late waiting for the new era to shine), so the piece is left without a close.
