Not since Alexander the Great conquered the Persian Empire, some 300 years before the birth of Jesus, has there been a bigger fight to determine who should control the Middle East. In one corner, wearing Stars and Stipes mufti, the Muslim leader of the free world, Barack Husssein Obama: In the other corner, dressed in a transgender robe woven from camel hair representing Libya, the irrepressible Moammar Gadhafi.
Possibly to determine who is the better Muslim-in-Chief of their respective countries, Moammar and Barack are locked in a deadly battle; on one side represented by Obama as being a humanitarian gesture, on the other side, a battle to maintain a longlasting dictatorship by Gadhafi.
Not willing to jump into the ring themselves, both have chosen proxies to slug it out. Using NATO forces manned by American fighter pilots, Obama resembles Mohammed Ali, dancing like a butterfly, but stinging like a bee. Gadhafi, using his stolen bankroll of billions, has hired and equipped mercenaries to duke it out.
We are now early in the second round of a title fight that has no predetermined number of rounds. Las Vegas bookies are giving 3-1 odds that Gadhafi will be the first dancer eliminated in this version of "Dancing With The Czars."
