The tribes that are going to

The tribes that are going to be in the coming post-Gaddafi government will be the by far militarily strongest (with their foreign support), and they will go on following this paradigm of military strength when they decide over matters of distribution. That’s the tribes with the roses. There will be enough other tribes without influence (Gaddafi’s for instance). No roses, but a few surprises for the allies of the winners. That’s the recipe for a long civil war, and some terrorism on our side of the Mediterranean. No doubt there will be people explaining that with inherent characteristics of Arabs, but in fact it’s a conflict around participation and distribution.
