The name of the new war being launched by coalition forces in North Africa, “Operation Odyssey Dawn,” is quite fascinating. Libya in fact is the third stop on the voyages of the hero Odysseus in Homer’s epic poem, The Odyssey. In that story it was described as the land of the Lotus Eaters, where Odysseus and his men consumed mind-altering substances that made them forget their mission to return home. This is quite interesting, considering that Gaddafi early on complained that the citizen uprising taking place in his country was the result of teenagers being dosed surreptitiously with hallucinogenic drugs by the CIA.
