Tonight on CNN I heard John King say, “Muammar Gaddafi is now using bombs meant to maim and kill people.” As opposed to what, bombs meant to give Swedish massage?!? This whole Libyan situation has gotten beyond ridiculous and I’m sick of the US government, NATO and the United Nations. I never believed the US wanted to do anything about Libya and laid out why in a piece I posted several weeks ago.
So why are in Libya, simply look at who fired the first shot, the French. The French were the first to recognize the rebels and drove the UN and NATO into this fight, why? Well, it’s as simple as why we went into Iraq. We went into Iraq to protect American oil company interests and the French led us into Libya to protect French oil interests.
So, let’s face reality, Gaddafi is a criminal, a murderer specifically, we know for a fact that he is a terrorist.
So let’s stop playing games, if we want him out of power then take him out. I know, it will make all of our other dictator/partner/oil suppliers nervous if we do so. God forbid we should make oil hoarding dictators nervous, it might cause gas prices to go up. Either go in and remove Gaddafi by any means and quickly, or get the hell out of Libya!
