Call me heartless but you know, I can’t care too much that Qaddifi’s son and grandchildren might be dead following NATO air strikes. He puts his family in dangerous situations and in buildings that are targets and then denounces the allies for their deaths? Gimme a break.
I don’t know why we are in Libya, to begin with. No one has proven that their civil war has put us in immanent danger.
Has everyone forgotten the dancing in the streets in the Muslim world when innocent civilian Americans are killed? I haven’t forgotten it and I’m not celebrating their deaths (if it’s confirmed) but I’m sure not sorry about it.
Didn’t we see this coming? And if not, why didn’t we?
How do we invoke a no-fly zone when Qaddifi’s soldiers are no longer (or so they say) firing on their own people?
Okay. A few threats from the world and he backs off. So when we pull off and go home again, you know as well as the sun will come up tomorrow that he will resume his attacks, although rebels in the east are claiming that the attacks have not ceased.
Aside from telling the world, in the wake of one of the biggest earthquakes in the last century to hit Japan, that our relationship is “unshakeable,” TheOne finally came out and talked about this heartbreaking disaster during his NCAA picks.
He gave a 35 second yadda-yadda on how we should go to his government website and donate to help in the disaster. We all know the world is on pins and needles, waiting to see his picks. (Is that a simile or a metaphor or a mixed metaphor? My daughter is the English expert in this house and she’s not here to ask.)
Regardless, Japan is suffering and what is this president doing?
The Libyan rebels are begging for help and Qaddifi’s son says it will all be over in 48 hours. I don’t doubt him for a minute. How can we possibly institute a no-fly zone in enough time, even if we wanted to do that? And considering what’s happening in Egypt since they pushed Mubarak out, I’m inclined to say let them do whatever they want to do to each other. Women are being assaulted and raped in Egypt with abandon. I don’t know why any American would support military action to aid any Muslim group. What they are best at is killing each other, raping and maiming women and girls and let’s don’t forget — killing Israeli babies.
Oh, did I mention that wholesale food prices have risen 4% – the largest hick in over 35 years?
So, with the specter of a world imploding, TheOne and his family are packing for just ONE MORE VACATION to Rio and other South American nations.
But back to the brackets: I’m sure that just like his books that were ghost written by a dear friend – Bill Ayers – he was also coached by his brother-in-law on who to pick and why.
