"Gosh, Lois. Not even Nicolas Sarkozy can save us now."
As we speak, nobody knows what the Hell our mission is in Libya or who is going to lead it. We are awaiting Her Majesty the Secretary of State......
"I don't think that's funny."
...... to announce that NATO will be in charge. (I guess that Steering Committee got dropped.)
By the way, the word is.....
No, not kiss my ass, but Kinetic Military Action.
Yes, our action is Libya is not a war; it's a Kinetic Military Action.
By the way. Do we know who these folks are that we are supporting in Libya? Is this another "democratic movement"-or warring tribes?
Nobody asked me, but it's actually very elemental, my Dear Watson. First, you kill Qaddafi to pay him back for Pan Am 103. Then you go home, declare victory, and let the Libyans build their country with the help of the French chefs and wine makers.
Just think. Today, for the first time in their entire history, the French shot down an enemy plane, albeit a trainer plane. It's also the first time in recorded history that the French ever saved anyone. Let's hear it for the new leader of the free world!
And while this is all happening, Obama is in Brazil pledging help for the Petrobras oil company so the Brazilians can do what Obama and Cass Sunstein won't let the Americans do-drill for oil in the Gulf of Mexico.
And guess who is a major investor in Petrobras? George Soros, of course. And you think Haliburton/Cheney was a scandal?
Then Obama went to El Salvador, apologized for when we backed the guys fighting the commie revolutionaries, and pledged another $200 million to help Latin American countries fight drug trafficking.
About time we invested a little money in that effort.
Since I am a man of vision, I'll take a stab at looking into my crystal ball and predict what Middle Eastern country we will lob missiles into next now that Andrea Mitchell has explained the
The Obama doctrine is that whenever a government is harming its citizens and we have the support and authorization of the UN, we will act.
That means that Yemen, Bahrain, Syria, and Iran should be next, right?
But hold on there. A few years ago, this is what some back-bencher in Congress named Joe Biden had to say in 2007, when there was discussion of President George W Bush attacking Iran over that nuclear arms imbroglio.
And he didn't say it once....
Whatever happened to that guy?
But in all seriousness, I wish I was a smart guy like Jonathan Alter, for example, who could explain what our foreign policy is and how Obama has this big picture all figured out. Right now we have not one, not two, but three tar babies on our hands with 3 or 4 more around the next bend in the road.
I guess that's why it's called a Kinetic Military Action. Gotta move fast these days, you know.
