10lb Parrott

Libya and Rebellion

While the world is distracted by Japan, a brutal dictator makes his move to keep cotnrol at all costs. And may just do it.

Sometimes, one must make a stand. We have called for Quadaffi to leave, but done nothing more to support it. And it looks like me might hang in by using the Idi Amin model of "destroy all opposition." It's one thing to say you want them gone, but what have we done to support the rebellion? In real terms, I mean. Is this a Nevil Chamberlin moment?

As much as I say we can't play World Police, this is one time when we needed to do something, not just talk.
