That darn Gadhafi. Why won’t he go away? Secretary of Defense Hillary Clinton says he must go, President Obama says he must go, even Republican John McCain says he must go.
Not only that, the U.N. resolution supports the rebels, whoever they are, and says its OK to bomb the heck out of Gadhafi’s troops, trucks and tanks and other distasteful accouterments. Yet, there he is, riding around in an automobile, sticking out his tongue at us and telling us we are useless numskulls.
So now the thought is to sneak in help and show the rebels, whoever they are, how to aim their guns and use quiet squad tactics. Shooting into the air and yodeling loudly doesn’t really scare anyone and is not cost-effective in the least.
We have spent more than half a billion dollars on this effort and, like the Mariners, we could use a good win over a weak team. The whole thing is really embarrassing, is it not?
