The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.


It's a vaunted skill!

Hey, if jumping over sedans is one of the abilities that are desperately needed to defeat the forces of Muammar Qaddafi, then I'm not one to complain. After all, the South has been at it for years. Kudos to Thaier al-Sudani for taking such an entertaining shot of the festivities!

Are you sure that we want him gone?  I'm not so sure that we do.  Gadafi (I'm not going to bother spelling his name correctly) has renounced terrorism as a weapon.  The 'rebels' have not.


I still think we should bow out of that contest.

I'm torn on this one -- I'm generally of the "Dictators Gotta Go" party, and look at war as being a great way for our guys to get a rare chance at live target practice... but the way this one's been conducted (ignoring American law in lieu of orders from a foreign entity) has rubbed me a bit backwards.

(Having a Nobel Peace Prize winner -- undeservedly, granted -- who once loudly decried illegal wars start it makes my objection all the stronger, but I'm sure that's already a given...)
