From The Halls Of Montezuma, To The House of Gaddafi...
From the Halls of Montezuma to the House of Gaddafi.... Should those be the new opening words of the Marine Corps hymn? I sure hope not. I wouldn't want to live in Libya, but I don't think it's the US's responsibility to play policeman of the world and start another absurdly expensive middle eastern war of imperialist expansion.
My question is... how does a man who looks like an ugly drag queen hold on to power for 30 years? Look at his picture up above... with all his billions of dollars, this man can't afford a decent plastic surgeon? How about paying Bravo for a bit part on What Not to Wear? And this guy ruled a whole country for 3 decades? It almost sounds like a bad GEICO commercial. "Ruling Libya for 30 years is so easy, even a caveman could do it!"
It's interesting to see how three adjacent countries are all going through a revolution at the same time. Is the CIA funding uprisings or something? It wouldn't be the first time the US did such a thing (in 1953, the CIA put the Shah back in power by bankrolling an uprising in Iran). If they did it before, well maybe they are doing it again now. Hey, CIA, if you have money you don't know what to do with, how about funding my heli skiing adventures? Sounds much more important (at least to me) than overthrowing some ugly dude in a clown costume.
