    Let the celebrations begin in the Oval Office, Gadhafi is dead!!

    So who else should be next on Obama's list? Also, is the world a better place now?

    You know, I grow a little more wary every day posting negative things about "the man". Could I be next?

    A number of far-right doctrinaires on this forum come to mind, how about you?

    Marco Rubio was already on Fox News desperately trying to see that Obama doesn't get any credit.

    Well its a fine rope to walk because Obama is on record saying that Gadhafi was not the target, rather, it was to provide air defense for the rebels. However, right before he was killed it seems a drone had attacked him from the sky, which points to the fact that Gadhafi was the target all along.

    So on the one hand, you don't want to look like an international hit man but, on the other hand, you want to take credit for killing a "bad" guy.

    Make no mistake, the politician born in Chicago politics is just as much of a bad arse as Capone ever was, maybe more so.

    BTW, how is that new war in Uganda going? It seems that Obama is obsessed with Africa....unless it is Christians dying in the Sudan that is.

    It looked pretty chaotic. But I'm not certain I would judge them as "animals." Some of these people have probably lost loved ones under his brutality. Were the Italians who strung up Mussolini also animals?

    But it also looked like some of them (in Libya) were trying to prevent further harm to him and they did head to a hospital.

    Could it be that the savagery of the operation would reveal something about the political maturity of the Libyan rebels? Could it be that these frenzied mobs will prove to be incapable of conforming to international standards of civilized behavior?

    Perhaps we should indeed ponder these questions before fully embracing the revolution, if things get out of control the West shouldn't rule out invasion and the subsequent establishment of a proper government in Libya, IMHO.
