Gates: Libya war not a vital US interest
From here

Obama’s speech last night was like Bush I for Gulf War I in ’91 and Bush II for Gulf War II in ’03. Same try at appealing to charity: the poor Libyans. Khadafy doesn’t have a nuke aimed at my house: I don’t care.

LRC’s Butler Shaffer:
The emperor made a pathetic effort to rationalize his unilateral attack on Libya by saying “I refused to wait for the images of slaughter.” His words were reminiscent of Condoleezza Rice’s earlier unfounded fear image of a “mushroom cloud.” If this guy is really troubled by the sight of slaughter, he might want to take a look at such publications as Der Spiegel, The Guardian, and Rolling Stone and view the images of American soldiers butchering and decapitating Afghan civilians.
Drawing: Khadaffy Duck. From here. Had that idea 30 years ago and was sure someone had drawn it by now.
