World Powers Deeply Concerned For Humanity, Debate No-Fly Zone

by Riley Waggaman

You're always thinking about war stuff!

  • Gadhafi has tens of billions of dollars stashed all over Tripoli, according to anonymous “American intelligence officials” who probably just pulled that estimate out of their hairy cornholes. So despite an international freeze on all of Gadhafi’s assets, The Crazy Colonel could still easily bankroll his mercenary army for 1,000 years, unless of course NATO reluctantly intervenes and saves all that delicious oil, reluctantly. Meanwhile, NATO defense ministers are meeting today to discuss the possibility of implementing a no-fly zone over Libya, and other “international responses” to this civil war. France has already recognized Libya’s rebel leadership, and Obama says he will wait for “European and Arab support” before we invade — what a gentleman! When NATO does eventually intervene, it will be for “humanitarian purposes,” just like when the Concerned World Powers invaded Sudan and stopped the ongoing genocide in Darfur! Haha. [NYT/CNN]
  • The Dalai Lama announced that he will cede his political responsibilities to “a leader elected freely by the Tibetan people.” [BBC]
  • “Only 1 American in 7 has faith a lasting economic recovery has taken hold and a plurality say they are personally worse off than they were two years ago.” [Bloomberg via Political Wire]

Ameriduh today: Wingnuts: "We must go to war in Libya and save the Moslems from the terr'ist Gadfly!"

Wingnuts: Right after we witchhunt Moslems in Congress for the terrorizms.

Wingnuts: "We're Broke"

Democrats: "Wait. What??!"

It's blood for oil!

Note to Kim Jong Il… it's not your half assed barely functioning joke of a thing you call a nukular program that keeps you US America free… it's the fact that you have nothing of value that the West wants that keeps you free. Otherwise you'd get strange bedfellows like France, China, Roosha and the US America to bomb your asses for freedums.

I love Realpolitik.

They actually want the economy to be bad so, like in the midterms, they can blame it on Obama and win in 2012; they do not give a shit at all about the American people, only their own political fortune so they can continue to rob from the poor to give to the rich.

Did anyone else hear last night, (on Maddow?), that Michigan had done some obscene, dumb thing as well? Something about dismantling local municipalities and replacing them with a person appointed by the Governor?

SorosBot March 10, 2011 at 9:36 am

It's ridiculous; it basically would allow the Governor to appoint emergency town managers with pretty much absolute power over a municipality that in his opinion faces a financial crisis, including the power to fire local elected officials: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/41998710/ns/politics-

You know, Rome had an emergency position like that; Julius Caesar once held it. What was it called again? Dic-something, I think…

Not only that, but when our senate minority leader, Gretchen Whitmer (go look her up on youtube), tried to put a cap on the pay of these emergency managers so that they couldn't make more than the governor, the Republicans voted down the amendment, though, to their credit, the Lt. Governor had to break the tie as a bunch of Republicans bolted and sided with the Democrats on the amendment. This isn't about saving anyone any money. It's a blatant power grab.

BTW, Whitmer taunted the tea party ("Where's the tea party, now?") and it was a thing of beauty.

You know, I think I've realized why members of the libertarian cult are always big on "this is a republic, not a democracy" as if they're saying something profound. They want America to go to a system like that of the Roman Republic, in which the rights of citizens was determined by their wealth, with the people divided into distinct classes with progressively more rights in creating the law.

ManchuCandidate March 10, 2011 at 9:43 am

Which would make sense if I knew any Libertarian who was a success and wasn't a low level IT guy with the interpersonal skills of a Wolverine with hemorrhoids or a loser who keeps getting fired because he pisses people off with his Aspergers like personality.

SorosBot March 10, 2011 at 9:50 am

But they know, once the power of the One True Holy Free Market is realized, they will no longer be held down by the evil of Socialism but rise to take their rightful place among the masters because they are just inherently better than everyone else, as proven by their acceptance of the Light of the Market and Its' great prophet Ayn.

"No-fly-zone" is such a fascinating piece of newspeak. What it means is "establish air superiority," which in modern warfare almost equates to "conquer." Just without the raping.

But "no-fly-zone" is so much more peaceful, it brings to mind those signs that say "No Running In Pool Area."

gef05 March 10, 2011 at 10:13 am

Much newspeak reminds me of the phrase "slightly pregnant."

wee[redacted] March 10, 2011 at 10:34 am

And speaking of pregnant moments, we should remember that to create a No-Fly-Zone first requires an act of war. Or at least that is generally how blowing-up all of a country's air defense capability is usually perceived.

edit: see V572625694, below for an earlier post on this. sorries

But bombing them will make Obama more like his hero, Raygun.

jus_wonderin March 10, 2011 at 11:03 am

I do wonder how we can/will pay for this???? Does anyone have GWBs number, I want to ask him his advice.

Sometimes, we just need to slow down. I don't want to get into another relationship without taking some time. Iraq taught me some lessons.

Weenus299 March 10, 2011 at 10:49 am

We're wanting to go do Libya only because we're afraid Iran will reject us.

jus_wonderin March 10, 2011 at 11:06 am

I agree. I don't think Iraq was ready for a relationship. When we were together, it took forever to get to first base and damn she was high maintenance.

It is: "I am such a wussy I won't try to make a comment on this. I will just passively aggressively click this Caeser thingy."

We're worse off because Boehner has been stymied in his effort to personally open one million new "jarbs".

Oh, he atypical of the typical IT guy. He is nice, helpful and doesn't try to make you feel like a dumbass. And, I like to unplug something from the battery backup so he has to get under my desk. grin.

"Only 1 American in 7 has faith a lasting economic recovery has taken hold and a plurality say they are personally worse off than they were two years ago.”

And Tennessee Republicans are busy trying to ban Sharia law and create a state currency and allow people to carry guns any damn place they please, rather than focus on the economy and jobs. Why do workers vote for these clowns, again?

Hey – you gotta stick with your strengths. It's what they do.

Well, I just learned who the Koch Brothers et. al. use as their role model: the richest motherfucker in the World, at $74 Billion, with a "B", is a Mexican. Compare that personal fortune against the average Messican and you've got something worth shooting for. All in good time, Kochsuckers, all in good time… http://aje.me/go9Bzz

I would bet my soul he is as crooked as a dog's hind leg.

"NATO" this, "NATO" that… it's their back yard, why can't this be an "EU" "police action" for once?

If the Europeans were to go on the offensive without the US John Bolton would wet his pants and throw himself on the floor, kicking and screaming.

Daewoo is Korean for "We finance anyone"

Well how can we be truly free if, at any moment, we might get scared that some brown guy might be ter'ist who might blow up the plane? To prevent that we need a pointless invasive search that makes it look like the TSA is doing everything they can to protect us.

horsedreamer_1 March 10, 2011 at 10:41 am

There it is!

horsedreamer_1 March 10, 2011 at 10:42 am

Don't have to worry about the (un)dead calling the next morning.

The focus is thrown on the brown people to keep people from seeing what the rich, white pasty guys are doing to America.

I was at the Home Depot in San Diego and there were Mexican gentlemen who were holding a cardboard sign that said "2" I asked the woman next to me what that meant. She said they were here to take our jobs and that meant "2 men for hire" (doing yard work.) I asked what she did for a living and she said she was a nurse. I asked her, "where do they keep they stethoscopes?" She didn't get it and probably never will.

horsedreamer_1 March 10, 2011 at 11:08 am

Enfermero? Que verguenza! Es trabajo para mujeres!

Lascauxcaveman March 10, 2011 at 12:03 pm

Nurse (while driving home 1 hour later) "D'oh!"

jus_wonderin March 10, 2011 at 11:17 am

But they break so easily.

Too gross?

Lascauxcaveman March 10, 2011 at 11:51 am

Guys, I think the original comment was about the Korea to the north, not the one that's swimming in Samsungs and Hyundais.

Hell, if they had any of that stuff, they could trade it for food and not be all starvin' and shit.

Hell, wouldn't it be funny if someone convinced Kim Il Soong (or whatever) to take all the moneys from their nuke program and make a really cheap electric car. It wouldn't even have to be very good to sell pretty well; check out what Hyundais looked like around 1989 or so.

Better yet, they attract early birds, which are even better eatin'.

Couldn't have looked worse than the Pacer or the Yugo.
