I Won’t Be Shedding Any Tears That All Three Spelling Versions of Murderous Muammar Gaddafi

…seem to have met their end at last. May he roast on a spit that he has to carve himself.

What I am appalled by is an American President who can tout “American Leadership” in a statement patting himself on the back for what was basically the assassination cream-on-top of a patently illegal operation to begin with. Leadership would have BEEN calling out to Iranians on rooftops desperate for encouragement.

Obama couldn’t lead himself to the men’s room.

So, is that what our proud military’s for? To flush out the easy-target dirtbag of choice, who can then (eventually) can be pulled out of a pipe by a random hodgepodge of “Freedom Fighters”, beaten to a pulp and summarily executed there on the shoulder of the highway, all the while we can claim no boots on the ground and no blood on lily white hands?

Wootwoot, and all in an embarrassing, expensive, agonizingly long 157 days (not weeks)?

How revolting.

Where’s President Big Leader’s big plan for the aftermath? Who’s in charge? Which scurvy group of Freedom Fighters/rebels/scruffy nerfherders IS the administration talking to, since every town is taking credit for fighting the hardest and every faction is already jockeying for positions in power?

Where is Obama going to be when missles that Gaddafi kept corralled appear alongside an American airliner IN THE SKY, or some of the as yet undiscovered (and now, maybe never-to-be-accounted-for) chemical stockpiles vanish and wind up in hands itching to use them against us? Will he be in the Rose Garden for that announcement?

Gaddafi richly deserved to die a gruesome death a long time ago, but the fact remains that Obama went into this on the flimsiest of justifications and should be ashamed, if he had any capacity for that particular emotion. (As if.) The precedent this has set ~ that the United States can arbitrarily pick and choose another country’s leader, however reviled the individual ~ and use force to hound him from office, to his death at the hands of RABBLE, not even some faux JUSTICE…is a disgusting thought. If WE wanted Gaddafi, then don’t hide behind “protecting” third century goatherders.

We HAD our chance and chose NOT to do it THEN. You don’t get do-over regime change twenty years later, because a buddy G7 country is worried about uninterrupted access to CHEAP OIL.

And really. That’s all this was about.

It could easily turn into a snake pit that could bite us in the ass.

What has Obama touched that has been golden afterward?
UPDATE: Class act, all around.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton shared a laugh with a television news reporter moments after hearing deposed Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi had been killed.

We came, we saw, he died,” she joked when told of news reports of Qaddafi’s death by an aide in between formal interviews.

Ha ha la dee loser da.

I am beyond disgust with the lot of them. “American Leadership”, my ass.

    What an unprofessional thing for a United Secretary of State to say. You can add juvenile and brutish as well. as well. They seem to conduct business as some high school street gang would.

    Couldn’t lead himself to the men’s room. Unfortunately, I can’t disagree with that. “Leading from the rear.”, what a horrible joke. Our current and future adversaries must thing everyday is Christmas with this guy.

    My favorite headline from the last few days:

    Qadaffi shot dead. Found in a lion’s suit in Ohio.

    And Bush is a “cowboy”…

    Good one Skylar! We should have wacked Q-ball back when we had real justification. All this BS about NATO taking the lead no U.S. troops on the ground. We did a lot of the bombing, all the targeting, all the refueling and did you notice all the rebels wearing old U.S. military uniforms? Now where did they come from. You can bet your ass there were U.S. personnel on the ground. I’m not sad he’s dead but why would any dictator give up power now? They will all fight to the death.

    And talk about the kind of thing that can come around to bite you in the ass.

    Obama’s triumphalism lends credence to the Islamist notion that America is unwilling to put its money where its mouth is.

    HRC lends credence to the notion that women should be immured in sackcloth.

    Billary needs a swift kick in the ass. Obama needs one as well, but his head is in the way.
