Clown of Libya

Reader comment on item: Qaddafi's Empty Boast

Submitted by J Randall Peacher (United States), Apr 17, 2011 at 19:22

I worry about the budget battles going on in the Western nations; nations who have historically supported citizens under attack by dictator's or other thugs. We have let several slip under the radar screen of late; especially in Africa. This clown of Libya and his sons must be removed. It is a shame it has taken so long. It makes one wonder what the mindset of the military officers of Libya is for them to continue to kill their fellow citizens. It will be very important shortly to expect the Arab nations to request a NATO no-fly zone to protect Gaza against Israel. The difference between these situations is Israel being a democracy and the Arab nations being dictatorships. And more importantly, daily rocket attacks coming from Gaza, being fired by terrorists beside hospitals and schools requires a response by the nation of Israel to protect their population.
