Happy Now?

Today is Monday, 21 March 2011.

M. Gaddafi has never led a legitimate government of Libya. He and his “crew” (in the Mafia sense) seized power as military gangsters, and have, as military gangsters, repressed and exploited Libyans for more than forty years. They are simply Gambinos with gaudy costumes.

As such, Gaddafi has never been an anti-colonialist or a socialist. His laughable "masterpiece", The Green Book, is bunkum worthy of a leader of the Tea Partei. My copy is in a box somewhere, but this excerpt from Wikipedia is a fine example of the quality of his “thought” (in official translation).

"If one group of people wears white clothes in mourning and another group puts on black, the sentiment of each group will be adjusted according to these two colours, i.e., one group rejects the black colour on such an occasion while the other one prefers it, and vice versa. Such a sentiment leaves its physical effect on the cells as well as on the genes in the body. This adaptation, will be transmitted by inheritance. The inheritors automatically reject the colour rejected by the legator as a result of inheriting the sentiment of their legator. Consequently, people are only harmonious with their own arts and heritage. They are not harmonious with the arts of others because of heredity, even though those people, who differ in heritage, speak a single common language."[

WTF, as they say on Twitter.

People are dying, and I can’t be happy about that, even, for very long, the deaths of the wicked. At least, however, The Gaddafi crime family has been halted just before they overran Benghazi and began mass executions.

I hope that the bombings and no-fly zone will create conditions in which Gaddafi’s subordinates overthrow the regime, send him and his sons to The Hague for trial, cede power to the civilian opposition, and return to their barracks.

I fear, however, that the indifference and dawdling of the Obama regime may lead to stalemate.

You are happy now - you got a chance to expound on your previous column. And I am happy because I now more fully understand your view point. Thank you.
