No one is more surprised than me (not that my opinion counts) how well this Libya adventure has turned out. I would have or did predict protracted war turning into a quagmire.
Gaddafi is dead. Caught like the rat he was, hiding in a hole (just like Saddam Hussein), and his corpse apparently messed with something like Mussolini (although no hanging upside down from a street lamp, as far as I know).
So I have to give one to our commander-in-chief, and this follows up on the excellent dispatch of Osama Bin Laden.
Also this was done under the cover of NATO (way to go!).
Of course I may seem like I am slighting the ones who actually bagged him, that is the Libyan rebels, but they have had the support of Obama and NATO in all of this — but way to go guys (but who knows if they might not turn on us some day?).
Now that the world-wide terror supporter is dead, let’s get out while the getting is good and let the Arabs fight one another or hopefully come to a peaceful resolution as to who runs what.
Obama (with the help of others) scores another victory in the war on terror.
And I reluctantly give credit to George W. Bush who sent out the message and set the tone for U.S. policy that says to terrorist leaders: “you can run but you can’t hide (forever)”.
