UC says...Go get him!
Hooray! U.N. authorizes military action to protect civilians. Qaddafi had just gotten through declaring to those who resist his dictatorship "We will find you in your closets. We will have no mercy and no pity." Very nice. Hopefully it's not too late to stop Qaddafi's forces, but it's never too late to go after a homicidal sociopath, and it's not as though there's any doubt Qaddafi fits this bill. After all, what's the point in having all this expensive hardware if you're not going to use it on someone truly deserving... someone like Colonel Mo.
Mr. Obama, you on occasion compare yourself to Ronald Reagan. Here's a great opportunity to try to make this a bit more than specious rhetoric.
I'll have a more thoughtful post on dictators and uprisings soon, I hope...but for now, here's a wish that Mr. Qaddafi's reign is over.

Footnote: Of course, Lew Rockwell laments the U.N. authorization against Qaddafi. You see, it's all a plot against Muslim peoples and China, for oil. His insane rant has to be seen to be believed. Anarchists for Qaddafi, good grief...but well up to his usual standards.
