Thingish Things

It’s taken almost 30 years, but, if reports are accurate, Muammar Gaddafi is about to go down — hard.

The allied operation against him wasn’t pretty, but it looks like it will accomplish its mission. President Obama and Hillary Clinton deserves a great deal of credit for taking the risk on this one. So does NATO. 

Gaddafi came into the consciousness of most Americans in 1986 when he ordered the bombing of a Berlin disco packed with U.S. servicemen.  Two of our soldiers were killed. Next was the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Scotland. There is a very good bio video courtesy of  the London Telegraph here.

Let’s hope Gaddafi  is apprehended shortly.  He has vowed to go down fighting. We’ll see…

But when it’s all said and done, can someone else please pay for the nation building? We’ve got our problems.
