So… maybe diversion, maybe disinfo, misinfo…. but the Transition Council has already put forth a draft, repeat draft, of a new constitution for Libya, calling for the state to be Islamic… and the source of law, Sharia.
I almost had to laugh… it was clear months ago, the flag being brandished in Benghazi was none other than the old Kingdom of Libya flag. When the King ruled, Libya was beyond poor (this is not an endorsement of Qaddafi!) and the main export, iirc, was salvage WW2 metal from the deserts…
If Sharia be it… then, I also read that the Pentagon admits to nearly 900 million, which is approaching a BILLION that they will admit to, for this Liberation. And the route to Tripoli, we are told, was cleared for the rebels by the British, Special Forces.
I am guessing the various reb factions were too busy (this is reported as well) calling down NATO strikes on each other.
Can’t y’all just get along?
Hey, clap. Clap some more! Be happy. Don’t worry.
I managed to get out today to buy stamps… they first offered me the Liberty Bell and without thinking, I said, I think its run outta gas… what else do you have? Thankfully the fellow behind the counter laughed.
You just don’t know these days, liberation is so fucking VIOLENT.
In other news, and this is a real laugh…. the earthquake apparently caused cracks in the Washington Monument. Closed indefinitely.
Doesn’t take much to shake DC up, it seems. Got the Washington Monument, got a spire on the National Cathedral.
Not ENOUGH damage, I say. Hit it again.
