  • Unfortunately, it takes more than a can of Raid to get rid of the vermin who don't belong here.

    We could cut all politicians salaries and tell them that not only do they need to raise money for their campaigns, but find sponsors for their livelihood too.

  • Oh Wait, I forgot, they already have sponsors, they are called lobbyists. So in essence they are double dipping.

  • I fully concur with this blog posting. Absolutely, NATO and Arab League must now be completely on board in a unified goal in respects to the blown out of control Libyan crisis - regardless of the politics, of what should have been done differently from the first move.

    The African Union must be part of this unified effort now too, as a pragmatic force combined with a necessary robust, collective effort to end the crisis.

    In regards to the best optimal airpower asset which could be currently employed in support of enforcing a 'no-tank, no-artillery' zone mission... well it would actually not be F-15 or F-16, or Rafale. In all irony, it would be from the 4-5 hr unrefueled endurance of Super Tucano flown off modified LHD (if the USMC had this capability already in place to supplement the mission)! Yes, such Super Tucano, perhaps patrolling at 22k-24k feet in packs of 6-8 aircraft, 24-7, would most cost-effectively counter the very hostile ground assault units which prolong this crisis.

    Respects to Libya in this terrible crisis and for reconciliation soon. May all sides be humbled. God have mercy on us all.

  • Sounds like a goat rope.
