Our trans-national organization loving president is about to catch a lesson in why subjugating the US to the wonderful groups of enlightened, progressives he adores is a recipe for failure.
PARIS — The International Criminal Court in The Hague issued arrest warrants on Monday for Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, his son Seif al-Islam and his chief of intelligence, Abdullah Senussi, on charges of crimes against humanity, including murder and persecution, stemming from the first two weeks of the uprising in Libya that led to a NATO bombing campaign.
This is truly helpful to any efforts trying to get Qaddafi and his malevolent offspring to surrender and go hang out among the kind of Euros who love deposed dictators. He can't leave Libya now without risking getting cuffed and stuffed and spending the rest of his life in complete comfort while on trial for war crimes. Just ask the ghost of Slobodan Milosevic who spent five plus years on trial and never even got close to convicted. He died of natural causes, or perhaps boredom, not any justice from the Hague.
If Qaddafi had a reason to cling to power before, he has no option now. I am not a big fan of letting murderous tyrants skate, but if the alternative is continuing the farce we currently are not in charge of then pack up the tents and the drag queen's wardrobe and park him in one of the Muslim ghettoes in Paris, or Hamburg, or Copenhagen. Sadly that option is now a non-starter, so we are back to.....
Kill Qaddafi. It is the only actual mission in Libya that makes or made any sense and no amount of tap dancing by O can obscure that fact. It was nice to actually hear that spoken by one of our military commanders but I fear that may be a costly admission of the patently freaking obvious for his career. There does not seem to be much tolerance for announcements of the naked status of His Serene Majesty the Emperor Barack Hussein Obama II, Lord of the Flies, Keeper of the Hoops, Master of the Greens, and Protector of the Holy Cities of Honolulu and Chicago.
The solons of old Europe would love to have the US military volunteered under their care and tutelage as Obama has done for this non-war. They occasionally like to use some force, but cannot be troubled to pay for their own. Plus it would be much easier to keep us from doing any of that cowboy stuff we do. All in all, a goat rodeo of epic proportions.
