'Splain it to me, Lucy

See if I understand this Libya thing right: Libyan head-goon Mooahmer K. Daffy is killing off his own people in order to hold on to his title and his cash stash. Most of the world is naturally incensed by this savagery, so they go to the UN and pass a resolution authorizing a no-fly zone and possibly more, too. K. Daffy thumbs his nose at this resolution and keeps on killing off his people. World leaders will soon (?) hold a meeting and talk about exactly how/when/if to act.

Seems to me there are two choices....hit Mooahmer with everything you have immediately and take him out permanently, or walk away entirely. You have cajones or you don't. If you don't, don't make idle threats. We can do this ourselves today, or we can consult with the rest of the world, divvie up who gets to bomb what, and then dick around with it until Christmas.

Why would anyone take a UN resolution seriously? Has there ever been a more worthless organization? I take that back. They do some very good humanitarian work when it is totally uncontroversial and when somebody will write a check to cover the cost, including the graft that goes with it. But peacekeeping? Hahaha!

If we're going to butt in to another country's business, let's just do it and get it over with. Regardless of how it turns out you know we'll be cutting them a big "foreign aid" check to cover their re-building (re-slumming?) costs. 'Cause it makes us "feel better", and then we can go to the mall guilt-free. (Don't you hate it when you have to step over all those dead bodies while you're shoe shopping?)
