  • Where is Twitter outrage at Russia and China opposition to no-fly zone for Libya?
    Does Libya want a no-fly zone or not? Is that considered “help or intervention?” If they do want a no-fly zone, then why aren’t the tweets flying hard and fast that show outrage at Russia and China for opposing a UN Security Council resolution for a no-fly zone to be enforced by NATO? I follow Twitter #Libya and #Egypt religiously. First I heard, “Where...

They don’t want foreign military intervention. I’m...

  • Weather clearing Tripoli. Ferry sailed. No-Fly Zone Obama?
    Okay.  The internet tells me the weather is clearing in Tripoli Libya. 51 degrees F. Scattered clouds. Winds 12 mph. The ferry to evacuate Americans with guest Brits and Canadians should be sailing from Tripoli to Malta. No more threat of hostage-taking, like in Iraq. Obama you need to act. You need to show that you’re ready to put your money where you mouth is....

  • Obama says “exploring all options”
    “Exploring all options.” Those three words from Barack Obama would mean a lot to anyone who isn’t crazy. The problem, as everyone knows, is that Gaddafi is beyond hearing anything. But those around him are capable of hearing. Maybe they will get the message. It would be so easy if Obama could just fix it. I’m sure he wants to. At least he finally...
