#3 I thought we weren't going to have collateral damage anymore after we got rid of The Bushitler? That once we gave up NationBuilding and limited ourselves to providing fire support to the murderers-of-the-week everything would get better?

#4 Koffee gets it right.
Just a sec---checking whether the Sun sets in the west.

#5 Note that this is the BBC. Does anyone think that the US MSM will report this way?
TFSM, according to the media here everything HAS gotten better.

#6 You know, it was odd yesterday morning. The initial morning news has gruff figures the first go-round, but the couple follow ups were very general non-specific. If a person didn't know better or care, it would have been lost between do I wash my dawg? and gunz iz bad! segments.
I knew something bad was brewing, thanks to Rantburg first and foremost, so I raised my eyebrows at the initial news casualties mention and was spotting for the follow up news. They most certainly did water it down.

#7 *local Kansas news, nothing three letter though an affiliate of them. Difficult to watch newscasters who know better have to use the catch phrases of the gun control bullet points.

#8 I am Gobsmacked. Kofi Annan told the truth about something!

#9 Not sure if he's right at all. Annan says the thugs bringin home the heavy weaponry were scrappin for Qadhaffy. My guess is they're more likely the ones that helped overthrow Q-man. Remember, those sympathetic rag-tag characters we came to know as the "Libyan Rebels".
