#1 What kind of an idiot thought that Arabs won't commit atrocities?

#2 What kind of idiot would expect a population that has known nothing but violence to be humane in the treatment of their former oppressors or their agents?

The American MSM and their masters the Socialist/Nationalist Democrats.

#4 I would expect it in any civil war. If I found foreign mercenaries supporting the government forces suppressing me here in a war, I surely would shoot them in the back of the head and dump them in a ditch.

#5 This would appear to be something to avoid, Mr President.

#6 "This would appear to be something to avoid, Mr President."

So he'll plunge right in, of course. :-(

#7 What is probably the most harrowing of the clips depicts a public beheading. A man with a long knife can be seen alternately sawing and hacking at the neck of a man who has been suspended upside-down. The victim's inert body is soaked in blood. The beheading takes place in front of a burnt-out building in what appears to be a public square. The Dutch public broadcaster NOS has identified the location as the main square of the rebel capital of Benghazi.

I don't think Gaddafi the Commie has done anything remotely like this. This is jihadist theater - designed simultaneously to frighten non-jihadists and recruit believers of a similar bent. All the more reason to hope that Gaddafi liquidates the opposition.

#8 Somehow, I am starting to believe I would derive some sort of perverse satisfaction from seeing Moo-mar come out on top of this.

Most importantly, because it'd be perceived (by some) as a defeat for Bambi.

#9 What kind of an idiot thought that Arabs won't commit atrocities?

The ones that bought the line that this group would be in the mode of other so-called freedom fighters?

There is a stone wall in a cemetary in Lockerbie I would invite you to visit.

#11 There is a stone wall in a cemetary in Lockerbie I would invite you to visit.

And there is a site in downtown Manhattan, under which I was walking in the subway tunnel one sunny morning when word came that a bomb had detonated in the World Trade Center, requiring that all trains be rerouted uptown. Just as we quickly overlooked the tens of millions killed by our former Nazi and Shintoist enemies as the Iron Curtain came down over the Eastern Bloc and an increasing part of the Third World, we may find it advantageous overlook incidents between us and some of the Commies who scored points against us - especially in view of the fact that jihadists killed thousands back in the continental United States. In looking back at the Lockerbie incident, I think I've just figured out why Sarkozy seems to want Gaddafi out at any cost - UTA 772 (France's version of Pan Am 103).
