Nobel Peace Prize winner gets another scalp
Apparently Colonel Moammar Qaddafi was dragged from his hiding place in a filthy sewer drain and summarily executed with a bullet in his head earlier today. I was horrified by the video clip every time I watched it.
The price tag for our Libyan adventure was in the $1billion range. I hope Qaddafi's scalp and the utter chaos that ensues there for the next 20 years will have been worth it.
I know the British and French have had a much greater military presence there, but the US will take most of the heat for meddling again in the affairs of Arabs. I also wonder when the Nobel committee will notify Obama that they are taking back his Peace Prize, though wholly undeserved in the first place?
