    This just disgusts me. What is McCain doing, calling these people his "heroes?"

    We probably should have known a little more about these people before we went to help them depose Qadaffi. Both sides screwed this one up. And the racial bent to this situation is worthy of a lot more attention than it is getting.

    Yes, we should stand in the way of democracy just because we don't agree with them.

    How very democratic of you.

    Who is saying that? My point is that we should have known who we were offering aid to before we started dropping bombs. They are killing African muslims simply because they are African. Is that democracy?

    I thought they were killing them because they are Muslims, which should make the FBI and several on SportsJournalists.com very happy.

    They are muslims...just a darker shade of brown. They are targeting blacks and using a percieved "loyalty to Qadaffi" as an excuse.

    You know, beheadings is just a bloodier, more archaic way to do what we do with lethal injection. Same end result. Only in Libya, the terrorist sons have a neat new soccer ball to kick in the streets.

    Unavailable for comment. She's still frustrated over Fidel Castro pulling out.

    We can also cull old articles from some politician calling Saddam Hussein a hero for fighting Iran, Pinochet a hero for fighting communists, or any number of despots we have supported in the past to suit our own needs.
