This is a freaking joke, right? Are they serious about this sham?

I wish I had magic hover powers so I could fly around the city and watch.

Reports are coming in that Gaddafi was shot dead in his compound a short while ago.

Waiting on confirmation, though.

Some people are saying he's in Algeria.

Also his son Saif has been captured, and that is confirmed.

A round of applause for Sarkozy for making this possible, anyway.

None for Cameron, though. His party wants to cancel the Human Rights Act so **** him.

America doesn't pay for Britain or France's military just becuase they're in NATO.

Yeah, but their military power is so insignificant compared to ours. So who cares? lolol

Man, I love this stuff. It's like being at the movies but not quite as good. Can't wait to see what happens in Syria!

So, wait. AFAIK the whole thing has been stalled the last few months or so. Then in one night, they ride up to Tripoli, capture and/or kill the crazy dictator, and end the war but for the mopping up?

What just happened.
