No Cure For That

No one will argue with the fact that Moammar Gadhafi is crazy. Not crazy like your eccentric college roommate who you like hanging out with from time to time but would never actually want to trade places with, but crazy in an evil villain, cartoonish Dr. Strangelove kind of way. However, let me ask you a question and ask you to hold off on answering for 180 seconds: is he any crazier than Barack Obama?

"Gadhafi has lost the legitimacy to govern, and it is time for him to go without further violence or delay,"  said U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, and then added by way of direct threat: "No option is off the table."

British Prime Minister David Cameron, continuing the quaint tradition of Britain walking in lockstep with Washington told lawmakers: "We do not in any way rule out the use of military assets" to deal with Gadhafi's regime.

Gadhafi, the man behind the most brutal crackdown of any Arab during the current wave of popular uprisings going viral in the middle east, played the part of the batshit crazy Dr. Evil for the ABC News cameras in an interview with Christine Amanpour when he said, totally deadpan (no pun) that there are no protests in the streets & laughed off a question about whether he would acquiesce to Barack Obama’s demand that he step down:

"My people love me. They would die for me," he said.

"It sounds, just frankly, delusional," said U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice. She added that Gadhafi's behavior, including laughing on camera in TV interviews amid the chaos, "underscores how unfit he is to lead and how disconnected he is from reality."

It is hard to argue with that sentiment.

And yet, what do the following facts do to disprove my thesis that our current leaders, Obama included, are unfit to lead and disconnected from reality: We are a country that spends $100 billion a year waging war in Afghanistan that 2/3 of the U.S. population is against and even now more and more military hawks claim is a lost cause, while legislators wrangle over how to cut $100 billion from the budget without any meaningful mention or debate about cutting war spending.


Isn’t it time that a main-stream journalist, like Anderson Cooper, or Brian Williams, or Christian Amanpour- who apparently can get an interview with anyone she wants, has a sit down with President Obama, and underscores that in continuing the Bush doctrine of preventative war, in doing nothing to disprove Martin Luther King’s assessment that the United States Government is the greatest purveyor of violence in the world, funding the military at a rate exceeds the spending of the next 16 nations combined underscores how unfit Obama is to lead and how disconnected he is from reality?
