US intervention in Libya as Animal House

The US prepares a studied and rational response to the Libya revolt

Hillary is threatening about how ‘nothing is off the table’ in Libya, even as the rebels say they don’t want outside help. But protestations of the provincials on the ground has never deterred the US from doing something spectacularily stupid and ill-advised.

But America is setting ready to intervene anyway. What is this, Animal House? “I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part” and we’re just the guys to do it!

What’s that I hear in the background? Why it’s Billy Bragg singing, it’s all about the price of oil. Imagine that.
