Earlier this week Britain, in an obvious sign of desperation, said they might accept Gaddafi remaining in Libya if he stepped down. A few days ago, the rebel’s military chief was assassinated by Islamist militia members.

Obama’s “day, not weeks” comment will haunt him in the 2012 presidential campaign, as well it should. He careened into this with no real plan and against the advice of the Pentagon.

The only possible gain is continued profits and job security for the military industrial complex, as our insane adventurism bankrupts the country.
