You want proof of the viciousness of some human beings? Rolling Stone's expose of The Kill Team should be frightening enough about the depths of viciousness that some people will descend to. And don't say it's because these guys got trained to be killers yada yada. These guys were vicious *before* they joined the military, indeed, probably wouldn't have been allowed to join prior to the War on Brown People Everywhere and the resulting issues with recruiting that the Army has been having.
My best guess is that the typical pasty cheeto-stained-fingered Libertopian wanking off to photos of dead brown people in Mommy's basement would be scared shitless if these folks were walking down the streets of his city in full battle rattle with rules of engagement basically letting him shoot anybody he feels need killin'. As in, we'd need some adult Pampers big-time, yo.
For those of us who are incredulous at the changing rationales for our intervention in the Libyan civil war, Deputy National Security Adviser Denis McDonough has come to the rescue. He told reporters that "we don't make decisions about questions like intervention based on consistency or precedent. We make them based on how we can best advance our interests in the region." Thus, inconsistency is the consistent policy that we are trying to advance?
The White House has sent out legions of allies to defend his decision to intervene in a civil war. We were originally told that we simply wanted to maintain a no-fly zone. We are now actively assisting the rebels in their campaign and taking out government forces. What is most striking are the liberals who are defending the President and acknowledging that the distinction between Libya and Syria is probably oil (which we refer obliquely to as "our interests"). The key is that we no longer offer a pretense of principle or consistency. We appear now to simply be saying that we are the United States and can intervene whenever it suits our purposes.
I wonder if each wingnut yanks constitutional "facts" out of his or her own ass, or if there's one big community ass from which they all yank.

I, for one, think it is a good thing that there are fewer blacks in DC. One of the many benefits of urban improvement is that it makes all the blacks move out, because they really don't like to live anywhere but crime-ridden slums where they can sell drugs and mug people.
(CBS/AP) LONDON — World powers were meeting in London on Tuesday seeking to plot out an endgame for Muammar Qaddafi's tottering regime and to strike agreement on plans for Libya's future.Just sayin' ...
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Arab League and as many as 40 global foreign ministers were joining the talks — seeking to ratchet up pressure on Qaddafi to quit.
Addendum: And, again, just sayin', maybe we should send our own war criminals to The Hague before we demand the Libyans turn Gadhafy over.
I have to admit I'm enjoying watching Weepy, the strangely orange-hued Speaker of the House, deal with his coalition of water-head Teabaggers and Xristian Xraxies as he tries to get a budget passed. No wonder he can only get three weeks at a time.
- Teabaggers, morons that they are, only know how to subtract. And if they don't get their way slashing everything, they will say that they will shut down the government.
- The Xristian Xraxies won't vote for the budget unless pregnant women are strapped to a cot and forced to calf their rapist's baby, and/or strip gays of their rights is attached to the bill.
And then the Dims are there saying if you do either of those things, we won't vote either.
It's enough to give a man grey hair. If he weren't already dying it, that is.
