Over at Terry Glavin's Chronicles and Dissent, Joe Mufferaw speculates on how the Mad Dog Gaddafi's investments in Britain might be used now to help protect the Libyan people. First, sell his North London estate for a tidy sum. Next, go shopping for a party crasher.
Ordinance specs and details are way above my pay grade but by the looks of them I'm thinking at least one of those bastards should be capable of piercing the velour that Big Daddy Moammar uses to make that fancy tent of his. Delivering one of these nosegays would be way cheaper than a conventional ground-troops invasion, it seems fair to guess. Plus, since the whole point is to protect the Libyan people, we'd have few of those firecracker packs left over in case any of Big Mo's sons or his generals needed to be given a short, sharp shock.
The Libyan people have had to put up with more than 40 years of Pyongyang-On-The-Mediterranean, and yet it was only three days ago that the British government ordered UK gun firms to stop providing the Libyan regime with "security equipment" - the delicate English euphemism for massacre gear. Equally useless and just as delicate: Human Rights Watch.
