Gates: No more Wars For The Jews ("In my opinion, any future defense secretary who advises the president to again send a big American land army into Asia or into the Middle East or Africa should 'have his head examined,' as General MacArthur so delicately put it.")

Jews: We demand another War For The Jews.  Remember that any involvement will soon require boots on the ground to protect the oil fields.

"Libyan opposition literally running protests from Washington." Note the complete absence of evidence for the headline.

Angry Arab:
"Hillary Clinton mentioned talks with members of the Libyan opposition.  The response from Libyan opponents of the Qadhdhafi regime inside Libya was instant: they denied such links.  The de facto leader of the Libyan opposition, the former Minister of Justice, denied such contacts to Aljazeera and even scoffed at the implications.  I think that Hillary was talking to Libyan dissidents in exile.  As you know, a broad front of Libyan opposition groups (known then as the Salvation Front) received very generous funding from the US, especially during the Reagan regime.  They used to put out a glossy monthly magazine and had nice publications and brochures.  But the Front later fragmented and US support disappeared.  The exile groups are not likely to play a role in the future of Libya--unless Ahmad Chalabi is now leading Iraq and I did not know."
"Unlike in Egypt and Tunisia, however, the Libyan uprising was preplanned and organized."  I don't even know what this means.  I do know the Italians aren't going to want to piss off the Libyan opposition unless they want to kiss their huge oil field investments good-bye (which is why you can rule out NATO participation).
