Doubly Volunteered

Mark Steyn: Do-gooders in a land with no good guys | military, gadhafi, way - Opinion - The Orange County Register

Well written in a humorously cynical manner sure to make BO worshipers cringe. It is sad, sad, sad -- so many good points, so very few ways to see how anyone could defend our current lunacy. This from BO takes the cake though ...
"That's why building this international coalition has been so important," he said the other day. "It is our military that is being volunteered by others to carry out missions that are important not only to us, but are important internationally."

Huh? Our volunteer army -- volunteers to serve and protect AMERICA have been "volunteered by others"? Not BO, apparently he just agreed that folks that signed up to protect their own nation should be selected by some combination of the Arab League and France to go in to dethrone a lunatic that has been just as loony for 30 years. Why now?

There are a TON of good / sad / amazing / observation sin here ... for example.

Four years ago, President Sarkozy hosted a state visit for Col. Gadhafi, his personal security detail of 30 virgins, his favorite camel and a 400-strong entourage that helped pitch his tent in the heart of Paris. Given that London and Paris have the third- and fourth-biggest military budgets on the planet and that between them they know everything about Gadhafi's elite troops, sleeping arrangements, guard-babes and dromedaries, why couldn't they take him out? But no: They, too, decided to volunteer the U.S. military.
