Libyan Rebels Advancing to the REAR! A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
I watched a couple of commentators gently arguing with each other, a few days ago, about who was winning the fight in Libya.
The commentator from the left proclaimed the rebels were winning and she was interrupted by the commentator from the right who asked the piercing question: If they are winning why are they going in the wrong direction? He went on to say the rebels were going east while Gaddafi and his troops were in the west.
I had to laugh as I remembered the expression coined during the Korean conflict (WAR) when American troops were in retreat from the communist Chinese troops. The US commander declared his troops were not retreating; they were simply advancing in another direction.

What's the difference between a clock and Libyan rebels?
Clock says "tic tac" and goes forward. Libyan rebels say "tac tic" and go backward.
Less than 1000 rebels, almost $1B spent so far to support them.
Cool $1M per rebel.
According to rebel sources, they are being kicked not only by Daffy's army but by the civilians as well.
So, what is actually fascist NATO doing there?
Why the congress is silent about impeaching Obummer?
It is because Republicans are in bed with the Democrats. Savage is probably right. Maybe we really just have one party in this country.
