Standard for a leftist -

take credit for unmeasurable benefits,
ignore unmeasurable harm.

6:00pm James Bays, Al Jazeera’s correspondent in Benghazi, said there is a “thank you” rally taking place there.
People have gathered to thank Britain, France, the UN, and Qatar - the reason for it is to thank international nations that have taken part in this air campaign.
If you asked those people they’d say they’d like more air strikes until the members of their family, who are opposition fighters, make their way to Tripoli.
Every family has someone who has gone towards the front line.”

Probably true. 2,500 al Quida backed, Muslim Brotherhood backed, armed jihadists.

He’s right, lives have been saved by this intervention. However, if that is so, why didn’t he intervene two-three weeks ago and saved even more lives? I wouldn’t call it particularly timely.

Yes, but you know dam that that number has been seasonally adjusted...and in addition to being totally unexpected that number will have to be revised downward next week.

Zer0 is stimulating the funeral industry in Libya, so her has “created” work for the local undertakers. There is an up side to Barry's “Most Excellent Libyan Adventure.”
