    It's been an interesting week, to say the least. Obama, fresh from his personal takedown of Osama Bin Laden, (busssshtttttt – excuse me, little sneeze there) - felt like he needed to get back in the Saddle and take Bashir al-Assad down a couple of pegs. Epic military exploits on the battlefield, make a Commander-in-chief hungry for more. He ordered a contingent of warships over to the Eastern Mediterranean including the USS Mahan and the USS Ramage, to stand by for orders to launch cruise missiles - which with some luck might miss the Presidential palace, but kill some civilians...

    Gadhafi Loyalists Still Battling New Western-backed Rulers in Libya Written by Alex Newman A year after the execution of former Libyan despot Moammar Gadhafi at the hands of Western-backed rebels, forces opposed to the new Tripoli-based regime ruling parts of Libya are still fighting on. According to news reports, assorted Libyan militias supposedly aligned with the embattled new government have been shelling the Gadhafi-loyalist stronghold of Bani Walid all weekend in a bid to quash the late dictator’s remaining die-hard supporters. Officials with the new government said the fighting reflected the fact that not all of Libya had been “liberated”...
