Last night a grateful nation sat at the edge of their chairs watching the International Community’s 9th Vice President answer each and every possible question about the US involvement in Libya, destroy each and every false choice, and demolish all logical inconsistencies and political opposition.
He clearly articulated the name of the Libyan Rebels’ leadership. He provided precise estimates on the percentage of the Rebels who are Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, al-Qaeda etc. He traced exactly who is financing the Rebel war effort. He provided precise number of civilians killed by Qadhafi and the Rebels. He provided estimates on how many civilians will be saved and announced an accounting of such based on the successful “job saved” figures from the Stimulus. He convincingly detailed why this isn’t a civil war and why we had to intervene in Libya and not in Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, Syria, Iran and Ivory Coast.
And then just when viewers didn’t think that they could absorb any more facts, he provided a history of NATO and who finances it and staffs it. He detailed the US influence in NATO.
But despite this over the top brilliant performance, the was one lone skeptic among 6 Billion world citizens who believed the mission is to get Gadhafi and his creative fashion ideas out of Libya and securely under the leadership of European Haute Couture Fashion Houses.
