Battle against Gaddafi...
(PASO ROBLES, Calif.) - Here’s a thought that could more quickly put an end to the forces loyal to Gaddafi against the insurgency:
Avoid the armament of pro-Gaddafi troops, and go after the source of their remuneration. If the pro-forces aren’t paid, I’ll bet they will stop fighting. It’s a rule among mercenaries; no gold, no fight!
And that ought to open the flood gates for the insurgents to capture Tripoli with little or no further assistance from the International Community. Isn’t that what we really want?
Then the IC can dwell on helping the citizens to write a Constitution based on Democratic principles as a model for other Middle Eastern Nations seeking a similar end.
I don’t see why the IC should become otherwise involved.
The prefix of REV. before one’s name is no guarantee that the person is a Christian, let alone a preacher of Truth. The so-called Rev. Mike Huckabee presumes to be a man of God, but even that is doubtful.
For he, as do so many Evangelists, make up their Gospels as they go along.
Rev. Huckabee is a pretender whose homilies are aimed at the Republican base who are trained to believe and accept as truth anything their leaders tell them.
