Humorous take on Libya, seriously funny

After hearing the quite unfunny news earlier this month of a US General saying that there is some serious consideration of deploying US troops to the ground in Libya, I needed a serious humor break, which came in the form of a post by Planet Moron entitled: "It's hard to turn the other cheek when no one slapped you in the first place." The humorist writes:

For weeks, Libya had brazenly not attacked the United States of America. As each day passed, artillery shells rained down on people who were not Americans destroying buildings that were not owned or occupied by Americans in a country that was not America.

That last one might have been the breaking point.

But the United States was not the only country not being attacked by Libya. France had endured weeks of its national interests being unthreatened in any obvious manner while in the United Kingdom woman and children alike went about their daily business which is completely understandable given they were not in any danger.

Clearly, the world had no choice but to embark on an urgent humanitarian mission.
