    'I think the No-Fly-Zone aspect of the mission has been accomplished'


    What? The No-Fly-Zone aspect of the mission? I thought the White House said the No-Fly-Zone was the mission?

    March 27th: Mission Creep is now official

    Tell us, Mister Gates, just what is the rest of the mission?

    We were told the No-Fly-Zone was what we were doing to achieve that.

    According to Gates, that mission objective has been achieved.

    So.... why are we still in Libya? Why are we attacking new targets not related to the ability of planes to take-off and fly?

    You mean like when George W. Bush led a special forces team against Saddam Hussien's strong hold and with his bare fists took the gun out of his hands and knocked him silly?

    That was great..wasn't it?

    Was better then being too big of a pussy to stand up to our enemies all the while turning a cheek to our allies. I would have to say yes, it was great.
