Gaddafi Forces Close In On Last Rebel Stronghold

"Gadhafi has his airplanes and they are bombing cities about 50 or 100 kilometers from here. To tell you, as a supporter of Obama, I’m totally, as most of the Libyan people are, disappointed. And here is a simple equation; it is not really complicated – Gadhafi will go sooner or later, and I think the Libyan people will remember who their friends are [and] who stood by them in their hour of need.” The Libyan people should be counted on to remember who their enemies were and who abandoned them in their hour of need, too.

The "realists" who betrayed the Libyan people didn't even get honorable mention for their cowardice: Gaddafi has announced that Germany, Russia and China would now be rewarded with business deals and oil contracts. Nice job, pipsqueaks. "Not in your name" indeed. Remember Benghazi.

"Yes We Can," translated:

On Monday, the pro-Obama CNN News sent Wolf Bliter to accompany Hillary CLinton on her trip to Europe(given CNN's slavishly pro-Obama reporting, the White House as the pool reporter).

Wolf Blitzer hosts the CNN flagshop evening show, "the Situation Room", from 5pm-7pm EST. And from Brussels, Blitzer hosted the Monday show (11pm. his time). And during the two-hour program, Blitzer mentioned the Gadhafi sweep across Libya in exactly one sentence, and mentioned Hillary's do-nothingness in one other sentence. Nearly all of the two hours was spent on Japan.

So CNN shipped Blitzer all the way over to Europe, to report on Japan, since Clinton is doing and saying absolutely nothing. Unbelievable.

An update: perhaps I was being a tad unfair to CNN's Wolf Blitzer in the above comment. Today (Wednesday March 16) Wolf did interview Hillary Clinton in Egypt -- an he did ask the hard question, comparing Barak Obama's do-nothingness to when then-President Bill CLinton's did nothing during the Rwandan genocide.

But Hillary just countered by saying something to the effect that the U.S. couldn't interviene in every hotspot, etc.

But Blitzer should have countered that the impending Gadhafi victory is a pathbreaking historical event: Gadhafi is telling the dictators to use murderous treatment against dissidents. The failed 2011 Arab uprisings will be just that. And CNN and the other pro-Obama media could care less.

It doesn't look good. The Colonel says he'll have Benghazi 'cleansed' by Friday. The UN wants a timeout:

The UN just passed the no-fly zone. Apparently the US changed its mind between last night and today.
