Hi Owly,I'm sure that

Hi Owly,

I'm sure that relations with Gaddafi have been very cautious over the years, but it's hard to figure that the west hated him. He's allowed oil to be developed, he's apparently been cooperative in "da war on terra" and publically (at least) renounced programs to seek WMD. That's all very compliant from my perspective. There are no assurances that whomever replaces Gaddafy will maintain the same relationship with the west. Forgive me again if this is already out there of course, but it seems to me that the UN had a lot to do with getting this ball rolling here. Bad Ass Ki-moon is the instigator, I'm telling you.

Remember this old Saturday Night Live sketch about Ronnie Reagan, where he gives press conferences as a doddering forgetful fool and as soon as the press is ushered out of the room he gets all maniacal? I like to think of Ban that way.
