    Qaddafi Compound Hit by U.K. Missiles as Coalition Says Leaderís Forces in Disarray

    I figure that any place having anything to do with command and control is a legitimate target. What's the bid deal?

    Ir's pretty clear Gaddafi was not the target, The coward is probably dressed as a woman living in the shadows in some suburb of Tripoli, with lots of woman and children around.

    British submarines fired two missiles at Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafiís compound in downtown Tripoli Sunday, a senior coalition official confirmed to Fox News, as part of a weekend of punishing attacks aimed at protecting the Libyan people.

    The British Ministry of Defense confirmed that Qaddafi was not the target, but that the compound was hit because of its military significance. A Pentagon official had previously said Sunday that the coalition ďwill not be going after Qaddafi.Ē

    Well if you say all it has to do is have military significance, that's ANYTHING. If we're not trying to oust Ghadaffi we are wasting our time. Obummer said WE weren't targeting him, but he spoke nothing of of Britain or France. Either we take this man out and stop this nonsense or we keep playing whack a mole with his army.

    I was shocked when I heard this on the radio this morning. I thought this was a no-fly-zone mission. What have we gotten into?

    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    You're right. I did. I wanted to see a no-fly zone -- not bombing Daffy's compound. To me, that's a very different thing.

    I think it's pretty naive for anyone who supported a no-fly zone to not be able to foresee that it would immediately escalate to something more.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    I agree. And it is a concern. We really don't need a another war. While this in no way compares to Iraq, there is good reason to be concerned.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    No one knows what the hell we're doing in Libya, which is a good reason not to be there.

    Sometimes I don't know what in the hell I'm doing here at work, so I guess I should just leave.
