A Bellicose Notion
America finds herself involved in yet another war with hostilities this time directed at Muammar Qaddafi and his forces in Libya. The last few leaders of the United States mistook the Founding Fathers strong admonition to "avoid foreign entanglements" as "enjoy foreign entanglements" and off adventuring they went. I suppose General George Patton (or George C. Scott in the Patton movie) was correct: "Americans love a good fight". At least whatever ill befalls Qaddafi, he will certainly have coming.
