"It is unthinkable that someone who has tried to massacre his own people can play a part in their future government," said the article, titled "Libya's Pathway to Peace," by U.S. President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

So, Hu Jintao, where were you on the night of June 3rd, 1989?
Mugabe's stacked up a few bodies in his time, too. Why aren't Obama and Sarkozy rescuing the poor long-suffering Zimbabweans? For that matter, nobody's deploying troops to save Darfur. Are you guys racist or something?
How do these guys decide which "betrayals" are "unconscionable" and which are, you know, just business as usual? Throw darts? Is there a Magic 8-Ball in the Oval Office, official dice at 10 Downing Street, and a deck of tarot cards in the Élysée Palace?
