And how we then spent the next six months handling the brunt of the sorties, making sure Qa... Kha... Gadhafi's planes didn't fly, nor his helicopters, or his tanks or cannons or armored personnel carriers or guys with rifles?
Because I remember it happening pretty much that way, but MiniTru is telling me I'm wrong:
President Obama added a victory to his record on Monday as Libyan rebels moved closer to seizing control from Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi...Wait, what? A quick scan around the usual sources and you'd think that Barry was preparing to storm Qa... Kha... Gadhafi's compound single-handedly, with a knife in his teeth, and gas prices will recede like the oceans did at his election.
(Seriously: the local news had a reporter and camera crew out staring at the digital price sign at a local Speedway gas station in the pre-dawn darkness, waiting for the numbers to fall on the news from Tripoli, like a Roman augur taking the auspices from a flock of pigeons crapping on the Forum.)
