An Eye for an Eye

With revelations coming out that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi likely ordered the Bombing of Pan Am flight 103 it is no surprise that American families affected by the tragedy are calling this recent action, “Long Overdue.”

Setting the allied intervention aside for a moment, I believe it is somewhat ironic that the murderous reign of Gaddafi will ultimately come to an end at the hands of his own people.

As the days go by the military might of this dictator gets weaker and weaker, and rebel forces surge forward in their push to unseat their embattled leader. Allied air strikes have re-energized the opposition forces.

The losses keep piling up. E Pakistan News reported Sunday evening that Khamis Gaddafi,  Muammar Gaddafi’s son and commander of the feared Khamis Brigade, was killed in an allied air strike.

I don’t know where this is headed, but at the end of it I’d like to see this man standing in front of a judge and the Lockerbie families to answer for this murderous crime.

I don’t want us in another shooting war any more than the next man, but if a few Tomahawks can bring this criminal to justice, I think it’s a worthy investment.
