The First Casualty (Libya)

So Mad Dog Gadaffi is on the brink, in fact by the time I finish this short post he may well have been deposed. Few in Libya or elsewhere will regret his downfall, apparently for years he had to pay people to be his mates.

Still, with reports of a bloodbath in Tripoli being conspicuously absent from mainstream news services that old adage that truth is the first castualty of war holds good.

Having said that, how nice it was to see Barack Hussein Obama accepting the congratulations of supporters after personally leading the Libyan rebels advance on Tripoli, his loyal lieutenant Dave Shiny Face Cameron at his side throughout the whole campaign.
