U.S. takes the back seat in Libya

March 20, 2011

Well what do you know! The United States of America is a team player in the battle against Moammar Gadhafi. Not the owner, the coach or even the quarterback; just a linebacker.

What a great moment for the world to see the "united" nations work for peace and human freedom. And the hopeful idea that the United States becomes a deputy and not the sheriff.

The message to the young people of the world must be very inspiring. Mr. Gadhafi and all the old thugs are on the way out. And the kids of the world did it. Now let us old timers step back and give them room. It just started by Uncle Sam letting the rest of the world family participate in the peace game. Let us hope that Uncle Sam can resist the urge to take over.
