"As John Cleese once said, it's not the despair, it's the hope...  Look, we're not discussing the "impotence of the masses" or any such thing. We're discussing the reality in Libya *today*.   If you want someone to cheer you up, perhaps you should take Louis' advice and read Gilbert Achcar.  He seems to think the revolution has only just begun."

Tomb . . . I guess the name is apropos. Geez, I hate it when a pretend Marxist-wannabe economist-foolin'-everyone-he-is-a-revolutionary tries to tell me to be "realistic". Sounds like my mother-alternatively-Obama-Liberal Party-pragmatist-'cuz bein' in London-I-know-what-is-the-reality-in-Libya-*today*-makes-me-superior-'cuz-I-use-alot-of-words-to-justify-my-not-actually-acting-on-getting-NATO-Out Now-kinda guy to me.

Again, where are all those actions that you were pontificating should happen to Stop NATO when Qadhaffi was in power? You have a "voice", Tomb (admittedly and unfortunately much bigger than mine). Why don't you use it to be a bit less realistic?

John Cleese is a funny guy and I am sure you think these concerns are a joke. I assure you they are not. The more you act as if you have a better take on this issue from your perch, the more you sound like an idiot. I've never cared whether my elders/parents were disappointed in me, why in this ridiculous Hell in which we live would you think I would care how disappointed You are? Feed your ego with someone else.
