    Not the 10 Libyans that are currently missing in the U.S. right now, you mean?

    If only Ted Rall could substantiate his cartoon’s innuendo.

    ^ Well… for someone’s homes, maybe… but certainly not U.S. homes.

    No one’s innuending anything. I’m sayin’:

    The article you cited, Mr. Rall, refers to “$25 million in surplus American goods to help protect civilians in rebel-held areas [emphasis mine]”.

    Your cartoon, however, is all about money.

    You are right. There was no innuendo. Inaccuracy, on the other hand, well, there, you succeeded, and it hurts me to state that, because I agree with your cartoons’ views more often than I disagree.

    Subprime wars in Afghanistan & Iraq are now “under water” & will have to be written off, but have we learned anything? Do we ever learn anything?

    ^^I’m just impressed that the cartoonist actually reads our comments.

    “The article you cited, Mr. Rall, refers to … goods”

    ‘Money’ is sacred bits of metal or paper, while the stuff that money buys is just ephemeral junk???

    The headline was ‘25 million DOLLARS.’

    First, it should be noted that NO American aid is in the form of global (or, for that matter, domestic) currency, it’s always in the form of vouchers that MUST be spent with ‘approved vendors’ so it’s ALWAYS a transfer from the taxpayer (or printing press) to friends of the current administration, and this time is no different. The approved vendors WILL get the $25 million.

    My own objection is that $25 million is round-off error. More gets/got squandered every time Obama/Bush, Jr.scratches/scratched his posterior.

    Cute cartoon, but not particularly relevant in its linking oil to aid. Whoever is in control will sell the oil on the world market, so it doesn’t really matter from that standpoint who is in power. Actually , anyone that really wants to assure the flow of oil will back Kaddafi (SP??). The Brits sold their soul to this guy for oil deals, so they don’t want to see him go.

    Food for thought…I though this was what the cartoon referred to…The newly and rapidly created central bank of the rebels…

    Moving Libya under the control of the IMF and World Bank?

    No black and white ….

    Bad people doing good things…good people doing bad things….good people supporting good people being manipulated by bad people …doing good things and bad things at the same time.

    Many of them were fooled by hucksters who otherwise would not have been able to get them to sign. So you put the onus on the buyers, not the sellers who have full control over it. Its a busted system.
