So how’s the Libya going?

Our glorious air campaign against Mr. Gaddafi has morphed into….who knows what. But we’re in now, and we had better hope the rebels have what it takes to march on Tripoli. Everyone bellow Freedom. Speaking of those rebels….

In four towns captured by rebels in the Nafusa Mountains over the past month, rebel fighters and supporters have damaged property, burned some homes, looted from hospitals, homes, and shops, and beaten some individuals alleged to have supported government forces, Human Rights Watch said.

There’s no war like civil war. Not to worry expert, experienced Libya hand and Foreign Minister John Baird has it all under control:

Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird strides to the podium. His cotton suit is as befitting the heat of a Benghazi afternoon as his rebel lapel pin is of the occasion.

“I’m very pleased to be here and to lend our strong support to you and your fellow countrymen for your struggle in this revolution,” said Baird.

Win.
