... while the rest of the world is left with the image of a hysterical shrew sniggering at the announcement of Muammar el-Gaddafi’s lynching ... During this time, the Senate International Relations Committee was holding the nomination hearing of its outgoing president John Kerry to confirm him as successor to Mrs. Clinton. The meeting was nothing more than an exchange of niceties between people belonging to the same world .. Senator Kerry was careful not to unveil his intentions. He recounted his Vietnam experiences for the benefit of his friend John McCain and pledged to work closely with the Committee that he chaired for so long, if confirmed by the Senate in his new post. At the most, he emphasized that he intended to negotiate from a position of strength with Iran by way of continued sanctions, and that U.S. diplomacy would not be confined to international security, but would include development issues. But not a word on Syria and the personal relationship between the Kerry-Heinz and Assad couples.

It appears that Libya’s former leader Muammar Gaddafi may have been handed down his final verdict by NATO rebels, but it’s perhaps an even more bloody awful fate already suffered by a morally detached western civilization.
The man who liberated his country from the tyrannical monarchy of King Idris back in 1969… was tried and sentenced by bullet today. Gaddafi modeled himself after Omar Mukhtar, The Lion of the Desert, the only other man who has led a genuine, independent Libyan resistance, fighting against a brutal Italian colonization in 1927. Yet, our media tell us he’s just another dead tyrant.
Unable to conceal her philistine nature, pathetic US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took the opportunity to crack a predictably disingenuous joke. When hearing the news of Gaddafi’s death she cackled as she told reporters, “We came, we saw, he died!”
News clip of Hillary Clinton’s cackle over the death of Libya’s Gaddafi This has become the new narrative in the US and western Europe now, where foreign leaders and other non-state actors with brown skin are given lengthy trials through press briefings by suited politicians in places like Washington, London and Paris, echoed by the corporate media until an antagonist is born for public consumption. Following the White House’s comical staged hoax of SEAL Team 6′s gallant raid on long-dead Osama bin Laden, and with no evidence to show it actually happened other than President Obama’s TV speeches- we get the next public assassination. After all, Obama’s far-fetched tale of the bin-Laden mission somehow vindicated all those innocent lives ruined by US incarceration and outright torture of thousands of young men since the War on Terror officially began in 2001.
"... The only surprise was a totally unexpected reference to a quote by Henry Kissinger on the complexity of the modern world ....
"... Paraphrasing Emperor Julius Caesar following his victory over Pharnaces II ("Veni, Vedi, Vici", meaning "I came, I saw, I conquered."), US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, chortling before CBS cameras, reacted to Muammar Gaddafi’s death and the end of the war on Libya by declaring "We came, we saw, he died!"
|In the context of U.S. Army culture, the pun bears the distinct connotation that Muammar Gaddafi was personally the target. In fact, a misspelled version "Vini, Vidi, Vici" happens to be the motto for the US Army Sniper School in Fort Benning, Georgia.|
