Dancing Dictators

All of the usual suspects of the Americas--Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, Daniel Ortega--are expressing solidarity with their old friend Gaddafi as he fights to the bitter end in Libya and trying to blame America for the chaos in Libya. Like China, they are worried that the protests throughout the Muslim world will ignite fires elsewhere and are subsequently moving to fortify their repressive regimes.

Meanwhile, nuclear-seeking tyrant Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has condemned Gaddafi for oppressing and murdering his own people and expressed solidarity with the people of Libya in their quest for liberty. Apparently he has forgotten about when he oversaw the crackdown on and deaths of his own citizens two years ago, and his decision yesterday to start confiscating television satellite dishes around Iran in order to further his control on information. Or maybe he is just jealous that Gaddafi's Libya gets to join such prestigious nations as China, Cuba, and Saudi Arabia on the United Nations Human Rights Council while Iran is forced to keep its anti-Semitic, anti-American rhetoric to the General Assembly.

In your first sentence, you inadvertently left out the bus driver in the White House, Democrats, Liberals, Progessives and Hollywood.

I agree with your point, please share with us more good articles.
