Well, I might have guessed Iran first, before Libya, but that was before those uppity Egyptians got that nasty idea that they could just make the dickheads go away simply by withdrawing consent.
Thousands of people destroyed pointlessly by imperial warmongering may no big deal, but hey man, that shit just can't fly--we need to nip that in the bud now, before it happens again.
And so, to reaffirm people's faith in the political process, we're gonna go gang up on...the guy we put in office originally, were perfectly happy with as a dictator until just a few weeks ago, and who just might get toppled by the rabble if we don't come in like Team America and save the motherfuckin' day, yeah.
So, let's go kick the shit out of Libya and show 'em that only governments can topple other governments. Get everyone all whipped up before something serious happens!
