The other day I was at my father’s watching the news. As images of the war in Libya flashed across the screen my dad had a revelation. He figured if he had Muammar Gaddafi chained up in his barn for a few days he could teach him a thing or two…
As crazy as that sounds, (although I liked the sound of it) he wasn’t that far off. Imagine if you had a pasture full of horses and one of them began biting, kicking and attacking the rest of them. You’d want to do something about it as soon as possible.
Is Gaddafi really so different? Killing his own people? If you ask me, chaining him up in the barn isn’t nearly good enough, something needs to be done with this tyrant and quickly. Especially now that he seems to be gaining the upper hand. If the revolt is crushed, there’s little hope other nations will be able to break free of communism and dictatorships.
I’m hoping the United Nations does the right thing here and steps in. Killing your own people is a crime and he needs to pay for it. It’s time to put Gaddafi in prison, or in the barn.
