US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton apparently thinks the violent death of Muammar Gadhafi is funny. Who laughs and jokes when they hear someone - anyone - has been killed?
"We came, we saw, he died." And that from our illustrious Secretary of State? Make no mistake: The world is better off without a ruthless dictator like Gadhafi.
But compare this with the capture and subsequent trial of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. Saddam was convicted and executed. By contrast, Gadhafi was murdered in cold blood by a roving band of undisciplined, screaming thugs with AKs and pistols.
All indications are that post-Gadhafi Libya will be run by the Muslim Brotherhood or worse. Those running the US government today are just not serious people of substance.
