Alright, here we go again

Let’s concentrate efforts here at home for a change

By John Pawlak

The news report spilled out like a cow chip throwing contest in my living room.  
“A coalition of American and European forces launched a military campaign Saturday to drive Moammar Gadhafi from power, bombing Libyan targets by air and sea in the first phase of the largest international military effort since the Iraq war.”
Coalition.  These days, that’s just another word for “Fight Club of the Week.”  
How many countries can you get together and have them all act like idiots at the same time?   Just to make sure, I looked it up to double check the meaning.  “A group of male lions that drives off and replaces other male lions in order to mate with the females and protect the resulting offspring.”
Well, that’s close, but it must be the other definition.  “An alliance or joining of forces to address a common goal.”  Yeah, like Bush’s alliance with Albania, Mongolia, Slovakia, and the rest of the cast of Monty Python’s Holy Grail.
