You Say You Want a Revolution? Well, You Know........

Revolutions are tricky things. On one hand, they can give you places like the United States, and on the other hand, they can give you states like Cuba and Iran. The latter two were hailed by liberals in this country as positive developments – the deposing of evil dictators, and all. (Castro even appeared on the Ed Sullivan show where he was wished “good luck” by Ed, himself.)

Now, the left is positively agog over the events in Libya. Color me skeptical.

Nature abhors a vacuum. On the other hand, radical groups absolutely adore them and, in recent times, have used them to advance their cause farther than they could have ever hoped, otherwise. I sincerely hope I'm wrong, but libya's smelling like another Iran.

You know, there are those who "never let a good crisis go to waste".
