Italy and France agreed to carry out joint patrols off Tunisia's coast to block migrants headed for Europe. The European Commission called on France and Italy to "get over the dispute" and come together towards a "European solution."
No one can say it wasn't an eventful week for President Obama. My own opinion of the man dramatically swung in the course of just a couple of days. When he released his birth certificate in the face of Donald Trump's moronic harassing, I thought he looked weak, petty, and extremely politically vulnerable. But then, a couple days leader, he looked like a giant as he calmly and stoically described how he authorized the assassination of the world's most wanted man.
Two highly acclaimed journalists have been killed in Libya. These days, friends of the journalists talk about how they made sacrifices in their own lifes to bring the hardships of war into the public eye, and how that dedication created award-winning photographs that shaped the way people viewed the world. Today, I post this work firmly convinced that cartoons are also a powerful and honest way to make such heroes remain longer and deeper in our memory. Luckily, among us there are some very special kind of people who are able to risk their own lifes in order to denounce acts of injustice.
What with the wave of popular uprisings against authoritarian rulers sweeping across North Africa and the Middle East, it's nice to see that hasn't distracted Obama's focus from his all-important birth certificate situation; yessir, folks, he's totally on top of that issue.
"Attrition in Misrata as Libya heads for ‘stalemate’" or "battle for Libya" are some of the news headlines we can find these days in the media; not to mention "Libya death toll reaches 10,000". A libyan mosaic to demand justice wishing all these fights become a thing of the past, now!
