Or should that be Lebanonya?


No wonder they can’t find Gaddafi.

If you’re in Beirut you might want to head for the shelter right now just in case NATO pilots are getting their directions from CNN.

    I thought maybe he was hiding in Pock-ee-ston.

    Is it kismet ? Karma ? What goes around, comes around ?

    My oh my, how the mighty have fallen ! How things change in 20 short years !

    In Desert Storm 1, our military was relying on CNN for their real-time cit-reps; now CNN can`t find their butts with both hands tied behind them. Fascinating !

    Isn`t Tripoli somewhere near the "Panama Canal" ?

    It could be. It sounds Eriely familiar.

    There IS a Tripoli, Lebanon. Still, this is about like looking for Liberty Hall in Philadelphia, Mississippi! There's an intern there that needs some correction. Send him to Rome, NY to interview the Pope.

    Or to Athens, GA to get some pictures of the Parthenon.

    I`ve been through Lebanon gobs o` times. Coal mining country in East Tennessee. Lots of places for Quaddaphee to hide !

    I notice the map also fails to mention Israel, which is no doubt just an inadvertent omission… or else they're their maps from Iran.

    Well in their defense, Israel is tiny and not relevant to point out in this story. But neither was Lebanon!

    Speaking of which, that reminds me of this (hope it's all right to post links in the comments):

    It`s amazing, regarding your link (you did type it in using only your right index finger, right ?), all those muslim countries covering north Africa and much of the middle east, they are so threatened by little ol` Israel ! Kinda like the left having all the other networks in their pockets and still threatened by one lone network, FOX, which BTW, isn`t so right-leaning anymore !

    Note to CNN: Omaha Beach is NOT in Nebraska.
