The Cappuccino Machines Are Next


In a brilliant ploy designed to disrupt command and control capabilities of Qaddafi loyalist forces, NATO backed Libyan rebels have targeted the vital small office appliance networks serving the remnants of the Libyan Army.

As Libya's rebels fought their way into the capital city, Tripoli, for the first time since the uprising began six months ago, state TV broadcast what seemed to be an audio message from their dictator, Muammar Qaddafi.

What was intended to be a message of strength and defiance instead came across as bizarre and slightly desperate, according to the many who listened in.

"You destroy our air conditioners," Qaddafi is reported as saying, according to CNN's Matthew Chance.

During the message, Qaddafi read the date and time to prove that he was alive and well, but the fact that it was an audio recording made on a static line did nothing to quell the many rumors that he had already fled the country.

Electric pencil sharpeners, small refrigerators and cash registers were the first to go in a desperate bid to wrest control of this small African nation from it's mad despot. It is feared that the nation's convenience store economy may be set back for decades after this hellish development.

Nickie - I shall never forgive them for what they did to 8-track tape players.

Looks like Libyas rebels are now the victors, with our help.
They deserve our congratulations and continued assistance but let's see what they do with their victory.
Establishing the first Arab liberal democracy would be a pleasant surprise but many naysayers would predict a fall into lawless civil war followed by a taliban like dictatorhip. Wait and see.
