Black Mischief

Three days into the transatlantic Libyan adventure, Talleyrand finds himself even more perplexed by it.

The governments leading this intervention have yet to state a clear set of aims upon which they can agree; contradictory statements have even been made by officials from the same government, And now, after hundreds of bombs and missiles have been fired, there is -- remarkably -- no agreement on who will be in command of the operation in the coming days, weeks, and/or months.

It has taken the American Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over two years to launch her first serious diplomatic initiative. She might have taken just a bit longer to prepare.

Colonel Gaddafi, alas, isn’t the only actor in an opera buffa of his own making.
