The kind of victory Pyrrhus could appreciate.

Muammar Gaddafi could stay in Libya if he gives up power, France said on Wednesday, signalling a new effort to find a diplomatic solution to a five-month-old war that has failed to oust the resilient leader.

The United States said Gaddafi must quit, but whether he remained in Libya after that would be up to the Libyan people.

Couldn’t they at least suggest Elba?

Yet another great policy victory for our nation’s strategy of eventually fighting every possible nation. You better get ready Lichtenstein and Lesotho!
