I feel like one of the Lone Gunmen. No not Lee Harvey Oswald but one of the guys from X-Files.

I don't feel like this is something I can or particularly want to celebrate. Partiality because I'm not entirely convinced of its factuality.

I've been very bad at following the development of this war or Libya. I was pretty young when everything started and I do not trust or really believe news sources, specifically TV news sources. They're a cog in the political and economic system. They are biased and flawed with an agenda to sell. And by the time I wanted to have a better grasp on the situation a few years had passed and there was so much shit it didn't seem worth it to get mired down in all the filth, lies and smoke screens.

The violent end of one man... that's not victory.

The Obama administration needed to have a solid win under their belts in the recent memory of the voting public's minds, and specifically one that appeals to every moderate conservative who didn't vote for him the first time.

But I would celebrate the war being actually over. I would celebrate our troupes finally coming home to stay. I would celebrate the end of this occupation-- because that is what it is.
