Qaddafi Welcome to Live in Uganda, Spokesman Says

KAMPALA, Uganda -- The spokesman for Uganda's president says that Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi is welcome to live in Uganda.
The offer by Uganda appears to be the first country to say it would accept the Libyan leader.

Tamale Mirundi, the press secretary for Present Yoweri Museveni (http://www.foxnews.com/topics/politics/president-yoweri-museveni.htm#r_src=ramp), told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the country's policy is to grant asylum seekers exile in the country.

Mirundi said that policy is in place in part because many Ugandans fled during the rule of longtime Ugandan dictator Idi Amin.

Museveni, who won re-election in February, has been in power for 25 years in Uganda.

Time to see if the rat jumps the ship.

Our "kinetic military action" has virtually guaranteed that he will survive. He knows our level of commitment is low, that public opinion on the operation is negative, and that dithering and waffling are the trademarks of the president's foreign policy.

It encourages him and his supporters to dig in deeper, hold out longer, fight harder - because he knows that to relieve the international pressure all he has to do is turn this into a political liability for Obama. If we'd thrown complete support behind the rebels from the start for example, we probably could have deposed him quickly. But we arent committed to seeing a positive outcome, only to "action". There are no winning scenarios there.

Winning is antidemocratic.

I know, MrsDirekshun told me that our foreign policy should not be based on winning or achieving positives for America but rather for making us as popular in the international press as possible. (something like that)

I've heard there is a more suitable location that would be happy to host him and also has an intense desert like heat that he would be adapted to enjoy.

Hell.
