Commies, Limbaugh hooking up; O'Keefe WNYC rant

The president of Bolivia and Russian Liberal Party leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky are calling for the repeal of President Obama's Nobel Peace Prize. The Forbes article is cited in this Huff post:

"These developments in Libya are another outrageous act of aggression by NATO forces and, in particular, the United States," Zhirinovksy's statement, which appeared in Russian, is quoted by Forbes as saying. He went on to call the strikes part of a "colonial policy" with the goal to control Libyan oil. Bolivian President Evo Morales echoed those sentiments. "How is it possible that a Nobel Peace Prize winner leads a gang to attack and invade? This is not a defense of human rights or self-determination," Morales, who is among of number of left-leaning Latin American leaders who have denounced the Libya attacks, is quoted by Digital Journal as saying. "Obama gives speeches trashing his own country and for that gets a prize, which is now worth as much as whatever prizes they are putting in Cracker Jacks these days," Rush Limbaugh told Newsweek. "The Nobel gang just suicide-bombed themselves."
Far more immediacy to commit US firepower in Libya than Iraq, innit? Seems to me that had the first Bush marched on Baghdad in '91 with UN support far less bloodshed would have resulted. Standing up to bullies is liberally compassionate, too.
