The UN, Libya, and Zombie Qaddafi

Some lighthearted musings on the significance of NATO’s withdrawal schedule from Libya:

The UN Security Council voted unanimously today to end the authorization for humanitarian intervention in Libya at 11:59pm on October 31st. The UN did not comment on whether the ominous hour of NATO’s withdrawal—midnight on All Hallow’s Eve—is a sign of dire events to come. Let’s just all remember who was responsible when the Hellgate opens in Tripoli next weekend, and no-one has any air support to bomb the demon hordes that spew forth from its fiery maw.

This decision comes despite a request from Libya’s National Transitional Council to maintain military presence in the country until the new government can determine their security needs. The NTC, similarly, did not comment on whether those security needs included the possibility that Colonel Muammar Qaddafi might rise from his shallow grave as a Revenant Lich King, commanding an army of wights, ghouls, and inexpensive Sudanese mercenaries.
