Ghadaffi Still Missing

The lamestream media told you:

Rebels liberated Tripoli, the Arab Spring is advancing, four decades of dictatorship over, Ghadaffi location unknown...

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Aren't those AK-47s the Libyan rebels are waving all around? Where did they get those? Aren't those the guns the Mexican cartels use? Aren't those the guns the BATFE was smuggling into Mexico? Yes, yes, yes and yes.

How did the citizens, called rebels in the "news" media, instead of freedom fighters or some other less rebellious moniker, get so many AK-47s under one of the most brutal regimes known? Could Mexican cartels have the same suppliers? Shouldn't at least one reporter ask? And how come there are so few AR-15s floating around? Isn't it the better gun? Why do the former communist-bloc countries get all the business and American manufacturers don't?

In other news, some observers question whether "Arab Spring" is a proper name, instead of Arab Uprising, or Overthrow of Western-Supported Dictators, or Groundwork for a Global Caliphate. Some observers wondered who these constantly mentioned observers are. The "news" media could not be reached for comment. Who decided that Ghadaffi translated from Arabic has a silent "h" and two "f"s ?
