Remembe last year, when I was wondering whether the Supermoon would be used for an act of war?  That turned out to be the night that NATO went into Libya.

If they hadn't,  Ghadafi would've most likely retaken Tobruk that night.

I can't tell you how I know, but I was informed that the NATO missiles were on their way round ten minutes before the rest of the world heard it.  Sitting on my couch, with the laptop on its arm, watching the live al Jazeerah feed, I witnessed what I'd read as a Facebook message on my comp become reality on a TV screen.

Watching the turn of events since the US ambassador was killed (and what' the bet with rockets given to overthrow The C olonel, and given that such a flimisy match has ignited such a flame, I've begun to become suspicious again.
