Indiana deputy attorney general suggests using "live ammunition" against protesters

'Jeff Cox, deputy attorney general for the state of Indiana, suggested via Twitter that riot police "use live ammunition" against demonstrators outside Wisconsin's capitol building on Saturday night, reports "Mother Jones." '

He must be a fan of the the Saudi king or the Libyan dictator. How embarrassing!

Many of the armed men who remain appear to be mercenaries, but reports vary on their origins. According to TIME, "Qatar-based al-Jazeera detailed pamphlets circulated to mercenary recruits from Guinea and Nigeria, offering them $2,000 per day to crack down on the Libyan uprising."

The Daily Mail, meanwhile, reports that Qaddafi "is employing Russian and Eastern European ‘white mercenaries’ at £18,000 [$29,000] a head to brutally crush protests in his desperate attempt to cling to power."

Where the fuck is Obama? He should have declared a no-fly zone. He could send in special forces to deal with these mercenaries. Good grief man. What's it gonna take to move him off his ass?

But a no-fly zone wouldn't prevent mercenaries from shooting people. It was the same problem after the 1991 uprising in Iraq.

It would show the Libyan people that the world isn't going to stand back and watch yet another genocide. France and Italy are a lot closer, but aren't putting any actions behind those condemnations either. France was quick to send in troops when the shit hit the fan in Ivory Coast. I've got to tell you, I'm ashamed of what little the West has done so far.
