Who'd have guessed the foreign affairs positions tabled by the The Forgotten Rebels (more HERE) 25 years ago, would become the doctrine adopted by N.A.T.O., following the United Nations Resolution 1973 that authorized member states to take collective military action against now-deposed (and departed) Libyan dictator Col. Moammar Muhammad al-Gadhafi:
"All good Americans wanna fight
Bomb Khadaffi now
we could do it overnight
All good soldiers wanna fight
for the sake of human rights"
By posting this song, I mean no disrespect for the triumphant people of Libya, who are charged with monumental task of building a civil society from ruins, or even for the UN's sanctioning of N.A.T.O.'s military actions, which history may well vindicate. Rather, I just wanted to point out that all of the words used to describe The Forgotten Rebels over the years, this might be the only time a fitting adjective would be 'prescient'.
A. Bomb Khadaffi Now
B. Surfin' On Heroin
