TRIPOLI, LIBYA - With NATO in command, American F-16 fighters have bombed Libya three times in the last ten days but are unsure exactly why. According to NATO spokesmen Peers Maggette, "American jets are operating with French and British jets in a choreographed affair of bombs. It is imperative that we ruffle the sand so no one will suspect we lack power to intervene in a battle between a brutal dictator and some other fellows." Citing the humanitarian nature of the mission, Maggette was unable to explain why NATO is bombing Libya but not Sudan, Congo, or Syria. "It is gauche to clutter foreign policy with consistency or reason. This has nothing to do with European oil and everything to do with something else."
