NATO Attack Destroys Much of Qaddafi Compound

By JOHN F. BURNS

TRIPOLI, Libya - In a sudden, sharp escalation of NATO's air campaign over Libya, warplanes dropped more than 60 bombs on targets in Tripoli on Tuesday, obliterating large areas of Colonel Muammar el-Qaddafi's Bab al-Aziziya command compound.

Obama's basic foreign affairs philosophy appears to be that it's stupid to invade some third world country when you can score just as many political points by shooting or exploding one guy (along with various bystanders, of course).
