Simple answers to unnecessary brain teasers (part 2)

This is great.

From Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Tom Marino, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee:

“The bottom line is I wish the president would have told us, talked to Congress about what is the plan. Is there a plan? Is the mission to take Gadhafi out?” Mr. Marino asked…. “Where does it stop?” he said. “Do we go into Africa next? I don’t want to sound callous or cold, but this could go on indefinitely around the world.”

A map is in order here:

See that blue blob? That’s Libya.

See that gray mass the blue blob is sitting on? That’s Africa.

I don’t want to sound callous or cold, congressman, but if “next” means “now,” the answer is yes.

That’s today’s simple answer to an unnecessary brain teaser.
