Polar bears are cute. This cute.
Anyone who reckons a polar bear isn't cute doesn't know what they're talking about.
So when someone kills a polar bear a little part of the world's magic dies.
Knut the famous polar bear died mysteriously in his enclosure at Berlin Zoo yesterday. At about the same time as NATO forces began bombing Libya.
Gaddafi warned again and again that if his country was attacked he would strike back, but we didn't listen. We all thought it was the bluster of an old man whose regime was about to topple. Little did we know that within hours our dear, beloved Knut would be dead, his life snuffed out in the name of politics, oil and greed.
Muammar Gaddafi, why did Knut have to die? Wasn't it enough for you to bomb your own people into oblivion? Wasn't watching their misery enough to get you off?
Why did the bear have to die too?
