Washington, DC - On February 25, 2011, by Executive Order 13566, the President declared a national emergency pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701‑1706) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States constituted by the actions of Colonel Muammar Qadhafi, his government, and close associates, which took extreme measures against the people of Libya, including by using weapons of war, mercenaries, and wanton violence against unarmed civilians.  In addition, there was a serious risk that Libyan state assets would be misappropriated by Qadhafi, members of his government, members of his family, or his close associates if those assets were not protected.

As non-avian dinosaurs faded away, mammals began to fill the empty niches and extraordinary things happened, like when hippo-esque creatures returned to the sea and became what we now know as whales, dolphins and porpoises (cetaceans). Fast forward to the present day and we have mammals that can fly, live with very little water, run super-fast and eat just about anything.
