As the Middle East was fast becoming a cauldron of jihadist terror that will change the region forever, our Fifth-Columnist-in-Chief reviewed some South American Gilbert and Sullivan army.
This is a leader at war:
This is a Manchurian Candidate at war: (pardon, than should have read: “This is a Manchurian Candidate at a kinetic military operation.”)
Meanwhile back on home soil, this waste of skin had the continued gall to blame President Bush, saying:
“This (attacks on Libya) is how the international community should work—more nations, not just the United States, bearing the responsibility and cost of upholding peace and security…”
Facts and history are difficult to master for a left-wing community organizer in a $2,000 suit. Bush had twice the coalition partners in Iraq than signed on for this naked war for European oil.
All Americas must find this reassuring… just the same feeling you get when you hand the new Chevy keys to your ditzy 16-year-old daughter and her fellow cheerleaders:
On NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Gates was asked, “Is Libya in our vital interest as a country?” He answered, “No, I don’t think it’s a vital interest for the U.S., but we clearly have interests there, and it’s a part of the region which is a vital interest for the U.S.”
But The Man with the Nuke Launch Codes:
“… when someone like Gadhafi threatens a bloodbath that could destabilize an entire region; and when the international community is prepared to come together to save many thousands of lives — then it’s in our national interest to act,” President Obama says, “And it’s our responsibility. This is one of those times.”
And just so you remember… this was going to take “days” not “weeks” to turn Libya over to…… rebels Al Qaeda.
Doesn’t this sound a bit familiar?
Let’s look back all the way back to two months ago:
Feb. 1 – (WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama says the passion and dignity demonstrated by the people of Egypt has been an inspiration.
He says young protesters will reach their destiny.
In brief remarks at the White House Tuesday evening, the president said, “We hear your voices.”
Feb. 7 — (CBS News) When O’Reilly asked Mr. Obama about the presence of the Muslim Brotherhood and whether the group is a threat, Mr. Obama said, “I think they’re one faction in Egypt. They don’t have majority support in Egypt. But they’re well organized. There are strains of their ideology that are anti-U.S. There’s no doubt about it.”
Now, Cairo… 22 hours ago:
“Kamal El Helbawy, a spokesman of the Muslim Brotherhood, said “The Muslim Brotherhood are interested in the government, in the law that protects human dignity, freedom, equal opportunities, that stops corruption, and in favour of development. . . We are not rallying actively for Sharia Law, but it the majority wants it, then why not?”
As the best organized and most extensive opposition movement in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood was expected to have an edge in the contest for influence. But what surprises many is its links to a military that vilified it. — NY Times
Sources have found that in Egypt:
- religion has emerged as a powerful political force; guess which religion.
- The Brotherhood is at the forefront, and closely allied with the military government.
- young, educated, secular activists who initially propelled the non-ideological revolution are no longer the driving political force… if they ever really were…. including that mysterious Goggle executive.
So just to recap…. Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, haunted by the Clinton Administration’s failure to send troops to Rwanda to stop the genocidal attacks on the Hutus talked Barack Hussein Obama into aiding Al Qaeda in the overthrow of Libya.
See, when U.S. interests are at stake, the left, the radical left and communists (natch) are all opposed, but when we can send our military into a nightmare swamp for “humanitarian reasons”, …. then by gawd keep those body bags a comin’.
