While the United States staggers under $14 trillion in debt, 15 million unemployed Americans, 43 million subsisting on food stamps and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—Nobel Peace Prize laureate Barack Obama dove into a third war with Libya over the weekend.
Of all the $100 billion worth of drugs crossing our unguarded borders with Mexico, which new exotic blend made its way into the White House? When did common sense and reasoned thought devolve into “Muslim violence” in Africa and the Middle East?
Thomas Jefferson said that America should never enter into foreign entanglements for the simple reason that such involvements could come to no good end.
“With his $1.6 million peace prize in his pocket, President Barack Hussein Obama launched an aggressive onslaught of U.S. cruise warfare missiles into a sovereign nation, Libya, who has an internationally recognized leader in Moammar Qaddafi- a tyrannical leader to be sure, but a leader none-the-less,” said freelance journalist Kimberly Dvorak. “Now America’s young and globalist president has taken the helm for America’s third Muslim country war. As such, Obama has further solidified his place, “in a war of his choosing” by involving America in another blurry-eyed Middle-East quagmire.”
The Arab League complained, “U.S. tomahawk missile airstrikes are responsible for killing innocent Libyan citizens.”
Amr Moussa, spokesperson for the Arab League, claims military operations have gone beyond what the Arab League backed; “What is happening in Libya differs from the aim of imposing a no-fly zone. What we want is civilians’ protected not the shelling of more civilians.”
What are we doing to ourselves and the rest of the world with three U.S. led wars? What do we hope to accomplish? How many more people will we kill? When will it stop? How can we justify wars that continue killing more people?
“Perhaps it has something to do with the ‘King of Tripoli,’ Qaddafi, who poked the eye of American families who lost loved ones in Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie Scotland,” said Dvorak. “ On December 21, 1988, flight 103 was destroyed in-flight by a bomb that was planted on the aircraft by a Qaddafi intelligence operative. The terrorist-engineered airplane crash killed 270 passengers, including 189 American citizens.”
The U.S. suffered enormous loss of life in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. All of those wars proved deadly, useless and without merit of any kind. The only result: millions of deaths with no resolution. Realistically, 17 of the 19---9/11 perpetrators came from Saudi Arabia. Why didn’t we bomb them with “shock and awe”?
“This is an absurd situation; there is absolutely nothing of interest to the United States in Libya,” said former head of the CIA’s Osama bin Laden unit Michael Scheuer. “If all the Libyans killed each other for the next week, what difference does it makes to life in the United States.”
A CIA spokesman said; “Air power never wins anything … air power will not resolve the question and we will ultimately be faced with another incursion of U.S. forces on the ground. It is an extraordinarily irresponsible thing for the president to do.”
Louis Farrakhan for the first time in his life asked a reasonable question, “Why don't you organize a group of respected Americans and ask for a meeting with Qaddafi, you can't order him to step down and get out, who the hell do you think you are?”
Muslim Brotherhood said, “We are opposed (to) the military intervention because the real intention of the United States and its European allies was to get into position to benefit from Libya’s oil supplies. The countries aligned against Libya are there not for humanitarian reasons but to further their own interests.”
Obama fails to look at history, much like his predecessor George W. Bush. Both men failed their world history exams in high school. However, countless Americans and other world citizens pay with their lives. Meddling in other countries’ business will prove the undoing of the United States of America. Nothing good can come of it.
