As of this writing, Libyan dictator Mommar Qadaffi has flown the coup. The rebels have taken Tripoli and this stage of the Libyan Civil War is over, thanks to the United States, mostly.
In the coming days, Chairman Obama's sycophants in the arrogant and lazy press are going to paint this as some sort of "great victory for Democracy". Chris "I'll Have Another Drink" Matthews (H/T Mark Levin) will get thrills up both his legs, rather than one. Rachel Maddcow will tell us tales about how our Dear Leader stood up to those pests Congress who kept insisting that the United States should concentrate on the two wars it's already involved in. I'm sure Keith Olbermann will be doing his happy dance for all eight of Current TV's viewers. Happy days have returned to the People's Republic of Progressivakia! Seig heil, Fuhrer Obama! All hail Progressivakian Imperialism! Hope and Che for all! 2+2=5!
Now, let me be among the first to ask this very, very important question: Exactly what did we win ?
Sure, the victims of Pan Am 103 get some justice. I'm all for that. Mommar Qadaffiduck was a state sponsor of terror and a vile piece of excrement that the world doesn't need in power. There's no question that the world is .0000000000001% safer with Qadaffiduck not in power. But the answer to the question above is:
Nothing. We have won nothing.
Despite this "victory", unemployment will still be at 9.2% for the foreseeable future. The housing market will still be dead. Gas prices will still be absurd. The stock market will still be as schizophrenic as Ron Paul's cyberstormtroopers. American troops will still risking their lives in Iraq and Trashcanistan. Uncle Sam will still be drowning in red ink, and oh yes, the American people will still be oppressed by the Big Mommy Regime in Washington DC.
In other words, nothing will change, other than fact that America will be footing the bill for all kinds of goodies for the Libyan people. The American tax payer will be paying for roads, bridges, schools, and kinds of "shovel-ready projects" in Libya that they will never use or benefit from, much like in Iraq and Trashcanistan. (While I support the wars in both places, I do not support the way they are being fought. Either fight to win or don't bother fighting. This winning "hearts and minds" crap is one of the big reasons The War on Terror is entering its 10th year. I don't blame this on the brave men and women who are serving in those hell holes, I blame the squeamish politicians who are directing the war. Yeah, I know, I'm a heartless "neocon imperialist". Blah, blah, blah. Yadda, yadda, yadda.) The American taxpayer will have his taxes raised so his wealth can be redistributed to the "worthy" Libyans.
We won. Yippee.
Yes!!! a new Government to burn American flags!
Obama regime establishes new Al Qaida regime.
Obama and his Islam are the great winners in his project.
Just like when Warsaw was “liberated” from the Nazis by the Soviets.
Why are we there again?
The current president didn’t even get a residual bump out of Bin Ladens death...I VERY MUCH DOUBT he will get anything whatsoever from this.
EVERY war we have fought or supported in the past twenty years has given rise to a new islamic state starting with Kosovo. We are raising up our worst enemies. Rather self-defeating, isn’t it?
The Hope and Che circus has gone worldwide....
Another country falls to the muslim brotherhood.
I dunno. Do you ?
Is he a caliph? or a Ghazi?
I believe he is a ghazi.... worst part, in OUR White House!
Yup, and a week from now they (AlQ/MB) will be crowing about it while the US state department will claim they were blindsided.
True, but the arrogant and lazy media will certainly try create a bump for their heart’s desire Obama.
Just like Egypt, and next Syria.
“Another country falls to the muslim brotherhood.”
This time, with America’s help.
We won. Yippee.
We facilitated putting Sharia in power in another Mideast country that was at least friendly to us and now is a mortal enemy!
I read an article that said that they recently found huge
deposits of gold in Libya. Also read some where that Qaddafi
was sitting on 14 tons of gold. I don’t guess that and the
timing off it all would have anything to do with it.
Finally! Qadaffi and his sons liberated! New Czars for Obama that will be experienced!
“We lost big time!!!”
That we did.
I’d give the Libyans the benefit of the doubt. Look at the live feed from Al Jazz.
If this were Cairo the jubilant mobs would be busy raping the reporterettes. That’s not happening in Green Square.
I’m with Pajamas Media’s Michael J. Totten. The Muslim Brotherhood did NOT plan out or anticipate the “Arab Spring”. They are NOT in charge of events.
According to him the Brotherhood has proven unable to get out in front. The Brotherhood poobah he was given to interview was a comically braindead, sclerotically ideological, ranting old dolt who couldn’t inspire a rally in a phone booth.
Now that Egyptians suddenly have a plethora of political parties and information sources to choose from, the Brotherhood has become obsolete overnight and the more ambitious, energetic leaders have already jumped ship to start their own outfits.
As for Libya, they have never been a factor over there.
No, not at all. This is all about “democracy” remember ?
All kidding aside, do you have a link to that article ? Sounds interesting.
Not this house.
I could say far harsher harsher things...
try this... as the global Obama agenda continues. its another sad day for America!
Why did you write that bullshit crap then!
I agree. This is a shameful day in American history, all kidding aside.
Methinks this is only the end of the beginning of the Libyan Civil War.
I was being sarcastic.
How much gold did Muamar take to Venezuela, and how did he get it there?
Just imagine the cash he has squirreled away after 40 years as dictator.
Taqiyya at work.
Democracy is a English word with its own CHRISTIAN culture, infrastructure and all codified into English law with the cornerstone being the Magna Carta. It is a experience that is over 200o ears old and represents everything that is antithetical to Islam.
Sure they can parrot the word, but they have no basis to understand it. It does not stop at one vote for one man!
IF they are having a DEMOCRACY moment, then they are all apostates!!! I welcome them!
American troops will be landing there shortly.
It's not as though we don't have a precedent. Israeli-Egyptian diplomacy is on a downward spiral, and the Egyptians are increasingly intolerant of religious minorities, like Christians. Arab Spring? More like Jihad Spring.
Only the Good Lord knows that. Something isn’t right here...
Tripoli, Cyrenia, and Fezzan are all likely to have different governing forces. The Libya we have is a forced creation of colonialism, taken over by stalinist dictatorship. Now the islamists will move in with a new deal.
Do not expect anything resembling a constitutional republic encouraging freedoms, economic growth, and participative democracy.
Thank you for my new wallpaper.
Awesome, awesome pic!
Getting rid of Kadaffy should have been the easy part. Obummer screwed that up. Now Libya is rudderless. Let's just see what type of totally dangerous Gov't emerges from that sewer. Something tells me it won't be too fun. Not only may we have not won, but the Western World may have lost big time. Things will change for the worse.
I think it’s going to be a three way dance of death and destruction and the American taxpayer will be footing the bill.
Regarding Libya, we haven’t yet met the new boss, but he’ll be the same as the old boss (except who probably won’t have those super-cool, almost Tarantinoesque, hot trained killer posse babes.)
It will be as ugly as an open sore.
Someone wake me up when it’s 2012.....
I’m sure he’ll come from the same sewer as Qadaffi Duck...
This will be the chance Hussein has been seeking to promote the califate. He can link Libya with Egypt, overpower Israel, and take Syria. Watch Saudi - the will take a dim view of the whole enchilada.
Hey, here’s a brand new government of questionable integrity and ephemeral composition to which we can send billions in aid as the US goes down the proverbial tubes. What’s not to like?
And soon the ‘Stans’, Jordan, Saudi Arabia et all.
Side note: Thank you Democrats and fellow travelers. You will go down in history. But it won’t be the history you envisioned. All the death and suffering is/will be on your heads.
