Given the information that has been coming out Benghazi, it appears that we as Feeepers, have a complete disagreement with how the Obama Administration sees things and how they are selling their decisions to the public.
We value American life above all. Maybe, we identify things in binary terms. In the case of Libya, we see enemies. We never cared about peace there. We never cared about democracy there. Our anchoring principles are simple. 1.) A people needs to spill their own blood to secure their own freedom. 2.) A people needs to have their own notion and method, such as a republican form of government, to ensure their freedom.
Libyans, since they are Muslims, do not have the same notions of freedom as Americas. They do not recognize the means to achieve their freedom.
Libyans did not fight the terrorists that took over Benghazi. They either were not wiling to shed their own blood for freedom, or they bought into the future offered to them by terrorists. Many were terrorists from the beginning.
That is the landscape of Libya, but we had Americans in harms way. The Obama Administration did nothing to save them. This situation could have been avoided by not having Americans in Libya. But since Americans were in Libya, the Obama Administration should have known the landscape and responded to the attack on 9/11 appropriately.
The mistake of supporting revolution in Libya was compounded by having Americans in harms way in Libya. Having Americans in Libya under a terrorist attack is a mistake compounded by no response. The Obama Administration is incorrect in its foreign policy on multiple levels and it has cost American lives.
On 9/11, the Obama Administration had the information to correct their mistakes. American lives were in danger and America had the means to save those lives. There was an AC-130 that could have repelled the attack. The Obama Administration could have started by protecting our assets, and destroying the entire city around the assets (with additional attacks beyond the AC-130) so that there would have only been two things left standing; our consulate and the annex.
Maybe then, Muslins across the world, would understand the consequences of harboring terrorists instead of killing terrorists. Yes, we should blame the common man in Benghazi, despite his ignorance, for not turning away the terrorists when they took root in Benghazi. His ignorance is due to being a Muslim. We should not care about his family. We should not care about his children or babies. As things have been going, they were future terrorists in the making.
The Obama Administration has been wrong multiple times. First for fomenting the Arab Spring. Second, for not pulling Americans our of Libya as our British allies did. And lastly, for not defeating a people who allowed terrorists to attack Americans. The consequences of the Obama Administration's actions and inactions gives new life to Islam and terrorists around the world.
Why does Obama care about Libya? If he wanted to get rid of bad guys, he could have started off the coast of Florida and went after Castro. There’s money involved in this. Obama and Hillary are a couple of Democrat grifters.
favors Muslim lives over American lives
I completely believe this to be the truth.
