It seems to be "show me the Muslim" or "show me the oil."
Blacks and Christians in Sudan and Rwanda get the near genocide treatment and the U.S. does not intervene. Nor did we hit Saddam real hard when he gassed many and more Kurds in Iraq.
Coptic Christians in Egypt were treated very harshly even before the military ousted Morsi, but did the U.S. intervene? No.
Kosovo intevention: Muslims involved.
Libya: oil and Muslims.
Syria: Muslims, and in a region region where instability could affaect oil prices. But Christians there --- who cares about them, right? Rand Paul is spot-on on this.
If you are a Christian and live in the Middle East (and in Syria right now) you seem to be out of luck...
What say you?
Even in the Balkans, when it was just the Serbs and Croats going at it, nobody cared, but once the Muslim Bosnians got into the action, then suddenly everybody cared about what was going on over there.
The same forces blackmailed/ extorted us into Obama and we were kissed to sleep as it went down.
He is the greatest fraud and threat to America EVER perpetrated on the American populace.
You might want to ask Bob Dole and John McCain about that.
Along with Bill Clinton, of course...
No interventions anywhere unless caused by an armed attack on United States territory.
The entirety of the Middle east is not worth the blood of one American private. Add Asia and Europe.
The peoples of the South African continent are a protected class?
Because Rwanda, Sudan and Kurds don’t threaten the oil supply out of the Middle East. Oddly enough, the Keystone pipeline does affect the price but not the supply. Will he consult congress on that.
You’ve written a well-reasoned, and thought-provoking vanity post.
And let’s not forget this and previous administrations’ complete silence on the unheard of horrors taking place in North Korea.
Or what is happening to Christians right now in Nigeria at the hands of Muslims.
There seems to be one hope for Christians in many parts of the world, that being Russia and Vladimir Putin.
Nobody cared enough to intervene in a more or less fair fight between Catholics and Orthodox.
Once largely defenseless Muslims were being slaughtered and images of concentration camps looking like Nazi concentration camps got to the US and the rest of the world Clinton cared enough to threaten the Croats into submission and bomb the Serbs. Turkey was not going to stand pat forever as their kinsmen were slaughtered.
Dead Arabs effect the price of Oil whether the corpses lay on oil fields or not.
Dead sub-Saharan black Africans do not whether Christian Muslim or animist.
Both criteria need to be met to intervene. It has to be the right thing to do to protect native populations and it has to be in our national self interest.
Lets not be so eager to see conspiracy theories in everything and in the process slander Ronald Reagan in the process. The gassed Kurds occurred during the Reagan administration. As for the Sudan, that conflict has being going on since the 60’s. Rwanda, we were involved, through our proxy Uganda. We gave the green light for the Tutsi rebels, who were members of the Ugandan Armed Forces, to overthrow the Hutu’s in power. When the Tutsi’s won and took revenge on the Hutus for their genocide, we did everything in our power to deflect any attempt to stop the massacre. The person in charge, Susan Rice. Rwanda was a proxy war between France and the US for influence in Central Africa. The Rwanda phase of the conflict was just the beginning as it escalated into the two Congo Wars leading to killing into the millions.
Why The Intervention In Kosovo?
Bill Clinton took bribes from the Muslims.
Why The Intervention In Libya?
TO help Islamism.
Because moooooslims are this administration’s favorite and they don’t give a damn about Christians.
I don’t recall any big push for intervention on behalf of white farmers being slaughtered or ethnically cleansed by Mugabe’s goons in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) either.
