Figuring out professor Obama's war

Charles Krauthammer

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is proud of how he put together the Libyan operation. A model of international cooperation. All the necessary paperwork. Arab League backing. A Security Council resolution. (Everything but a resolution from the Congress of the United States, a minor inconvenience for a citizen of the world.) It's war as designed by an Ivy League professor.

True, it took three weeks to put this together, during which time Moammar Gadhafi went from besieged, delusional (remember those youthful protesters on "hallucinogenic pills") thug losing support by the hour to resurgent tyrant who marshaled his forces, marched them to the gates of Benghazi and had the U.S. director of national intelligence predicting that "the regime will prevail."

But what is military initiative and opportunity compared with paper?

"This confusion is purely the result of Obama's decision to get America into the war and then immediately relinquish American command. Never modest about himself, Obama is supremely modest about his country. America should be merely "one of the partners among many," he said last week."

Not a doubt, the two gates to Europe are Turkey and all along north Africa. What i think is more significant is...Obamas drive to consolidate Islam, at Americas expense.

... from a previous post

The anti American has summoned and started the assembly of the greatest force against America.

He has taken America into Jihad... and beyond.

The ME? ... consolidating it for his brethren.

His first speech in Cairo... His speech in Indonesia included references against the Jews.

He has more than shown himself to be on side with muslims. Heck! He shares their same mantra....death to America.

Lose the ME? I don’t thinkso....consolidate it in the name of Allah.

For Obama? Its the ..current policy from the white house.....the marginalization and destruction of America.

Obama , culturally never was an American as he carries many chips on his shoulder and as we see from his old culture at many levels. He feels for his Kenyan identity, he feels for his muslim identity developed during adolescence in Indonesia, and he feels his angst against white and America....DeSouza went to great lengths to detail this in his book.

Its all about death to America....death to the great satan!
from a previous posting, see second last paragraph...

His associations with the MB? His endorsement of the coup... These are the same guys who are shooting at our troops.

His drive against America is demonstrated in his unfettered support of the OIC driven “UN”.

All his acts are supportive of Islam.

“One of the prettiest sounds on earth” is the Muslim call to prayer at sunset.
Barack Hussein Obama as quoted by Nicholas D. Kristof in the New York Times - March 6, 2007

• The FIRST thing Obama did as a newly elected Illinois State Senator was to attempt to declare a Muslim holiday. Obama sponsored Bill SR0110 in the 90th General Assembly to declare November 1, 1997 to be Islamic Community Center Day. It did not pass.

• His biological father was a Muslim.

• Because his biological father was a Muslim the Islam world thinks he is a Muslim.

• His stepfather was a Muslim.

• As a child Barry was enrolled in school as a Muslim in Jakarta Indonesia. An Indonesian Madrasa.
• Barack Hussein Obama’s first and middle names are Arabic Muslim names.
Barack was the name for Mohammad’s horse. Husein, enough said.

• Obama recited the opening lines of the Muslim call to prayer, which includes a vow of fidelity to Islam, in flawless Arabic on a radio program. - Nikolos Kristoff, NYTs, 3-06-07 (***this one is a gottcha moment***)

• On that same program he said he thinks the call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on earth.”

• Obama belonged to Rev. Wright’s (a former Muslim) church for twenty years. Many congregants are Muslims.

• Obama’s said that the U.S. is “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”

• Obama holds Muslim celebrations in the WH but canceled the National Day of Prayer.

• President Obama’s religious adviser, Eboo Patel, once deemed the United States “the ideal place for the renewal of Islam.”

• Obama does not give gifts on Christmas.

• Obama doesn’t celebrate his birthday.

• Obama falsely attributes Muslim participation in the founding of America.

• Obama required that the cross be covered when he gave a speech at Notre Dame.

• Christian symbol covered up during Obama’s Georgetown speech

• Obama’s first major speech in office was a “Muslim outreach” speech in Cairo Egypt.

• “The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim,” said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV.

• Obama gave strong support to the Cordoba House community center and mosque to be built at the Ground Zero site of Sep. 11, 2001 at a dinner celebrating the day’s end of the first day of Ramadan at the WH.

• Obama tasked NASA with a mission of “Muslim outreach.”

• Obama referred to his faith as “my Muslim faith” gaffe in an interview with George Stephanopolous.

• Pushes Islamic freedom of religion but not Jewish or Christian freedoms. Several weeks ago he told Israel NOT to build settlements in East Jerusalem. But OK to build that Mosque at Ground Zero.

All this brings on a interesting question... how can America have any struggle against Islam, or protect herself with the most powerful muslim in the world sitting in the White House?

Be wary, wary aware ....and wary, wary afraid...get prepared for more creeping sharia...more than what is coming out of the White House today

Arming the Enemy in Libya

Posted By Arnold Ahlert On March 28, 2011 @ 12:55 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage

The military mission America is helping to prosecute in Libya against Gaddafi has placed us into some questionable circles – to say the least. Libyan rebel leader Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, in a recent interview with the Italian newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore, admitted that some of his rebel fighters, ”around 25 men from the Derna area in eastern Libya, had been recruited by him to fight coalition troops in Iraq. Al-Hasidi also admitted that he himself had fought against America’s “foreign invasion” in Afghanistan. Thus, it appears that America’ degradation of Gaddafi’s fighting forces, claims of “humanitarianism” notwithstanding, is aiding our Islamist enemies.

Please, please...

Dimbulb Obama was NEVER a professor.

HE was a lecturer - ONLY.

For a very long time.

In other words, the university came to the same conclusions about his (lack of) intellect that we all have.

IMHO, I agree Obama is one of, if not the least American President we have ever allowed in office.

I suspect, though, that even Obama isn’t seeing the large picture. I suspect that the powers that be, in part, all only see part of the picture at any one time, and ignore how so many are being played for other agendas.

Yes, yes, yes!!!! This guy is uncommonly stupid, a pliable simpleton. Notice how much effort the media puts into maintaining the illusion of intelligence? If we have to be continually told then theres a BIG problem.

This is how a community organizer wages war. The community organizer is not a leader. He just gets people together to encourage them to take the lead in pursuit of an objective. The model does not work so well in war. Less Saul Alinsky and more Sun Tzu would make this campaign much more effective.

That may have been statement of the obvious but one that I had not occurred to me. Its a good point and it explains much.

It may not have been the best way to do things but I rather enjoyed watching the rest of the world beg for the American leadership which almost all of them despise.

I am sure it wasn't Obama’s plan but I doubt we will hear many more complaints from our allies about America's leadership.
