Graham: Without victory in Libya, NATO's finished (RINOs claim oil prices to increase without wars)
The Hill, Washington DC ^ | 2011-06-23 | Josiah Ryan

Posted on 06/23/2011 7:11:52 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on Thursday the survival of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's regime could spell the end of NATO.

“Logically you can exact that if he [Gadhafi] outlasts NATO, the Arab spring is over,” said Graham. "…He will take it out on his people, I think it will affect the price of oil and would be the end of NATO because NATO taking on Gadhafi and losing -- its going to be very hard for that organization to go off to another war and be taken seriously.”

Speaking on the Senate floor, Graham and McCain bemoaned President Obama’s plan, announced on Wednesday, to begin a withdrawal of surge forces from Afghanistan, and urged their colleagues in the House to vote down legislation proposed by Rep. Tom Rooney (R-Fla.) that would prohibit the use of any Department of Defense funds from being used to fund military operations in Libya.

“the Arab spring is over”

So what’s the bad news? “Arab spring” = islamists.

Also, since swearing is banned on FR, why is swearing with acronyms OK?

NATO hasn’t been a serious organization since Reagan left office, Lindsey. It’s time to put it out of it’s misery.

Without NATO, the USSR and their Warsaw Pact allies might invade West Germany!

Not to mention the Turks.

And Mongols.

The news media made a big point of saying, after Bush 41 lost in 1992, that Bush is gone but Saddam Hussein goes on. Will they say the same thing if Qaddafi outlasts Obama?

NATO should be finished, and finished off, before it morphs into something malignant under the leadership of politically cancerous eurotrash.

You and Lyndsey are being distracted:

Obama should be finished, and finished off, before HE morphs into something malignant

You see Obama is setting up Libya to be ruled by radicals known as Al Qaeda similar to what he did in Egypt by encouraging the Muslim Brotherhood there with $Billions of US Taxpayer money.

Obama is doing exactly what you'd expect a radical Muslim to do. Because the US Press will not identify him as a Muslim intent on doing serious irreperable harm to the US, you won't even consider that is WHY Obama risks impeachment to use the US Military illegally.

Graham is too stupid to even exist, he'll never get it.

Dear South Carolina,

Please join with the rest of the conservatives in America and get rid of this flaming joke at your earliest opportunity. If you can’t do that, then make him run as what he really is - an extreme leftist.

Thanks for understanding.

- America

Is that a promise Lindsay?

The USA would do well to get out of NATO.

Graham is so foolish. He and McCain are the Bobsie Twins of dissembling Conservatism by the numbers.

NATO violated their charter by bombing Libya. NATO is already finished.

As long as there are more than 33 rats in the Senate Obama is in no danger of being removed from office that way no matter what he does.

Lindsay, NATO is no longer needed. The Warsaw Pact, what NATO was formed to oppose, dissolved twenty years ago with the Soviet Union.

Enough with the tripwires that pull us into other country’s problems. This is how WWI got started: if you go to war, I go to war.

-——Not to mention the Turks.——

Well, considering the confrontation between the Turks and the Syrians, there is the possibility of but another NATO engagement.

If Syria fires on the Turks, the treaty will cause NATO to assist Turkey in the engagement. The USAF will be flying sorties to Damascus from Iraq

Even Forest Gump could figure out if EVERYTHING Obama does hurts America AND it is exactly what a radical Muslim would do if he were playing President then even an idiot would conclude:

Obama is a Muslim doing everything he can to destroy the UNITED STATES.
