McCain: US should lead the way in Libya aid (McInsane Alert)
KTAR-FM 92.3 News Talk Radio Phoenix, Ariz. ^ | 2011-08-22 | Colin Smith

Posted on 08/22/2011 7:31:52 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

Arizona Sen. John McCain said the United States must lead the world in providing support to Libya as they begin their post-Gadhafi era.

"I think we would be well-served if we make sure that there is not an extremist takeover or hijacking of this revolution," McCain said.

McCain appeared on CNN's "The Situation Room", where he said an earlier and stronger showing of power by the U.S. in the air could have shortened the conflict significantly.

"The only thing that was holding [Gadhafi] in power was money and fear," McCain said. "Once those are dissipated by military strength, it is very difficult for anyone to be loyal to Gadhafi."

DC is stuck on stupid. They have overspent for so long, it is a way of life. The concept that the gravy train might come to an end is beyond their grasp. I wish McCain hadn’t just won another term. He has long outstayed his welcome. If enough TEA partiers win in ‘12, he will at least experience some discomfort.

McCain was on Greta tonight and he effectively said that the Libyan rebels have no connection(s) to Al Qaida. I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

What discomfort?

The bastard derives pleasure from attacking conservatives and helping left-wing fascists like Obama.

Regardless of who wins, McCain will continue his treachery.

It really makes sense that this lame ass was a presidential candidate.

I used to ask how the Arab countries picked the psychos that run their countries. I find myself asking the same thing about America now.

Enough TEA partiers will upset the DC Ruling Class applecart. Nothing could be worse, short of losing the election [too late for that] than for the DC culture to shift with a younger, more fiscally conservative sea change, and for the Old Timers who think they own the place to be minimized. Trust me, it would drive McCain crazy—and it would show.

McCain said the same kind of things, unchallenged, on Fox just a little while ago (on the blonde with the botched plastic surgery’s show). By now he’s senile as well as being delusional.

McCain is a not so useful idiot.

The die is cast in Libya. No amount of US $$$ or involvement can change what is already taking place.

Iran and the Islamic Brotherhood will insure that the “new” Gov’t follows a strict interpretation of the Koran and Sharai’a Law. Elections, if they have them at all, will be a sham.

So much for the Islamic Spring and their “democracy” movement.

If there is a leader who is not obeying AQ's orders he will be taken out. Just ask Ahmad Shah Massoud, he knows all about it.

I guess we should line up all the billionaires and insist they empty their accounts. It seems as though Warren Buffet would be happy to contribute.

Buffy should lead the way. I’m having a hard time sleeping at night know poor little Buffy is out there somewhere fretting over not being able to pay all the taxes he wants to pay. All the jerk has to do is write out a check to the U.S. Treasury. Unfortuantely, you can’t fix stupid.

It’s getting too close to post time for Jay Leno to pick this up:

“Obama has reached agreement with the Rebels in Libya. He will send them Tea Partyers, to teach them about creating a free constitutional republic. In return, Ghadafi will come to the U.S. to teach Obama how to properly run a dictatorship.”

Ok...set aside for a moment that Libya has like 5 triaxle dump trucks full of gold somewhere -you know, just a trifle.

Let’s see, we borrow more money from China, so we can buy influence in Libya. Oh no, China already had a significant footprint there...???

We get yet another base, infinite lease payments expense and yet more debt.

China gets the oil.

On second thouht, if we can exile John McCain and Obama to Libya, it might be worth it.

“Where are you going to get the money there Juan? We’re broke.”

Well??? So what?? Just add it to the list:

BILLIONS FOR JIHAD!

Obamas 2009 Supplemental Appropriations for Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Pandemic Flu was revised and passed by the full committee.
It gives billions http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2009/05/1...
of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support Sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies.
Read the summary from David Obeys office that was quietly released last week with nary a word from any media.

$3.6 billion, matching the request, to expand and improve capabilities of the Afghan security forces

$400 million, as requested, to build the counterinsurgency capabilities of the Pakistani security forces

Afghanistan:$1.52 billion,$86 million above the request

West Bank and Gaza:$665 million in bilateral economic, humanitarian, and security assistance for the West Bank and Gaza

Jordan:$250 million,$250 million above the request, including $100 million for economic and $150 million for security assistance

Egypt:$360 million,$310 million above the request, including $50 million for economic assistance,$50 million for border security, and $260 million for security assistance

Pakistan:$1.9 billion,$591 million above the request

Iraq:$968 million,$336 million above the request

Oversight:$20 million,$13 million above the request, to expand oversight capacity of the State Department, USAID, and the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan to review programs in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq
Lebanon:$74 million

International Food Assistance:$500 million,$200 million above the request, for PL 480 international food assistance to alleviate suffering during the global economic crisis

Refugee Assistance:$343 million,$50 million above the request, including humanitarian assistance for Gaza. Funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency programs in the West Bank and Gaza is limited to $119 million (Note: Gaza = Hamas)

Disaster Assistance:$200 million to avert famines and provide life-saving assistance during natural disasters and for internally displaced people around the world, including Somalia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, the Middle East and South Asia

Peacekeeping:$837 million for United Nations
peacekeeping operations, including an expanded mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a new mission in Chad and the Central African Republic

Department of Justice:$17 million, matching the request, for counter-terrorism activities and to provide training and assistance for the Iraqi criminal justice system
Obama gives your tax dollars to rebuild Muslim mosques around the world
http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/... #

ACCORDING TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WILL GIVE AWAY NEARLY $6 MILLION OF AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS TO RESTORE 63 HISTORIC AND CULTURAL SITES, INCLUDING ISLAMIC MOSQUES AND MINARETS, IN 55 NATIONS. See the State Department document here.
http://exchanges.state.gov/media/pdfs/office-...

And THAT’S just the tip of the iceberg.
THIS will blow your mind!!

http://gbk.eads.usaidallnet.gov/
They should have 2010 up, but they don’t. That’s where you’ll find Obama’s largesse towards Muslim countries really go off the charts.

First, make a list of every congressman and senator with assets over $250,000. Confiscate the lot. Convert it into $100 bills. Drop it over Tripoli.

Hey, as long as they want to throw money down a rat hole, let’s make sure it’s THEIR money.
