Skip to comments.Republicans Push for U.S. Role in Rebuilding Libya
Posted on 10/21/2011 8:43:20 PM PDT by tobyhill
With Muammar Qaddafi finally out of the picture, Republican lawmakers are pressing the U.S. to open its wallet to help the new regime in Libya rebuild its nation, restore essential services and care for those wounded in the eight-months-long bloody conflict an expense they say oil-rich Libya can and will reimburse.
Theyre willing to reimburse us. Its not a matter of money, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told Fox News, making a tough sales pitch in an era of high unemployment and increasing austerity.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., noted that the Libyans top request was for help in tending to the countrys wounded and that the French and Germans have reached agreements with the new government to treat them.

See that kids, things aren’t so bad after all.
Yes, we need to spend billions rebuilding Libya, an oil-rich country, to soothe our consciences for all the innocent Libyan bystanders our bombs killed. /s
Yes, let us help rebuild a shariah compliant country. Idiots.
Bloody hell no!
And if you believe that....
Zero is a patriot
Billary is a hawk
and plugs is a genius.
no no no no no
No....The Libyans are going to pay for it. They just need LEADERS...it’s still a backwards country.
We don’t have the money to give to the military contractors right now, sorry.
“Theyre willing to reimburse us.”
Haha, good luck with that one,
F’in HELL NO.
quadaffy was deposed to make room for the muslim brotherhood to take control of Lybia just like Egypt.
And now we have AMERICAN politicians who want to send money to these feral humans who want to kill us?
Yeah, right. Wanna buy a bridge?
This is the part of Ron Paul I agree with.
P.S.....ask any Floridian what love bugs do during a special season of the year.
I guess they’re worried about their war money now that Iraq is shutting down.
There needs to be a massive protest if they even vote on this.
McCain is flitting story to story today, making an ass of himself each time he lands.
Good luck with that Johnnie. Perhaps you can get your wife to write them a check.
The U.S. “role” in rebuilding Libya involves one thing...MONEY!
Native Libyans of sound mind and judgement will rebuild Libya. No one else and with no else’s money. Not the Brits or French. What’s left of the Libyan population, assuming popular divination, will determine the outcome of Moammar’s demise. No one else. We can’t no matter the dollars.
They have to devise a government, constitution, monetary system, and enforcement force in order to even think of sending them any funds.
If Libya has the money to reimburse us, then they have the money to rebuild.
No thanks, along with the Iran war for the “Saudi bomb plot.”
“Republican lawmakers are pressing the U.S. to open its wallet to help the new regime in Libya rebuild its nation, restore essential services and care for those wounded in the eight-months-long bloody conflict an expense they say oil-rich Libya can and will reimburse.”
ARGHHHHHH . . . Why doesn’t John McCain open his wife’s wallet.
No No No No No No No No No No No No No!
We dont need to prop someone up just to go fight them 20 years from now. Let them tear each other to shreds, it is their choice and their war.
“No thanks, along with the Iran war for the Saudi bomb plot.”
You noticed that one too? I’m glad we’re finally catching on.
Friggin RINOs are all alike.When is this airhead going to a nursing home? We cannot afford 2 more loosers Graham is pushing for slavery and Mc Lame is out of his mind............
McCain? Graham? Hell NO!
Republicans Push for U.S. Role in Rebuilding Libya
Not really Republicans. Just McCain running his big mouth and Graham as his chorus.
“an expense they say oil-rich Libya can and will reimburse.”
Just like that oil rich Iraq is going to reimburse us for that war.
In doing a quick glance over the article I see the name Mccain and Gramisty, Didn’t have to read any farther. Not worth the time..they both stink. Should join the democrat party and save us from their stupidy...
Let the European Nato Countries rebuild Libya - they went in their and supported the rebels for oil. Two stupid republicans - the Muslim radicals are going to overtake this country as they are doing in Egypt - NO HELP
And who didn’t know this wasn’t coming!
Once again the RINOs show how much they are out of touch with the real world.
Sure,show islamic nutjobs who want to kill all non-muslims that we are willing to help them. Maybe park a Hospital ship off their shore to treat their wounded or airlift them to a US military hospital. Then they will love us. Worked so well in that one Nation where they got hit with a tidal wave. They took our help but wouldnt allow our carrier in their water or for us to land troops to help.
After ten years what do we have to show for that " good for big business deal"? Billions of tax payers dollars gone, a dead tyrant we could have killed anytime we wanted to in the preceding ten years with a bullet or a bomb.
We had an Iraq with a tyrant that was living in the 17th century that hated us before and now we have a 17th century Iraq with new tyrants that hate us now.
We have Businesses, businessmen and politicians that were rich and powerful then and or more rich and powerful now.
Now the worst of all our soldiers, hundreds dead, hundreds more maimed, wounded,living with nightmares,families torn, struggling to piece together some kind of life while those who sent them and got richer are cutting their medical and retirement benefits so that they can continue to furnish people like Ham-mas and the PLO with their own terrorist welfare state on land they take from the free state of Israel.
Just reading the title how did I know it involved McCain and his lap dog Graham?? NO McLAME...HECK NO GRAHAMNESTY! McCain apparently has a lifetime pass to the Senate but I for one am going to make sure Litte Lindsey’s time expires in 2014!!!!!
Maybe they could reimburse us by finding and returning to us the 20,000 stinger missiles that have gone missing from the Libyan stockpiles. (Al Queda probably has them already)
How'd that work out, btw?
I knew this was going to happen ONLY I thought this suggestion would be forthcomming from Dear Leader and the Commie, Demo-Rats in Congress, NOT from some Republitards.
How'a about we take a wait and see attitude until we know who will end up in power?
Nothing like pouring BILLIONS into what will no doubt, be another "Islamist Republic" which they in turn will use against us
Remember, you can't fix stoooopid, but you can vote it out!!!
War is a profit center. The right people have made gobs of money from Iraq, are making gobs of money from Afghanistan, and will make gobs of money from Libya. It’s what we do.
