Gingrich: Egypt and Libya attacks connected; backs Romney statement on Pres. Obama
CNN ^ | 9/12/2012 | Staff

Posted on 09/12/2012 7:12:20 AM PDT by Palmetto Patriot

Newt Gingrich suggests a connection between Libya and Egypt uprisings and attacks and backs Mitt Romney’s statement yesterday that said President Obama sympathized with attackers.

Gingrich says, “This is not just about Libya. You don’t get, simultaneously, attacks in Benghazi and Cairo, in Libya and Egypt on a purely local basis. And you don’t get them on 9/11, a day we’re already honoring terrorist attacks against the United States, without a fair amount of collusion and a fair amount of planning. I think you have to look at this in a larger context…. There’s a substantial faction, particularly in Benghazi, which was sending people to Iraq to kill Americans. There’s a substantial faction in Egypt which wants to defeat the United States and destroy Israel. That faction looks for opportunities to do things to hurt the United States and yesterday was the example of an attack that’s part of a very long war that we’re going to be at for a very long time.”

In the interview:

"How can the US government apologize for a film no one has seen, which is what the Embassy in Cairo did yesterday…. It’s not just about an event in Libya. It’s about a longer war, part of which we were being reminded of yesterday on 9/11.”

Gingrich was right but the US could end it with in an hour or so if they wanted. But there's no money in doing that, just more dead Americans.

Everyone in the administration and The Obama Media seems to be pretending they haven't noticed
these attacks took place on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

And Hillary is proclaiming that this outrage was committed by a “small” group of fanatics. Anything like this is always committed by a “small” number of people but what isn’t stated is that it always happens with the massive support of the people of Libya and Egypt. Hillary, a total incompetent at what she does, is again lying and deceiving and the response from the White Hut is a disgrace. Charles Krauthammer was right: They can all “Go to Hell” the perpetrators and their supporters and their apologists and defenders in our government. We need to clean out all of this corrupt crap in November!!!

This is part and parcel with what is going on in Syria. The various Muslim sects are having a sort of uncivil war, and this is an effort to drag in the Western powers, most particularly the United States.

The first and nearest objective is Israel, which has gone into a full military alert, with or without the US on board.

The axis of evil now extends Iran to Egypt and through Syria, and makes a nearly complete encirclement of Israel. Even Iraq, once thought to be won back from this axis, is deserting all that had been established at great cost, as al Qaeda in Iraq asserts greater and greater pressure.

Barack Hussein Obama has a difficult decision to make, does he stand with the Sunni, the Shi’ites, or the Alawites? Each of these sects is at odds with both of of the other two, and any alliances that do take place, are for one purpose only, to drive out both the “great Satan” and the “little Satan”.

The assault on the embassies and the murder of our envoy are just one front on this war.

Don't forget that Obama refused to make time to meet with the Israeli PM who voiced his willingness to travel to whatever city Obama wished to meet in. Taken as a whole the events of Yesterday 9/11 compose a message from Obama’s Administration. One of Apology, weakness, and mixed signals about American values.

Yet he entertained members of the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House.

Obama is either totally incompetent, or he is part of Muslim plan to destroy America.

Either way, if he is not replaced in November, America will fall.

Newt is right. American Republicans missed the chance to nominate the only human that knows what is going on and knows how to correct it. That is Newt. And all you Newt ass hats that didn't recognize the only real chance we had, hope you are wallowing in your own crap.

Another blind dumb ass hat. This broad doesn't have a clue and describes perfectly the communists liberal mindset. Muslims are the garbage of the earth.

Snubbing Netanyahu was a signal from obama to the muslims telling them to go for it. Netanyahu knows this. He also knows that half the people in this country hates the Israelis as much as the muslims hates them. I can see Israel going out in a blaze of glory and taking care of our muslim problem at the same time. My hope is to see Jesus Christ show up and take care of Israel and rule for a thousand years.

Or Ezekiel’s War, perhaps. The Russians, Syrians, Egyptians, and Iranians all come down out of the mountain to capture Israel, with a coordinated attack conventional/nuclear attack on Tel Aviv.

The missiles fall harmlessly on to Tel Aviv, and the Israeli Army routes them in the mountains.

They use the nuclear fuel in the rockets to power their reactors for another seven years.

And the beginning of the end of days.

The Lord made a promise to Israel. I wouldn’t bet against Him.

As for Netanyahu, falling back on Yahweh is hoping for the best. He has to prepare for the worst.

I cannot believe he’s standing alone.

I hate to say this, but I predict a nuclear attack on the United States before the election. Obama’s just signaled the go ahead, and you see what is happening overseas.

Were the Russian’s to launch on us, all Obama has to do is delay giving the order with the football, and it is over.

Then you have the geopolitical situation where it is truly Israel vs the World. No US to back them, just the Lord. That’s what the Lord would want, and that’s what the Lord has done throughout history.

The message to Israel is, “You don’t need anybody but Me.”

If it happens, it will happen probably in the next few days, since the last thing the Muslim’s want is for Obama to get pressured into doing something patriotic, like raise the DefCon. There are more Marines headed into Libya, which was stupid.

The play is to position a Carrier Task Force and start bombing and droning rebel positions to remind them who’s hand they are biting. The Europeans must be quaking in their boots, given all the oil they get from the Libyans.

Last question: Where in the hell is Romney on this? If you can’t win the election based on the mess in Chicago and the messes in the ME, you shouldn’t be President.

Gingrich is about to climb out of his skin. Personally, I think he’d be a good SecState.

The long war is being lost if we allow Saudi Wahabbists to run every madrassa from here to Asia.

Scary times indeed. And, yes, obama has just told the world you can attack us and we’ll blame ourselves for hurting the attacker’s feelings.

Netanyahu has no choice. And I wouldn’t be surprised to see a nuclear winter out of this. When Israel uses a nuke all the muslim countries who have nukes will use theirs. Hope I’m over reacting.

Who in The Media agrees with Newt, and who agrees with EMPTY CHAIR-MAN OBAMA?
