Skip to comments.Capture of Libyan town smacks of revenge, not reconciliation

Fighters yelling "Allahu akbar (God is greatest) and "Today Bani Walid is finished" sought to make their mark with gunfire and rocket-propelled grenades on a town they say still provides a refuge to many of the overthrown Libyan leader's followers.

I have also seen this discussed in Al Jazeera and in Russian sources, which I hesitate to believe reports from.
What troubles me is the connection between Obama's support of the Muslim Brotherhood & some groups connected with Al Qaeda. And the talk of arms flowing from Libya (Bengazi) and the groups trying to overthrow Assad in Syria. Assad is clearly an evil man and regime, but I am not sure Al Qaeda is better.
What do you think?
When you are part of a society that sees reconcilliation as weakness then you know how to handle those that get out of line!!
I’d like to see a graph of the unrest in the individual, recent dictatorships of Syria, Egypt, & Libya, and how it relates to the recent manipulation of those territories.
Is the unified installation of the Islamic Brotherhood being facilitated by the West despite its connections to al-Qa’ida? Not a plan that would sell very well especially during an election season.
Gotta love that Arab Spring!
Even Assad is better than Al Qaeda, and even Ghadaffi was better than Al Qaeda. They were/are at least actual governments that may have been repressive and not friendly to the US, but they were at least recognizable entities that another country or even their own citizens could deal with. (Ghadaffi was actually engaged in reforms at the time that he was overthrown by Al Qaeda...er, I mean the Libyan Freedom Fighters...)
Nobody can deal with the crazy warlords and ruthless fanatics that make up Al Qaeda, and by supporting AQ, we have just thrown those countries back to the Stone Age.
And it is very duplicitous of Obama to say he didn’t know that supporting the “rebels” was essentially supporting the Muslim Brotherhood (in fact, Obama supported them openly in Egypt) and Al Qaeda.
I can't prove it but I think British Petroleum was intriguing with various eastern Libyan factions leading up to the revolt. BP, who is joined at the hip with the Obama Administration, planned on getting a more profitable deal from a post-Gaddafi government. But the NATO-backed revolution has unleashed a movement that may well displace the “moderates” and replace BP, Exxon and the others with the Chinese.
Assad in Syria, and the people who support him, are carefully considering their options. Top options (1) win, at all costs, (2) die.
Consequences of a pact with the Devil.
He is real. And Obozo’s actions indicate he serves “the father of Lies”.
Yes, I agree.
And it was no “accident”. Obozo intended from day 1 to destroy the US economy, military, culture and rule of law.
We shall soon see if the GOP has the balls to deal with these vermin after the November election.
