The difference between voting present and real leadership.
(Big Hollywood) Yesterday, Sarah Palin called on NATO to enforce the no-fly zone over Libya. From her Facebook Page, via FOX Nation:
Its a little perplexing looking at the White House today. There was a statement on the horrible earthquake in New Zealand, and certainly our hearts go out to all those affected by this horrible natural disaster. But nothing on the slaughter in Libya? The protests in many places in the Middle East affect regimes that have cooperated with the U.S. on issues from peace with Israel, fighting al Qaeda, hosting our military forces, or cooperating against Irans nuclear ambitions. Gaddafis Libya is different. For four decades, this tyrant has held power. Gaddafi was Osama before Osama hit the scene. He ordered the bombing of a disco in Germany to kill Americans. When he paid the price for that after President Reagan rightly ordered retaliation he directed his agents to blow up Pan Am Flight 103. They did, and more than 250 innocent people died. Gaddafi tried to come in from the cold in 2003 scared by the demonstration effect of Iraq. But we should have no illusions. Gaddafi is a brutal killer and Libya not to mention the world would be better off if he were out of power. Now is the time to speak out. Speak out for the long-suffering Libyan people. Speak out for the victims of Gaddafis terror. NATO and our allies should look at establishing a no-fly zone so Libyan air forces cannot continue slaughtering the Libyan people. We should not be afraid of freedom, especially when it comes to people suffering under a brutal enemy of America.
Today, NATO officials responded. YNet News reported:
NATO forces may attack forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi if the Libyan air force continues to bomb anti-government protesters, the London-based al-Quds al-Arabi reported, citing a European official claiming the US had threatened to intervene in the violence.
Oh . And, of course, Sarah Palin isnt even in office.
Meanwhile, somewhere hiding out in the White House, Obama voted present.
I don’t get it:
Who is revolting in Libya? Is it not an Islamic Revolution which means bearded mullahs want to take power? If that’s the case, are we the USA not better off with the Col. K in power?
**even more reason to put boots on the ground to protect those citizens....**
OFuhrer is preparing.. he will be sending a platoon of LAWYERS with affadavits and Court petitions.
His backup plan will be more dangerous... Sending SEIU agents to assist in quelling the violence..
do I need to /sarc this???
Nah, he’s been practicing his lay-ups and three-point shots...
Frickin jug-eared muslim a$$hole...
God bless you, Gov Palin.
Since Gadaffi went all Ceausescu on his own people he cannot be allowed to stay. There's no way the West can support him
But a popular uprising will or has already been co-opted by the fanatics. Given Lybia's (sp) zero history of Government By The People, plus its people's colossal ignorance and illiteracy the best pragmatic answer would be a new strong man: someone less gibberingly insane than Gadaffi who could preside over some or all of Libya and bring in legal and land reforms (protection of property etc).
What the West could bring to such a scenario is prompt recognition of the new guy, contracts etc. And maybe help find the guy in the first place. What the West cannot do is 'nothing', and just hope it all works out.
And one islamist lunatic can be replaced with another.
I expect most of them are already gone, and I doubt there are tens of thousands to begin with. US companies don't have a significant presence in Libya. Many times more Italians.
Evacuate them but no forces on the ground. That would give both sides an excuse to turn on us as a common enemy
You need a firebase that American citizens can flee too and be gotten out of the country. After they are gone the marines go off the coast.
Without the force on the ground the citizens are in danger of any and all thugs.
You remember IRAN 1979 US embassy?
