BREAKING!! New White House press secretary says Libya crisis not about Muammar Qadhafi!!
politico ^ | 02/24/2011 | p

Posted on 02/24/2011 11:15:21 AM PST by milwguy

Carney brushes aside a question on why Obama was comfortable using Hosni Mubarak's name but not Muammar Qadhafi's. "I wouldn't read over -- read too much into that, because the overlying principle here is that it's not about the individual leaders," he says.

Much as I hate to admit it he is correct. The problem with the middle east is that Muslims are stark raving mad. The only type of government that can keep them from running amok is a brutal dictatorship of the type that governs most all of the middle east today. Qadhafi is just like most of the other crazy leaders that are the only ones who have ever had any success at controlling their populations.

These revolutions will only result in a new and different brutal dictatorship or generalized civil war, not democracy, not economic or political or religious freedom. Women will still be the property of their husbands or fathers. Nothing significant will change.

Libya, a member of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), holds the largest proven oil reserves in Africa, followed by Nigeria and Algeria (see below). According to Oil and Gas Journal (OGJ), Libya had total proven oil reserves of 44 billion barrels as of January 2010. http://www.eia.doe.gov/cabs/Libya/Oil.html

Welll....he's new....his physical appearance keeps up with the dictum "nobody can look better than the little tin god", he's "wet behind the ears", and he replaced the single most reptilian, disgusting waste of humanity ever to camp behind that particular podium...

But nobody ever said he was smart, astute, or knowledgeable.

The new press secretary reminds me of Eric Stratton in the “trial” scene in Animal House.

Incompetence cannot be TRAINED. It has to be born!

Incompetence can also be read from a teleprompter.

That is appreciated. I feel better. Hope they get out soon. I had heard that 2000 Chinese and 1000 Turks left by Ferry but not sure the time they left.

It’s not quite the same as using fighter-bombers on your own people, but Obama did send AF-1 to buzz at low-altitude New York City’s downtown Manhattan and the Battery District a few months into his usurpation of the office of POTUS. That’s where on 9/11/2001 the two jetliners flew into the World Trade Center. The overflight by Air Force One (one of the planes used as AF-1 at times) terrified New Yorkers. It was a real terror attack.

It was an attack by Obama on us Americans, since their was no prior notice of the flight and the panic and terror it would generate was reasonably foreseeable.

Great point! I suspect you have a good read on the hidden psychology of this.

Great point! I suspect you have a good read on the hidden psychology of this.

Well, as a fellow Marxist and Muslim, Qaddafi was a natural ally for Louis Farrakhan and Obama's "spiritual mentor" Jeremiah Wright - I'm dispensing here with the pretence that Wright and his church are Christian in any meaningful sense. They established a long-term relationship with the dictator that began with a visit to Libya in the early 1980s. There is little doubt that Obama would have seen Qaddafi as an important ally of the leftist / Muslim movement in America.

You're probably aware that Qaddafi supported Obama's campaign, and recently referred to Obama as both a Muslim and a friend.

Also worth noting is that Qaddafi provided funding for the construction of the national center of the Nation of Islam on the South Side of Chicago, not far from Obama's future home. In the mid-1980s, Qaddafi offered $1 billion to help Farrakhan develop a political lobby in America. A Nation of Islam member reported that Qaddafi wanted to create a black revolution in America. Meanwhile, Farrakhan was giving speeches in a series of countries hostile to the US, saying "God will destroy America through the hands of the Muslims." That's the same Farrakhan who, lest we forget, called Obama "a herald of the Messiah."

Given all this, it is no surprise that Obama was reluctant to denounce his long-time compatriot and benefactor just because he ordered the murders of a few hundred citizens in the defense of his regime.

I actually know a family that is mostly carnies...yes they are different...but not really at his level. When they speak they make more sense than he does.
