CNN: Attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya
Some things just help define Liberalism – the collectivist, big government, government knows best, dependency mind – as a genetic defect akin to the effect of Autism only deeper, and with all the elements of religious idolatry (see http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/10/101027161452.htm).
This guy, Barack Obama, in the course of his 2008 campaign for president, during a debate said that he’d use diplomacy to make peace with our enemies, such as Iran, North Korea, etc. Many of us saw him as naïve and we’ve been proven right.
A much needed place for holding those who may wittingly or unwittingly have, know, or be reluctant to reveal, information that is related to terrorism, GITMO, continues to exist. And this is in testimony to, at best, Obama’s naïveté, and at worst, that he just lied.
But we must note Obama’s claimed reasons for why he said he will close GITMO “by the end of my first term” as “it is used to help recruit people into Al Qaeda.” I do not suggest or agree with closing GITMO, but I do agree with Obama that it will be used as a recruiting tool and submit that this was a known calculated risk at the time GITMO was opened.
The increase or decrease in the use of GITMO as an Islamist recruiting tool is determined by our other actions. For instance, by waging a conventional war, the enemy, the “jihadist,” assumes they keep whatever upper hand they believe they have, shifting priorities to where they feel they’ll be most effective and they will choose to fight in the conventional war and speak of collateral damage atrocities allegedly caused by us in that war.
But our illustrious President Obama, Professor-Naïveté-In-Chief, exacerbates and amplifies the effect of GITMO. This is exemplified by who is President of Egypt today (their party and ideology assuming to resurrect the very same tyranny as before, by use of government power under the idea that it is just and fair because it derives from a religious order, and this takes us to the Liberal religious hypocrisy. Read on…) and by our arms given to help “rebels” carry out a revolution, only to be later found in other countries (Algeria, Mali) where long-standing allies such as France are fighting against these same rebels using our weapons. And this is after the rebels mocked the original dictatorships because the United States was “behind them” by trading with these same dictatorships – in our desire to protect our commerce abroad as required by the Constitution, the origin of the “Commander-In-Chief” power of the President (see U.S. v Lopez, Justice Thomas opinion, pg 588 regarding purpose of army and navy for commerce, http://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/514/549/case.html) – to assure military capability and government stability anywhere in the world for the sole purpose of protecting America’s commercial interests.
Odd how the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal – silenced by the so-called “compromising,” “most transparent,” and “setting aside party” President of the United States, Barack Obama, who asserts executive privilege and ceases from providing the information Congress needs to complete their Constitutional role in oversight – is then emulated in the Middle East using the U.S. Military to do so on a mass scale, “in the name of humanity,” to give guns to these “rebels,” particularly in Libya, backing them only to have them use the United States as the silent partner for their rampage that leads to a new tyranny where we remain hated, if not directly in Libya then wherever else our arms “walked.” And, to be sure, the wars that so many leftists bring up regarding the history of Christianity and how it is a “religion of war, hatred, bigotry, and ignorance” demonstrate again the ailment caused by the Liberal gene defect, which, of course, is not covered by Obamacare. Liberals, and of course their allies in Islam, fail to recognize that IT TAKES AT LEAST 2 TO WAGE WAR. Leftists, with unilateral and unreasonable hate of the United States of America for being a nation founded on Individual Liberty and not collectivist dependency on tyrants, and the persistent spin of lies they’ve gotten away with in promoting this hate, know no bounds. Some simple research of the History of these “Christian wars” will find the Muslims to be the constant opponent, particularly with the Moors, though there is a conscious effort to “gray” their history (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moors and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Moors).
This hatred of America is, again, even further encouraged and exacerbated by our “droning on” militarily. To our enemies we wage a gutless war from the sky, and demonstrate no respect for them by expecting them to be so awestruck by this dastardly deed that they will stand down. Reality is that Iran is now working on its own drones, that our actions only escalated the existing situation. I don’t disagree with using drones to kill our enemies, however moderation is useful, particularly when we’re killing the “information piggy banks” that may know of a cell in the United States existing for some 20 years or more and just waiting for the circumstances to trigger their taking action.
About that escalation of the existing situation… Nukes once didn’t exist, then we used one to decimate Japan who was allied with Hitler and Mussolini at the time, “The Axis of Evil.” This nuke helped expedite the end of World War II with Japan’s almost immediate surrender, and most Japanese, hearing his voice over the radio for the first time, learned their Emperor was not a god. Then, after the treaty to share the technology with Russia, France, England and China, there came the cold war with Russia that perpetuated a continuing escalation of nuclear arms. Of course, the hypocritical Left who ignores history can’t appreciate this pattern that persists even back to the Indians wanting guns to dominate the tribes that didn’t have them. The constant is that the enemy takes on the “can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” attitude and pursues the same weapon, the same technology, path. Drones would obviously be no exception to this rule, but of course, the religious left continues on with their Liberal Gene blindness to history and reason.
The Left didn’t want a war, and so we’re ending them, only to carry on covert, gutless, sneaky operations that only make our enemies hate us even moreso, while disturbing many long friendships as well by our operating inside another nation’s borders without their permission (Americans would be livid if another country were operating kill operations on our soil).
And all of this going on while GITMO, that Obama said was a recruiting tool, remains open, Obama appearing to knowingly exacerbate this effect of GITMO, rendering an amplified and broader hate of the United States far in excess of the original calculated risk of operating GITMO. Those Bush drone strikes were used far less for the simple fact they kept the enemy from seeing us as a persistent dirty fighter who doesn’t fight in the trenches but by some means that only a gutless people, “infidels,” who don’t deserve their standing in the world, would carry out. Of course, this is the hypocrisy of our enemies with their IEDs and suicide mom bombers to even making these claims (see P.S. below), yet our goal by whatever tactic isn’t to increase the ranks of our enemies — right President Obama?
By his 2008 speeches and stated positions, Obama claims he mean to be the successful version of Neville Chamberlain, but now he has abandoned that position by using drones that our enemies can point to as America being more of a bully; America more of a liar in our claims of good done throughout history; America more of an oppressor who needs to be taken down – drones, as Obama is using them, create a silent layer of an imperial America ruling the world from the shadows, and dead Muslims in the streets are pointed to as the example of this fact by those Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda members as well as many others. This is the net effect of wishful thinking in electing Obama in the first place and, a people not learning this lesson, to then re-elect him.
Sure, our enemies will always claim we offended them somehow and want to attack us for doing so, as our existence makes the leaders of these groups powerful. However, handing them the very tools they need to recruit mass numbers in droves only leads to attacks like Benghazi. Consider, other than that 4 Americans died September 11, 2012, what did Christopher Stevens do to deserve to be sexually assaulted (see http://www.examiner.com/article/report-u-s-ambassador-was-raped-before-he-was-murdered)? And by Muslim extremists that execute gays (see http://www.gaypatriot.net/2006/11/27/gay-holocaust-in-iran-4000-killed-and-counting/)? We had drones over Benghazi to record video and take pictures for 6 hours, but not a single one to arm and help the folks on the ground (see http://www.nypost.com/p/news/international/us_watched_as_terror_raged_AypAEEA9OK23rPf7Z5BHWO)? And in pure inexplicable fashion Leon Panetta explains “we can’t just go in with no intelligence.” This ignores the fact that mortar targets had been painted by Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty which is the very intelligence Panetta wanted, that along with the drone video, there was no lack of intelligence to go in and help our fellow Americans.
I must posit that we didn’t use armed drones because of the very fact they are meant to be the silent secret weapon of mass incitement of an entire community to become America’s enemy in lager numbers over time, we can’t have them denounced immediately by the U.N. if used as an overt means of defending one of our Embassies – the Muslims screaming over the so-called innocents we killed, and our cold reference to them as “collateral damage,” when in fact these innocents were protesting and were targeted because they actually are a threat and helped with the attack. But what do we expect to be learned by our enemies when domestically many dependent minorities scream racism over not getting their way, because such screams achieve sympathy and calls for change by those whose emotions speak louder than the fact they haven’t a scintilla of experience in what they speak of. Yes, even our enemies abroad know how to “psych” the ever-EMO Liberal into sacrificing their very lives and freedom for those who see them as an infidel for doing so.
Thank you so much Mr. President for making America an even more hated nation than ever before.
Thank you for reading,
P.S. This excerpt from an article regarding Brigades in Libya should maybe help even the Liberal comprehend how Obama’s drone police is “the ultimate recruiting tool” for America’s enemies:
“The video released by the Brigades in June showed nighttime explosions around the consulate, interlaced with footage of Osama bin Laden and al-Zawahiri, along with images from the 9/11 attacks. At the time the Brigades claimed it had launched the attack in response to the first reports of al-Libi’s death in a drone strike in the tribal areas of Pakistan.” — Emphasis mine, http://edition.cnn.com/2012/09/12/world/africa/libya-attack-jihadists/index.html.
