Crocs/flip-flops/sneakers on the ground, bitchez!
The hipocrisy of the "protesters" of the Iraq war is sickening to say the least:
agreed. Save for Kucinich and Paul, who have both been pretty consistant.
"...if asked to do so by the United Nations..."
So not the same situation as the illegal Iraqi war.
If the UN is your sovereign, you are fucked.
Moron.. Perhaps the blue helmets will do you like the population of African countries..
Calm yourself Calmyourself.
You are so stuck in your idealogue box you can't see the hypocrisy of our TinC, his controllers and all their other minyons.
Without any debate, discussion, consideration of goals or strategies he started a war in Libya. Without a shred of reasonable national interest (Libya is a small player in oil compared to others). The atrocities by Moammar against his own people pale in comparison to Hussein's and family's reigh of terror (that is Saddam Hussein, not Barack).
The only question is why? That will be told as time unfolds. It is definitely a step in a larger strategy.
Or maybe Barry H. thinks this is just a cool video game to play between games of golf?
Another non-story. It took all these nations together with no No votes, including support from some Arab nations and five abstentions including Russia and China, to get a no-fly zone over Libya. And immediately they began to have buyers’ remorse over the no-fly zone, including The Arab League. By getting a couple of planes from super-puppet Qatar, they were able to proceed.
So to get land troops in there is not going to be as easy as it looks. I notice there’s no mention of NATO. Since when does the EU have a military force? Maybe they’re going to drop euros.
As Nigel Farage says: The EU has no legitimacy or consent to take any military action.
Sarkozy probably will step in with the “boots on the ground,” and will make the whole world mad, and it will be a mess.
There is a possibility that the rebels can make significant advances with spotters on the ground calling in specific air attacks on Gaddafi forces. Up to now the air attacks have not been coordinated with rebel ground troops.
As to the president of The European Council -.the institution of the European Union (EU) responsible for defining the general political direction and priorities of the Union - why it’s Gaddafi’s old friend Hermann Von Rompuy, who hailed 2009 as “the first year of global governance.”
America could go in with every ground troop it has available , and the American people will do NOTHING. The Government does not care about you serfs , keep paying your taxes to fund their wars and shut the fuck up.
Trying to inject logic, reason and the concept that the politicians work for the best interests of the sheeple will only spoil your breakfast. Say one thing, do something else. That's how to succeed in the new world order of duplicity.
Oh con-traire, reason will take you a long way here:
Europeans are looking after their economic security. Libyan oil is close by and of high quality. 10% of their supply comes from there. France is shameless about use of force and bribery in manipulating things in Africa, and north Africa in particular. Ditto for Italy, though principally via business and not force(anymore). On top of the oil supply issues, the Europeans don't want to see even more immigration pressure coming from these regions.
Obama got snowed seven ways to sunday by the europeans on this issue, and the Europeans, including Sarkozy in particular, got snowed by a certain "philosopher" Bernard Henri Levi, with the sympathy toward the plucky underdog in this fight. They are in fact all assholes in this fight, in this strongly tribalized country. Plenty of foreign islamo nutters are joining them.
This is who we are "helping" with our far superior air capabilities over there: Self centered europeans who lacked the muscle to pull this off well themselves, and sundry assholes for allah and/or tribally-driven power mad haters on the ground.
... he started a war in Libya.
Good grief!! Do you guys really believe that down is up and black is white? Establishing a no-fly zone over already-established hostilities and starting a war are two different activities. But then, you know that already, don't you. It's just that you find the misuse of words to be helpful in demonizing your opponents, right?
Without a shred of reasonable national interest ...
I think it is in our interest to encourage european countries to become actively involved in solving the problems in their own neighborhood - instead of expecting the U.S. always to be the one to do it. I think that is at least partially what this exercise by the U.S. has been about. I'm guessing that this project would have been dead before it started if the U.S. had declined to participate.
"this project would have been dead before it started if the U.S. had declined to participate."
exactly the point of why we shouldn't have been involved
If the goal is to get European countries to police their own neighborhoods, yes, we should have been involved in the limited way we were. Otherwise, nobody does anything, and we get sucked into something much larger later.
"Limited" way were involved? You call that "limited". Let's try moral support only next time, see if that works.
If a revolution started hear in America i don't think Libya would enforce a no fly zone for us, anyway the bankers have got what they wanted a new central bank (at interest)now all they need to do is kill Gaddafi." I care not who makes the laws as long as i get to issue the money"
Since when is a civil war in Libya any of Europe's business? How are the Danes or Swedes affected?
Why is it in our interest or responsibilities to get Europe to act? Because you think so? Are they little children that must be cajoled into action?
They are weak and must rely on the US to backstop them.
If they tried to go it alone, the proles might discover how weak they are.
It sure is and why aren't the protesters talking about War for Oil now? Or Blood on Obama's hands?
The hipocrisy of the "protesters" of the Iraq war is sickening to say the least:
When the NOW girls condoned intern bjs, the message was clear. The left is incapable of hypocrisy by dint of them being the arbiters, the definers of it.
Cry havoc and let slip the crocs of war
The Roman armies wore sandals didn't they?
The Europeans' boots BTW, are referred to as "booties", as in "booties on the ground". The French and their mercenaries love a good double-entendre you see, booty on the ground, booties. And "boots" is so butch. They are too post-modern for that.
Have you ever seen the sun (Have you ever seen the sun, have you ever seen the sun) Rising high to the sound of a gun? Blue and white and yellow sun (Blue and white and yellow sun, blue and white and yellow sun) Capturing imagination We went down to the piccolo drum Never made it into the hum Down to the piccolo Down to the piccolo Down to the piccolo snare Have you ever seen the sea (Have you ever seen the sea) Painted red by a bleeding army? Sky hawks gather for a feast (Sky hawks gather for a feast) Of pawns who will never find peace Tumbledown to the piccolo snare Never made it into the square Down to the piccolo Down to the piccolo No one particular cared
Dreaming, dreaming, dreaming, dreaming Now! We can go home again To our old haunts again Together Now scatter us all around Far from the bugle sound Surrender Safe in the exclusion zone Catch me and take me home As brother fights brother Wrapped up in tarnished flags Banners and body bags Surrender! (Surrender!) Dreaming, dreaming, dreaming, dreaming Dreaming, dreaming, dreaming, dreaming Dreaming, dreaming, dreaming, dreaming
Team America, fuck yeah! Killin for freedom, god damnit.
I'm still not giving back my Nobel Peace Prize.
Gadaffi needs women
Berlesconi needs women!!
This means WAR!!!
No, Gadaffi needs nurses!!
Don't give back the cash either HdC - you can give it to a charity for all those Libyan orphans we are about to create - God save us from ourselves
There will not be any orphans we kill everyone.
We are paying too much for precision weaponry, JAG officers, and rules of engagement training then. Extermination could be done cheaply, as the Rwandans demonstrated some few years ago. Don't even need to spend on bullets. So, I'm gonna say your rhetoric is way way over the top, and add that most orphans created will have been created by their stupid fathers, who chose to man anti-aircraft batteries, command and control centers, or tank columns, when the rational thing for them to do would be to go home.
Does anybody here know that Gaddafi helped save the big Italian bank Unicredit and with it Bank Austria (and maybe others?). How convenient if Gadaffi is out of the picture because then the billions he put in will simply be confiscated forever....
The only thing worse than being an enemy of the west is being its 'friend'. Just ask Hosni!
The powers that be always used war as a way to maximize their profits and take attention off the dealings. And here we are again. Lucky we have Al-Qaida or the puppet masters would have to invent some other foe.
I keep picturing Gadaffi as that poor bastard on Training Day that had the money buried under his kitchen floor. The new recruit said something about why are you doing this to your friend.
"Why is he my friend, because he knows my first name? Roger sold dope to kids. The world is a better place without him. This man was the biggest major violator in Los Angeles. This is the game. I'm playing his ass. That's my job. That's your job. I watched that cocksucker operate with impunity for over 10 years, and now I got him. The shit's chess, it ain't checkers. What, we all of a sudden gonna roll up in a black-and-white? Come on, man, take the money."
Yup, that's the part. Good flick.
In the Libya case, Sarkozy would be Roger, and Obama would be the rookie I guess.
They are going to set up a ring around their new Al Qaeda Oil Inc. operation they control now and not let Red Rover come over
Obama was asked in an interview with the Spanish-language network Univision if a land invasion would be out of the question in the event air strikes fail to dislodge Gadhafi from power. Obama replied that it was "absolutely" out of the question.
Anyone who still believes in Obama deserves the arse fecking they are in for.
We are talking Europe here....!! What US says in this matter means zilt..
LOL - thats a good one..
Obama promises come with an expiration date of about one hour.
He has been taking notes on expiration dates of currency market interventions by central banks. Fuckey see, fuckey do.
! ! !
Then he called the EU and said don't worry about that, it was just campaign rhetoric.
Nah, it wasn't rhetoric. He was completely honest when he said he wouldn't invade. Something about his allergies to the DU in the sand.
