Gunmen Storm Libyan Parliament, Start Shooting

Tyler Durden's picture




 

When it comes to expressing democratic opinion, one can wait for one's corrupt congressional critter to do something, which will never happen if that something is against the will of the largest lobbying client, or one can take matters into their own hands. The latter is what disgruntled Libyans did moments ago. From Reuters:

  • GUNMEN STORM LIBYAN PARLIAMENT, START SHOOTING AND FORCE LAWMAKERS TO ABANDON VOTE ON NEXT PM -SPOKESMAN
  • SEVERAL PEOPLE WOUNDED BY SHOOTING AT LIBYA'S PARLIAMENT, GUNMEN ARE ALLIED TO ONE OF THE DEFEATED PM CANDIDATES

It may not be the most polite way to get one's views across but it gets the job done. But more importantly, when it comes to the epic chaos that is post-CIA intervention Libya, what difference does it make if parliament is stormed by enraged vigilantes?

I just can't get over that.  Geopolitics and FUCKING COOKIES!  Seriously, WTF?  That is one dumb fucking cunt.  I can almost hear the thought process going on:  "Like, OMG!  Lets bake some cookies and go around and give them to Ukrainian police!  That'll, like, totally win them over!"

The Yale/Harvard/Berkeley selfie generation IS the Obama regime.  The dangerous naivete of these inexperienced "progressives" was clearly manifest in the Egyptian debacle.

Edit.  Don't forget, Kerry brought his dog to "bring the chldren to work" day at the State Department last week.  Very disturbing really.

Forget them....they have already started at home. Been to Detroit lately? Or Camden? The federal government is indebting everyone to build an emerald city of lobbyists and government contractors. Well except for the intelligence arm run out of Silicon Valley under the guise of private companies, but really just the NSA and Wall Street the real decision makers and repository of money...though they keep the accounting numbers off shore!

Yes, the cancer is world wide. Corruption is now global and we aren't allowed to ask WHO is behind a lot of it. Ukraine for example, I studied up on the issue over the weekend, it appears all parties inside that nation are so corrupt it defies words. All sides are nation rapers and if Ukraine wants to progress then the people, both ethnic groups need to clean some fucking house. I mean French revolution style.

welcome to the club of those who see corruption as the global problem number one, then

yet if you study the history of bloody revolutions like the French, you'll realize that they usually don't decrease corruption, they usually just change the class or group of the corrupted

fighting corruption is slow work. it requires dedication, passion for justice and often even identification with the state's goals

True, but they didn't have the internet during the French revolution. People are watching these events unfold world wide in a real time basis. TPTB try to get the masses to believe their story line but the truth comes out far sooner than they would like, and people are seeing that the rot is pervasive across the globe. I believe there is some potential for good to come out of this chaos eventually.

Before the people's "spontaneous" uprising Libyans were amongst the wealthiest people with free health care, education & electricity. They also received a monthly pay-out from the oil revenues. Of course the world hates us for our freedoms.

Seriously, after watching events in Libya and Egypt, along with the media orgasm over "Arab Spring", why did anybody expect a different outcome in Ukraine.

And just think, while the US is behind the curve in the civil unrest department compared to the rest of the world, the signs that it is going to be here in the future are already appearing.  The APD protests and the Bundy ranch are just the beginning.  We got to see that the Occupy protests were useless, meaning that peaceful revolution is not being allowed to work.  There are a plethora of problems plaguing us, but we keep hearing the "All is well" call from Washington DC.
