Over recent years both Britain and America invited Libyan leader Colonel Gadafy into their respective democratic processes, and even turned a blind eye to the many murders committed by Gadafy and his terrorist regimes over many decades. Now however, mad-dog Gadafy has shown his true colours and Obama's mad dog has biten back at the hand that feed it for so long, and only now does the west wing alliance take action after thousands of innocent men, women and children are butchered with American made weapons of destruction now in the hands of Gadafy's oiley regime and paid for with blood money.
The Libyan leader also warned, in a speech that was broadcast on state television, that he will arm civilians with weapons to defend Libya from, what he called, the "colonial, crusader".
He said: "It is now necessary to open the stores and arm all the masses with all types of weapons to defend the independence, unity and honour of Libya.
"We call on the peoples and citizens of the Arab and Islamic nations, Latin America, Asia and Africa to stand by the heroic Libyan people to confront this aggression, which will only increase the Libyan people's strength, firmness and unity."
He also said the Mediterranean and North Africa were now a battleground, and that the interests of countries in the region would be in danger from now on.
Let me guess who's going to go to the rescue of Libya? Chavez????
Well, you know Shiny and Kaddaffy are such good friends that Shiny gave his buddy the benefit of a doubt and held off till the Europeans took the lead. What I am surprised about are the Europeans acting like they were Bush. Instead of negotiating like equals they are forcing their will on a sovereign country. Tsk. Tsk.
From The Council on Foreign Relations..
"On May 15, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice announced that the United States was removing Libya from its list of state sponsors of terrorism and would soon resume normal diplomatic relations with the one-time pariah. Rice said the move was in response to "historic decisions taken by Libya's leadership in 2003 to renounce terrorism and to abandon its weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programs." Yet the resumption of diplomatic ties remains unsettling to some Americans. Though Libya has made a concerted effort to enter the good graces of the international community, leader Muammar el-Qaddafi has amassed a bad human-rights record since he took power in 1969."
So show me the link between Obama and Qaddafi. They aren't buddies and never were. Does the truth have any meaning or does the lynch mob mentality preclude all reason??
Well another one of Shiny's friends thrown under the bus. Kaddaffy, especially supportive regarding Shiny, had said "Regardless of his African belonging, he is of Arab Sudanese descent, or of Muslim descent. He is a man whose policy should be supported, and he should be assisted in implementing it in any way possible, since he is now leaning towards peace." But Kadaffy never let us forget how Arabs really feel about America, "The Arabs hate America, there is no doubt. There is not an Arab that loves America, and even the leaders who the United States considers allies or friends – hate it. The external love is merely hypocrisy or pragmatism. The reason for this is clear – Palestine."
What a difference a year makes.
FINALLY!! SOMEONE standing up for the Palestinians!
Let me see....would you call the way the Palestinian people have been treated Love?
Actions speak just as loud as words, you know.
And, how long ago was that quote? Since "he should be assisted in implementing it in any way possible, since he is now leaning towards peace."
Errr, not anymore!
Get some new slamming points. Yours are old. And tired. And just as hateful as anything else out there.
Can Gadafy remain in control, do his Oily friends want him to stay in power? Better the dog you know! Even if it does bite sometimes

How much racism do you think President Obama's terms CREATED rather than cured? Did he help or hurt the overall cause of race relations ?

WASHINGTON — There may be less than meets the eye to President Barack Obama's statements Monday night that NATO is taking over from the U.S. in Libya and that U.S. action is limited to defending people under attack there by Moammar Gadhafi's forces. In transferring command and control to NATO,...

How do you guys feel about American involvement in Libya? I'm honestly curious and not trying to start a fight. How is this different than Iraq - other than not having troops on the ground? Have we "invaded" a sovereign nation? Was Saddam just as ruthless toward his own people as Gaddafi?...

Why is it okay for the US to harbor weapons of mass destruction, but not okay for any other country?We all know that the US is in possession of weapons of mass destruction. Therefore, why is this okay for the US, but not tolerated (or condoned) for any other country in the world? Shouldn't other...

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney said last week that Obama has a secret agenda for his second term. I'm wondering what that is. Romney did not say. Or is this the old psychological trick of projecting your fault on the other guy. Is it Mitt who has the secret agenda? I surely don't know. Perhaps,...
