Invade Libya: Could We Be That Stupid? (Yes We Are!)

Muammer Gaddafi

The Western world is lit up like a search light looking for its next victim…

West casts military net around Libya: The Pentagon is deploying naval and air forces around Libya as the US and UK governments consider tougher measures to force Muammer Gaddafi from power, including the possible establishment of a no-fly zone…

US invasion of Libya?: After the US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated that “nothing is off the table” when it came to Libya, the American Navy started to take tactical positions off the coast of that North African country. At this point, the possibility of any of the major forces in the region, like US military, NATO troops or even UN peacekeepers, setting their feet on Libyan shores should not be ruled out…

Libya: “Cameron Is Plotting Regime Change”: The Libyan regime has accused the British government of being behind the recent unrest in Arab countries. A spokesman for Libya’s Ministry of Information accused UK Prime Minister David Cameron of leading a campaign for regime change in Libya and neighboring countries. Khaled al Koabi claimed to have information that Britain is “planning to carry on some activities that can create an environment of instability in some Arab countries, for the sake of changing regimes”…

Libyan crisis: Britain and allies now risk over-reaction: Criticized for reacting too slowly to the Libyan crisis, Britain and its allies now risk a dangerous, ill-thought out over-reaction in raising the prospect of direct western military intervention. If any lesson has been learned from Iraq and Afghanistan, it is that while it is very easy to get into a war in the Middle East, it is difficult to control events once engaged, and harder still to find a way out…

I am concerned with a world that accepts killing a million innocent Iraqis and untold (10,000 and 13,000 ++) number of Afghanistan’s. I am concerned that we are seriously talking about entering another war in the Middle East. I am concerned that we seem to be unsatisfiable in our desire for blood-lust…

This is looking as bad as it can get and if the warmongers have their way then we will invade Libya and it looks like Obama is ready…

Is Barack Obama About To Order The U.S. Military To Invade Libya?:

As insane as it might sound, the United States may soon be getting involved in another war in the Middle East.  According to White House spokesman Jay Carney, “no options” have been taken off the table when it comes to the situation in Libya.  By saying that “all options” are being considered, that is basically a way for the Obama administration to threaten Gadhafi without actually coming right out and threatening him.  In recent days, news reports have been appearing all over the mainstream media hyping the possibility that we may have to take military action in Libya.  This would not be happening if the White House did not want it to happen.  The truth is that Barack Obama is apparently seriously considering U.S. military action in Libya.  At first that would probably consist of air strikes and missile attacks, but if the Obama administration decides that it is going to take ground forces to get the job done then we could eventually see the U.S. military actually invade Libya.  But the truth is that any military intervention in Libya would be a really, really bad idea.  Is it really wise to stick our young men and women into the middle of an incredibly bloody civil war?  Do we want to spill even more American blood in order to protect “U.S. interests”?  Do we really want to spend young American lives to keep the price of oil low?  The truth is that the world hates us enough already.  How much more will they hate us if we decide to start bombing Libya into oblivion?

I remember getting scolded because one time I called Obama a war monger. I have been scolded because I feel that we should stay out of this type of situations. I have been scolded because I say that these situations are caused by our stupidity in the first place. The Western world has very scary tendencies. We seem to love war. From the president on down…

I am concerned that in the last few weeks we have killed two hundred or more civilians in Afghanistan and the world could care less: KABUL – More than 200 Afghans were killed in attacks and military operations during the past two weeks, Afghan officials said Saturday, calling it the deadliest period for civilians since the war began… (Read More >>>)

Where are the countries threatening to invade America because America is killing civilians in Afghanistan. By the thousands. Why is it OK for America to decimate Afghanistan for no reason? Why was it OK to decimate Iraq for no reason? (Yes, no reason!)

So are we really any better than Muammar Gaddafi? Why do we accept killing of thousands as OK in one area and then not OK in another area? Why is any death acceptable? Why do we care if Libya has a civil war? Oil…

Sveta said something to me that made sense. She said that it counts on who does the killing. If it is a powerful country killing, then that is OK. It is also OK when the little country has the backing of a powerful country. It is OK when instigated by a powerful country. Other words it is all in who you know and who you are and who likes who at that moment… (Iraq is a perfect example.)

Time to go with these words of parting from Chavez of Venezuela:

“The United States has already said it’s ready to invade Libya, don’t you see? And almost all the countries of Europe are condemning Libya … What do they want. They are rubbing their hands together. Oil is what’s important to them,” he said. 🙂
