With Ghaddafi Crossed Off of Obama’s Hit List, Who’s Next in Line?
Aw, come on now, I know you were all asking yourselves that very same question earlier today:
Gadhafi dead, who’s next on Obama’s hit list?
In what might be called the Obama Doctrine, but won’t be because it isn’t one and we were leading from behind anyway, the nation’s top community organizer has helped NATO reorganize another bad guy from the world scene.
Thirty-one weeks after Nobel Peace Prize winner Obama promised that the Libyan military operation would last “days not weeks,” Muammar Gadhafi is dead, along with hundreds of fighters and civilians on both sides. The dictator lasted through 42 years of international insoucance, ever since Obama was a sixth grader.
But near the beginning of the Arab Spring earlier this year Gadhafi made the threat that he was going to kill every opponent in sight in his country’s then new rebellion.
On the way to South America with his extended family, Obama appointed himself caretaker, said the mere threat of such slaughter made it in the United States’ national interest to prevent such a humanitarian disaster.
He joined allies attacking the regime’s military installations and gear to give the ragtag rebellion a chance. And much later he got around to telling Congress he’d launched military operations that, despite all the explosions and deaths, he wasn’t calling a war.
Nevermind that countless other black-hat regimes around the world have already gone way beyond threatening to kill large numbers of their civlians. Can you say Syria? Sudan? North Korea? Iran? The Obama administration instead invited Iran’s diplomats to U.S. embassy July 4th parties around the world. That kind of outreach has not worked as well as Tomahawks.
Today, in brief Rose Garden remarks Obama could not resist spiking the ball. “The dark shadow of tyranny has been lifted,” he said.
“This comes at a time when we see the strength of American leadership across the world. We’ve taken out al Qaeda leaders, and we’ve put them on the path to defeat. We’re winding down the war in Iraq and have begun a transition in Afghanistan. And now, working in Libya with friends and allies, we’ve demonstrated what collective action can achieve in the 21st century.”
Notice, no mention of victory in Afghanistan, now the nation’s longest war ever.
It sounds good to say the results of the Arab Spring are more promising in some places for some people. As for American interests in, say, Egypt, it hasn’t turned out too well yet. Not to mention the negative impact on ally Israel.
Obama’s hit list grows — he got Osama bin Laden, of course, other terror chieftains and most recently that American mullah, Anwar al-Awlaki, in Yemen.
Its longtime power center terminated with prejudice, Libya will now be the next laboratory for the forces of freedom and fundamentalism to struggle for control.
With Libya wound down, Obama has just dispatched “about 100” combat-ready “advisors” (let’s see, that makes at least 200 boots on the ground) into central Africa to help eliminate the Lord’s Resistance Army, a rapacious rebel force most Americans have never heard of. And to facilitate the whacking of its evil leader, Joseph Kony.
President Obama has determined it’s in American interests for some reason and Kony’s next.
Followed by a war with Iran if Obama thinks he needs it to get reelected…Explore posts in the same categories: Obama Sucks, politics
