Is it just me, or are you also sick and tired of hearing the vast majority of Republican leaders and so-called conservative commentators whining for Barack Obama to impose a no-fly zone over Libya and take a stand against Muammar Qaddafi/Ghadaffi (and a gazillion other Arabic-to-English transliteral spellings)? Sorry, but we have no business taking the same side as the HAMAS-niks of the CAIR Action Network, who want us to do this. Yup, dumbasses like Sean Hannity, John McCain, and Mitch McConnell–all of whose shrill, partisan whining for military action on Libya–are on the same side as CAIR Action Network, HAMAS, Al-Qaeda, and a million other fundamentalist Shi’ite fanatics.
Only Morons Want a New Islamic Devil We Don’t Know Instead of . . .
. . . The Devil We Know & Have a Treaty With: Muammar “RuPaul” Qaddafi
I despise Qaddafi as much as anyone, since he bombed Marines at a German disco and initiated the Pan Am 103 bombing over Lockerbie Scotland (an operation which was taken over by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command). And I’ve attacked him ad nauseam on this site and elsewhere over the decades. But if you think he’s worse than the extremists who will surely replace him, you’re a moron and simply know absolutely zero about the Middle East and the Islamic world. In every single place–including Iraq–where we’ve gotten involved and urged “democratic elections” and the toppling of dictators, it’s been a disaster. Every single place: Iran, Gaza, Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq. And if you like those, you’ll love a post-Qaddafi Libya. That’s why the CAIR Action Network and HAMAS folks love it. Why can’t we take that giant hint?
If you like nearly $4 a gallon gas now, you’ll love the $8 plus it could get to, if we allow extremists to democratically take over the Muslim world.
If we had only backed Hosni Mubarak and allowed him to bomb the heck out of Tahrir Square (or otherwise quell the extremist Egyptian masses) . . ., if we had only backed Qaddafi and allowed him to do the same with his radicals on the streets (more than he’s doing now), we wouldn’t see this instability throughout the Mid-East. We will suffer the ripples of this Arab Street “democracy” BS forever after.
The great thing about OPEC was that the member countries always made deals to limit production, but then–typical of Arabs and the Arab world, which dominates OPEC–they never kept their deals and all cheated on each other. Believe me, when all of these extremist HAMAS-niks take over each of these countries and gather for some halal shawarmeh and oil talk at future OPEC meetings, they are more likely to actually cooperate on limiting the oil and driving the price up even more . . . and that’s if they even sell it to us, rather than demanding we make all kinds of concessions for oil, such as dumping our friend Israel or allowing Muslims special rights in the West beyond what they’ve already managed to squeeze out of us. It won’t be pretty. It’ll be apocalyptic, and not in a good way.
And that’s in addition to the fact that we made a successful treaty with Qaddafi and got him to give up his chemical weapons and nukes. It’s a treaty I repeatedly opposed on this site (see also here), but we made our bed, and we must sleep in it. It will be a lesson to all leaders across the globe that if the U.S. makes treaties with them, it ain’t even worth crap, just a few years later (kinda like all treaties the Muslim world makes). Ask yourself, do you want our crazy dictator whom we know and can predict . . . or their crazy Islamic extremist junta whom we know from the other heads of the same hydra–the 9/11 hijackers, HAMAS, etc. and who will seize the oil wells and charge us an arm and a leg . . . and some American arms and legs? Even if the Saudis pump millions of extra barrells of oil, it won’t make a difference because Libyan crude is a special kind highly preferable and usable versus the low-grade Saudi version. It won’t help offset the price much.
So, when I see headlines like the one atop yesterday’s Wall Street Journal front page–“GOP Prods Obama on Libya: McCain, McConnell Urge Direct Aid to Rebels as Gadhafi Presses Counterattacks”–I think: YOU MORONS! I also keep thinking of Israeli conservative Moshe Arens’ terrific and eternally applicable quote: this is the Mid-EAST, NOT the Mid-West. Uh, here’s a tip for McCain and McConnell: these Muslims on the streets of Benghazi and Zawiya are not our friends. They aren’t the Nicaraguan Contras–the Freedom Fighters. They are extremists who want sharia and an Islamic caliphate far worse than the devil we already know, Muammar of Unsartorial Splendor. They’re far worse. They believe that allah wants us to suffer. They will never appreciate our help, as these morons in the West believe. They will only hate us and resent us they way they do in Iraq, Egypt, and everywhere else. And to them and Sean Hannity and the rest of the moronic conservatives who want to waste U.S. dollars, lives, and weaponry for these people, I say . . .
Let’s stay far away from Libya. Let allah sort it out.
