Let allah Sort It Out: US Should Stay Out of Libya

By Debbie Schlussel

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.

I told my wife to get me a pair of pajamas like that for Fathers Day. Kinda of Elvis Presley-meets-Liberace, yet cool.

I agree. If the opposition to Qaddafi was really democratic, it might be worth supporting them but when they are really Islamists, no thanks. Personally, if it was up to me, I’d give both sides weapons and let their blood-letting go on forever. Better them than us. And Libya is a cause for which we shouldn’t waste US resources, lives and dollars.

Let Allah sort it out, indeed.

NormanF on March 8, 2011 at 1:46 pm

I see no reason to interfere with Libya. Iraq and Afghanistan have shown us that any and all efforts by the United States to bring civility to a Muslim state will be resented.

I said this after we toppled Saddam Hussein and I’ll say it again: If the Arabs are so game to have their civil war, let ‘em have it. After they’ve culled the population by about 20% or so, then we can send in the troops, mop up what little is left, and plunder the oil.

We don’t need petroleum based fuel to run our cars anymore. Technology allows us to use any combination of methanol (currently $0.60/gal), ethanol or gasoline in flex fuel vehicles. It adds $100 to the price of a car.

If the best government money can buy would only mandate flex fuel vehicles, we wouldn’t be worried about petroleum supply. FYI, both Sens. O’Bama and McCain promised to push for a flex fuel vehicle mandate during the election but have done nothing about it since.

There is NO Santa Claus on March 8, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    Sorry Santa Claus, but there is not enough corn in America to fuel all of our cars via ethanol or methanol. In fact, the ethanol subsidies should end. It is environmentally and economically ridiculous.

    Open all off shore land to drilling, open up parts of Alaska for drilling, and use natural gas to run some of our cars. Begin to convert coal to gasoline and diesel, like the Germans did during WWII.Let others do the fighting; we can do the drilling.

    Incidentally, most of imported oil comes from Canada, Mexico, Nigeria, Venezuela (not much anymore), and a couple of other non-Arab countries. When we fought in Iraq, China got the lion’s share of the mineral rights, including oil. Same thing in Afghanistan.

    Jonathan Grant on March 8, 2011 at 2:11 pm

Another point, Deb: WE ARE BROKE!!! We can’t afford to get involved in every squabble around the world. Hell, WE DON’T EVEN DEFEND OUR OWN BORDERS, THE EXCUSE BEING THAT WE DON’T HAVE THE MONEY.

If we don’t have the money to defend our borders, why do we have troops overseas?

Additionally, why should American boys die in a fight that is not ours? Let the old men and women and the chicken hawks in Congress and the White House serve on the front lines.

Obama is on the side of the Islamic Brotherhood, who will unite all of the new Islamic governments against the West, and who will tell the Islamic sleeper cells in America to start bombing. There is a master plan, spelled out by Al Queda.

Our strategic interests are getting the economy back in shape and eliminating, not just reducing, both the deficit and the debt, and kicking illegal Muslims out of America, before they strike again.

Jonathan Grant on March 8, 2011 at 2:06 pm

    Jonathan:

    You don’t know what you’re talking about. Methanol isn’t made from corn. Methanol is wood alcohol. It can be made from almost any biomass whatsoever including urban trash. Methanol can be made from coal. The easiest way to make methanol is from natural gas, but you’d rather stick us with two fuel tanks instead of one. In the mean time, methanol sells for $0.60/gallon while you pay Saudi Arabia’s partners $3.50+

    Math doesn’t seem to be one of your strong points.

    There may not be enough corn in America to grow all the ethanol we need, but that’s a good thing. It opens up the US fuel market to poor tropical countries where they can grow sugar cane and make fuel for American cars. Imagine what would happen if OPEC’s hoarded wealth were suddenly spread out across the world.

    Brazil has already demonstrated how ethanol and a few off-shore oil strikes can make a large country petroleum independent. You would rather spread the Saudi petrochemical lobby’s myths that we can’t displace petroleum with alcohol fuels. Whose side are you on, anyway! :+(

    It doesn’t matter WHERE the oil comes from. It’s a commodity. If America finds more, the Saudis pump less, the world supply stays the same and prices keep going up with the expanding world economy. In fact, Saudi-led OPEC is pumping exactly as much oil today as they were 30 years ago in spite of the world economy quadrupling in size.

    There is NO Santa Claus on March 8, 2011 at 2:45 pm

Libya is like Germany in early 1900′s, instead of the German Communists vs. the German Fascists you have the Muslim Socialists/Communists vs the Muslim Caliphateist. Either way, there is going to be hell to pay down the road.

Oil hits $220/bbl, Obama et.al. will have his “nudge” to force everyone into using “green” technology.

The major oil companies will be able to drill for oil in the Marianas Trench and make a profit on it once oil hits $200/bbl.

Meanwhile Obama’s civilian security force will be patrolling the streets looking for “green” violations.

Mission accomplished!

Never let a crisis go to waste!

“I see no reason to interfere with Libya. Iraq and Afghanistan have shown us that any and all efforts by the United States to bring civility to a Muslim state will be resented.”

So what if the U.S. is resented? Consider Israel. It’s fundamental impact upon the Arabs is a civilizing one: without the IDF, the Arabs would be free to act on their worst impulses and slaughter every Jew they could find and thus becoming collectively guilty of the barbaric crime of genocide. Israel prevents that and is resented for it. That still makes the defense of Israel both a good deed and a worthy one from the point of view of the United States.

Solomon2 on March 8, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    Solomon2:

    The Jewish State has a compelling reason to defend itself from the Arabs that surround it. The U.S. is not surrounded by Arabs and have no compelling reason to militarily interfere in yet another civil war in Africa.

    The Algerian civil war raged for TEN YEARS and nobody ranted and raved that America should interfere. This went on in spite of the fact that Algeria is an OPEC member nation. Moreover, in Algeria, the rebels were well known to be Islamists. OVER ONE HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND PEOPLE DIED.

    The “Israel does it and therefor so should we” argument doesn’t even come close to justifying a US military intervention in Libya. All the while the “Al-Aksa Intifada” took front page room for every hang nail inflicted upon a Palestinian Arab, hundreds were dying every day in Algeria without a whimper. Life went on and hardly anybody (except me) noticed.

Staying out totally is the second best move to make.

The move we should be making is supporting both sides like we did in the Iran Iraq war.

I_AM_ME on March 8, 2011 at 3:37 pm

    Just what I promised.

    Its not in our interests to allow either side to win. A drawn out conflict will weaken them both.

    That is exactly the ideal outcome. And if they’re invested in slaughtering each other, they won’t be around to slaughter us.

    We should encourage the Saudis to arm the rebels and let the Russians and Chinese arm Qaddafi and let them have at it.

    I see it going on forever – the instability in the Arab World could actually be to our benefit.

    NormanF on March 8, 2011 at 4:54 pm

      NormanF:

      I disagree. I support Debbie’s policy. Let’s stay out of this one.

      I’ve made several comments explaining my own reasons for supporting her policy.

      I know you mean well, but this isn’t our fight.

      There is NO Santa Claus on March 8, 2011 at 7:38 pm

    I_AM_ME:

    In case you hadn’t noticed, we made no friends or influenced people by supporting both sides in the Iran-Iraq war. Rather, we hastened the development of WMDs by both sides.

    If Gadhafi weren’t such a cult hero of the left, nobody would even notice what’s going on in Libya. Civil war raged in neighboring Algeria for over 10 years without hardly a whimper from the press or the U.S. State Department.

    Leave the Libyans alone! That’s what Debbie is saying and I support her policy.

    There is NO Santa Claus on March 8, 2011 at 7:34 pm

Debbie, you fail to note the most outrageous move out of Washington – the initiative to get SAUDI ARABIA to provide weapons (most of it American) to the rebels. I guess Obama wants to keep his hands clean. Seriously, did they learn NOTHING from our experience arming the Taliban?

One sees a lot of “projection” coming from the Western media who only see people “fighting for their freedom” when the truth is those they’re shilling for have little experience with true freedom or Western values. What’s really going on is a struggle for power between different tribal camps. Alien vs. Predator indeed. It’s too bad we can’t put the whole region under quarantine.

Raymond in DC on March 8, 2011 at 3:56 pm

Debbie, you said; “…here’s a tip for McCain and McConnell: these Muslims on the streets of Benghazi and Zawiya are not our friends.” You are SO correct. I just can’t understand why people just don’t get it. This truly is a clash of civilizations. It truly is a holy war. Islamists are on a crusade to subdue and or annihilate infidels. The crap going on in the muslim world isn’t a democratic revolution. It’s a power grab by jihadists, nothing more.

Rocky on March 8, 2011 at 4:36 pm

Rocky, well said, that’s exactly what happening.

If it was really about freedom and democracy, you’d have the Islamists and terrorists opposed to what’s going on but they like what they see.

Democracy in the Middle East under present conditions will end up in a disaster for Israel and the West. And many people don’t want to see it. They want to pretend everything will turn out alright.

It won’t.

NormanF on March 8, 2011 at 4:46 pm

You all missed another joke.
Prologue:
Turkey proposed EU to intervene in Libya, and that they would join, and that for their involvement they should be granted admission to EU without delays or terms.
Now, the joke incarnated:
Obama likes the idea, and demanded from EU officials to do it!

There were some news that Sarkozy told Obama that it is not his business. It was also said that choice of words Sarkozy used was quite harsh.
Many people here still remember that Erdogan promised every muslim a Turkey citizenship when Turkey joins EU.

It is not the first time when US officials want to decide which country should join EU or not, and on what terms.
What a hell is going on with politicians in US?
Are they bored already with US southern borders open wide??

Can’t we drop bombs on BOTH sides? If they’re nukes, it may counter Global warming:).

Occam's Tool on March 8, 2011 at 6:23 pm

Weeks ago everyone acted like Qaddifi’s end was a sure deal, army members were defecting…and now…oh, they need help.

No. We’ve seen the gratitude of the muslim world for our aide in the past. If you feed a scorpion and think it still won’t sting you later then you are a fool.

Qaddifi Duck on March 8, 2011 at 6:53 pm

I think the US should stay out of Libya. I doubt our “intelligence” is good enough to even know who the rebels are. I also don’t think we need to get involved in another muslim country until our leaders really understand that Islam sucks. Until they understand that our leaders will always pander to it. Lastly, I don’t think we have done such a great job in either Iraq or Afghanistan. How can we change the culture in muslim countries if critical comments on Islam are not allowed. I think the main reason muslim countries are undesirable places to live is because Islam is the prevailing philosophy there.

Lady in Northern Virginia on March 8, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    Lady in Northern Virginia:

    I agree. I don’t think you’ll be particularly successful convincing the local that “muslim countries are undesirable places to live is because Islam is the prevailing philosophy there”, but your comments regarding Iraq and Afghanistan are spot on. Whatever we do to help either side will be resented.

    Let them settle this on their own. Algeria settled their civil war and they’re still shipping liquified natural gas (LNG) to the US. Life will go on with or without Col. Gadhafi ruling Libya.

The K-Man is the legitimate dictator of Lib-Ya. Bet you never heard of that concept before!

Now, as to the oil situation, not to worry. Obama is working on converting the USA to be energy independent. Soon we will have solar panels, windmills, electric cars, LED lightbulbs, high speed electric trains, and all ride bicycles to work. Right after that, will come the flying car. “In the year 2525, if man is still alive…”

While I do think we do not need to sacrifice or risk a single American life dealing with the Libya fighting, I do think it is high time that Qadaffy Duck got a cruise missile parked up his a$$, especially so when so much evidence points to him directly ordering the Lockerbie 747 bombing.

I have no problems with spending the money on some hardware to smoke him into particulate matter.

Of course, it would take a leader with an actual backbone to do that so we all know this wont happen.

Kook elimination time on March 9, 2011 at 10:31 am

Debbie, Richard Perle gives the opposite argument:

http://pajamasmedia.com/tatler/2011/03/08/losing-libya/
Losing Libya

It will be a miracle if the opposition to Qaddafi, armed only with a small supply of weapons seized from government arsenals, is able to withstand heavily armed attacks on the positions it now holds. While the administration dithers, and debate swirls around “no fly zones,” there is an urgent, immediate need to get anti-tank and anti-air weapons into the hands of those rebels who would free Libya–and not turn it over to Islamist radicals. If we don’t assist the rebels, Iran and other Islamists will, with disastrous consequences. (They are probably there already). We helped the Mujahideen defeat the Soviets in Afghanistan, but we allowed the Pakistanis and the Saudis to decide who would be armed. Of course they armed the Islamist groups they wished to promote–and we got the Taliban. Now the administration is said to be debating whether to ask the Saudis to send weapons to the rebels–because we don’t have the courage it do it ourselves. Guess who will wind up running Libya?

I support the maintenance of a sufficient military to defend the United States against aggression. The U.S. should abandon its attempts to act as policeman for the world. When are we going to learn this simple lesson?

Bonzer Wolf on March 9, 2011 at 12:01 pm

Do I give the peoples of the Mid-East too much credit? I think that the example of self-governance we set up in Iraq and Afghanistan (though working poorly) gives the populations of the other countries a desire to throw off their chains, whether it’s Egypt, Libya or (dare I say it?) Saudi Arabia.
They may be asking themselves, “Here in the 21st century, why are we governed by despots like this is still the 4th century?”

Doug on March 9, 2011 at 12:40 pm

I agree, let Allah sort them out. We need to stay out of it. I am surprised also to see Repubs talking about no fly zones all last week. Let it alone and bring our troops home ASAP from Iraq and Afghanistan. Time to stop the nation building and secure our borders.

CJ on March 9, 2011 at 1:29 pm

It’s Aliens vs. Predator. Better to watch, then get involved. People need to remember we are not a country that stands for Democracy. Just because Libyians want Democracy doesn’t make them like us. We are a country that stands for Liberty and Freedom. We beleive that all men and women are creted equal, they don’t. We believe freedom of religion and the right to personally profit from the fruits of our own labor. Not to mention free speech and gun ownership. Freedom is from tyranny. This is not what they fight for, so why pick a side? Their verison of a democracy is 3 wolves and sheep voting on what’s for dinner. You’d hope people were smarter than that.

Debbie is right on this one. Or, another positive approach would be to aid both factions in Libya, ensuring nobody is deprived of firepower. Then crack open the package of popcorn.

biorabbi on March 9, 2011 at 7:50 pm

It is ridiculous to interfere in conflicts in which the regime’s opposition is even more odious than the regime itself. Are Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Taliban in any way preferable to their predecessors? Is a corrupt tyrant truly worse than a genocidal true believer seeking a new caliphate? Is is amazing how our supposedly educated elites treat the Middle East as if it were Eastern Europe in the 1980′s, even though culturally and politically there is no resemblance whatsoever.

worry01 on March 9, 2011 at 11:13 pm

Last week conservatives were ridiculing Hillary Clinton’s call for a no-fly zone. This week it seems that they’ve gotten the approved talking points from RNC central. Our involvement only gives Obama another opportunity to get in front of a camera and bark orders at a foreign despot. He’ll spin this as “spreading democracy” w/o having to fire a shot because of the respect he claims the world has for him.

CornCoLeo on March 9, 2011 at 11:15 pm

When I see two large dogs fighting in a park I don’t run over and try to break them up. I let them fight on. If anyone tries to break up the fight you could have either one of them or both dogs turn on that person. It’s best to just let them fight it out.
I feel the same way about Libya and I felt the same way about Egypt.
The only country where I think we could have been of some help was in Iran. Anything is better than the current situation in Iran.

Kim Bruce on March 10, 2011 at 8:55 am

The only thing the West should be doing – if anything @ all – is to ensure that no side gets the upper hand on the other. I’m not exactly shedding any tears over Mubarak’s departure – a regime that had a TV serial based on the ‘Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ doesn’t deserve our sympathies, much less support. I’d say that when Muslims fight other Muslims, it’s an Alien vs Predator situation, and the only thing we should be doing is filling the popcorn (I prefer chips). The only interfarence we should do, if any, should be to ensure that the fighting is fueled for good, and has no end in sight.

Any of you who are old enough to remember – did you think the Iran-Iraq war was a good thing or bad? How about the proxy war waged b/w Nasser’s Egypt & Saudi Arabia in Yemen in the 60s? I’d say that if there is a Shia revolt against the rulers of Bahrein, all power to them. Similarly, I wouldn’t automatically take the side of the Sauds if the Shia of al Hasa province revolt against them: all I’d want is there to be a stalemate.

Oh, and in Iran, I’d love it if all the non-’Persian’ groups – the Arabs, Azeris, Kurds and Baluchis chose to revolt, and plunge them into civil war. I like the situation in Pakistan, where you have Pathans fighting the Panjabi establishment. And let Western troops leave Afghanistan – you won’t see Iran then send arms to the Taliban: they’d much sooner arm the Hazaras and Tajiks against them.

Anybody I left out?

Infidel Pride on March 10, 2011 at 10:18 am

This is an excerpt from the site of the Libyan Transitional Council, the government selected by the Libyan people, which Ms. Schlussel is claiming is “Not our friends,” and “Islamic extremists,”

“The Council also notes that it will honour and respect all international and regional agreements…emphasizing its aspirations in seeing Libya play a significant role in the establishing international peace and security.”

Wow, peace and security? Very scary!

“The aim of the Transitional National Council is to steer Libya during the interim period that will come after its complete liberation… to free elections and the establishment of a constitution for Libya.”

Free elections and democracy? How un-American! How dare they want to rid themselves of a tyrant oppressor and develop their own Constitution? We should subjugate them and enslave them!

“We request from the international community to fulfil its obligations to protect the Libyan people from any further genocide and crimes against humanity without any direct military intervention on Libyan soil”

They want the international community to protect them, but without military intervention on Libyan soil. How expensive! So, you mean that this is nothing like Iraq, or Afghanistan? Do you mean to say that they request not a single American soldier land on a Libyan beach? How demanding!

Liberty. Equality. Brotherhood.
Life. Liberty. Pursuit of Happiness.

We should not get involved! Period! Majority of Americans are opposed and what does Washington do? Another decision not supported by the majority of people. Is this the way a democratic government operates? Exactly! We have radio talk show hosts and tv news priming the public to get their viewpoints to be accepted. How? By constantly brainwashing the public. It is not just the GOP. The Democrats are just as guilty. We need to bring all our troops out of harms way. Afghanistan is a disaster. How long have we been there. Longer than Vietnam. It is time to stop the insanity.
