Told Ya So! I Warned Long Ago About “Springtime” Libya (Hannity Urged Obama to Aid Rebels, Now Pretends Otherwise)
While I was away for the last of the Jewish holidays, Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi was summarily executed (after apparently being beaten and tortured) by our new “democrats,” the murderous Muslim sharia thugs and barbarians our nation and NATO embraced as “freedom fighters.” Congrats. The non-existent moongod, allah, is smiling. Told ya so. I warned against this at the beginning, back in March, on this site. I also noted that the only–yes, the ONLY–foreign policy success of the Bush administration, our detente with Qaddafi, would be destroyed. And I was right. It was the ONLY good dividend of Bush’s Iraq war. But, make no mistake, while Obama is the idiot who implemented this Muslim “Springtime Libya,” Bush is the father of it, with his eight years of speeches about Arab world democracy and an Iraq war to bring this “democracy” to Iran-backed Shi’ites in Iraq.
And now the media is shocked–shocked!–that the Muslims who tortured, sodomized, and summarily executed their former leader, are as barbaric or worse than he was and even more Islamically fundamentalist with their predictable announcement–courtesy of Libyan National Transitional Council Chairman Mustafa Abdul Jalil, that Islamic law would be the new law of the land. And–surprise!–nearby Tunisia just elected the Islamist party. Hmmm . . . where are all the conservatives who moronically lectured me during eight years of Bush speeches about Arab democracy that I’m bigoted to say they can’t handle democracy and free elections? Where are you idiots? It’s the sound of crickets chirping.
Here’s a flashback quote from my March 8, 2011 post, “Let allah Sort It Out: US Should Stay Out of Libya”:
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 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. . . .
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?
Really, what world leader will ever trust us, help us, or make an agreement with us again when we do this? Bush forced Pervez Musharraf out and ushered in the more extreme Ali Asif Al-Zardari, who fosters Al-Qaeda and the Taliban. He took out the one block to Iran’s Shi’ite crescent, Sunni Saddam Hussein, and let the Shi’ites have free elections to vote in Iran-backed Shi’ites. (Now, conservatives whine about Obama pulling the troops out of Iraq, when Bush is the one who ushered Iran in and no matter how long we stayed that fact is now permanent.) Now, Obama succeeds in driving out American ally Mubarak from Egypt and American quasi-partner Qaddafi, with both being replaced ultimately by Islamic fundamentalists who hate us. Yes, Obama and Bush toppled Middle East stability and brought us this. (If you don’t think Bush was a part of this, you didn’t listen to his “Arab democracy” speeches for eight years and forgot about his war in Iraq.) I warned about this “Arab democracy” BS on this site (when Bush was crowing it) years ago and ever since.
I also showed you videos of these “liberal democrats” torturing Qaddafi soldiers and slicing them up alive in front of cheering Libyan townspeople, their fellow typical Muslim barbarians. What do you expect? They are Muslims and Arabs. It’s in the blood. Any indignant self-appointed peacenik who calls me “bigoted” or “racist” (what race is Islam?) is an idiot. They simply refuse to open their eyes, while shouting left-wing multi-cultural BS about how they are humans. These are the same people who attacked me–on the right, not just the left–for noting that Lara Logan met the real Muslims she was cheering when they gang-raped her in Tahrir square. These are the same guys over in Libya, with artificial, internationally imposed borders of a Greater Barbaria that is Arabia and the Islamic world.
Yes, I warned you back in March when we first started considering bombing Libya and then sent our drones and planes to bomb the country, that a post-Qaddafi Libya was a big mistake. I repeatedly noted there was no need for this, as I said then that we had a better-than-detente with Qaddafi. As I noted, he gave up his nuclear arms, allowed inspectors, and welcomed American oil companies in. I also warned that these “rebels” would probably restrict oil. And that, too, will come. They will not be welcoming of America’s oil companies, and even if they are, some estimates say it will be two years until the oil wells are pumping at full capacity again, as many were burned and destroyed during the war.
And while I warned against this, Republicans and conservatives, including John McCain, Lindsey Grahamnesty, Sean Hannity and Michelle Malkin Fraudkin cheered this on (now, they are lying and claiming they were the other way, just as Fraudkin did when she agreed with Al Sharpton that Don Imus would be fired, then did a 180 when she discovered those of us who really are conservative and believe in free speech were not on Sharpton’s side). Fraudkin even whined her typical, predictable, ignorant whine and faux-tears about the leftist American reporters who chose to go to Libya to cheer on the “rebels” and then were detained by Qaddafi. So sad, too bad. Hannity REPEATEDLY attacked Obama for not helping the rebels and called on him to do so, leading the right wing’s drumbeat in February and early March. Now, he claims he was against it. Whatta fraud.
Now, we are left with the aftermath of their cheering of the Obama decision to remove Qaddafi and fight on the side of these Al-Qaeda barbarians. Oh, and don’t forget Fouad Ajami, who portrays himself as a “moderate” Shi’ite Muslim, but who repeatedly cheered this on and continues to. He’s paid a ton of money as a “scholar” at the conservative Hoover Institution. If you are contributing to Hoover, you are funding his Muslim “Springtime Libya” BS fantasies which have been running in the Wall Street Journal and on radio and TV shows regularly.
All of these know-nothing “commentators,” who pretend to know something but know very little, were on the same side as HAMAS’ CAIR and the forces of evil. And now they are trying to do backflips and flip-flops pretending they were against this, when they should have known better earlier but are simply ignorant and without the intellect they pretend to possess. Not even close.
