The Tunisian President Ben Ali and Mubarak of Egypt will be very surprised at the way in which they were shown the door by their American master but the main objective was Libya and Syria, not Tunisia and Egypt: regime change in the latter two States were to serve as a justification for those in Libya and Syria. They were, that is, the forerunners.

Again, as in the past, the facts followed the protocols of regime-change prepared by Gene Sharp and his associates: street demonstrations, provocation, days of rage, events on social networks, fierce stigma of government responses.

The news that Western newspapers and television reported about the atrocities attributed to Gaddafi in suppressing the revolt were for the benefit of Western audiences. The Libyans soon discovered the truth: Gaddafi didn't bomb Benghazi with the air force in retaliation for the riots, causing twenty thousand deaths in one day. The satellite photos provided to the UN by Russians proved it, showing the absence of craters, but in vain. Nor is it true that stimulant and aphrodisiac drugs were administered to the loyalist troops and that under the effect of those drugs mass rapes and other atrocities against the uprising people were then carried out.

The Libyan government was initially taken aback by the riots, insurrections and by a number of defections in the armed forces, especially in Cyrenaica. It was also forced to withdraw from some of its positions, but it never lost completely the control on the territory. Although some people detested Gaddafi, the majority of the Libyan people loved him and Libyans were still willing to support him. There is, indeed, a profound difference between hating a government to the point of an armed revolt against it, and belief that the time has come to turn the page, passing the baton to a new leadership.

A few insurgents do not make a revolution. Especially if they were hens scratching between jailbirds, disgruntled various types and foreigners. The militias who fought against the army were composed by Libyans but also and especially by foreigners, coming from the most disparate parts: Saudis, Qataris, Chechens, Jordanians and anyone else who was willing to fight for money or for love of war, holy or secular as it was.

This jumble of people and international pressure should have to be enough, according to plan, to force Gaddafi to escape and destroy his power system. Aerial bombardment? Maybe, but limited. Milosevic gave it up after two months and Libya is basically a desert.

The situation began, however, to change rapidly in favor of the government forces and among the Westerners began to spread the fear that their plan could fail, with all the consequences. It was proposed the creation of a no-fly zone that would have forced Gaddafi's air force to remain on the ground. For humanitarian purposes, of course. The resolution of the conflict would thus achieved only with clashes between opposing infantry forces.

Russia also agreed, in an excess of kindness and trust towards the Americans. And the March 19, 2011 resolution number 1973 was approved by the UN. A huge mistake for Russian diplomacy: NATO planes were not limited to fly in Libyan skies, forcing down those government aircraft, but took an active part in the fighting, taking the side of the rebels and taking them to victory.
Lybia has oil, crude light special oil, Syria does not.

So Obama attacked Libya for the same reason he falsely accuser Bush, OIL.

See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites.

My reasons might be,

Good service
Good food
relaxing atmosphere
Good location

Good wine selection

You would run screaming thru the streets " OMG OMG OMG RealDave picks his restaurants based on how much wine he can drink. OMG OMG OMG"

The headline implied 40,000 quit the union because of Obamacare.

That is a lie. They are still in a union & Obamacare was not the primary reason.
Fact: Union bosses admit they were typically wrong as all Liberals are about Obamacare!

Union thugs even admit Conservative predictions were correct as always!

Union Liberals still proud of beating up black seller in the street for selling American flags!!!

Short site of vision is obscuring what lays ahead, if this chemical attack goes without reprimand.
Allowing Syria to ignore their obligations to humanity by using,“out of prohibition.” lethal chemical weaponry, without reprimand, will send a negative message. Perforation of chemical aggression would be entertained by less than scrupulous organizations will arise and increase. A limited demonstration to suppress the use of chemical weapons is required.
Obama has demonstrated his ethical responsibilities in answering to conflicting issues of violence by corrupted organizations. Some accuse Obama of some tyrannical conspiracy and yet the facts do not support their accusations.
Yes I see a pattern; Is it conspiracy?
Capture of Osama without archaic torture tactics.{Mathematical algorithms} No invasion of Pakistan with hundreds of $Billions for the military industrialist.
Libya’s war, without one American solider dying in its entire operation and objective. Completed within months.
Obtains a water downed Health Care system for our nation in spite of the most dysfunctional congress in our nations history.
Returned economic stability in record time, from the brink of the abysses of a Great Depression. Faster economic recovery, than Clinton, Reagan and F.D.R.
Seeking to expand our ruined higher education of which we are no longer the “best in the world”.
I have a dream that some day our nation will discover the benefits of Universal Education. Some Western Industrious Nations have, for years, proven its necessity and its benefits generating returns to their industrious nation for increase progress.
Since when Kumbaya Liberal live war?

>> Since Bush left office!

See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites.

If it wee Bush they would be calling him a war criminal.

I predict this: when Obama kill several innocent children and women in Syria it will be applauded by Liberals are collateral damage.

You will see!!!

Conservative republican senators have been, for the past 2 years, structuring their infrastructure to guard against a repeat of the embarrassing defeat of 2012 due to Tea ideologies. Unable to gain the seats to hold the Senate.
Senator Lindsey Graham of S.C. will need to win two votes by the voters to hold his seat. 1} against the {R} Tea candidates 2} against the democratic candidate.
A growing number of {R} candidates will be facing the same gauntlet as Lindsey. Moderate and traditionalist {R’s} will seek to persuade the voters not to vote for the extremist fanatics of their right wing. Tea Senators are under attack with conservative and traditionalist {R’s} seeking to dispel them from their party.
Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky {R-TEA} is presently sinking from his perch. Veteran senator Lamar Alexander of Tenn.{R-conservative} Is assailed by Ben Cunningham, president of the Nashville Tea Party.
Fissures and rifts will be illuminated within the republican party with their primaries results.
Have they learned their lesson and will they now cast out the Tea? Will they continue to lose more seats due to the taint of Tea? 2014 will expose their future outcomes and their ability to exhibit leadership. Dysfunctional Tea fanatics to over take the conservative only to lose in the general elections of 2016. Republicans future is at a cross road. Failure of the conservative {R} will result in the demise of their party for Decades to come.
Continued infighting within the {R’s} over core issues {Immigration and Financials} would continue to widen a chasm, splitting the party.
One example of the Tea was recently demonstrated in South Dakota and West Virginia where their candidates failed to expand their powers.
Senator McConnell realizes the dangers of his purity ideologies is failing and begins to back pedal. He once opposed Rand Paul’s austere budget measures he now proudly endorses his austerity measures and goes on to support Rand’s domestic Hemp production endeavors! Yet he voted against the violence against women bill and joined the 13 senators to vote against aid to Egypt.
State senator Lee Bright {R-Tea} S.C. Emphasizes that the traditional conservative republican, Mr. Graham, was too concerned with international affaires and too soft on gun rights, personal liberties and immigration. He declares he is doesn’t care if N.S.A. has his phone number, he will continue to fight for South Carolina to have its own currency and opposes Shariah law!
Mr. Bright could pose a problem for Lindsey Graham in his bid for reelection. After all it is South Carolina. Remember when; Lindsey was booed at the “Silver Elephant dinner” in 2006 and then gets a standing ovation in 2013? Such are the ways of South Carolina..
All in all this should be an interesting mid term election in 2014. Preliminary to the 2016 general elections.
Will the republicans have the leadership to govern their own party? They fail that, what chance do they have on the national governing levels? Slim to none..
2010 Mid term election Shellacking thanks to the powerful and effective Tea Party!!!

Liberals want to rewrite history and forget their SHELLACKING!!!
