Watch The Humanitarian War. Curveball strikes again. It’s the same damned playbook.
“Responsibility 2 Protect” is the witty handmaiden of imperial power, and it’s easy for liberals to text.
Gaddafi got in the way of Empire! Gaddafi wanted an African Union, independent banking. We wanted AFRICOM (and light, sweet crude). Bang, bang. You’re dead. “We came, we saw, he died. Ha, ha.” Easy peasy, lemon squeezy, R2P is slick and sleazy. Most liberals not only fell for it, they continue claiming bragging rights! Don’t tell that to Obama supporters, unless you want to be labeled a purity troll and hear inept comparisons to taking out Dillinger. That’s how these hypo-criticals roll.
When the media claimed Gaddafi was handing out boner pills so his soldiers could rape more effectively, you had to be an idiot not to still smell the bullshit from the Iraqi incubator story.
This is not a momentary lapse of reason, but simple alternation, resulting in a continuous lapse of reason: conduct wars that liberals like, then conduct wars conservatives like, and so on. Vilification of the victims is “a cakewalk” with threshold public support.
Now a majority of Americans want to go to war with Iran, if they try to get nukes, which I’m certain we will assure ourselves is true, despite any lack of evidence. We have informants we trust in MEK. Ask Howard Dean! Yee-argh!
I’m looking forward to the shoot-out in the bathtub. I’ve never seen modern, nuclear-powered aircraft carriers sink. Besides, killing a million (more) Iranians, a massive land war in Asia, sky-rocketing oil prices, and some heavy duty military spending are just what we need to get this economy rolling (faster, downhill, backwards, with no brakes).
Maybe the commies have us in their mind rays, and are just paying us back for their collapse. Nah, we’re just that stupid.
Libya is fucked up, just like Iraq.
