No Wonder the US is Seen as a Joke! Gaddafi Is Laughing at Obama and Us!

How'd Bowing to Gaddafi Work Out for You Obama?
How'd Bowing to Gaddafi Work Out for You Obama?

Reuters Headline: 

“Obama breaks silence, condemns Libya crackdown”

Reuters reported that “President Barack Obama condemned the “outrageous” crackdown by Libyan security forces on protesters and said Washington would work with international partners to hold Muammar Gaddafi’s government accountable.

“The suffering and bloodshed is outrageous and it is unacceptable. So are threats and orders to shoot peaceful protesters,” Obama said in his first public comments on the violence in Libya.”

What Obama did not do:

  1. Condemn and hold Gaddafi Accountable for His Actions.  He did not even Condemn Gaddafi by name!!!

  2. Obama would not publicly back Sanctions against Gaddafi.

What did Reagan do under similar conditions?  He bombed Gaddafi’s compound and killed Gaddafi’s son.  You think that may have got this guys attention and maybe saved 1,000 or so lives in Libya?  Gaddafi is a ruthless thug and only understands power.  You can wax eloquently all day long and he won’t care. 

Obama also said that he had ordered his security team to prepare a full range of options to deal with this crisis!  Well good grief Barack, this has been going on for two weeks!  Who is on your security team?  The same people who prepared your immediate (2 week late) response to the BP Oil Spill?  Ya think maybe when Tunisia blew up in your face unexpectedly you might have ask YOUR SECURITY TEAM to maybe take a leap and see what may happen in the region in general.  Good thing you are not the one directing our troops on a day-to-day basis.

It will be too late when our media wakes up to the danger this President is to our national security and to our citizens around the globe.  This adolescent President is so far over his head it is difficult to fathom how an electorate could have collectively made this grave of a mistake.  Unfortunately the Community Organizer in Chief picked Joe Biden as his #2.  Unfortunately because poor Joe does not even know where he is most of the time much less where Libya is, he cannot serve as a buffer to Obama’s extreme ineptitude.

PS:  Tell Gaddafi we are still PO’d at him for Lockerbie and if we ever get a real president again we will seek our pound of flesh for those 270 souls that he murdered.

Beam me up Scotty!

  1. I cant help but wonder why well meaning American citizens will want their government to take up arms over another countries problem, may be the lives of innocent women and children your then president bush killed in Iraq is not enough for u guys, who do you think you are ‘GOD’. I actually think you guys should focus more on your own domestic problems and leave Africa alone. I think president Obama is a wise man which is more than i can say for most of you.

    Note From SRN: You may want to re-read the article. Americans do NOT want us to interfere in other country’s internal issues. But, if you are, go for the head and spare the innocent civilians who inevitably get caught in the cross-fire. We believe we should NOT be in Libya at all. We midtakenly gave into the Europeans in joining this civil war. Our question is what is our foreign policy regarding intrusions into internal conflicts. We owe that to the rest of the world. Right now we American Citizens do not know nor do we agree with making it up on the fly.

  2. Wow, I can’t believe how many of you are are now a foreign policy expert!! Even though most Americans think the world starts and stops at US borders…

    What’s sadder is that its the Republicans – those who have been responsible for the greatest US foreign policy failures – who now think they have all the answers! Huh?!! Then again, it does make sense as the patience, delicacy and nuance that are required to achieve results with diplomacy are clearly not the strong suit for Republicans!!

    If only we could just get W back – he’d know what to do…. be decisive!! Just head in there and blow them all up!

    Note from SRN: Prior comment response aside, I lived in North Africa and the Middle East for 10 years. I do not claim to be an expert but I am not a couch observer either. The point of several of my posts on Libya is that diplomacy did not fail in Libya as it was not even tried. As a former colony of Italy, their PM could have easily intervened and tried to do so but was rebuffed by his NATO counterparts. Diplomacy should have been attempted here and in the absence of diplomacy a coherent policy statement should have been forthcoming but was not. The world vs. Libya is 0 for 2 and many innocent Libyans are paying the price.

Professionalism is Appreciated
