To listen to the media last week you would think the war in Libya was over. Never mind of course that Gadaffi is still alive and his troops continue to fight. Obama didn’t declare mission accomplished but he praised the efforts in Libya. This months after he declared American operations in Libya would be a matter of days and two months after the War Powers Act was violated by the administration. Even if Gadaffi is removed from office and killed, we have to ask ourselves whether the new regime will be better than the old. Keep in mind, Gadaffi became an ally during the Bush administration when he provided us with information about al Qaeda. Obama even met with him in 2009.
According to the CIA, jihadists are plotting to take over in Libya now that there’s a power vacuum. This shouldn’t come as a surprise considering a draft of a new Libyan constitution declares sharia law. We’ve known from the beginning that radical Islamic socialists in the Muslim Brotherhood, not to mention al Qaeda, participated in the rebel uprising. Keep in mind, this is the side that President Obama decided was so important for us to support. Even after having met with Gadaffi in 2009 and even after having said nice things about him them. Nothing changed on Gadaffi’s side since that meeting, it’s not like he’s engaged in terrorist activity in the last two years. Libya has gone from a state that was obviously borderline but still an ally in the region to a nation that appears set for a jihadist government that enforces sharia law.
The Libyan rebels are rounding up black Libyans and black migrant workers, accusing them of being part of Gadaffi’s forces. The rebels are putting these blacks in concentration camps and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if they were killing some of them. They have no evidence against them, their only reason for arresting them is that they’re black. So not only are the rebels jihadists who want the government to enforce sharia law, they’re racists as well. This is the side Obama made out to be virtuous and freedom loving.
Let’s face facts, President Obama is more allied with the Muslim Brotherhood then he is with American interests. He’s supported the Brotherhood in Egypt even though we had an ally in Mubarak for more than 30 years. He’s supported the Brotherhood in Libya despite Gadaffi becoming an ally and despite an otherwise pleasant and positive meeting with the man in 2009. Obama appears to be shifting on Assad in Syria, supporting the Muslim Brotherhood against him. Syria isn’t really an ally but it’s interesting to watch Obama’s support shift to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Keep in mind, the Muslim Brotherhood’s main goals include destroying Israel, destroying capitalism, creating a socialist caliphate and enforcing sharia law. Interestingly the radical left from which Obama comes from believes in destroying Israel and capitalism and creating socialist nations. It’s why George Soros funded groups supported the Arab Spring and why union leaders and assorted radical leftists have called from an American version. Obama is closely associated with Soros and we all know of his radical leftist ties. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Muslim Brotherhood gets more support than America’s long term interests in the middle east.
