Where are all the “liberal” voices against the new war in Libya? I often go to the huffingtonpost.com to see what the trendy progressives think of current events. After wading through the disgusting fluff about the latest celebrity “baby bump” or who is “stepping out” with their significant other, you will find links to corporate news stories dealing with world issues. Real dissent is not found on AOL/huffingtonpost. You will only get the company line, or some small variation there of. The comment sections on these stories are so disgraceful that it makes the Fox news audience look enlightened. There is one intellectual comment for every hundred hypocritical pro-war rants. “Gaddafi is a brutal dictator who must be stopped from killing the freedom-loving rebels.” “The brave rebels need our support.” Recently, Gaddafi asked what Obama would do if rebels attacked an American city. First off, Obama wouldn’t do anything. He makes no decisions for himself. He is a sock puppet who has such a sordid past that he would never step out of line, for fear of being exposed as the fraud that he really is. To answer Gaddafi’s question, the powers that be would probably light off a neutron bomb on the rebels and then use the media to blame it on the terrifying Osama bin Laden and the omnipotent Al Qaeda (correctly pronounced Al- CIA duh).
How many times will these enlightened, progressive voices use mental gymnastics to call for democracy to be delivered from fighter jets? The vast majority of Americans will believe the media’s spin on the “new Hitler” every time. Most probably lack the ability to understand that about 6 billion or so people see the U.S. and the western world as the new Nazis. Whatever that means. – Editor
The United States has just started bombing another country half-way around the world that poses absolutely no threat to us. We have killed millions in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, but we still get to claim the moral high ground against the Libyan government and posture like they represent all that is evil. Libya is not occupying any countries thousands of miles away. We are. We test new weapons on civilian targets, we use unmanned drones to bomb wedding parties in Pakistan, we provide Israel with the means to perpetrate genocide on the Palestinians, we lock up children at our bases in foreign countries. “No fly zone” is an euphemism for bombing campaigns against sovereign nations that don’t jump on command. Obama is not a man of peace. He is a puppet that will do whatever he is told to do by the global power elite. If you supported him and bought into his Hope and Change brainwashing, do you feel betrayed as you watch the bombs fall on Libya? Of course, there was no declaration of war, those days are long past. While Obama is nothing more than an effeminate poseur, he should still be treated as a war criminal. Just like Clinton and Bush before him, and just like the next empty suit you see on your t.v. is sure to be. – Editor
I feel the same way about the “revolutions” in the Middle East as I do about Wikileaks. If any of these incidents threatened the control of the ruling elite, they would not be plastered endlessly across the media. Discarding a few worn-out puppets is only eyewash. While it is inspirational to see citizens fight crooked government, the riots in the Muslim world are not about an oppressed people rising up. They are about divide and conquer. They are about Zionism’s vertical consolidation of power in the region. – Editor
Heavy weapons, including anti-aircraft missiles, are being used to murder scores of pro-democracy campaigners in Colonel Gaddafi’s Libya with the death toll already “well into three figures”, it has emerged.
