Obama Lies America Into Another War

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


640x392_64002_254534Around this time two years ago, Barack Obama delivered a prime time speech in which he told viewers waiting for him to shut up and make way for American Idol, “We have spent a trillion dollars on war, at a time of rising debt and hard economic times… America, it is time to focus on nation-building here at home.”

Even while he was delivering a speech promising to begin nation-building at home, the warplanes he had dispatched to Libya were bombing government targets in support of the Islamist uprising.

A month earlier, Obama had told Americans that he had a duty to protect “Benghazi, a city nearly the size of Charlotte”. Given a choice between nation-building in Charlotte and Benghazi; Obama chose Benghazi.

In September 2012, Obama gave yet another speech calling for a withdrawal from Afghanistan and nation-building at home. Ten days later, the diplomatic mission in Benghazi came under attack by militias and terrorists who had been allowed to take over the city by Obama’s  Libyan intervention.

At the presidential debate, despite the broken promises on Libya, Obama once again brought out his “nation-building at home” card.

In response to a question about the challenges of the Middle East and the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Obama speechified, “The other thing that we have to do is recognize that we can’t continue to do nation building in these regions. Part of American leadership is making sure that we’re doing nation building here at home.”

The response should have come with a laugh track. Eight months later, the Nobel Peace Prize winner is preparing to lead America into his second Arab Spring war.

The script has already been written and it’s the same script that saw airtime in Libya. Claim an imminent threat to civilians that is actually a threat to the terrorists. Carve out a No Fly Zone. Arm the terrorists. And then sit back and wait for the next Benghazi.

To invade Libya, Obama lied and told the American people that the residents of Benghazi were about to suffer a massacre that would stain “the conscience of the world.” No such massacre had taken place or was ever going to take place. The only innocent people who wound up massacred in Benghazi were the Americans sent there by Hillary Clinton.

This time, swap out Aleppo or Homs for Benghazi as the cities badly in need of American protection. Never mind that the Christians of Aleppo and Homs, the only innocent parties in a religious war between a Shiite government and Sunni terrorist groups, are in far more danger from the Islamist Sunni terrorists that Obama is proposing to arm.

The Free Syrian Army’s Farouq Brigades went door to door expelling Christians in Homs. Of the 160,000 Christians in the city, there are now barely a 1,000. Christians in Aleppo have faced kidnappings and car bombings. Some have chosen to arm themselves against the rebels.

“We see on TV armed young men with beards shouting, ‘Allah is great!’ and calling for jihad. We have the right to defend ourselves,” one Christian in Aleppo said. But Obama won’t be supplying the Christians with any weapons. Those are reserved for the bearded young Allah-shouters.

In Qseir, the city recently recaptured by the Syrian Army from the Sunni militias, whose loss partly triggered the rush to war by the Western allies of the Muslim Brotherhood, most of the Christians had fled a place where they were once 10 percent of the population following Sunni Muslim persecution.

The 10,000 Christians of Qseir were ordered to leave the city by loudspeakers on mosques. If Obama’s intervention helps the Islamist militias retake Qseir; there will soon be no Christians left in the city at all. And the same goes for Homs and Aleppo.

Intervention in support of the Islamist militias in Syria is nothing more than a Christian ethnic cleansing project. And those supporting it should be treated like any other advocates of ethnic cleansing.

Obama’s intervention in Libya turned Benghazi over to Islamist militias who have persecuted Christians. His intervention in Syria will ethnically cleanse Christians while rewarding the Muslim Brotherhood with another building block for their caliphate plans.

The Syrian War, like the Libyan War, is built on a pyramid of lies. There are no good options in Syria and nothing we do will help anyone there.

Despite the belated declaration that the Syrian government had breached a Red Line by using chemical weapons, the evidence points to chemical weapons use by both sides.

Obama is choosing to hold only one side accountable for actions that both sides have taken. While the Sunni rebels who used chemical weapons will be armed and aided, the Shiite government which used chemical weapons will get bombed. That’s not human rights; it’s cynical hypocrisy.

The vaunted “Red Line” was and is irrelevant. The White House delayed taking a position when the evidence of a breach first came in and dispatched its media allies to make excuses for not taking an immediate stand because the line was never the issue. The determining factor was whether the Sunni rebels could win on their own or not.

The Libyan intervention had nothing to do with protecting the people of Benghazi and everything to do with protecting the Islamist militias in Benghazi which were in danger of losing the city. The Syrian intervention has nothing to do with whether Assad used chemical weapons, but the worry that the Sunni militias will lose Aleppo and Homs the way that they appear to have lost Qseir.

It was only when it became clear that the Sunni rebels were being rolled back by government forces, that the Red Line began flashing in the White House.  And if there is any doubt of that, Politico quoted an administration official as saying, “The decision was ultimately driven by the discovery Assad used [chemical weapons], but there were a number of other factors in place that were also important… “Would we have made [the determination Assad had breached the red line] even if we didn’t have the evidence? Probably.”

Had an official of the previous administration made such a statement around the Iraq War, there would have been talk of impeachment, but the media has long since gotten used to swallowing the bizarre lies put out by an administration that ended the Iraq War twice and kept insisting that Al Qaeda was on the run even as it was expanding across North Africa.

Obama lied the country into war in Libya. Now no one even blinks as an official admits that he was prepared to lie the country into war in Syria.

Before the campaign, Obama yammered about nation-building at home. Libya isn’t home. Neither is Syria.

While Obama botched Afghanistan, he has insisted on committing the United States to intervening in every nation-building war that the Arab Spring can throw up. Despite slashing the military to the bone, he hasn’t slaked his appetite for new wars. Even though he has dismantled the ability of the FBI to track Islamic terrorists at home, he has busily devoted government resources to helping them win abroad.

Syria is not America’s war. It is the Muslim Brotherhood’s war. Instead of nation-building at home, Obama is caliphate-building abroad.

    “Intervention in support of the Islamist militias in Syria is nothing more than a Christian ethnic cleansing project.” EXACTLY RIGHT.
    The same applies in Libya and Egypt. But, in all fairness, Bush is at fault as well for the massacre of Christians in Iraq.

    • EarlyBird

      You’re right, but this is Front Page Rag and it’s not interested in being “fair” about anything.

      • Drakken

        Your boy Comrade Obummer is in office now, and you can’t blame the idiot neocons for this goatf**k.

        • EarlyBird

          Try to keep Killer. The issue is that Lybia – even the murders in Benghazi and the country’s current state – is hardly the worst mistake the US has ever made in the Middle East.
          Everyone – even right wingers like you – know that Iraq was. It was a disaster of epic proportions that opened up a new playground for Al Queda, destroyed a nation, empowered Iran, cost us one trillion dollars and 4,000+ American lives, and broke open the Middle East to chaos.
          And it was a trumped up war based entirely on lies.
          So for this ridiculous hate site to suggest that Lybia set the bar for failure is an outrageous lie, and you have to be stupid to sign on to that.

          • Drakken

            Well your good buddy Obummer should have known better about Libya then shouldn’t he? So trying to blame Bush now is absolutely pointless. Comrade Obummer is in office and owns it all. Hey, you voted for him, enjoy the destruction that is wreaked upon us because of that affirmative action worst pres EVER!

          • EarlyBird

            What makes him an “affirmative action” president, Bubba? He won the biggest share of the votes in both elections since Bush I.
            Oh. He’s black so he automatically didn’t earn his position. That’s right. And you wet your pants when you’re called a racist.

          • Drakken

            Your throwing out of the race card has zero meaning, your messiah Comrade Obummer got elected because he wasn’t Bush, and frankly I would take bush again over this effing disaster we have in there now.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            “What makes him an “affirmative action” president, Bubba? He won the biggest share of the votes in both elections since Bush I.

            What makes him an AA POTUS is the motivation behind most of the votes.

            “Oh. He’s black so he automatically didn’t earn his position.”

            What POTUS does “automatically win?”

            “That’s right. And you wet your pants when you’re called a racist.”

            Your world is full of delusion.

          • ziggy zoggy

            President Bush liberated and democratized Ira, and killed hundreds of thousands of Al Qaeda cockroaches while doing so. All 17 of the reasons he cited for overthrowing the murderous tyrant Saddam Hussein and denying jihadis a breeding ground were factual – including the media fabrication of WMD as the sole reason. Scud missiles (WMD) were launched at Coalition forces on an hourly basis at the beginning of the liberation. Asshat has used Iraqi manufactured chemical weapons against his Al Qaeda foes and they have captured some from him.

            And don’t pretend that a leftard like you cares about wasting American money or lives. Scumbags like you live for that $hit.

          • EarlyBird

            Damn, you’re stooopid, Soggy. And by the way, are you gay? That beard sure makes you look like that.

          • ziggy zoggy

            Am I gay? Why? Are you looking for a date? Does my manly beard turn you on? Does its caveman/mountain man luxuriance threaten your scraggly and callow islamopithecine standard?
            Give it up. I know you’re a woman.

          • EarlyBird

            “Am I gay?”
            You don’t know if you’re gay or not?

            That’s what gays always think. Not that there’s anything wrong with being gay, just don’t ask me to publish your social calendar, preferences and so forth. Just keep that to yourself, ok?

          • EarlyBird

            Bearded Idiot:
            There is no democracy in Iraq. There is no liberty in Iraq. There were no Alquies in Iraq until we invaded that country. We destroyed Iran’s biggest enemy, and empowered their Shia counterparts in Iraq. Even IF Saddam had WMD, by your own conclusions Bush was so incompetent as to let them slip out to Syria – the very supposed reason we invaded in first place!

            The war cost us 4,000 American lives, tens of thousands of maimed Americans, $1 trillion dollars, and about 300,000 Iraqi lives. AND we precipitated an Iraqi civil war which they’ve been at since about 2007.

            You are stupid, stupid little man. Your mother is stupid. You’re an ignorant, reactionary, thoughtless, stupid Neanderthal. You serve no purpose on this earth.

          • ziggy zoggy

            President Bush did NOT liberate Iraq simply because Saddam HUSSEIN had WMD. Idiot. Iraq’s economy, infrastructure and freedom were radically increased after President bush conducted his humanitarian mission. That mission improved the standard of living for average Iraqis in every measurable way.
            Not even Alexander could have prevented WMD going from Iraq to Syria an your girl Obama let Al Qaeda get their paws on them.
            Go celebrate American deaths so don’t use them as argumentation points – scumhole.
            One of my purposes on God’s green earth is to expose and slap little bitches like you. Good bitch slapping.

          • defcon 4

            Yes, for islamo-nazis such as yourself, telling the ugly truth about islam certainly constitutes hate doesn’t it? It’s kinda strange, in a mendaciously hypocritical way, that you have nothing to say about the hatred of infidels/kufrs (and especially Jews) that is part and parcel of your death cult Fatima.

          • EarlyBird

            Oh, do tell us how the Iraq War was a stunning success for American liberty and security?

            Try to follow along, you baboon: I’m AGAINST Obama’s proposal to get involved in Syria. I was and am against Obama’s decision to arm the Lybian rebels. I was surely against Bush’s Iraq War – you know, the disaster you are still cheering because a white Republican created it?

    • defcon 4

      How is Bush responsible for the actions of islamo-nazis in slaughtering, raping and persecuting CHristians ANYWHERE? Did he ever advocate for, or support these actions? Or is this just merely an attempt to minimize the responsibility of islamo-nazis for killing and persecuting the filthy kufr/infidel?

      • Naresh Krishnamoorti

        Saddam protected Chaldean Christians. Saddam’s number two man was Tariq Aziz, a Chaldean Catholic. Saddam was also fighting the islamo-fascists, as you call them. By toppling Saddam, Bush should have known what would happen — that Islamists would run loose killing Christians in Iraq. Instead of the Wilsonian, neo-conservative nonsense of imposing democracies everywhere, Bush should simply have toppled Saddam, and replaced him with another autocrat like Tariq Aziz who would keep the Islamists at bay.

    of murdered Christians are Obama’s legacy to Christians that voted
    for his miserabilness to corrupt and debase our Nation and suppor this Islamist , Mullah Obama should be impeached and sentto Guantanimo for
    permanent retirement along with his tsars and leftist subversives
    ……………William

    • EarlyBird

      William,

      Anything that is happening to Christians in the Arab world was going to happen regardless of what President Obama, or a President McCain (shudder), or President Romney would have done. The Great Powers-cum-US control over the Arab world which has been in place for about 100 years has been collapsing for a long, long time, and we’re just witnessing its final death throes.

      Obama is being dragged into his wrong-headed support of rebels in Syria by the same ideologues who got us into Iraq and Lybia, i.e., still-working neocons, and liberal interventionists like Rice and the Clintons. Obama is weak and caving to their pressure to “do something!”
      The thing is that giving small arms to the rebels won’t be enough to much, and so in a few months there will be louder calls to “do something!” like a No Fly Zone, or give heavy weapons, etc. It’s how quagmires start.

      I don’t know why we can’t just sit back and watch Assad and Hezbollah get bled dry, Sunni Islamists get wiped out, and Iran and Russia get dragged into this bloody quagmire, and just laugh and laugh and laugh.

      • Drakken

        It is not the repubs or neocon playbook for Obummers support and enthusiasm for a MB takeover. That is all on you leftist/progressives and you own it.

        • EarlyBird

          That’s a foolish response, general. I admit that liberal interventionists (as well as neocons) are pushing Obama into Syria, and I admit he’s weak and caving. Of course this is his problem. What more do you want?
          For me to accept your paranoid nonsense about him promoting MB “take over”? That’s stupid, and I’m not stupid.
          And I ain’t no “leftist/progressive” by any stretch. When you vote nearly-straight Republican ticket on local, state and national elections for 30 years, with two exceptions (Obama twice) and remain a life-long registered Republican, its unlikely you’re a “leftist/progressive.”

          • Judahlevi

            Bird, you own this because of your admission to voting for Obama the last two presidential elections. Take responsibility for that – he is your man.

            As for your name-calling of other posters on this board, you are the typical leftist (even if you won’t admit it) who thinks they are smarter than others but whose ideas are based on emotion, not reason.

            There is nothing new about you. I have encountered your ‘kind’ on many other boards. It is typical leftist drivel.

            “As for your name-calling of other posters on this board, you are the typical leftist (even if you won’t admit it) who thinks they are smarter than others but whose ideas are based on emotion, not reason.”

            I disagree. He knows he’s not smart. He just thinks everyone else is just as dumb as he is because he and anyone else can pick and choose when facts matter according to gut feelings.

            To leftists, whether something is objectively true is not the point at all. What matters is creating a painting of the future they want. A vision, occasionally integrating widely held beliefs that stand in place of objective analysis. Objective analysis is dangerous because it might serve to fortify the “safe” positions of the conservatives. In other words, learning from history is dangerous. It distracts man from building heaven on earth. Better to use historical facts the way that Oliver Stone does. Sprinkle them occasionally and lightly in to your propaganda.

          • Gee

Are you one of those who felt they had to vote for a black man because of some feeling of guilt? Any republican with an ounce of brain power was able to see through that man and his ideology long before the election and despite liberal ideals, no man/woman deserves a vote for any office due to their skin color.

            Walter, because the Republican Party lost its mind. By 2008 it had dramatically failed in the following ways: national security/foreign policy; the economy; doing anything about American competitiveness; increasing liberty; education; the cost of healthcare; the environment.
            And in 2008 it nominated McCain and that idiot Palin. The GOP was aggressively out of touch and incompetent.
            The reason this Republican was able to vote for a Democrat is because he puts the country before the party.

            I’d be VERY happy to have a healthy conservative GOP to vote for. I was very close to going for Romney.

        “Anything that is happening to Christians in the Arab world was going to

    He refuses to turn over the records of the Holy Land Foundation case.

    He disempowered US troops in Afghanistan with toothless ROE’s.

    He backed MB candidate and shariah enforcing Morsi in Egypt.

    He backed AQ infiltrated rebels in Libya.

    He invites known anti US MB operatives to White House functions and Iftar Breakfasts.

    He left Iraq to return to sectarian violence.

    He refused assistance to an ambassador and colleagues in Benghazi, all of whom died.

    He backed the building of the Ground Zero Mosque.

    He calls Turkish PM Recep Erdogan his best foreign ally.

    He treats Netanyahu with sneering disdain and Israel as the major block to Middle Eastern peace.

    He tells Israel where and where not to build in their own country.

    He now arms an entity which has slaughtered Christians by the thousand in Syria.

    He talked of ‘my Muslim faith’.

    He wears a ring purportedly stating, ‘There is no god but Allah’.

    He told us not to jump to conclusions following the Boston bombing.

    He enjoys an average 50 per cent poll rating amongst American voters.

    For me, of all, that last one is the most terrifying.

  • Patty Villanova

    What’s most frightening is that the people who are concerned enough about our situation to be reading this article are in a very, very small minority. If you live in a blue state like NY, it all seems so hopeless–we have lived in Obama land for so long that it’s hard to believe there’s any resistance out there. It’s great to read the online publications like Drudge, Front Page, Breitbart, etc. but then when you see what the “real” world is about, it gets depressing. Most people I know are either ignorant or brainwashed, yet they can vote if they choose to. I live in a town where we pay some of the highest taxes in the USA, yet there is near total apathy to how government on all levels is expanding and taking away our liberties. For the most part, the county here is mostly loyal GOP and is virtually 95% white middle class and screen addicted.

  • http://www.iranaware.com/ American Infidels

    I completely agree not to arm them outright,but we all know that will happen anyways from other nations. I do think we should destroy the militaries heavy weapons and aircraft/air fields, not just to level the field so to speak, but to give us free reign to hunt AQ and Hezbollah either by drone or piloted aircraft.they say there is 30k plus Islamists fighting and close to 10 k of Hezbollah.. smash them all before they get their fill and spread out around the world.
    Israel should ALS use Hezbollah being in Syria as a excuse to smash all the stockpiles south of the river in Lebanon.They are marked with GPS, use it.. clear the path for Iran, because like it or not it’s coming within the next year..

    • EarlyBird

      Only someone stupid enough to show a picture of Obama in a Nazi uniform would write this:

      “I do think we should destroy the militaries heavy weapons and aircraft/air fields, not just to level the field so to speak, but to give us free reign to hunt AQ and Hezbollah either by drone or piloted aircraft.they say there is 30k plus Islamists fighting and close to 10 k of Hezbollah.. smash them all before they get their fill and spread out around the world.”
      And how do we magically “smash” these people and destroy heavy weapons and aircraft? Let me guess, by a quick and easy war that we can control completely, with no backlash, no financial cost or cost in blood to us…
      And the Syrian people will throw candy and flowers at us.
      And when do we put up the “Mission Accomplished” sign?

        The only possible upside I see to arming the rebels, General, is that Assad seems to have been making strides against them recently, and our arming the rebels may help them all continue to bleed a bit longer.

          Yeah, that’s exactly what the Sunni coalition has planned.

          What happened to your great fear of “blowback?”

          You’re just an 0′Bama sycophant without any apparent discernment of your own.

          • EarlyBird

            Oh, I fear “blowback” from arming the rebels. That’s the cloud in which I’ve found a possible silver lining.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            Your math is bad. It’s better if it lasts longer, but under no circumstances should the so-called rebels be allowed win, nor be armed or even assisted at all.

            If anything, we should assist Assad and extract concessions. Of course Russia stops us from doing that directly so we should actually be “flexible” with tolerance of Russian support and then our problems are solved as best we can manage under the present circumstances.

            It may not fit in to your silver lined cloud paradigm, but real world politics rarely do.

            There is NO silver lining to 0′Bama’s foreign policy maneuvers. He’s a traitor. You can count on that. He won’t even arm many of his deployed troops. Now you want to say it’s ok to arm jihadis? What’s the matter with you?

          • EarlyBird

            OFM, you argue just for the sake of arguing. I’ve already stated a great deal of crticism about Obama’s plans to intervene in Syria. I think we could very well suffer blowback from it, and likely will. I hope that our intervention keeps the bleeding on boths sides going for a log time, to at least get a return on our investment.

            Strange…it was a liberal who established the ROE’s that got aircrew lost needlessly over NVN…it was a liberal who placed geographic restrictions on US forces which prohibited crossing into Cambodia or Laos to cut off VC supply sources and routes…it was a liberal who placed in bombing halts for political reasons, thus giving North Vietnamese air defenses time to rebuild and shoot down MORE US aircraft…it was a liberal who didn’t allow US aircrew to attack SAM sites until those sites were up and operational, thus costing the lives of strike package, MiG CAP and Wild Weasel crews needlessly…it was a liberal who didn’t allow the bombing of North Vietnamese air bases where MiG’s were based, thus leading to interceptions of F-105′s, A-6′s, A-4′s, F-8′s and F-4′s, when those MiG’s could have been blasted on the ground…it was a liberal who didn’t allow return of artillery fire which was coming across the DMZ, thus costing the lives of US Soldiers and Marines…more specifically, it was DEMOCRAT who issued these asinine orders, and who also entered that war without a clear way of determining victory or even DESIRING victory! It was left to a MODERATE REPUBLICAN to remove those ROE’s, and then allow troops to DEFEND THEMSELVES, attack the enemy’s supply lines (can you say “Snuol”? How about “Cambodia”?), and then TRULY blast North Vietnamese military capabilities (does the name “Linebacker II” mean anything to you?)! That war was unwinnable because there was no political will to win the war, there was no political aim to achieve (other than for LBJ to defeat Goldwater in 1964), and all Johnson (a LIBERAL) ever did was play politics with that war…and his worthless SecDef, MacNamara, was dictating bomb loads, approach angles and daily targets…POLITICAL MICROMANAGEMENT! In other words, a CONSERVATIVE would have seen that if that war was to be WON, North Vietnam would have had to have been wiped off the face of the earth, and that would have served NO PURPOSE! Rather, a LIBERAL DEMOCRAT POLITICIAN dragged that war out, got THOUSANDS of Americans killed, FOR NO PURPOSE!
            Lesson: NEVER trust a Democrat with running a war. Even FDR screwed up WWII, and Wilson had the US military so fouled up with his “Too Proud to Fight” shows of weakness that it was inevitable that the Germans would think the US was too weak and indecisive to respond to the Zimmermann Note!

          • EarlyBird

            Actually, it’s not a $hithole today. It’s one of Asia’s most vibrant economies with broad manufacturing and tourism sectors and a very, very pretty place. Certainly better than your trailer park filled with lobotimized hicks. Seems that the commies realized their economic plan was a fantasy and started investing in reality a couple of decades ago. Good for them.
            If you knew anything, and you don’t, you’d realize that Ho Chi Minh was quoting Jefferson in the ’30s and ’40s and asking FDR for help to liberate Vietnam from the French, and he visited the US a couple of times. The only reason we got into that war was because after WWII the French wanted to hold onto their colony, and being rebuffed by the West, Ho asked the Commies for help. Then we turned it into our fight against Communist “dominoes,” falling throughout SEA. But their hearts were in their own independence, not communism.

          • ziggy zoggy

            Vietnam doesn’t a “vibrant economy” just because you say so.

            Uh, Vietnam’s GDP has been growing at an average rate of 5.9% for the past few years. Most Western nations would do anything for that. The biggest danger that it’s experiencing right now is that it has likely overbuilt and grew too fast in the past ten years.

            In reality, the S.

Short of nuking that nation we would not have “won.”
            But the real question should have been, “win what?” and “Why were we there to begin with?”

Whatever mistakes Bush may have made or Obama WILL make, at least Bush did not send aid to our ENEMIES and was not a Muslim sympathizer with a frightening radical Islamic agenda for our nation. Bush was on OUR side. If you think BUSH made mistakes, just wait and see what our INCOMPETENT, so-called “Commander-In-Chief” with no military knowledge whatsoever is going to get us into!! There is no comparison whatsoever with Bush’s handling of the war as opposed to what Obama is going to do which will affect ALL of us, and not in a good way.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            “That I will challenge – Bush was the first American President to send aid to the PLO and they too murdered an American Ambassador Celo A. Noel, Jr.”

            He was blackmailed by the Saudis. I believe Bush was wrong, but not that he was trying to enable jihadis as 0′Bama does.

            I also think Bush believed that the “hanging chad” propaganda forced him to reach across the aisle constantly. Maybe he’s just too liberal and that was just an excuse. I can’t say for sure.

            Bush was no great hero, but he’s not an enemy. Just an imperfect politician. 0′Bama is an enemy of the national interests of the USA. I don’t see how anyone can deny that. He’s a globalist on his best days, and jihadi on most others.

          • ziggy zoggy

            You’re right. Bush is a good man who deeply believes in the doctrine of forgiveness. He is not weak or stupid, he is just misguided. He thinks that because that doctrine is good personally (for his soul) that it is good for the country. It isn’t. Countries don’t need salvation in the afterlife – they need it in this one.

All while leaving AQ virtually untouched where it had fled, in Pakistan.
          Gee. Now which is worse: leaving an embassy protected in a dangerous neighborhood, or Iraq? Hmmm.

          • EarlyBird

            Al Queda is the only one with real international reach and aims, and it was doing quite well until Obama started harvesting them with drones, and doing the surge in Afghanistan. It is currently a shell of its former self.
            Pay attention, stupid: the Iraq invasion – which you love – CREATED whole new Islamist terror groups inside Iraq and the whole Arab peninsula, including AQinMesopotamia. They literally went into that broken country to get armed and learn how to fight Americans. You fool. And you’re still singing the praises of that war because a Republican started it. My God!

        “…you call Obama a “traitor” for Benghazi, you don’t mention a word about Bush and his disaster in Iraq.”

        It’s clear like all of the other leftist retards that you don’t even understand the criticism.

        To try to go simply to the heart of the matter, let’s just say that it’s not as self-evident as you and other leftists believe that Bush’s decision to oust Saddam was a mistake. It is however completely self-evident that a POTUS or any executive will be judged when he takes himself out of a developing military situation and then lies about it.

        And he still has not delivered any of that supposed transparency on Benghazi or any other issue for that matter.

        If 0′Bama and Bush ran on the same promises, then you MIGHT be able to start to ask questions to compare them. This 0′Bama traitor promised unrealistic things to the peacenik crowd, and then became more aggressive than Bush but only while serving the interests of the MB rather than those of the USA.

        Those trivial things like who benefits are sort of salient.

    That two faced POS Obama blamed Bush for Iraq and Afganistan during both his campaign runs. He needs to keep this Country out of the muslim brotherhood’s problems. They’re such great humanitarians, they need to let Allah handle their war. If Obama commits troops to this slaughter, he deserves to be impeached.

    • EarlyBird

      Bob, who else but Bush should be blamed for the debacle that was Iraq, and the attempt to “rebuild” Afghanistan rather than merely maul AQ and Taliban and leave? Obama? Perhaps we should be blaming…George McGovern?

      • Erniesam

        You have to admit: because Obama supported the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and told Mubarak to step down, there’s now a brutal theocracy in the making. Because Obama backed the NAVO in “helping” the rebels in Libya (beacuse of the “massacre” that was going to take place), we have now Al Qaeda and other militants there as well as in Mali and Algeria. And Benghazi happened partly as a result of that, but mainly because of the PC-policies of this administration.
        Regardless what Bush did, can’t you judge facts on their own? Don’t you think it’s odd Obama helps only islamists and not ordinary people in Iran or Turkey?

        • EarlyBird

          I’ve been very critical of Obama’s intervening in Lybia, and his mess in Benghazi. I also think his new desire to intervene in Syria will be a disaster.

      • ziggy zoggy

        President Bush liberated and democratized Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama has thrown away both achievements because he will always do his utmost to empower islam.

      I completely agree. This particular war is one that our troops SHOULD NOT have to die for. We would be fighting on the side of our enemies, for God’s sake! NEVER in history have we done that! This SOB in office has really gone too far, as if he could get any worse. I never imagined that even HE could send our troops to die fighting with people who are the epitome of evil and hate our country!! He deserves to be impeached for several things he has pulled lately, but this really tops them all. I say let them fight their own miserable little war for their miserable little reasons, and keep our country out of it!

  • EarlyBird

    The chutzpah it takes for Lil’ Danny Greenfield to pound on “Lybia! Lybia! Lybia!,” and “lying” us into another possibly disastrous war in the Arab world, and not writing a single word about Iraq, a disaster for the US based on nothing but conscious lies about WMDs.
    If ONLY Iraq had been as minor a bungle as Lybia!
    Unbelieveable. But Lil’ Danny is a propagandist, a paid shill, liar and right wing Israel Firster, so he’s used to being shameless. It’s his job. And he’s used to spewing his filth to idiots who lap it up thoughtlessly.

        I’ve also expressed my deep disapproval of his plan to now arm Syrian rebels.
        You’re drunk on partisanship. So, Bush didn’t make any mistakes, and Obama is some evil jihadist or something. Come on, killer, you’re among the smarter of the reactionaries on this board. You can do better than this.

        An honest foreign policy mistake is now a “crime”?
        If Lybia is a “crime” it is a petty one compared to Iraq.

        The point is that it is dishonest and great example of hyperpartisanship to now use Lybia as the benchmark for Middle East debacles and not to even breathe a word about Iraq.
        The reason I’m very unhappy with Obama caving to pressure to arm the Syrian rebels is that he could ultimately responsible for an Iraq-like situation, not another Lybian one. If ONLY the worst mistake a US president had made in the Arab world was Lybia!

        • Erniesam

    • NAHALKIDES

      No lies were told about Iraqi WMD’s – Saddam acted as if he (still) had them (remember that he did possess and use WMD in the past), and the final Duelfer report notes this fact, as it did that Saddam was reconstituting his WMD programs at the time he was overthrown.

      By the measure of America’s interest, which is what the measure should be, Egypt, Libya, and soon Syria, were far worse than Iraq. In Iraq, we at least got rid of Saddam, and had Bush not allowed a new sharia-based Constitution, we might even have an ally and friend there now (that was Bush’s big mistake along with nation-building, which like his other mistakes Obama has since doubled down on).

      • EarlyBird

        If we want to be concerned about getting into a war dishonestly, Iraq is the gold standard, not Lybia. We can distinctly recall Cheney’s and others’ relentless attempts to link Saddam to 9/11, a clear falsehood.
        Bush used the very conflicted intelligence about Saddam’s WMD as a pretext for that invasion, i.e., he WANTED there to be WMD.
        His neocon puppeteers had convinced him that we’d have a quick, easy, decisive war and Iraqis would coalesce around a democratic, pro-American government and we’d remake the Arab Middle East. It was a great fantasy but an absolute debacle.
        I’ve always considered G.W. Bush a good man who was way out of his depth, controlled by far less than good people. I think most Americans feels that way, but I surely don’t see any polls clamoring for his foreign policy. In fact that is why Obama’s Syrian decision is so unpopular.

        • Drakken

          Well why isn’t your good buddy Obummer getting the job done then instead of making it far worse, again, your hero Obummer owns this bloody mess, and it is going to get far far worse.

    usually the old adage ” the enemy of my enemy is my friend” applies but in the boiling imbroglio that is the middle east this is no longer true.

    and the muslim brotherhood , hezbollah and other radicals.
    stephen harper is the only one to see this and he is in a stark minority, a clear indication of how back to front the world is today and assurance that the leaders of today are no more wise or far seeing than chamberlain was 70 odd years ago when he saw hitler as a partner for peace and envisioned his then ludicrous peace in our time hypothesis.

    In 1999, US/NATO waged ruthless war for the KLA Muslim terrorist
    organization against Kosovo’s Christian Serbs. US/NATO triumphantly won
    the war for global Islam – achieving the US/NATO goal of a Muslim terror
    state in the heart of Europe.

  • LindaRivera

    Obama and Western leaders constantly take the side of the most violent, barbaric terrorists in country after country and in so doing, endanger the entire Free World. The goal of Western leaders is to bring to power the most hardline Muslims with
    strict adherence to sharia law.

    US/NATO waged war for months for their TOP FAVORITES, Al Qaeda, in
    Libya. Qaddafi was fighting against Al Qaeda. The U.S. backed RACIST
    terrorists in Libya committed horrific atrocities and genocide of
    blacks. Blacks were SAFE under Qaddafi. I attended a street demo in
    Harlem to protest the wicked genocide.

    The US/UK backed terrorists in Syria are deliberately targeting and
    killing Syria’s Christians which indicates APPROVAL of the Christian
    killing by US/UK/European leaders. Under Assad, Christians have lived in
    relative safety.

  • LindaRivera

    Polls reveal that only 10% of the people in Syria support the terrorists fighting against Assad. This means that Obama and other Western leaders are supporting a war AGAINST Syria’s people.

    Many Muslims have left Europe and Britain to join the terrorists fighting in Syria against Assad. The Muslims will be returning, war-experienced and combat-ready to wage ever-increasing violent jihad in Europe and Britain, thanks to Obama, UK,
    and European leaders.

    It always seems to me that Obama cares nothing for anything Christian, albeit churches, or those who choose Christ in Arab countries (where they are most persecuted.) He continues to be apologetic and sympathetic to Islamist tendencies. It is his core. As a country founded on Judeo-Christian values he has done everything to diminish this worldview here. That is why the United States and the people here will never be put first in his book. Case in point Benghazi. An American will risk their life to save others, no man left behind is our motto. It is as inherent as a normal reaction akin to calling for help when there is a fire in the neighborhood. But there was lacking a fundamental moral essence in the leader of our country to do this, because we still don’t know where he was–or who called stand down. It tends to point in his direction.

    The U.S. needs what the Saudis/Sunni and Muslim brotherhood have. Money and Oil. The U.S. and this administration is doing the bidding for Saudi Arabia/Muslim brotherhood.
    We over throw foreign governments, stand up faux democracies, and fight wars, all on behalf of the Saudis, for what?
    We lack and need what they have, Oil and Money! So we betray Israel and Christians.

    • Juggernaut1969

      We have lots of oil in fact more then the Mid East we just have not and will not drill it because of Liberal policies. These same liberal policies will also allow us to continue to empower the Muslim Brotherhood in the countries where they need no empowerment especially if it flies directly in the face of the best interests of this country. Obama directly intervened and brought the Muslim Brotherhood into power in Egypt and will continue to do so as long as he is in office and unopposed.

      • fanlad

        A major interest for the U.S. in this region, is oil and money. The Saudis have both. Oil in the ground is useless in the short run and only useful if refined in the long run. The politically correct in thing, right now, is the Muslim brotherhood, why? Follow the money and oil trail. With out it, the progressive utopia never happens. In the end we still do the bidding of our banking and oil masters.

        • fanlad

          Now continue to connect the dots. With the U.S. doing the bidding of the Saudis/Sunnis/Muslim brotherhood by waging war on their enemies, the middle east will be further destabilized. Where will the Muslim refugees flee to safety?
          You got it, the U.S..
          This is why the current progressive immigration bill in congress must be rammed down the throats of the American people. An open borders, open door policy for all refugees, including those from Muslim countries to come and reside freely in our country, but not with out bad consequences

        • Juggernaut1969

          I agree but maybe it is in our best interest to get OUR oil oil of OUR ground and keep it in OUR country. This would be a major cut for the money in the mid east and a great boon for our economy. still it is not going to happen at least not yet.

    I just injected Obamas name in the Declaration of Independence.

    …….that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security

    He, Obama has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    He Obama has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
    He Obama has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
    He Obama has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
    He Obama has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
    He Obama has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
    He Obama has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
    He Obama has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
    He Obama has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
    He Obama has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
    He Obama has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
    He Obama has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
    He Obama has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
    For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
    For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
    For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
    For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
    For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
    For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
    For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
    He Obama has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
    He Obama has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
    He Obama is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation. (NSA, CIA for instance)
    He Obama has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
    He Obama has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

    I don’t understand the problem here. Lies have literally made America the best country in the entire world. Think about it. Would you *really* want to move to China? You’ve heard all these rumors about how amazing it is. Perhaps this is the product of Chinese hacking on the internet. But do you really believe it? No way. You don’t believe it for a second. And if that’s a lie. Well then so be it.

    Obama is helping the Muslim Brotherhood bring on their caliphate. He sees himself as the “father of the United Arab States”. Obama helped to start the Syrian war. He is a liar, thief, traitor, and murderer and he is a Muslim Marxist. God help us all.
