After months of hearing commentators say how good it was to see “Democracy” finally coming to Libya, we now know for a fact that was a dream if there ever was one. I was one of many who had their doubts about war in Libya, not because Col. Gaddafi was a good man but because what could have come and taken over could have been far worse and much more difficult to control from our end as a world power.
Our worries were justified, and no matter what the President says about “Democracy” in that part of the world, we the people know better. There is no democracy coming to Libya or any other of these nations, but what we will see is much worse than what we have seen in Northern Africa and the Middle East in our life times. You want to know who to blame for this, you do not not have to look too far!
It is very simple to blame the President of the United States for this when it was European powers who pushed this attack and pushed for help for the rebels, but the United States did not have to come on board with anything. We could have stayed out of the conflict and allowed Europe to deal with the trouble that came after. Instead, we have heard less and less about European involvement and much, much more about the United States involvement in Libya. This is because if it was not for the United States there would have been no NATO bombings which led to the demise of the Gaddafi regime. The end of the regime that we could control, for the most part, came about because the “Anti-War” President, the man given the Nobel Peace Prize, decided to back rebels that he KNEW would institute anything but Democracy inside Libya. We the people saw this coming, so it is tough to say the President and those ion our government did not see it coming. While we may not see a threat from Libya in the near future, we just may have created the next Iran without even thinking about the consequences of our actions. read more »
