And So It Begins – Arab League Backing Away From Support of Intervention in Libya

“What is happening in Libya differs from the aim of imposing a no-fly zone,” he said in a statement on the official Middle East News Agency. “And what we want is the protection of civilians and not the shelling of more civilians.”

So says The Arab League secretary general, Amr Moussa.  This is the reason that I was and continue to be against the intervention of a civil war that is not happening in The United States of America.  That is the only civil war we should ever be involved in.  

The Arab nations are uncomfortable with the bombings.  What exactly did they think it would take to set up a no fly zone?  Destroying the capability of the air force must be done in order to protect the pilots who are enforcing the no fly zone.  The loony leader of this country is like many other terrorists in The Middle East who put innocent people in the way so he can then politicize the loss of innocent life.  We have seen that done over and over again against Israel. Hamas and Hezbollah have perfected this move, so Gaddafi is just following their sad and sick lead. 

suggested the claims of wanting to protect civilians were just a cover for a desire to install a more malleable leadership in Tripoli and make it easier to exploit Libya’s oil.

“The countries aligned against Libya are there not for humanitarian reasons but to further their own interests,

We cannot win for losing with the people and the governments of the Middle East.  The reality is they also have air force capabilities if they wanted to stop that madman they should have the backbone to do it themselves and leave us out of it.  The reality is it so much easier to allow this country to take the risks and spend the money.  Because if it all goes bad they can simply blame the big bad Americans.  We are not the world’s policeman.  The populace of The Middle East don’t like our intervention?  Then man up and take care of your own affairs.
