Why is Americas’ military being turned into the Red Cross by this administration? Last time I checked, Obama vowed NOT to get this nation into ‘’another’’ war. Many of us see Obama as a leopard that has changed his spots. I don’t. Obama is still the same as he was during his developmental years in Indonesia as he is right now in the Oval Office. What he is doing in Libya is him simply putting action to his words and speeches over the years.
The past week I have been reading ‘’The Roots of Obama’s Rage” by former Reagan policy analyst Dinesh D’Souza. It is fascinating as it traces Obama’s roots that have ultimately formed his beliefs and ideology. It proves that Obama is merely carrying out the policies that his late African father was not able to do. It clearly exemplifies the ties that still bind Obama with his radical Kenyan father. D’Souza makes the point that is why Obama’s book is entitled “Dreams FROM my father” and not “Dreams OF my Father.” Quite a difference. Obama’s grandfather and father lived in Africa under British rule, which fired up the anti-colonial and anti-American sentiment in Obama’s father. America in essence to Obama Jr. (our President) is to the world what Britain was to Africa: a neocolonial nation. Meaning: a nation that invades and uses its wealth to stay and overtake the country. This is why upon Obama’s red carpet entrance into the White House he sent back the bust of British leader Winston Churchill. See the connection? I recommend every American read this book because the pieces to this incomprehensible puzzle will finally fit together. This is why when I see what Obama is doing in Libya it makes sense. I mean, not that I agree but from his worldview it makes sense. That is why Obama was adamant that this escapade in Libya isn’t an attack on Libya but rather a means to help the people of Libya.
Americans shook our heads with awed-opened mouths at the audacity of Obama to bypass America’s Congress for the authority to go to war. Yes, it is a war. I don’t care if he wants to rename it a ‘’Kinetic Military Operation.” Just like the fact that a terrorist is a terrorist, not persons who are ‘’mischievous’’ as Obama said of the 9-11 hijackers. After this administration Webster’s going to publish a new dictionary for all the new politically correct phrases Obama has concocted over the past two years. He completely disregarded the Constitution. What’s new though right?
So he took off to Brazil and toured the sights of Rio. His favorite is probably the statute of Jesus overlooking the city because for Obama it’s like looking at a statue of himself. While there he authorized U.S. involvement in Libya after he received a “oui” from Sarkozy. Not one formal announcement here at home though. The American people were caught off guard as much as the recipients of the scud missiles. Obama made one little announcement from Rio stating that we joined NATO forces to help the ‘’rebels’’ which let’s be honest, aren’t truly pro-America, outstanding Libyan citizens. He further stated what we WON’T do in Libya; no boots on the ground, we won’t stay (a.k.a. no neo-colonialism here…) we won’t do this, we won’t do that but if you’re protesting in the streets, duck!
Obama continued to express how America will partake in this ‘’humanitarian’’ effort to ease the threat on the Libyan people. Okay, great but why are we not removing the biggest threat of all; Gaddafi? Not a chance. Not on Obama’s Rolex, because that would make America the bully he sees her as. Obama doesn’t care that Gaddafi is responsible for the deaths of over 200 innocents on Pan AM 103 or the fact that two U.S. servicemen were killed in a Berlin night club bombing ordered by the eye wandering, hallucinating murderer. That doesn’t matter to Obama. That’s not a good reason.
So what the heck are we doing in Libya if we aren’t taking out the source of the problem? For example, say someone has cancer and the doctor goes in to operate to remove the cancer. The doctor goes in and cleans all around the cancer but doesn’t remove the cancer itself. So the cancer remains, it spreads and gets increasingly worse. Malpractice at its worse. That is exactly what Obama has done in Libya. He is leaving the cancer in place while evading the real problem which is Gaddafi himself. Does he think Gaddafi is going to roll out of his shack palace in his mismatched green and gold garb sporting his Ray Bans and surrender? What if the American troops who discovered Saddam in his earthly hole offered to give him a bath, check him for bugs and sent him on his way? That’s basically what Obama has ordered in Libya. This is simply and dangerously not a means to take out Gaddafi but a statement brought to the world on behalf of Obama that no longer is America going to be that ego-centric, occupying nation. We are solely a humanitarian effort now. He is inadvertently carrying out his apologies by action, or lack thereof.
We can look at Libya and gain a lot of insight as to what happens when a nation elects someone whose ideology isn’t aligned with the majority of Americans. This jaunt in Libya is a clear example of what happens when America elects a President who prefers a permission slip from a corrupt body of nations (The United Nations) over the okay from his own nation. This is what happens when America elects a ‘’citizen of the world’’ as Obama called himself in Berlin in 2009 rather than a citizen of America. This is what happens when America elects a man who sees America as a neocolonial nation through the eyes of his late Kenyan father. We don’t have an American patriot in the Oval Office America, we have a man who is hell bent on righting the so-called wrongs of America’s past. America in Obama’s eyes is the last neocolonial nation and it’s his duty to rid the world of this threat. He wants to turn America into a comedy show and he’s got the power, as he sits in the director’s chair.
