I told you so, again

Obama’s Libya:

I don’t mind one bit saying “I told you so” to all those — particularly journalists — who ignored my objective, fact-supported arguments against Western military and foreign policy in the Middle East and wound up with egg on their face as a result. (I have been trying to revive the nearly-lost scientific method and apply it to journalism, which has become nothing but a series of propaganda mills. So far, there seem to be no takers).

Obama and NATO must bear the responsibility for the fall of Kaddafi, and I have warned that this fall of a stable secular Middle Eastern leader will come back to bite the West hard in the butt.

Now Fox News and others are finally cautiously discussing the fact that the rebels are an unknown quantity and may not be as benign as they were portrayed back when they seemed to have much less chance of winning. Last night it was pointed out by Sean Hannity and Oliver North that they are a mix of tribal representatives and terrorists and their new proposed constitution already calls for sharia law, in stark contrast to Kadaffi’s secular constitution (miss him yet?).

Most telling was the remark: “Obama owns Libya.”

In case you have forgotten our direct military involvement in Libya, in addition to Obama’s repeated calls for Kadaffi (sp Gadhaffi in the linked article) to step down, here is the report on the joint French-American Operation Odyssey Dawn the day after it happened:


 Back in March, I found no mainstream commentators on the left or right criticizing the West’s role in this operation or in Egypt. In fact, there has been a steady stream of “conservative” criticism against Obama for not going after Kadaffi more resolutely. (The clueless candidates — most recently Bachmann — mostly followed their clueless lead, bleating similar statements). Generally, there is a dearth of substantive criticism of any Western military involvement by left or right, no doubt for political or career reasons (many fear appearing unpatriotic, even though honest and objective commentary would ultimately save Western lives and Western embarrassment), but also due to a serious shortage of brain power. Now that a Marxist is in the White House, mainstream conservatives are finally criticizing our involvement in a Middle East conflict, but mainly because they can pin the fallout on the Left. But none of them mentioned that the regimes in post-Carter Iran, post-Clinton Kosovo, post-Bush Iraq, post-rebellion Egypt and the Ivory Coast, once ruled by secularists, are now in the hands of democratically elected Islamist leaders or mobs who openly persecute and murder Christians wholesale  (see, for example, the 4th link below on the Ivory Coast massacre of Christians presided over by the UN) and do not believe in Israel’s right to exist. (A nation that allows Muslims to live within its boundaries, whereas Muslim nations typically forbid Israelis — or often any Jews — even to visit. How fair and democratic is that?).

By contrast, I (who have nothing to lose, am not being paid for this and answer to no one) was warning repeatedly about the error in our involvement in the Middle East, not just by Democrat presidents, notably Obama, but also by Republicans (BTW, Reagan, who pulled us out of Lebanon, was an exception), and pointing out then-unheeded facts to state my case, reminding, for example, that the local Christian populations were always the ones who paid the biggest price when a stable secular leader was replaced by a mob, which eventually, inevitably, turned into an Islamic-led government with significantly less freedom for the people than under the “cruel dictators” we replaced — as well as vastly less diversity, which, oddly, Western powers prize in their countries. Israel, of course, came closer to the brink of war with each successive “win” and Iran was given a permanent pass by the West, as though these merciless enforcers of brutal Sharia law, who execute countless people for sexual misdeeds and inappropriate clothing, were lily-white defenders of human rights (as we speak, there are 2 Americans jailed in Iran for “spying,” on flimsy evidence). I sent links to each of my articles on this subject to thousands of potential readers, including major news outlets, inclucing to all Fox News personalities. News people typically do not respond, but judging by last night’s commentary by Sean, perhaps they had read some of what I said here:












and here



Olavo de Carvalho also warned you here:


Look, I don’t mind people calling me crazy. But you journalists who lead the Western world by providing information to decision makers, should know by now that, in the long run, ignoring warnings about the West’s disastrous involvement in the Middle East is going to hurt you a whole lot more than it does the warning party.

  1. FANTASTIC!!!! Finally, someone besides Ron Paul saying it like it is!

    My aunt sent me the link to this, but you, my friend, have a new, loyal reader!

    Thank you for your intelligent post, as well as the one about Christianity and Libertarianism and the consent of the government – I don’t think I could have said it better myself! Just awesome! Now time to dive in to the rest!!

    God bless you!

  2. Could not agree more. What these dopes can’t grasp is that every time another Muslim country is overrun by rabble it’s the Christians who suffer as they have no Jews to speak of there. Israel can quite easily defend itself but the Christians (and other religions) will be killed off or at the very least kicked out as they kicked a million Jews from these countries over the last 60 years.

  3. Watchout for these coming dates:
    20 September = UN decision to cede the West Bank and Golan Heights to the Palestanians.
    7 October = beginning of the second Yom Kippur war.
    2 November = third anniversary of the usurper’s (s)election.

    Two wise statements from my faorite book: Luke 13:6-9:

    “And He told this parable: ‘A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none.
    And He said to the vinedresser, ‘Look, for three years now I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it down. Why should it use up the ground?’
    And he answered Him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and put on manure. Then if it should bear fruit next year (fourth year) well and good; but if not, you can cut it down’”

    More wisdom: Luke 11: 46-48:
    “And He said, ‘Woe to you lawyers also! For you load people with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers.
    ‘Woe to you! For you build the tombs of the prophets whom your fathers killed.
    ‘So you are witnesses and you consent to the deeds of your fathers, for them, and you build their tombs.’”

    Riposte: An alien ‘lawyer’ mesmerized the public with promises to transform America with ‘hope and change’. The usurper did exactly what it intended–for three years the chameleon and thief malnourished America’s vineyard, exfoliated the fig tree, and fleeced the nation’s assets with bailouts. 3 November 2011 is the beginning of the chameleon’s fourth year in office, ‘the thing’ (1 Sam 8:6) will pile more toxic manure (QE3) on the roots and will ensure the demise of our republic. We will soon discover the outcome during the entity’s fourth year.
