An American intervention would likely aid jihadists. So in “Libya: What to do?,” by Raymond Ibrahim in National Review Online (viaÂ RaymondIbrahim.com), March 10, Raymond says that without a clear and focused objective, the U.S. should not intervene. Good advice, not often enough heeded:
That Qaddafi is an anti-American and tyrannical thug, there is no doubt. But unless this administration has a clear and focused policy on what it wants to accomplish in Libyaâ€”one that does not include cozying up to Islamists or that is built solely atop temporary economic considerationsâ€”it may be best to let the Middle East’s latest survival-of-the-fittest installment play out, and go from there.
What? Is he saying he wasn’t a card carrying member all along?
The rebels are ‘rats’ and anyhow, the West Â only wants to steal Libyan oil. Now where did we hear that before?
Colonel Qaddafi is switching scare tactics.
For weeks he warned that any ouster of himself would let Al Qaeda take control of Libya.
Now he warns that in an invasion he would join forces with Al Qaeda. Qaddafi toldÂ Il Giornale: “We will ally ourselves with al-Qaida and declare holy war.”
The leftarded Grunard buys it:
That indeed is a scary idea, which will give America another reason not to commit to a no-fly zone.
Qaddafi also expressed his discontent with European leaders (viaÂ The Guardian): “I was really shocked by the attitude of my European friends. They have damaged and endangered a series of major accords on security that were in their interests and the economic cooperation that we had… I am so shocked, I feel betrayed, I don’t even know what to say to Berlusconi.” Â Â (viaÂ The Guardian)
