THE WEST SUCKERED BY ARAB LEAGUE INTO ACTING IN LIBYA…….
Never in history did anyone call a war Â “Odyssey”. Somewhere in America a Â Muslim infil-traitor is laughing his ass off!
“Exclusive: Obama authorizes secret help for Libya rebels,”- Psst! Entire world press reports Obama greenlights “secret” action in Libya
Obama War is liberating:
This is a liberal war. Did I say war? I meant “kinetic military action,” or “humanitarian mission,” or maybe “internationally authorized intervention,” or perhaps “time-limited, scope-limited military action” even. Liberals don’t fight wars. They manage “conflicts,” oversee “interventions,” and participate in “actions.” Bullets fly. People die. Just don’t call them wars.
Liberal bombs and missiles are humanitarian in intent. When American ordnance and Libyan people experience their moment of cultural exchange, the Libyans will surely appreciate how well meaning the American policy is. What is “I am from the U.S. government and I am here to help you” in Arabic? (Source)

The Libyan mission Operation Odyssey Dawn, under UN authority, is a dog’s breakfast and nothing good is going to come out of it.
The conniving elite of the Arab League has snookered an ever-ready coalition of western powers to do its bidding. And the western powers (Britain, France, the U.S. and Canada dutifully in tow), with their sights protectively fixed on oil-rich desert patches of the Middle East and North Africa, needed little urging to respond.
This operation, as repeatedly broadcast by coalition leaders, is to save Libyan lives.
There is no instance in the league’s 66-year history when its members were sufficiently moved by evidence before them â€” even genocide as in the case of Saddam Hussein’s repeated massacre of Kurds and Iraqi Shiites â€” to protect the abused.
The Libyan situation offered the league an opportunity to redeem its dishonorable record.
Arab states possess military resources that they could have deployed as a league operation and, in keeping with the UN principle of “responsibility to protect,” placed in effect a no-fly zone over Libyan air space to save civilians and punish Gadhafi.
But the unwillingness of the league to intervene in Libya, or anywhere else in the Arab world â€” save for its unrelenting hostility towards Israel â€” is related to the fear of establishing a precedent among its members that nobody wants.
However, a precedent of a sort with unsavoury consequences for the future has been established. The league has talked the UN and western powers into doing its bidding without assuming any responsibility for consequences it finds politically distasteful or unpopular.
Middle Eastern culture of bargains made in bazaars is well known and in such haggles, sellers regularly find happily deluded suckers. The league made a winning bargain over Libya, and suckers of those left to pick up the bill and take the blame.
