Who are Barack Obama, Nicolas Sarkozy and David Cameron
to tell Muammar Qaddafi to resign and leave Libya? These three have lost the
support of their own people; perhaps that is why they are going after Qaddafi,
to turn the attention away from their own shortcomings and lack of popular
appeal as well. This is a crafty Orwellian practice meant to deceive or defraud
-- "Look over there..." then they steal you blind while you are looking "over
there." This Orwellian trick has been used for centuries by failing leaders or
dictators -- they demonize someone, some group or some country, then use their
demonization to do evil things in the name of "humanity," or "truth," or because
they say it's "the right thing to do."
My opinion is that this is exactly what these three
failed "leaders" are doing with their war against Qaddafi and his Libyan
people. What is interesting is that I'm sure these three thought the Libyan
rebels would get more support. However, the majority of the tribes, most of the
military and the people support Qaddafi as is evident by the attacks against the
rebels who are failing except for the air support and missile support they get
from the US and NATO.
Thus, what is basically a civil situation, with attacks on
Libya from outside alQaeda forces, that even American intelligence has
admitted are among the rebel leadership, has turned into an ugly illegal attack
on a sovereign nation to allegedly do a good humanitarian deed. Most intelligent
people realize that this "humanitarian" lie is only a mask, not the truth of the
situation. Everyone knows it's about oil and the breaking up of another Arab
Muslim country, as was done in Iraq.
On April 14, Qaddafi did something
that none of these other three would dare do; he rode in an open car through the
streets of Tripoli and shook hands with his countrymen, with no bodyguards, no
secret service and no bulletproof glass! And yet, these three who would never risk this themselves say that the people don't want Qaddafi. I challenge any of these alleged "leaders" to do the same thing Qaddafi did. We know they won't do
it, because they would likely be assaulted, perhaps assassinated, or at least that's their fear. Some even said, "I would die for Qaddafi; he is our father." I doubt anyone would say this of Sarkozy, Cameron or Obama; I fear they'd call them somewhat less than endearing names.
If you look at the opinion polls, it is clear that the
people of France, England and America are sick of their leaders constant
warmongering, and are against this "war" on Libya. But it's "oil baby, oil," as
always, as well as jealousy of a socialist society that is working. In the
meantime, the three capitalist societies are falling apart at the seams. Of
course, Karl Marx predicted all of this, which is why he is rarely taught in
Western universities; TRUTH has few friends in governments.
I remember when I was in college at Northwestern
University, I asked a professor why Marx was not taught in economics courses
since he made sense. The reply was, "He's a communist from Russia!" Sad, whether
that professor knew it or not, Marx was a German Jew born in Trier, Germany, and
wrote Das Kapital in London, England. Just another example of demonization. I
bring this up because this has been an age-old technique; it never goes
I'm sure there is more to the Libyan matter than any of us know, but it is clear that these three warmongering men, who were
put into office by corporations in their own countries, are either not aware of, or do not understand, The Green Book
-- a short book setting out the political philosophy
of Qaddafi. They do not care about Qaddafi's way of operating. They just want
him to go away or to be killed; he's in their way. However, with so many in
Libya supporting him and fighting against the alleged "rebels" being led by a
CIA operative, it is time for these three to answer the world's question -- WHO
ARE SARKOZY, OBAMA AND CAMERON TO TELL QADDAFI TO RESIGN?
These men have neither the right or the authority to
order another sovereign leader to resign. As I asked a few weeks ago, what would
America do if China told Obama to step down? Would he do it? Of course not. But
if we follow Obama's logic about Qaddafi, then because he is so unpopular and
has done so little for the people, Obama should resign, as well as the
Congress, which has only a 26% support of the American public.
The UN resolution that was passed was simply for a "no
fly zone." It said nothing about replacing or "ousting" Qaddafi. Also, it turns
out the Arab League did not have a full quorum, but voted to support this attack
on Qaddafi in error. The Arab League secretary general, Amr Moussa, is now sorry
that he led the rhetorical assault that the Saudi's and Americans pushed for.
According to the Washington
Post on March 20, Moussa said
he deplored the broad scope of the U.S.-European
in Libya ...
"Moussa said the Arab League's approval of a no-fly zone
on March 12 was based on a desire to prevent Moammar Gaddafi's air force from
attacking civilians and was not designed to endorse the intense bombing and missile attacks -- including on Tripoli, the capital, and on Libyan ground forces
-- whose images have filled Arab television screens for two days.
"'What is happening in Libya differs from the aim of
imposing a no-fly zone,' he said in a statement carried by the Middle East News
Agency. 'And what we want is the protection of civilians and not the shelling of
"Moussa's declaration suggested that some of the 22 Arab
League members were taken aback by what they have seen and wanted to modify
their approval lest they be perceived as accepting outright Western military
intervention in Libya."
Finally, it is clear from the statements of
Constitutional scholars in America and in the words of Congressman Dennis
Kucinich, that Obama is violating the U.S. Constitution by going to war without
congressionial approval. In 2007, then Senator Obama made clear in a speech on
the floor of the senate that President George Bush was violating the
constitution by going to war without congressional approval. Obviously, Obama is
either senile, or has a double standard when it comes to his own actions, but
nevertheless he is wrong and could be impeached for this. He certainly can be
tried by an International Criminal Court for his actions in attacking and
killing people in Libya and creating hundreds of thousands of refugees by this
Obama, Cameron and Sarkozy all have violated the UN resolution,
Geneva Conventions, UN Law, and their own constitutions. They should all resign,
and let the world live in peace, for the world has had enough of their
warmongering in Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Grenada, VietNam,
Korea, Chile, Venezuela, Cuba -- and the list goes on, not to mention the way
the American government has treated the Native Americans, the Africans, the
African Americans, the Japanese, the Germans during WWI, the Muslims and the
Yes, it is time for these three "leaders," Sarkozy,
Cameron and Obama, to step back -- or step down -- before they do more mischief in the world, and
end up killing more people, wrecking more countries and creating more
