I know quite a bit about Libya, for example. It has the highest standard of living in all of Africa. The life expectancy is just a few years short of the United States. It is has the 3rd highest GDP PPP per capita. Tripoli was described as a city right out of the future. All young adults are given free education and money to start a family and buy a house. They were developing something even the West cannot create, a man made river running about a thousand miles from the water tables under the Sahara desert up to the cities along the Mediterranean coast. And he was even using his non-Rothschild owned central bank to actually make his country wealthier. If you really wanted to say something about Qaddafi it was that he implemented the only true Socialist policies in world history... and they worked.

But regardless of how they did work his country seriously lacked press freedom, civil rights, privacy rights, political freedoms, and restrained law. While they might have been very wealthy living in cities that look decades more advanced than New York or London you cannot make up for a lack of liberty no matter how hard you try.

Why should the American Public fund this war?
Why are we there anyway ? Why havnt we pulled out of all the wars were in? The elite sure know how to play a game of chess. Human pawns always lose though.

Good insight...

but do you justify the rebellion and outright Western interferance just because of what you perceive to be a lack of liberty?

There is also little liberty in North Korea. At the same time, there is virtually no outside interferance in North Korean affairs. The lack of liberty in this world of globalization is a small price to pay just to save your own heritage, culture, nationality, and sovereignty; at least in my opinion anyways.

Besides, what liberty do you think will now come about in Libya? The rebels are directly linked to the Muslim Brotherhood; they are brutal and have been reported as engaging in Khmer Rouge-like tactics such as arbitrary checkpoints and brutal beatings (at least of the African population).

And how do you think Libya will survive if the rebels succeed in regime change? They already have central banks and are highly praised by IMF leaders. The world bank and IMF, both globalist institutions, will lend them money and Libya will live in crushing poverty and exploitation, just like in Indonesia.

Just wait and see. If the rebels succeed (which they probably will since the West is directly backing these terrorists), then most Libyans will be producing brand new Nike shoes for 90 cents a day, 18 hours a day, and go home to eat and sleep in their shacks.

I would encourage you to search through my previous posts on the subject if you have the time so as to fully understand my position. But to sum it up in the least amount of words possible: what happens anywhere outside American borders that does not threaten American sovereignty right now and directly is no business of ours. Therefor I condemn Obama even holding press conferences specifically for foreign revolutions let alone intervening in them.

Besides, what liberty do you think will now come about in Libya?

I do not think any new liberty will come about I do not even see these rebels as revolutionaries just raging anti-government extremist groups linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. Us endorsing them is like Iran endorsing Communist Revolutionaries in our country, it would be disgusting!

And how do you think Libya will survive if the rebels succeed in regime change?

Libya will slip into poverty, virginity testing, sharia law, political extremism, pan-islamism, and regression.

Check out some of my threads on this subject:

here we go again with a policy that will bite us in the ass later.. its like they are purposely securing our future of constant warfare. who decides these policies??

Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, the Libyan rebel leader, has said jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq are on the front lines of the battle against Muammar Gaddafi's regime.

Mr al-Hasidi admitted he had earlier fought against "the foreign invasion" in Afghanistan, before being "captured in 2002 in Peshwar, in Pakistan". He was later handed over to the US, and then held in Libya before being released in 2008.

US and British government sources said Mr al-Hasidi was a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, or LIFG, which killed dozens of Libyan troops in guerrilla attacks around Derna and Benghazi in 1995 and 1996.

so we are funding known terrorist murderers. sounds about right.[editb y]edit on 8-5-2011 by turbokid because: forgot a link
