And I think there are "thousands of citizens of those countries who fought, lost family and friends, and saw their own..." extremist citizens backed
by foreign govt's ..."murdering their fellow citizens, would disagree with you."
I don't think that they can't do it themselves. In the post I said I wished they'd be left alone to do it themselves.
I think they did not do it themselves. In any country you will find extremists who wish to overthrow the govt. As mentioned above, here in North
America as well. It is usually more for their own interests and wish for power than for any altruistic feeling to return power to the people. If, for
example, an outside force came in and armed and funded the Republicans to overthrow Obama, would you celebrate that? Would a NATO type bombing of the
country actually help anyone, besides for the party who wants to take power? Do you think the people would be better off? Do you think the Republicans
would be doing it 'for the people' or would they be doing it for themselves and their interests? And what about the outside force, what do they get
out of it? Would it really be for the benefit of the US citizens?
Ask yourself this- do you think the media lies to you? I'm sure you're aware they do. Why then are they pushing this so hard on us? Because it is 'the
right thing to do'? I think not. The only leaders they ever seem to want to remove are the ones who won't bow down to their pressure. The ones who
have or want to nationalize the country's resources for the benefit of it's own people, not outside investors. Or don't have/won't allow central
banks. Or want to get off the petrodollar, or even just trade in other currencies as well as the petrodollar. Over and over again this is shown to
have been the case. What makes you think anything is different now?
I can't say I know for certain, but I am pretty sure.
I could be succumbing to propaganda, the information that tells me that Libya is not better off, it is in complete ruins and chaos; and that many in
Syria, while they may not like Assad, certainly don't want a NATO solution.
I do know our media lies to us, and I know that when we meddle in other countries, it is always for our benefit, not theirs. I know we're being told
we're 'spreading freedom and democracy' and that is NOT what we're doing at all. We have less and less of it ourselves. I don't take anything as 'the
gospel'. I read from different sources and weigh it out in my mind, as well as contrasting it to what I KNOW is the lies we are getting from our own
Google it yourself and see what you find - "Lies about Gaddafi", "Lies about Libya", "Lies about Syria", etc.
Here are some of the sources I get info from:
Tony Cartalucci, Lizzie Phelan, Robert Fisk, John Pilger, Thierry Meyssan, Paul Craig Roberts, SyrianGirl
Land Destroyer, Global Research, Voltaire Network, Pennyforyourthoughtsblogspot
Here is a book about a different take on what happened in Libya as well, though I haven't read it yet, by a former US Congresswoman.
