Libya Buffoonery

November 3, 2012

EDIT: I made this blog in response to some of the buffoonery I have seen over the past few weeks. I dedicated it to two former teachers of mine who are extremely conservative. In the blog I used extreme and profane language that while I hold dear my right to say, should of not of been directed at my two former teachers. For that, I do apologize. My points still remain as truth, and with this I wish all of us can at least agree on a center reality on which to base our opinions on and turn the page.

Libya & the Middle East–

People who were obviously asleep for the past decade, but have suddenly woken up during these past four years. To you I say,

“Welcome!”

Since I am talking to people who pay attention to little more then Glenn Beck and the rest of the Fox Nation and who are CONVINCED that President Obama is a Muslim socialist that was not even born in this country, I will have to bring this one down.

Way down.

Since I will be talking to people who believe in their heart of hearts that President Obama is actively pursuing legislation that will kill babies and eat their black hearts for no other simple reason other then he hates babies AND America, I will have to lower the bar.

Sigh— So, let’s get on with this.

The main¬†rationale¬†for all of Bush’s wars- after 9/11- was to promote democracy in hopes for a more stable Middle East in which we can trade freely and buy up oil without having to deal with dictators who destroy their own citizens and¬†guarantee¬†the safety of American citizens in the process. It was a good plan if you are into that sort of thing… The only problem was that President Bush and the Republican party at the time was GROSSLY under qualified to lead such a gigantic undertaking. President Bush believed that he was being led by the hand of God and if he just followed through, then everything would work out. That kind of thought process would be understandable if you are studying for a test or going on a date but UNFORTUNATELY¬†for us it was far from anything that resembled steady leadership in the region.

So, elections have consequences. Because of that, thousands are dead, our country has massive debt, and President Obama was left to salvage what he could. So, now that other Arab countries are ousting their dictators at an alarming rate (It’s called the ARAB SPRING for a reason) which remember- was EXACTLY what we wanted to do in the first place, now has created a power¬†vacuum¬†in some areas that bad people want to fill. Namely Al-Qaeda.

And so, on September 11th 2012, capitalizing on a perceived opening in a turbulent troubled region, the before mentioned group launched an attack on our embassies in Benghazi. In the attack, four Americans had died. It is troublesome, it is terrible, it is sad.

But is it President Obama’s fault as so artfully expressed in this facebook status?

I guess the answer is yes, the exact same way President Bush was DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR NOT PREVENTING THE ATTACK ON SEPT 11TH 2001.

I¬†guess those same people who blame Obama on the Benghazi attacks with such FUROR hold the President to a much higher standard then¬†President¬†Bush. Completely understandable. I too hold our current President to a much higher standard precisely because he doesn’t walk around wearing his ass for a hat. Let’s not forget the many attacks we had on U.S. Embassies we had under President George W. Bush, aka “He-Who-MustNot-Be-Named”¬†Republican¬†extraordinaire. Here’s a list for the most dense among us:

June 14, 2002, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Suicide bomber kills 12 and injures 51.

February 20, 2003, international diplomatic compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Truck bomb kills 17.

February 28, 2003, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Gunmen on motorcycles killed two consulate guards.

July 30, 2004, U.S. embassy in Taskkent, Uzbekistan
Suicide bomber kills two.

December 6, 2004, U.S. consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
Militants stormed and occupied perimeter wall. Five killed, 10 wounded.

March 2, 2006, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Suicide car bomber killed four, including a U.S. diplomate directly targeted by the assailants.

September 12, 2006, U.S. embassy in Damascus, Syria
Gunmen attacked embassy with grenades, automatic weapons, and a car bomb (though second truck bomb failed to detonate). One killed and 13 wounded.

January 12, 2007, U.S. embassy in Athens, Greece
A rocket-propelled grenade was fired at the embassy building. No one was injured.

July 9, 2008, U.S. consulate in Istanbul, Turkey
Armed men attacked consulate with pistols and shotguns. Three policemen killed.

March 18, 2008, U.S. embassy in Sana’a, Yemen

So what’s the point? The point is simply this: Pointing to Obama as a bad president by¬†repeatedly¬†bringing up this desperate line of attack to show the President’s weakness is laughable at best and just plain disgusting at worst. Face it. President Obama has been a success in almost every measure, even with almost every possible variable designed to tear him down. It’s time to own up, put up, and shut up. No attacks by¬†foreign¬†entities on American soil. Economy is humming again.¬†Government¬†is streamlined. We are down one major war. I can go on, and on, and on.

No, let me just throw this link up.

Enough is enough. I had to come to the harsh realization that the President is governing from a very right of center mentality after thinking he would be a progressive. It’s time for all you conservatives to admit you were wrong as well. Actually, it’s well beyond time. I’m sorry if I made you mad. I am sorry if I made you cry- but it is what it is.

 

Good night.

p.s. sorry.
