Uncle Bomb’s Cabin

Uncle Bomb’s Cabin

Despite a rain of anti-human catastrophe iron, the defiant Colonel Gadaffi steadfastly remains in his tented compound in Tripoli, unwilling to give up the goats, so to speak. Meanwhile, President Obombya faces the nation with his latest convenient explanations for treating the Constitution of the United States like a three-dollar bill.  But Robert Gates, his loose-lipped Secretary of Defense, has already let Obombya’s Libyan cat out of the bag:

“It was not — it was not a vital national interest to the United States, but it was an interest,” he said in a joint appearance with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Well, slap my butt and call me Nancy.  Hey Bob, most folks would find a stack of extra cash ‘interesting’ too, but we’re not out robbing banks to get one–and we’re not bombing supermarkets to protect the grocery stores on the corner:

“There was another piece of this though, that certainly was a consideration. You’ve had revolutions on both the east and the west of Libya,” [Gates] said, noting that refugees fleeing Libya could overwhelm Tunisia and Egypt.

“So you had a potentially significantly destabilizing event taking place in Libya that put at risk potentially the revolutions in both Tunisia and Egypt,” Gates said, adding: “Egypt is central to the future of the Middle East.”

So we’re targeting Benghazi to protect Tunis and Cairo?  Where, coincidentally,

Islamic media is reporting on a conference to be held this Sunday at a Cairo hotel and which brings together an unusual and significant number of participants from the Global Muslim Brotherhood, the Egyptian Brotherhood, and other Islamist movements. According to an Arabic language report on the Islam Today website, itself associated with Saudi Islamist Salman Al-Awda, the conference is titled “The Awakening in light of the political changes in the Arab world: Egypt and Tunisia as models” and is sponsored by the International Forum of the Wasatiya”, a previously unknown group.

Or maybe we’re just paying back our loyal buddies in NATO. Says Mde. Hillary:

[...] “we asked our allies, our NATO allies, to go into Afghanistan with us 10 years ago. They have been there, and a lot of them have been there despite the fact they were not attacked. The attack came on us, as we all tragically remember. They stuck with us. When it comes to Libya, we started hearing from the U.K., France, Italy, other of our NATO allies.”

On the other hand, it’s possible that nobody knows why the hell we’re in Libya:

“We don’t make decisions on interventions based on consistency or precedent.”–Deputy National Security Adviser Denis McDonough

Obombya himself, who always talks a good game when in sight of a decent teleprompter, insists he sent in the jets at the last minute because of a desire to save “countless” civilian lives.  Well, okay. But good intentions do not trump the U.S. Constitution or allow the president to violate his oath of office.  There’s more than one outlaw regime involved in this adventure.

    I agree with the above statements.
    On a local note, the KC-135s are back, after nursing the B-2s over and back across the pond.
    Two more years of Obama I feel will only serve to solidify radical Islam’s entrenchment into the middle east.
    The muslim brotherhood will defeat the likes of the Obama regime because Obama is a short sighted fool.
    He is afraid of offending the obvious opposition we face.
    He again is ‘present’.
    A dithering child does not belong in charge of our Country.

  2. Bob Mack says:

    Apparently even some moderate Arabs agree, AFVET. From Rightside News:

    In this article in al-Sharq al-Awsat (translated by MEMRI), a Saudi-controlled but also relatively liberal newspaper, Tariq al-Homayed, the chief editor, expresses the combination of shock and horror at the Obama Administration. The conflict was hot over Egypt and even hotter over Bahrain , where the Saudis want the current regime to survive and U.S. officials have criticized Saudi intervention.

    Indeed, he complains, the statements coming from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, sound “more like what we’d expect to hear from the Iranian foreign minister.” The “contradictory statements coming out of Washington have become more than merely perplexing; they are also suspicious.”

    Why suspicious? Because it isn’t clear whether the U.S. government is more concerned about stopping revolutionary Islamism or undermining those who oppose it, more interested in containing Iran or letting Tehran ‘s influence spread, supporting moderate Arab countries or overthrowing their regimes.

      The efforts of the regime to confuse us is obvious, and they have succeeded to an extent.
      It all started during Obama’s campaign.
      I wasn’t confused, were you ?
      Now we have Clinton and Gates debating each other on national TV.
      More confusion.
      What will it take to make America understand that Obama is nothing more than a coddled puss, incapable of making a decision pertaining to the potential deaths of the brave Americans that are nothing more than political pawns in his nefarious efforts to be re-elected.

      This pissants wife has 43 ‘attendants’, WTF ?????

      If this ain’t the closest this country has ever been to what our forefathers designed the Constitution to prevent, … I don’t know what is.
      The power of the Constitution is being tested.
      Franklin said, ‘we have given you a REPUBLIC, if you can keep it.’

      Wake up America.

        I like that quote. I might have to use it to head up a post one of these days. The only thing I was confused about during Obombya’s campaign was how in hell anybody was buying into his puerile American Idol, left-wing bullsh**t.

  3. Obama doesn’t give a damn about our Constitution. Therein lies the primary problem of this outlaw administration.

  4. I fear this is his “Shah” moment… except on some weird steroid/hgh/horse tranquilizer combo that hasn’t yet been invented. Even Zombie Helen Keller’s like, “dude… there’s a caliphate coming”.

    NBC’s Jim Maceda from Libya (via Newsbusters):

    I can tell you that the whole, the atmospherics here of the government officials and minders is very different. They had gone to ground for a number of days: very quiet, very tense. They’re looking much more themselves: much more bellicose, much more defiant in the past 24 hours. I would think, it’s an educated guess but I would say that Gaddafi, after hearing that speech, of course it wasn’t on Libyan TV but anyone with satellite television could have watched it, that the regime now is feeling a lot better. That they’re feeling that they dodged a bullet. If NATO’s taking over, they like that. They’ve got much better relations with NATO than with the United States in general. And they love the idea that the US position as stated by Obama is that they’re not looking for regime change. Soon as he heard that, I’m sure Gaddafi was quite excited. He thinks he can probably negotiate his way out of this as he has over the past 41 years in other situations.

  6. all I can do is speculate, Bob. I think it all has to do with planning for the future. Once The Muslim Brotherhood of Nations is securly established in that region _ well then we can have us a really big war. And then from out of the ashes will come the New World Order. I’m probably wrong though, so don’t worry.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Well, Jim, wherever you look these days, you find the hoofprints of George Soros (Obama cites Soros-funded doctrine to justify bombing Libya)

      In his address to the nation yesterday, President Obama cited a military doctrine funded by billionaire philanthropist George Soros as the main justification for U.S. and international air-strikes against Libya.

      Aside from directly citing the doctrine, Obama alluded to the Soros-funded military principle four more times in his 28-minute speech explaining why he decided to intervene in Libya.

      The origins of the military doctrine cited by Obama yesterday went unreported by news media.

    wow Bob..that toon says it all! happy midweek my friend~!:)..how pathetic is this nation to accept this tyrant and his whims!

    • Bob Mack says:

      Hi ANGEL. Saw this in Conservative Examiner. Anthony Martin talks about

      the ominous alliance between Leftists and extemist Muslims who share one common goal–total domination of society by government, a domination that involves restrictions on free speech and assembly, freedom of religion and of the press.

      [...] First there was the massive upheaval in Egypt resulting in the deposing of dictator Hosni Mubarak, who had led the nation since the assassination of Anwar Sadat in the early 1980s. The Obama Administration and the mainstream media claimed that the upheaval was the work of ‘freedom fighters’ who longed for ‘democracy,’ when it fact, as we now know, the Muslim Brotherhood was waiting in the wings to take full advantage of the upheaval to mount a power-grab. We also now know that international labor unions were key to the discontent, working in tandem with Muslim extremists.

      The same scenario has played out all over the Middle East, from Tunisia to Lebanon, from Syria to Qatar, and from Yemen to Libya. In Libya we now know that the ‘rebels’ seeking to depose Qaddafi include members of Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.

      Similarly, in Europe labor unions have taken to the streets to protest cutbacks in entitlements which have long contributed to the financial woes of the continent, bringing a half dozen or more European nations to the point of default. And, it is no coincidence that for years Muslims have infiltrated European nations, setting up pockets where Sharia Law is followed–all with the blessing of extremist Leftists who push ‘multiculturalism.’
