Islamist militants armed with antiaircraft weapons and rocket-propelled grenades stormed a lightly defended United States diplomatic mission in Benghazi late Tuesday, killing the American ambassador and three members of his staff... (From the International Herald Tribune of Sept/12/2012)
I have maintained from the start that America and the West would pay dearly from supporting the removal of Mr Hosni Mubarak, a staunch friend and ally of the West, and Muammar Gaddafi, the devil they knew. Both men were long time rulers in the wild and volatile Middle East.
Mr Obama, the consummate person of political expediency, did not even allow Mr Mubarak to leave office with US help and insistence, but was told unceremoniously for the world to hear, to leave office by Mr Obama.
He was allowed to be jailed despite all that he has done for the United States, the West and Israel. The devil they knew was in Mr Maummar Gaddaffi of Libya, who even though he came in from the cold and disbanded Libya’s nuclear program, they allowed to be toppled, against his warning that it was an Al Qaeda inspired uprising.
The then French president Sarkozy, whom is it alleged that Mr Gaddaffi donated $5 million to his initial campaign as president, had French war planes bombing Libya before the United States was even ready to begin operations. Both countries aided the rebels with logistics, enforcement of the no-fly zone, bombing raids and flooded the country with arms, including lot and lots anti-aircrafts guns mounted on the backs of trucks.
The American Embassy in Libya security was breached on Tuesday and four killed, including the ambassador. One of the weapons of choice in these attacks was anti-aircraft guns, which are all over Libya. Egypt is about to explode in the face of the Western countries in the coming months; I am sure today’s attack is an omen of foreboding for the days ahead. The Muslim Brotherhood is in power and is anti-United States and anti-Western; their views on Israel are well documented.
It is my contention that, because Mr Obama is so politically driven, this is what happens, when you turn your back on a friend like Mr Mubarak for the sake of cheap political gain. The enemy you bought in from the cold, Mr Ghadaffi, was then double crossed, driven from power with the help of the United States and Western powers and then summarily executed without trial by his captors. Libya today is unstable and ungovernable and divided along tribal lines. They were warned about this by Saif al-Islam Gaddafi during the uprising.
The ultimate insult for the United States is that an Al Qaeda flag raised in the front of the United State embassy was achieved with the use of the same weapons sent to overthrow Mr Ghadaffi, by the United States and the West. This all sounds similar to Mr Ahmed Chalabi in Iraq and the Iranian rise to dominance in that country because the United States and Britain invaded for selfish political gain under his influence, only to find out that he was an operative of Iran.
Ironically, if Bashar al-Assad falls, as the United States wants because of his alliance with Iran, then the bottom would have fallen out for the United States and NATO countries in the Middle East. Because his fall likewise would have been Al Qaeda orchestrated and the salafist would have won.
All hell is about to break loose in the Middle East, the Arab Spring is about to become the Arab storm for all Christians in the region because they will be slaughtered and Israel will be in a fight for its literal life. That Arab storm will be approaching the West from the East, category Armageddon.
