Standing by while the Libyan rebels are butchered by Khaddafi is cowardly and foolish. It will invite MORE bloodshed and repression around the world as evil rulers realize they have nothing to fear from the U.S. and world community!
Libyan rebels have been crying out for help and might have expected it to come from the United States. After all, it was just two weeks ago when President Obama declared:
“With respect to our willingness to engage militarily, … I’ve instructed the Department of Defense … to examine a full range of options. I don’t want us hamstrung. … Going forward, we will continue to send a clear message: The violence must stop. Muammar Gaddafi has lost legitimacy to lead, and he must leave.”Since then, nothing. No help, nothing.
Like every other serious, recent issue requiring U.S. leadership Barack Hussein Obama has been AWOL. But his failure to lead isn't just an embarrassment to the U.S., it means that thousands of people in places like Libya will soon be dead because we failed to act in time.
Cue the player below to the 1:35 mark to hear one Libyan in the rebel held zone as he talks about the need for U.S. support NOW!
Is it possible that Obama will let one of America's worst enemies, a man who is guilty of murdering Americans, stay in power and get away with butchering his own people too?
