As I've said, new is not necessarily better. Yes Mubarak and Gaddafi were bad evil men. But are the people of Egypt and Libya any better off with their replacements? Israel is wondering the same thing.
In the case of the Libyan rebels here's a shocker: some are al Qaeda!!! Gee, and I thought there were only a handful of AQ left! Or so the left and Doc would have us believe. Although, I do have to ask, since when did AQ keep a membership roster so we'd know how many there were?????
Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, the Libyan rebel leader, has said jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq are on the front lines of the battle against Muammar Gaddafi's regime.
And since when do we have money to help ANYONE these days? We should not have gone in there, we didn't for Iran, Rwanda, Darfur, Egypt, so why for Libya? Oil ya say. Even though Libya only supplies about 2% of the worlds oil and almost nothing directly to the US, many critics will claim this is yet again a war for oil.
Tunisia? That's only 260,000 barrels A YEAR!!! That's nothing.
So, again, why Libya? Maybe there really is something to this United Nations "Responsibility To Protect" Doctrine. I may have more on that later.
