Iraq I, Afghanistan, Iraq II, Pakistan, and now Libya where the United States just opened a third front in the Arab and Muslim world. The savage bombing of this sovereign nation of no threat to ours started on March 19th, anniversary of the ill-fated 'shock and awe' strategy against Iraq in 2003.
It was preceded by a massive propaganda campaign whereby Colonel Gaddafi was turned from a cooperative ally into a blood-thirsty foe overnight. As with Iraq, this is a strategic and oil-grabbing one-sided colonial conflict aptly described as 'medieval'.
Because it is a Democratic war, it has to have a 'humanitarian' flavor to rally the faithful, especially women. The sadistic excuse for decimating the Libyan people from 10,000 feet up is, therefore, to 'protect' them. President Obama even boasts of having saved imaginary millions from an imaginary massacre, a fitting stand from an imaginary 'peace' recipient.
In fact, Obama's Arab-saving show is on par with the non-existing WMD in Iraq II, the false 'genocide' in Yugoslavia, the babyless incubators in Iraq I, the 9/11 Afghan caper and the phantom Vietnamese boats. Those who believe him do and those who don't, don't. Both are politically powerless anyway.
It is unfortunate that this new Arab-loving impulse did not kick in when Israel, with full Obama support, flattened Gaza in 2009 , killing and maiming thousands. It had the right to 'defend itself' the mantra went, the only country in this part of the world allowed such privilege. Obama's foreign-policy-from-the-heart flew over Bahrain (a US-military post), Yemen and Saudi Arabia where pro-democracy demonstrators are currently mowed down.
In Libya, the US, trailed by servile Britain and France, is fully engaged on the side of 'rebels', a disorganized rag-tag of a group whose identities have been kept secret although their ranks have been packed with Western special forces and secret agents for months. Equally mysterious is the timing and the urgency of the attacks.
The whole thing is a farce. What is not a farce is that greedy Western powers are back in their criminal saddle; that B-2 bunker busters are dropping tons of depleted uranium on the population, civilians or not, as if radiation from Japan was not enough to poison the globe; that soldiers defending their nation are incinerated for sport and that we are once again subjected to the gagging display of false news, fake polls, pompous Zionist liars, retired military with no information, armchair strategists and various self-proclaimed experts.
A string of supposed 'raped' and 'abused' women and girls should pop up anytime along with mutilated corpses and other well-planned 'proofs' of Gaddafian 'unspeakable' atrocities to rally the skeptics.
DullesNOW is of course against this latest 'war' but our options are few. We could issue another toothless call to 'Stop the War Now' and/or claim we joined the US anti-war movement, that long-dead horse save for a handful of libertarians and true non-partisan patriots of all stripes.
The only thing that can really be done is to place full responsibility where full responsibility lies: the Oval office, and impeach Barack Obama.
For this unilateral war is simply unconstitutional. It is illegal and immoral and therefore criminal, notwithstanding the grotesque UN edict hastily pasted by an 'International Community' bereft of Germany, India, Russia, China, Brazil, most of South America and most of Africa, that is bereft of the majority of the world.
It is a good opportunity for Americans to cleanse an increasingly abusive political system and to perhaps harness the interventionist folly directly responsible for today's devastation of our nation, the massive loss of jobs, homes, savings and lives.
A warning to future presidents, impeachment is the only way to corral out-of-control lawmakers and to return America to her rightful path as nothing can be expected of the two major and deeply corrupt political parties.
The DullesNOW Executive Committee has therefore unanimously voted to call for the impeachment of Barack Obama and for such proceedings to start without delay.
