President Obama: He’s Right and Wrong on Libya

March 24, 2011

Silverwolf is exceedingly glad that the British, French, and Americans read his last blog, recommending air action against Muther Qaddafi in order to avert huge massacres of civilians. Within twelve hours, they were following his advice, although he did state that America should not participate, due to the hatred felt towards her in the Middle East. America’s comparative silence in the face of daily massacres of peaceful protesters in virtually every Arab and Gulf capital is probably regarded as the usual way things run by the man in the Arab Street, and our hypocrisy in acting on Libya, but doing nothing about Bahrain and Saudi Arabian Human Rights Atrocities, not to mention our long support for Torturer Mubarak, shows how much the Administration “really cares about people”. We said that Britain, France, the Arab League, and those responsible for economically propping up Qaddafi, like Italy and Germany, were the forces that should be the ones engaged in overthrowing this Miscreant and Mass Murderer and Torturer, but that Silverwolf would not object if America joined in the force, either alone or through NATO, for he holds that genocide or mass murder of civilian populations are the responsibility of all Libertarians on the face of the Earth. However, when we talk of regimes that are comparatively mildly repressive (say, a regime that jailed political dissidents but did not engaging in murder or torture) then holding off on military action that could cost the lives of thousands of innocent soldiers and civilians versus a wait of a few years for a regime to economically crumble or internally reform may be a far better way to go. But in cases of outright genocide and mass murder of civilian populations  like Germany, Uganda, Turkey, Rwanda, Cambodia, Bosnia, Darfur-Sudan, the shelling of Sarajevo, and Qaddafi’s War on Libya’s Youth, it clearly is better for the individuals being murdered if the world intervenes and saves their lives, rather than standing around with its thumb up its ear.

Silverwolf believes that Jefferson’s Constitution was meant as a blueprint for all Mankind, and all civil governments, and he thinks that Jefferson believed these Rights he reserved for men were Universal Natural Rights, and not just confined to those living on the American continent.

Where the President is wrong on Libya is simply that he did not go to Congress for a Declaration of War, and even if he had, there is no obvious way that Libya is a threat to the borders of the United States, or her sovereignty, and so, even if the President had gone to Congress for a Declaration, he should not in theory have been given it. Ron Paul is absolutely right when he says that the President should have gone to  Congress for a Declaration, and that he, Ron Paul,  would have voted against it. Britain, France and NATO, as well as the big commercial backers of Libya like Italy and Germany, along with the Arab League, were the ones who really had the immediate responsibility for the mess in the neighborhood, and they certainly have the financial resources to carry out an operation. They could also enlist and organize into a fighting force any Libertarian-inclined freedom fighters in the area who want to help liberate Libya from Qaddafi. This would have been much more practical than having America overthrow its Constitution yet once again with the unConstitutional “War Powers Act”. And the damage done to the principle of the President consulting with Congress for this most grave move is far greater than any kudos America might earn in the eyes of the North African Youth for joining in the coalition. Once again President Obama has punched the U.S. Constitution in the face.

So, in sum, we are glad that the international coalition has got the lead out of its elbow and acted to prevent mass murder, at least in Benghazi. But we are very disappointed, though not surprised, that the President has, once again, trashed the Constitution and the principle of American non-interventionism unless our borders are under immediate threat

Heap not a furnace for your foe so hot that it do singe yourself.

NATO Fiddles While Qaddafi Burns

March 17, 2011

The namby-pamby whimps of NATO and the UN are once again flapping their lips in useless impotence, as the War Criminal Mahmzer Qaddafi continues to burn and murder the Youth of Libya. Just as the Old Ladies of the League of Nations were impotent in the face of Fascist Murder when the War Criminal Mussolini was butchering the Ethiopians in the days of Haile Selassie,  we can see that, 80 years later, the old Castrati politicians and the Immorality of Northern Europe and the Arab League have not changed one iota.

The Libertarian Revolution in Libya is being left to flaunder by the regimes that were supposedly founded on Libertarian Revolutions — Cromwellian England, post-Bourbon France, and post-Georgian America. And now all three stand by and have all the potency of a Mrs. Clinton and Mrs. Merkel and Ms. Gizzard-Down-Under, in the face of the “nos” of Valery Puta, and the Dictator and Occupier of Tibet.  The Children of Libya are being abandoned to a cruel death when, if the politicians were so to choose,  the Harrier-Hawkers and Mirages of Britain and France could strike a blow for Liberty in a few short hours that would redound through the centuries. But the “great Democracies” are ruled by gutless politicians, not Libertarians bent on extending the Cromwellian and French Revolutions, not to mention the Jeffersonian Revolution, to all of Mankind.

Early in the American Revolution, Jefferson and his cohorts discussed the necessity of attempting to procure foreign assistance and backing in their fight for Independence. Those who always mention the Forefathers warning against entangling alliances, fail to mention that America was not shy is seeking to secure such foreign succor and assistance in her battle for Independence. Now that other peoples are crying out for Jeffersonian Liberty, it seems only fair that America should provide what support it can (short of direct military intervention, given how much it is reviled in the North African and Arab worlds, due to the $100s of billions in aid its Liberal Democrats have given to the Arab Fascist Regimes). Such intervention should be left up to the chief proppers-up of the War Criminal Qaddafi (remember Chad?), the European and Arab powers who have forged the closest economic ties with the Butcher of Benghazi.

Silverwolf hopes the Euro-whimps, and the NATO Castrati, will finally get their fingers out of their earholes and do something to help Liberty triumph in North Africa, instead of their usual do-nothing tongue exercises while massacres are taking place. Diplomacy may be about expensive bottled water, catered dinners, and “frank discussions”, for the well-paid, well-fed diplomats, but for the thousands with untreated wounds in Libya, or the tens of thousands cowering in fear in their hovels, because of the violence of one Fascist Miscreant and his Mercenaries in the face of a Castrated World, — for them, diplomacy is a matter of Life and Death. And it seems that the Euro-pigs have left the Youth of Libya to the latter.

What is happening in Libya is the responsibility of the Europeans, of all Libertarians, and of all Human Beings. NATO and America should not stand by idly fiddling while the Miscreant and Criminal Moammar Qaddafi burns the Youth of Libya.

If Qaddafi re-instates his Reign of Terror, then please remember the names and faces of the countries and politicians who did not act. Their names and nations will live long in the annals of historical infamy.

The Brushfires of Liberty will Liberate Libya yet.
