…..and more evidence that Samantha Power’s ‘Responsibility to Protect’ has gone very wrong.
Update June 4, and more gruesome evidence of Obama’s Arab Spring disaster.
I know I’m beating a dead horse, but want to be sure you all get the message. Look to the three “humanitarian Vulcans” (Samantha Power, Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton) to blame for the destabilization of Africa.
Here is an article in Al-Ahram Weekly (an Egyptian publication) that blasts the US/Europe for among other things creating an even larger refugee crisis in Africa than had already existed.
The scale of the ongoing tragedy visited on Libya by NATO and its allies is becoming horribly clearer with each passing day. Estimates of those killed so far vary, but 50,000 seems to be a low estimate. Indeed, the British Ministry of Defence was boasting that the onslaught had killed 35,000 as early as last May, and this number is constantly growing, as the destruction of Libyan state forces by the British, French and American blitzkrieg has left the country in a state of total anarchy.
Even more indicative of the contempt for the rule of law amongst the members of the new government — a government, remember, which has yet to receive any semblance of popular mandate and whose only power base remains foreign armed forces — is Law 38. This guarantees immunity from prosecution for anyone who committed crimes aimed at “promoting or protecting the revolution”.
This is the reality of the new Libya: civil war, squandered resources, and societal collapse, where voicing a preference for the days when Libya was prosperous and at peace is a crime, but lynching and torture are not only permitted, but also encouraged.
Nor has the disaster remained a national one. Libya’s destabilisation has already spread to Mali, prompting a coup, and huge numbers of refugees, especially amongst Libya’s large black migrant population, have fled to neighbouring countries in a desperate attempt to escape both aerial destruction and lynch mob rampage, putting pressure on resources and stoking tensions elsewhere. Many Libyan fighters, their work done in Libya, have now been shipped to Syria to spread their sectarian violence there also.
The writer, Dan Glazebrook, goes on to charge that this is all part of a new military colonialism of Africa. He points out that the US already has advance military units in the Central African Republic, Uganda, South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. He doesn’t say it, but we have troops in Somalia and in Kenya as well.
I don’t know if this is all part of a military colonialism plan hatched in the White House, but we can all agree that Africa is worse off (for everyone but the Muslim Brotherhood) after the Arab Spring then before it began. And, I, for one, see no value in American sons and daughters dying in that hellhole!
Nor do we need to bring more “refugees” here.
