Comments on: Why is Obama giving Libya to the Russians? http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2011/07/19/why-is-obama-giving-libya-to-the-russians/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: coyotle http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2011/07/19/why-is-obama-giving-libya-to-the-russians/#comment-35558 Sat, 23 Jul 2011 04:04:22 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=9573#comment-35558 mheld45 are you aware of the News Corporation scandal? The chief of the Wall Street Journal(a Murdoch holding) and president of the Dow just resigned. The FBI(incompetent) and the Justice Department(corrupt) are investigating News Corp.’s activities in the States. Corporate America and government is a Swiss Cheese of conflict of interests and loop holes. Swiss cheese smells and tastes a whole lot better.

He is giving the initiative to Putin, who, as Mr.Bolton states in his article,will be able to shape Lybia’s future and the middle east’s future, to the benefit of Russia.

Obama intends to destroy the US economy,it’s power and influence in the world and it’s realtionship with western powers. He is preparing the road for Putin, the antichrist, to dominate Europe and the middle east by force with China’s help in the very near future.

Spoken like a true war-monger. Do you really take yourself seriously when you like so many other pundits throw away diplomacy? I implore you to go get a weapon and fly to Libya to fight should your article be taken seriously by the U.S Government. It’s much easier for you to sit there and say “INVADE INVADE INVADE” when you are safe behind a computer.

Do you seriously believe that the almighty United States is the only nation on earth that can solve a dispute like so many Americans do?

Let Russia talk to them at least they don’t need oil like the U.S does.

For people like you the Cold war is not over, you seek conflict because you see no other way to solve a dispute.

Regarding NATO, it is a relic from a time when there was a use for it, it remains as a political tool when its purpose was to counter a now defunct Warsaw Pact.

Scrap the outdated alliance in favor of a modern defense collective.

Mentions of role of incentives by big pharmas to doctors and shrinks.
But maybe the epidemic of psychosis is from GWB time, and Bolton on Fox, and more News, and more …

Neither one of you are competent enough to run a car wash much less offer up your constant (yet never solicited) ill-conceived at best, to just plain wrong perceptions on foreign policy.

Next up- Charles Manson pens article on making lasting relationships.

After 2 weeks, perhaps US may default and the economy will again fall into recession. Try to improve your own country instead of whining about bygone Cold war stuffs.

France got what they wanted – they looted the Libyan treasury, and they’re ready to quit the “no fly zone” now. Italy says they’re done with this war. Germany wanted nothing to do with it from the start. Turkey is drooling at the prospects of running a post-war Libya and restarting the Ottomon empire. The Rebels (or is it the government?) took mass casualties today trying to take Brega from the Qadaffi forces.

Qadaffi continues to say as he did from day one that he’s willing to negotiate an internationally supervised national election process to establish a democratic government and a transition of power if he and/or his son loses the election – it’s the “Rebels” who refuse to talk and seem to want only to reestablish the British created “Monarchy” with no basis in democracy and stuff the Libya Treasury and Sovereign’s fund into their Swiss bank accounts.

Qadaffi has been Russia’s guy up until about 7 years ago – just when he was showing signs of warming up to NATO, NATO sucker punches him and misses.

He has a history of radical comments, often political and ideologically based. Examples go from backing Dick Cheney’s myth of weapons of mass destruction, to create a reason for the Iraqi war, to incident after incident, his statements proven with time to be wrong.

Many credible people simply take his public statement and assume that the opposite must be true, if Bolton says it. A consideration we must weigh, is why Reuters gives Bolton ink? Reuters has a good reputable reputation and we must wonder, does Bolton have deep pockets money supporters who influence the press to give him exposure? We wish Mr. Bolton well, but his departure from public notice would be no loss to the USA.
