Bush/Cheney fail.

The western leaders think they are doing good by intervening. But they have actually opened Pandora’s box in Libya which WILL destroy EUROPE in next 30-40yrs, unless the EU stem the people smugglers with strict action. You CANNOT house the whole of libyan population in Italy/Germany. By accepting the so called refugees, you are indirectly abetting/supporting National Savlation governement (NSG) in Libya.

Clearly the National Salvation Government is upset on EU use of military action to control the people smugglers. The EU must first build public support (via media) aganst the NSG in abetting the people smugglers. I would bet my last dollar that there are lots & lots of ISIS fighters & Al queda fighters entering Europe via these channels on the pretxt of refugges. They are moles for the headquaters. Cant the EU government see this? How blind! Learn from the mistakes Denmark made in accpting them freely, and now wants to pay them to leave. Ha ha ha. ridiculous. Do something before its too late else the civilised Europe we know will not last by next decade.

Curtis LeMay, 1966 re Vietnam.
Richard Armitage according to Pervez Musharraf, 2002 re Pakistan.
Ted Cruz, 2014 re Iraq and Syria.
It is not hard to find positive things to say about the Roman and British Empires. Not so the Mongol Empire, more into slaughter, destruction and looting. The US military industrial complex does slaughter and destruction but gets the US taxpayer to foot the bill rather than looting.

We need to be supporting Assad, not opposing him!

So much for free speech!

We continue to oust leaders we don’t like; we continue to prop up regimes we think serve our interests; we continue to choose sides in fights that concern us not in the least. It’s this kind of hubris (in both political parties) that threatens not only our own well-being but global peace as well.
