Thank you, Quazi!
American Revolutionary War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It isn't exactly the same, but it is quite hypocritical to say that we should not help any nation out when the people wish to be free and are starting the fight on their own, when we had several nations over 200 years ago help us to gain our independence from Great Britain.

I have been accused by quite a few posters of lamenting the death of Gadaffy. Those accusations are both unsupportable and off point. The purpose of this thread was to get the very reaction I received from the BO fans here. I have no doubt each of you were screaming about all of the atrocities that happened on Bush's watch, but you are silent on BO's misadventures. in this instance we have BO funding and supporting a rag tag bunch of murdering thugs. We don't know who these thugs are and what they intend to do with the country and it's oil after they kill Gadaffy and his supporters. At this point we know these "honorable" rebels are raping women, killing blacks, filling mass graves with people that were tied up and shot in the head, etc., ...... and now we have this lovely scene with a guy being sodomized and shot in the head. These are the same folks that promise to go "sharia lite" once they are in charge.
What did the liberal icon, Colin Powell, say about Iraq "you break it you own it". How many times did we hear that comment? Yet in this very thread the same people that probably used Powell's comments to bash Bush are washing their hands of the atrocities we are seeing from the very rebels we are supporting.
Bush tried to take out a murdering thug in Iraq and replace him with a democracy......and for that he was scorned by the opposition. BO is sanctioning executions, violent rebellions with people that are just as bad as the dictators they seek to kill, drone bombings in sovereign countries ........ and the liberals rejoice. I wonder if you will have the same level of tolerance for a republican president that may do the same thing as BO.....I doubt it.
It's been a distinct pleasure watching some of you tie yourself into pretzels trying to defend BO.
To the moderator, I called generic liberals hypocrites, and you slapped me with a warning. Did you read the last sentence in the post I quoted?
I love the smell of burning moonbat in the morning.
I love the smell of face-palm in the morning!

If you can't tell that's sarcasm, I can't help you.
Alright, here are my thoughts:
• It's wrong to sodomize any person and then kill him w/o a fair trial.
• Sharia Law is not a good thing for America or American soldiers.
• Women are treated like meat under Sharia.
• Liberalism has always been, well, inconsistent.
• The world will not be better off if Libya goes Islamofascist.
• BO's a peace-making Nobel prize winner. That's what.
How much of a military did Libya have? How much of a military did Saddam have? Saddam was also suspected of having lots of WMD's that hed already used on his own citizens. A revolt by the citizens would have resulted in massive amounts of death by Saddam doing exactly what Daffy duck did. Using their own military on their own citizens. The only difference is Saddams republican guard would have slaughtered everyone. They wouldn't have thrown him out at all. He would have been emboldened by it.
That lets take the moral high road is nothing more than bull **** in real life.Taking the moral high road might work in the movies and win the bad guys over. In real life people who suffered under a brutal dictator do not want to win the brutal dictator and his loyalists over. In real life your enemies are not going to to give two ****s if you take the moral high ground nor are they going to treat you any different just because you coddle POWs.
They behaved the way anyone who suffered for decades under a dictator would behave. I am sure that if you were in their shoes you would have done the same thing. If I was in their shoes I probably would be cracking his skull with a bat.Instead they behaved like a pack of barbaric animals on acid and showed the worse traits of humankind. This will do little for the image of their country and cause. A great start for a new Democratic Nation with torture and Summary execution without a trial.
What matters is that he was punished for his actions, he got punished for his actions. A show trial is meaningless.He was never made to be held accountable for any of his actions.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
I would like to point out that they didn't need to sodomize ghadaffi. That didn't make much sense. He was a brutal dictator who killed people. Kill him, but why shove something in his ass??
