Senator McCain: Arm Libyan rebels, like Afghanistan in 1980s | The Raw Story
Of course, now we have to do it in Syria now too.
Sen. McCain: It's time to arm Syria's rebels - CBS News
When will we learn. 1954, Iran elects a President who's a little too close to the Soviets, so we install the Shah. Enter the Ayatollahs. 1979, the Soviets invade Afghanistan so we arm their enemy, thereby creating al Qaeda. In the 1980s, Iran and Iraq war, so since we don't like the Ayatollahs, we arm Saddam Hussein. Eventually we have to remove Saddam because he was hiding the chemical weapons that he got from us in the first place. 2011, we back rebels in Libya, 2012 they kill our ambassador.
Hmm...maybe if we didn't go arming everyone, we wouldn't keep stepping in ****.
The latest claim could be as lame as the SF Chronical claiming the Obama Administration put Stevens in Benghazi because he was gay and wanted to infuriate the radical Islamist - ok that was a lame SF poster but they still let it run on their web site a while. Lets just say for an instant that Beck was right here. The US Government was no doubt arming and aiding the opponents of the Libyan Govt to oust its dictator. Is everyone certain none of that aid made to al queda followers? Really? We continue to support the new government in Libya is everyone so 100% certain none of that government is made up people loyal to al queda? I am wow - wouldn't that like a KKK member being speaker of the House of Representatives and a Democrat? Never happen right?
So again what if Beck and Co are right? It strikes me that no one flat out cares - especially the defenders of Obama.
