    Palin Doctrine Emerges as Arab League Echoes Her Demarche on Libya

    The call by the Arab League for Western military intervention in an Arab state — in this case asking that a UN “no-fly zone” be imposed over Libya – is not only without precedent but it puts in formal terms what Governor Palin stated three weeks ago should have been America’s response to the political and humanitarian crisis now unfolding there.

    ...Mrs. Palin’s formulation had been blogged about for nearly a week when it was echoed by the man who, before the Iraq war, had led the Iraq democratic movement in exile, Ahmed Chalabi.

    The Palin Doctrine. It contrasts sharply with the foreign policy being conducted, if that is the word, by President Obama, who is perplexing not only the Arab world, to which he reached out in his Cairo speech at the start of his presidency, but even his own supporters in the liberal camp, and many in between, who are upset by what might be called his propensity for inaction. It’s an inaction that suggests the Arab League won’t be the only institution that might find itself surprised by the logic of the alert Alaskan.

    She's ahead of the curve again, and people have the gall to claim she's stupid. If that's the case, what is Obama? Is he really, really stupid, or does he simply lack a pair of testicles. In the words of The Rag'in Cajun... perhaps Hillary can loan Obama one of hers.

    Yeah, 'cause she's the only person to espouse that idea.

    And as for ahead of the curve, the idea for a no fly zone over Libya has been floating around since before the 3rd of January.

    Lateline - 01/03/2011: Gaddafi disconnected from reality

    ALI MOORE, PRESENTER: The United States is moving warships and planes from its Mediterranean-based Sixth Fleet closer to Libya, as the United Nations continues to debate whether to introduce a no-fly zone over the country.
    Three weeks ago isn't really ahead of a curve that began three months ago.

    ROTFLOL... Spud good buddy... that's from March 1, 2011... not January 3, 2011.

    March 1 was how long ago?

    Palin... ahead of the curve.

    ROTFLOL.

    Dammit, I was thinking in the American date system from something else I was looking up. :

    But our foreign minister has been advocating this for about the same amount of time, and the first reference I can find to a no fly zone is from a certain Lord David Owen. Not a Palin original idea.

    I prefer and use the D/M/Y date system as well... but I was wondering how the hell could someone have been calling for a NFZ in Libya on Jan 3, when the Tunesian Fire Act that started the first domino went up in smoke on Jan 3, 2011. Now that would have been way, way, way ahead of the curve.

    For those interested in Lord David Owen's statement: http://www.thetakeaway.org/2011/feb/...strikes-libya/

    It doesn't really matter who had the idea. She was standing pretty much alone on the US political landscape with it, and does anyone doubt she would have acted and it wouldn't have taken weeks of gestation? So regardless of who thunked it up, she was ahead of the curve.

    Have to LOL at Drudge Report's Title for the day... "Hillary's War". Meanwhile back at the ranch, Barack is pleading with Michelle to give him his balls back.

    She seems to rather be with the curve in people without decision making powers in calling for it.

    Oh my god. Are you that out of touch!?! You live under a rock? I cant believe that anyone is that far out. Man, if you think Palin was some how the first person to think of this or even one of the first people to think of this, I have no respect for you anymore. That is one of the dumbest things Ive read in a while. And to call it the "palin Doctrine" is just soooooooo ignorant and stupid...... Im just without words at how utterly stupid this is.

    Are you talking about the proposal for a No-fly zone that President Sarkozy had discussed with the media on February 22nd? Or the one proposed by the Libyan Deputy Ambassador to the UN, at the UN on February 21st? You mean the one that Sarah Palin would have read about in the papers on the morning you reckon she 'invented' the idea, February 23rd? Is that what you're referring to as The Palin Doctrine? The policy position she borrowed from France?
