“The War Powers Act deadline that required President Obama to pull U.S. military forces from NATO’s war on Libya has come and gone. Not to worry, the usual bipartisan cabal is coming to the rescue. Senators John Kerry and (who else) John McCain cobbled together a hasty resolution to give Congress’s blessing to the president’s confused military adventure.”
I called Scott Brown’s Washington office and his aide rattled off his talking points that basically concur with the McCain-Kerrry position. In March,” Senator Scott Brown said this morning he supports the unfolding wave of U.S. air strikes on Libya, saying they are necessary to stop the killing of innocent civilians.” Meanwhile civilians were recently killed by an errant NATO bomb that most likely was made in the USA.
I explained that at a time when our economy is at a financial precipice, we are engaged in FOUR Arab wars (Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Yemen) and are financing the rise of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood through our majority support in the International Monetary Fund IMF. On May 28, 2011 the blockaded Rafah border crossing connecting Gaza with Egypt was officially opened by the Egyptian authorities and the Hamas government, thereby opening a smuggling route for weapons that will be used against Israel.
Additionally, the Obama Middle East Policy is insuring that “Egypt’s shifts are likely to alter the balance of power in the region, allowing Iran new access to a previously implacable foe and creating distance between itself and Israel…”
The Obama Administration’s sleight of hand Middle East Policy while appearing to be humanitarian in purpose is actually responsible for the awakening and formation of a new Militant Arab League that is in process of including Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Bahrain, Syria and Iran.
