 While I would love to believe that we invaded Libya for “humanitarian purposes”, the truth is more likely to be far less noble.

Is it just me, or does anyone else out there find it strange that with the nuclear reactors in Japan bellowing out huge streams of smoke, one of them at least in the process of full meltdown and signaling their dwindling stability, and the threat of global radiation contamination, that the UN and our own government chose this time to attack Libya? 

We didn’t attack Tunisia when the people there revolted, and we sure didn’t go into Egypt when those people revolted and we wouldn’t think of attacking Greece as the Greeks rebelled against the thugs running their government, but we will attack Libya under the cover of “protecting humanity” from Ghadafi while the reactors in Japan smolder.  Well when the hell did we get so sanctimonious? I think it was most likely when a few multi-national corporations identified major water and oil resources they would like to hi-jack and Libya refused to co-operate. 

I noticed that when the people of Syria began revolting and “security” forces opened fire on them, we sure didn’t fly to their rescue.  Of course, we were attempting to establish better relations with Syria what with all that oil in their country and of course their strategic location in the mideast that would be of benefit if (when?) we decide to attack other nations in the area. 

“The two were killed when security forces opened fire on Friday on civilians taking part in a peaceful protest demanding political freedoms and an end to corruption in Syria, which has been ruled under emergency laws by President Bashar al-Assad’s Baath Party for nearly half a century.”

But now, perched on the edge of what likely will be a disaster of unthinkable global proportions, we and several other countries under UN orders, attack Libya, cause gosh darn it!  That Ghadafi guy is a bad man and he’s firing on his own people.  Yeah…….like our government has not done that here at home. And our government uses sonic weapons, ADS microwave weapons and a host of other high tech and highly deadly creations intended for no other reason than crowd control of US citizens exercising their constitutional rights.  How quickly we forget Ruby Ridge and Waco.  And how about when our own government used its sonic weapons on protesters at the summit in Philadelphia?  Just to name a few.
