UPDATE: 10:30 AM: The Arab League is a no show. They are not only a no-show, but they are now criticizing the very No Fly Zone they encouraged and vowed to join. Who Knew!!!? (Hand on surprised face…).
GodAwful Vows to fight the “foreign devils” who attacked poor poor him.
The attack by what Gaddafi called “imperial” aggressors will provoke a “worldwide, popular revolution”, he said. “Even women,” he exclaimed, “will go out and fight”. He said he has opened the nation’s arsenals to the population, so they can defend themselves against foreign assaults.
Maybe they will use the arsenal on him. This guy is truly a member of DENSA.
Gaddafi: “Naked Aggression”
Canada has now joined the No Fly Zone efforts.
One either believes in freedom or one just says one believes in freedom. The Libyan people have shown by their sacrifice that they believe in it. Assisting them is a moral obligation upon those of us who profess this great ideal.”
….Which begs the How Come None Of Us Helped Iran question…
….and of course, now Bahrain wants one too..
I note with some irony the hosannas greeting the UN Security Council resolution establishing a no-fly zone over Libya.
The rationale for this resolution is that the dictator Moammar
Gadhafi is shooting his own people and refusing democratic reforms. Granted, he is.But so is Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, the emir of Bahrain. The emir, who like Napoleon crowned himself “king,” has just imported Saudi troops. They have brutally put down the popular uprising there in an invasion that resembles the Soviet suppression of the Hungarian uprising of 1956, or the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. Each invasion was at the invitation of the government of the day.
Will update as things unfold. If you have any important links, please post them and I or mods will add them to this post.
