As Obama Congratulates Libya for Ending “42 years of dictatorship”, Libyan People React with Anger

In a message to the Libyan people, the US President said the 2011 Libyan revolution liberated them from “42 years of dictatorship.” Now there are “profound challenges,” which the Libyan people “have demonstrated the commitment to resolve.”

    Obama actually had the gall (and deceit) to stand there while he was literally ordering the bombing of Libyan civilian women and children in 2011 and to say — like the lying ‘Land Shark’ at Gilda Radner’s door in the old SNL skit — “We’re NOT there for Empire”, when he as faux/Emperor-president of this Disguised Global Capitalist Empire, was precisely there ‘for Empire’.

  • And at the same time you’re still endorsing the very same party that Obama belongs to, only this time your preferred candidates initials are BS.

    Imagine that the US democratic party is one big chilly, everybody knows that chilly’s are hot — After handling them it’s best not to rub your eyes with your fingers, only after learning that chilly’s are hot you’re still pretending that they do not burn, with eyes going moist you still ask for more.

    Ever heard of ”once bitten twice shy” — yet when it comes to the US Duopoly no one appears to notice that a repeat performance is nigh.

    If you truly wish to work towards global peace, neither side of the corporately controlled US duopoly has the right candidate — while the US Greens have come up with a far better plan.

    Southerner, Bernie was a threat, not only to the “Empress-in-waiting” and certified War Hawk, Killary Klinton, from the smoother-lying neoliberal-con ‘D’ Vichy Party side of this game, but he was also a threat to ‘il Donald’ the possible off-leash egomaniac sociopath, from the rougher-talking neocon ‘R’ Vichy Party side of the same “Game of Thrones”.

    Bernie ‘was’ a potential threat to the whole Game of Empire, if he had reversed, corrected, and ‘outed’ Obama’s big lie.

    But as we can now see from history — if it’s not yet, as Fukuyama wrote in his “End of History” of the Soviet ‘Evil Empire’ being the last one on earth — that Bernie safely and sanely did not spill the beans on the actual Last Empire left standing.

    And as Kurt Vonnegut might well have written in his last non-fiction, “Man Without a Country” ————- “And so it goes”.

    stephen, maybe Sanders simply did not share the same belief as Obama of ‘why we were there’, eh?

    IAC, Sanders never seemed to contradict Obama’s comment, opinion, and lie.

  • Southernfink

    That was 8 months ago.

    Sanders might not have expected his own success, however he struck a deal with the Democrats and didn’t really attack HRC on the issues such as the email disaster — when he could have and should have — instead he went and endorsed the HRC nomination!

    To actually pose a real threat to the establishment candidates HE definitely should have remained an independent, or taken up Steins offer.

    Meanwhile Sanders is able to relax in a lovely water front setting.

    Yes, Southernfink, Bernie could have been a contender — and even after the Clinton mob threatened him out of the DNC contest, he coulda still been effective if he took Jill up on her very generous offer to head the Green ticket (which would have insured the 15% to be in the Presidential debates).

    But, patience is NOT a virtue when it comes to overthrowing Empires!

    Bernie Sander’s had such HUUUUUGE Patience with Empire that he never even
    talked about it or bothered to expose nor ‘call it out’ to the
    media/propaganda deluded ‘subjects’ of the American people:

    Bernie, if he had taken Jill’s invitation to run as a Green, would have easily
    qualified to participate in this otherwise Bull Shit debate between the
    ‘Empress-in-waiting’ War Hawk, Killary (from the smoother-lying neoliberal-con ‘D’ Vichy Party of the Empire) and ‘il Donald’ the sociopathic egomaniac (from the rougher-talking, intentionally ‘scary’ neocon ‘R’ Vichy Party of the effing exact same Empire).

    Of course, any debate between these two ‘stage show’ candidates for the faux-Emperor/Empress of this undiagnosed Disguised Global Capitalist Empire, that is only nominally HQed in, and merely ‘posing’ as, our former country would have been exposed and exploded as the total Vichy sham that it is, if and only if a real independent voice of the people was included in the phony debate and could have fired a loud, public, national TV, “Shout heard round the world” that what
    America needs is a Second (but non-violent) American “Political Revolution”
    against EMPIRE —- AGAIN! — which Bernie had ever friggin chance to do, when he “coulda been a contender — instead of a bum, which is what he is” [Brando, “On the Waterfront”].

    But instead Bernie only called for the sound-bite of a “Political Revolution” — against What??? — an incomplete sentence with no Object. All Revolutions, including our own First (and only successful) American Revolution are against Empire.

    WhyTF, didn’t Bernie have the brains and guts to “Out the Empire” when he could have done it for; us, the U.S., our children, our grand children, our country, our environment, our entire “ailing social order”, and our fragile little world???

    WTF, Bernie, “you coulda been a contender, instead of ….”

    For as Zygmunt Bauman hauntingly puts it, “In the case of an ailing social
    order, the absence of an adequate diagnosis…is a crucial, perhaps decisive, part of the disease.”

    Berman, Morris 2007 “Dark Ages America, The Final Phase of Empire”

    The disease is Empire, of which we are truly in the “final phase of” — and the only cure is a Second (but non-violent) American Revolution against Empire, by merely ‘exposing’ and ‘calling-it-out’, but we need to do it Again!

    Fortunately Jill and the Green Party are the only ones who are overtly, openly, publicly ‘on Record’ as being 100% against this damn Empire hiding behind its militarist capitalist global HQ of Empire, and as another woman, Hannah Arendt, the late/great scholar of all empires (including the one that captured and controlled her birth country, Germany) famously warned:

    “Empire abroad entails tyranny at home” — which is as certain for the U.S. as it was for Germany in bringing horror abroad and tyranny against we ‘subjects’ at home in the Homeland/Fatherland.
