When George Bush began the war in Iraq, I was a huge supporter. Like many of us back then, I was under the impression that the Iraqi's wanted "freedom". We see how that worked out.
All across the ME we see protesters proclaiming "We want freedom!". Blood is spilled, people die, then another brutal dictatorship under Islam, takes over. This of course has been going on for many years, this isn't new. One by one, the ME has been taken over by brutal islamic dictatorships, that these so-called "freedom fighters" wanted.
The current "fight for freedom" is in Syria. I say, let both sides die this time.
These people need to find a new word to describe what they really want. Freedom just ain't cutting it.
Saving Muslims From Themselves
After September 11 the reasonable thing to do would have been to take steps to save ourselves from Islamic terror, instead we went on a crusade to save Muslims from themselves. The latest stop on that crusade is Syria, where the foreign policy experts responsible for decades of horrifying misjudgements tell us that we are duty bound to save the Syrian people from their dictator.
Rarely do we ask why it is that Muslims so often need saving from their dictators. Or why a party that campaigned on improving America's reputation by promising not to bomb Muslims anymore, is now improving America's reputation by bombing so many Muslims and so often that it makes George W. Bush look like a tie dyed hippie.
The Obama Administration has had a role in regime change in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya all in one year. Along with the other "Friends of Syria" it would like to bomb its way to regime change in Syria. The point of all this regime change is to replace totalitarian Muslim regimes with democratically elected totalitarian Muslim regimes on the theory that will make everyone happier.
The reason why Muslim countries end up with dictators can be seen in the streets of Libya where militias run wild and former members of the regime and anyone with black skin is dragged off the street for torture sessions and a bullet in the back of the head. Peel away the presidents, colonels and other suit wearing tyrants fronting for an oligarchy and that is what every Muslim country will be reduced to.
