Using the U.N., America and the Western military powers were dragged into military intervention against Libya under the call to stand up for democracy and protect innocent Libyan civilians from the murderous repression of the seemingly insane dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
On Friday I blogged, "Is the West being duped into some sort of catastrophe by Libya?" The answer to that question is now becoming more apparent.
The U.S., U.K. and France would have kept out of the whole Libyan imbroglio until Arab states impressed upon them the need to act:
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the United States will support its European, Canadian and Arab partners in their efforts to stop further violence against civilians in Libya by Muammar Qaddafi’s forces, including “through the effective implementation of a no-fly zone.”
Arab nation leadership in efforts to stop violence in Libya has played a key role in mobilizing the international coalition, Clinton said. Clinton said that the Arab League with its “pivotal statement” changed the “diplomatic landscape” with regard to the approach toward the United Nations Security Council resolution this week authorizing “all necessary measures,” including a no-fly zone to end violence and protect civilians in that country. [From Obama punked by the Arab League on Libya]
Of all nations, Lebanon took up the baton by submitting a U.N. resolution authorizing "all necessary measures" to impose a no-fly zone in Libya, protect civilian areas and pressure Libyan leader Gaddafi into accepting a ceasefire - a very broad permission slip for the use of military force against Libya that ultimately implies forcefully removing Gaddafi from power.
Lebanon is now a puppet state of Syria and Iran, both with comparable regimes to that of Libya. Thus Lebanon should have been unwilling to invite Western military action against Libya to overthrow a like regime to that of its Iranian and Syrian controllers.
Meanwhile, this sweeping U.N. resolution was somehow allowed to pass without a veto by Russia or even an effort by Moscow to constrain the broad language allowing substantial use of Western-led military force?! This somehow occurred even though Russia's NATO Ambassador commented on March 1st:
"If someone in Washington is seeking a blitzkrieg in Libya, it is a serious mistake because any use of military force outside the NATO responsibility zone will be considered a violation of international law."
This is all total BS.
Now, as potent Western military intervention occurs since Gaddafi continued to pummel civilian populations in key opposition centers like Benghazi, suddenly Russia, China and the Arab League do a total about-face?!
As the Western air-strikes began Saturday, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Alexander Lukashevich made the comment: "Air force units from a host of countries began military actions in Libya on March 19. Moscow regrets this military action."
Today, Reuters reported:
Russia called on Britain, France and the United States on Sunday to stop air strikes against what it said were non-military targets in Libya, saying the attacks had caused civilian casualties.
"In that respect we call on countries involved to stop the non-selective use of force," Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said in a statement.
China has had this to say:
China regrets the multinational military strike launched against Libya, a spokeswoman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Sunday.
"China has noticed the latest development in Libya and regrets the military strike against Libya," Jiang Yu said, adding that China did not agree with resorting to force in international relations.
"China believes that the tenet and principles of the United Nations Charter and relevant international laws should be adhered to, and Libya's sovereignty, independence, unification and territory integrity should be respected," Xinhua news agency quoted her as saying.
"We hope stability could be restored in Libya as soon as possible so as to avoid more civilian casualties caused by the escalation of military conflicts," she said.
Meanwhile, as if the U.S. had been somehow "punked", today Arab League chief Amr Moussa, who supported U.N. Resolution 1973, called for an emergency meeting of his organization and commented:
"What is happening in Libya differs from the aim of imposing a no-fly zone, and what we want is the protection of civilians and not the bombardment of more civilians."
In other words, the Western powers are behaving like 'imperialist, capitalist, war-mongering, oil-dominating bad guys'....right?!
Wrong! We've simply been duped by our insidious enemies into some sort of dangerous geopolitical trap.
Hmmmm.....let's think about this for a second.
Oh....here's what I think might be the proper response to the new flip-flopping tripe from Russia, China and the Arab League:
Ahh.....golly gee, no one in the West was supposed to pick up on your psychopathic anti-Israeli, anti-American, anti-Western machinations and take you to task for it?
Well....you never considered the possibility that you're up against the wrong guy!
You all want to conspire against the free world and formulate a thermonuclear strategy to destroy God's people in the name of an utterly bogus "caliphate" and "kingdom of god" that will truly be nothing but a dictatorship of man and ungodly dystopia?
So be it.
I can't stop the missiles from flying and Western Civilization from being destroyed and vanquished, but I sure as heck can stab the heart of man with the Spirit Of Truth and throw an ultimate wrench into this disgusting, diabolical plot unfolding against righteousness and God's true will for humanity.
My suggestion to Western leaders is to completely back off from Libya right now. Let the nation implode if that's what Libya and its Russian overseer want to happen. The blood will be on their hands.
The West should stop cooperating in its own destruction at the hands of the utterly deceptive, untrustworthy, evil intelligence services running the Kremlin now and seeking to run the entire world down the road. This world is currently facing the ultimate crime against humanity at the hands of the most evil, vile creatures ever to walk this planet. See them for what they are and do not play their game.
Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!" [John 8:42-45]
