Misplaced jubilation

Though the imminent downfall of a blooddthirsty tyrant is always to be welcomed for the sake of his oppressed people, I caanot understand the unrestrained joy of western “liberals” at the prospect of a bloodbath in Tripoli.

That the western powers have armed the rebels and provided air cover for their advance sets a very dangerous precedent.

And the likelyhood, near certainty in face that Mad Dog Gadaffi is about to be replaced by an even more insance, fanatical bunch of genocidal lunatics should not please anybody. One thing we should remember is Libya had no organised opposition, just a rabble of tribal militias who once the common enemy is gone have shown they will start fighting each other for supremacy.

This is not the beginning of the end, it is the end of the beginning: Churchill.

This guy seems to know a thing or two as well:
“These same institutions produce quite different effects while they are still being fought for; then they really promote freedom in a powerful way. On closer inspection it is war that produces these effects, the war for liberal institutions, which, as a war, permits illiberal instincts to continue. And war educates for freedom. For what is freedom? That one has the will to self-responsibility. That one maintains the distance which separates us. That one becomes more indifferent to difficulties, hardships, privation, even to life itself. That one is prepared to sacrifice human beings for one’s cause, not excluding oneself.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

Is poverty or politically correct thinking to blame for the riots

Oh so very predictably the left were quick to try to blame ‘poverty’ for the outbreak of rioting, arson, violence and general lawlessness that has soiled our British summer. Labour Deputy Leader Harriet Harman aka Little Hattie Harperson even tried to claim the trouble was triggered by the coalition governments decision to increase university tuition fees. That is daft even by Hattie’s usual impeccable standard of stupidity.

The Real Cause Of The Riots: Moral deficiency led by politically correct thinking.

The idea that some watered down form of Marxism can relieve poverty while a system based on free enterprise, personal liberty and responsibility and small governmen can only widen the gap between rich and poor is widely held and completely wrong.
