Just occasionally us truth tellers have to deal with a fully paid up, card carrying member of the idiots union. Yesterday for example, a comment on Little Nicky’s post about Libya sliding towards civil war as a result of the botched intervention by the FUKUS axis attracted a comment from some plank who wanted to tell me it was nonsense to suggest that “Gadaffi kept the peace”. Well it would have been wrong to apply that phrase but regular readers know Little Nicky would never use such a mealy mouthed, limp wristed, wussy, pink knicker wearing phrase.
Gadaffi was a brutal dictator who maintained a kind of order by suppressing brutal, bloodthirsty, fanatical factions who would otherwise been in a state of permanent civil war. Big difference, and the reason why most Libyans wish Gaddafi was still in charge.
Here for the benefit of cliche spouting idiot lefties who think ancient hatreds can be resolved by telling people to join hands and sing Kumbaya, is a snapshot of the “peace” that has reigned in three nations after western intervention removed brutal dictators.
If you are a stupid leftie who wants to tell me how mean and horrible I am for telling the truth about the total failure of Kumbayaism, don’t bother, just fuck the fucking fuck off. I am not interested in anything morons have to say.
The bloody disaster of Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan is laid bare
from Simon Jenkins in The Guardian
Forty-three people died on Friday in clashes between militias in Libya, as did 22 on Sunday from bombs in Iraq. In Helmand, a return of the Taliban to power is now confidently expected. Why should we care? Why should it feature on our news?
The answer is that we helped to bring it about. Britains three foreign wars in the past decade were uninvited military interventions to topple installed governments. All have ended in disaster.
In each case Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan it was easy to see evil in the prevailing regime. These are bad guys that we need to go after, said the Americans. Yet the removal of law and order from a nation is devastating, however cruel that order may have been. Iraqis today repeat that, whatever the ills of Saddam Hussein, under his rule most ordinary citizens and their families could walk the streets at night without fear of murder or kidnap. Religious differences were tolerated. Iraq should have been an oil-rich modern state. Even the Kurds, scourged by Saddam in the past, enjoyed autonomy and relative peace.
