Was Obama's Illegal War in Libya A Trial Run to Attack Israel?
Hey, Obama Lovers, now that our Ambassador is dead, our Benghazi consulate is a smoldering ruin, and its top secret documents have been snatched by Al Qaeda, do you still think your hero's Libyan war is a smashing success?
Because I sure do. Not from America's point of view, of course; it's a nightmare for our national security.
But from the perspective of Obama's biggest donor, the convicted felon and renowned Israel-hater George Soros, the Libyan War is a triumph. Why? Because Obama waged it illegally and without the consent of Congress. And he did it in the name of the political philosophy that Soros bought and paid for: Responsibility to Protect, or, as it's so zippily dubbed by our global elites, R2P.
Let's lay the big facts on the table: Soros paid a flame-haired foreign policy vixen named Samantha Power to develop and popularize Responsibility to Protect (R2P) as a catchy tool to invade countries that he feels like invading.
See for yourself: Soros's Open Society Institute is a major donor of the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, a terribly high-minded international institute of terribly high-minded people pledging terribly high-minded interventions with our military.
Despite her busy schedule of posing provocatively for Men's Vogue, Samantha Power found the time to serve as Obama's top policy advisor on Libya. And in that glorious capacity, she persuaded him to send our military to Libya for the first self-proclaimed R2P intervention.
Before I go much farther into our Libyan disaster, I want to tell you some pertinent facts about Samantha Power, a.k.a. Mrs. Cass ("The Most Dangerous Man in America") Sunstein.
Samantha Power doesn't like Jews very much, and she really doesn't like Israel, probably because so many Jews live there. Like Stephen Walt, her anti-Semitic colleague at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, Power regards American Jews as a subversive element pushing America to side with its enemy, Israel.
Chillingly, in 2002, Ms. Power told a television interviewer that America should use its military to invade Israel to protect the Palestinians. Alas, said Ms. Power with a rueful chuckle, that would require "alienating a domestic constituency of tremendous political and financial import" - i.e., Jews.
You see where this is going, right? Ms. Power proposes that America invade Israel on humanitarian grounds. Soros then pays her to develop this insanity into the benign-sounding "Responsibility to Protect," and creates a lofty international institute to promote it. Obama then hires Power to try out R2P in Libya and, thereby get everybody desensitized to the concept.
Here are the monumentally terrifying words that Obama said, as he sent our forces to Libya:
"And that's why building this international coalition has been so important because it means that the United States is not bearing all the cost. It means that we have confidence that we are not going in alone, and it is our military that is being volunteered by others to carry out missions that are important not only to us, but are important internationally."
Dear George Washington, will you ever forgive us? In her infinite wisdom, America elected Commander-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama, who offers up our best and bravest to be "volunteered by others." And Obama got away with it.
Sure, a few editorials squawked about Obama waging war illegally, on the basis of a United Nations Security Council Resolution, instead of a Congressional vote. The New York Times even scolded him for "legal machinations" that "set a troubling precedent that could allow future administrations to wage war at their convenience -- free of legislative checks and balances."
I'm sure Obama was quaking in his golf shoes when he read those words -- not. He was too busy plunging ahead in the next phase of his attack on Israel: unleashing his bare-fanged, unconcealed hatred.
Nobody can accuse Obama of pandering for Jewish seniors' votes in Florida this time round. He refuses to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, and denigrates Israel's concerns about Iranian threats of nuclear annihilation as "noise." (Perhaps Obama and Ahmadinejad share the same press agent, because, oddly, that's what the Nazi dwarf called it, too.)
Obama's Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey even proclaimed he doesn't want to be "complicit" in an Israeli strike on Iran, equating Israel's potential self-defense against genocide with a crime.
Meanwhile, the "international community," of which Obama is so fond, continues its ceaseless work of demonizing Israel. If Obama gets a second term with "more flexibility," it's not much of a stretch to imagine the day when the United Nations and its assorted culture warriors screech that the poor Palestinians need R2P! And whether the American people want it or not, Obama will eagerly offer up our military "to be volunteered by others" to attack Israel.
As the "catastrophic intelligence loss" of our Benghazi assets reverberates, it's clear that Obama wasn't defending American interests in Libya. His "responsibility to protect" didn't even extend to our Ambassador. Even now, two weeks after the attacks, Obama hasn't bothered to secure the consulate.
But, Allah be praised, Obama still scored big in Libya. He and Soros are significantly closer to creating a United States of Islam to encircle Israel, and they're armed with a proven doctrine to get America in for the kill.
