commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Another view on why the French and Brits jumped into Libya….And pulled us in too…


I’m tired …..

But while riding around with my wife this afternoon and evening I tuned into POTUS Satellite Radio….

They were doing the replay of the morning Press Pool radio show….

Louise Schiavone was filling in for the Joe Mathieu and she had  Llewellyn King on….

She got into a discussion about Libya…

And Llewellyn went on about a another reason for the mess in and over Libya…..

King invited that while the big deal about the Libyan “Civil War”  in this country was framed in the term of media pictures of people getting hurt from Gaddafi’s troops…

The REAL reason for the French flexing and the Brits and the rest of Europe getting excited and worked up was NOT Gaddafi at all…

It was immigration and assimilation….

The two issues are very real in the European continent King advised….

For this reason…

As things have gotten bad in the Middle East and Africa from wars and disputes between religious groups of muslims….

As the shia and Sunni muslims square off….

People move….

They move to the European countries where democracy lets them live their lives as they want to…..

If they aren’t religious the still move to live their lives free of dictators….


And this is VERY IMPORTANT …..

These immigrants ….

And they are a LOT of THEM…..

Are moving into Europe and NOT assimilating…..

King points out that in Italy and France there are whole swaths of the country that have immigrants that don’t bother to learn their new countries language, customs or laws….

They set up shop in their new destinations and BRING THEIR OLD COUNTRY with them…

France is in heated battle with muslim women who wear cover-ups that make them unrecognizable to anyone….

This ia religious custom ….

But the French are highly pissed ….

To the point that they have passed a law against it….

As in this country….

Immigration is a hot subject….

So King points out…..

The French and the Italians have been watching nervously as immigrants bail out of troubled Middle Eastern and Africa countries and landing on their shores….

Gaddafi was alright in Kings estimation until people started heading for the borders….

The result of the same thing the American media was showing…..

King points out that Sarkozy must have picked up the phone and spoke to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton…..Then President Obama reminding them that French and NATO troops where operating in Afghanistan providing great political risk to the heads of state of those countries……

It was time for the US to return the favor….

And I add…

Hillary sold it to Obama….

You know I never saw this thing that way….

But I can NOW see it …..

The more you know….

The more you can see……
