commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

As the rebels recapture ground…One wonders…Will Obama be the President that lost Democracy in the Middle East?…

From the jump…..

On our little poll here the numbers read like this….(they are tiny numbers )

Should Obama do No-Fly Zones and other military action…..

No….45% None….

Yes….18% to evacuate people

No…..Let NATO take the lead

 

So among the readers of this blog…..

The President of the America IS doing the right thing by NOT doing anything….

 

But I wonder how this doing nothing is gonna play on the domestic and world stage?

That question may….

Or…

May not be important …

I’m sure the big boys polling have come down close to the results here…

 

But right now the President is taking heat from both US political parties on NOT doing anything to help the opposition in Libya… do anything….

This about the same thing that happens in Iran every few years..

The US hops up the population…

They mound demonstrations…

They get taken out…

Again and again….

 

This time…

If Gaddafi is able to retake Libya back in a civil war things aren’t going be so nice….

The US and NATO will shown other rulers in the area that they will let them carry their own fight to their population…..

The American push for democracy will ring hallow….

And the bad guys will be happy to ramp up their oil prices and give us the finger….

Is all this worth the abuse…..

 

I  know sometimes you swallow hard and move on….

Is this one of those times for the President?

But this will be no joke in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and other capital’s…

The US will not fight anymore…

 

The American’s are tired…

And they want to go home….

 

Which is of course true…..

 

A lot of people are mad at James Clapper , the US Director of National Intelligence, because he got it right today when he told the Senate Foreign Relations Panel that if no one comes to help the Libyan rebels….

They will lose their battle with Gaddafi’s forces in the end….

 

Everyone’s tired….

They want to send the troops home…

The questions are….

Will the World take rest also while we do?

And ….

Will President Obama….Following his Defense Secretary’s advice …In fighting no more…

Be the guy who helped cure  ’Democracy fever’ in the Middle East and North Africa…..
