Last Friday, in an article about how President Obama “turned on a dime toward war” in Libya, Foreign Policy magazine reported on a group of outside “experts” at a White House meeting who were told by “a senior administration official” that attacking Libya was “the greatest opportunity to realign our interests and our values” — a quote “from Obama himself,” according to the official.
Right now, Libya looks like an object lesson in the failure of multilateralism.
The official objective is to save civilians, but the president says Gadhafi must go. The U.N.’s official aim is only “to protect civilians and civilian-populated areas under threat of attack.” Yet 2,200 Marines from Camp Lejeune in North Carolina have been given the mission of “protecting the Libyan people from Gadhafi forces.”
Are we helping the Libyan rebels? “I haven’t had any unofficial communications or official communications” with the opposition forces, the operations commander, Adm. Samuel Locklear, tells reporters.
Who’ll ultimately be running military efforts in Libya?
“This is still being worked in Brussels,” according to the National Security Council. Who’ll pay for establishing a no-fly zone costing $400 million to $800 million, then maybe $100 million a week to maintain? That’s as unknown as Operation Odyssey Dawn’s objectives.

Has any modern political figure ever squandered political goodwill in the manner of Obama—trading near messianic devotion from a hundred million for not even a cup of proverbial porridge in return? His political pratfalls occur only as often as he makes decisions. But even the most hardened Obama backers had to shudder and roll their eyes this week when Barack fixated on college basketball “brackets” instead of ongoing tragedy, chaos and the loss of tens of thousands. It became transparent—in a way in which only disasters bring clarity—that Obama is a boy amongst men, only haphazardly observing history’s progress the way a house cat mindlessly follows a fluttering object.

…The President has publicly stated that he knows that Congress, not the President, is the seat of the constitutional war power. His public replacement of the Congress with the U.N. as authority for his presidential actions is a public statement that he has replaced the U.S. Constitution with the U.N. as the source of U.S. presidential authority; there is no other possible interpretation. Our President has here publicly yielded American sovereignty to the international body.
Some quibble that the President already has the power he is exercising in Libya as Commander in Chief. That responsibility provides him the power to defend the country when attacks precede the ability of Congress to act; it is defensive only. Libya neither threatened nor attacked the U.S. No honest argument can support any other conclusion from these facts….

HOUSTON, 3/23/2011 — With aftershocks from Japan‘s 9,0 3/11/11 killer quake still alarming Pacific nations, some will be delighted to discover that FEMA, NOAA, et al., scheduled tsunami drills at least three months ahead of time.
For others, though, the coincidence of a 9.0 Pacific earthquake and tsunami, scheduled to strike near Oregon today in the exercise scenario, is cause for real alarm. They point out that the U.S. HAARP facility in Alaska, able to create super storms and killer quakes, suddenly cranked out incalculable energy from 3/9, when a 7.2 quake struck Japan, through 3/11, when the big one hit.
Will HAARP be participating in todays exercise? Will the CIA, which is part of secretive training at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas this week? For more about the CIA exercise, refer to my article of yesterday, 3/22 Radioactive Questions for Barack Obama. Are the tsunami drills and the Leavenworth drills connected?
“Coincidental to the horrific earthquake, tsunami and the subsequent cascading incidents that devastated large portions of Japan this past weekend, the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program Warning Coordination Subcommittee is preparing for a series of preparedness exercises in this country.”
“Tsunami exercise is being conducted to assist tsunami preparedness efforts throughout the Caribbean region. The purpose of the exercise is to improve Tsunami Warning System effectiveness along the Caribbean coasts.”
May, are you still feeding off of fear motivation and delusions of how the joos are out to get you? You live for recognition, and when you don’t beat your chest about your qualifications (which suck), someone is doing it for you. In your condition you need the help of a fist. You are sick, Monkey Mind.
