I've been waiting for someone to point out
that the "civil war" in Libya is total BS.

Check out the pictures of the "rebels."

Do you really think these guys could push
back a military force? Even once?

It's all make-believe, NATO bombing and
photo-"journalists" who have bills to pay.

And the great American lie machine, now
led by John McCain who called his recent visit to
charade-town one of "the most inspiring days
of his life."

Uh-huh.

Make-believe civil war

There is no battle between "rebel forces" and the Libyan military.

NATO bombs a Libyan position, the Libyan military evacuates - temporarily - and then a rag tag bunch of poseurs flood in, get their pictures taken pretending to be soldiers by a bunch of idiot journalists and/or CIA media people and then run off when the Libyan military comes back.

John McCain told reporters today that meeting these guys was "one of the most inspiring moments of his life" which re-enforces the idea that the 2008 presidential "election" was a choice between Clown-Liar #1 and Clown-Liar #2.

I guess the plan is to "help" the "rebels" one small step at a time until we're in there up to our elbows.

The last guy to have a major hard on for Libya was a former corporal with a funny mustache named Adolf. I guess there's not that many variations when it comes to trying to take over the world.

1. weak stuff
there is a lot of BS in every war but this isn't it. this guy googles for images and then picks them apart as if the whole war should be encapsulated in every picture. and finally caps with 'since McCain likes the rebels the rebels are BS.'

2. Kind of like Reagan (the actor with Alzheimer's)
and "his" Iran Contra "freedom fighters." Fuck all of the lies and propaganda...Damn, we are the ones who need a REAL revolution.

Injecting the dead aka emotion into a debate that can not and is not at all a black & white debate.

I am trying to think of who else does that?

Certainly not any morons.

6. That's It? Is He Kidding?
Does he think those massive protests two months ago were faked? Or that Bengazi and the entire East seized control from the Qaddaffi government? Or that Qaddaffi has so little support in the rest of the country that he is shelling and attacking Misurata, Zawiya, and the mountain West? All this before NATO dropped a single bomb?

The rebels are mostly overzealous, undertrained young men. Of course they mug for the camera, look out of place, and lack weapons.

It's one thing to be skeptical. It's another to blindly believe the opposite what John McCain or anyone else says.

10. the problem is the reactionary right
controls the mainstream news media- and those few who believe the bs are force fed lies. Mister Pig is very well slopped, and you/WE pay for it!

11. Locking.
While criticism of the President and other democratic politicians is certainly permitted, please refrain from using overly disrespectful nicknames and slurs when doing so.

Cheers,
varkam
