Libya After the Fall

Take Me To Post Comment Form

If some of the "regulars" recall I had posted a couple of blogs as to why did we get involved in Libya to begin with. The contrast between Libya and Syria when it comes down to innocent civilians being killed is close to the same level. The reality about Libya is that the real reason was the oil. The world did not hesitate to "help" when it came to stopping the bloodshed under the guise of what is right.. Syria can gas and kill over 100,000 civilians, displace over 2 million people but alas no oil, no help... The kicker is if you choose to read the article you can see what the help amounted to. The moral to the story is commitment and follow through. If you are going to start something you need to have an exit stratagy, an endstate, and a plan for sustainment. We never seem to get that one right...

I applaud the Re-Entry Coalition efforts as it is an uphill challenge from the get-go. The latest symposium was a good effort to try and get more entities to ...

Manley Man???
February 02, 2017
http://www.weeklystandard.com/boys-will-be-boys-and-eventually-should-be-men/article/2006606 In an attempt to sojourn away from the geopolitical drama I ran across this article and had to chuckle but also fret a little bit. What I mean is todays “average” young man aged 18-30 looks at things a whole lot different it seems. Mom and Dad’s basement is ...

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/draft-of-trump-religious-freedom-executive-order-signals-major-win-for-conservative-christians/ar-AAmwzrL I want to be candid from the start about this article so it does not look like I am pretending to be something I am not.

I don't remember one time in eight years when Obama attempted to do that... Regardless still a Patriotic and Classy move if it is true.
