Sec. Clinton: US Ready to Aid Libyan Rebels

Today, Hillary Clinton stated:
"We've been reaching out to many different Libyans who are attempting to organize in the east... We are ready and prepared to offer any type of assistance."
Go figure, the Obama White House standing up for the liberty of the downtrodden.  Don't get me wrong, this is certainly a good thing and the United States should help those being oppressed, but where was this two years ago when Iran was murdering protesters on the street?

I guess at the time it didn't get enough media coverage.  Either that or President Obama still believed he could talk (without preconditions!) to crazed dictators and authoritarian presidents.

And not for nothing, but where was this when the United States liberated Iraq from Saddam Hussein?  You might have disagreed that we should have invaded in the first place, but at least we freed millions from oppression.  But at the time, it felt good to attack President Bush.  At the time it was easier from Secretary Clinton and President Obama to make political hay and say, "the death toll can't go high enough," and "Bush is a war-monger."

Now it's a different tune.  Now everything is different because it helps them politically.

  1. "The aid that Mrs Clinton is referring to is not military, but food aid, air-drops of Fish and Chips, wrapped in legal Wired Wills, to the people of Libya from the people of Lancashire", replied Barry Costello Monelle Delmonte, president of the Struck-off Solicitors Society in Lytham-St-Annes
