Americans Ring the Death Bell for Supporting Islamic Radicals in Benghazi

A new tragedy for 9/11...

Happy and sad masks

(SACRAMENTO, CA) - Here is an idea: next time leave a stable sovereign government like Libya alone. Another suggestion, don't hire people who hate you to overthrow someone you trusted for decades.

While U.S. President Barack Obama laments the loss of four American diplomats who were killed on the anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11, and calls the attack "outrageous"; let us remember it is Obama who pushed for the destabilizing attacks and whose decisions led to the deaths of thousands and thousands of innocent people, mostly at the hands of Benghazi rebels and western air raid attacks organized by the EU and UN.

John Christopher Stevens, US ambassador to Libya, dedicated his life to taking down Muammar Gaddafi even though he worked with the leader for years before he was instructed to turn against the prior regime. A second victim has been identified as Sean Smith, a Foreign Service information management officer who had spent 10-years with the State Department. He was a husband and a father of two.

The two other victims have not been named. Clinton said the government was working to contact their families.

His loss is a tragedy for the U.S. but it is also a wake up call. I have to wonder what he really thought. Ambassador Stevens was sent to Benghazi by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to be the American link to rebel forces battling to overthrow Gadhafi in 2011.

The rebels that the U.S. financially and morally backed in Libya and now Syria, are primarily Salafists and they have no interested in Americans or American ways, however they were happy to received billions of dollars of support in military aid to carry on their fight and overthrow Libya.

Of course they were interested during the Iraq war when many of the same Islamists engaged American troops on a regular basis, forming the militias that banded together with other common enemies of the U.S. war machine.

I knew in late March when I wrote, Anti-Gaddafi Benghazi Rebels Repay West by Trashing WWII Graves, that the west had clearly backed the wrong horse. These people that the west gave so much money to, kicked down the graves of WWII British soldiers who were killed by the Germans. They were war heroes who deserved more. Of course the same 'friends of the U.S.' also ripped down a large Christian cross from the same cemetery.

Some journalists, many in fact, backed the rebels. Yvonne Ridley explained in a report from Benghazi in eastern Libya on 29 April, why she was wrong to oppose Western intervention in Libya, which she came to accept "was necessary to avoid the bloodbath Libyan mafia chief Muammar Gaddafi had planned for Libyans for daring to rise up against him". Of course Yvonne, a very nice person that I do like, is the reporter who was captured and released by Taliban, a group known for surprising foresight and intelligence-oriented extreme religious intolerance. I don't like implying that she was used as a tool, but there is a big difference between Muslims and radical Islamists. There is a big difference that Americans by and large don't even begin to understand.

Taking the political opportunity, Mitt Romney said it is never too early for the United States govt to condemn attacks and I say it is never too late to learn from national mistakes carried out for all of the wrong reasons.

What we learned from Gaddafi, a longtime friend of the United States in many ways, is that he made the mistake of trusting the U.S. not to turn on him when the timing offered itself. He was a friend of the Americans, just like Ho Chi Minh, Saddam Hussein and Usama bin Laden. It is disgusting that the fog surrounding this simple truth is so damned thick.

In “Audacity of Hope”, page 261, Barack Hussein Obama writes: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” LOOK IT UP FOR DIRECT "IN CONTEXT" MEANING! A Muslim will love to say or recite Kalima Tayyab, "There is no god except Allah, and Mohammad." 200 years from now, I want their (radical Islamists) children’s children’s children to cower and cringe in fear whenever they hear the sounds of jet engines overhead because their legends tell of fire from the sky. I want them to hide in dark caves and holes in the earth, shivering with terror whenever they hear the roar of diesel engines because the tales of their ancestors talk about metal monsters crawling over the earth, spitting death and destruction. I want their mothers to be able to admonish them with “If you don’t behave, the Pale Destroyers will come for you”, and that will be enough to reduce them to quivering obesience. I want the annihilation to be so complete that their mythology will tell them of the day of judgment when the stern gods from across the sea .. the powerful ‘Mericans .. destroyed their forefathers’ wickedness.

Editor: Have you ever spent a single day not living in extreme fear and paranoia?  I feel sorry for your misguided ignorance.

The west goes into the middle east for "humanitarian" reasons, only leading to mass chaos, death and destruction far beyond what already existed: How about alCIAda? the same Al Qaeda that the US created in the first place? The same Al Qaeda that the US supported in Libya and is now supporting in Syria? The same Al Qaeda that always manages to carry out some news-worthy act that fits in perfectly with the agenda of continued US invasions of Israel's enemies? THAT Al Qaeda? and Libya?: Not counting the fact that the US invaded their country, wrecked the place, murdered their leader, destroyed their state bank and value based currency, installed a puppet regime, and imposed a private central bank on them, but outside of all that, there is indeed no justification for the Libyan people to dislike the United States Government. Ron Paul is the only one that predicted these outcomes..view it for yourself. This is why the banker owned GOP, and the banker owned mainstream media cheated and lied to keep Ron's views out of mainstream. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rkDLgzHnKIandfeature=player_embedded

Obama and literally all the democrats have been bragging about killing Usama for over a year now. Of course none of those parasites have probably even fired a weapon. Are they not the same people who mocked Bush? Well these bastards lit the fuse, now we see that we really have no choice, and the war begins here at home. But you brain dead morons see no problem with obama and his policies and you will vote for him because you all want something for nothing. So Tim you like those food stamps and the other free stuff we conservatives provide your family because you cannot even feed yourself!?

Tim King: Food stamps?  Look, we have had a hard time financially but we have an increasing reputation in this world for telling raw truth and hey, sometimes I write about things like Fast and Furious that even you agree with, no?  Anyway, I just want peace in this world, and I am not surprised nor is anyone else, that raw unflinching truth is hard to get sponsors for.  You should give the insults a rest.
