President Obama, under the spell of his three witches – Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and Samantha Power - took the United States into an illegal war against Colonel Gaddafi in Libya. Lacking any marshall spirit, the President hid his actions behind a supposed NATO hammer. It is now apparent that the hammer is broken and that NATO is losing the war against an isolated Colonel. How have the might fallen on the field of battle!
NATO’s springtime expeditionary force has lost all momentum in the desert sand. As the campaign enters into its fourth month, the coalition is already fraying, not least in the United States, where the President had his knuckles firmly rapped for unconstitutional behavior this week by the House of Representatives. Libya is simply not big enough for impeachment proceeding to begin. But his three witches may find themselves strung up for sorcery in the not too far distant future.
NATO has clearly shown that it cannot punch its way out of a paper bag. It has flown more than 4,700 strike sorties, pummeled bunkers , depots and vehicles, some belonging to the Colonel, many belonging to its supposed allies, including significant numbers of civilians. That is what happens when low-calibre pilots cannot hit their targets, and when drones are misdirected by incompetent handlers.
Just imagine how little time it would have taken General George Patton to deal with Libya, given a few tanks and sufficient gasoline! General Patton would not have exceeded his time schedule. Nor would he have moaned and whined about bad luck and difficult terrain.
So incompetent are NATO forces in hitting their targets that they have become allies of Colonel Gaddafi. Libyans now realize that the Colonel at least is competent and likely is more sane than those who have instigated the NATO intervention. ‘Allah protect Colonel Gaddafi’, they now chant, as NATO missiles take out their schools and hospitals, their colleagues and their families.
Well done President Obama! You sure know how to back losers in all aspects of your administration.
