Just put these two stories from Weasel Zippers together, let them rattle around your cranium, and then gasp in horror at the stupidity of what the Obama administration is considering.
Fox News reports:
A U.S. NATO commander does not rule out an Al Qaeda presence in the Libya opposition against Muammar al-Qaddafi.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said on Tuesday that the Obama administration has not ruled out arming Libya’s rebels as an option for trying to end Muammar Gaddafi’s 41-year rule.
Sooooo let me just get this straight, the Libyan rebels may very well be Islamic Al Qaeda nutjobs, according to the U.S. government, and yes they’re considering arming them. Huh?
Wasn’t this supposed to be a humanitarian mission? That’s like putting Chuck Norris in charge of the peace corps. It just doesn’t make sense.
And think about this- we may arm Muslim radicals in a country where a minority population of Christians are already in hiding and living in fear.
Hey Obama administration here’s the math: Islamic nutjobs + arms = Genocide of Christians. Our last two ventures into the Middle East ended with the arrest, persecution and/or slaughter of Christians in Afghanistan and Iraq. And now we’re going to arm Islamic militants in Libya? Do we not learn? I guess they’re just Christians though. They kinda’ have it coming.
