Obama's Regime Change in Libya Goes to Sh*t

Getting rid of Gaddafi, seemed like a good idea at the time. I mean after we turned him into ally of sorts, then we turned on him and gave Libya to al-Qaeda.


The US says it has temporarily evacuated its staff from the Libyan capital Tripoli over security concerns.

Staff, including marine guards providing security to the embassy, have been transferred to Tunisia "due to the ongoing violence resulting from clashes between Libyan militias," it adds.

Secretary of State John Kerry said there was a "real risk" to staff.

It comes amid fierce clashes between rival militias in the capital, with intense fighting at Tripoli airport.

I mean is there any other way to describe the current situation in Libya. We all talk about how dangerous it is that ISIS has taken territory in Iraq that can be used to train terrorists and attack the west. Libya has been like that every since Obama pushed Gaddafi off the edge.

But "at this point what does it really matter."

I'm reading a lot of pundits that say doesn't Obama even care or notice these foreign policy problems exploding. Because you really can't say that he appears upset.

This reminds me of his youth in Indonesia, his mother wrote that he was constantly teased by the Indonesian boys for being black and that his mom was divorced from his father. Yes Indonesian kids were racist against the young black Obama. They noticed the black a lot more than the mixed, even though probably their skin tone is probably not more than a shade apart.

I bring this up because his mother noted how he could take it, how he could ignore the cruelty being thrown at him and appear to be aloof and happy despite the hardship. How he could withdraw from his tormentors and be happy on his own or with just a few friends, discarding the "bad".

This is a pretty admirable quality in Obama really. Its a toughness.

But in the current situation it people just can't get why he's not tore up.

But I'm not so sure showing the world how much we don't give a f*ck we can really dish out really isn't a pretty good idea.

ISIS takes half of Iraq, we don't give a f*ck. Russia takes Ukriane, we don't give a f*ck.

I mean if it wasn't for the ethnic cleansing and genocide against Christians in the war torn Muslim world I could almost not give a F8ck.

Anyway your thoughts on the We Don't Give Even Half a F*ck strategy in comments.

1 the don't give an F is really stupid and will end up in a lot less peace and the loss of many lives. people who bitch and complain about how the US has to do everything all the time really don't understand a thing about power nor the importance of US presence in the world. like it or not, the US is the only benevolent world power. Who are we going to let lead the world? China? Russia? Yeah, right, that'll work out well. You want to see the developing world exploited? Let China or Russia run the show for a while.

2 Everyone knows that we won't do anything. ...the dogs are unleashed.

During the cold war there was an understanding that we would indeed use nukes if needed. Does anybody think that is true now? No, it's not, so that threat is off the table. Russia (and others) can engage in traditional warfare without fear, also knowing we won't get involved in ANY way (militarily).

So, to all those liberals that lament our presence as an "imperial" power around the globe and want us to shut down our bases, this is what happens without that influence. When America is strong and has a presence the world is a more peaceful place, without her, those that wish to conquer will make their moves. Don't naively think the world has moved beyond such people, it is human nature.

...things are just getting started, thanks Obama.

3 Disassociation from reality may be tolerable, to a degree, in children, but in a supposed adult it's a symptom of a mental issue. In other words: he is a stark raving lunatic.

This is my opinion and it counts for absolutely nothing.

4 Excellent point, what is an admirable quality in the young Obama, becomes an enormous liability for the adult Obama who is the leader of the free world. Added to this an inability to pick competent friends and advisors or rather to pick them according to ideology, and we have the disaster we are all currently experiencing.

5 I dunno, The ISIS activists on Twitter thought we'd go ape shit already. Not giving a fuck seems to have confused them somewhat.

8 Pete said it all. Like it or not this not a nice world. We can get our hands dirty or let the lunatics rule the world. If we chose to "Not give a F_ck", it should be regarding what others think about us. America. F_CK YEAH..

10 I think Kerry needs to personally do a long fact finding mission in the Syrian no-mans-land, starting immediately and with no security to complicate his 'finding the truth'.
