Arab League Criticizes Allied Air & Missile Strikes on Libya … Obama, Welcome to the Fickle Middle East
That did not take long, the Arab League is already criticizing the missile attack on Libya.
President Barack Obama just learned a “Middle East” lesson when it comes to dipping your toe into the Arab League waters. You are damned if you do and damned if you don’t. The criticism came less than 24 hours after international forces attacked Khadafi military forces to create a “no fly zone.” This after the Arab League begged for a no fly zone. What a shock, after drawing the world into a civil war conflict, the Arab League now says, ”the military operations have gone beyond what the Arab League backed”.
Amr Moussa says the military operations have gone beyond what the Arab League backed.
Moussa has told reporters Sunday that “what happened differs from the no-fly zone objectives.” He says “what we want is civilians’ protection not shelling more civilians.”
By the way, the Obama White House has billed this as an international military action; however, as AOL News points out, no Arab nation participated in Saturday’s military intervention and none are publicly supporting it.
In fact, the head of the Arab League criticized the international strikes today, saying they caused civilian deaths. Libya said 48 people were killed in the strikes but there was no other official confirmation.
Who could not have seen this coming? One would have to be a rank amateur novice to the ways of the Middle East if they thought the Arab League was going to back 100% a military action against another Muslin country. The Obama folks have “misunderstood” what is going on and had no business getting involved in another countries civil war. What country will the US get involved in next to protest citizens against a regimes brutal ways, Yemen, Syria, North Korea, China?
The White House suumonded VP Joe Biden to reassure the Arab League that the international coalition that they are merely trying to fulfill United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973.” This after the Obama White House has bent over backwards and made every statement and pre-apology that the military efforts against Libya is an international one and not an invasion or attack on a Muslim country.
Does any one really think this is going to he a quick in and out military action by the US as Obama’s minions are stating? If GWB was in office, they would be calling this a quagmire by weeks end.
