- Will Obama take credit for capturing and killing Gaddafi?

UPDATE I: What will a post-Gaddafi Libya look like … Say hello to Sharia law. The interim ruler unveils more radical than expected plans for Islamic law. Remember that only 41% actually agreed with Obama to take military action in Libya as we are reminded by the Gateway Pundit.
Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, the chairman of the National Transitional Council and de fact president, had already declared that Libyan laws in future would have Sharia, the Islamic code, as its “basic source”.
But that formulation can be interpreted in many ways – it was also the basis of Egypt’s largely secular constitution under President Hosni Mubarak, and remains so after his fall.
Mr Abdul-Jalil went further, specifically lifting immediately, by decree, one law from Col. Gaddafi’s era that he said was in conflict with Sharia – that banning polygamy.

The Muslim Brotherhood wins another one. It is unfortunate that many in the US are unaware of exactly what Sharia Law means. It controls every aspect of one’s life, from which hand you use to eat to mutilation of the genitals of little girls. Beheadings, stonings, amputation of limbs.
Polygamy, Burqas, repression of women, beating one’s wife, but does proscribe how large the stick may be. This is what we have facilitated in Libya. We have nothing to be proud of.
A sign of things to come?
The self-appointed transitional government of Libya could not waiting for the collective voice of the people to speak in the “promised” upcoming democratic election prior to imposing Sharia Law.
Transitional Leader Calls for Sharia Law as Country Celebrates Liberation
Published October 23, 2011
The transitional government leader Mustafa Abdul-Jalil called on Libyans to show “patience, honesty and tolerance” and eschew hatred as they embark on rebuilding the country at the end of an 8-month civil war.
Abdul-Jalil set out a vision for the post-Qaddafi future with an Islamist tint, saying that Islamic Sharia law would be the “basic source” of legislation in the country and that existing laws that contradict the teachings of Islam would be nullified.
If you call sharia and islam stable than yes. Of course, sharia and islam are all about death and hate.
Oh yes, I forgot pedophilia. The Prophet married a six year old girl and commsumated the marriage when she was nine. This is acceptable under Sharia Law because Muslims consider Mohammed to be the example of a perfect man; a man to be emulated.
The freedom fighters got promoted one rank… such a fine reward for attempting to free their country of a mad dictator who terrorized, not only, his own people; but the free world, as well. Now, even with Ghadafi dead, one has to wonder if their work is complete as the freedom they yearned for continues to allude them. Viewing film and photographs of a population with every sign of a repressive existance complete with children waving their handless arms in jubilation, I can only guess how they feel about the stringent laws of Allah being the first step in their liberation. Maybe they haven’t a clue about a God who holds out a blanket of forgiveness to catch them when they fall short of His glory and sees them, not as Gods, but as human beings with inherent sin. Judge not lest thee be judged and let him without sin throw the first stone.
P.S. I read over the weekend Christians formed a protest in Egypt because of the burning destruction of their temples and came face to face with opposition from armed government officials who open fired upon them leaving numerous protestors dead and even more injured. Mu thoughts and prayers are with them.
Stability in Libya? Probably…in the same way Afghanistan was stable under the Taliban.
Stable, if you mean prohibiting women from working or getting an education is stable.
Stable, if you mean that terrorists will be able to set up shop there is stable.
Stable, if you mean that the Muslim Brotherhood or Al Quaeda in Libya can call for the destruction of Israel or the United States is stable.
Will this mean that Libya will be less of a threat to the United States when Libya was under Gaddafi?
@#1-Babybear—this is what WE (Americans) have facilitated in Libya?
Well, Excuse the hell outta’ me, bear—but WHY IS EVERYTHING ALWAYS AMERICA’s FAULT?
While the atrocities you describe in Libya do exist there(and in many other Countries we could rattle names off of as well)- why again I ask do you accuse the US of being responsible?
Think its just easy to point fingers at 1 group or country.
History has taught us (and is teaching) that thats the best way to shift the attention.
this is sort of like what the democrats are trying their best to accomplish here.
obama’s people, muslims, are now in position to take several countries.
ever wonder why obama and his people did nothing to help these countries? this is what obama and his anit american ilk want, muslim takeover.
southernsue–I agree with you. In fact, I believe that Obama is a Muslim, foreign born, and as a Muslim his duty to the Koran and Islam is to defeat and kill infidels, (That would be us.)
He was born a Muslim as a son of a Muslim father. One doesn’t stop being a Muslim without dire consequences, in fact the Koran demands death to apostates. Not only did he not do anything to help these countries toward democracy, he helped facilitate the demise of the established governments, using the might of our military, leaving a vacuum so that the Muslim Brotherhood could take over. He is making it possible for these governments to fall like dominoes. This is his religious duty.
NGBoston–Ordinarily I would ignore someone shouting at me, but you obviously need a little education on the subject. This is the US’s fault because it was NATO, of whom we are a part, which caused the downfall of the government of Libya. While it was not the best government in the world, our actions in bombing Libya and urging our partners in NATO to do the same, caused the Libyans to fall under the governance of Sharia Law, the most cruel, repressive political philosophy the world has ever known. Living under the rule of Kadiffi was a picnic compared to what’s coming to the Libyans now. When one causes something to happen, it is generally regarded as the fault of the causer. Understand now?
a) France & UK were the first invloved, US was relactant.
b) The demise of those estasblished goverments……you do know what those goverments were doing and of what corrupt loonies they were composed?
c) those countries were already Islamic and isn’t democracy about free elections or does it only apply if they ellect ppl that we like?
d) there is no 1 Islam, just like Christianity there are several directions and they hate each other.
There is, however, one Koran.
US leads ‘Odyssey Dawn’ initial attack on Libya
The first major attack of “Odyssey Dawn” came as 112 Tomahawk cruise missiles struck surface-to-air missiles, early warning sites, and key communication modes. It’s the first step in enforcing a no-fly zone
Babybear- I didn’t shout, and OBVIOUSLY you are a MORON. I know well about NATO and what you describe but it was YOUR POST, and your critiquing that I took the wrong way.
I also don’t agree that even though I understand and believe most all of what you posted in #11 to Southern Sue- still do not think it is appropriate for you to pin that all on Obama (despite his leanings or religious faith or the US in general.)
I stand by my post and I have a right to disagree with your rude ass if I want.
A walk in the park?
If I’m not mistaken, the revolution was initiated by Libyans, for Libyans and a democratic society. If we are to live under man’s rulership, it should be a man of our choosing… and if one abuses his power, should he not be ousted? These are our principles and they don’t go away when the going gets tough. If its Sharia law they want, then they are intitled to it. Afterall, it’s their decision. It will be interesting to see what comes out of their election, while the world is in support of them, especially the free world. They’ve gotten a lot of support in their quest; give them time to take it ALL in. They didn’t even expect to get Ghadaf
.. but now that he’s dead, this interim ruler is suspect, paranoid and covering his own arse. Good to see we are seizing Ghadafi’s arsenal of land to air missiles…
Seizing them, as we speak. I wouldn’t give Obama any credit for the great job done by NATO. He’s a fine speaker, with a script and that’s about it!
the Koran and the bible have been oraly passed on before written down.
so the amount of facts and thruths are almost nil
It has been written by men…hence the totaly f** up women position in both religions.
i think obama knew this would happen. isn’t this what he wants for islam to take over the world ?
NG Boston. You certainly have a way with words. A rude, vulgar, ugly way. Obama supporter, I presume?
#22@ Bear- LOL
Uhmmmmmm, Obama Supporter! No thanks, not at all.
And since you insulted my intelligence first, it was fair game for me to tear you a new one.
Thanks for the compliments and let’s not argue like 6th Graders—what do you say?
I call a truce.
Your comment in #14 is exactly correct and the POINT. Quite alarming, isn’t it?
P.s. @ #22- Bear—Also- I re-read my original posts, and your responses. I was not vulgar in any way, IMO. Calling your ass rude is vulgar?
Anyway, I do so wish to remain peaceful but I also feel you really started the negativity simply because I didn’t agree with you.
I still really don’t, btw. Sorry.
Sorry to say but yes.
just like “tear you a new one”
#25-Dolf–you are certainly entitled to your own opinion.
But since you are not even an American Citizen, I could care less what you think or feel.
First you agreed with me and my original post further up on the thread. Then Babybear insults me and says I have no intelligence and now you are agreeing I was vulgar to him after I responded to his RUDE INSULT.
I did not insult him with my original post- so perhaps if you have been self-appointed the moral compass on this board- you should review his Post #12 to me.
As far as I’m concerned, I stand by my original post and shall not reduce myself to acting like a bratty 5 year old on this board.
This BS is off-topic- but no one is going to insult me PERSONALLY simply bc I chose to express my views on any given topic and get away with it.
And, no I am not sorry or will be issuing any apologies to your Dutch ass any time soon either.
If you feel that last comment is vulgar, then sucks to be you I guess.
Thats mature…your are not American so……
I did agree with you, however statements like “tearing you a new 1″ are rude period.
and you can be insulting without resorting to vulgair language.
At least thats how we grown ups act.
We don’t need words like ass etc to insult.
Re #26: What is wrong with you??? You honestly don’t think remarks like “eff you” and “your Dutch ass” and the insults you habitually post isn’t rude and vulgar??? Do you ever give a second thought to whether or not kids will be reading your posts? I’m guessing you wouldn’t make 10% of your remarks to a person’s face. So why do it here? “…sucks to be you I guess…” Wow!
This board is a forum to express ones thoughts and feelings the way they see fit.
I would certainly make all of these comments to a person’s face id need be.
So not sure what your post proved but whatever!
