Remember when nations across the world were kvetching about America after we invaded Iraq? What was it that libs said? “How did Bush squander the sympathy of the world after 9/11?” We tried to tell them the truth. Nobody squandered anything. The world’s just full of greedy, self-centered people who want America to do all the dirty work they’re afraid to do while they sit on the sidelines, with their hands clean, and tell everyone what a great job they’d do if they were to ever get off their behinds.
Well, this time around, the Left is getting a taste of how the world really works at lightning fast speed,
Arab support for the US-led war in Libya showed signs of fraying today in reaction to the sheer destructive power of the initial attack, claims of civilian deaths and a warning by Muammar Gaddafi to prepare for “a long war”.
The secretary-general of the Arab League, Amr Moussa, appeared to wobble just over a week after his organisation, which represents 23 Arab states, voted in favour of a no-fly zone. Pictures of charred bodies led to not only the Arab League but also Russia and China expressing regret over the violence. Moscow claimed the US-led coalition was going beyond its UN mandate to protect civilians and called for an end to the “indiscriminate use of force”.
…But Moussa, in comments carried by an Egyptian news agency, was quoted as saying: “What is happening in Libya differs from the aim of imposing a no-fly zone. What we want is the protection of civilians and not a bombardment of more civilians.” A UK government source claimed his comments had suffered from mistranslation.
Did Obama really squander their goodwill that fast? Granted, he is REALLY weak and incompetent, but not even Obama could futz things up that quickly. The only real mistake would be expecting anyone to genuinely appreciate our trying to help.
