The United States government is sending $25 million to Libya to buy food, uniforms, and equipment for the so called rebels there. If anyone still remembers last month when our air force first attacked Libya, we were told that we were enacting a no-fly-zone. I remember one advocate of the project saying even just a few planes would be better than nothing.
Of course when we started implementing this no-fly-zone, immediately bombs were hitting buildings that had nothing to do with the Libyan Air Force. We also bombed tanks and ground artillery. I’m pretty sure tanks and ground artillery do not fly.
I think it might have been getting a little embarrassing to the people trying to sell the conflict in Libya as a serious war, having these jerks driving around in civilian vehicles with civilian clothes on. Therefore it became necessary for the American people to buy them uniforms. Oh yes, and other equipment.
Does anyone remember way back when our troops first went to Iraq and the Pentagon failed to equip them to the point that we citizens were buying body armor to send to them? Not to mention the millions of poor people in the streets of the United States who could really use a nice new set of clothes.
In the beginning the illegality of this war was front and center in the news for about a week. I guess that was so if asked they could say, “Yeah we told the people it was illegal. They didn’t seem to mind so we went on ahead with the project.” And of course when they decide to invade yet another sovereign country and the people say, “Hey, no, you can’t do that.” They counter with, “Sure we can, we did it in Libya.”
This government has become completely detached from the people and though their power under the Constitution is supposed to come directly from us, we have absolutely no say in what they do. I know there are those who are going to say, “We can vote them out.” And that is true, but to what end?
Unless we vote someone in like Ron Paul who wants to return to the day when the people ruled the government rather than the government ruling the people, things are just going to continue to get worse. It is coming to the point that when the people are asked about their government all they can do is shake and hang their head in shame.
God help us to rediscover who we are.
