Rebels Displaying Trophy Corpses of Gaddafis they Just Executed in Captivity...
Reaganite Republican ^ | October 22, 2011 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 10/22/2011 6:36:56 AM PDT by Reaganite Republican

And in a butcher shop (!)

What's up next, string 'em from a bridge...?

They were screaming "Allahu Akbar" when they finished him offjust like Al Qaeda does it, how bout that.
While we still do not know who the rebels we just boosted to power actually are (yet plenty of reason to suspect the worst- i.e. packed with AQ and Muslim Brotherhood types), hey, we're about to find out. 

Alas, so far-so bad, as they're already committing war crimes, up to and including summary executions... which appears to be just what happened to ole Muammar and out-of-luck son Mutassim. The UN and ICC suspect as much, as both were shown alive on film in captivity, only to die of multiple gunshot wounds soon afterward while while the country's new NTC 'leadership' releases myriad B.S. accounts of what actually happened. Already there are calls for an investigation before Clown Boy swims with the fishes.

Yet while they don't mind shooting prisoners, the rag-tag rebel force is no army- they didn't have to be with NATO warplanes taking it to the regime while they swept-in afterwards and shot anything still moving... which is precisely what happened in the capture and subsequent illegal  murder of Muammar Gaddafi. 

What is Obama planning to do when they start lining up 'collaborators' against the wall over there? How many Blue helmets is the UN going to be willing to send in with the place swimming in guns?

Instead of bringing desperately needed security in the wake of the regime's collapse -even if they were able- the masses of armed, now experienced and adrenalin-fueled men currently roaming the country sporting ammo belts like Rambo will likely stress along the same tribal/clan/ethnic lines that are about bring chaos to most of Libya.  And not only does the rebel 'army' not have the capability to control the country, the only thing unifying these men -hatred of the Gaddafi regime- is gone, so now it's back to 'me, mine, and the tribe'... just watch.

I agree. Celebrating such barbarity invites it in kind in the future, for one thing. What goes around comes around, as ye sow so shall ye reap. We didn’t go on an orgy of killing involving desecration of corpses following WWII, we practiced restraint and remained civilized.

Apparently, our State department has not yet learned the difference between an American style revolution and a French style revolution. This is rapidly turning into a French style revolution

Amen. Even the Nazi's surrendered in a civilized manner once caught, and we accepted their surrender graciously, not like animals.

Those were the days of when “men were men and gals were gals”.

They went out of their way to surrender to us and the allies at the end. They had an idea what the commies were going to do to them and knew it wouldn't end well...

AND they also wore uniforms, as did we. These animals do not. Instead they try to blend into the public, hiding behind women and children.

Personally, I think we should just remove ALL troops from those areas and glass all their a$$es.

Why put our military in such grave danger to such ungrateful animals.

Hillary was just over there a few days prior, she gave a public speech to students

"We hope he can be captured or killed soon so that you don't have to fear him any longer," Clinton told students and others at a town hall-style gathering in the capital city.

Until now, the U.S. has generally avoided saying that Qaddafi should be killed.

Hilliary also wants to send millions in new U.S. aid

It’s amazing. We witness something sufficiently barbaric that can turn even Gaddafi into a sympathetic figure of sorts while Obama takes victory laps in the Rose garden. What now Mr. President?

What frosts me is that Obama has put his presidential seal of approval ON BEHALF OF THE UNITED STATES AND ALL OF US on the assassinations, murders and bestialities being perpetrated by these throwback muzzie fanatics.

Count me out.

These fanatics SPIT on any civilized behavior whether military or civil, any codes of ethics and/or honor, any Geneva-type treaties and agreements and any checks on barbaric behavior in combat.

Obama is with the enemy at the gates. Everyone should know this by now.

I was thinking the same thing... if you told me in the 80s I’d be defending Gaddafi someday I’d have laughed at you

But more than him personally, I only care about US interests, little more- and imho we had Gaddafi tamed nicely

More problems now, and we have to pay for the transition to an Islamic republic, great

The radicals over there know that Obama is killing Muslim leaders just to: 1. save his own job 2. He wants the Muslim Brotherhood to be in charge of those countries.

How many have been assassinated under his watch?

What makes Obama think they won't go on a jihad and send someone here to do the same thing?
This scares me. While I don't like anything Obama has done since taking office, I want him sent packing from losing the election or being impeached.
If even a small group of those barbarians decided to pay him and this country back for our interference in there world, no SS is going to be able to stop them.
Obama and Hillary have opened a can of worms and it will be hard to replace that lid.

And your point is?

A harsh dose of reality here folks.

Islam has never ever experienced any of the cultural moderation that Christianity experienced during the Renaissance, Reformation, and Counter-Refrormation movements. It is just as violent a religion and supporting culture as Christianity was in the 11th through 14th centuries.

As such, the death and mutilation of Gaddafi was to be expected. Husain's capture and trial were American and American backed operations. If the average Iraqi had captured him we would have never known about it.

American jurisprudence stops at the water's edge unless there American troops present. Do I like this fact? Not really. But, I have seen the cruelty that abounds in this world and recognize that my feelings will not change things outside the US.

The key word there is "after", right?

Because it was a very different story "during". Especially in the Pacific against the Japanese.

I'm not saying that to be judgmental - war is brutal (and the Pacific war especially so) and people exposed to its brutality, especially over long periods, understandably become detached and numb to it. The Libyan rebels had suffered for generations under Qaddafi's oppressive and violent rule, and some measure of leeway should be granted to them. I'd as much fault them for behaving this way towards his corpse as I would to the US Marines on Guadalcanal who took to displaying severed Japanese heads on tanks.

Uh, yea, *following* WWII.

During WWII? That’s a wholly different story.

During Korea? Again, a wholly different story.

During Vietnam? Different story again.

But following? There we’ve been a model of restraint... as opposed to the actions of (eg) the Russians following the fall of Berlin...

Only Americans are (in the majority) naive enough to think that other nations will follow our example in revolutions.

The abundance of evidence in the world is that the dominate “revolution model” is that of the French.

We’re the exception, not the rule.

Summary executions on the battlefield would have reduced the need for a GTMO and assured that the terrorists in question could not be released to strike again.

A living, escaped KQGHadaffi could have hired a mercenary force to take back Libya. Dead, he can’t do it. Even though there were no good guys in that conflict, the winners did the right thing.

Well, he reaped what he sowed.

BTW, another prototype for how ol’ Mo just died was the “trial” and execution of Nicolae Ceausescu and his wife, Elena. They were the tin-pot commie despots of Romania until ‘89.

The people rose up, the military rose with them, and the Ceausescu’s were given a trial that lasted all of about 20 minutes, I guess, with Nicolae refusing to answer any questions, much less recognize the authority of the court. After that little dog-n-pony show (which was broadcast like radio theatre), they were taken away, their hands bound behind their backs, they were taken outside, stood up against a stone walled and guns down by three men with AK-47’s, then covered with tarps.

They might be embarrassed now, but back then, the people were tired of starvation and living under the thumb of a couple of people who were madder than hatters.

There are still hard-line commie loyalists today who were making up conspiracy theory stories that they (the Ceausescus) were not shot, that they had fled the country somehow and were still living. Let’s put aside the fact that they’d be in their 90’s now, let’s just deal with the conspiracy theories.

The issue got so bad that the authorities in Romania exhumed the bodies, took DNA samples and tested them against the only known living son:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/11/03/AR2010110301858.html

Thugs and tyrants should receive this sort of end. It is the only thing that gets through their thick skulls. It would be better yet if their bodies were torn apart and hung from lamposts, but hey, we can’t have everything.

When “international law” prevails and these sorts of thugs get to die in their beds at a ripe old age (as did Pol Pot, responsible for over a million executions and deaths in Cambodia), it sends a very wrong message to these types of people.

You’re going to need to see past the current situation and think about the wonderful future ability to shut down things like French carping about how we conduct wars in the future.

In the future, when the French start acting, well, *French* when we’re in some international op, we can point back at this administration and say “We’re not doing anything different than the President upon whom you conferred the Nobel Peace Prize when he was in office the first month. We’re merely following his example...”

and the Euro-weenies will have to STFU.

I view these sorts of developments with an eye to the long game. In the long game, they’re absolutely wonderful developments, because we will be able to so successfully shut down any bellyaching by European pecksniffs in the future when:

1. We enter a country with spec-ops troops, without declaring war, assault a private residence and shoot occupants inside in cold blood and leave without so much as a “hi” or “goodbye!”

2. Bomb other countries without declaring war or even registering a complaint in the UN. This includes zapping people we don’t like with missiles from the air.

3. We back a violent revolution (eg, like this one in Libya) that displaces someone who gets in the way of delivering oil.

4. We conservatives protest that a Republican POTUS didn’t do any of these things (because we might not need to) and yet, he wasn’t awarded the Peace Prize.

This episode of four years of “wise diplomacy” will yield guffaws and yuks for decades to come.
