USA: "Is he our bastard?"

Sydney Morning Herald - UN votes for action to stop Gaddafi


The UN Security Council has unanimously passed a vote calling for "all necessary measures" against forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

The vote - 10-0, with five abstentions, including Russia and China - will allow foreign enforcement of a no-fly zone over Libya and ground Colonel Gaddafi's air force, reportedly as early as today.

The BBC reports that attacks on forces loyal to Gaddafi by the British and French air forces could begin within hours of the UN passing resolution 1973, with anti-aircraft defences the likely first targets.

One could argue the UN is interfering with a domestic issue (of rebellion) of the sovereign state of Libya, but nonetheless I support stopping the dictator from his nefarious killing of his own people.

Now, contrast the hypocrisy of the USA and Western Europe in their condonation and ‘act dunno’ of the following:

Sydney Morning Herald -
Bahrain armed forces fire on protesters after martial law declared


Military and security forces have moved against thousands of anti-government protesters occupying a landmark square in Bahrain's capital after the king declared a three-month state of emergency and instructed the military to tackle unrest.

Ali Al Aswad, a member of Bahrain's opposition Wefaq party, said the government was using helicopters to shoot at protesters and called for international intervention. ''The security forces are killing the people, we call upon UN to help us,'' he told al-Jazeera.

Financial Times -
Troops fire on Bahraini protesters


Bahrain’s armed forces opened fire on protesters in the capital Manama on Friday as demonstrators across the Arab world defied security forces to support the extraordinary wave of popular uprisings across the region.

The Bahraini military shot at a crowd, some of whom were holding flowers or chanting “peaceful, peaceful, peaceful”, as they tried to reoccupy a roundabout that has become a symbol of this week’s uprising in the small Arab kingdom.

In tense and chaotic scenes, ambulances arrived to pick up the wounded, several of whom were bleeding heavily.

“See what they are doing, is this democracy?” cried one demonstrator. “I have nothing, what do you expect, I only want to eat,” said another man.

Domestic issue no doubt but will the UN or USA or Western Europe intervene as they plan to now do in Libya? Will they be a no-fly zone imposed?

But read on …

Yahoo News -
Saudi sends troops, Bahrain Shi'ites call it "war"

Whoa, now wouldn’t this be an invasion by foreign troops?

What will the USA do now, yes that USA, self-proclaimed leader of the free world, free speech and democracy, changer of evil regimes?

The same Yahoo news article reported that the White House said the United States did not consider the arrival of Saudi security forces as an invasion.

Of course not, as there’s no greater hypocrite in this world than the USA, with Western Europe a close second. That the USA has a huge base in Bahrain (Juffair) to protect its oil interests may also explain its refusal to intervene in a blatant case of human rights violation as Bahraini government troops poured fire on protestors (mainly Shiites).

Incidentally it has just asked non-essential US family members at its bases to leave Bahrain, an indication it is expecting worse, but hey, nothing to merit US intervention.

The hypocritical US is, as usual, protecting its local dictators, like it did for ex Nicaraguan dictator, Anastazio Somoza, and (initially) for Mubarak, the Saudi royalty, once the Shah of Iran and Saddam Hussein, Pakistani military dictators, Vietnam's Ngo brothers and a list of military strongmen, former Uzbekistan dictator Islam Karmov, Afghanistan current president Kazai and a host of other pocket dictators.

As US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt once said of Anastazio Somoza: “He might be a bastard, but he’s our bastard”.

And the USA is the BIGGEST bastard of them all!


  1. Agree that they are being hypocritical as usual, but the Saudi troops were invited in, so it's not war.

  2. //the Saudi troops were invited in, so it's not war//

    Suharto also claimed in 1975 that the Indon troops were "invited" into East Timor by anti-Fretilin politicians.

    Saddam Hussein also claimed in 1991 that the Iraqi troops were "invited" into Kuwait.

    Emperor Hirohito also claimed that in 1931 the Jap troops were were "invited" into Manchuria by Pu Yi.

    Hitler also claimed that German troops were "invited" into Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland.

    You dumpkoff, it all boils down to who issued the invitation.

  3. “He might be a bastard, but he’s our bastard”.

    Patton also quipped "Do not die for your (American) country, make the bastard on the other side die for his country"

  4. Ktemoc,
    Read this before making further comment

    Plus watch the clip

  5. Thank you looes74, what about Bahrain? What are the USA, Britain, France and other western european countries doing about the government's murder of peaceful protestors there?

  6. King Fahd in 1993:

    "I summon my blue-eyed slaves anytime it pleases me. I command the Americans to send me their bravest soldiers to die for me. Anytime I clap my hands a stupid genie called the American ambassador appears to do my bidding. When the Americans die in my service their bodies are frozen in metal boxes by the US Embassy and American airplanes carry them away, as if they never existed. Truly, America is my favorite slave."

  7. He backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

    He's backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Gaza, Judea and Samaria.

    He backed the brutal mullahcracy in Iran during the Iranian people's bloody march for freedom.

    He's backed Hezb'Allah in Lebanon.

    He's backed Islamic law at the UN in co-sponsoring a resolution on the restriction of free speech.

    And he is backing Al Qaeda in Libya.
    Libya: the West and al-Qaeda on the same side

  8. If Saudi Arabia had no petroleum, the Americans would had shunned it as they did with Rwanda and Somalia.

  9. Obama is Gadaffi`s bastard

  10. mongolia mongolia mongolia

    britain here mongolian goes.

    ha2, just for shopping by mongolian.

    heard in street star is joining mongolian.

  11. Anon of 1:56 PM, March 21, 2011, re backing for al Qaeda, the Yanks put forward that same lie about Saddam Hussein, on the instructions of their Hebrew masters.

    Gaddafi is Sunni and would never support Shia Iran or Hezbollah. As for supporting Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, good on him.

    By the way, your use of of the names Judea and Samaria shows your allegiance, an Israeli or neocon Zionist Yank or pro-Israeli neocon Zionist Malaysian wakakaka
