Libya

So, the stories of 21 Coptic Christians from Egypt, being beheaded broke. It sent shock waves through the world. Not ones that cause for outrageous outrage and shit-sandwich think-pieces, but the kind that of makes everyone be quite.

Noah Rothaman wrote this, now a haunting foreshadowing, on the speed at which a global jihad grows and how the media down plays that very real fact. He gave it scope and scale. I highly recommend reading his analysis.

You young millennials find yourself, in a fight you didn’t start. Your enemy doesn’t care that you don’t care about them, it’s a non sequitur.

This particular atrocity occurred in the very country where then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, had an embassy over ran. It’s in the place where America had it’s first foreign incursion. If you can’t see the symbolism, you’re probably daft.

So what do we do? Hang the President out to dry and totally ruin our foreign policy or act?

I say we act, the president is lame duck. Let him quack. “He needs to stop this”, is what the next presidential Democratic candidate is telling this current administration. And the next likely Democratic candidate is the very former Secretary of State, who mismanaged Libya, to begin with. I can’t imaging she’d want the issue bogging down her campaign. I’m almost positive Mrs. Clinton doesn’t want to inherit this regional clusterfuck. She has enough to worry about with her accepting money from foreign governments and sending insecure emails. That damage control is a handful. 

Update:

The Egyptian military plans to hit the militant Islamist in Libya who beheaded Egyptian civilians with airstrikes.

Creating a new buzz phrase “Arab Neocon. Coined by the Middle Eastern consultant and a driving force behind the “Arab Spring Manifesto” in Norway, Iyad El-Baghdadi. 

 These “Arab Neocons” want to institute political, social, and religious reform but without due process – imposed through force and money.-Iyad El-Baghdadi.  

Update: the situation is still pretty bad, new factions are conducting airstrikes in Lybia.
