Leon Panetta wasted no time once he became the US Defense Secretary advancing the Responsibility to Protect Doctrine and simultaneously moving forward with massive defense cuts meant to neuter our military defenses and leave America weak and vulnerable on the international battle field. He shares a vision with Barack Obama of our military morphing from a true defense force into more of an international police force under the United Nations through R2P. Our nuclear capabilities will be massively cut back in favor of stronger ground, air and naval forces.
MONTEREY, Calif., Aug. 23, 2011 – Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta today called U.S. support for the NATO mission that’s helping opposition forces make progress against Moammar Gadhafi’s regime Libya an example of the international cooperation that will be critical in the future.
“It is a good indication of the kind of partnership and alliances that we need to have for the future if we are going to deal with the threats that we confront in today’s world,” Panetta told students during addresses at both the Naval Postgraduate School and Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center.
The Arab Spring, the name given to recent revolutions for democracy throughout the Middle East, is bringing change and in many cases, turmoil to the region, Panetta said. But it also offers “a chance to make that part of the world a better region, one that enjoys some of the values and some of the reforms and some of the political opportunities that we have in this country,” he said.
Savor that last paragraph for a minute. The Arab Spring was something this administration wanted. It was meant to begin a worldwide leveling of the political playing field so that a global government could assume the reins of power, with a chosen few at the helm.
Attacking Libya was unconstitutional, period. We attacked a country with no provocation, whose brutal reign pales in comparison with Iran’s evil empire and others in the Middle East. Libya was a military R2P testing ground and Obama and Panetta have found it very good indeed for their purposes. But as the US, NATO and the UN declare victory in Libya, the conflict is not over yet. The Rebels seem to be in control of Tripoli, but Qadhafi is still at large and there is the minor annoyance of WMDs floating around. But those are tiny details, right? I mean, it’s only the Middle East. Nothing bad ever happens there.
As I predicted some time ago, Libya is just the opening act for R2P. Enter Syria next. Which should be very interesting considering their ties with Iran. And Iran’s ties with Russia and China. Global chaos, wealth redistribution and power grabs. I can’t wait to see how it turns out. That’s if I’m still alive after they finish.
Suddenly, after watching thousands being slaughtered, our State Department is beginning to slap Syria’s hands. I doubt that they suddenly grew a conscience – more likely it’s the next step in a battle plan that totally drains our military in strength and finances forwarding the goal of bringing America to her knees.
But wait, there’s more! Yep, we are embroiled in another conflict in Yemen. What’s that you say? You hadn’t heard? What’s the media good for? Absolutely nothing!
