Ronald Reagan saw this coming, and Barack Obama is making his prediction come true. Moammar Gaddafi got what was coming to him. Of course, the concern now is the jihadist and al-Qaeda elements that are positioned to replace him.
Moammar Gaddafi got what was coming to him. Of course, the concern now is the jihadist and al-Qaeda elements that are positioned to replace him. Years ago, Ronald Reagan called Gaddafi the "mad dog of the Middle East" and said that his goal was a worldwide "Muslim fundamentalist revolution."
Many others besides Gaddafi shared that goal, including those who opposed him, and with Gaddafi's death, that goal is closer than ever to being realized. Here we are, thirty years after Reagan made these remarks, in the throes of a worldwide Muslim fundamentalist revolution.
Reagan said that those who wanted this "Muslim fundamentalist revolution" were enemies of the United States -- for them it was "like climbing Mount Everest, because we are here." And in a sense, that is exactly the reason why. I don't know if Reagan ever read the Qur'an, but his remark indicates that he knew the larger reason why they were targeting the kafir, the great infidel nation. It was "because we are here" -- i.e., because we constitute the foremost obstacle to the overriding goal of Islam: we stand in the way of a world living under Islamic law.
Still, Reagan's warning of a worldwide "Muslim fundamentalist revolution" was prescient. Can you imagine the Muslim Brotherhood stooge in the White House ever uttering those words? Imagine: Ronald Reagan saw back then the objective of Islamic imperialism. He may not have appreciated the full scope of it, but he understood it. Clearly he believed that it could be contained. Reagan came into office, and the Ayatollah Khomeini released our hostages; the Islamic world was intimidated, cowed by Reagan's testicular fortitude.
Reagan made this statement before the jihad attack on the Khobar Towers, before the jihad attack on theUSS Cole, before the first attack on the World Trade Center, and the 7/7 attack in London, and the 3/11 attack on a train station in Madrid. Reagan warned of a worldwide "Muslim fundamentalist revolution" before the Islamic jihad massacre committed by Major Nidal Hasan at Fort Hood, Texas; before the Islamic jihad massacre in Bali; before the jihad massacre in Mumbai, and before the numerous thwarted attempts at jihad attacks in the United States over the last two years. Reagan spoke before the nearly 18,000 Islamic jihad terrorist attacks that have been committed since 9/11.
Reagan spoke before there was a significant Muslim presence in Europe. Now the threat and intimidation by Muslims throughout the countries of the European Union is growing at every level. And now Gaddafi is gone, but the threat of a worldwide "Muslim fundamentalist revolution" remains, and is stronger than ever, thanks to Barack Obama.
Jihadists, who were prominent among the resistance to Gaddafi from the very beginning of attempts to overthrow his government, recently revealed their goal of taking power in a post-Gaddafi government and creating an Islamic state. U.S. intelligence agencies announced this early in September. Where were these government agencies five months before that, when the uprisings began and were being universally hailed as bringing democracy and freedom?
If I knew, why didn't Barack Obama and the U.S. intelligence services? Readers of my website AtlasShrugs.com are not surprised by what is happening in Libya, as I warned about it back in March andseveral times in April. Yes, I told ya so. And I told you back in February that the Muslim Brotherhood would be taking over in Egypt.
Obama did this. Was there any thought in Washington to what we were doing in Libya when it became evident back in March that al-Qaeda was in and among the "rebel" faction? The question still has not been answered: how is al-Qaeda preferable to Gaddafi?
Obama spent billions of your money to assist in the Islamic takedown of yet another country. America, under Barack Obama's "leadership," did this. And America will pay. The Obama legacy will not only be the degenerate spending which led to the economic downfall of this country; he will also go down in history as the first anti-freedom leader whose foreign policy led to serious attempts to reestablish a universal caliphate across the world. I predicted all this in my book, The Post American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on Ame....
