If People Don’t Need Weapons To Resist Tyranny…

then why did Obama send arms to Libya?

The Obama administration secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year, but US officials later grew alarmed as evidence grew that Qatar was turning some of the weapons over to Islamist militants, according to US officials and foreign diplomats.

No evidence has emerged linking the weapons provided by the Qataris during the uprising against Moammar Khadafy to the attack that killed four Americans at the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in September.

But in the months before, the Obama administration clearly was worried about the consequences of its hidden hand in helping arm Libyan militants, concerns that have not previously been reported. The weapons and money from Qatar strengthened militant groups in Libya, allowing them to become a destabilizing force since the fall of Khadafy.

If governments don’t use arms to control their populace and create tyranny, then why did Obama send F-16s and weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt?

The US government is sending an arms shipment to Egypt – a former US ally that just elected an anti-American Islamic regime into power.
The Arab Times reported, via Lucianne:

Amnesty International has called on the United States to clarify the final destination of an arms shipment it said was headed to Egypt, in a statement late on Thursday.

The London-based rights group had earlier said the shipment may be abused by Egyptian security forces, which had fired at protesters in deadly protests in recent months.

But the US Navy said the shipment would not be offloaded in Egypt without clarifying its final destination, the London-based organisation said in a subsequent statement.

Amnesty says the Dutch-flagged vessel, MV Schippersgracht, which left the US Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point (MOTSU), is “carrying a class of dangerous goods that covers cartridges for weapons, fuses and other ammunition” and is headed to Egypt’s Port Said.
Port Said is situated on the northern tip of the Suez Canal, which leads to the Red Sea and several countries that receive weapons from the United States.

And the Obama regime expects us to give up our guns?

From my cold, dead hands.

  1. Ah, one of the guys who was killed in the Benghazi attack is on record in a CBS interview just a month earlier specifically saying his job in Libya was to collect the weapons that Obama had given the rebels and which they had then forwarded to “unapproved” militants. Are we sure this isn’t “proof” of an Obama Administration to the weapons that were used against the guys in our installation? Maybe we need to define “connected?”

    Good post, Boss. ;-)

  2. I hear that if you’ve got cold hands, you definitely have a warm heart. Now, I don’t know what they say about cold feet…..

    Truly, I do not understand why people do not see, or comprehend, what is in front of their very faces (or is it underneath their noses?) Same thing, I reckon. I have a bad feelin the itshay is gonna hit the anfay……if you know what I eanmay.

  3. Saw a movie the other night which Everyone should see or at least know about….”For Greater Glory”….starring Andy Garcia and Eva Longoria ( with Peter O’Toole in a Cameo)……
    I like Andy Garcia a Lot and my wife thought Eva Longorrria was “really pretty”….and they both do a Good job, and it is very well shot…..1920′s Mexico is capturee well. The movie is about the True story of the Cristeros in Mexico in 1926……The Communist Gov’t had outlawed the Catholic Church and even started killing parishoners and foriegn priests.

    This is a Story about the Importance of Standing up for what you believe, Religious Freedom ( 1st Amendment rights) and the importance of an ARMED populace……This happened in our Backyard…..I must admit I didn’t know much about this…..probably because our Gov’t/Education System doesn’t WANT a TTrue updated version of 1776 being taught about something that happened in the 20TH Century !!!

    Those who are Catholic should show this to their Brethren who voted for this Obama Tyrant !! … It is a good lesson for all.

    Same lessons as the Tyrranny of 1776 …. the Story never changes….Oligarchs and Oppression …its Newest Version is beginning here, now.

  4. If governments don’t use arms to control their populace and create tyranny

    I think it’s one of the reasons Jefferson didn’t like standing armies.

  5. I’d say it’s also one of the reasons most of our Founders thought the citizens needed to be armed AS WELL AS the standing army. Over and over, they brought up the possibility that the citizens might need to use their rifles (not muskets as the idiots are trying to contend) to slap the government upside the head whenever it got too big for its britches.

    • Many colonists possessed rifles, while the British troops used muskets.
      Muskets are easier to re-load than rifle and more appropriate for the massed in-line tactics.
      The Musket was accurate to 50-75, maybe 100 yards on a good day.

      The rifled flintlock, while slower to re-load than a musket, was accurate out to 300 yards.

      It can be argued the colonists were better armed than the Government’s military troops.

      • It SHOULD be argued that they were better armed and that’s one reason the United States exists today. There are idiots on the web insisting that the only right to bear arms that the Constitution could possibly have guaranteed was for muskets. Historic ignoramuses rule.
