Arab League criticizes allied airstrikes on Libya, AFTER asking UN and the West to impose a no fly zone.

Posted by iusbvision on March 20, 2011

A new fly zone doesn’t just mean making sure nothing flies, it also means taking out all air defenses so those imposing the no fly zone are at the smallest risk.

AP:

CAIRO (AP) — The head of the Arab League has criticized international strikes on Libya, saying they caused civilian deaths.

The Arab League’s support for a no-fly zone last week helped overcome reluctance in the West for action in Libya. The U.N. authorized not only a no-fly zone but also “all necessary measures” to protect civilians.

Amr Moussa says the military operations have gone beyond what the Arab League backed.

Moussa has told reporters Sunday that “what happened differs from the no-fly zone objectives.” He says “what we want is civilians’ protection not shelling more civilians.”

U.S. and European strikes overnight targeted mainly air defenses, the U.S. military said. Libya says 48 people were killed, including civilians.

Enforce a no fly zone and take out certain armored elements, do all of that without scratching the paint. OK Arab league, how about we pull out and YOU show us how it’s done.

They are doing this to please radicalized elements of the Arab street who were angered by their governments asking for help.

Psychiatrist: Liberalism is a mental disorder

Posted by iusbvision on March 20, 2011

I would not say that this is true of all of them. As there are some who are elitist and genuinely believe that society cannot get buy without their guiding, ruling hand.

With that said, much of what is said certainly rings true.

Lisa Anderson Wright:

A veteran psychiatrist now claims that liberalism is a mental disorder, not purely a political choice.

“Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded,” said Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness.

“Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”

In other words, it’s not their fault. (That statement sounds suspiciously liberal to me.)

What I’m not cool with is behavior that clearly looks like liberal lunacy to me… behavior that I previously just chalked up to lousy parenting, pure ignorance or perhaps a shortage of oxygen in utero. I never imagined the craziness I witness daily on the left might actually be certifiable by professionals.

Here’s an example. Just because I’m a constitutional conservative, liberals love to libel me: they deign to know what I think, feel and believe. Newsflash to libs: I don’t share every single belief held by every single person on the right, just as many bible-carrying, pew-kneeling, rosary-bead-praying Catholics don’t subscribe to every single tenant of their religion. I know divorced Catholics, Catholics who’ve had abortions, Catholics who’ve texted nude pictures of themselves and surfed porn sites… I even know gay Catholics. The point is, they all still consider themselves Catholics.

I’m not insane: I know the futility of engaging or entering into discussions, debates and mudslinging about incendiary topics that inflame both sides of the aisle, like: abortion, gay marriage, gays in the miltary, Obama’s birth certificate, Obama’s religion, Obama’s choice of pastor, Obama’s friends, prayer in schools, prayers in Congress, memorial crosses on public lands, and, of course, the so-called “truth” about 9/11. (This is an abbreviated list, of course.)

Life’s too short, and libs just act too crazy about this stuff. Instead, I prefer to focus on the most important tenant of constitutional conservatism: reducing the size, power and cost of a centralized federal government, while returning power, money and liberty to the states and We, the People.

That being said, before Dr. Rossiter’s press release hit the AP, I suspected liberalism might be a disease, like insanity. Why else would so many libs act so ka-ray-zee? (Not all, my lovely lib family and friends, not all!)

For example, on the Nevada Politics Facebook page this week, I mentioned I lean to the right, and BAM! I was immediately (and repeatedly) accused of being: stupid, a Nazi, a no-nothing (as in, I know nothing), a “BIRFER,” a friend of the uber-wealthy, a sheep for corporate tools, an advocate of child labor and 60-hour work weeks, a moron, a freaky teabagger, an idiot, a pro-nuke bagger and finally, “an extremist tea bagger writing revisionist history and scapegoting regular working people.”

Nothing I wrote in any previous discussion, nor anywhere on the net, could lead a sane person to deduce and declare those things about me. They were pure fiction, fantasy and fallacy, violently spewed forth like projectile vomit by several liberals at Nevada Politics, including one decidedly vile, ungentlemanly-man, whose parents aptly named him “Dick.”

I’m sure my final attempt at humor (and logic) perturbed him. “If conservatives are ‘Teabaggers,’ then liberals are our ‘Teabaggees’… which means we’ve got you by the balls, Dick.”

Thank you, Dr. Rossiter, for positing that liberalism is a mental disorder. I couldn’t agree more.

Left wing loons blame Japan’s earthquake on global warming…

Posted by iusbvision on March 20, 2011

You knew it was just a matter of time.

This is the nature of politics and far left academia today; “You’ve got the answer now get me there.”
