Obama's Pentagon are firing missles at Libyan forces. The Nobel peace prize winner has now expanded US military action more than at anytime in US history. The democrat ministry of truth is spinning the expanded wars as humanitarian, to give the liberal left the cover it needs to present to its idealog base that
war really is peace.
pray for the Libyan people.
Where to start...
I'm not sure what you mean by "liberal left." At least in the states, liberal and neoliberal positions are generally associated with the political right: see the Chicago School economic & foreign polices of the Bush years. "liberal left" is a boring ad hominem used to dismiss arguments before hearing them out.
I'm not convinced the terms "humanitarian war" are necessarily in conflict, as you suggest in your hyperbolic invocation of Orwell (with the implication that small-d democratic regimes practice such stuff exclusively... Again, does one need to be reminded of the Mission Accomplished rhetoric of the Bush years?) In this specific instance, the Libyan opposition has publicly requested military aid against direct assault by the Ghaddafi-led forces, in no small part mercenary forces. Ghaddafi is no Allende, Obama is no Nixon: this isn't a trumped-up war for economic gain and in favor of an Orwellian regime in the first instance, as was the 11 Sept. 1973 coup that brought a good conservative government to Chile on terms suitable to economic interests in the States and Europe.
Time will tell if this was a wise decision and wikileaks will eventually fill us in on the backstory, regardless of what we might want to speculate.
I agree, we should be praying for the Libyan people.
