Before I get started I want to point out that this Column is not about Austria as a Country or the Austrian People. Austria itself is a beautiful country. It has tremendous historical sites to see, and the Austrian Citizens are good, friendly, and amazing people.
What this column is all about is the hypocritical brainwashing European and Austrian Governments who, just like the Obama administration, does not give a darn about the wish and desires of their citizens, but stubbornly defend, promote and indoctrinate their socialist/Marxist/already dead multiculturalism/terrorist loving politics.
These are the facts of European Hypocrisy and their desperate attempt to downplay their own failure on the Arabian politics and their desperate attempt to cover their fawning-over of Dictators even against the wish and will of the United States.
When Listening to European News Networks over Satellite such as N-24, or Austrian ORF, it is unbelievable how desperately they live in denial of their own responsibilities.
Listening to those European politicians, these days they sure admit that they might have “misinterpreted” the one or the other situation “but not without pointing the finger at the United States on all their alleged failures” instead of accepting responsibility.
The finger pointing against the United States has already started in order to cover up that the United States did not have any economical businesses in those areas nor did we have strong diplomatic relations in that region.
The entire cover-up is of course properly transported through Government owned propaganda TV stations such as ORF as well as ultra liberal newspapers (real honest and independent Newspapers are anyway not to be found except the FAZ in Germany).
And now, especially the left wing radical Newspapers and magazines such as NEWS and Österreich under the left wing radical owner Wolfgang Fellner, don’t want to hear anything about that. Now that Media act puffed up how official Austria could have ever talked to those dictators.
This is hypocrisy all the way, knowing that Egypt was armed and equipped with American Military technology because they were the only Arab country holding a military alliance with the United States.
The rest of those radical Arab nations with ties to Terrorist Networks have been under a ban by the United States, which gave the irresponsible European Union an opportunity to sell their weapons to them. And now they try to cover that up by blaming the United States.
Let’s get a few facts straight:
1) Weapons in that area
The weapon ban against Libya was lifted by the United Nations in 2004 against the will of the United States by pressure from the European Union.
Latest news reports that European Union Companies sold alone in 2009 weapons and technology to Libya, Bahrain, Palestine, Lebanon, Tunisia, and other radical Islam countries in a net worth of at least $ 474 Million Dollars U.S. Spiegel online reports (1).
Helicopters from Italy, Fighter jets from France and Germany, Communications technology such as Internet and telephone kill switches from Germany, side arms, assault rifles and unmanned drones from Austria, Tanks from France and the UK, Crowd control weapons (used against demonstrations and to repress opposition) from the UK and Kalashnikovs from Russia just to name a few. Russia alone has an ongoing Arms deals with that region in an amount of 40 Billion Dollar, in Libya itself, 2 Billion Dollars AHN News.com (2) reports.
As a matter of fact the standard assault rifle of the Tunisian Military is the Steyr AUG 77, reported among the top ten Assault rifles, and also used by the Australian Army and many special Forces in the world made in Austria.
1) Social Acceptance of Gaddafi and his offspring
Less than a month ago they have cheered to Saiif al-Islam Gaddafi as a reformer, they have fawned over him whenever he was in Austria, his mother and sister have been well liked shopping customers in Vienna. Aisha Gaddafi was cheered in the Austrian left wing media as the “Claudia Schiffer of the middle east. Pointing out how beautiful and intelligent she was, showing strength against America when defending Saddam Hussein”.
Meanwhile, it was confirmed last week that while Gaddafi’s wife Saifya and his daughter Aisha were shopping in Vienna thousands of Libyan protesters were gunned down by Gaddafi.
Gaddafi’s son Saaif al-Islam Gaddafi studied in Vienna at the IMADEC University and in the UK, and was a well liked guest in Austrian Society, praised as a reformer. And though left wing liberals now mock against the diseased former leader of the freedom party Jörg Haider for his visits to Libya and his friendship to Saaif al-Islam Gaddafi, it was actually the former Chancellor of Austria Bruno Kreisky (3) that brought the known Terrorist back into the international community.
Saaif Gaddafi visited the Vienna Opera ball, an officiell Event hosted by the Austrian Federal Government, and holds extreme close ties to the SPOE and the Austrian Government as well as to the German Sister SPD.
Spiegel Magazine in Germany says in an article from 2004 on Gaddafi: “After a Libyan court sentenced 5 Bulgarian Nurses and a Palestinian Doctor to death in a case of contaminated Blood preservation’s Brussels pressures the from Terror pope to Lord of Peace transformed President to stop the execution of the Nurses” (From Spiegel Magazine (4): Nachdem ein libysches Gericht in einem Prozess um verseuchte Blutkonserven fünf bulgarische Krankenschwestern und einen palästinensischen Arzt zum Tode verurteilt hat, setzt Brüssel den zum Friedensfürsten gewendeten Terrorpaten unter Druck, eine Vollstreckung des Urteils zu verhindern.)
1) Political acceptance
It was Bruno Kreisky (1911 to 1990), chancellor of Austria from 1970 to 1983 that first made Muammar al-Gaddafi eligible in the international community and held close relations with him. Gaddafi himself calls him “My good friend Bruno”. The very same Bruno Kreisky that also made Yasser Arafat, leader of the Terror organization PLO, eligible and organized him to speak in front of the United Nations.
And let’s not forget Libya’s seat on the United Nations Humans rights council. Because of the acceptance of Terrorist Countries in that council, the United States boycotted them during the Bush administration, but rejoined them with Barrack Obama Fox News reports (5).
So why else do you think that Europe managed to give the slave to the UN and European Socialist/Marxist Puppet Obama the Nobel Peace Prize?
Libya got that seat, against the will of the United States, by a simple blackmail trade designed by the European Union… In order to get weapons and arms deals as well as oil and gas drilling rights for European Companies, especially Austria who was the one supporting Libya.
1) Business connections
It is also confirmed since 2011/03/01 that the Gaddafi Clan has 1.25 Billion U.S. dollars parked in cash in Austrian banks. It is also confirmed that the “Libyan Investment Authority” holds several shareholdings of Austrian Companies such as Wienerberger bricks and more.
The Libyan Central bank holds 5 % shares on the UNICREDIT Bank group, one of the largest banks in Europe with headquarters in Italy and banks throughout Europe, including the largest bank in Austria called “Bank Austria” (another socialist affiliated bank).
The largest Oil drilling company in Libya is OMV. OMV is a former government owned oil and Gas Company partially privatized in the late 90’s keeping the vast majority (25% + 1 share) in the hands of the Austrian Government. OMV is also known as being extremely affiliated with SPOE, the socialist Party of Austria. Two of the past three chancellors from the SPOE started their careers in the OMV.
Austria retains 25% of its Oil and Gas from Libya, and more than 50% of the remaining 75% is coming from Russia.
Austria was never shy to decry human’s rights violations when it came to protesting against the treatment of those “poor misunderstood” Terrorists at Gitmo. In Libya on the other hand Austria kept silent in order not to endanger its economical interests… The Gaddafi’s were well liked business partners.
So it is not a miracle that the current SPOE leadership around SPOE chancellor Faymann took their sweet time to freeze Gaddafi’s accounts and business connections calling on the European Union for guidance.
Or was it the hope of the European Union, as usual, that they would find a consensus on how to deal with Libya and still keep Austria’s business interests? Maybe the EU was hoping to reach some sort of agreement where Austria could “officially” avoid having to freeze the money and properties of the Gaddafi’s and then somehow return it to them when the dust settled.
No matter who will follow Gaddafi or any of the fallen dictators, it will be infiltrated by radical America hating Muslim groups. History has shown us that the naive hope things will turn to the better and democracy will be established is a misjudgment.
The countries are poor and the people are now expecting manna to fall from heaven and that the western world will flood them with money, but as soon as that does not happen radical Muslim Terror organizations like Al Qaeda and their pied-piper’s are going to have a feast.
We are talking about the European Union members here. Al Qaeda in Maghreb makes a living of kidnapping European Tourists and dragging them through the uncontrolled desert between Tunisia and Libya. From the ransom money they finance their Terror attacks on America.
The European Union knows about that and though, officially not negotiating with Terrorists, they had no shame in using Saaif al-Islam Gaddafi’s alleged charity foundation and Saaif himself to negotiate and pay the ransom. The fact is that the European Union finances Terrorism through the backdoor, which they apparently consider the lesser evil.
And the European Union has now the impertinence to put the blame of the northern Africa situation on us the United States. A situation they caused, it was the European opportunists who accepted and snuggled the past centuries with those Terrorists and now when it comes to taking responsibility for their idiotic politics they want to point the finger at us.
But that is normal for them: They want us THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA to solve their problems and once we solve them we should get the hell out of Dodge and leave those Europeans the field of business.
Sure, with Obama that might work, but not with the rest of America. And Obama with the help of God Almighty will soon be history and a one-term president.
Did Obama screw the situation: Definitely.
When I asked on Facebook: Is Obama 1) way over his head on that situation, or b) incompetent or c) too dumb to handle it, well he is none of that.
He knows what he is doing. He is playing that regions economy right into the hands of the European Union and the radical Muslim Terrorists (see my previous column) (7).

February 11, 2011; approximately 11 am EST President Mubarak fled from Cairo in a helicopter to Sham El-Sheik going in exile and his Vice-president Suleiman declared on Egyptian TV the resignation of President Mubarak and the power of Egypt given to the Military Council taking over official functions.
The world, and especially liberal American Mainstream media and European News and governments cheer in support of the victory of the “peaceful protesters”.
One quote comes to my mind seeing and hearing this and that is:
Lord forgive them for they know not what they do
Incompetence is a wonderful thing – for those who don’t have any responsibilities and whose actions really don’t make a difference.
But there are people out there like Business people, Politicians, and yes even Anchors of News media who can influence millions of people by the way they deliver news, those people have a huge responsibility. Every decision they make, every public appearance and public statement they make, changes not only the lives of those directly involved but also in a long string of people connected to them.
Every responsible business man when facing situations that he knows will affect the entire landscape of his business and will affect thousands of people does not just make simple bold statements. He uses foresight, plans ahead, and evaluates situations and outcomes and effects on others.
And when this person is a President of a country this person needs to understand that every action he takes has a magnitude of effect not only for his own country and their military, economical and political situation, but also effects several entire countries and in Obama’s case even several continents.
It is extremely dangerous not only for a country or region, no in the case of Egypt, for not less than 4 Continents, when Obama keeps following his political and ideological “Pro-Islam” agenda. And his incompetency and lack of foresight and capability to look beyond the rim seeing the possible danger in the future will be affecting millions of people.
On “American Thinker” Ed Lasky states in his column “Obama’s role in empowering the Muslim Brotherhood” that Obama is far away from being out in the front of the crisis but his actions badly damage American interests – perhaps irretrievably. And he is 100% right there.
When I warned on 2011/01/21 in my column “Tunisia – the ignored danger to America” about the wide spread possibility to a conflagration to that area and sent this to almost every major Newspaper, Conservative online media and others at best ignored me. But now the situation proves I was right.
Let’s take another closer look at the map one more time:
Or more up-close:
Basically what you see there is an entire region filled with Al-Qaida supported radical, unstable countries surrounding Israel and with a direct access to Europe.
Right after Tunisia (who is less than 100 miles away from Italy and has a daily ferry boat traveling across the Mediterranean Sea) and Egypt, the countries Algeria, Yemen and last week also Syria is where the first turmoil’s and protests started. Jordan’s king Abdullah had to release his entire government and allow some Palestinian representatives (Palestinian Emigrants make 70% of the Jordan population) in the government.
Some blue-eyed and ignorant people might say that this was only a short flare-up of protests and does not really mean a thing. I say otherwise.
I say there is method behind it and the method is simple: if all 9 countries mentioned in my column start revolting at the same time the world would immediately be alarmed. European Governments and American Government under Obama will have a hard time explaining the continued support of the Muslim groups in that region.
And their constant preaching of diversity and multiculturalism, knowing that the very same is dead, will be exposed as what it is – a failure. David Cameron, the British Prime minister was the first official recognizing publicly in the Wall Street Journal what WE THE PEOPLE already knew all along.
And the Muslim brotherhood will lose the support of those Governments who stubbornly defend them as non-radicals.
It is not the one with the bomb around the waste I am scared of, it is the one in the background, the one I don’t see, the organizer and manager, the man with the laptop and college education I am scared of.
Al-Qaida Terrorists are uneducated, poor, and dumb people, but never underestimate the leadership of these terrorist groups. Nevertheless, we and the Europeans have educated most of them, meaning they, before becoming Terrorists, visited American and European Universities.
Again, the fact that miraculously the turmoil in those other countries has stopped is not because the local dictators have such power.
The real reason is that Al-Qaida knows that the only way to gain absolute power, assure the support of the European Governments and blindfolding the Liberal biased media is by taking one country at a time and selling these revolutions as revolutions of the intellectual, poor, and oppressed youth.
This way they can play the victim card, call on the sympathy of the European and American public because all they want is a better life and stay under the radar of the Intelligence community.
Conservative opposition as well as warning voices is being silenced by the liberal governments and their will faring liberal biased media.
One country at a time will fall into the hands of Al-Qaida. Not to forget the resources that falls into their hands too.
First was Tunisia and now is Egypt.
European news reports today, that since Mubarak refuses to stand down and has only made a shady offer the Army will push the government out and take control over the country until the elections in the fall.
Throughout the past 18 days, the time since the Egypt revolt began, the European news media has not gotten tired of making statements that the Muslim brotherhood is not an immediate threat. Because they were not the ones that actually started the Revolution, but instead they have played a secondary role in it.
Then again – it is not the one that starts the revolution I am scared of, because revolutions are usually started out of good intensions. I am scared of the one that takes advantage of it.
And the Muslim Brotherhood is a factor to be considered. At the last election in Egypt they had 25% of the voter’s voices. According to analyst Tammy Bruce, the second in command of the Muslim brotherhood is a 100% Al-Qaida operative.
Experience tells us that radical groups know how to push or manipulate elections. And also the latest experiences show and prove that the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has no problems whatsoever in using Terror as a weapon of intimidation against Christians or liberating forces.
The conclusion is that once the Military gives free elections, radical groups of the Muslim brotherhood will have, and gain the absolute power in Egypt using terror to prevent the opposition to going to the polls.
This is the very same Muslim Brotherhood Obama so secretly enforces by supporting CAIR who on the other side publically lobby against Mubarak WND reports.
Now I am not a fan of Mubarak, but one thing is for sure, he has a lot more insight with regards to the situation than Obama. I am convinced he knows that once he steps down without leaving behind a stable and western oriented Government, assuring that the Muslim Brotherhood does not gain too much power, the entire region is a tinderbox that will explode and fall into radical muslimization.
Let’s clarify that: There was a reason behind Mubarak prohibiting the Muslim Brotherhood from being a party and participating in government.
He also knows that once that fire of revolution spreads that Israel will fall into destruction because they are surrounded by enemies bound to annihilate them without any protection whatsoever. Until now they at least had the United States and the powerful Egyptian Army supplied with American weapons that protected them.
Leaving me with only three possibilities:
a) Obama is really that dumb and incompetent and he does not see the danger that can come from this situation
I refuse to believe that. Secretary Clinton is, other than Obama, not a rooky. She spent 8 years on the side of her Husband former President Bill Clinton involved more or less directly in international politics and affairs. Assuming that she does not see the danger is not to be believed.
Mubarak needs to go, that is a fact. But not as Obama wants it right now. If the United States is really interested in preserving its position in that region, Clinton needs to work on a Government after Mubarak, assuring that American interests are preserved. But obviously Obama has no intention in doing so. The fact of the matter is his bold demands of Mubarak leaving right now shows he wants to leave an unstable country behind.
But that leaves me with only two other options and those are:
b) This is by design on Obama’s part and he is willing, and working hard to support the destabilization of the free world as we know it, the support of radical Islam, and the destruction of Israel.
Because one thing is for sure, once that tinderbox explodes, Israel is doomed and they cannot count on Obama or the United Nations.
And that is, in my opinion, Treason at its purest and most dangerous form; jeopardizing the entire American Continent, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East – 4 Continents presented to the radical Muslims on a silver platter. And the third option no less dangerous:
c) Hillary Clintons lets Obama run into the wall on purpose in order to position herself as the next Presidential candidate in 2012.
All she needs to do is put herself in the position of a subordinate and let Obama have his will and when election time comes she can use his failure to strengthen American Interests in the Middle East and weaken our ally Israel against Obama. Pounding on the endangering of Israel will assure her the support of the Jewish community.
Hillary Clinton is a cold blooded politician who uses everything necessary to get what she wants, even if that costs innocent lives in a foreign country. If only one of those three options is the case than….
May God have mercy on us, Bless us, and definitely
MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA
What really puzzled me the past few days was that not one of the major Media’s or Columnists seems to pay attention to the northern African Country of Tunisia.
Tunisia was past decades pretty much the Cancun for the Europeans, focusing on Tourists, primarily from Europe.
Predominantly a Muslim Country, Tunisia was very progressive and did not forcefully insist on radical Muslim rules such as Sharia Law. As a matter of fact Tunisia allowed the building of Hotel resorts, organized Hog and other Jungle Animal Hunting tours and used its breath taking access to the Mediterranean See to offer its shore for Tourism. True to the motto: “1001 night meets western civilization”.
But there has also always been a certain danger in this self declared Wonderland. If Tourists went too far into the southern part of the country, away from the primary Tourist sections, they exposed themselves to Kidnapping by the African Branch of Taliban and Al Qaida. And they were brutally active.
The system was simple: Stay away from Americans and target primarily Europeans. Since the majority of the Tourists are Europeans those Terrorists could be sure that the countries paid the ransom and so they financed their Terror attacks all over the world.
Oh and if you think they are not a threat just think of the past few caught Terrorists in American such as the “Underwear Christmas Bomber” – they all came from Africa.
The landscape as well as the lack of border patrols between the northern African Countries and as well as the fact that the majority of the local Law enforcement (if that’s what you want to call them) is highly corrupt and cooperates with the terrorists makes it easy for those to kidnap and disappear in the deserts between, the countries.
In most cases of kidnapping Muammar Al Gaddafi’s son Islam al Gaddafi, educated in Austria/Europe and connected with excellent ties to European Governments, acts as the local off-the- record negotiator and official point of contact to the “extremists” to buy kidnapped people free.
But the peace is over. This La-La-Fantasy of east meets west and we all go along show has come to an end.
On January 15th of 2011 the people in Tunisia revolted against the current Government and forced the President and his wife to flee for asylum to Saudi Arabia.
While the government and especially the, since 23 years reigning President Zine El Abidene Ben Ali (74) and his wife Leila Ben Ali, got richer and richer on the tremendous income from the Tourists the people of the country hardly ever got anything from the riches.
As a matter of fact the common populace was starving and lived in poverty with rising prices for food and gas and decreasing income.
Now there is a revolution in Tunis. Rumors have it that Leila Ben Ali and her Husband fled the country with 1.5 tons of Gold. The latest news was that the, on January 18th 2011 installed interims government where finally the previous forbidden opposition became three seats lasted exactly 2 hours when those three resigned.
But what does that has to do with us in the United States?
The most easy-to-be-influenced people as recruit for radical Muslims terrorist organizations are young people with low education, poor, unemployed and frustrated with the government and disappointed with the loss of “Muslim Moral Values”.
The promises of a better afterlife if they sacrifice their life in suicide Missions against the preferred Enemy Israel and America and the outlook that their family’s are forever financially supported by terrorist leaders makes the decision to join Al Qaida or the Taliban easy for them.
All it takes for the pied piper of Muslim recruiters is to promise a better future and put the blame first on the Europeans calling them Puppets of the Imperialistic Americans and call for the their destruction.
Most people when thinking of Africa see poor black African People with colorful cloth, wonderful Jungles and an amazing fauna, living mostly of charity from the West, and that since over 60 years.
But that is central Africa. Northern Africa is mostly Arabic descent.
And in the entire northern African region you have plenty of all of the necessary ingredients for future terrorists. You have Muslims, you have poverty and you have frustration and unemployment and the enemy right in plain few to blame.
Daniel Pipes of Washington Times calls it “Turmoil in Tunisia – Political upheaval could trigger revolution in other Islamic Countries” (Source – Washington Times: http://is.gd/wt5JUk).
Washington Times by the way is the only newspaper that at least mentions that threat.
While the United States is focusing on the Middle Eastern Countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and others to fight the war on Terror, this sleeping Lion is just about to arise and Terrors specialists in Europe warn for the longest time that the primary Terror threat has become Northern Africa.
Here is a map of that region. I added some numbers on the Countries who are lead by dictators and where the next Islamic revolution is to be expected. Below the picture I number down the countries and explain to you why.
1 – Tunisia: In December of 2010 a young unemployed man committed suicide through “self-immolation (by burning)” because of desperation. This self-immolation ignited outright wave of protest and lead finally in the current revolution and to the fall of President Zine el Abidene Ali.
2 – Algeria: The authoritarian President Bouteflika reigns since 1999. 2008 he pushed for a “reform” of the Constitution assuring himself life-long presidency. Violent demonstrations of the youth are continuous. The last Civil War with more than 150,000 dead is not long ago. Islamists are extreme radical and military rules with the most brutal methods.
Here as well people have committed Suicide through “self-immolation”.
3 – Mauretania: an Islamic Republic on the northwest shores of Africa right on the Atlantic with direct borders to Algeria, Mali, Senegal, and Morocco and sizes ¾ of Texas. Mauretania is officially a Presidential republic but since a Military coup in 2008 Mauretania is a military Dictatorship. The current President is “General Mohammed Ould Abdel Aziz”. He was from 2008 to 2009 the Chairman of the High state Council (haut conseil d’etat) and won 2009 the Presidential Election. He has the military behind himself but the poverty and unemployment in this country is huge and Islamist infiltrating Mauretania sure becomes more radical on a daily base.
Just recent people have committed suicide in Mauretania through so called “self-immolation (by burning)” as protest against the government. This by the way becomes common practice in this region.
His successor will be his son Islam al Gaddafi who has been educated in Western Europe such as Switzerland and Austria.
With his Oil and Gas and the fact that Libyans are usually not really war-loving people he holds himself pretty good in power. Islam al Gaddafi runs a charity foundation to distribute wealth to the people. Some say that is a better money laundry for Terrorists because as I mentioned before through this charity he also passes on ransom money to the very same.
The real problem is the size of the country and the corrupt not-existing Border patrols to the desert in the south and south-west. This is Al Qaida country and the African Arm of them moves there pretty much unperceived and unmolested.
5 – Egypt: is the only previous member of the Arab alliance who first attacked Israel in 1967 (six-day-War) and later with Syria in the Yom Kippur attack in 1973 that turned from a member of the Soviet Union Alliance to alliance with the United States of America. Egypt is also the only previous member of the same Arab Alliance that made a peace treaty with Israel and accepted the same according to the law of nations.
Performing a constant balancing act between an open country using its historical sites and amazing history as tourist attractions and the more and more influential majority Muslim population President Mubarak’s position is rather shaky. The question about his successor is imminent and should he push his son through is the military his biggest opponent. Also radical Muslim groups attack more and more Tourists which makes this region easily combustible.
Opposition is oppressed, demonstrations are prohibited but the press is freer than in Tunisia.
Egypt made the headlines lately through the suicide bombing of the Coptic Christians on New Year’s Eve 2010/2011, which show quit the explosive cultural and religious situation there.
On Monday the 10th of January 2011 and man tried to self-immolate himself because of protest against the Parliament in Cairo. According to media a taxi driver doused the fire and the man was brought to the hospital.
6 – Morocco: Social tenseness is eminent. But the country is tight monitored. King Mohammed VI is in power since 1999. He is political and spiritual leader of the Country. The major turmoil’s are in the West Sahara. The problem is the liberalization of the country. This brings major friction with the radical Muslims in this area.
7 – Jordan: The current situation in Jordan is at best absurd. 70% of the population are immigrated Palestinians. King Abdullah II and his wife Rania Al-Yassin are pro western and highly respected. But his balancing act between liberalization and fulfilling the needs of the radical Muslim Palestinians in this country brings tension and he faces a strong opposition. Other than the rest of the Arab countries Jordan does not have any natural resources on commodities. Its economy is depending on foreign aid, mostly from the United States. His thrown could be in jeopardy.
8 – Syria: Bashar al-Assad (45) did never want to go into politics. He wanted to become an Eye doctor and studies in Damascus and London. He speaks English and French. The son of Hafez al-Assad (President of Syria from 1970 – 2000) inherited the presidency.
It is a so called hereditary monarchy. Since 1963 the Baath Party is the strongest single force in this country. Attempts to reform the country have been stopped immediately. The party and the Military were worried to lose its influence. Opposition is oppressed and economy is central organized, media tight under control.
Poverty, corruption and unemployment are eminent. The government reacted to the latest turmoil’s with more social benefits. Syria is pretty calm at the moment; his agreement with the UN to allow foreign forces to cross their territory for liberating Kuwait was not really appreciated in the Arab World. Syria also wants to move forward on a peace negotiation with Israel which is not well liked in the Arab world as well. Right now Syria is isolated and depends on his bank system being the banker for Saudi Arabia and Iran. Radical Muslim forces are not happy with the liberal leadership of President Assad.
9 – Yemen: Al Qaida terrorists, Shiite Rebels, and separatists. President Saleh, in power since 1978, has a lot of pressure.
None of the above named governments are strong established and at best shaky. Should those countries fall into Islamic revolutions is this a disaster for the entire world. Combining this with the already radical Muslim countries in Central Africa such as Somalia and others and we will have a problem on our hand we cannot control.
AGAIN THE CHRISTMAS BOMBER/UNDERWEAR BOMBER WAS FROM THIS REGION – and the U.S. Government back than told us that this was a single incident and there is no imminent danger going out from Africa.
Radical Muslims, Al Qaida, and other terrorist groupings will control and regulate an inexhaustible amount of Gold, Oil and Diamonds the preferred currency of illegal weapons trafficker; I would say this makes Al Qaida the richest Terrorist organization on the planet.
Not to forget that they have a multi-million people recruiting pool of poor undereducated, and angry young man with a major hatred for the rich and prosperous United States and the European Union.
Now please tell me again why the White House, National Security council, mainstream Media, yet even the most respected Columnists like Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Rush Limbough and all the others ignore this present and scary danger?
WHERE IS THE OUTCRY AND THE DEMAND TO GIVE US ANY INPUT AS OFF HOW OBAMA THINKS TO HANDLE THIS PROBLEM
This is not an African Problem, maybe at the moment but it WILL BE A PROBLEM FOR THE UNITED STATES AND THE ENTIRE WORLD.
GOD BLESS AMERICA
