Last night I was homeward bound, driving on an Interstate Highway, when a radio news broadcast caught my ear. The confusion, disarray and aimlessness of the new non-war front in Libya (the one that is now labeled Kinetic Military Action) has thankfully come to an end – and NATO will direct the non-war Kinetic Military Actions that involve dropping non-war high explosives – thereby killing Moammar Ghadafi’s troops and any unfortunate civilians who happen to be caught in the non-war crossfire.
But make no mistake here – this is not a war. The Obama administration does not engage in war or regime change.
The single hang-up to finally figuring out who or what would take the helm, direct the non-war bombardment and probable non-war ground-troop invasion to follow was a condition that was laid out by the Turkish government – which has now been met. That little tidbit piqued my interest. Here’s a very interesting story from World Bulletin (via Winds of Jihad) that explains what the big Turkish NATO dust-up was about. And guess what – it’s about Denmark’s Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen dis-respecting Islam:
“Suat Kiniklioglu, deputy chairman of the ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party for foreign relations, said, “it is unacceptable that a person who loutishly disrespect our faith and holy values in the past, will head the Alliance.”
In an interview with the A.A, Kiniklioglu said that election of Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen of Denmark as the new secretary-general of NATO could cause some difficulties for the Alliance because of the Islam world’s perception of him.”…”
Loutish disrespect for Islam, which codifies and sanctions the repression of women, beheadings, floggings, amputations, stoning accused female adulterers to death, slicing off women’s clitorises, and making war against non-believers. The nerve of that guy – disrespecting Islam. But, let’s go on, shall we?
“…”The Danish prime minister is a troublesome person for Turkey. There are three reasons of this: First of all, he was captured by cameras as saying after the EU Summit in 2003 that Turkey would never become a full member of the EU; then, he assumed an irresponsible and unsentimental attitude during the cartoon crisis, and lastly, he failed to prevent broadcast of Roj TV from Denmark,” he said.
The cartoon crisis erupted in 2006 after a Danish newspaper cartoon depicted the Prophet Mohammad (PBHU)in a way regarded as a serious disrespect by Muslims…”
Crisis, indeed. And there were riots all round the world. People were killed over those cartoons. But we must respect Islam and never say it’s not a religion of peace – or they’ll kill us.
