al Qaeda Enters Obama’s Vacuum

Posted March 27th, 2011 by Iron Mike

Obama dithered;
al Qaeda didn’t!

Did the Obama Cartel think the world would just sit back and wait on their decisions? Maybe…

Maybe being so absolutely arrogant and full of themselves the Cartel thought nothing would happen in the region until or unless they acted.  But al Qaeda people got into Libya early.

They had a couple of missions.  First they wanted to make new friends among the rebels – find promising youth for future missions. They probably brought a few recruits of their own to give them a little combat experience. There’s nothing like a live-fire situation to test and season young wannabes.

And they wanted to take advantage of the “fog of war” – to grab anything of future value – like Libya’s stock of Soviet SA-7 heat-seeking anti-aircraft missiles.

Even the original 40-year old versions of this weapon are still dangerous.

The back story is the the US invented the Redeye missile in the 1960s. In 1967 a homosexual supply sergeant in the Berlin Brigade was set up with an East German lover. In the spy business these people are called ‘Swallows’.  Promised a life of luxury in Russia, he walked a brand-new Redeye through the Brandenburg Gate.

Just five years later the Russian copies – the SA-7 – appeared in Vietnam, and instantly changed our concepts of airmobile warfare and close air support.  Anybody flying under 5,000 feet would likely draw one of these into their tailpipe.  They are incredibly fast; even as you see the streak of white smoke go by an aircraft is already in a fireball.

Now – thanks to Obama’s delaying tactics, a number of Gaddafi’s SA-7s have been scooped up by al Qaeda people in eastern Libya.

Now not only are our military aircraft patrolling the No Fly Zone in danger, – so are ALL aircraft in North Africa and the Middle East. Any military or civilian – or head-of-state aircraft landing or taking off is in very serious danger.

6 April 1994 shoot-down that started Rwanda genocide

For you with a short memory, On 6 April 1994 the aircraft carrying Juvénal Habyarimana – President of Rwanda and Cyprien Ntaryamira – President of Burundi was mysteriously shot down while landing at Kigali, Rwanda. The resulting anger and suspicion triggered the genocide in Rwanda – with over 800,000 Hutu and Tutsi tribesmen killed – most hacked to death.

Do ANY of you reading this believe that the SA-7s in al Qaeda’s hands won’t be used?  Thanks a friggin lot Obama!

Do you think Obama will mention any of this when he gives us his self-congratulatory address Monday night?
