MOMCOM and The Sins of Libya - 3

"Thanks for all that freedom Obomber"
The faux snooze went all glittery and gold when whatever IS IS went nutso on some 25 Christians at the beach recently.

As a result, people also lost their heads at the keyboard guillotine of McTell News.

It was a regular psychotic reaction.

But, not as many noticed when the sovereign nation of Libya was beheaded as millions lost the lives they had been living there, even though it was an example of what Arnold J. Toynbee called the murder of a society:
"In other words, a society does not ever die 'from natural causes', but always dies from suicide or murder --- and nearly always from the former, as this chapter has shown."
(Choose Your Trances Carefully - 3). Not many at McTell News have reported that:
Libya provides a complete education to all students free of cost to them, from the kindergarten level up through the university level.

At least it did before it was invaded.

Libyans can purchase gasoline for their automobiles at a cost of 14 cents a litre.

At least they could before their nation was invaded.

Libya provides complete health care coverage to all of its citizens free of cost to them whatever their age.

At least it did before it was invaded.

Libya provides good labor laws "for workers’ compensation, pension rights, minimum rest periods, and maximum working hours."

At least it did before it was invaded.

["Yo Fed X me some bushie freedom Yo"]
That means women in that Islamic nation get a complete education for free, are cared for at no cost when their health is an issue, and can work in humane conditions, and wonder of wonders, women can drive automobiles in Libya.

At least it was that way before Libya was invaded.

Libya was categorized by the United Nations as a "High human development" country.

In that U.N. ranking, Libya even ranked above Saudi Arabia, for example (Saudi Arabian women cannot drive automobiles, or vote).

At least it was that way before Libya was invaded.

Libya provided $50,000 to newlyweds, and zero interest home loans to the citizens of that nation.

At least it did before it was invaded.
(MOMCOM And The Sins of Libya). What the war whores do remember in their play-pretend newspapers and plastic punditry is likely to be:
In the immediate wake of the military victory, U.S. officials were triumphant.
Writing in these pages in 2012, Ivo Daalder, then the U.S. permanent representative to NATO, and James Stavridis, then supreme allied commander of Europe, declared, “NATO’s operation in Libya has rightly been hailed as a model intervention.” In the Rose Garden after Qaddafi’s death, Obama himself crowed, “Without putting a single U.S. service member on the ground, we achieved our objectives.”
(Foreign Affairs). Now, the bands of believers are asking what "the meaning of IS IS" again, but in a more news-sexy context:
Marched on to a Libyan beach in now gruesomely familiar orange jumpsuits, the last moments of 21 Coptic Christians carried the vicious jolt of previous Isis
"A head in every pot, a rubble mobile in every garage"
snuff videos, but with an added charge of fear.

The setting, in Libya, suggested that the group was spreading further and faster than even their dramatic early advances seem possible, and it came after vows of allegiance to Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi by militants from Afghanistan to Yemen ... In Libya, where Isis now controls three towns, its roots are less clear, with some fighters signing up from a homegrown militia based in Benghazi city, and others returning from Syria. The group has advanced quickly though across a country rocked by civil war, highlighting its progress with regular displays of extreme violence.
(Guardian). Yep, Libya was freed up for some real hoots and hollers of freedom fries, while being burned at the proverbial stake:
Sekou Balde is living testimony to the increasing chaos and brutality that is sweeping Libya, as fears grow that the Islamic State terrorist group is seeking
Never let our oil get under your lands
to establish a caliphate on the shores of the Mediterranean.

Lifting up his sweatshirt, he reveals the six stab wounds he received when he was attacked by a gang of four Libyan soldiers who demanded money after they raided the house near Tripoli where he was living rough with other African immigrants.

"They said 'where is your money?'. I said that I didn't have any. Then they attacked me. It was four of them against me. They came to where we were living at one in the morning. My brother was shot dead in front of me – boom, boom – as well as two of my friends," he said.
(Migrants Tell of Deepening Chaos in Libya). The McTell News is reporting that every nation in the mid-east is on edge with excitement, and quite anxious to find out who will be so blessed to next be freed.
