Obama Follows Palin’s Lead On Libya

Lest we forget, Saracuda first proposed a pro no-fly zone strategy in her Feb 22 FB oped, making her the first major political figure to discuss the option. And she continued to push the idea in subsequent public appearances.

On March 11, 2011, Wesley Clark, former NATO chief, opined in The Washington Post that Libya doesn’t meet the test for U.S. military action, which formally began the discussion in the media.

Bernie Quigley writes in The Hill:

What I thought was odd about this discussion was that it appeared to begin in the mainstream press only with Clark’s thoughtful opposition while one major political figure likely to enter the presidential race of 2012 had already discussed a no-fly zone on Judge Andrew Napolitano’s show: Sarah Palin.

There was no lengthy discussion or response elsewhere. To the MSM, she wasn’t there again today!

But this Wednesday, Benjamin Korn, director of Jewish Americans for Sarah Palin, had a post in the New York’s The Sun coining the phrase “Palin Doctrine.”

In an article titled “Palin Doctrine Emerges as Arab League Echoes Her Demarche on Libya,” he writes: “The call by the Arab League for Western military intervention in an Arab state — in this case asking that a UN ‘no-fly zone’ be imposed over Libya — is not only without precedent but it puts in formal terms what Gov. Palin stated three weeks ago should have been America’s response to the political and humanitarian crisis now unfolding there.”

Poll: New tone nominees For Week of March 13-19

On January 8, 2011, an unbalanced follower of the left-wing Zeitgeist movement, Jared Loughner, targeting  Democrat Rep Gabrielle Giffords at a Safeway in Tucson, sprayed bullets through the crowd of constituents, killing 6, and injuring 13. In the wake of that horror, the left blamed Sarah Palin, and the tea party, saying their uncivil rhetoric led to the senseless tragedy, and the MSM advanced the narrative in their reports. The National Institute For Civil Discourse was launched  by former Presidents Clinton and Bush I at the University of AZ in Tucson for  “debate, research, education and policy generation regarding civic engagement and civility in public discourse consistent with First Amendment principles”. As liberals used the unfortunate incident to call for a “new tone” in Washington, conservatives suspected that somehow the focus would only be on their tone, while libs would continue using uncivil and unhinged rhetoric unabated.

As the past few months have demonstrated, most notably the past few weeks, conservative suspicions have proven correct. Liberals are able to get away with all kinds of abusive language and behavior that conservatives would be raked over the coals for. The Left-Wing Institute For Civil Discourse was set up to track just how uncivil the left can be, and the double standard that exists in the reporting of left-wing incivility and violence.

The New Tone Award is reserved for liberal notables who spectacularly fail in the area of “civility in discourse”:

Chris Matthews for saying Huckabee Using ‘Racist’ Tactics

Susan Sarandon for calling Scott Walker an ‘idiot’

Lawrence O’Donnell for asking, ” What makes Bachmann’s rich, white voters so ignorant?

Alan Grayson for saying Gov. Rick Scott wants FL to become like Somalia

Kathy Griffin for depicting ‘Tea Partier’ as birther on ‘Glee’

Harry Reid for saying “Tea Party with their “extreme positions” is “short-lived”

Biden for praising Unions for keeping Republican “barbarians from the gate”…\

Under Threat Of Attack, Gaddafi Quickly Orders A Ceasefire UPDATE: Headfake?

Yet his forces bombarded a city, killing 25, earlier today:

Twenty-five people, including several children, were killed during heavy bombardments by forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi on the western city of Misrata on Friday, a doctor in the city told Reuters.

Gaddafi had promised to show “no mercy”, but after the U.N. Security Council authorized “all necessary measures”, and Britain said warplanes were being prepared for action, he retreats:

TRIPOLI/UNITED NATIONS, March 18 (Reuters) – Muammar

Gaddafi’s government said it was declaring a unilateral

ceasefire in its offensive to crush Libya’s revolt, as Western

warplanes prepared to attack his forces.

“We decided on an immediate ceasefire and on an immediate

stop to all military operations,” Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa

told reporters in Tripoli on Friday, after the U.N. Security

Council passed a resolution authorising military action.

He called for dialogue with all sides.

Knowing Gaddafi’s history, Western forces should have known to act earlier. Gaddafi is a bully who will bomb women and children, but the minute he’s threatened with retaliation from larger forces, he quickly retreats.

UPDATE:

The ceasefire announcement is being considered a “head-fake”, due to the  attack on Misrata:

France, a leading advocate of military action, said it was cautious about the ceasefire announcement and that the “threat on the ground has not changed”.

People in Misrata said the rebel-held western city was under

heavy bombardment by Gaddafi’s forces on Friday.

“They are bombing everything, houses, mosques and even

ambulances,” Gemal, a rebel spokesman, told Reuters by phone

from the last big rebel stronghold in the west.

Another rebel named Saadoun said: “We believe they want to

enter the city at any cost before the international community

starts implementing the U.N. resolution.

“We call on the international community to do something

before it’s too late. They must act now.”

A fighter named Mohammed said tanks were advancing on the

city centre. “All the people of Misrata are desperately trying

to defend the city,” he said.
