Protest movement pleads for intervention as Gaddafi’s forces step up counter-attack.
One can understand an Obama refusing to help a grassroots movement because he is a socialist and wants State control of everything, along with massive debt and a subjugated people feeding off the State teat – that’s a given.
What many can’t understand though is why Cameron, a supposed conservative, dedicated to people’s freedom, the democratic process etc., having said he was going to step in to help, actually sits back and does nothing but spout the right noises to his domestic market about it.
The answer, as so many freedom loving pundits have pointed out, is that no way will the global elite step in to help a grassroots movement. It’s giving aid to the enemy, isn’t it? The enemy being the people of course. The reason Gaddafi is acting with such impunity is that the message has got through that he won’t be opposed.
