Should we work for the government can we fight a war kill foreign leaders declare victory and then just leave.
Tonight traveling the world looking for monsters to slay.
In the past 72 hours three events occurred around the globe that have great implications for American freedom.
On Thursday of last week colonel Muammar Qaddafi -- recognized and acknowledged head of the government of Libya.
Was shot -- the head of a public street corner -- young Libyan woman wearing -- New York Yankees cap and in the presence of about 25 witnesses.
None of whom have stated that cannot be was armed.
President Obama praised of the killing.
By human rights groups condemned.
The rebels have chased him from office have proclaimed themselves to be legitimate Libyan government.
While the United Nations and NATO were charged with defending human rights and -- -- treaty are obliged to prevent such assassinations or investigate -- -- -- occurred.
We'll look the other way.
As recently as 2006.
Then president George W.
And then British prime minister Tony Blair proclaimed colonel -- a partner in the war on terror.
Yeah -- recently -- 2009.
Senator John McCain personally met with colonel Qaddafi and personally promised to provide him with military weapons.
On Friday of last week President Obama announced that all American military personnel in Iraq.
Except for about 100 provide security for our Vatican's -- embassy in Baghdad we'll all be home before Christmas.
You remember what we have had any personnel there well first it was to seek out and destroy weapons of mass destruction but none were found.
Then we got involved in a civil -- and took sides with a group that had been excluded from the government.
Then we were told that our purpose was regime change because Saddam Hussein was a bad guy whether He had WMD's are not.
Then we captured Saddam and it was tried in a kangaroo court and executed.
We lost 4500 young soldiers 32000.
More were injured 650000.
Iraqis were killed.
And over two million Iraqis fled their country.
This along with our adventurism in Afghanistan -- the American taxpayers.
About one trillion dollars.
The stated purpose for our departure is the decision of the popularly elected Iraqi Government to decline to afford immunity to American personnel.
Stated differently the Iraqi Government which we install.
Decided that after all these years there Americans in Iraq needed to Obey the same laws as Iraqis do.
That was too much for us and so we will leave.
And on Saturday of this last week Afghan president -- car.
-- and frequent guest.
Of the in the united states of president George W.
Bush who once addressed a joint session of congress and whose country the United States took back from the Taliban.
Announced that should the United States engage in a military conflict with Pakistan.
His government will side with the Pakistan -- This would mean that over a 100000.
US troops would be kicked out of Afghanistan we would lose all our military hardware or.
We would need to fight against the forces of the country we have supposedly liberated and whose military we have trained.
And which we have occupied for ten years.
Indeed this war in Afghanistan has been the longest in American history.
It has cost us 2700.
Young lives 3400.
Produce three and a half million refugees.
And because the government doesn't break down these numbers -- -- to see.
It consumed parts of the trillion dollars we have spent in fighting these two useless wars in the Middle East.
Your government your C has few lasting friendships but many not many lasting interests.
After the deaths of 7000 young Americans and injuries to another 40000.
After five million persons have fled their homelands after hundreds of billions of dollars in property damage.
We are still saddled with a trillion dollar cost because we borrowed the money to pay for these wars and we have yet to pay it back.
We are leaving Iraq and Afghanistan want to -- and Libya has already enacted show real law which means polygamy.
And the stoning of women who disobey their husbands.
-- -- -- You feel safer or for Europe because of all of this of course not.
We are all less -- because an entire generation of Middle Eastern young people has come of age resenting and heating the United States government.
And an entire generation of Americans has come of age saddled with an additional trillion dollars in government debt.
Because we were there because we bombed and killed and me and -- installed properly puppet regimes.
And so we will leave.
-- we learn the lessons of our own failures in Vietnam.
Now that we learn the lessons of the Russians failures and Afghanistan.
Is it any wonder we have an economy that is collapsing here at home and the most unsettled time in America in the last eighty years now.
From New York defending.
