    Lindsey Graham: ‘Let’s Get In On The Ground. There’s A Lot Of Money To Be Made In Libya'

    http://thinkprogress.org/security/20...ey-to-be-made/

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has had no shortage of criticisms for Obama administration’s handling of NATO air support for Libyan rebels. But with news this morning of Muammar Qaddafi’s death, Graham offered a new set of criticisms for the administration’s policy of working with a NATO coalition in Libya. Graham, appearing on Fox News, said:

    One of the problems I have with “leading from behind” is that when a day like this comes, we don’t have the infrastructure in place that we could have. I’m glad it ended the way it did. It took longer than it should have. If we could have kept American air power in the fight it would have been over quicker. Sixty-thousand Libyans have been wounded, 3,000 maimed, 25,000 killed. Let’s get in on the ground. There is a lot of money to be made in the future in Libya. Lot of oil to be produced. Let’s get on the ground and help the Libyan people establish a democracy and a functioning economy based on free market principles.

    How could he mention 25,000 people killed and then making money in one breath? He disgusts me.

    Hey Lindsey, why don't you start establishing "free market principles" in your own country before you start trying force other countries to do it.

    Why do that when we can force our democracy on those war torn socialists and make a ton of money? Everything is in place now that the "evil" dictator guy is dead. We did just win the battle after all. They should pay us back and be grateful.

    Oct 20 (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank have visited Libya and will return there in "coming weeks" to assess economic and financial needs, an IMF spokesman said on Thursday.

    They'll need a new Embassy, State Buildings, Power Plants, Business Parks, Infrastructure, and more... a lot more. ~ Think About It. We can saddle the Libyans deeply in debt for our services and they'll pay us back with interest for years upon years. $Money ... $Money ... $Money. Plus, look at all the jobs we've created for the embattled civilians. They should be thanking us because we work wonders ... for the survivors.

    Do it now. First come first served.

    I pray that someday Lindsey Graham shares the exact same fate as Gadaffi received.

    Because he doesn't believe in free markets?

    This douchebag had championed bombing and invasion of Iraq based on lies, greed and racial revenge also that resulted in killing/maiming/exile of millions of innocent children, women and men.

    This fellow should, by all rights, be a laughing stock.
