US taxpayers shouldn't have been forced to transfer $2 billion or even a penny to Libya. We don't have the money and have no business in such a hell hole unless it's to commit suicide like we've been doing in Afghanistan. Lindsey Graham doesn't mind that, now wants to rake in business deals there.

Appearing on Fox News, Senator Lindsey Graham said:
""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.""...

Blacks have been fleeing Libya due to longtime ethnic cleansing. Some are being caught, brutalized, and prevented from leaving. Even if they make it out of Libya they're starving, penniless refugees, thanks to Obama. African blacks have been chased by both Gaddafi and 'rebels'-everyone in Libya hates blacks. Estimated US taxpayer contribution to this ranges from $100 to $300 million dollars a week (item near end of article) for Islamic killers to run a holocaust.

"The same NATO countries that have waged war on Libya in the name of “protecting civilians” have given “an abysmal response to the plight” of refugees during this conflict,

"Once again, liberals have bought into American power as a force for good. But it's just another ugly, expensive war we now own""Liberal hawks never seem to learn that you can't get healthcare, decent schools and less unemployment by bombing smaller nations. Military adventures trump domestic rehab every time."...
The report underscores the hypocrisy of the claims made by Washington, London and Paris that the war they waged to overthrow the Gaddafi regime in Libya was motivated by a concern to “protect civilians.” The hostility and indifference toward the refugees squeezed out of the country by NATO bombardments and racist violence is emblematic of an imperialist war that has used “humanitarianism” as a pretext for the conquest of an oil-rich North African country."
