The Palin Doctrine emerges

The New York Sun carries a piece sure to stir up the Palin haters and embolden the Palin lovers:

SarahPalin.jpgThe 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 Governor Palin stated three weeks ago should have been America's response to the political and humanitarian crisis now unfolding there.

The former GOP vice presidential candidate was being interviewed on February 23rd on national television by Sean Hannity on a range of issues. On the Libya crisis, she proposed a no-fly-zone to protect the armed and un-armed opposition to the Qaddafi regime. Mrs. Palin's formulation had been blogged about for nearly a week when it was echoed by the man who, before the Iraq war, had led the Iraq democratic movement in exile, Ahmed Chalabi.

A long-time foe of Saddam Hussein who has emerged as a leading figure in Iraq's democratically elected legislature. Mr Chalabi recounted in the Wall Street Journal how President George H. W. Bush's 1991 call for a popular uprising against Saddam had been heeded by the Iraqi people, only to have Saddam then murder some 30,000 of them from helicopter gunships while the Western world stood by.

Not again, Mr. Chalabi pleaded in his essay, and explicitly demanded a Libyan no-fly-zone. But it now it seems Qaddafi will be allowed to repeat a Saddam-style repression, even as President Obama, and the rest of what he likes to call the international community, is "watching carefully."

Mrs. Palin also continues to link America's energy policy -- a realm in which she has experience -- and U.S. foreign and anti-terrorism policies. She recognizes that the ongoing transfer of billions of U.S. petro-dollars to unstable or even hostile Mideast regimes has, since the formation in 1973 of the Organization of Petoleum Exporting Countries, been an drain on U.S. financial resources.


The Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin -- certainly no knee-jerk advocate for Sarah Palin -- wrote just a few weeks ago that Palin turns out to [also] have been correct in the prediction she made to Barbara Walters, in a much-noted November 2009 interview. Palin stated she was opposed to Obama's opposition to Israel's settlement policies because "[m]ore and more Jewish people will be flocking to Israel in the days and weeks and months ahead." Now, as Rubin noted, Israel's Central Bureau of Statistics confirms that the pace of immigration to Israel rose 14% to 16,633 from the level in 2009, most coming from Russia or America.

Let's summarize this quickly.

Barack Hussein Obama is proving to not be the person the media portrayed him to be since his emergence on the political scene.

And Sarah Palin is proving to not be the person the media portrayed her to be since her emergence on the political scene.

What's the lesson here folks?

I wonder if Palin's public position was a factor in Obama's reluctance to do it?

This is Palin at her best. She posts something on Face Book and the MSM jumps on it. I don't think she's running. She exerts tremendous influence over the political debate right where she is now. She gets to stay in her favorite state and jab the Oval Office anytime she wants.

no matter what you say about sarah palin, she is infinitely more qualified to be president than barack obama.

why does the media hate her?

when other republicans are looking for a way to be on both sides of every issue, sarah consistently demonstrates the kind of leadership qualities this country is sorely lacking in the white house and congress.

The MSM hate her because she is a gun toting, pro life, God fearing woman. She doesn't fit their ideal of the modern woman. But between her, Bachman, Malkin, Graham, Coulter and others, they have proven they have more balls then their male counterparts in the GOP.

I don't know if she will run, but if she does, she will finally be able to state HER views and policies instead of having a loser candidate screen them. ww

Wow, a Sarah Palin post that's been up for almost 3 hours with only 4 comments? Have the Marxist trolls gone on strike?

Sarah Palin is smart, she's experienced, she has integrity, and she's full of common sense. LOL, I really think people don't know how to deal with that! In politics that almost makes her a freak of nature.

Thanks Woop, for once again demonstrating that leftist are so addlepated and/or brainwashed they can't tell the difference between reality and the words of a misogynistic, Marxist comedian. I knew you'd come through for us.

Paul Hooson:

Ahmed Chalabi is hardly a true friend of the U.S. or U.S. interests. He not only sold grossly wrong information to the CIA about Saddam Hussein for a high price leading to the Iraq War where no real WMDs were found(Chalabi's information he sold the CIA about claimed Iraq WMDs proved to be almost entirely false), while being a friend of Iran and later providing Iran a secret U.S. code for payment. He has been under criminal investigation before for Iraqi currency fraud and other things. Chalabi has made himself very wealthy by selling both the U.S. and Iran often wrong information. He's out for himself, and himself only. Look up his Wikipedia information page. This isn't a good guy here.
