  4. Hello there, here I am. Guess it’s an end of an era with the passing of Buckles. You know, the Great War is largely a forgotten war in the US, innit? I barely learned anything about it during school, and then when me and hubs were stationed in England, I realized how it truly wiped out a generation of men in England and Europe generally.

  24. Farrakhan defends Libya’s Gadhafi as ‘brother’

    By Manya Brachear Tribune reporter

    Warning that destruction could be on America’s doorstep because it oppresses “God’s chosen people,” Minister Louis Farrakhan, the controversial Nation of Islam leader, defended Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi today, calling the U.S. action in Libya hypocrisy.

    Speaking from the pulpit of Chicago’s Mosque Maryam, the Nation of Islam’s international headquarters, purchased 40 years ago with a $3 million loan from Gadhafi, Farrakhan blamed demons for altering President Barack Obama’s moral conscience and driving the assault on Gadhafi, who he calls a brother.

    “It is a terrible thing for me to hear my brother called all these ugly and filthy names when I can’t recognize him as that,” Farrakhan said to the crowd assembled at the mosque on Chicago’s South Side. “Even though the current tide is moving against him … how can I refuse to raise my voice in his defense? Why would I back down from those who have given so much?”

    Though they haven’t spoken since 2005, Farrakhan and Gadhafi have been allies for decades. In 1996, around the time Gadhafi shifted from pan-Arab to pan-African ambitions, Farrakhan was criticized for traveling to meet the leader in Tripoli.

    The following year, Gadhafi addressed Nation of Islam members via satellite, lauding Farrakhan for being a “courageous freedom fighter” who galvanized African-Americans at the Million Man March in Washington, D.C., and Muslims in nations around the world. During that speech, Gadhafi panned America for taxing poor people, who the Libyan leader said do not benefit from space exploration or support of “a Hebrew state.”

    “Consequently,” he said, “the voice of Louis Farrakhan will be heard among the simple people louder than the president of the United States.”

    On Thursday, Farrakhan said scenes from an earthquake- and tsunami-ravaged Japan inspired him to warn the American people about an impending natural disaster that will punish them for their arrogance.

    “A major earthquake is on the way to you and me and us,” he said. “Death and destruction is at the door of all of us, and we are worse prepared than the Japanese.”

    Farrakhan cautioned Obama that he was being used as a pawn to oppress his own people in Africa. He insisted several times that Jews controlled the media and pressured Obama to take so-called humanitarian action in Libya, but not in other places such as the Gaza Strip.

    “The stupid mistake we make is assuming the president is the supreme power,” Farrakhan said. “The mad dogs are growling and grinding in Washington, D.C.,” referring to one of Gadhafi’s nicknames, “Mad Dog of the Middle East.”

    He commended former White House correspondent Helen Thomas for her honesty and candor in recent controversial remarks about Israel and the Palestinians and blamed the Jewish-run media for ousting her. He also commended Gadhafi for plans to nationalize Libya’s oil industry to benefit his own people and other poor African nations.

    But Rachel Bronson, vice president for programs and studies at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, said it’s questionable how much profit from oil was invested in Libya and how much was funneled to other African countries.

    To his credit, Gadhafi has helped build infrastructure and put food on the table in extremely poor African nations, she said. But in doing so he has backed “pretty nasty regimes,” Bronson said.

    She conceded that America “hasn’t done much better.” But the humanitarian element of the intervention in Libya cannot be denied, she said.

    “Gadhafi as a state leader made the statement that he was going to wipe out Benghazi,” she said. “The language was one of sheer brutality and taking no responsibility for protecting his people.”

    At one point in his talk on Thursday, Farrakhan projected photographs featuring Gadhafi in the cheerful company of European leaders including former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. Farrakhan blamed those leaders for “lulling 1/8 Gadhafi 3/8 to sleep” before they went after him.

    Brian Endless, an expert in United Nations and security issues in the Middle East and Central Africa at Loyola University, attributed the recent thaw between Gadhafi and U.S. administrations to their mutual animus for Islamic fundamentalism and the al Qaeda terror organization. Libyan intelligence enabled the U.S. to find key Al Qaeda operatives after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

    Kamm Howard of the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America lauded Farrakhan for speaking the truth on Thursday. Howard said he believes the rebels are murdering Libyans of African descent and said nations who go against Gadhafi are guilty of ethnic cleansing.

    “If one African person is being abused, we’re all being abused,” Howard said.

    Farrakhan never mentioned ethnic cleansing in his address. But he said he didn’t fault Gadhafi for going after “traitors.”

    Though most members referred any questions to Farrakhan’s spokespeople, member Nathan Muhammad of Chicago said he supported everything the Nation of Islam’s leader had said.

    “It’s kind of hard to follow up the Minister,” he said. “He speaks clearly and plainly to the issues.”
