Florida Senator Marco Rubio sought to enhance his international reputation as a great humanitarian by tweeting pictures of the 2011 execution of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Rubio is currently spearheading efforts to bring about a regime change in Venezuela.
Gaddafi had been captured by Islamist rebels and summarily executed after a brief civil war in 2011.
Rubio’s gone on to tweet photos of numerous other dictators and illiberal leaders in a “before/after” setting.
Rubio’s experiences clamoring for regime change in Libya don’t seem to have led him to question another regime operation in Venezuela. The American-led NATO operation that intervened in the Libyan Civil War to overthrow Gaddafi is widely thought to have ended in disaster, as the North African country is largely a failed state today, eight years later.
The formerly stable(by regional standards) nation now is a host to a massive human trafficking and slave trading criminal element. It’s also a host to one of the biggest ISIS presences in the Arab world.
A repeat of the disastrous experience of Libyan regime change in Venezuela would have damaging consequences throughout Latin America, and negative repercussions in the United States as well. If sustained efforts to remove Venezuela’s dictatorial President Nicolas Maduro boil into open and sustained conflict, it’s possible millions of Venezuelans could be compelled to flee not only their own country but South America entirely, seeking refuge in United States.
Neoconservative elements embedded within the Trump administration continue to clamor for the removal of Maduro regardless of the geopolitical consequences for the United States. Rubio has made it clear he favors “multilateral” foreign intervention in the troubled Latin American nation.
NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine
Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
