Farrakhan Warns Obama On Libya: ‘Who The Hell Do You Think You Are???’

The UN-sanctioned attack on rebels and non-combatant civilians loyal to strongman Muammar Gaddafi in Libya have been met with approval by US Republicans.

Some Democrats are questioning Obama’s decision to send air assaults last week without Congressional approval or a clear definition of America’s role in the mission in Libya.

Minister Louis Farrakhan spoke with about the war in Libya and offered words to President Obama as he shed light on what he feels is the reason for American intervention.

“Our dear brother [Obama] has to be very careful in his decision…whenever government wants you to think and act in a certain way that would bring justification to an action that they are already planning to make, they must make the person that they hate, the boogey man.”



Farrakhan states that in every nation there is dissatisfaction and the CIA moves into a country and aligns with the people to stimulate a revolt against a leader that they don’t like. Although the Libyan people have legitimate grievances, The Minister suggests that imperialist powers such as France, England and the United States aren’t truly concerned with the countrymen.

“What is their dissatisfaction about?” Asks Farrakhan, “…do they have jobs? Yes. Do they have food? Yes. Has Gaddafi used the oil money to build Libya? Yes…Did he impose farming in the desert so that they could feed their own people? Yes.

He warns that the Libyans  may unite against the US and other countries if they kill Gaddafi. He advises that Barack meets with the country’s leader instead of using force and Louis gives his thoughts on the actual reason for war strikes.

“Don’t tell me and wise Black people or White people that you’re interested in Black suffering. Where were you in Rwanda? Where are you in the Congo? Why did you go to Darfur? Because oil is there! No, you don’t want to save the Libyan people, that’s your noble motive to hide your wicked agenda.”
