This week U.S. embassies in Libya, Egypt and Yemen have been attacked by the angry people who live on the land. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is crumbling, as their desires of world domination are being challenged by their lack of resources, personnel, and global support. Economic powers, those who set the reserve currency status and the world gold price in London, are behind the fighting force called NATO and have used the force since World War II to punish rogue states and central banks trying to break away from their tyrannic economic system.
In Libya, the U.S. ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was smoked out in the embassy, until he was dragged outside by the angry mob after they torched the building. It is always a tragedy whenever someone loses their life. Human beings were not put on this earth to butcher each other over land or resources.

“In the early days of the Libyan revolution I asked Chris to be our envoy to the rebel opposition. He arrived on a cargo ship in the Port of Benghazi and began building our relationships with Libya’s revolutionaries. He risked his life to stop a tyrant, then gave his life trying to help build a better Libya. The world needs more Chris Stevenses. I spoke with his sister Ann this morning and told her that he will be remembered as a hero by many nations."
The world needs more Chris Stevenses? Perhaps the world could use a few more Custers, too.

In the future, it will be hard for warlords like Clinton to find people stupid enough to invade another's country illegally. The risk isn't worth the reward. In the case of Stevens, he sneaked into Libya on a Greek cargo ship under the cover of darkness. After dodging bullets and hiding in hotels, he was finally able to move into the embassy after NATO bombed Libya into ruins and Colonel Gaddafi's army was defeated.
People like Stevens, are just as bloodthirsty as soldiers with a weapon. They are invaders, subjugaters, and controllers. They are rulers trying to impose their will over people trying to live a self-styled way. Invaders are power-hungry, close-minded bullies that use profoundly more violence to accomplish their goals than native peoples, who are most often heralded by the media as "blood thirsty" or "savage."
All violence and human suffering is unfortunate and tragic. His death should be a warning to all prospective interloping imperialist invaders: Sooner or later the people who live there will hold you to account for following your masters' orders.
People who see his death as heroic can't understand their own lack of freedom or the desire for the same imperialist to take their already limited rights away from them eventually.
Even if we do not win immediately, we will give as lesson to future generations that choosing to protect the nation is an honor and that selling it out is the greatest betrayal that history will remember forever despite the attempts of others to tell you otherwise."
-Muammar Gaddafi, excerpted from the Libyan Leader's Last Will and Testament, written in Sirte, Libya, October 17, 2011
