Obama's Defining Moment: Targeted Assassination

by & Sunday, Oct. 02, 2011 at 10:42 PM

From his first week in office, Obama has been actively using drones to kill people all to protect US oil profits around the world. This time, he assassinated 2 American citizens, Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan, apparently as a favor for the US-backed dictator of Yemen, Ali Abdullah Saleh, who is being opposed by mass protests. Clearly, this phony lawyer does not believe in due process.

From his first week in office, Obama has been actively using drones to kill people all to protect US oil profits around the world. This time, he assassinated 2 American citizens, Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan, apparently as a favor for the US-backed dictator of Yemen, Ali Abdullah Saleh, who is being opposed by mass protests. Clearly, this phony lawyer does not believe in due process, charging people with a crime, having a trial where evidence must be presented and cross-examined, having a jury of the defendant's peers and the like.

The lesson is not from Nuremberg, where most of the Nazi defendants were soon freed and lived well, to a ripe old age, and many were welcomed in the US because they were staunch anti-communists.

The lesson is from Nazi Germany, where the chickens always came home to roost. The heinous crimes against humanity perpetrated by Obama abroad are the same as his heinous crimes against the workingclass at home in his defense of the capitalist class, whom he represents. We have massive poverty and unemployment, while Obama helps make the rich richer. He supports the death penalty and all other aspects of the police state. He did not bother to get a federal civil rights injunction to save Troy Davis based on there being no case as 7 of 9 witnesses recanted and Davis did not have a jury of his peers. His defense of British Petroleum's oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and of nuclear power is a threat to all our lives and the planet, from which the planet cannot recover, especially in the case of nuclear contamination.

You have a choice on the ballot. We have the socialist Peace & Freedom Party as well as the Green Party which opposes all of the horors perpetrated by the Democrats and Republicans. See

was that the reason?

Was it REALLY "ALL" to protect oil profits from around the world? OR was it to divert attention away from Obama playing the role of the red neck sheriff in standing against Palestinian statehood on a tiny portion of the Palestinian's homeland while appeasing the Zionist's blood soaked occupation of other portions of the Palestinian's homeland?
