Obama’s War Grows as Support Shrinks (tags)

Some careful listening has exposed the lie that a U.S. attack (war) against Syria would be, as Obama put it, “a shot across the bow,” i.e. a “tiny war.” But even before the first missile is launched the birth of Obama’s baby war began to grow, and when it’s eventually unleashed it will resemble any other fully matured war, complete with massive destruction, the death of untold innocents and yet another Middle Eastern nation torn to pieces.

First Time in History; Democrat Cuts Social Security with Chained CPI (tags)

The upcoming cuts to Social Security are being done by a Democrat President who is supposedly the party of the elderly, the disabled, veterans and the poor. The cuts to Social Security under President Obama include the "chained CPI" that would reduce the regular cost of living increases to the checks each year depending upon the rate of inflation. There is a bipartisan effort to block the latest Social Security cuts being led by Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont who has a petition on his website telling Pres. Obama "NO CUTS to Social Security!"

2nd Drone Survey! Answer 5 Questions! January 27, 2013 (tags)

President Barack Obama is Commander in Chief of the United States Military. The Central Intelligence Agency is NOT part of the United States Military; but, the C.I.A. is ordering the deployment of most of the missile strikes from un-manned computer controlled Drones. Therefore, under whose authority are these strikes taking place? If the United Nations investigation, which is currently going on, proves that the U.S.A. committed "war crimes", then does President Obama avoid responsibility for authorization of these drone strikes under Separation of Powers clause in the U.S. Constitution?

United Nations is Investigating the Foreign Policy of the United States: Killer DRONES ! ! (tags)

The United Nations started an investigation of the "foreign policy" of the United States of America because President Obama has been authorizing killer drone strikes deploying missles allegedly aimed at "terrorists" but which also are killing children and innocent civilians in foreign countries under the guise of fighting the War on Terrorism; and simultaneously President Barack Obama has been violating the sovereign rights of foreign countries by aiming un-manned computer controlled drone missle strikes at them when the U.S. Congress has not officially declared War. President Obama thinks that he has legal precedence because previous U.S. President George Bush got away with this behaviour.

The Central Intelligence Agency is Confused! (tags)

Does the Teachers' Union buy M155s? Does the Electrical Brothers' Union buy Goats? Why is the C.I.A. deploying un-manned Drone Strikes killing children and innocent civilians? How stupid can they be? Those job duties are NOT listed on their "Mission" statement!

President Barack Obama, will you please provide us with some "transparency" and tell us exactly how many "terrorists" have been killed with U.S. Military Un-Manned Drone Strikes, and then how many CHILDREN and innocent civilians have been killed with drone strikes; and then, which number is larger? After you Swear your Oath of Office on the Holy Bible, Mr. President Barack Obama, will you please tell us the truth? Isn't it true that MORE children and innocent civilians have been killed by drone strikes than "terrorists"?

Stop Killing Children with U.S. Military Drone Strikes! (tags)

Please sign this White House petition to stop killing children and innocent civilians in countries like Afghanistan with Un-Manned U.S. Military Drone Strikes. Remember, it's not just about the war they tell you about, it's about the war on drugs, the war on the best marijuana seeds that come from Afghanistan, and the "threat" that if marijuana is legalized in the U.S.A., that countries like Afghanistan will compete with Mexican and Canadian BC bud. But guess what? A lot of BC bud comes from Afghanistan seeds. Can you IMAGINE if U.S. Drones were striking Mexico or BC Canada? Show some compassion for children worldwide and sign this petition to stop DRONE strikes! http://wh.gov/UKpQ Isn't it bad enough that Los Angeles has all those helicopters flying overhead?

U.S. Navy $176+ Million Unmanned Drone Crashed in Maryland Swamp (tags)

One would think for $176+ million we could get a drone that would fly without crashing into a Maryland swamp? Amazing how when Republican politicians grouse about the deficit they forget to mention how much those unmanned drones cost and how poorly they function. Then there's that 17% civilian casualites that just keeps pissing off occupied people enough for them to give up their families and their lives to become terrorists. Sounds like a cycle for perpetual warfare at the expense of the U.S. taxpayers for the sole benefit of the military-industrial complex..

Several Reasons to Oppose Obama's Use of CIA Drone Strikes (tags)

Despite promises of "change" from the GW Bush regime foreign policy of interventionism, President Obama has chosen to follow the path of his predecessor GW by continuing the use of CIA drones to attack terrorist and "accidental" civilian targets. By killing innocent civilians along with their targets, CIA drones increase anger and thus aid in recruitment to terrorist organizations ("blowback"), thereby making more enemies and justification of an expensive military strategy that only benefits military weapons contractors.

Strikes, workers’ protests spread throughout Egypt (tags)

“According to a detailed account published by Al Ahram, the dictator had intended to step down but was persuaded by his wife and son Gamal not to. When this threatened to provoke a further upsurge in the revolutionary movement, the military stepped in and seized power to try to maintain control over the situation. Notably, none of the official middle class “opposition” parties—including the Muslim Brotherhood and Mohamed ElBaradei’s National Association for Change—has condemned the military’s threats against the working class. Striving to maintain illusions in the role of the army, these forces have urged an end to the demonstrations and strikes. ElBaradei and his colleagues are now preparing to enter the military regime. Britain’s Foreign Minister William Hague said yesterday that Egypt’s Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq told him that the current government would be reshuffled to include opposition figures by next week. While the successful elevation of these “opposition” forces would open up opportunities for the individuals involved, for the Egyptian working class it would signify no more than providing a civilian fig-leaf for the military government.”

France: More strikes, opposition to social austerity (tags)

"At Université Lyon-2, students gathered to vote on future action and protest the detention of demonstrators at Corbas prison, according to an account in Lyon-Capitale. They criticized the unions and also bourgeois “left” parties such as the Socialist Party (PS) and its presumed 2012 presidential candidate, Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Strauss-Kahn is currently the head of the International Monetary Fund, where he pressed for massive austerity policies and wage cuts to be imposed on Greek workers in exchange for an IMF bailout, during this spring’s Greek debt crisis. One Lyon student said: “We’re in the street because we have had enough of Sarkozy. We had had enough of [ex- President Jacques] Chirac before and we will have had enough of Strauss-Kahn.... What we do not want anymore is Sarkozy, capitalism, and globalization.”

The name of David Loyn's excellent new book on Afghanistan, from which the Lepel Griffin quote is taken, is: "Butcher and Bolt."

It is time for governments to listen to their people, to start talking and stop preaching.

The Compulsion of Violence: Retaliation (tags)

Retaliation is giving back in kind. We are struck, we strike back. Both President Bush and Osama Bin Laden believe in retaliation; both argue that their strikes are answering attacks, that they are protecting and avenging their people. Both anathematize the other as ruthless and evil. And both are far from the forgiveness and peace their religions preach. In the Koran Allah says "My mercy embraces all things." In the Christian Gospel Christ says "Do not resist evil with evil. If someone strikes you on your right cheek, turn the other one to him as well." Israel also is very righteously into retaliation, answering the abduction of two soldiers with war. Are Bin Laden, Bush and Olmert, reigning leaders who affirm the great monotheisms, more than warriors? The fusion of political and religious leadership in these figures is volatile-they license crusades without check.
