Everything Is About Something Different

Bush + Obama = War Crimes?

For some paranoid reason the United States believes it has the right to wage war on innocent civilian people in any sovereign nation anywhere and at anytime. President Obama bought into this paranoia and is now as guilty as George W. Bush and William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton. President Obama will never prosecute Bush or any of his subordinates now. Not that he ever intended to, anyway.

Obama Continues Bush Policy of Deadly Air Strikes in Pakistan

In Pakistan, outrage continues to mount over a US military attack approved by President Obama. Last Friday, unmanned US Predator drones fired missiles at houses in Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas, or FATA, killing as many as twenty-two people, including at least three children.

Pakistan air strikes underscore continuation of Bush policy

President Barack Obama launched his first air strikes into Pakistan indicating that he will continue the Bush policy of unilateral military action against the spoken will of the Pakistani government.This is the first action since Obama took office on Tuesday that is likely to attract some opposition from progressive groups that supported him strongly during the campaign. Vanity Fair has this to say:

Obama can’t be expected to pander to liberals for the next four years. But the decision to double down in Afghanistan carries considerable risk. Like the economy, it is a huge problem. But even the economy can be expected to bounce back sometime in the next few years. If Afghanistan turns into Obama’s Iraq, he may miss the support of the anti-war left, which, it’s worth remembering, helped propel him past Hillary Clinton not so very long ago

This is not defending Democratic Freedom and Justice. This is enforcing Terror and Anarchy.

Barack Obama could become George W. Bush on steroids.

  1. Your statement, “For some paranoid reason the United States believes it has the right to wage war on innocent civilian people in any sovereign nation anywhere and at anytime” is totally uninformed baloney! The terrorist Taliban in Pakistan are not innocent, but guilty to the core. They are constantly exploiting the citizens of Pakistan and Afghanistan commiting atrocious crimes against truly innocent men, women and children. Wake up!

    • Well both points seem to be rather overstated to make a point – but if your point is about accuracy, then it has missed.

      I agree with either statement – the Taliban aren’t so much favoured as they’re violent and able to encourage support with fear of reprisal. I don’t mind them dying so much.

      However, the jihadis are being nutty because their backs are to the wall. Their tactics of IEDs and suicide attacks are indicative of how desperate they are. They don’t have the technology to make UAVs, and believe me, if they could, they would.

  3. “You don’t mind them dying so much.” Probably one of the most obscene and totally corrupt comments ever made on my blog.
