President Obama, UN Assembly And A World Gone Mad!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 24, 2014 by sheriffali

Every action has a reaction and George W Bush, Dick Cheney and the War Monger Neocons in the Bush Administration illegal invasion of Iraq, set the world on fire and it is going to take more than water to put out the flames.

 

America’s overall problems have been in the making for decades, yet Republicans, some Democrats and the uninformed, ignorant, brainwashed right-wing voters; blame President Obama for all that ails America.

 

All of the nonsense about the Media being 90% or more liberal is truly a farce. Since becoming President under difficult circumstances caused by Bush and Cheney, the assault On Obama from most of the Media, has been relentless. Obama took Office when we were in a Financial meltdown; Housing Collapse; Bank Closures; Job losses that drove the unemployment rate to 10.2%; two out of control unpaid for wars of 5.1 trillion; two unpaid tax cut for the rich totaling 1.2 trillion dollars and a collapse in the Stock Market with America’s credibility out the door, President Obama has done a good job and then some, pulling us out of the deep and unforgiving waters Bush threw us into.

 

As for the Middle East Gone mad, no amount of American Boots on the ground in the Middle East is going to fix what is wrong in the Arab World, and unless or until the Arabs find a Political solution for their problems, all we can really do, is to stop the madness as best as we can, but, there isn’t any military solution to rectify religious and ethnic problems.

 

We have firsthand knowledge of being in Iraq for eight years with thousands of lives lost; tens of thousands injured; Military Suicides at a rate of 22 per day; hundreds of thousands of Iraqis killed at a cost of 1.7 trillion dollars, and of course, there are those like McCain and Graham beating the War Drum to send other people’s children to get killed in the middle of madness.

 

So long as President Obama keep his word and do not reinvade Iraq with tens of thousands of troops, his decision that he recently implemented would not solve the problems, but it may buy the Arabs time to readjust.

BARACK OBAMA - UN SEP 24 14

Fox News Hosts and their Republican Guests contracted Political Mouth Syphilis!

Fox News’ Hosts and their Republican Guests certainly have Political Mouth Syphilis and is the result of their political environmental influences; hence the congeniality of their infection was acquired from their collective possessiveness of being obsessive with President Obama.

 

The exploding and imploding Middle East is the direct result of Bush and Cheney’s Invasion of Iraq and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to ascertain that fact. Republicans and Fox News have and continue to blame President Obama for the disarray that has festered in the Middle East since our invasion of Iraq.

 

However, let us deal with facts and not phantasmagoric rationales and internecine narcissism. Illinois State Senator Barack Obama in 2002 position about invading Iraq, is certainly one for the History Books and it should be viewed very objectively, because whether you are Pro-Obama or Anti-Obama, what he said in 2002, has come to full fruition.

 

“I know that even a successful war against Iraq will require a U.S. occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences. I know that an invasion of Iraq without a clear rationale and without strong International support will only fan the flames of the Middle East, and encourage the worst, rather than the best, impulses of the Arab world, and strengthen the recruitment arm of al-Qaida. I am not opposed to all wars. I’m opposed to dumb wars.” Illinois State Senator Barack Obama 2002.

 

In that very short paragraph as articulated by then State Senator Obama, we would have to be profoundly dishonest to say that what Obama stated in 2002 has not only come to pass, but we that it continues with no end in sight. And, for those that are hell-bent on President Obama sending American troops into that civil and religious fracas, they haven’t learned anything from the devastation we brought unto ourselves and to the world, when we invaded Iraq in 2003.

AMERICA - FOX NEWS - SYPHILIS - 4

 

Jim Wright, Iraq War Veteran said; “I’ll tell you what, let’s go back to Iraq;

Oh, yes, let us do that, I’ll dig out my uniform and strap on my Pistol and gird up my Sword and ride into battle again, so long as Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, Rush Limbaugh, Anne Coulter, Glen Beck, Michael Savage, Paul Ryan, Sarah Palin, Rick Perry, and every single one of the powered, Botoxed talking heads at Fox News are in the Vanguard.

 

That’s right, you cowards, you put on a uniform and lead the charge this time.” [Verbatim]

 

Listening to John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Dick Cheney, Paul Bremmer and their mouth piece at Fox News, one would think that the terrible ordeal our Soldiers encountered during an uncalled for invasion of Iraq that left, 4,500 dead, over 50,000 wounded, more than 75,000 with severe mental problems at a cost of 1.7 trillion dollars, that somehow the Soldiers just want to turn around and reinvade Iraq.

 

Republicans blocked the 21 Billion dollars Veterans Bill; refuse to extend the Unemployment Insurance that returning Veterans need; slashed Food Stamps that helps to subsidize Veterans and yet Republicans and the loud mouths at Fox News totally bankrupt of shame, are making up stories, the lies that got us into Iraq in the first place, and in the name of Patriotism for which Republicans and the people at Fox News are totally bankrupt of, are auguring day and night that the chaos in Iraq is somehow President Obama’s fault.

 

One significant bold-faced lie they are telling is that Obama didn’t leave a residual force in Iraq. How could he? George W Bush in late 2008 signed an agreement with the Iraqi Government that all Americans Forces would leave Iraq at the end of 2011. There was an understanding that Prime Minister Nour al-Maliki would sign a Status of Forces Agreement that would provide immunity to our residual Soldiers from Iraqi Laws. Mr. Maliki who was basically installed as Prime Minister by George W Bush, he is an Iraqi Shiite that lived in exile in Iran for 20 years. He didn’t return until George W Bush invaded Iraq and captured Saddam Hussein. Prior to the end of 2011 Mr. Maliki refused to sign the SOFA and Obama had no choice but to remove all American troops.

 

Republicans and Fox go further with their lies and say that the Obama Administration didn’t try hard enough to get the SOFA signed. It really didn’t matter who was President because Nour al-Maliki allegiance is with Iran and Iran was calling the shots. Iran made it clear to Maliki that they Iran didn’t want any American troops left in Iraq. America was never an occupier of other people’s country, so the only alternative for Mr. Obama would have been to remain an occupier and continue to have American troops killed and wounded at a cost of three billion dollars per week.

 

Nour al-Maliki after America exited he fired all of the highly trained Commanders and installed his cronies, all Shiites. What you see now that is happening in Iraq is the retribution by the Shiites that caused the Sunnis to abandon the Iraqi Army, because they don’t see the need to fight for a country where the “installed” Government, has literally preyed on them.

 

I would trust President Obama’s judgment to do what is best in this situation, rather than the internecine Pundits and talking heads that are constantly on the Television.
