Obama answers failed airline bombing with threat of new wars By Bill Van Auken

Three days after the failed attempt by a 23-year-old Nigerian student to trigger an explosion on a Northwest Airlines passenger jet, President Barack Obama threatened to unleash US military power in Yemen and across the globe.

Obama interrupted his Hawaii vacation Monday to deliver his bellicose remarks in the face of a crescendo of Republican criticism. The Republican right has tried to exploit the abortive attack in order to indict the Democratic administration as “soft” on terrorism.


In his remarks Monday, Obama justified these actions as a means of keeping the American public “safe and secure” in the face of what he termed “a serious reminder of the dangers that we face and the nature of those who threaten our homeland.”

The reality is that the military actions being prepared by Washington will have just the opposite effect. If the statement attributed to the group Al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula claiming responsibility is to be believed, the attempted airline bombing was undertaken in retaliation for the December 17 US bombing of Yemen that claimed the lives of more than 60 civilians, nearly half of them women and children.

Fallout from bomb plot rocks US – 30 Dec 09

December 29, 2009

The US president has said the attempted bombing of a US airliner indicates a “systemic failure” of security measures.

But airline safety procedures are not the only things that may change after the botched attack.

The effort to return US detainees held at Guantanamo Bay to Yemen may also be in jeopardy.

  2. Since Cain and Abel there had been crimes against innocents perpetuated by those that covet and profit at others expenses…
    Six thousand years latter here we are in the XXI century facing the same crimes perpetuated by the same greed and evil.
    Today the corruption that engulfs all our planetary economic and political systems is closing toward a globalized death-end path of wars, confrontation, lies, conspiracy and obvious machinations of deceive, and the goals keep being the same: Gain, power, control, dominion on others.
    But those sinister forces which act in the hide to fulfill those goals, are well detected by the other force which uncovered Cain’s criminal plot against his own brother.
    God knows every work of evil with its perpetrators, and in Cain God had curse every work of this nature and each of those individuals involved in them.
    God also had allowed these enterprises of organized crime to keep going because humanity has a fixed time for growth and development and a history to create and tell. In that way, every body and every thing that had been created and is still created will have a chance to represent, with their own works, their real self nature and to get, in some point, what they deserve and to be put in the place where they belong; more than any thing else humans will get this treatment because of our close parenthood with God.

    I completely believe those thing that I wrote above, and being tired of all the political and economical foolish charade in which some greedy and evil individuals and groups of power insist on keeping us submerged and kidnapped, I had decide to ask God who is who in this war of “good” vs. evil.
    The answer is that the source of evil is part of our side. The source of evil are those that profit with wars and conflicts of all sorts. Those that tell lies to obtain gain and support to perpetuate their agendas of control and dominion. Those that invest on enterprises to create chaos and destruction to impose their rules and strategies.

    The ongoing wars “against” terror and drugs had been created to perpetuate terror and drug-finances; the tactic is like putting-off fire adding more fuel to create explosions to suffocate the fire. In the meanwhile millions are made by selling weapons, controlling drugs territories for profit and to eliminate whole populations. The answer from God also tells me that those who are the instigators of these actions and policies, are in pact with Satan him self; who is their commander in chief and who had swered war against God and humanity.
    These chaos and violence instigators are embedded into all the governments of the world including the USA government, and it had been like this for hundreds or even thousands of years; completely in control of the world since they assassinated Jesus Christ and his followers to create a false religion and spirituality. In our country the rebellion against good started with the assassination of Lincoln and got hold of the country with the imposition of the Federal Reserve taking control of the economy and wall street and the bankers ruling politics and the finances of the Nation; all in the name of profit and greed no matter how and from who or where.

    Today, the end of the year 2009 the war of the century announced by the former administration of GWB, keeps going at full speed under the administration of BHO, gaining steam now with a new mini 9/11/01 now perpetuated in 12/25/09 and reinforced with hateful rhetoric of vengeance, violence and crime, all tailored to keep fear in the minds and hearts of people and to gain support to keep the fight on and business going.
    One day ,sooner than latter, we’ll face the consequences and truth of all these machinations of evil and we’ll wish that we would had been more brave and honest to had have the determination to stop the none sense in which we are now entrapped by greed, self indulgence and plain evil.
    May God, in the name of Jesus Christ, unmask the conspiracy of evil set to destroy us all.
