The Anything and Everything
July 27, 2010
Obama seems to be following in the footsteps of some of his ‘venerable’ predecessors as United States president and commander-in-chief. Men who piled up more than their fair share of body bags, with their time in the Oval Office; men such as Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan and, of course, George W. ‘Junior’ Bush. As long as the U.S. empire continues to persist without radical structural changes, we can essentially be assured of no dove, or peacenik, or humanitarian as commander-in-chief. Obama has escalated illegal drone attacks in Afghanistan and Pakistan since his inauguration as president, his talk on Israel has changed, but he still continues to unquestioningly support the apartheid government, and the U.S. just gave its blessing to a death squad leader coming to power in Colombia — who has been celebrated as a ‘democrat’ and Colombia as a ‘role model’ by ‘mainstream’ news organizations. Change has undoubtedly come to Washington, and America is still; seemingly interminably, at war with Eurasia, and anyone that will help us kill or capture Goldstein, we consider to be an essential asset and friend.
