Obama’s Secret War on the American Taxpayer

Obama’s war policy is unrealistic (read stupid)

President Obama, the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner, stated on November 24, 2009, “I feel very confident that when the American people hear a clear rationale for what we’re doing there and how we intend to achieve our goals, that they will be supportive,” he said, speaking at a White House news conference.” It is my intention to finish the job,” he said of the war in Afghanistan. (AP 11/24/09)

In case the Nobel Peace prize Committee is listening to reality, this is the same illegal war that GW Bush inaugurated without UN Security Council approval upon the soil of a sovereign nation, Afghanistan, in 2001.

In case that the American people are listening, since the majority of Afghani people want the US to leave, and the Taliban have more support than Mr. Obama does, one may ask what are the realistic goals that can be realized in Afghanistan? Can the US kill all the Afghanis or at least the Taliban? If so, should he be given the Nobel Peace prize for that dastardly crime? As for al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden, they are in Pakistan, not Afghanistan, according to the CIA.

The stated aim of the invasion was to find Osama bin Laden and other high-ranking Al-Qaida members and put them on trial, to destroy the whole organization of Al-Qaida, and to remove the Taliban regime, which supported and gave safe harbor to Al-Qaida. Since then, Al Qaida has moved and Osama bin Laden is believed to not be in Afghanistan. Hence, one must ask the president, finish what job? Not that the US media will ask that basic question. That is, if we care about our children’s future.

Despite these obvious facts, which are readily available, the president said at the same news conference: “It is in our strategic interests, in our national security interest to make sure that al-Qaida and its extremist allies cannot operate effectively in those areas … We are going to dismantle and degrade their capabilities and ultimately dismantle and destroy their networks.” (AP 11/24/09)

No wonder the Afghan people are increasingly rebelling (call them insurgents if you like). They see the US as foreign invaders, which give domestic demagogues a common target to unite against.

This is political suicide for President Obama, as he is bound to lose, because the will of the Afghani people to throw off foreign invaders is a well-proven historical fact. Although there is much to win for the Belgian, Russian, and US arms dealers (read the military, industrial, police state, and media conglomerate), what is there to win for American taxpayers, homeowners, and consumers?

America is more insecure than ever because of such rogue, loutish, and oppressive centralized heavyhandedness, which masquerade as “foreign policy”, while appalling the civilized world. American popularity abroad reflects this view, and I dare say that it is accurate. Certainly the taxpayer has to look forward to an increased American troop casualties, skyrocketing veteran entitlements, increased GI suicides and domestic violence, increased military budgets, more deficits and debt, less money left over for infra-structure rebuilding, vocational education, health, energy independence, and human services for elderly Americans.

This conveniently puts such issues as campaign/electoral reform, human rights, ocean acidification, global warming, health care, government spying, and education on the backburner. An $11 trillion federal debt, an increasing deficit of trade with China, and our addiction to oil devoid of a realistic energy plan is a catastrophe in waiting. The best president Obama can hope for is that the chickens come home to roost, after his administration is over, but I don’t think so.

The president has blown it. It’s “too bad and too late” for those who voted for him and the other warmongers. America has been left raped, and is slowly dying, while China is arising. This has all been self-created.

Also today, November 24, 2009 on the “Guardian”

Tony Blair’s government knew that prominent members of the Bush administration wanted to topple Saddam Hussein years before the invasion but initially distanced itself from the prospect knowing it would be unlawful, it was disclosed at the Iraq inquiry today.
