War on terror – Scripted by Obama

The Washington Independent » Obama’s Risky Pakistan Strategy

Barack Obama, … repeated an argument about the war on terror that he’s made for more than a year. ” If the United States has Al Qaeda, bin Laden, top-level lieutenants in our sights,” said Obama, “and Pakistan is unable or unwilling to act, then we should take them out.”

When Obama first raised the prospect of unilateral military action, under certain conditions, against the Al Qaeda senior leadership in Pakistan during a Democratic primary debate last August, both his rivals and the press criticized him — not necessarily for being wrong, but for making the argument in public. “You shouldn’t always say everything you think when you’re running for president,” Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) responded, “because it could have consequences across the world.”

Behind the web of terror

Iran, Afghanistan Pakistan, Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon, the Middle East – all these hotbeds of unrest, terrorism, instability have a long history of American intervention after WW2. And by the Anglo Saxon Bloc between the two world wars. Many of these are (ex) allies, client states (or victims) of the US.

Mr.Obama you will have to confront this painful history.

Of American irresponsibility and cowboy foreign policy. Your Pakistani statements, if any indicator, are dangerous. It sets off another round of American intervention. Fools rush in where angels fear to tread, Mr.Obama. Your predeccessor, JFK started the Vietnam War. Roosevelt, who many are asking you to emulate, exapnded a European conflict, funded it and joined the war to make it into the WW2.

Do you have a stomach for it, Mr.Obama?
