This guy is even worse than The Chimp – who after all only invaded two countries. Obama has added at least three more to the roster:
October 15, 2011 — WASHINGTON, D.C. : U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday announced the deployment of around 100 U.S. special operations troops to Uganda to fight the rebel group known as the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).
In a letter to Congress, Obama informed that in the next months further U.S. troops will be shipped out to other African countries as well, including South Sudan, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
However, the President noted that although the deployed U.S. forces are combat-equipped, “they will only be providing information, advice and assistance to partner nation forces, and they will not themselves engage LRA forces unless necessary for self-defense.” (Yeah, sure.)
In May 2010, President Obama signed into law the LRA Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act which reaffirmed the U.S. commitment to support regional partners’ efforts to end the ‘atrocities’ committed by LRA in central Africa.
It amazes me how the lame=stream media can carry on about the “atrocities” committed in some third world country and conveniently ignore the carnage the US government has wrought throughout the world. Don’t get me wrong, I am sympathetic to the plight of people under the yoke of oppression where ever it rears its ugly head. But just like a fight between my neighbors, it’s none of my business until it moves into my front yard. So before anyone in this country urges more foreign intervention, they’d better take a long hard look at the consequences of US military actions on civilians worldwide. The predator drone attacks, the gawdawful birth defects and cancers from depleted uranium residue, the homelessness and privation US military occupation has led to. All of these things are sure to come home to roost on this nation.
Just as in physics, you get an equal and opposite reaction for every action you take. I often wonder if the reason we have seen our jobs going overseas, our housing prices plummet, our industry dry up, the destruction of the family and a burgeoning police state aren’t the results of allowing this to go on. Everyone here knows that all the various “conflicts” this nation are currently involved in are unjust. None of our present “wars” are over anything other than power and the exploitation of natural resources for the benefit of the elite. I have to ask myself: Are we reaping what we’ve sown? Can we expect the situation here to get worse? How much worse?
When will the insanity end?! Over 20 years of idiocy and it does not seem to end.
Perhaps when there is no more money to borrow and the printing press is broken this will stop. (One can hope it will come before this, but who knows when the idiocy will stop.)
It’s become so routinized that almost no one even pays attention anymore. Much less really cares.
But, remember: They hate us for our freedoms.
I’m afraid so. Only when the money completely runs out will the situation improve. The killings and gang warfare in northern Mexico will also mercifully end on the same blessed day the drug war is officially pronounced dead from lack of nutrition. My fortune cookie says to expect Leviathan’s thrashing to intensify the more its food supply is threatened.
