How Barack Obama Could Do Something Right For Once
Share This Article:
I am not a fan of Barack Obama, for me he is the biggest fraud of this short century. With simple slogans ‘hope’ and ‘change’ he conned Americans into thinking he was something new and different. This has obviously not been the case. Under Obama the United States finally became a banana republic with the NDAA act. He has repeatedly caved into big business interests (on healthcare and austerity measures) and his foreign policy has been no different to that of his predecessors. Expanding the war on terror via drones, he explicitly ordered the execution of a US citizen Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen without arrest or trial among thousands of civilians killed by this remote controlled terror. He vetoed the vote to recognise Palestinian statehood last year and withdrew UNESCO funding just because that organisation did recognise Palestine. He has allowed the illegal settlements to continue and, while speaking of his support for the Arab spring, helped Saudi Arabia and Bahrain to viciously crack down on their protestors.
