How Can Anyone Still Like Obama?

In this country President Obama still enjoys a hallowed reputation which he earned way back in 2008. A reputation as a man of peace, which earned him a Nobel peace prize the following year. It could be argued that there has never been a less deserving winner, until you realise Henry Kissinger somehow got his hands on the award back in 1973. On Tuesday a major article appeared in The New York Times discussing the Obama administrations (counter) terrorism methods. For those who don’t know, the favoured weapon of the administration is the drone, a UAV controlled from a base in Nevada to unleash horror on civilians and enemy combatants alike. It has been used in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia in Obama’s escalation of Middle Eastern wars. Obama loves this weapon with all his heart, and from reading the article clearly enjoys choosing the people that the drones will send to their doom. Here’s an excerpt from it:

So whilst you talk about how cool Obama is by appearing on chat shows and cracking jokes remember what the man is doing. Sanctioning extra judicial murder via remote controlled machines, picking targets and signing their death warrants. If this was George Bush people would rightly be furious, but this is St Obama, Nobel peace prize winner.
