OMG ! This Obama Is Taller Than Bush Jnr. Ain’t He ?

This evening in a Colombo Telegraph post, I watched Julian Assange appearing on Skype to address the crowd that had packed the NY City Terminal 5 to grace the opening performance of the rebel UK artiste Maya Arulpragasam born to Sri Lankan Tamil parents and better known as M.I.A. Calling her the most courageous woman working in Western music, locked in London’s Ecuadorian Embassy, Assange told New Yorkers he can only appear via Skype because, “Your government sucks.”

This triggered a thought process that took me to Barrack Obama, the second time elect US President still incumbent, first elected in November 2008 and sworn in January 2009. Nine months later he became a Nobel Peace prize laureate, just for his rhetoric and nothing else. Then I thought, isn’t this a shame that a person who wages a cruel war in Afghanistan, one who sanctioned Drone attacks in Afghanistan where innocent civilians are killed and vows to continue waging that war, is made a peace prize laureate ? I wrote then, “The fact is, no US president could do otherwise, with or without a Nobel Peace prize. Obama as all other US Presidents has to continue SOUTHCOM operations, with a 600 million dollar administrative budget, to service Latin American military assistance, that annually tops over USS $ 120 million. That is not what is more important in Obama being awarded the Peace Prize. It’s the US economy and its heavy dependence on military hardware and armaments. This US economy is an economy that is heavily dependent on waging war, to sustain their heavy armament industry.” Imagine Obama standing next to Mandela ?

During that time I heard him tell the world, “Today we are engaged in a deadly global struggle for those who would intimidate, torture, and murder people for exercising the most basic freedoms. If we are to win this struggle and spread those freedoms, we must keep our own moral compass pointed in a true direction.” He had been saying plenty of similar things, that means nothing to the people in the US and outside US. So, Assange tells New Yorkers, “Your government sucks.”

Obvious ! Assange is locked in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, because the US under Obama may want him extradited to the US for engineering the massive leak of sensitive, security and intelligence related secret documents from US safe boxes. All what gave the world a chance to see the true and sordid picture of the US administration, compromising not only Bush Jnr as president, but Obama as well.

Under this Obama regime, the second whistle blower is trying to avoid his extradition to the US, having a temporary stay in Moscow. Edward Snowden cracked open another sinister project by the US National Security Agency that had been eavesdropping into phone conversations of its own friendly heads of States. This president who said he is in a global struggle to stop intimidation, torture and murder of people for exercising the most basic freedoms and wants to win this struggle and spread those freedoms, has two people fighting for their freedom, they seriously fear, will be burnt out by the US under President Obama.

This world with Obama as US President, who promised a “change” and a change for a global order without war, without threats to freedom and liberty, is not much different to the Jnr Bush  era that was castigated and condemned by all sane and decent people for invading Iraq on false accusations over weapons of mass destruction. With Obama in the same chair as president, we have two persons who are being hunted for telling the world how cruel and uncivilised the US regime is. Given a presidential order to fly anywhere over Afghanistan and even trespass Pakistani air, we have US drone attacks killing innocent Afghan civilians who wouldn’t know where Washington DC is and who Barrack Obama is. We have a US administration that knows no decency and taps into any one’s phone conversation. Even its own closest ally. No different to Bush and oil in Iraq, we have an Obama administration that funded a rebellion to oust Libyan leader Gadaffi and left Libya in total anarchy for its citizens to live with and for the US to have control over petroleum in there. Obama’s US has no shame in hugging a military regime that in Egypt threw out the democratically elected president and is killing Egyptian citizens to stay in power.

In their quest for brute power to control world resources, the US political regime has made many enemies despite its democratic social structures. This US democracy can not control its elusive, octopus like administrative power, even their elected President has to abide by. Obama thus plays out his captivity as US president with finesse and rehearsed rhetoric. The US live in fear.

Talking to Al Jazeera recently, the most unassuming of all Heads of States on this planet earth, Uruguayan President Jose Mujica said the Americans are afraid of the world, having made too many enemies. Yes, they tap into phones of other heads of States for fear of their own political status, despite all the hitech, sophisticated and weird security and intelligence systems available to them at unbelievably exorbitant costs. Neurotic as they are, the US have come to be the world’s most intolerable public nuisance under president Obama, who promised a change. But, even without a change, he is a Nobel peace laureate !

    Well said Kusal. If Julian Assange would be a Sri Lankan what would the US government do? Remember that story about how certain countries arranged a ship for the LTTE leadership during the last stages of the war…tjkk…tjkkk…

    For once I agree with Kusal.

    Obama has killed more Muslims than any other non-Muslim in history. Far worse than Bush.

    Afghanistan
    Pakistan
    Yemen
    Libya
    Egypt
    Syria

    Every American president wants to kill MORE Muslims that his predecessor. That’s the way to win votes at home.

      From the John Snow/Wm Hague interview yesterday you must have learnt a surprising lesson, that Gaddafi had atomic weapons and hence the necessity to kill him. Another of the Ch 4 ‘truths’.
      There are countries that REALLY do have atomic weapons, yet John Snow has not suggested that those leaders need to be eliminated.

    Obama is a big dissapointment to Blacks and minorities all over the world.

    I agree with your comment,,,”Nine months later he became a Nobel Peace prize laureate, just for his rhetoric and nothing else”

    Someone recently said “you give Obama a crisis he will make a geat oratory about it”

      Obama’s inauguration speech gave much hope to the poor and oppressed of the world,but in the next speech he made to the Israeli lobby he genuflected on the rights of the Palestinians, and from there on he was on a slippery slope, and now he is caught in a cobweb of deceit and manipulation by the American armament industry.The system is configured that way and that is why Julian Assange’s comment is appropriate.

    Obama had taken the war on terror onto a war run by drones and intelligence. He managed to eliminate most of Al-Qaeda leadership with drone strikes.
    He is no longer sending American armies as Bush did.

    Obama was on bad spot after it was revealed of the intelligence work wire tapping of other leaders. All countries have intelligence units and they were doing these activities over decades. Only difference this is exposed badly.

    Every country, even Sri Lanka is monitoring calls, internet transactions for intelligence and security purpose. These are made legal within countries with legal framework.

    So it is not the sky is falling down.

    A well known fact, Obomber is a certified stooge of the Zionists and their allies House of Pseudo in Arabia. The sheeple may be ignorant and blind to keep electing the same policies in different parties. Democracy and democratic values Suck.

      Spot on Maghribi..

      @Sumith, Please investigate a bit about the world.. forget Obama, he is just puppet..

      No One is going to look after you… Everyone needs to be informed and protect themselves.. What is Al-Queda?? Is it that man that hides in a cave and bring 747s to US to drop buildings? This man in the cave finally got popped by the marines, ohh but we can’t show the footage.. that’s because this joker died ten years ago.. Open your eyes Sumith…

      The building came down as controlled demolitions.. Not even an hour after the crashes, these arab muslim “terrorist” passports have felled down from the planes.. to me it looks like a pretty big blast, how did passports survive?? Don’t ask those questions you silly people!!! We will tell you the truth on TV…… LOL

      Who really knows anyway.. But mate, open your eyes.. The real terrorist is Obamas handlers.. Can never blame Obama because he is just a front man.. Once you understand that you will understand what is going on.
