Barack Obama, our next President

At last you finally read the letter and NOW you cannot say that ONE of their reasons for leaving was not Obamacare.
Your editorializing the fact that they spent two paragraphs addressing their dissatisfaction with Obamacare and immigration reform at the end of the letter-shows a weak attempt to maintain a stance you already loss.
My point was the headline was misleading. Breitbart style.

Tell us about when Bush joined Al Qaeda and helped them take over a country, dupe.
Obama is promoting the US join the terrorists in a war to take over a country and put them in control of the chemical weapons there.
Where is the above statement inaccurate.
Bush joined Iran to help dump Sadam. Does that count?

If the rebels win, you are telling us Al Qaeda will run Syria?

Really.

Is Al Qaeda running Libya?

Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing Shares $3.25 Million Bonus With Employees

For the second consecutive year, Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing plans to give away at least $3 million of his bonus to roughly 10,000 of his company's workers, Bloomberg News reports. Employees across 20 countries will take part in Yuanqing's wealth with 85 percent of payout recipients working in China.

The average payout per worker of $325 is nearly equivalent to a month’s pay for an employee in China.

Luckily, Yuanqing is not alone in sharing his company's success with every employee. Lord Wolfson, CEO of the U.K. retailer Next, gave away his entire annual bonus of $3.6 million to his employees in April. Similarly last year, tech CEO Markus 'Notch' Persson decided to give away an extra $3 million to his employees.

Only an amateur who has no idea of how the real works would have made such a statement. That statement immediately painted the US into a corner, and an idiot could have predicted a trap would be set for us to blunder into just to preserve an image in the world.

The real world pays no attention to image. The real world responds to substance.
The substance of the matter is Obama is promoting the US Armed Forces help Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood take over a country and acquire chemical weapons.

The most likely outcome of Obama joining Al Qaeda in the war in Syria is the world will be divided into two categories:
Wahhabist terrorists and the United States;
and everyone else in the world.

Congress will not allow Obama to join the Suni - Shi'ite war in Syria and help Al Qaeda acquire chemical weapons and a country to use as a base for international terrorism.

What will Obama do then?
Will Obama obey the Constitution? Or, will Obama obey the Muslim Brotherhood?
No Surprize

The Middle East is a pivotal region for the whole world—economically and geopolitically—and the U.S. has dominated it since WW2. Everything it has done and continues to do is based on maintaining and deepening that domination. Right now the region is in tremendous upheaval—the old arrangements that “held things together”(for the imperialists and local butchers) have come under increasing strain and in some cases begun to disintegrate, and there is a massive scramble by all kinds of forces. These include rivals like the Russians, who back Assad; “friendly” imperialists like the French, who back the rebels; all kinds of local butchers; etc. And, painfully, there is no coherent progressive force acting within this mix.

This is a bloodletting which at this point is driven by a reactionary scramble for influence. In this, it seems increasingly apparent that the U.S. calculation is that they MUST project force in this situation lest they lose credibility. At the same time, there are indications that the U.S., or some within the ruling class, is arguing that, as one ruling class analyst, Edward N. Luttwak put it,“In Syria, America loses if either side wins.” Luttwak wrote:

“Indeed, it would be disastrous if President Bashar al-Assad’s regime were to emerge victorious after fully suppressing the rebellion and restoring its control over the entire country. Iranian money, weapons and operatives and Hezbollah troops have become key factors in the fighting, and Mr. Assad’s triumph would dramatically affirm the power and prestige of Shiite Iran and Hezbollah, its Lebanon-based proxy—posing a direct threat both to the Sunni Arab states and to Israel.

“But a rebel victory would also be extremely dangerous for the United States and for many of its allies in Europe and the Middle East. That’s because extremist groups, some identified with Al Qaeda, have become the most effective fighting force in Syria. If those rebel groups manage to win, they would almost certainly try to form a government hostile to the United States. Moreover, Israel could not expect tranquility on its northern border if the jihadis were to triumph in Syria.”(New York Times August 23, 2013).

In this situation, the U.S. may be pulling a page from the bloody playbook it used in the Iran-Iraq War. In that war, the U.S. aimed for both sides to devastate each other, and the result was a million deaths.

The only two entities in the entire world that support Obama's intent to help Al Qaeda and the Musliim Brotherhood take over Syria are Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.

No other country in the world agrees with Obama.

The United States is more isolated in the world than has ever been the case in the history of this country.

Congress will not allow Obama to use what he refers to as "my military" to help Al Qaeda take over Syria and get chemical weapons.

What do you think Obama will do? The Muslim Brotherhood will order Obama to join the war, anyway.
Will Obama obey the Constitution, or will Obama obey the Muslim Brotherhood?
Obama will obey the Muslim Brotherhood!!!

See? If Congress attempts to impeach him for illegally declaring war against Congress will, the Liberal Media will claim racism!!!

Liberals will claim that White Republican males want to impeach him only because he is black.

At the same time, Obama will show his hatred toward the Constitution.

Perhaps you need an education in what is happening in the world. Let's go over a short history.
Wahhabism is a medieval conservative sect of Islam with archaic tennants designed to control the world's population and allow only Wahhabism to be practiced that originated in the 17th century.
Wahhabism was relegated to the most ignorant cults and societies in the Arab world until the petro dollars began to flow into Saudi Arabia in the 1930s.
Since, Wahhabism has grown and is represented in all the Suni terrorist organizations, such as Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Wahhabism has grown to the extent where they started a world war and took control of the government of Egypt, and are prominently represented in the government of the United States to the point where federal judges include Wahhabist tennants in their rulings as if Wahhabism is part of the Constitution.
The Wahhabists were tossed out of the government of Egypt.
Today, there is only one country in the world that includes Wahhabist terrorist organizations in its policy departments. That country is the United States.
And, today, the Wahhabist terrorists are attempting to take control of Syria, which will give them chemical weapons.
Now that you are better educated on events in the world, you can respond to the post.
The goal of those who pull the strings on Obama is to have the Wahhabist terrorists take over the country of Syria.
After the Muslim Brotherhood was tossed out of the government of Egypt, they have no country they control. They desperately need a country to control.
Obama is a stooge for the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Muslim Brotherhood will order Obama to use what he refers to as "my military" to help Al Qaeda take over the country of Syria.
The biggest question is, how did the Islamist terrorists get control of the government of the United States?
How could that have happened?
Wahabbists are just members of a sect of Islam and not a terrorist group as you claim.

Perhaps you should quit calling ll Muslims terrorists.
Because one is Muslim, is married to a Muslim, friends with a Muslim, or spoke to a Muslim in the past 10 years does not make them a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

This anti - Islam stance you right whiners take is jus bigotry, and we know you people are rally good at being bigots.

Only Worse Suffering and Horrors Can Result from a U.S. Attack on Syria
Many people will see this as a situation in which “something must be done.” Even people who have some sense that the U.S. is driven by anything but humanitarian motives will argue that at least U.S. intervention will stop the horror right now.

But reality doesn’t work that way. It matters—in fact it is decisive—to understand the nature of a U.S. attack on Syria, and what would be driving it. It would be an attack driven by the needs of a global capitalist-imperialist superpower intent on maintaining its domination of the planet. How is any move on that basis going to contribute anything positive to a humanitarian nightmare in Syria?

A U.S. attack on Syria will push things in a worse direction. It will bring death and suffering in its own right. And it will further polarize the terms of things whereby the reactionary Assad regime can pose as standing up to imperialism, where Iran and the forces it influences may well respond, and where a whole range of reactionary forces, including Israel, might step up their involvement in the war in Syria, or launch other attacks elsewhere in the region. Any U.S. attack on Syria is bound to intensify the whole terrible spiral in the country and the region.

And the situation will be all the worse to the extent people buy into the logic of who cares what’s behind it, any intervention can’t be a bad thing right now. Here a painful but critical lesson can be drawn from recent events in Egypt: many people supported the army’s move against the Muslim Brotherhood due to the Brotherhood’s repression, without analyzing WHY the army was moving. Then, when the consequences of that support became clear, including the political freedom that this gave the army to carry out slaughters and try to nail down an even tighter version of Mubarak-ism, oppositional forces and the people in general found themselves either unable to act effectively or so far gone ideologically that they were now in the army’s pocket ideologically as well as politically.

The only way for something positive to emerge in Syria is for people to oppose both sides in this conflict—actively. And for people in the U.S., which has brought such great misery to the planet, the challenge is to oppose “our own” empire.

The U.S. has brought nothing but exploitation, environmental ruin, impoverishment, and oppression to the whole Middle East. Any military assault by the US on Syria, no matter the pretext, must be OPPOSED with determined political protest in the US. And to the extent that happens, it can contribute to creating a pathway breaking out of the whole terrible set of “choices” confronting the people of Syria and beyond and to bringing forward a whole other way—a real revolutionary alternative.

Obumbler had an opportunity when the revolt began to arm the moderate forces opposing Assad keeping the US at a distance. He dithered himself into a corner with the red line statement. Now that the radicals are involved the situation has become even worse and he looks impotent.

1.The US and its allies are supporting Al Nusrah, an Al Qaeda affiliated entity which is on the State department list of terrorist organizations. Al Nusrah is financed and trained by the US and its allies including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and Israel. Al Nusrah is the main fighting force of the so-called “opposition”.

2. Al Nusrah is responsible for countless killings of civilians and atrocities committed as part of a US sponsored intelligence operation. These atrocities have been documented. most of the Al Nusrah terrorists are foreign mercenaries.

3. Israel is also supporting the Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists out of the Golan Heights.

4. The US has unleashed Al Qaeda death squads inside Syria. The Obama administration is responsible for having ordered the killing of civilians, while placing the blame on the government of Bashar al Assad.

5. US, British, French Turkish, Qatari and Israeli Special Forces have integrated the opposition terror brigades in derogation of international law.

6. Confirmed by mainstream media reports, Turkish police reports and statements of UN observers, the rebels are in possession of chemical weapons; confirmed by CNN, the Pentagon has trained the Al Qaeda “revolutionaries” in the use of chemical weapons.

7. America’s Al Qaeda affiliated brigades have been defeated. The ground war in May was virtually over.

8. The US-NATO-Israel is now actively contemplating the next stage: an all out air campaign as well as “boots on the ground”. They have deployed a naval force in the Eastern Mediterranean.

9. They need a pretext to intervene on humanitarian ground. They are accusing the government of Bashar al Assad of using chemical weapons against the Syrian people, a nonsensical proposition.

10. Bear in mind that the same Western governments which are accusing the Bashar Al Assad government of killing its own people have been providing the “revolutionaries” with chemical weapons.

11. The crimes committed by al Nusrah were ordered by the Western military alliance. By supporting the terrorists, Western leaders are responsible for crimes against humanity. They have supported and financed Al Qaeda affiliated death squads.

11. President Obama is now saying that a retaliatory strike against Syria is “needed … to protect U.S. security,” a totally absurd and criminal proposition emanating from a Nobel Peace Laureate.

Does that means that each time Obama orders the drone killing of innocent civilians in a far away country that the international community should retaliate militarily against the United States of America.

Al Queda is running Libya, Egypt, and other countries.

Let me explain this to you:

The Muslim brotherhood is the POLITICAL face/arm of radical Islam.

Al Queda is the MILITARY face/arm.

CAIR is the political correctness face. Used to subjugate you as.shole.

MSA-Muslim Student Association is the RECRUITING arm/face.

ACLU is the suing legal face/arm.
