Is Obama Keeping or Breaking His “Promises” As President When He Continues to Engage In Wars?

The following debate originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “Cindy Sheehan Heads to Martha’s Vineyard to Confront Obama on the War“…

Rayn: Cindy Sheehan Heads to Martha’s Vineyard to Confront Obama on the War:
http://cindysheehanssoapbox.blogspot.com/2009/08/cindy-sheehan-heads-to-marthas-vineyard.html

While most Americans voted President Obama into the Whitehouse with the “hope” that he would effect real “change,” by putting an end to the previous administration’s falsely-premised, highly illegal wars of aggression & occupation in the Middle East, very few individuals have been willing to take him to task for his blatant failure to make any sort of true “progress.” Then, there’s peace activist, Cindy Sheehan. Unfazed by the “right” and “left” of American politics, she bodly chooses, rather, to focus on what is “right” vs. “wrong.” With the loss of her son, Casey, to the senseless war in Iraq, she honors his memory by making it her personal mission to end our Imperial Adventures overseas, period.

During the week of August 23-30, while Obama’s vacationing @ an expensive resort on Martha’s Vineyard, Cindy will join other activists in letting him know that there’s no relaxing when peole are still dying in our wars! She’s a courageous American, a real Humanitarian & a true patriot!

Kenny C.It is sick! How can the Commander in chief be on vacation at a resort while there is a full blown war going on with over hundred thousand brainwashed american soldiers killing innocent women and children in countries we have no business in.
INSTEAD OF VACATION, WORK ON YOUR PROMISE YOU MADE, END THE WAR AND PRESERVE THE CONSTITUTION!

RaynAs I have said before, Obama IS working on the promises he made, and all is going according to planned! Allow me to direct your attention to some of the comments he made when he was still just a candidate on the campaign trail, looking to secure American votes:

Speaking from Afghanistan in a July 20, 2008 interview on “Face the Nation,” Obama said, ”it’s time for us to withdraw some of our combat troops out of Iraq, and deploy them here in Afghanistan, and I think we have to seize that opportunity. Now’s the time for us to do it” (http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=4275914n). Translation: MORE WAR IN AFGHANISTAN!

Speaking on August 1, 2007 in an address to the Woodrow Wilson International Center in Washington, DC, Obama stated the same exact agenda, taking it a step further: “The first step must be getting off the wrong battlefield in Iraq, and taking the fight to the terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan” (http://www.stripes.com/article.asp?section=104&article=58663). Translation: MORE WAR IN AFGHANISTAN! NEW ILLEGAL WAR OF AGGRESSION AGAINST PAKISTAN!

According to Obama, “if we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf will not act, we will” (http://www.reuters.com/news/video?videoId=62500&newsChannel=domesticNews). Translation: NEW ILLEGAL COVERT WAR OF AGGRESSION AGAINST PAKISTAN!

Obama even went as far as saying, “we must not turn a blind eye to elections that are neither free nor fair – our goal is not simply an ally in Pakistan; it is a democratic ally” (read transcript of entire speech here: http://www.barackobama.com/2007/08/01/the_war_we_need_to_win.php) Translation: REGIME CHANGE AND NATION-BUILDING IN PAKISTAN!

In August of 2007, in an article entitled “Renewing America’s Leadership,” published in the Council on Foreign Relations’ (CFR) “Foreign Affairs” Magazine, Obama wrote, “I will not hesitate to use force, unilaterally if necessary, to protect the American people or our vital interests whenever we are attacked or imminently threatened. We must also consider using military force in circumstances beyond self-defense in order to provide for the common security that underpins global stability — to support friends, participate in stability and reconstruction operations, or confront mass atrocities” (read transcript of entire speech here: http://www.globalpolicy.org/component/content/article/153/26336.html). Translation: NEW UNPROVOKED, ILLEGAL WARS OF AGGRESSION AGAINST MIDDLE-EASTERN SOVEREIGN NATIONS!

In this same article, Obama also claimed that “we must develop a strong international coalition to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons and eliminate North Korea’s nuclear weapons program. Iran and North Korea could trigger regional arms races, creating dangerous nuclear flashpoints in the Middle East and East Asia. In confronting these threats, I will not take the military option off the table. But our first measure must be sustained, direct, and aggressive diplomacy — the kind that the Bush administration has been unable and unwilling to use.” Translation: NEW ILLEGAL WAR OF AGGRESSION AGAINST NORTH KOREA! NEW ILLEGAL WAR OF AGGRESSION AGAINST IRAN!

See what I mean? Obama was always just another Bush, hell-bend on expanding America’s wars in the Middle East. I tried to warn as many people as I could not to vote for this warmongering pig, but only a select few took the time to review my research!

But, you know what? It’s never to late to turn this slimeball into the LAME DUCK he should be! We can prevent his re-election if we spread the truth around, and let people know that they were fooled by this FALSE PEACE CANDIDATE! (Click Here to Continue Reading This Post)

Ford Ordered Disasterous Nationwide Swine-Flu Vaccinations Program in 1976

March 24, 1976: Ford Orders Swine-Flu Shots for All:

(updated link: http://archive.wired.com/science/discoveries/news/2008/03/dayintech_0324)

(Tony LongWired.com) – 1976: President Gerald Ford orders a nationwide vaccination program to prevent a swine-flu epidemic. Ford was acting on the advice of medical experts, who believed they were dealing with a virus potentially as deadly as the one that caused the 1918 Spanish influenza pandemic. The virus surfaced in February at Fort Dix, New Jersey, where 19-year-old Pvt. David Lewis told his drill instructor that he felt tired and weak, although not sick enough to skip a training hike. Lewis was dead with 24 hours. […] Mass vaccinations started in October, but within weeks reports started coming in of people developing Guillain-Barré syndrome, a paralyzing nerve disease, right after taking the shot. Within two months, 500 people were affected, and more than 30 died. Amid a rising uproar and growing public reluctance to risk the shot, federal officials abruptly canceled the program Dec. 16. (Read entire article here…)

My Commentary: America suffered from a previous outbreak of swine-flu in 1976. Interestingly, this particular outbreak began at an Army base in Fort Dix, New Jersey. The background is as follows: after a recruit died mysteriously, an autopsy was performed, & it was determined that swine-flu had caused his death. Testing began & army doctors soon realized that at least 500 soldiers were also infected, though none were ill. Under pressure from health officials, who saw a possible pandemic on their hands, then-President Gerald Ford spent $125 million funding a mass inoculation program – aimed at protecting the American public. However, within weeks, some who took the shot began to develop “Guillain-Barré syndrome, a paralyzing nerve disease. Within two months, 500 individuals were affected, and more than 30 died.” The public responded angrily, and the program was stopped.

The moral of the story: while swine-flu claimed only one victim, the vaccine claimed over 30 lives, & crippled nearly 500 individuals!!

New Interrogation Details Emerge as Administration Releases Justice Department Memos:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/04/16/AR2009041602768.html

(Carrie Johnson, Julie Tate – Washington Post) Justice Department documents released yesterday offer the fullest account to date of Bush administration interrogation tactics, including previously unacknowledged strategies of slamming a prisoner into a wall and placing an insect near a detainee terrified of bugs.

Authorities said they will not prosecute CIA officers who used harsh interrogation techniques with the department’s legal blessing. But in a carefully worded statement, they left open the possibility that operatives and higher-level administration officials could face jeopardy if they ventured beyond the boundaries drawn by the Bush lawyers.

My Commentary: I am absolutely DISGUSTED by Obama’s proclamation that “YES, WE CAN” protect TORTURERS from criminal PROSECUTION! Regardless of his apologist claims, to put war criminals on trial for the horrors they have engaged in has NOTHING to do with “RETRIBUTION” and EVERYTHING to do with JUSTICE!!! “Nothing will be gained by spending our time and energy laying blame for the past,” Obama claims? How about the fact that it would help put an end to the egregious human rights abuses that are STILL CURRENTLY BEING COMMITTED by the American government as a matter POLICY in the name of the “War on Terrorism,” with full “legal” authorization!?
