In 2016, War Hawk, Obama, Beats His Previous Bombing Record

Swan Song from a “Reluctant” Hawk:

(Gene Healy) President Obama will deliver his Farewell Address tonight to a capacity crowd in Chicago’s McCormick Place convention center. It’s the right venue for the speech, the president explained last week, because Chicago is “where my career in public service began.”

Indeed, it’s the city where, as a young state senator in 2002, Obama gave an antiwar rally speech railing against the “dumb,” “rash” rush to war in Iraq; and where, as a presidential candidate five years later, he promised to “turn the page on the imperial presidency” and usher in “a new dawn of peace.” And yet, 2008’s “peace candidate” will leave office as the first two-term president in American history to have been at war every day of his presidency, having dropped over 25,000 bombs on seven countries in 2016 alone.

My Commentary: Or, as his supporters say, “no scandals for eight years.” Pffttt! You can’t make this stuff up!

Perhaps, the war hawk should be awarded another Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts?

Oh, and Obama also prosecuted more whistle-blowers than all previous presidents, combined. Or, as he would call it, “the most transparent administration in history.”

Statists gonna State! Try voting harder, next time, voting cattle! That’ll *really* show the government who’s in charge!

After Attacking Yemen’s Houthis, US Admits They Don’t Know Who Fired Missiles:
http://ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/peace-and-prosperity/2016/october/14/after-attacking-yemen-s-houthis-us-admits-they-don-t-know-who-fired-missiles/

(Jason Ditz) Yesterday, the United States attacked and destroyed a series of radar stations belonging to the Shi’ite Houthis in Yemen, along the Red Sea coast. This was described as retaliation for the missiles fired sort of near a US destroyer off shore, and presented as preventing future such strikes.

Yet today, Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook admitted that the US still hasn’t actually made any determination who fired those missiles in the first place. It is unclear why they retaliated against the Houthis, who denied involvement, apart from Cook saying that the US believes Iran has “been supportive of the Houthi rebels.”

As I’ve said before, the “Occupy Rectum” movement is definitely a most enduring one! It’s hard to believe that it is STILL going strong, after all these centuries! It’s all good, though. I’ll just continue to maintain my position: standing upright, facing the horizon, secure in the knowledge that the ASS is no place for the HEAD to be!

America’s War of Aggression Against Yemen Escalates from Years of Covert Drone Bombings to Navy Warship Bombings

US Enters Yemen War, Bombing Houthis Who Launched Missiles at Navy Ship:
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/oct/13/us-enters-yemen-war-bombing-houthis-who-launched-missiles-at-navy-ship

The United States has launched its first strike on Houthi-controlled territory in Yemen in retaliation for days of attacks on a navy warship, becoming an active combatant in a brutal war led by Washington’s ally Saudi Arabia.

The Pentagon announced late on Wednesday that it struck and destroyed three radar sites controlled by the Iranian-backed Houthi movement in Yemen. The sites were described as being involved in two missile attacks over the past four days on the destroyer USS Mason, operating out of the Bab al-Mandeb waterway between Yemen and east Africa.

There was no immediate word on any casualties from the US attack on the radar sites, which the Pentagon noted came with the direct authorization of Barack Obama.

My Commentary: Hmmm… The American government’s been drone bombing Yemen for years, with very little mention about it among the public, and the media, alike (even though we’re all forced to fund it with the tax dollars they extort from us)… And, most sadly and disgustingly, these murderous criminals are now escalating their war of aggression against this sovereign nation, even more… I’m so sick of this completely immoral devilry… Does *anyone* else feel the same? Or, is the lure of being a complacent, comfortably apathetic voting slob just too great to resist for most of y’all?

Post-9/11 Wars Have Cost Nearly $5 Trillion (and Counting): Report:
http://www.commondreams.org/news/2016/09/13/post-911-wars-have-cost-nearly-5-trillion-and-counting-report

(Nadia Prupis) The U.S. military interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan have cost taxpayers nearly $5 trillion and counting, according to a new report released to coincide with the 15th anniversary of the attacks.

Dr. Neta Crawford, professor of political science at Brown University, released the figures in an independent analysis (pdf) of U.S. Departments of Defense, State, Homeland Security, and Veteran Affairs spending, as well as their base and projected future spending. Crawford is also a director at Brown’s Costs of War Project, which works to draw attention to the human, economic, and political toll of the military response to 9/11.

In total, the wars already boast a price tag of $4.79 trillion, she found. And the cost is still climbing.

My Commentary: Keep paying your “fair share” of extorted income to finance the war machine. Those poor Iraqis, Afghanis, Pakistanis, Yemenis, Somalis, Libyan, and Syrians must be liberated from the constraints of corporeality.
