‘Dear leader’

By
From page A5 | September 06, 2013 |

EDITOR:

The 12th anniversary of 9/11 is coming up next week and I see our Nobel Peace Prize winner is planning on getting this country into yet another war. He says he intends to consult with Congress before attacking Syria — which means he will bribe and threaten them into compliance.

Or maybe he’ll arrange for some of them to have an unfortunate accident to serve as a reminder of what happens when you disagree with the thug in the White House — I mean “dear leader.”

I was counting on “dear leader” to simply ignore Congress just like he ignores the Constitution, rule of law, public opinion, etc. After all, “dear leader” knows what’s best and anyone who says differently is a racist and a terrorist and should be droned or given a show trial courtesy of the (sic) Justice Department.

Or maybe he’ll take the short route and let the CIA, along with the Israelis, carry out another false flag to justify going to war much in the same way 9/11 was engineered. It seems that Americans are so gullible that they’ll believe anything that issues from the government or their mouthpieces in the mainstream media.

How many countries have we attacked so far under the banner of fighting this phony “war on terror” or is it “a war to terrorize?” It’s hard to tell the difference.

So far there’s been Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, and now we’re eying Syria while also chomping at the bit to destroy Iran. Since when is it any of our business to overthrow another country’s leaders? Why should American money and lives be spent fighting other people’s conflicts? Is this in our interest or in the territorial ambitions of Israel?

“Dear leader” claims he only wants to spread democracy. You know, phony elections, crony capitalism, gutted economy, Nazis in Homeland Security, spooks at the NSA and an economy where almost 50 million people are on food stamps. Gee aren’t you glad we’re exporting our form of government to the rest of the world?

I guess the question is do we plan to occupy the entire planet or destroy it? I don’t think it matters much to the sociopaths in Washington, D.C. and their prostitutes in the mainstream media. They want an empire and “dear leader” has been put there to ensure it happens, one country at a time.

People around the world use to admire America. Now we’re just a country to be pitied.
