JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: TRUMP IS A COMPLETE FAILURE – BUT QUOTING OBAMA ON INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS IS ALMOST CRIMINAL   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT:

Read the letter Barack Obama left for Donald Trump at the White House
‘This is a unique office, without a clear blueprint for success’

I seriously dislike Trump, but quoting Obama on anything of this nature shows frightening blindness.

Obama killed at least half a million people in his various Mideast Wars, and he made millions homeless to become refugees, destabilizing Europe.

He ruined some good countries, setting back the economic lives of tens of millions for years to come.

Obama also created the large-scale American program of extrajudicial killing, perhaps the most immoral program ever undertaken by that country.

Obama approved the coup in Ukraine against a democratic government and effectively is responsible for all that has followed.

Obama sent troops and planes and ships to Europe to intimidate Russia and endanger all our lives.

Obama started highly aggressive naval behavior in the South China Sea.

Obama approved the ugly CIA programs that have badly hurt Venezuela and its elected government.

Obama in eight years never did a thing to improve the horrible conditions of the Palestinians.

This is a man to quote on anything concerning international affairs?

No, you have it very wrong.

We’ve gone from the superficial appearance of lucidity and sanity to the clear appearance of its absence.

Apart from all the noises in the press, I’m not sure we’ve gone anywhere.

Response to another reader who asked, why does BO get away with so much?

Exactly.

Truth is that he was a monster in power, maybe a little less than some others, but a monster nevertheless.

He kept his mouth shut and smiled and the press liked the smile, as they liked his baritone voice that in fact never said much of real importance.

His record is nothing less than eight years of bloodshed abroad and nothing accomplished for his own people at home.

It really all does show what a bizarre shadowy stage play we all are forced to live through by the press and our governments telling us what is so clearly bad is in fact good.
