Think This Is Going To Change?

For some time now, I've been warning of the dangers that I see with a Barack Obama presidency.

Some people have decided to take umbrage with my comments, while others (just as slimy as the Obama Death Squads) have decided that I'm right and that I'm Right-Wing, hell, even Clan-like. The latter has been addressed elsewhere, with the offending jackass being put straight about my feelings on Obama.

Today, I ask Obama fans, sycophants and worshippers alike to answer the following question:

Do you really think that Barack Obama, as president, will be able to change anything about the genocide, the holocaust of the Palestinians by the Israelis?

If your answer is an emphatic NO, then you've come to your senses or you always kept them about you.

If your answer is NO with the caveat that no one could really ever do anything to change the situation, then you're covering up for not just Obama but Bush, Clinton and all the rest that have "tried" in the past.

If your answer is YES, then you're simply deluding yourself.

As proof, I offer the following from last year, a July/August 2007 Foreign Affairs piece written by the man himself.

Obama wrote:

"This century's threats are at least as dangerous as and in some ways more complex than those we have confronted in the past. They come from weapons that can kill on a mass scale and from global terrorists who respond to alienation or perceived injustice with murderous nihilism."

He continues with:

"For more than three decades, Israelis, Palestinians, Arab leaders, and the rest of the world have looked to America to lead the effort to build the road to a lasting peace. In recent years, they have all too often looked in vain. Our starting point must always be a clear and strong commitment to the security of Israel, our strongest ally in the region and its only established democracy. That commitment is all the more important as we contend with growing threats in the region -- a strengthened Iran, a chaotic Iraq, the resurgence of Al Qaeda, the reinvigoration of Hamas and Hezbollah. Now more than ever, we must strive to secure a lasting settlement of the conflict with two states living side by side in peace and security. To do so, we must help the Israelis identify and strengthen those partners who are truly committed to peace, while isolating those who seek conflict and instability. Sustained American leadership for peace and security will require patient effort and the personal commitment of the president of the United States. That is a commitment I will make."

So I trust Senator Obama was on the phone with the Israelis Friday after Israel's Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilnai told Israeli Army Radio:

"The more Qassam fire intensifies and the rockets reach a longer range, they [the Palestinians] will bring upon themselves a bigger holocaust because we will use all our might to defend ourselves."

I trust that Senator Obama asked the Israelis, Ehud Olmert or someone within the propped-up government over there, to can Matan Vilnai's ass.

I also trust that pigs can fly and that the sun sets in the east.

Those that have read the Council On Foreign Relations piece by Obama don't have to scratch their heads and try and figure out how it is a guy that claims to be for peace can write something like that. They know that he's the very same person that Hillary Clinton is or that John McCain is and that he'll be the same president that Bill Clinton was and George W. Bush is.

Either I'm going to be preaching to the choir with this comment or it's going to splatter against a brick wall like so many eggs.

There is no change coming. And those that have to resort to, how did Obama put it, "murderous nihilism" due to, what was that again, "perceived injustice" will continue to suffer with this so-called, wish-he-was-but-never-will-be savior in office. Just like it always was.

Good luck to us all.
