There is no doubt that US President Barak Obama is a war criminal as are his military and intelligence officials and most of the House and Senate.

Obama is the first president to keep the US at war for the entirety of his eight-year regime. During 2016 alone the US dropped 26,171 bombs on wedding parties, funerals, kid’s soccer games, hospitals, schools, people in their homes and walking their streets, and farmers tilling their fields in seven countries: Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan. http://blogs.cfr.org/zenko/2017/01/05/bombs-dropped-in-2016/

What does the administration have to show for eight years of illegal military interventions in seven countries, none of which comprised a danger to the US and against none of which the US has declared war? Terrorism was created by US invasions, no wars have been won, and the Middle East has been consumed in chaos and destruction. Worldwide hatred of the United States has risen to a record high. The US is now the most despised country on earth.

The only purposes of these crimes is to enrich the armaments industry and to advance the insane neoconservative ideology of US world hegemony. A tiny handful of despicable people have been able to destroy the reputation of the United States and murder millions of peoples, sending waves of war refugees to the US and Europe.

We call these “wars,” but they are not. They are invasions, largely from the air, but in Afghanistan and Iraq from troops on the ground. The invasions by air and land are entirely based on blatant, transparent lies. The “justifications” for the invasions have changed a dozen times.

The questions are: If Trump becomes president, will Washington’s massive crimes against humanity continue? If so, will the rest of the world continue to tolerate Washington’s extraordinary evil?

    Since Obama was so big on slogans, I have one that nicely captures the essence of his presidency: “The audacity of mendacity”. No seriously, I think it’s obvious that the US presidency is a collective effort, the president is only a focal point of efforts of large group of people who try to create a coherent (in US case this is optional) policy.

    The US presidency is like a large airplane that can fly on autopilot, which comes handy when the pilot is clueless like in the case of G.W. Bush or even Obama to some extent. The president’s input varies based on his ability and popularity in the team. I think that Obama was corralled by the programmers who wrote the code that was flying the plane – some like to call them deep state, some call them neocons – whatever. Obama input was probably minimal, they only let him make few announcements to the passengers about the conditions of the flight and other than that he might as well had a nap in the pilot’s seat.

    The reason why the establishment is so afraid of Donald is because it looks like he is going to attempt to wrestle the controls of the plane from the autopilot and they think that he is going to crash it. I think that the deep state is more comfortable with some dummy sitting in the captain seat, than with someone who might show too much initiative.

  2. Okay so you voted for BO and HRC, and now you are in need of therapy and a safe space in which you can occupy yourself with your coloring books.
    So what are you really trying to say with this prime example of incoherent blather.

    Most Americans prefer to tune all this out and care little about any of that. It’s all far away and the people getting killed aren’t really human anyway so few Americans are going to let themselves be perturbed by all this. Out of sight out of mind. The brain-dead zombies packed the house for his farewell speech and cheered endlessly. What’s really important to them is the gay pride parade.

    Correct. You might have added that 90% of those Americans who do care about the carnage actually approve it.

    The top Hollywood propagandists pushing this? “Humanitarian” George Clooney and his “human rights” wife Amal. Google “George Clooney Enemy of Democracy” I wish a ‘valid” news source would out these two.
