President Barack Obama has ducked out of the country at a convenient time to avoid the madness unleashed among the domestic authoritarian fascist demographic over the trade of five Taliban members from Gitmo for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. While the growing lynch mob that is being fully encouraged and abetted by Republican political operatives to maximize election year turnout resembling something that one would expect in 1933 Germany Mr. Obama is slinking around in Eastern Europe as America's top weapons salesman in using the trumped up Putin is rebuilding the Soviet Empire hoax to sell missile systems and other arms.
Fiction mirrors life as at the end of the movie "Lord of War" the Nicholas Cage character Yuri Orlov, a global arms trader in a pivotal conversation after he has finally been captured by the intrepid agent Jack Valentine (Ethan Hawke) reveals that he will ultimately be released because: "the biggest arms dealer in the world is your boss - the President of the United States, who ships more merchandise in a day than I do in a year - sometimes it's embarrassing to have his fingerprints on the guns.Sometimes he needs a freelancer like me to supply forces he can't be seen supplying". But he can sure as hell make the sales pitches and speeches, only instead of at weapons bazaars he makes them from foreign palaces and government locations as well as historically significant sites - usually linked to some past conflict for maximum effect. One has to wonder whether Obama will show up at the D-Day anniversary ceremony in Normandy with the patches of US arms manufacturers sewn onto his silk suit.
But the warlord in chief was in fine form this week as he laid out the bullshit and demagoguery necessary to start a new cold war with Russia that would represent a windfall for Murder Incorporated with the entirety of NATO spending billions on missile systems and other garbage instead on anything that even remotely benefits their people. While in Poland, Obama promised a sweetener of $1 billion in loot stolen from the American taxpayers that could be better used to rebuild our own crumbling country to the new foreign war effort. I excerpt the following from The Guardian article "Obama pledges $1bn to boost military in Europe in wake of Ukraine crisis":
Barack Obama has pledged a billion-dollar military programme of reinforcements in Europe to assuage east European alarm at the Kremlin's expansionist ambitions following the Ukraine crisis.
Arriving in Warsaw to mark 25 years since the first semi-free elections in the communist bloc produced eastern Europe's first non-communist prime minister, the US president pronounced the security of Poland and the three Baltic states, all Nato and EU members, sacrosanct.
Kicking off a week of intensive diplomacy in Europe focused on western responses to Vladimir Putin and Ukraine, Obama announced that he was seeking congressional backing for a billion-dollar fund to rotate more US troops in and out of Poland, to strengthen air patrols over the Baltic, and to beef up naval operations in the Black Sea off the Russian and Ukrainian coasts.
Obama then went to Brussels which in the post-war era has replaced Berlin as the epicenter of the global conquest machine to meet with the phony G7 (which doesn't include major economic powers China and Russia) to engage in more bombastic and bullshit filled rhetoric directed at Putin. El Presidente sounded just like one of those World War II Axis leaders as he delivered an epic teleprompter recital that defies reality to the extent that perhaps the job has driven Barack bonkers. I excerpt from The Guardian article "Obama and Merkel warn of tougher sanctions against Russia over Ukraine":
While Ukraine dominated Wednesday evening's Brussels dinner, it is also certain to loom large over events in France on Friday marking the 70th anniversary of the D-day landings. Putin is to attend and may have his first meeting with Obama since the Ukraine conflict turned violent in February.
In Warsaw Obama accused the Kremlin of resorting to the "dark tactics" of the last century in Ukraine, and pledged to resist Russian aggression in eastern Europe.
"The days of empire and spheres of influence are over," he said at the royal palace in Warsaw.
"Bigger nations must not be allowed to bully the small, or impose their will at the barrel of a gun or with masked men taking over buildings.
"Further Russian provocations will only mean more isolation and costs for Russia. After investing so much blood and treasure to bring Europe together, how can we allow the dark tactics of the 20th century to define this new century?"
Obama invoked the anniversaries this week of the D-day landings in France in 1944 and the communist bloc's first partly free elections in Poland in 1989 as key events in the fight to free Europe from tyranny.
He said: "We've been reminded by Russia's aggression in Ukraine, our free nations cannot be complacent in pursuit of the vision we share – a Europe that is whole and free and at peace. We have to work for that."
The US leader sought to allay fears that the west was reluctant to commit to eastern Europe's security. "As allies, we have a solemn duty to defend your territorial integrity. And we will," he told the Poles.
"We stand together, now and forever, for your freedom is ours. Poland will never stand alone. But not just Poland – Estonia will never stand alone. Latvia will never stand alone. Lithuania will never stand alone. Romania will never stand alone."
In Berlin Merkel, who is to meet Putin in France on Friday, demanded that the Russian leader act forcefully to prevent violence in eastern Ukraine, and to close the borders to arms and paramilitaries entering Ukraine from Russia.
"If this does not stop, we won't flinch from imposing more sanctions," she told the German parliament.
How on God's green Earth can such lunacy be countered? Especially in a nation like The Homeland that is filled with cowards, brainwashed dolts and heavily armed angry mobs all plugged into a Matrix style alternate reality delivered 24/7 via the electronic crackpipe?
His latest blistering diatribe against Putin a man against whom his narcissistic personal vendetta knows no end and Obama is prepared to risk the death of millions to prove that his dick is bigger than his political foe accused Russia of "dark tactics" in Ukraine. He either fails to realize that pumping billions of US taxpayer money into a destabilization campaign that led to a coup against the democratically elected leader in Kiev, and assisted by neo-Nazis who are now on a US sanctioned killing spree are exactly that - "dark tactics" or he is so isolated, clueless and otherwise totally incompetent that he should be removed from office immediately.
Sad that I still have conversations with liberals and Democrats who believe that the man walks on water and is some sort of chess master who despite the dismal record of the last five years is just waiting to spring his grand move. Every despotic society needs it's useful idiots though and US liberals along with the foaming at the mouth right-wingers shrieking for the blood of Bowe Bergdahl to assuage their loss of the latest two wars of US aggression only serve the dark forces that have wrapped a garotte around the neck of Lady Liberty and are applying the final hard twist.
