Obama Turns His Back

Obama is more concerned about "grand strategy" and "American interests" than in this...

As I think of Americans so busy trying to figure out their "strategic interests" and where they can leverage their billions in bribes to Middle Eastern thugs, I keep thinking of a saying by Jesus that it is easier for a rich man to go through the eye of a needle than to get into heaven. The rich and powerful are so busy looking after "their interests" that they never notice that the "little people" are in the trenches, living crippled lives, so that the rich and powerful can feast and strut about.

It is ironic. The bottom 90% of the population have only their bodies to put on the line in facing Mubarak's thugs. Mubarak can use the billions in blood money he got from America to buy the best, most cruel, most depraved thugs (his police!) to terrorize the streets of Egypt. This is what the "great leader" brings to his people when they turn their back on him and refuse to let him pass on his "presidency" to his son as a "patronage".

Obama must sleep happily tonight knowing that he has helped keep this monster in power.
