In a new article titled "Obama say's he's not bluffing on Iran nukes", Barack Obama has -- quite eloquently -- evoked a rather effusive erudition of alleged personal accomplishments that he claims -- however audaciously -- have helped to secure this nation.
However, as usual, he deceptively ignored the fact that nearly all of the policies and actions he listed have further embroiled the nations of the Middle East, and sent shockwaves of violent, government oppression crashing across the region.
To digress for a moment. Let's be perfectly clear, and operate on a plane of reality that finds the conversation evolving in truth. That truth being: for an American president to engage in actions which promote excessive military intervention, or seek pre-emptive armed attacks as a means of accomplishing any of his stated initiatives is a failure.
The United States Military is not Barack Obama's personal gang of thugs. Nor is it a redundant or default mechanism conscripted to force his policies into effect anywhere in the world, regardless of whether he believes his directives to be rightly motivated or reasonable.
Not only does Obama refuse to admit that he hasn't the slightest idea how to actually accomplish an environment of civility and sectarian accord in the Middle East. He insists on bumbling along with his tepid displays of tenacity and tact at break-neck speed.
For Pete's sake. Obama could not even find the language to truly address the nature of the contoversy surrounding the United State Military's insensitive burning of a revered, and generally accepted, book of holy inscriptions. Offering nothing more than an apology for an action that inflamed an entire religious demographic.
Furthermore, he attempted to deflect accountabilty by, in many respects, moving to trivialize the angst of those offended. Parroting the same ridiculous excuse that the texts were being used by prisoners to pass secret, extremist communications among other detainees. An accusation that can never be effectively corroborated or challenged due to the evidence having been torched out of existence.
His lack of informed representation thus caused even more outcries. Prompting Arab religious leaders to demand that the abuses which led to the burning of their Quran, be redressed, and criminal implications of long-standing improprieties be expose for their cultivation of dispassionate disregard for their beliefs and human rights which occurred in Bahgraib and other sites of human detention.
Obama's utter lack of intellectual ability is papable. And his introspective outlook is about as peaceful as a five-year-old with a hand grenade.
Now, Obama appears to have completely cowed to Benjamin Netanyahu, and elected to take an even more dismal stance on how Iran's nuclear program affects both the region they inhabit, and the United States' national security.
As if a nuclear Iran is any more tedious a proposition than is a nuclear North Korea. Or a nuclear Israel and United States for that matter.
It is truly remarkable how Obama consistently dons the hypocritical suits of sanctimonious sophistry in an attempt to cloak his preference for naked aggression.
Now Obama has ridiculously claimed -- in a recent article appearing on the CNN website (evoking my wrath once again. However, not meaning to be picking on CNN alone) -- that he "is not bluffing on Iran nukes"
Oh, really? So, just when did this new course of action actually begin for the president?
Was it when he brought the nations of Israel and Iran together in alacritous agreement on a scale that cultivated admirable collaboration with Syria, Lybia, Egypt, Tunisia and the likes, inspiring the entire region to lay down its collective angst in search of a commonly redeeming accord...for the sake of the many innocent men, women and children collaterally cremated and diplaced, if nothing else?
Or was it when he availed himself of a qualitative intuition required of any leader of peoples, and amazed the international community with insights and analyses that raised the level of conscientious cognizance among the boundaries of discord. Championing an atmosphere of freely formulated ideas and ideologies that can exist on common principles, and thus found methods of conflict which respect the aspirations and admonitions of all the parties involved?
Or. maybe it was when he negotiated a cessation of the oppressive and genocidal violence in Tunisia, Egypt, Lybia, Syria, and other countries where the citizens are being murdered by criminal regimes and corrupt political parties.
No, wait, I know. It was when he courageously opened the subjects of national security, state sponsored terrorism, extraodinary rendition, fiscal accountability, eroding citizen rights, invasive government meddling and other multilateral concerns, to fierce and cooperative debate. Promoting broad based involvement by the majority of this nation, and worked with Congress to end the protacted legacy of government lies and lethargy in this nation, in an effort to prove he was not merely "bluffing" when he promised a new age of transparency.
Oh, my bad. It was when Obama refused to escalate the George W Bush policy of "pre-emptive strike" that exists on par with Israel's like-minded strategy of "kill or be killed". And further promotes the theatre of fear that the vast majority of the Middle East justifies as they opt for vindictiveness and vengeance rather than veneraton and vision.
But, alas readers must excuse my erroneous eruditions. Since these things, of course, have not happened.
Now, while it certainly cannot be said the Bush did anything to decompress the explosive social and sectarian discourse occurring in the Middle East. The fact is that Obama has not done anything to help either.
That the East is experiencing an Arab Spring is owing to the peoples of this planet, and their escalating equanimity of collaborative conscience that has been enabled by the World Wide Web.
Which has inspired a new era of government corruption and aggressive posturing. As Obama seeks to invade this grass roots gargantuan with fear-mongering legislation. Citing the probability of cyber-attacks on this nation's infrastructure in the form of hacks into the software programs and hardwares controlling its power production and delivery grids.
Not to mention the ever-encroaching Patriot Act, TSA and other alleged security constructs that have opened a Pandora's Box of alarmingly odious actions perpetrated by seditious and treacherously criminal government cronies who truly intend to exist at the pleasure of a veritable dictatorial regime.
The very real truth is that Barack Obama begin bluffing his way into the Executive Office the moment he opened his mouth on the campaign trail in 2008. And he has not stopped since.
Not because he has no intention of sending this nation's citizens into military conflict with Iran. But, on the contrary, because he does.
He is bluffing when he pretends that he can effectively employ diplomacy and intellectual debate as tools capable of crafting a truly sustainable accord amongst the nations of the Middle East.
He is bluffing when he claims that he will actually operate on a level of credibility and conscience, equally redressing the concerns of all parties to the conflicts among Middle Eastern nations, regardless of the possible exposure of lies and lethargy which so often obscure the true nature of Israel's xenophobic zeal.
Just as well, he was bluffing when he begged for the opportunity to prove his respect and concern for this nation's security and prosperity. And then allowed -- time and again -- the gulf oil catastrophe, to expand off-the-hook. Refusing to take any demonstable action, just long enough to piss-off the entire nation, sending crude washing up on southern shores, and setting the stage for environmental retribution that would embattle the nation's resources and send ripples across the international community. Sparking deeper divides in the Middle East.
He is bluffing when he goads Iran into open dispute, never intending to do anything but take sides as Israel lobs threat after threat against a nation that -- on one occassion that evolved into a viscous vernacular of vilification (the "wipe Israel off the map" comment) -- has been forced to endure excessive ridicule and retaliation for actions its neighbors equally engage in. And Obama is certainly not expecting to actually employ a salient and extraordinary engagement of his duties as a means of leading the way ahead with examples of unwavering, intellectual equations that will evolve into peacefull resolutions.
Not to mention the fact that Iran has been invaded many times by both malevolent militaries and political machines. And has paid a dear price several times. The American-led coup that put the Shah in power being one of them. Furthermore the negative blow-back has occurred as the wise warned it would.
No, Obama merely blathers on and on, in his typically misguided and miserable mollification of Israel. Disingenously insinuating that he is capable of creating stability in the Middle East. Regargless of the fact that he is fully aware that his efforts will end in complacent and ignorant violence due to his myopic meddling.
Furthermore, it is not his head on the block. No, it is the American people he is putting in harms way with his refusal -- however unavoidable, due to his inabilities -- to actually do his job as this nation's Commander in Chief.
A job that requires him to FIND A WAY to diplomatically inspire freedom and equality, employing them as the only methods available in a strategy expected to promote security and peace.
