They ‘say’ they’ve killed Osama Bin Laden

So, American forces are also saying that they have killed Osama bin Laden.  Do they really think this will make any difference to the world.  Terrorism is in the minds of a great many people, not really much to do about one individual.  How many more Osamas has America created?  If it was indeed Osama that planned the 9/11 attacks, do they really think there is not another Osama standing in line to take his place in martyrdom. Of course there is.

American foreign policy has ensured that terrorism will continue to flourish long after the defeat of this one man.  Of course terrorism is an anathema to most of us, however if one country imposes its will against another by force then it is a fact that they will react.  It all becomes a killing game of tit for tat.  Ordinary people do not want all this killing just for power for some and oil.  Countries with oil would be a lot safer if they just gave the oil to the USA.

Do they expect us to believe that there is a noble reason for targeting these small military-weak countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, North Korea, Pakistan, Libya, or Egypt? Their undercover forces bringing about revolutions in these countries, destabilising and causing huge suffering in order to give the USA superior power in these areas.  Draining these countries of their recourse’s.  Leaving them in a tragic and weak state.  Then they can use them for power bases like Guantanamo.  Or even Greenham common in the UK.

We do know what our governments are doing but just a vote does not change anything.  At this very moment western forces are trying to destabilise so many countries including Indonesia and China. What will be the outcome when these countries have been hurt enough and fight back?

Personally, I think it will make 9/11 seem like a walk in the park.

US President Barack Obama has quite rightly condemned an American pastor’s burning of the Koran, after violent protests.

The desecration of any holy text, including the Koran, is an act of extreme intolerance and bigotry.

It led to the death of 17 in Afghanistan. Obviously he is correct in stating this however we must see the hypocrisy in his statement.  He preaches for the right of all religions to worship safely, while simultaneously US forces kill and maim soldiers and civilians including the children who worship a different god to him.

If we accept that the Pastor is guilty of incitement to murder,  surely we must see the acts that Obama is guilty of.  War crimes?
