Change That Isn’t

Now where have I seen change that isn’t before?

Barack Obama has issued a statement in support of a one candidate “election” in Yemen which will replace their brutal dictator of 30 years, Field Marshal Ali Abdullah Saleh, with  Saleh’s vice president of 18 years, Major General Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.Replacing one military dictator for another from the exact same regime. Shockingly, Obama actually called this “a model for how peaceful transition in the Middle East can occur“

But the “transition” is an illusion, just as like everything else from Obama’s promises of “CHANGE”. President Saleh will remain in control of all the industry he has greedily collected during his 30 years of brutal rule. Saleh’s family ties to the government and industry of Yemen will remain just as they are.
