neocons neoprogressives, to the tune of the heartwarming Lee Greenwood classic:
I’m proud to be an Obamaite,
cus at least I know I’m not on fire like small children in Pakistan who couldn’t possibly be a “terrorist” in a country we have no business in…
Come on Obamaites! Hold hands with the Cheney Trolls of yesteryear and sing loud and proud. You EARNED it baby!
Used to be that the bank’s official hitmen, the CIA, had to go into foreign countries and convince their leadership to put together death squads that we trained and equipped in order to make their little corner of the world safe for our “national interests” (United Fruit, Standard Oil, the Morgans the Rockefellers, etc. etc.)
But these days President Peace Prize simply kicks back with a cup-o-joe on Terror Tuesdays and picks which “evil leftists” they are going to smite in the coming week. And even though he gave a lovely little speech a week ago about winding down the Global War OF Terror we have been waging, the fact is, just today they launched yet another illegal Death Squad From Above operation in Pakistan, the first since they elected a president whom our banking bosses did not approve of.
Seven people are dead from two hell-fire rockets launched at a little house in a North Waziristan tribal region. Villagers report they had been scared all day while two of America’s finest robotic monsters buzzed overhead all day just to eventually lash out with some more of Obama’s special brand of burning progressive love on their unsuspecting neighbors.
Obama™ claims to have some kind of super-secret legal memo which makes it legal for him to be killing people in foreign countries we aren’t at war with; countries that want us to stop killing their citizens with his cowardly unmanned drones.
With all the scandals unfolding and now this, his few remaining Obamaites cower under their desks rocking back and forth finally asking themselves if they’ve been had all these years. Of course, while more and more Bush fans sign up for the warmongering Obama Fan Club, the Obamaites are starting to realize they might just have backed the wrong horse. “w” in disguise…
Despite repeated and recent warnings that such attacks are destabilizing and an affront to its territorial sovereignty, reports indicate the US military executed a pair of drone missile strikes in Pakistan on Wednesday in what appears to be an attempt to assassinate a high-level Taliban commander.
It remains unclear whether or not Wali-ur-Rehman—the reported target of the attack— was, in fact, killed, but reports from various media outlets suggest between four and seven fatalities resulted from the attack that occurred in the North Waziristan tribal region.
“Pakistan has consistently maintained that the drone strikes are counter-productive, entail loss of innocent civilian lives, have human rights and humanitarian implications and violate the principles of national sovereignty, territorial integrity and international law.” – Pakistan Foreign Ministry
Citing Pakistan security officials and local Pashtun tribesmen, Reuters reports that the US drone “fired two missiles that struck a mud-built house at Chashma village, 3 km (2 miles) east of Miranshah, the region’s administrative town.”
A US drone strike has killed the number two of the Pakistan Taliban, Wali-ur-Rehman, in North Waziristan region, according to three Pakistani security officials.
Wali-ur-Rehman had been poised to succeed Hakimullah Mehsud as leader of the Pakistan Taliban, a senior army official based in the South Waziristan tribal region, the group’s stronghold, said in December.
The Pakistani Taliban is a separate entity allied to the Afghan Taliban. Known as the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), they have launched repeated attacks against the Pakistani military and civilians.
The witnesses told Reuters seven people were killed and four wounded. Without access to the site, officials could not confirm the number or identities of those killed or wounded.
“Tribesmen started rescue work an hour after the attack and recovered seven bodies,” one resident Bashir Dawar told Reuters. “The bodies were badly damaged and beyond recognition.”
The Pakistan foreign ministry responded to the attack with a repeat of earlier statements, calling the US drone strike “counter-productive.”…
President Barack Obama is prepared to nominate James Comey, a former Bush administration official with bipartisan credentials [What are they?], as the next FBI director. In a possible warning sign, the top Republican on the Senate committee that would review the nomination said Comey would face questions about his ties to Wall Street…
