Obama Takes a Stand on Child Soldiers

Posted on | October 5, 2011 | 4 Comments

HEADLINE: Obama waives penalties on countries that employ child soldiers – again!

Every president since Nov. 22, 1963 has been vetted by “the system.” You cannot be president unless you’ve been determined to be “a sound man.”

In other words, you will service elite power, foster the ongoing money transfer from taxpayers to corporations via the Pentagon and steadfastly refuse to forestall a far-reaching imperial agenda. You will use military power and military aid to preserve access to profitable natural resources. You will protect the national security state and its secrets. You will not investigate, indict or punish those who vetted you, or those who came to “power” before you.

And you will sustain the two-party system by shifting the public’s attention away from all of these responsibilities and, instead, focus their attention on the never-ending public relations battle between you and your opponents who, by and large, have been vetted by the self-same system.

Jimmy Carter was the only loose cannon allowed on deck, and we know how that turned out…it led to the October Surprise and Iran-Contra.

Obama was vetted. Take it to the bank…that is, if you can still afford to keep an account in a bank.

    man, it sucks to have your dreams crushed over and over.

    Americans are not happy. Remember what Jefferson said about citizens who do not feel recognized by their own government? He said it was our duty to begin a revolution.And, perhaps our blessed young people have. so joe,as one of the leaders in reader supported news, can you get them to print updates where protests around the nation are occurring.

    lack of patriotism and hurting others, always comes with push back…thanks for pushing back today Joe.

    You keep writing so much in so little space I may begin to call you a poet…and you would hate that.

    This is a remarkable statement, J.P. Terse. To the point. It fulfills the first requirement for any hope of improvement: correct diagnosis. It deserves a very large audience.

    [...] The world is awash in American arms and ordinance. Sometimes they end up in the hands of both friends and foes. Sometimes they end up in the hands of both sides of the same battle. They can be used to crack down. Or by death squads. And the use of children to fight doesn’t seem to be a problem. [...]
