He is the man behind the rough looking body guards lounging lazily in the Foster Grants… like the fearsome North African leaders of old; he determines who lives and who dies… He is the hegemon… the angel of death… the grim reaper… he is Barack Obama. This once and ‘wanna-be-eternal’ king singlehandedly destroys whatever is in its path, like a two mile wide tornado in Oklahoma, the worst wildfire in Colorado history, or a once-in-five-hundred-year flood in Germany; and he seems comfortable propagandizing or lying without compunction or guilt, worse even than Bill Clinton. (“I did not have sex with that woman.”) Obama does much better with his dissembling: “before any [drone] strike is taken there must be near certainty that no civilians will be killed or injured“). GW Bush… should take lessons from this man-god… and a wrathful one he is!
He appears to be responsible for more gratuitous killing across the planet than any of his evil predecessors, and certainly more already than the 9/11 hijackers. All in the name of freedom and democracy… and for the glory of god. What sacreligious crap. He kills indiscriminately with one hand as he takes away any of the presumed rights this State was founded upon with the other. He is taking care of the enemy! (definition – ‘anyone who would presume to take food or petrol from the hand or mouth of deserving American Oligarchs, their friends and co-conspirators’) So he is locking up the ‘in-mates’ as he whittles away at the ‘out-mates.’ Talk about having your cake and eating it!
His Special Ops paramilitary units carryout secret missions of assassination, while his drone-army-camps — comprised of pubescent boys with pimply faces sitting in their dirty underwear eating Cheetos and drinking Chocolate Yoohoo in some dingy Washington DC basement – kill babies, children, fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, brothers and sisters, any one gathering for a meeting, a pic-nic, a game of pick-up basketball… or more than likely in Pakistan, a “jirga,” or assembly of tribal elders. Those are “signature strikes” ladies and gentlemen, taking out anyone who appears involved in any event that his ‘best and brightest’ computer-game geeks determine has the ‘signature’ of a terrorist gathering. WOW!! Sure seems simple enough; especially for the simple-minded Americans who buy this shit! But, sadly, the only thing ‘signature’ about these lucky strikes is the American John Hancock resting upon the lifeless forehead of every woman, child and harmless man.
Forty tribal elders dead!! killed by a ‘signature strike’ during a ‘pow-wow’ discussion of mining and logging issues in their local villages. WOW!! How the fuck do we do that? And get away with it! But, hey, anybody who can smile in the face of Guantanamo Bay, or Abu Ghraib, and the black sites literally littered across the globe in our name, while compiling private electronic communications data on all Americans — someone like this can certainly handle the indiscriminate killing of innocents in the name of his god, whatever its name happens to be.
But, don’t you know it… the killing non-Western indigenous types appears to be high priority on the agenda in preparation for the final leg of the race. The empire must find ways to reduce planetary population overshoot so that the imperialists have more stuff to consume until it all ends… perhaps extending their party a few more years. Remember, “he who dies with the most toys wins!” This is the ugly face of empire folks, as it makes the short strokes to “the end of time as we have known it.” Like most ‘actors’ on the civic stage throughout roughly 5,000 years of recorded history, our politicians have nothing more to offer us but increased control, oversight, manipulation and the threat of death. Nothing has really changed throughout the entire time… only the tools to manage the masses.
Do not let historians or histories of the founding of this ‘republic’ fool you. It was all a bunch of wealthy merchants, land owners, lawyers and charlatans with political clout that created a set of laws and documents to steal whatever they could from the indigenous populations here, and enrich themselves while importing slaves from Europe and Africa to tend their fields and work their machines. Furthermore, those documents and laws are always subject to hermeneutic revision, repeatedly revised and reinterpreted in order to satisfy the requirements of the managers and owners today. That is the nature of the beast we face. And they can rewrite, and rewrite, and rewrite as long as they like… it is built in to the system… And so while the tribal elders in Pakistan sit down to discuss the meaning of things in their communities… our leaders redefine the meaning of the law, so as to allow them to murder those tribal elders by drone, and to do so without reprisal. We are the executioner!
