I'm Catholic. In my faith, as in most Christian faiths -- including the one Barack claims to belong to -- you serve God.
I wonder what his spiritual mentor would say about Barack's call for Americans to serve the country? I bet he'd have a lot to say about it. And some of it would be right on the money.
(And he's not Muslim either. The Muslim faith does not place a country above Allah.)
I'm so sick of Barack.. Please, Jesus, in November, let Americans vote for a new president. I can't take four more years of Repuublican rule under a so-called Democrat. If Republican policies are going to be forced down my throat, at least let it be a Republican betraying the Constitution.
Maybe Ron Paul will get the nomination? That's the only thing that might rescue the country at this point, put it back to where the Constitution and rule of law matter and get US troops back home.
This is from Shamus Cooke's piece for the Center for Global Research:
The United States appears to be using a strategy in Syria that it has perfected over the years, having succeeded most recently in Libya: arming small paramilitary groups loyal to U.S. interests that claim to speak for the local population; these militants then attack the targeted government the U.S. would like to see overthrown — including terrorist bombings — and when the attacked government defends itself, the U.S. cries "genocide" or "mass murder,” while calling for foreign military intervention.
This is the strategy that the U.S. is using to channel the Arab Spring into the bloody dead end of foreign military intervention.
For example, the U.S. media and government are fanatically giving the impression that, in Syria, the local population would like foreign militarily intervention to overthrow their authoritarian president, Bashar Assad. But facts are stubborn things.
After spinning these lies, The New York Times was forced to admit, in several articles, that there have been massive rallies in Syria in support of the Syrian government. These rallies are larger than any pro-government demonstration that the U.S. government could hope to organize for itself. The New York Times reports:
"The turnout [at least tens of thousands — see picture in link] in Sabaa Bahrat Square in Damascus, the [Syrian] capital, once again underlined the degree of backing that Mr. Assad and his leadership still enjoy among many Syrians, nearly seven months into the popular uprising. That support is especially pronounced in cities like Damascus and Aleppo, the country’s two largest." (January 13, 2012).
The New York Times is forced to admit that the two largest cities — in a small country — support the government (or at least oppose foreign military intervention).That's who Barack is, a war mongerer. A war demon. After Bush, you think we could have caught a break there. We had a crackpot in the White House for 8 years and managed to contain him. You think after that we would have gotten Ghandi.
