Obama Starts Another Illegal War, Anxious To Win Another Nobel Peace Prize

                                       

Like Previous Marxist Leaders, Obama Appreciates Scorched Earth Policy

We are now engaged in another great illegal war, this one is in Yemen; relax, we are only killing Al Qaeda operatives and civilians, since Obama was elected with a 6% landslide margin and has the unflinching support of American Socialists, he is not bound by the usual rules that govern presidents. The war is classified so only the readers of the New York Times and Flopping Aces know about it; however, the relatives of civilians killed in the kinetic actions have probably put the pieces together. We are striking at militant leaders with armed drones and fighter jets, so in Obama’s unique definition of war and Nobel Peace Prize qualification, it narrowly misses being designated as a war, there is also a growing power vacuum in a nation we consider to be an ally.

Yemeni troops are battling militant troops of Al Qaeda for control of the country, Obama sees the use of American firepower as an option for keeping the same militants he has helped to gain power in other oil rich Middle Eastern Countries from gaining power. Obama realizes he alone must employ a discriminating and at times prejudicial sense of judgement to designate which tyrants should stay in power and which ones should yield to Al Qaeda.

Democrats have given their tacit approval of Obama’s gunboat or airstrike diplomacy because he has the much heralded but difficult to define superior intelligence to conduct rogue wars and assassinations of enemies and American citizens with style and aplomb so characteristic of Liberal hypocrisy. Its true they would have incited their witless legions to riot if these same acts of barbarism had been committed by a Republican, but they have a committed Marxist in the White House and questioning the Party Line or the Revolution is counter revolutionary.

These latest strikes come after strikes were halted a year ago as a result of poor intelligence that resulted in significant civilian deaths and bungled missions that were complicating the goals of Obama’s objectives, if we are to assume he actually has predefined objectives, like his intelligence he plays his cards close to his chest.

Officials in Washington acknowledged that American and Saudi spies have been receiving more intel from electronic eavesdropping and informants, but they admitted that the information could be programmed and manipulated to provide strikes against rival factions, those militants can prove to be real rascals.

An anonymous Pentagon official confirmed that using airstrikes and drones is complicated because Al Qaeda operatives mingle with other rebels and antigovernment militants, thus making it difficult for Obama to send his death from the sky without appearing as if he taking sides.

The American campaign in Yemen is led by the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command, and is closely coordinated with the Central Intelligence Agency. Teams of American military and intelligence operatives have a command post in Sana, the Yemeni capital, to track intelligence about militants in Yemen and plot future strikes.

Concerned that support for the campaign could wane if the government of Yemen’s authoritarian president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, were to fall, the United States ambassador in Yemen has met recently with leaders of the opposition, partly to make the case for continuing American operations. Officials in Washington said that opposition leaders have told the ambassador, Gerald M. Feierstein, that operations against Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula should continue regardless of who wins the power struggle in Sana.

The extent of America’s war in Yemen has been among the Obama administration’s most closely guarded secrets, as officials worried that news of unilateral American operations could undermine Mr. Saleh’s tenuous grip on power. Mr. Saleh authorized American missions in Yemen in 2009, but placed limits on their scope and has said publicly that all military operations had been conducted by his own troops.

American air strikes that kill civilians continue to complicate the situation; particularly, since there is no declared war or reason for the air strikes, especially for the civilians being killed and their relatives. There is always the chance of retaliation by those who feel as if their lives have been adversely affected by the death of loved ones by a trigger happy Obama.

“We’ve seen the regime move its assets away from counterterrorism and toward its own survival,” said Christopher Boucek, a Yemen expert at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. “But as things get more and more chaotic in Yemen, the space for the Americans to operate in gets bigger,” he said.

But Mr. Boucek and others warned of a backlash from the American airstrikes, which over the past two years have killed civilians and Yemeni government officials. The benefits of killing one or two Qaeda-linked militants, he said, could be entirely eroded if airstrikes kill civilians and lead dozens of others to jihad.

Edmund J. Hull, ambassador to Yemen from 2001 to 2004 and the author of “High-Value Target: Countering Al Qaeda in Yemen,” called airstrikes a “necessary tool” but said that the United States had to “avoid collateral casualties or we will turn the tribes against us.”

Obama’s policy of consulting advisors and bureaucrats that are less intelligent than him seems to be one of the more consistent features of his administration.

The Yemeni experts seem to be at least as knowledgeable as the most intelligent President, who has yet to provide any indications of his superior intelligence.

    Ivan is the world’s worst at running out when his hide has been tacked up on the barn wall for all to see.

    I don’t know, I mean liberal1(absolutely no objectivity) is pretty good at hit and runs, too. I guess they would have to have a contest to see who is the most cowardly when it comes to real, honest debate.

    Pay no attention at all to him because he’s nothing more than a lying, egocentric, hypocritical, bigoted, racist, sexist, homophobic, misogynistic, festering rectal fistula.

    : Dear Ivan,

    I�ll get back with you, when I�m able. The first thing that I want to do is to read the links which Mata kindly provided. I�ll reply to both of you, after I�ve done this.

    In the time it tool you to write these words you could have commented on the letter.

    But, like Aychmann, you took a pass and decided to bloviate about how you don’t have enough time.

    I’ll know next time to not waste any of my time on you.

    I don�t get paid for writing on this blog. The beauty of this is that I get to do things on my own time, when I want and if I want. If I ever fail to reply in what you consider to be a timely manner, please feel free to declare victory, or whatever. Otherwise, just take satisfaction in having the last word. That�s what most people do.

    @openid.aol.com/runnswim:

    @mata (#42). I was just trying to remind Ivan of the obvious. Contributors don�¢ï¿½ï¿½t even get paid on sites like the Huffington Post. When you volunteer, you enjoy a certain degree of freedom to pick your fights and to determine your own schedule in responding. I haven�¢ï¿½ï¿½t forgotten about other issues to which I intend, eventually, to return. e.g. the Constitutional �¢ï¿½ï¿½original intent�¢ï¿½ï¿½ issue (with John Galt) and whatever happened on the voyage of the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln (with you). When I can reply based on stuff in my head, I tend to do that immediately. If it becomes a particularly thorny and contentious debate, I like to find some time to properly research my end of it. I do this type of research when I have the time and am in the mood.

    Curt certainly deserves the appreciation and gratitude of all who consume what is written here and all who find personal satisfaction in having a forum for their points of view.

    And in the it took you to write these words you could have commented on my post.

    What a lightweight you are.

    @Aye:

    Considering Ivan’s history here…that’s really funny.

    Sorry, I have a really busy life that doesn’t allow me to keep up with every thread that goes over 80 posts. My FA posts usually go into my spam folder.

    But I’m touched that you’re so dissapointed that I don’t always get back to you!

    You know you did stalk me so you do have my email address and we could always talk via email if you’d like.

    So touching!

    Funny, I was thinking the same thing about you! Man are we on the same frequency or what?

    Aychmann, you’re a legend in your own mind!

    @MataHarley:

    And I see that Ivan continues to demonstrate how he’s the trailer trash of commentary….

    Excuse me! You’re the one who rides a hog, woman. Not me.

    And I’m curious, do you really call yourself a “christian”??

    Ivan… dearie. First of all, I am “scooter trash”… not trailer trash. Way a cut above you. You are, as usual, ungracious and grating in your responses. Which is why few of us have much patience, let alone respect, for you.

    Never called myself a Christian. You must be on hallucinagens. And if that’s supposed to be your standard of social graces for what you find acceptable discourse, then your trailer trash commentary and responses clearly indicate you don’t meet that standard either.

    Wow, should I have my feelings hurt that Ivanski didn’t send one of his silly tantrums my way??

    After careful consideration, I conclude that I am not upset that Ivanski didn’t think to name me when he threw one of his hissy fits.

    BTW Ivanski, I agree with the other regulars on this board that you do drop comments and then run out on real, honest debate. You are afraid of facts, evidently.

    Have a nice day!
