We Are Now In A "Covert War" With Yemen, That Make War #4 Now

According to CNN, we are now leading a covert war in Yemen:
Not a week went by when the anti-war/anti-Bush protesters were out when we had two wars and a Republican president.Protesters gather in Times Square to protest the Iraq War and U.S. involvement in Libya (Photo/Sophia Hall, WCBS 880)

Where is Code Pink and the "Gen. BetrayUs" signs now? Here is then Sen. Obama in his anti war speech in 2002 in Chicago:

by Senator Barack Obama, D-13
The following is a speech that I gave at a recent rally regarding the situation in Iraq. The rally was downtown at Federal Plaza and several Hyde Parkers attended:
Good afternoon. Let begin by saying that although this has been billed as an anti-war rally, I stand before you as someone who is not opposed to war in all circumstances.
The Civil War was one of the bloodiest in history, and yet it was only through the crucible of the sword, the sacrifice of multitudes, that we could begin to perfect this union, and drive the scourge of slavery from our soil.
I don’t oppose all wars.
My grandfather signed up for a war the day after Pearl Harbor was bombed, fought in Patton's army. He saw the dead and dying across the fields of Europe; he heard the stories of fellow troops who first entered Auschwitz and Treblinka. He fought in the name of a larger freedom, part of that arsenal of democracy that triumphed over evil, and he did not fight in vain.
I don’t oppose all wars.
After September 11th, after witnessing the carnage and destruction, the dust and the tears, I supported this Administrations pledge to hunt down and root out those who would slaughter innocents in the name of intolerance, and I would willingly take up arms myself to prevent such tragedy from happening again.
I don’t oppose all wars.
And I know that in this crowd today, there is no shortage of patriots, or of patriotism.
What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war. What I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by Richard Perles and Paul Wolfowitz and other arm-chair, weekend warriors in this Administration to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne.
What I am opposed to is the attempt by political hacks like Karl Roves to distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone thru the worst month since the Great Depression.
That’s what Im opposed to. A dumb war. A rash war. A war based not on reason but on passion, not on principle but on politics.
Now let me be clear: I suffer no illusions about Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal man. A ruthless man. A man who butchers his own people to secure his own power. He has repeatedly defied UN resolutions, thwarted UN inspection teams, developed chemical and biological weapons, and coveted nuclear capacity. He’s a bad guy. The world, and the Iraqi people, would be better off without him.
But I also know that Saddam poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, or to his neighbors, that the Iraqi economy is in shambles, that the Iraqi military a fraction of its former strength, and that in concert with the international community he can be contained until, in the way of all petty dictators, he falls away into the dustbin of history.
I know that even a successful war against Iraq will require a US occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences.
I know that an invasion of Iraq without a clear rationale and without strong international support will only fan the flames of the middle east, and encourage the worst, rather than best, impulses of the Arab world, and strengthen the recruitment arm of Al Queda.
I am not opposed to all wars. I’m opposed to dumb wars.
So for those of us who seek a more just and secure world for our children, let us send a clear message to the president today.
You want a fight, President Bush? Let’s finish the fight with Bin Laden and Al Queda, thru effective, coordinated intelligence, and a shutting down of the financial networks that support terrorism, and a homeland security program that involves more than color-coded warnings.
You want a fight, President Bush? Let’s fight to make sure that the UN inspectors can do their work, and that we vigorously enforce a non-proliferation treaty, and that former enemies and current allies like Russia safeguard and ultimately eliminate their stores of nuclear material, and that nations like Pakistan and India never use the terrible weapons in already in their possession, and that the arms merchants in our own country stop feeding the countless wars that rage across the globe.
You want a fight, President Bush? Let’s fight to make sure our so-called allies in the Middle East, the Saudis and the Egyptians, stop oppressing their own people, and suppressing dissent, and tolerating corruption and inequality, and mismanaging their economies so that their youth grow up without education, without prospects, without hope, the ready recruits of terrorist cells.
You want a fight, President Bush? Let’s fight to wean ourselves off Middle East oil, through an energy policy that doesn't simply serve the interests of Exxon and Mobil.
Those are the battles that we need to fight. Those are the battles that we willingly join. The battles against ignorance and intolerance. Corruption and greed. Poverty and despair.
The consequences of war are dire, the sacrifices immeasurable. We may have occasion in our lifetime to once again rise up in defense of our freedom, and pay the wages of war. But we ought not we will not travel down that hellish path blindly. Nor should we allow those who would march off and pay the ultimate sacrifice, who would prove the full measure of devotion with their blood, to make such an awful sacrifice in vain.
The left and Democratic Party seemed so passionate at the time. Obama came to fame for his anti war speeches. When Obama campained on Hope and Change most Americans thought it meant we would get out of the two wars we were in. That Gitmo would close and the Patroit Act would be disabled. Most Americans thought the we would protect our borders better and we would save a ton of cash being out of Iraq and Afghanistan. They thought Hope and Change meant a world that would love us and not hate us. They thought that having a great speaker like Obama would bring the world into a better order.

What have we learned from this? Are the liberals and Democrats now bigger war mongers then Bush and the Republicans? Were those anti war protesters just useful idiots that could be turned on and off like a hollow light bulb? Why has Obama changed his tune on war? Wasn't two wars enough? Wasn't Lybia only supposed to last only a week? It's been over 80 days now. We have troops in Lybia and now we are going into Yemen. That is twice as many wars as Bush put us in. But the lefties say and do nothing. I'm glade that they stopped calling our soldiers "murderers". I'm glade that they stopped making threats on the President.

If you used to be active in the anti war movement but stopped since a Democrat came into office, why? It sure did seem like you protesters meant it at the time. Why would anti war Sen. Obama put us into two more wars? Why is Obama in a war with Lybia without Congresses approval? Isn't that illegal? Is getting into a 4th war good or bad for America?

At least when the left were going after Bush and the wars they didn't try destroying the childrens dreams at the Special Olympics:
When it comes down to it, how can you make any sense from a group that does what they do? The left-wing act like they are crazy. Look at their actions. By their actions they are either crazy, evil or just a bunch of mindless puppets of the Democratic Party. I think they are all of the above.


  1. ONLY the loon-i-crats would create a mess for the olympians of the Special Olympics... and it certainly shows THEIR self serving egotistical narcissistic manner - THEY ARE ALL ABOUT ME, MYSELF AND I...

    Liberals have hated on the handicapped for a long time... Just mention Trig Palin, and the liberal trolls around here start foaming at the mouth... So, it's no surprise they disrupt the Special Olympics to push their agenda.
    I guess liberals are kind of "Special" too....

  2. Lupe Fiasco called out President Barack Obama this week, calling his fellow Chicagoan "the biggest terrorist."

    The comments came in an interview with CBS News Tuesday while discussing the political content of his music.

    "My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. I'm trying to fight the terrorism that's actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists."

    Americans are starting to see what this cat Obama is doing. I don't know why the Democrats have become so pro war now. Unless they are trying to spread our military and economy even thinner.

    Is Michelle Obama proud of Amerika now?

  3. And now Janet Nap. says targeting terrorist under the age of 35 is not a good idea to have for our country!

  4. The display at the Special Olympics was absolutely disgusting. Just when I thought the libtards couldn't get any worse......

  5. I didn't hear about Janet Nap. saying that. If it's true then we are in bigger trouble then I thought. It's as if the Hippies took over again.

  6. Seeing those special people crying after seeing bloody zombies made my heart sink. It must have scared the shit out of them. Why are the unions not saying sorry about this? Where is the Democratic Party on this? They were all Democrats and unionists. I still can't believe these liberals now a days. They make the Hippies look nice. And we all know that that isn't true.

  7. Who do these scums think they are, Obama?......As you know Obama made a joke about comparing his bowling to the Special Olympics.

    Trig Palin ring a bell? They said he was better off dead. Do they think they are God?

  8. BEIJING China has called for the creation of a new currency to replace the dollar as the world’s standard.

    Central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan recently proposed a sweeping overhaul of global finance that reflects China’s growing unhappiness with the U.S.’s top-dog role in the world economy.

    In the past, Western nations have routinely dismissed China’s currency goals. But this time, China is on the offensive, backed by Russia and others in making it clear that the dollar is “unsuitable for the world’s reserve currency.”

    The bottom line? According to one brave observer (Porter Stansberry), “The U.S. dollar is going to fall off a cliff over the next 12 to 18 months. It will be devalued by 55%-80%. There’s no way to stop it.”

    I basically agree with him (and the Office of Management and Budget plus the Treasury Department), who list a total shortfall of about $4.5 trillion coming due in the next twelve months, all to be paid for, supposedly, with less than half a trillion dollars in our currency reserves!

    It ain’t gonna happen. An authoritative comment on PIMCO’s website declares that today’s most widely accepted and well-proven rule of thumb says you must have reserves equal to 100% of your short-term external debt. And if you don’t, creditors will soon put you out of your misery.

    (Note: U.S. reserves—even counting all our gold and oil—
    come to 11%, not 100%.)

    Like a wino running up a huge bar tab, the U.S. has been piling up bills by the billions, and somebody will have to pay them. Soon.

    How? By printing more money, of course. And that will devalue the dollar against, oh about 200 foreign currencies.

    With every bailout, with every industry takeover, with every unaffordable new program, we have been getting closer and closer to the precipice. And now we’re very close indeed.

    How will you be able to tell when we’re teetering on the edge? Our main creditors will let us know but not a day ahead of time.

    Meet the Gang of 16

    The politics of replacing the dollar as the world’s reserve currency will look like World War III. The U.S. will not go gentle.

    But for the past six months, China has been quietly sidestepping all those fireworks. It has been opening currency swap lines with several Asian countries, including Indonesia, Malaysia, South Korea, and Hong Kong.

  9. Evil is out in full force. We told you this would happen when liberals got their way.

  10. Anon 'I didn't hear about Janet Nap. saying that. If it's true then we are in bigger trouble then I thought. It's as if the Hippies took over again.'

  11. Chris,
    Codepink is still out there. All i had to do to find out what they are doing is go to their website. Perhaps you've heard of the thing its on, the WEB? Don't be scared to venture outside of the Conservative Talking points pages and into the wide open expanse that is the NET. Perhaps you might even open up that closed mind of yours if you did.

    There are still plenty of leftwing anti-war protests and anti-Gitmo protests out there. You just ignore them and then claim they don't happen. Basically you knowingly lie because you don't care what the truth is.

  12. LOL, you forgot the other WARS Bush got us in.

    It was already 3 and 4 when Obama took office.

  13. Joe

    Indeed Bush did get us into wars after We were Attacked but the Great one Nobama promised to END the unjust WARS. What the Hell happened? Guess that Nobel Peace Prize dont mean shit to Terrorist still trying to kill us.

    Then theres
    the Patriot Act
    GITMO still open for Business
    Criminal Trials for Terrorist in NYC Oops Never mind!
    Lets not forget all the Democracies Nobama has backed in the Middle East. Should be interesting Meetings with the Muselem Brotherhood!
    Hell Nobama is Bush with a wee bit of Reagan. If Nobama could find Trumans backbone hed be a Patriot!


Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
