The utmost example of liberal hypocrisy is that during the reign of Emperor Barack Obama that they have learned to love the type of wars that they once shrieked for George W. Bush’s head over. There will be the sound of crickets from the so-called left after the Obama junta unveils their brand spanking new Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) that will continue well into the tenure of his successor. The plan for the continuation of the “new normal” of endless war – and astronomical profits – will be rolled out by the White House tomorrow according to some reports. It will only be opposed by the likes John McCain who will find it insufficiently bloodthirsty. Don’t look for much opposition from liberals though, they are already lining up behind their global avenger Hillary Clinton and her improve or we’ll kill you policies.
As reported by The Guardian in a story entitled “Isis war to extend far beyond Iraq and Syria under Obama’s proposed plan”:
Barack Obama’s proposed framework for the US-led war against the Islamic State will not restrict the battlefield to Iraq and Syria, multiple congressional sources said on Tuesday, placing the US into a second simultaneous global war that will outlast his presidency.
Several congressional sources familiar with the outlines of the proposal, all of whom expected the White House to formally unveil it on Wednesday, told the Guardian the so-called Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) would bless the anti-Isis war for three years.
Congressional language to retroactively justify the six-month-old US war against Isis will not, they said, scrap the broad 9/11-era authorities against al-Qaida, as some congressional Democrats had proposed, meaning the two war authorizations will coexist.
Asked if the anti-Isis AUMF opens the US to a second worldwide war against a nebulous adversary, one congressional aide answered: “Absolutely.”
The next leg of the war that will never end in any of our lifetimes – short of thermonuclear annihilation – is ostensibly being declared on the Islamist extremist group ISIS. It was very fortuitous timing indeed for Obama’s pimping of the new AUMF in that it was announced by the White House this very day that U.S. aid worker Kayla Mueller, who was held hostage by the terrorist group has been confirmed dead. The propaganda is already circulating that Mueller was given to an “ISIS commander” with the unsaid innuendo being that she was used as a sex slave. Too bad that lyin’ Brian Williams is laying low right now, this stuff is right up his alley.
Not that Obama and his administration would ever stoop to the level of cynicism that would be required to hold off on releasing information on Mueller’s death until a politically expedient time.
Oh, Perish the thought.
So much for that ballyhooed Nobel Peace Prize that was awarded to the man of false hope and chump change. His real legacy will not only include an America gutted by his administration’s refusal to go after the predatory financial gamblers on Wall Street, expansion of the total surveillance state and growing racial unrest but now yet another global war decree. Who the hell pays the bills for all of this shit when it comes time to ante up the blood and treasure?
As Bob Dylan once sang, “sometimes Satan comes as a man of peace”.
