America’s insanity

April 28, 2011

I found it quite amazing that President Obama released his birth certificate on Wednesday to silence the ‘birther’ movement. He shouldn’t have wasted his time. These idiots, who have continuously questioned the President’s place of birth, won’t be satisfied.

Donald Trump gloated that he was responsible for the birth certificate being released after his constant questioning of the President. Trump is stirring the pot and playing to the tea party crowd who only oppose the President because of his skin colour and not because of his politics. Trump will never get near the Republican nomination for Presdient, so he should just stick to his stupid hairpiece and his crappy show. He is an odious man, who is just an opportunist. Why anybody finds him noteworthy remains a mystery to me. Now he’s trying to stir the pot about the President’s place at Columbia and Harvard universities. Bob Schieffer, anchor of Sunday political show, Face the Nation, says it best when he accuses Trump of using race to further the debate.

The other neanderthals in the Tea Party and beyond unsurprisingly questioned the newly released birth certificate. One idiot saying that it raises more questions than answers. Please, do us a favour and go back underground and never surface again! America is made to look very foolish on this issue. After two years in office, they still want to have this debate. How pathetic are they? The rest of the world looks on and laughs at the cretins that make this an issue. It’s a shame Obama legitimised it by taking valuable time to address these nutcases.  No doubt they’ll find some other ridiculous issue to drag out before next year’s election.

The sand shifts beneath their feet

March 30, 2011

 

So once more, things appear to be moving quickly in Libya. The coalition of countries, including the U.S, UK and France, all agreed to enforce a no fly zone that was sancti0ned by the United Nations. The goal, we were told, was to protect the citizens of Libya from Colonel Gaddafi’s tyranny. The no fly zone shifted to a sustained bombing campaign. Now, there is talk of the Americans and the British arming the Libyan rebels in their fight against Gaddafi’s troops.

Yet it was just a week ago, the message was there was no chance of arming the rebels and that the removal of Gaddafi was not the primary goal. The whole thing seems to be a bit of a mess. From the ineptitude of British Foreign Secretary, William Hague, through to the haggling of Nato and EU member states, as to who should take command of the air strikes. President Obama is also providing more updates on a daily basis as to what he wants to see happen. Now he is saying that he is not willing to back the rebels just yet, as he is unsure as to who they actually are and what their motives may be.

The latest news is that the Libyan foreign minister, Moussa Koussa, has fled Libyan and arrived in London. The word is that he has quit the government and defected. What this means for Gaddafi in the long term remains to be seen. The chief of intelligence and speaker of the Libyan house has also fled the country to Tunisia according to unconfirmed reports. Earlier on Wednesday, the British Government expelled 5 Libyan diplomats because as William Hague says they may pose a threat to UK security.
