PRE-LIMINARY THOUGHTS ON PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA'S SPEECH BEFORE THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY [9/26/2012]


PRE-LIMINARY THOUGHTS ON PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA'S SPEECH BEFORE THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY [9/26/2012]



ONE HAS TO BE 'COMPLETELY' IGNORANT OF THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD IN THE LAST 500 YEARS, IN PARTICULAR THE POLITICAL-ECONOMIC POLICIES OF THE THE WEST & SOUTH EAST ASIA [CHINA/JAPAN] WITHIN THE LAST FOUR DECADES, IN ORDER TO ACCEPT PRESIDENT OBAMA'S SPEECH BEFORE THE UN TODAY AS ACCURATE, SINCERE AND TRUTHFUL.

"...Helped the Libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for a future in which the rights of all Libyans would be respected. After the revolution... supported the birth of a new democracy, as Libyans held elections, built new institutions, and began to move forward after decades of dictatorship." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

HMMMM, MURDER OF BLACK LIBYANS, COUNTRY MIRED IN SECTARIAN VIOLENCE, DURING THE 'REVOLUTION' [WESTERN BACKED REGIME CHANGE]. SENT THE COUNTRY 40 YEARS BACKWARD. [JUST READ UN HUMAN DEVELOPMENT REPORTS ON THE LIBYA BEFORE THE 'REVOLUTION']. WHAT NEW INSTITUTIONS IN LIBYA???? NEW DEMOCRACY IN LIBYA, CREDIBLE ELECTIONS??? WHAT LIBYA HE TALKIN BOUT.

"...Set of principles – a belief that individuals should be free to determine their own destiny, and live with liberty, dignity, justice, and opportunity." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

INDIVIDUALS SHOULD BE ABLE TO DETERMINE THEIR OWN DESTINY? AMERICA BELIEVES THAT? WHEN THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE OVERWHELMINGLY VOTED HAMAS INTO POWER, THE US AND ISRAEL
 BOTH REFUSED TO ACCEPT THE RESULTS AND HAVE SABOTAGED HAMAS EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. LETS NOT FORGET US OVERTHROW OF THE ELECTED GOVERNMENT IN IRAN IN 1954, NKRUMAH IN GHANA IN 1966, LUMUMBA IN CONGO IN 1960, US SUPPORT FOR THE BOER/AFRIKAANERS IN SOUTH AFRIKA FROM THE EARLY 1900S TO 1994. SMALL FARMERS ACROSS AFRIKA WANT TO MAINTAIN THEIR SMALL FARMS AND THEY ARE PITTED AGAINST MULTINATIONALS SUPPORTED BY AMONG OTHERS THE US SO MUCH FOR THE SUPPORT OF THE PEOPLE, UNLESS HE IS DEFINING THE PEOPLE IS THE 1%.

"...The notion that people can resolve their differences peacefully; that diplomacy can take the place of war;" [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

REALLY? SO THE US WORLD DOMINATION TOUR OVER THE LAST 40 YEARS AND THE MILLIONS MURDERED THROUGH US LED AND SUPPORTED WARS WAS REALLY DIPLOMACY. HMMM, GUESS WAR IS PEACE.
"We must speak honestly about the deeper causes of this crisis." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]
I AGREE WITH THE PRESIDENT, BUT CAN THE UN CONTROLLED BY THE POLITICS, ECONOMICS AND MILITARY'S OF THE G8 COUNTRIES ACTUALLY BE EXPECTED TO CONDEMN IT SELF AND PRACTICE THAT CHRISTIAN SPIRIT OF RECOMPENSE. [SEE ZACHEUS AND HIS CONVERSATION WITH JESUS IN THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE NEW TESTAMENT, BOOK OF MATTHEW.] THE DEEPER CAUSES ARE THE VERY THINGS THEY SEEK TO SUSTAIN.
"...Violence and intolerance has no place among our United Nations." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

YOU KIDDING RIGHT? HE ACTUALLY SAID THAT. WHEN NOT ENGAGED IN POLITICAL VIOLENCE [FOMENTING CIVIL WARS AND SECTARIAN STRIFE, ASSASSINATIONS, ENGAGING IN WAR, OVERTHROWING GOVERNMENTS WHICH DO NOT SUPPORT THE US AGENDA, PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE [MEDIA DIS-INFORMATION, PROPAGANDA] THE US ALSO PURSUES A POLICY OF ECONOMIC WARFARE, WHICH IS MUCH MORE VICIOUS AND MURDERS MANY MORE MILLIONS.



"...The world has been captivated by the transformation that has taken place, and the United States has supported the forces of change...our support for democracy put us on the side of the people." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

FORCES OF CHANGE BEGAN KILLING EACH OTHER BEFORE THE US INTERVENED AND GAVE THE SUPPORT TO TOPPLE QUADDAFI. THE ONLY THING ALL OF THE SECTARIAN GROUPS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO AGREE ON IS THE MURDER OF AFRIKANS [I DONT USE THE TERM 'BLACK AFRIKAN' BECAUSE ANYBODY IN AFRIKA WHO AIN'T 'BLACK' IS EITHER AND INVADER, THE DESCENDANT OF AN INVADER OR SOMEONE THE INVADER BROUGHT TO ACT AS A BUFFER BETWEEN THEM AND US, OR SOMEONE WE LET IN PRACTICING OUR HUMANITY AND THEN THEY SIDED WITH THE INVADER]

THAT IS NOT CHANGE FOR THE GOOD WHICH HAS OCCURRED IN LIBYA, NOR EGYPT. IN EGYPT ITS BASICALLY THE SAME PEOPLE IN CONTROL. SOMEWHAT SIMILIAR TO SOUTH AFRIKA IN 1994 [AS FAR AS THE SEMBLANCE OF CHANGE IS CONCERNED], THE WHITE SOUTH AFRIKANS NEVER LEFT POWER, THEY ARE STILL THE DOMINANT FORCE IN SOUTH AFRIKA, AN AFRIKAN CONTROLLED GOVERNMENT JUST GAVE THE COVER TO SPREAD THEIR INVESTMENT DOLLARS IN COUNTRIES WHERE THEY COULDN'T GO BEFORE.

GUESS WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO CONSIDER THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE WHO WANT DEMOCRACTIC CHANGE.

"...The interests of the people were not being served by a corrupt status quo." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

THE PRESIDENT IS TALKING HERE ABOUT YEMEN, WHICH THE US HAD SUPPORTED FOR THE PAST 40 YEARS. I ASK HOWEVER, ARE THE INTERESTS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BEING SERVED BY ITS CORRUPT STATUS QUO THAT HAS CONTINUOSLY SENT THE CHILDREN OF THE MASSES TO DIE IN FOREIGN LANDS TO FACILITATE THE EXPANSION OF AMERICAN BUSINESS INTERESTS SINCE 1900. A STATUS QUO THAT HAS BILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR WAR BUT NOTHING TO GIVE TO THE WELFARE OF THE MASSES. A STATUS QUO THAT PRACTICES SOCIALISM FOR THE WEALTHY AND PREDATORY INDIVIDUALISM FOR THE REST?

"We intervened in Libya alongside a broad coalition, and with the mandate of the U.N. Security Council, because we had the ability to stop the slaughter of innocents; and because we believed that the aspirations of the people were more powerful than a tyrant." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

THE PEOPLE WHO WERE SLAUGHTERING WERE THE ONES THE US WAS AND IS SUPPORTING. THE ONES THAT HAVE NOW TURNED THEIR WEAPONS FULLY ON THE US. THEY BEGAN BY SLAUGHTERING ANY AND ALL AFRIKANS. THEY ARE DIVIDED ALONG ETHNIC LINES AND WHEN NOT UNIFORMLY MURDERING AFRIKANS, THEY ARE SLAUGHTERING EACH OTHER. THEY WERE KEPT IN CHECK BY THE 'TYRANT', BECAUSE THEY WERE DISARMED. YOU HAVE YET TO HEAR THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE ONLY THE VOICES OF COLLABORATORS AND OPPORTUNISTS.

"We have taken these positions because we believe that freedom and self-determination are not unique to one culture. These are not simply American values or Western values – they are universal values. And even as there will be huge challenges that come with a transition to democracy, I am convinced that ultimately government of the people, by the people and for the people is more likely to bring about the stability, prosperity, and individual opportunity that serve as a basis for peace in our world." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

SUCH BEAUTIFUL WORDS, BUT FROM WHOSE CULTURAL CENTER ARE WE DEFINING THEM FROM? IN PRACTICE WE HAVE FREEDOM AND SELF-DETERMINATION FOR THE FEW AND MASS DEPENDENCY FOR THE MASSES IN ALL COUNTRIES. WITH THE US AND ITS ALLIES PRAISING AND SUPPORTING ANY AND ALL GOVERNMENTS THAT ACCEPT THE STATUS QUO. NO REAL DEMOCRACY IS TOLERATED. AFTER ALL DEMOCRACY IN THE EXPLOITED LANDS IS THE GREATEST ENEMY OF THE CURRENT GLOBAL SOCIAL ORDER.





"So let us remember that this is a season of progress. For the first time in decades, Tunisians, Egyptians, and Libyans voted for new leaders in elections that were credible, competitive, and fair." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

CREDIBLE, COMPETITIVE AND FAIR ELECTIONS? IN LIBYA? YOU ARE KIDDING RIGHT? TUNISIA? EGYPT? NO [http://www.huffingtonpost.com/alaa-al-aswany/egypt-election_b_1539287.html]

"Around the globe, people are making their voices heard, insisting on their innate dignity, and the right to determine their future." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

WE HAVE HEARD THESE VOICES AROUND THE GLOBE SINCE THE ADVENT OF EUROPEAN EXPANSIONISM AND GLOBALIZATION 500 YEARS AGO. WITHIN THE LAST 50 YEARS THEY BEGAN THE SLOW AGONIZING 'TURNING OF THE TIDE' AGAINST WESTERN DOMINATION. THE COUNTER-REVOLUTION WHICH BEGAN IN THE LATE 1960S AND INCREASED IN EARNEST IN THE 1980S IS WHAT WE ARE WITNESSING NOW. CREATING APPARENT CHANGE AS A MEANS OF PACIFYING AND ATTEMPTING TO STIFLE THE LIBERATORY MOVEMENTS TO SUFFOCATE THEM. THE US IS NOT IN SUPPORT OF REVOLUTIONARY CHANGE IT IS COMPOSED OF INSTITUTIONS FOUNDED TO MAINTAIN THE DOMINATION OF EUROPE OF WHICH AMERICA IS CHILD. THEY DERAILED THE 'ARAB SPRING' AND USED IT TO PURSUE IMPERIALIST POLICIES IN COTE D'VOIRE, LIBYA, SYRIA AND IRAN.

"True democracy demands that citizens cannot be thrown in jail because of what they believe, and businesses can be opened without paying a bribe. It depends on the freedom of citizens to speak their minds and assemble without fear; on the rule of law and due process that guarantees the rights of all people." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

A DECIDEDLY WESTERN CORPORATE ORIENTED VIEW OF DEMOCRACY. MANY SOLDIERS HAVE FLED TO CANADA [AND BEEN RETURNED. THESE CANADIANS AIN'T THE ONES OF THE 1960S] FOR REFUSING TO GO AND FIGHT IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN. THEY BELIEVED IT WAS WRONG. UMMM, THE US IS THROWING THEM IN JAIL FOR AT LEAST A YEAR [18 MONTH MAXIMUM SO FAR] I DON'T NEED TO REMIND ANY AFRIKAN HOW THE RULE OF LAW AND DUE PROCESS WORK FOR US IN AMERICA. GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.

"In hard economic times, countries may be tempted to rally the people around perceived enemies, at home and abroad, rather than focusing on the painstaking work of reform. Moreover, there will always be those that reject human progress – dictators who cling to power, corrupt interests that depend upon the status quo; and extremists who fan the flames of hate and division." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

ISN'T THAT WOULD BUSH DID IN 2001? DIRE ECONOMIC SITUATION LOW APPROVAL RATING. GO TO WAR IN AFGHANISTAN FOLLOWED BY IRAQ. RALLY THE PEOPLE AROUND PERCEIVED THREATS. LIKE WHAT HITLER DID: BURN THE REICHSTAG BLAME THE COMMUNISTS. IN AMERICA IT WAS THE SEPTEMBER 11TH ACTIVITIES WITH BOXCUTTER WIELDING SAUDI ARABIANS. [SAUDI ARABIA IS AN ALLY THOUGH SO THEIR SAFE. FOR NOW!] AREN'T THEIR CORRUPT INTERESTS IN THE US THAT DEPEND ON THE STATUS QUO [ECONOMIC INSTABILITY, UNEMPLOYMENT]? AREN'T THEIR EXTREMISTS IN THE 'RED STATES' FANNING FLAMES OF HATE AND DIVISION WITH SLOGANS LIKE 'TAKING BACK OUR COUNTRY'?

"Americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views – even views that we disagree with." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]
THE PHILIPPINES AND CUBA 1898, THE CARIBBEAN & SOUTH AMERICA [ESPECIALLY HAITI], 1900 - PRESENT, KOREA 1950S, VIETNAM, CAMBODIA, LAOS 1950S-1970S, GRENADA & PANAMA 1980S, IRAQ 1991 - PRESENT, AFGHANISTAN 2001 - PRESENT. YES, AMERICANS HAVE FOUGHT, BUT IT WAS NOT TO PROTECT THE RIGHT OF ALL PEOPLE TO EXPRESS THEIR VIEWS AND ESPECIALLY NOT FOR THOSE VIEWS THAT THE US DISAGREED WITH. WHETHER IT WAS THOSE ACTIONS MENTIONED OR THE CLANDESTINE ACTIONS IN GHANA [1966], CONGO [1960], IRAN [1954], CHILE [9/11/1973] THE DEATH OF THE POOR WHO ARE ECONOMICALLY MANEUVERED INTO THE MILITARY ARE DYING FOR GLOBAL CORPORATE ECONOMIC INTERESTS.

"There are no words that excuse the killing of innocents...or cause death and destruction..." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

YOU GET JUSTIFICATIONS FOR AMERICAN VIOLENCE WHICH CAUSES DEATH AND DESTRUCTION INTO THE MILLIONS, CONDUCTED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD, DAILY ON THE EVENING NEWS FROM THE US GOVERNMENT, PRESIDENT INCLUDED!
"The United States has not, and will not, seek to dictate the outcome of democratic transitions abroad." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

YOUR JOKING RIGHT!
"I do believe that it is the obligation of all leaders, in all countries, to speak out forcefully against violence and extremism." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

HOW ABOUT YOU SET THE EXAMPLE AND TAKE YOUR OWN ADVICE MR. PRESIDENT AND SPEAK OUT AGAINST AMERICAN, FRENCH, BRITISH, ETC. VIOLENCE AND EXTREMISM, BOTH AT HOME AND ABROAD. FOR THAT MATTER WHERE ARE ALL THE SO-CALLED AMERICAN PROGRESSIVES. WHERE ARE ALL THE 'YOU MUST VOTE' PREACHERS? WHERE ARE ALL OF YOU YESTERDAY RADICAL AND PSUEDO-REVOLUTIONARIES [OH YEAH THATS RIGHT YOU ALL ARE 'WAGGIN YA TAILS, TONGUE HANGIN OUT AT OBAMAS SIDE FAITHFULLY'.]









"We will stand with our allies and are willing to partner with countries to deepen ties of trade and investment; science and technology; energy and development... A politics based only on anger –one based on dividing the world between us and them – not only sets back international cooperation, it ultimately undermines those who tolerate it. All of us have an interest in standing up to these forces...The impulse towards intolerance and violence may initially be focused...but over time it cannot be contained... It is time to leave the call of violence and the politics of division behind." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

ALL OF THIS IS THE HALLMARK OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION. THE POLITICS OF ANGER, VIOLENCE AND INTOLERANCE AND THEN WHEN THE OBJECT OF SUCH REACT THEY ARE ACCUSED OF PRACTICING THE SAME. UNDER SUCH HUMANITARIAN AIMS AS PROMOTING TRADE AND INVESTMENT TO DEVELOP UNDERDEVELOPED COUNTRIES [WHY ARE THEY UNDERDEVELOPED?] SHARING SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY [NOT THE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY OF WARFARE, WHEREBY THEY COULD CHALLENGE FOR POWER, NOR THE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY OF RESOURCE EXTRACTION AND DEVELOPMENT WITHIN THE DEVELOPING WORLD] AND ENERGY AND DEVELOPMENT [UNDERDEVELOPMENT, TO PERMIT RESOURCE EXPLOITATION] THE STATUS QUO MAINTAINS THE STATUS QUO. INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION HAS BEEN SET BACK SINCE THE ADVENT OF EUROPEAN EXPANSIONISM.

"The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a country's resources – it must be won by the students and entrepreneurs; workers and business owners who seek a broader prosperity for all people." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

THE BUSINESS OWNERS CREATED THE ECONOMIC CRISIS AND MAINTAIN CERTAIN LEVELS OF UNEMPLOYMENT. STUDENTS AND ENTREPREN
EURS CAN ONLY BRING ABOUT CHANGE WITH A NEW PHILOSOPHY OF ACTION [INDIVIDUAL CAPITALISM WILL NOT DO IT.] AND THE US ELITE [MILLIONAIRE OBAMA INCLUDED] IS APART OF THE CORRUPT FEW. BUT HE IS CORRECT THE FUTURE MUST BE 'WON' THERE WILL BE A STRUGGLE/CONFLICT TO TRULY BRING ABOUT CHANGE: AND IT WONT BE TELEVISED [YOU KNOW LIKE THE 'CHANGE' THAT OCCURRED IN 2008 AND BROUGHT TEARS TO YOUR EYES.] I SHOULD SAY THERE IS A STRUGGLE AND IT HAS BEEN GOING ON CONTINUOUSLY SINCE CONSERVATIVELY THE LAST 50 YEARS.

"If there is a cause that cries out for protest in the world today, it is a regime that tortures children and shoots rockets at apartment buildings." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

WHERE ARE YOUR CRIES AGAINST THE AMERICAN REGIME THAT IS DOING AND HAS BEEN DOING THIS FOR WELL OVER 50 YEARS?
"At a time of economic challenge, the world has come together to broaden prosperity. Through the G-20, we have partnered with emerging countries to keep the world on the path of recovery. America has pursued a development agenda that fuels growth and breaks dependency.." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

NONE OF THE INSTITUTIONS WHICH SUPPORT SELF-SUFFICIENCY AND BREAK DEPENDENCY ARE OR COULD BE BUILT. THAT WOULD GO AGAINST AMERICAN AND WESTERN ECONOMIC INTERESTS. THE SAME GOES FOR CHINA, INDIA, BRAZIL ETC. AFRIKAN SELF-SUFFICIENCY IS THE GREAT ENEMY OF WESTERN AND TRANSITIONING COUNTRY ECONOMIC INTERESTS.
"People everywhere long for the freedom to determine their destiny; the dignity that comes with work; the comfort that comes from faith; and the justice that exists when governments serve their people – and not the other way around." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

TRUE! AND NOWHERE IN THE POST-COLONIAL WORLD DOES THIS EXIST. THIS IS WHAT THE 500 YEAR STRUGGLE AMONG OTHER THINGS IS STRIVING FOR.






“Make no mistake: a nuclear-armed Iran is not a challenge that can be contained. It would threaten the elimination of Israel, the security of Gulf nations, and the stability of the global economy... The war in Iraq is over, and our troops have come home. We have begun a transition in Afghanistan, and America and our allies will end our war on schedule in 2014. Al Qaeda has been weakened and Osama bin Laden is no more. Nations have come together to lock down nuclear materials, and America and Russia are reducing our arsenals." [PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SPEECH BEFORE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY, SEPTEMBER 2012]

AMERICA, ITS NATO ALLIES, RUSSIA AND THE FORMER SOVIET REPUBLICS, CHINA AND ISRAEL HAVE NUCLEAR WEAPONS. NATO LEAD BY THE US HAS WAGED WAR SINCE 1991 AND DE-STABLIZED THE GULF NATIONS. BEFORE THAT AMERICA SUPPLIED AND FINANCED IRAQ IN THE IRAQ IRAN WAR [1980-1988] AND AMERICA CREATED AL QAEDA TO BLEED THE SOVIETS DRY IN AFGHANISTAN FROM 1979 - 1990. THE US HAS USED NUCLEAR TIPPED ORDINANCE FROM 1991 TO THE PRESENT AND HAS NO INTENTION OF ELIMINATING ITS NUCLEAR ARSENAL IN ITS ENTIRETY. SO HOW IS IRAN THE PROBLEM AGAIN?
