President Barak Obama - Advocate of Democracy and Revolution
President Barak Obama, is he an Advocate of Democracy and Revolution in the rioting in the middle east insurrections today? Is it possible for the President to be in favor of both causes at the same time? What is the United State’s and the present Obama administration’s foreign policy in world affairs today?
Recently the President of Egypt was forced out of office by protesters to the Mubarak led government. The protesters eventually forced the overthrow of the government.
The President of the United States publicly demanded that Mubarak leave the country and that the government be given back to the people. The United States did not come to the aid of one of our important ally’s in the middle east. Questions remain as to who will eventually control the Egyptian government.
With the turmoil happening in Libya, one would question as to why Secretary Clinton would be meeting with the Libyan protesters recently. Was the events in Libya a protest or a revolution for democracy? President Obama seemed to be from the start of the protest advocating for the protesters, some of which had connections with US business corporations in the US.
The situation in Egypt as to the new government’s political positions on middle east policies is crucial to our government’s future visibility in the area. Will democracy prevail or will the people remain under a dictorial type of government?
The protest in Libya against the Gaddafi government erupted in a full fledged revolution with the rebels and past army remnants attacking the government. The rebels advanced rapidly on Gaddafi armies
President Barak Obama again demanded that Gaddafi leave Libya and allow the people to form their own government. The President was behind the ouster of Gaddafi from the start of the conflict. Eventually the US pushed the United Nations assembly to condemn the Gaddafi Government’s actions to destroying the rebels and avoid the suffering of the Libyan people.
On 3/17/11 the United Nations passed a resolution ( 1973 ) to protect the Libyan people from the Government. Prior to passing the resolution, Secretary Clinton met with the rebels. The rebels have yet to be exposed as to who they are and who they represent. The United States Government’s participation in the situation should be questioned.
Is the situation in Libya a civil war or a revolution by the people of Libya? President Obama’s actions in the matter, one could Question if he advocates revolution to attain democracy, appears to favor the rebels.
The President was in Brazil today,3/19/11,when the attack on Libya began. The President spoke of his actions in supporting U N resolution 1973 and the part that the US Government will be taking. In Paris, France Secretary Clinton also spoke of the plans and efforts of the coalition to enforce resolution 1973. President Sarkozy announced that France will send planes to enforce the no-fly zone today.
The French air force attacked the defense positions of the Libyan government and the US fired 112 tomahawk missiles at 20 positions in Libya. AMERICAN FORCES have attacked another sovereign nation by the order of the President of the US Government.
Today is a dark day in the history of the United States Government. The United States attacked a sovereign nation, without a declaration of war, maybe killing other people who are not our enemies. The President announced that he met with leaders of both parties and they agreed to the Presidents actions.
The Constitution of our nation was violated again by the Obama Administration, without a doubt. The President’s statements prior to the start of the bombing make it appear that he somehow believes that he alone can dictate in matters of public policy.
Barack Obama quotes ‘’ the people need to be freed from oppressive government’’ referring to Libya ‘’where we use force we must be clear’’ ditto Libya ‘’Protect the Libyan people’’ ‘’there will be consequences’’ referring if Gaddafi don’t leave
Referred to US citizens as ‘’my citizens’’ we are not his property In Paris Secretary Clinton remarked ‘’ people of Libya called for help’’ wonder why the protesters in Iran didn’t get help? ‘’we will enforce the resolution’’ U N resolution
With all the turmoil happening in the world today, our Congress remains silent to the actions of President Obama. The 2010/2011 budget resolve continues. The 2011/2012 proposed budget projects another $1.5 trillion deficit to be negotiated and approved. The President provides no leadership to resolve the issues.
President Obama is on a trade mission visiting 5 countries in South America including Brazil. The President's 314 day oil drilling moratorium in the gulf forced some of the oil rigs to relocate to Brazil. In other words, we sent the jobs to Brazil.
Where is our President when oil prices are rising, food prices continue to escalate, unemployment remains at 9%, insurance premiums continue to increase, unions continue to benefit from the stimulus package and the government continues to get bigger. President Obama once said ‘’ I know your hurt’’ besides promising wonderful things if he was elected.
Wake up America, President Barak Obama speaks of the good that his administration has done. To be truthful, the President in the past 2 years hasn’t perform as to what he said he would accomplish. The people’s President belongs in Washington doing the people’s work first. Every week he’s on the campaign trail selling his agenda, preparing for the next election. People say that he is a brilliant man, that remains to be seen as his actions don’t appear to enforce the notion.
