Losing hope in change

Obama is increasingly looking like a major advertising scam. The ruling elite proving that they really ‘can’. get away with murder.

Torture is exposed but goes unpunished. Yes we all knew it was/is going on. We saw the pictures. It was obviously systemic across all US military detention centres abroad, and the ICRC reports said so. So what is the point of releasing memos and doing nothing else? A puppet show? An illusion of something happening?

Even before he was elected, Obama was shifting the ‘blame’ to Afghanistan & Pakistan. US imperialism always finds someone to blame. This time, it looks more and more like a crusade. It does not matter how many are engaged in an evangelical crusade, but when there are videos showing that US soldiers are being instructed to bush the Bible in Afghanistan, then holy war looms larger, and all hell is going to break loose.

As for Iraq, well it looks like the largest ’embassy’ in the world was built in Baghdad with a longterm vision that is independent of the President.

Obama also shows unforgivable support for Israeli atrocities and Apartheid. Still refusing to talk to Hamas, and giving no hint of a change in US policy despite an ultra-right wing government in Israel. Palestinians are human beings too. With rights.

Obama appoints a dangerous Secretary of State, a woman who freely spoke of obliterating a whole nation, Iran, without provocation, and not only got away with it, but has become the voice of American foreign policy. She will get on with the Israeli foreign minister for sure.

Then Obama put incompetent Wall Street losers in charge of reviving the economy in his administration.

The US government is clearly subservient to finance to the tune of trillions out of taxpayers’ pockets. At the same time, they refuse support to the poor and those losing their homes.

Off to the Saudis, and Obama bows to the Saudi king like a devout Catholic to the Pope.

Yes it’s only 100 days and patience is needed. But surely we must admit that we are watching with diminishing hope and increasing disappointment so far.

Can he really? Will the system allow it? Beyond great speeches and pleasantries, what change can he bring? Who really is in charge there?
