Obama Orders First Murder

By

Congratulations are in order for President Barack Obama, who today has successfully completed the common rite of passage of Presidents: ordering his first murder.

See folks, don’t forget that morality doesn’t suddenly change for you when you enter the oval office or when you enter a battlefield (whether legitimate OR illegitimate). But in fact, presidents have a knack for just ignoring “conventional” morality, take Nixon for example, who said, “Well, when the president does it that means that it is not illegal.” Given, there is a great difference at times between what is legal and what is moral, but Presidents who believe they are above the law probably won’t have a problem being above morality either. From the UK report:

Missiles fired from suspected US drones killed at least 15 people inside Pakistan today, the first such strikes since Barack Obama became president and a clear sign that the controversial military policy begun by George W Bush has not changed.

Security officials said the strikes, which saw up to five missiles slam into houses in separate villages, killed seven “foreigners” – a term that usually means al-Qaeda – but locals also said that three children lost their lives.

So while pro-war conservatives should be thrilled that Obama is continuing the Bush foreign policy, we should call evil for what it is – unlike most mainstream media shills for Obama or Bush.

Hat tip to Rob Wicks for the story and for this quote:

So, while you can look into the loving eyes of your own beautiful daughters, somewhere in Afghanistan, a grieving family will never look into the loving eyes of three children again.
That’s the price of war, friends…

    Government does as government is. To expect anything else is lunacy. People need to stop fooling themselves about the nature of the state and get on with the work of eradicating it. Don’ get me wrong. I do not believe that we will ever rid this world of people intent on using the initiation of force as a means to their ends, but we should at least work toward shrinking the number of those who try to legitimize those means and perpetrate them with impunity. Theft is theft, murder is murder, slavery is slavery and fraud is fraud, regardless of the fancy names the state gives those actions, or the rationalization of them, or the number of people and guns they can get to back them. Step one is to starve the beast. End the Federal Reserve, protectionist tariffs and all other forms of taxation or government borrowing and fraud.
