Obama wins, celebrates by bombing another country

You think I’m kidding.

Just hours after his re-election acceptance speech, it looks as though Obama ordered another drone strike over Yemen. Quoting the Huffington Post:

On Wednesday morning, as many Americans sifted through the voter data and exit poll numbers of President Barack Obama’s reelection the night before, the Twitter feeds of close watchers of Yemen lit up with reports of another sort of presidential event: an apparent U.S. drone strike had killed several individuals in that country.

There was no way of being certain if the strike was indeed American, or for that matter if it was a drone strike at all, although it had all the markings of one.

“All signs (after dark, suspicions of locals, target) point to Sanhan strike being a US drone,” Yemen-based freelance journalist Adam Baron wrote on Twitter.

Several other analysts concurred.

A White House spokesman did not respond to a request for comment. If it were a American strike, of course, it would have to have been authorized by Obama.

The “Drone Wars” are illegal under domestic and international law, yet we hear very little about these atrocities and especially not from Christian leaders. Instead, we are told we need more militarism, more war, more bombs, more aggression.

Though I am not suggesting that this drone strike is “extra significant” due to its proximity to election day, I would like to suggest that despite any words of “peace” that Obama has thrown out there over the past years are completely irrelevant at this point. The Left is just as bad as the right on warmongering – not to mention everything else as well – and Christians who think that another four years of “hope and change” are leading us to a “greater tomorrow” are absolutely kidding themselves.
