War Is Peace:Der Krieg des Barack Obama

Bei diesem Beitrag handelt es sich um ein Blog aus der Freitag-Community

Friedensnobelpreisträger Barack Obama will endlich den Job in Afghanistan erledigen. Deswegen stockte er die Truppen um 30000 Soldaten auf bewilligte parallel den Einsatz einer verdeckten, vom CIA gesteuerten Schattenarmee, über die Bob Woodward in seinem neuen Buch "Obamas Wars" berichtet.

Weitere Strategien zur Bewahrung der Nationalen Sicherheit und zur Bekämpfung des Terrorismus:

- die Finanzierung privater Sicherheitsfirmen, die NATO- und US-Konvois schützen, indem sie den Taliban Geld zustecken

- der Einsatz von Viagra als Bestechungsmittel für Warlords

- die Unterstützung drogendealender, mit Taliban symphatisierender Warlords

- die Bezahlung korrupter Politiker bzw. Verwandter aus dem Dunstkreis Karzais

Der Job in Afghanistan begann 1979 und wird sicher nicht 2011 enden:

"In his latest book, Washington Rules, historian Andrew Bacevich points to this largely un-discussed aspect of recent U.S. wars. The "Washington rules" to which the title refers are the basic principles of U.S. global policy that have been required beliefs for entrance into the U.S. political elite ever since the United States became a superpower. The three rules are U.S. global military presence, global projection of U.S. military power and the use of that power in one conflict after another.Bacevich suggests that personal and institutional interests bind the U.S. political elite and national security bureaucrats to that system of global military dominance. The politicians and bureaucrats will continue to insist on those principles, he writes, because they "deliver profit, power and privilege to a long list of beneficiaries: elected and appointed officials, corporate executives and corporate lobbyists, admirals and generals, functionaries staffing the national security apparatus, media personalities and policy intellectuals from universities and research organizations."

Liberaler Kritik begegnet der Change-Präsident mit hilfloser Rhetorik:

"Democrats, just congenitally, tend to get -- to see the glass as half empty. (Laughter.) If we get an historic health care bill passed -- oh, well, the public option wasn't there. If you get the financial reform bill passed -- then, well, I don't know about this particular derivatives rule, I'm not sure that I'm satisfied with that. And gosh, we haven't yet brought about world peace and -- (laughter.) I thought that was going to happen quicker. (Laughter.) You know who you are. (Laughter.) We have had the most productive, progressive legislative session in at least a generation."
