American Bombing of Syria Would Be Unjust and Immoral

August 31, 2013

Let me see if I’ve got this right. President Barack Obama has decided the Syria government has used unacceptable means of killing Syrians so Obama is considering demonstrating the acceptable way of killing Syrians by using conventional weapons to kill Syrians.

The fact that Obama is even considering such an action raises doubts about his sanity.

Killing residents of a country because the country’s government used chemical weapons to attack another country might be acceptable. However, the United States cannot justify punishing residents of a country because its government has mistreated them. Such an action would compound the original injury.

If the United States has evidence Syrian government officials have violated international law, the correct response would be to present the evidence to the World Court for prosecution for war crimes whenever prosecution becomes practical.

Killing even one innocent Syrian for a Syrian government official’s mistreatment of other Syrians would be murder. If Obama kills any civilians to “punish” Syrian government officials, Congress should impeach and remove Obama from office for the high crime of murder. The United States should then turn Obama over to the World Court for possible prosecution for war crimes.

The 25th Amendment to the Constitution assigns the Vice President and member of the president’s cabinet the responsibility of monitoring a president’s mental and physical health and relieving him if it appears he is not mentally or physically able to properly handle the powers of the presidency. The responsibility is similar to the responsibility of senior officers on a ship to relieve a captain who has become unable to handle the captain’s duties.

If Obama is considering killing innocent Syrians to punish its government for mistreating other Syrians, the cabinet should ask mental health professionals to evaluate whether or not Obama should be relieved of his duties until such time as he regains the mental competence to handle the office responsibly.

Will Obomber Destroy Syria in Order to Save It?

August 28, 2013

In the Vietnam War a marine officer once commented that he was burning a Vietnamese village in order to save it. President Barack Obama’s threat to launch a terrorist bombing campaign against Syria would increase the destruction of the country without any guarantee that the government would let America’s Imperial President dictate how it should treat its citizens.

Such bombing campaigns have a history of failure. Germany’s massive bombing of England during World War II failure to cause the country to surrender as did the American bombing of North Vietnam in the sixties. The Russians had to intervene in the Serbian conflict after the American bombing campaign failed to change things. The United States had to invade Iraq a decade ago to get Saddam Hussein to get rid of his Weapons of Mass Destruction after the bombing campaign failed to produce compliance.

Imperial President Barack Obomber has already destroyed one Muslim country in his efforts to convince people that he is Emperor of the world. Libya still hasn’t recovered from his destructive efforts. His inept handling of Libya hasn’t given his European friends the control of Libyan oil that they wanted when they got him to support their attack on the country.

Bombings often produce what American terrorist Timothy McVeigh called “collateral damage”. President Bill Clinton’s attacks on Serbia damaged a hospital and the Chinese embassy. Obomber’s bombing of Libya murdered some members of Muammar Gaddafi’s family with his bombing campaign. How many innocent civilians will die in Syria if Obomber gets to launch a terrorist bombing campaign against the country? .

When did the President of the United States become god of the world? Who appointed the United States to decide how other countries should treat their citizens? Would Obomber attack Russia or China if they mistreated their citizens or does he just try to bully smaller countries that are too small to defend themselves against the imperialist United States?

The United States has no moral authority to dictate how other governments should treat people considering the government’s mistreatment of the country’s original residents and the way it allowed the mistreatment of the descendants of slaves in the century after the Civil War.

Media and Old Black Leaders Have Dishonored Trayvon Martin

August 20, 2013

Members of the media and old black leaders have dishonored Trayvon Martin by portraying him as some type of defenseless child instead of the young man he was. Men like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton haven’t used the b-word [hint it rhymes with Elroy] but they have implied it.

At 17 Trayvon Martin was old enough to enlist in the army with parental consent. That made him a man. He was 5′ 11″ and weighed 158 pounds. We will never know for sure why Martin attacked the man named George Zimmerman, but it’s possible Martin believed Zimmerman was stalking him and thus posed a threat.

Martin did what young men sometimes do and decided to take care of whatever he thought the problem was by attacking Zimmerman himself. It’s not unusual for young men to try to prove they are men by taking care of threats themselves instead of turning the matter over to the police.

Young men often believe that they know everything, they can do anything and nothing bad can happen to them. Young men are particularly prone to fighting when under the influence of alcohol or drugs such as marijuana. Martin was under the influence of marijuana according to the medical examiner.

People unfamiliar with close combat have overstated the advantage Zimmerman might have gained by pulling out a handgun. In close combat an experienced fighter may be able to gain control of another’s handgun and use it against its owner.

It’s time to accept the fact that Trayvon Martin was a man who made a man’s decision to test himself by fighting another man. People should stop dishonoring Martin by portraying him as a defenseless child like individual.
