Reactions from the Middle East

Barack Obama : Sowing the seed of progress in the wake of the Arab Spring

Here is the White House transcript of President Barack Obama‘s remarks on the Middle East and North Africa as delivered at the State Department on Thursday.

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you.  Thank you.  (Applause.)  Thank you very much.  Thank you.  Please, have a seat.  Thank you very much.  I want to begin by thanking Hillary Clinton, who has traveled so much these last six months that she is approaching a new landmark — one million frequent flyer miles.  (Laughter.)  I count on Hillary every single day, and I believe that she will go down as one of the finest Secretaries of State in our nation’s history.

Government employees : They contribute too - a lot most times

The current US national conversation about deficits has been allowed to swing to far against government employees everywhere, but more so against employees of the federal government. The talk of the town, propounded by people on the political right, but condoned by those of the political left, is that government employees do not contribute anything positive to the nation or the economy. But let us look at who constitute government employees:

  1. Department of Defense - members of the US military, civilian support for the US military, intelligence agency personnel.
  2. Department of Energy - Scientist working a very broad variety of

Act of Cowardice : Killing an unarmed man

Osama Bin Laden is a self congratulating killer of women and children of all background. The scoundrel of a man, a self-proclaimed mujahaideen and world recognized terrorist has claimed responsibility for three devastating attacks on US assets and interest through September 11, 2001, for much of the carnage in Iraq and the various terrorist blasts in London, Bali and many other locations across the globe.

Bush minions craving the credits....

Now the President who failed has his minions begging for credit. If only Bush had paid attention to the warnings he inherited from Clinton, Sept 11 2001 would have ended differently. America may have been saved the cost of two wars, and perhaps a recession. And America's power may not be waning now due to over extension in multiple-fronts.  The debt crises may not be as damaging.

Or if Bush had simply focused on Bin Laden in 2002 and not fixated on his filial revenge mission in Iraq, perhaps Afghanistan will not have devolved into a debacle (that Obama is striving to salvage) and the US would have gotten Osama already.

Osama Bin Laden reported dead - by President Obama

It appears that Osama Bin Laden is finally dead at the hands of US personnel in Pakistan. IMHO, he was caught (captured, apprehended), shot in the face (who is going to try him in the US, if they can't even try Khalid Sheik Mohammed?), took a few snaps and fed his body to the sharks - literary! Now Justice is served, the American way. Who can still say Obama is un-American?....

You want a tough guy? You got him!
