Barack Obama Outlines Plan for Afghanistan: RIP Benazir Bhutto :'(
To my leftist friends, I say that our awesome incumbent
President with the awesome name fusing Islam with the west
Barack Hussein Obama
spoke from the Muslim nation of Afghanistan to the American people.
He spoke of gleaming restructured high rises at ground zero,
following the misguided destruction of 3,000 souls there 10 years ago by young zealots
conned by the man
that President Obama
understood was the true enemy of Muslim, Christian, Jew, and all others alike,
Osama Bin Laden.
Great Britain's and America's immigrant, Dr. Winston O'Boogie,
Mr. John Lennon
said it musically in a way nobody can imitate
"Give Peace A Chance"
About one year prior to Barack Obama's election as President of the United States, on December 27, 2007, and just 2 days after the Christian celebration of the birth of another person of peace, Jesus Christ, Benazir Bhutto was brutally assassinated in Pakistan following her last political rally in the city of Rawalpindi, two weeks before the scheduled Pakistani general election of 2008 in which she was a leading opposition candidate after having returned to her beloved Pakistan where she was elected twice as Prime Minister, in a part of the world where that is almost unimaginable, and having compelled the dictator Military President General Pervez Musharraf that his time of oppressive rule was over and a general election in which she was the leading candidate was scheduled in 2008.
Prime Minister Bhutto was declared by the United Nations as a winner of the United Nations Prize in the field of human rights for her amazing work, received her honorary Doctor of Laws (LL.D.) degree from Harvard University in 1989 and was truly the embodiment of hope for South Asia in a multitude of ways.
Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, April 24, 1941 – December 13, 2010
At the beginning of Barack Obama's efforts to try and make sense politically and militarily of the goings on in the subcontinent another tragedy occurred in the untimely and tragic death of State Department veteran and a man who had the trust of almost all involved in the region, when Ambassador Richard Holbrooke died unpredictably of natural causes on December 13, 2010. It was Mr. Holbrooke who commenced political negotiations towards an end to the conflict in Afghanistan, and who deserves huge credit for enabling the ascendency of diplomacy over force, resulting in the forced leave of General McCrystal, the demotion and ultimate force of General Petraeus from his political base within the military to his civilian position he holds today as CIA Director, thus ending his own future political ambitions.
President Barack Hussein Obama
speaking to the nation tonight from Kabul, Afghanistan
making lemonade out of the
lemons handed to him by Cheney and Bush.
As I listened to this young promising President tonight from Kabul, I could only ask myself how things would have been so different had Benazir Bhutto's life not been snuffed out so tragically early and what a change Richard Holbrooke made in his life so dedicated to the cause of peace.
