High-placed killer among us boasts

Portrait of Peace Laureate whose role no one should model
Excerpt from Stop the War Coalition, re-reporting, comment by 
Carolyn Bennett

“In comments that were surprisingly bellicose even for the current political environment, President Barack Obama bragged loudly about the number of people he’s killed, urging hawks who don’t think he’s hawkish enough to ‘ask Osama bin Laden and the 22 out of 30 top al-Qaeda leaders who’ve been taken off the field.’

“He could’ve also advised them to ask thousands of Pakistanis, Afghans and Iraqis as well, or the family of Anwar al-Awlaki, the U.S. citizen he assassinated earlier this year, but the point was already made: an Obama Administration kills lots of people, and they’re pretty sure that’s what voters are in the market for.

“Moving beyond that, Obama went on to more familiar hawkish territory, trotting out his usual ‘all options are on the table’ threat against Iran, comments which appear timed to resonate through the Republican Jewish Coalition Conference, which itself centered on potential Obama foes bragging about how quickly and on how little pretext they’d attack Iran.

“‘Today Iran is isolated and the world is united in applying the toughest sanctions that Iran has ever experienced,’ added Obama, saying his administration had done more to unite the world against Iran than the Bush Administration had.

Unconscionable role to model

“‘Peace’ president Obama brags about how many people he's killed”

My count of countries in this entrenched U.S. global war is even higher and I don’t think my count comes close to the real total.  

The United States is at WAR with the world’s peoples and their countries

Arming and bankrolling to create domestic and regional pressure • assassination with impunity •    direct aggression • direct/indirect threat/intimidation • displacement/destabilization • economic/financial sanctions • failing nations • failure to negotiate with words or nonviolent diplomacy • provocation/incitement to protracted violence • occupation • unlawful search and detention • torture…
