Obama Channels Bush at West Point

By Dennis Loo

George W. Bush could have delivered every single word, every single phrase, every phony and deluded claim, from the mouth of the current president at West Point last night.

For a sense of the outrage and seriousness of those who are opposing this "change," including growing numbers of people now waking up from Hopium, see this very good video from the Times Herald-Record.

This is a harbinger of what is to come. 300 yesterday outside the gates of West Point. Tomorrow and the next days to come ... ?

As Tariq Ali said yesterday, this escalation and decision to continue this unjust, illegal war and occupation may well be Obama's most fateful decision.


World Can't Wait mobilizes people living in the United States to stand up and stop war on the world, repression and torture carried out by the US government. We take action, regardless of which political party holds power, to expose the crimes of our government, from war crimes to systematic mass incarceration, and to put humanity and the planet first.
