“As Commander-in-Chief, I will never hesitate to defend this nation, but I will only send our troops into harm’s way with a clear mission and a sacred commitment to give them the equipment they need in battle and the care and benefits they deserve when they come home. I will end this war in Iraq responsibly, and finish the fight against al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan. I will rebuild our military to meet future conflicts. But I will also renew the tough, direct diplomacy that can prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons and curb Russian aggression. I will build new partnerships to defeat the threats of the 21st century: terrorism and nuclear proliferation; poverty and genocide; climate change and disease. And I will restore our moral standing, so that America is once again that last, best hope for all who are called to the cause of freedom, who long for lives of peace, and who yearn for a better future.”
Barack Obama

The words of Barack Obama, who may end up becoming the next President of the US after the November elections. What I find and not surprising at that, is the scramble of many on the so-called British left, (whatever that is, all things that have nothing to do what so ever with Socialism) to indorse; I have a dream kiddie Obama, he’s just an opportunistic apologist for world capitalism and in particular the greed of US capital no matter whom is elected it will be big business that call the shots and the workers will ultimately pay the price - same old - same old. What if he starts specking to god that’ll be next?
