The world seems to be rejoicing as the man some see as a sort of messiah will become the 44th US President.
Unfortunately, he will largely be following a script handed to him by the real powers-that-be, just like Bush and just like McCain, had he won. The fact is that the real money men are in charge in the USA as everywhere else on planet earth, like it or not.
I am not in the slightest bit anti-American – I love them. They deserve better than they are offered by the mass media whores, i.e. a petty left/right tussle that only offers the illusion of ‘democracy’, but will ensure further dismantling of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Obama promised in his victory speech that “change has come to America,” but I’m pretty sure it will be a case of The More Things “Change” The More They Stay The Same.
Could Obama/Biden really be even more dangerous than Bush/Cheney?
George W. had 9/11 in his first year as President and Obama will have a major international crisis before next summer.
It’s not me saying that, but Vice President-elect, Joe Biden, who has guaranteed that a major event will be generated.
As for the UK Government, this is the opinion of David Miliband, the Foreign Secretary, on Obama’s success:
When he spoke in Berlin on July 24, Senator Obama pledged to work with Europe in a spirit of “constant cooperation, strong institutions and shared sacrifice.” That is precisely what we want to do.
Miliband then waffles on about financial stability and peace in the Middle East. He has a fine sense of irony. To be cool, he also mentions the threat of climate change and I’m sure that from his Party’s point of view, the more they can threaten us with the better.
