No Cure For That

Thursday, during a live video streaming event from the White House, I got to ask President Obama a fair question, but one that is never asked of him in the mainstream media: “How is your PREVENTATIVE war policy different than the Bush doctrine, and can you refute the assessment of MLK that the US government is the greatest purveyor of violence in the world?” - DT

Wow. The President effectively dodged an opinion landmine there. =\ I really wish he didn't look so uncomfortable giving his answers.

I knew he was gong to pull a "juke" move on the question... but im still "heartbroken" that it happened.

I have a feeling that if there were no fear in having his words dissected and put under a microscope by the right, this question would've been answered a lot better.

Im not even a politician, pundit or ANYTHING, but even "I" would be weary of that kind of attention being paid to every word I say on record, liable to be twisted up and presented however whomever saw fit.

regardless of how it went down, thats really dope that you got facetime, so to speak.

Dennis, the real policy you are questioning is called US foreign policy. And there are different objectives to the US of foreign policy between Democrats and Republicans. Since WWII, the main thrust has been to democratize the world. There is good and bad in this objective. The good being everyone should be able to choose their own leadership. The bad, not everyone wants democracy. Then there is the economic angle behind the policy. This is where major difference occurs between Republicans and Democrats. The Republicans are more apt to use military force to influence and obtain their economic goals world wide. Democrats tend to prefer a more passive use of military and bargain for favor. The Obama administration over lapped the Republican military efforts. And once the military is unwisely put into play such as Iraq, there is no over night fix or reverse. How does America avoid the current predicament it is in? Reduce the numbers of Republicans that are in office. Republicans are running off an ideological script which ultimately puts the rich in control of the daily lives of everyone and the government is reduced to the servant of the wealthy. The so called Bush doctrine is really the Republican doctrine. Bush really wasn't of the intellect to devise his own doctrine

First, congratulations on having your question asked to President Obama.

Second, congratulations on proving Obama to be nothing more than another puppet, in a long line of puppets for Wall Street and the Military Industrial complex.

Obama is not a liberal. He's not a progressive. He's not even a centrist. He's further to the right on some policies than even George W Bush was. (*cough* assassination of US citizens *cough*)

This guy is fulfilling the duty of the DLC, to pretend to be a foil to Republicans and to represent the People. This system is corrupt from the top down.

Also, Mr. President and preventative war proponent, if Afghanistan can be attacked relentlessly because it was "the launching pad" for 9/11, why has nothing been done about Munich and Germany where the actual enactors of the violence against the WTC and Pentagon were based prior to moving into the US?

Oh, yeah. The German government cooperates with the US....

"...There are different objectives to the US of foreign policy between Democrats and Republicans. Since WWII, the main thrust has been to democratize the world."

Under both democratic and republican administrations, the primary post-WWII propagandized rationale for intervention is democratization.The typical reason for public consumption is fighting commies and socialist regimes while the real reason is to install corporate puppet regimes, "banana republics" in Latin America, for example, run by United Fruit. Or various other regimes in Latin America, Africa, Asia, the balkan region of Europe where valuable resources can be controlled by U.S. corporate or geostrategic reasons. The interesting paradox is when countries elect leaders democratically who resist corporate tyranny and plundering then they are instantly labelled commies or socialists and the CIA instigates a coup, whether in Chile, Guatemala, Iran, etc, etc. Morales in Bolivia has had his country's water ruined by U.S. corporation Bechtel and so when he asserts his country's rights to sovereignty over its own resources he's labelled a "leftist". This means he's wrong from the U.S. global corporate hegemony perspective. The MSM corroborates the leftist balderdash to keep the masses stupid and oblivious to what's really going on there. Also, the "war on drugs" provides a pretext to put U.S. troops in misbehaving countries. Bolivia has its own wealthy landowning oligarchs in the media luna section and in 2008 a coup was attempted to restore U.S. corporate hegemony. But Morales nipped it in the bud and kicked out the U.S. ambassador, the de facto representative of corporate interests.
