Our International Shame: The 5th Fleet: Quit Disgracing the US and Get the Hell Out — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
Now let me get this straight: President Obama has to keep letting his hired thugs murder pro-democracy demonstrators because Bahrain is “home to our 5th Fleet.” Torturing doctors, reporters, students, all that is cool too, I guess.
And in Yemen, there’s a Muslim American who’s suspected of inspiring a fake bomb. So, then, Obama must allow US money to pay his goons to Torture and murder peaceful citizens and crush democracy there, right?
Yemen wasn’t even a real country, it was imposed by the US. That’s why it has secessionist movements in both North and South Yemen, they were two different countries until 20 years ago. They are ethnically and culturally quite different from each other.
The 5th Fleet needs to be in the Persian Gulf, we’re told, to help remove Oil that rightfully belongs in the ground, but if it’s out of the ground, it belongs to people in the Middle East, not us.
The 5th Fleet was formed in 1944. The United Nations was founded in 1945. One UN International Law removed from the charter before final ratification was the passage that would have made Slavery a Crime against Humanity. That provision was taken out because of the prevalence of Slavery on the Arabian Peninsula and in the Persian Gulf. They decided that where we get our Oil trumps whether or not Slavery is a Crime.
Despite the fact that the UN passed on performing its duty, Slavery IS a Crime against Humanity, one that Obama and the 5th Fleet carry out to our eternal disgrace.
And those who lie about being “Liberal” or “Progressive” or “favoring Human Rights” sit around calling President Obama “our candidate” or “our crook,” wimpishly claiming that Obama’s brand of brutality and Fascism is the only thing that can save us from the even worse Fascism favored by stupid people who believe that dinosaurs walked with humans.
Most people only think about the Slaves when they see the camel races. That was an easy fix. Now robots have replaced the Slave jockeys, tiny boys from Darfur, Bangladesh, Pakistan, or India. Now that the camel jockeys are out of sight, Slavery is ignored. The Bahrain Government claimed it was ending Slavery two years ago…
…then six months later, Russia busted a Slave shipment:
If you are an American, please examine the Slavery paradigm that Pres. Obama and the 5th Fleet are endorsing. As you’ll find out if you read on, more than half the people in Bahrain are Slaves, most of them from India. Most non-Slaves are Shiites, and thereby face discrimination from the Sunni minority. But most Sunnis are not in the tribe of the ruling dynasty, so they too face discrimination. (If you’re a Democrat, you might want to read these links later, or not at all, they’re pretty sickening.)
And now the Obama thugs are massacring the pro-democracy demonstrators, as well as Torturing doctors trying to treat their victims and journalists trying to expose their murderous barbarism. Some of those teargassed students will never recover.
I can think of a couple of reasons why the US supports Slavery and civilian massacres. One is Robert Gates, and the other is George Mitchell. Secretary of Defense Gates is heavily invested in Oil, and the US Military is by far the biggest buyer of petroleum in the world. If Gates tried to make peace, he’d lose money. But don’t worry, there’s not much chance of that. If the US Military switched to clean fuel, Russia would lose power and Iran would go broke – the only way Iran can afford to work on its Nuclear program at all is if the US Military keeps buying Oil.
George Mitchell is President Obama’s Middle East “Peace” Envoy. His business partner was convicted of Bribery in Azerbaijan, trying to get that country’s Oil. Think of the enormous dishonesty it took for President Obama to hire two men which such flagrant Conflicts of Interest over Oil, and then to install them between US and peace.
