"Obamaism is taking form. Its themes are nonviolence, youth-driven social media as engines of change and limiters of autocratic brutality, and the universality of those rights listed in Cairo."
Queries for Roger:
Why did it take so long for Obama, who in the past was photographed shaking the hand of Qaddafi with a toothy grin, to call for the Libyan tyrant's ouster? As known to the entire world and as recently acknowledged by Libya's former foreign minister, Qaddafi was personally responsible for approving the Lockerbie bombing.
Why did Obama refuse to support the Iranian dissidents who took to the streets of Tehran in 2009? A mere word of support for the dissidents from Obama and the tyrannical Ahmadinejad regime, responsible for the brutal persecution of women, homosexuals, Baha'is, Kurds, Sunni Muslims and political dissidents, might have crumbled.
Why has Obama refused to criticize human rights abuses in China?
Why did Obama show the Dalai Lama out a side door of the White House, where the garbage was waiting to be collected?
Why has Obama ignored genocide in the Congo?
Why has Obama forgotten Darfur since becoming president?
Why did Obama reach out to Myanmar, which has been under military rule since 1962?
Why did Obama lock hands with Hugo Chavez, who has actively eroded freedom of the press and freedom of the judiciary in Venezuela?
Why has Obama chosen to renege on his promise to acknowledge as president the mass slaughter of Armenians by the Turks as genocide?
Most devastating, Obama continues to pursue a meaningless war in Afghanistan that has resulted in more than 2,200 coalition deaths, is costing the U.S. billions of dollars needed for education and economic revival, and is causing countless numbers of civilian casualties. Is this also part of the Obama's "theme of nonviolence" and the "universality of rights" recited by the president in Cairo?
If you ask me, Cohen is a "lucky man" to be able to publish this claptrap.
