Obama's Evil

“The evil that is in the world always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence, if they lack understanding. On the whole, men are more good than bad; that, however, isn't the real point. But they are more or less ignorant, and it is that we call vice or virtue; the most incorrigible vice being that of an ignorance which fancies it knows everything and therefore claims for itself the right to kill.” - Albert Campus: The Plague, Modern Library Edition, p. 120

Obama has bombed seven or eight countries. He has special operations forces in over a hundred country. He did not close Guantanamo. He has sent troops in Afghanistan, Iraq and now Syria. He has helped destroy Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and turned a blind eye to the destruction in Yemen by our ally, Saudi Arabia. Obama has a meeting every Tuesday to decide who to drone bomb to death next. He has said that he is pretty good at killing people. He is correct. 

Obama has restored relations with Cuba and gotten a treaty with Iran over nuclear weapons program, but that is it as far as his foreign policy achievements go.

It is all very sickening.
