Will the Messiah turn the other cheek at dying children?


The BBC reported last night that the ObamaMessiah is getting down to business.
Reporter Justin Webb could hardly contain his excitement.
Guantanomo Bay is to close, there's action on the economy and Iraq too.
Oh hail the ObamaMessiah everyone!
Meanwhile, over at ITN, came distressing coverage of the situation in Zimbabwe.
Children are starving, kids as young as two are being imprisoned, and the whole economic scene is getting even worse.
Surely, the ObamaMessiah could have a word with Captain Bob. Maybe even intervene, though i guess Nation building is so ancien regime now, even if it is finally working in Bastra now.
But The One could look at Zimbabwe and contact Mugabe, you know, man to man, leader to leader, and dare I say it, black leader to black leader; use their shared African connection.
I have yet to hear of any suggestion that the Messiah is interested in the deaths of blacks in Africa.
Far more important to relase muslim terrorists, where they may go out and kill again. Just look what some released inmates have been getting up to.
Is this what we want and expect from our new glorious world leader?

Haha. In a recent post, you tritely say:

"So yes, after the adulation of the Messiah, let us hope we can all move on, and treat future presidential candidates the same, whoever they are and judge them on the colour of their policies not the colour of their skin.

I guess that makes me more of a non-racist than the liberals having their orgasms today."

Your follow up here is great, very 'non-racist'...

"But The One could look at Zimbabwe and contact Mugabe <...> black leader to black leader; use their shared African connection.I have yet to hear of any suggestion that the Messiah is interested in the deaths of blacks in Africa."

In fact, I saw an excellent documentary on Swedish public service the other night entitled 'Senator Obama Goes To Africa' from 2006, I believe, in which he showed a fairly comprehensive understanding of both the geopolitical situation of the region and a real compassion and empathy with the plight of people in the region.

Basically, I reckon it's just not cricket to go 'Well, Obama might be following up on his campaign promises, but, umm, he's not following up on this issue which I think is important!'

What are your thoughts, DenMT, on the fuss over the first lady not wearing a ball frock designed by a black? Oh, and welcome back from holiday...

What a wanker that Obama is, eh? On this issue he should take a leaf out of hard-working George W. Bush's book and - er...

Funny you should mention George W. and his work in Africa PM.

They may not be George Bush's natural constituency but Rwanda's prostitutes have good things to say about him. So do poor South Africans abandoned by their quixotic government, and doctors across Africa who otherwise regard the American president as a walking crime against humanity.

As Bush arrives in Africa today at the start of a five-country tour he will be welcomed chiefly for an initiative which has gone largely unnoticed outside the continent but which has saved the lives of more than a million people with HIV.

The $15bn (£7.6bn) President's Emergency Plan for Aids Relief (Pepfar) is in its fifth year and has been hailed as a "revolution" that is transforming healthcare in Africa and has been praised as the most significant aid programme since the end of colonialism.

"This is the best thing that ever happened to the poor people I work with," said Edward Phillips, a Catholic priest overseeing the distribution of life-saving antiretroviral drugs (ARVs) in Nairobi, Kenya. "It's one of the few times I've seen US government money really reach down to the poorest of the poor. It's kept a hell of a lot of people alive."

Yes, ZenTiger, principled left-wingers like Bono who aren't partisan whores and Bush haters have given credit where credit is due.

The 'One' (& Co.) will get to Africa soon enough.
But first there is Afghanistan and Pakistan to take of so best he and CFR flunkie George Mitchell try and fully take over those countries first.

I don't doubt W was a generous charity giver for Africa Zen, but Fairfacts is busy right now whalin' on the sorry failure of US presidents to take out Mugabe, so W can get his lumps too.

Anonymous said...

DenMT, it seems like Fairfacts was just following the liberal consensus in taking a collective view on ethnic identity which seems to be the way of the left.
But yes, I see your point.
However, it would be a tragedy if Washington's Golden Child ignored the terror of a dictatorial ruler destroying an economy and the people there in Zimbabwe.
I belive Bishop Desmond Tutu is keen for an overseas armed internevrion.
Where is the UN when you them>
Or is the UN impotent and no good when they may have a purpose.

You're a cheeky so-and-so DenMT but good on you all the same.
The world has been hyping up Obama as something special, so I am sure he could use his magic on Mugabe.
How can it do any harm.
But yes, george Bush might have done the decent thing to remove him.
Surely somebosy must have some secret forces somewhere with time on their hands.
