    I searched for another thread that could be relevant to this topic but I didn't find one.

    This would be a place to share thoughts, articles, and information regarding Corporatism and War Mongering specifically relating to President Obama and his Administration.

    Something to get the thread started:

    Lupe Fiasco Calls Obama a "Terrorist" | NBC Chicago

    "The biggest terrorist is Obama, in the United States of America. So, for me, it's like...I'm trying to fight the terrorism that's actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists."

    UAV drone attacks murdering innocent civilians in Pakistan would classify President Obama as a war criminal. When did we declare war on Pakistan? Or anywhere else since WWII for that matter... What's even worse is that Obama's BFF manufactures the UAV's doing the murdering!

  4. Sure, but why a pic of President Obama bowing down to the king of Saudi Arabia have to do with him being a corporatist? Cultural respect is one thing that helps international relationships.

    The Saudi's deserve NO respect. They have one of the worst regimes in the entire middle east.

    The Saudi's and the US have had quite a corporatist and war mongering relationship since the 1970's, especially after the breakdown of the Bretton Woods agreement in Aug of 1971. Why should the dollar remain the reserve currency of the world if there is no longer a semi-gold standard backing the dollar?

    King Saud succeeded to the throne on his father's death in 1953. However, by the early 1960s an intense rivalry between the King and his half-brother, Prince Faisal emerged, fueled by doubts in the royal family over Saud's competence. As a consequence, Saud was deposed in favor of Faisal in 1964. The major event of King Faisal's reign was the 1973 oil crisis, when Saudi Arabia, and the other Arab oil producers, tried to put pressure on the US to withdraw support from Israel through an oil embargo. Faisal was assassinated in 1975 by his nephew, Prince Faisal bin Musaid.

    Since then they've been a puppet of ours...or we've been a puppet of theirs...who knows.

    According to research by Dr. David Spiro, in 1974 the Nixon administration negotiated assurances from Saudi Arabia to price oil in dollars only, and invest their surplus oil proceeds in U.S. Treasury Bills. In return the U.S. would protect the Saudi regime.

    Saudi has the largest oil supply of all OPEC countries. House of Saud and the US Government has had very close ties since the 1970's. They agreed they would never sell oil for anything other than US Dollars. Since the agreements of 1971 and 1973, OPEC oil is exclusively quoted in US dollars. This created a permanent demand for dollars on the international exchange markets.

    The US in return would keep the House of Saud in power. There has been some blowback from this, obviously...

    More recent, and corporatist related:

    Prince Alwaleed, a nephew of Saudi King Abdullah and one of the richest men in the world, runs Kingdom Holding Co., a giant investment fund that owns large stakes in News Corp. and Citigroup Inc. News Corp. owns Dow Jones & Co. and the Wall Street Journal.

    Citigroup received quite a bit of bailout money as they are a large shareholder of the NY Federal Reserve Bank (see pic of Tim Geithner in OP).

  8. Subscribed.

    Why am I not surprised that out of all MJU's links, you chose to comment on the one picture of Obama bowing to the Saudi prince.
     
  9. Its the only thing i disagree with him on, i mean using a picture of president Obama bowing to another countries leader/king as a negative. Why? There is such things called respecting a nation's cultural.
     

  10. meh...fuck their backwards, misogynistic, superstitious culture...for that matter fuck our backwards, warmongering, imperialistic culture....

    never understood people who say "we have to respect other cultures". i don't even respect my culture, why the fuck should i give two shits about theirs

    The headline above it talks about an arms deal with Saudi Arabia. You interpreted the bowing itself as the negative thing being portrayed (probably has something to do with all the media coverage about it), but I think the point was that Obama is on good terms with the Saudis and their fairly oppressive regime. I agree that it is a footnote and not that "negative", but people used to post pictures of Bush with the Saudis all the time as a negative. I somehow doubt you disagreed with them.
     
  12. Please.

    Why is Obama a corporatist war monger?

    If keeping America safe from an WMD attack is your idea of a corporatist war monger then I guess we have very different points of view.
     
  13. That picture of Obama bowing to the Saudi's, dude, they're playing a game of craps. Obama's just trying to pick up the dice, and his loot.
     

  14. :poke:

    You are 17,600 times more likely to die from heart disease, 1,048 times more likely to die from a car accident, 404 times more likely to die in a fall, 12 times more likely to die from accidental suffocation in bed, 9 times more likely to choke to death on your own vomit, and 8 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist.

    Since it's summer time, you are 6 times more likely to die from hot weather than from a terrorist attack.

    We certainly do have different points of view. ;)
     

  15. Yeah, and you can thank the CIA and our military from keeping those numbers so low. Besides, if I get struck by lightning and die, it doesn't mean shit. Jumbo jets flying into skyscrapers, or a nuke going off in a major metropolis does. It only takes one time.;)

    Thank you Obama for killing terrorists.

    Even if there were a 9/11 attack EVERY THREE YEARS it still wouldn't amount to anything "significant".

    Just hope you don't end up on the President assassination list, it's a slippery slope you believe in - the murder of humans at the order of another human, without a trial, or any defense really...scary.

    I think the history books will look back on to us in the same light it looked at other war mongers (Hitler, Stalin, Mao, etc).


    It makes me sick that so many American blindly support killing, murdering, and war on the word of sociopaths in Washington DC. USA! USA! USA! That's patriotism, if you don't like it...get out!

  17. Yeah. Riiiiiiight.

    Guess you haven't figured it all out yet.

    Keep searching. You are good at it. Your conclusions however...

    Please, read at least one article.

    Libya: Connect the dots

    Paving and creating opportunities for privileged businesses to establish their presense in the economies of other countries, by use of 'humanitarian' bombs.

    Yet, many sadly believe this is truly about protecting the people of Libya safe (or killing terrorists) when it is simply about establishing a US gov't friendly, or puppet, regime to do business with.

    And, seldom do these military operations serve the interests of the public because they are executed with the intent of only serving the interests of a few at the expense of everyone else.
     
  19. should Michelle Obama dress up in a Burka when they visit muslim countries.. out of respect for their culture?
