It speaks volumes that Obama brazenly nominated defense contractor Raytheon lobbyist William Lynn as Deputy Secretary of Defense, already waiving his own policy of not nominating industry lobbyists with conflicting interests for positions in his cabinet. So much for the "hope" to "change" the D.C. insider revolving door of military/corporate/government collusion and their perpetual war influence peddling.

Raytheon designs and manufactures some of the planet's most barbarous devices of death and destruction that have killed hundreds of thousands of civilians and made Lynn a very rich man. Raytheon makes cluster bombs that explode on playgrounds in children's faces long after they've been dropped, the Patriot anti-missile system, the Tomahawk cruise missile, Paveway laser-guided bombs, and the errant "smart bomb' that missed its target in Baghdad in 2003 and killed at least 62 Iraqi civilians. Oops.

The Pentagon rewards Raytheon with tens of billions of our tax dollars each year to make these and newer, more lethal WMD. Lynn has been on Raytheon's payroll since 2002. That this nomination hasn't sent up blinding red flags and caused progressives to scream out in protest is beyond me. As long as the American Idle allow such conspicuous and flagrant travesties of justice and crimes against the peace, we, the sheeple, will continue to get exactly the government we deserve.

While Obama is making an honest attempt to deal with our many domestic crises, his foreign policy is nothing but a continuation of US imperialistic, genocidal misadventures masquerading as "homeland security" that are in actuality weaponized offenses designed to control as many of the world's resources as we can get our grubby little hands on.

It is this material aggression and the sense of American exceptionalism for which Obama must now be held accountable. Hey -- he wanted the job! Our job is to fire him if he commits crimes in the process of perpetuating the wanton greed of American empire and its supremacist, bigoted, unsustainable way of life. He has already committed the ultimate crime. Just ask the parents of those Pakistani children.

We must reach across the aisle, condemn the continuing US murder of civilians on their own soil, confront our racist attitude that our lives are worth more than theirs, and do what is right. Impeach Obama and stop the mass murder of civilians! And then continue to immediately impeach every commander in chief that commits crimes against humanity. America will be safer for it, and fewer veterans will commit suicide, and more money will be available to help the tens of millions of Americans falling into the craters of capitalism's collapse (half of your federal tax dollars go directly to the Pentagon), and the world's people won't hate us so much, and precious, brown-eyed babies won't get blown to smithereens in our name, and we might sleep a little better.
