When foreign democracies are aligned against the empire, it resorts to military coups, bribes, covert sponsorship of terrorist networks and every variety of fabricated propaganda imaginable. Obama's claim that the U.S. "has not, and will not" seek to push their choices onto foreign countries does not even pass the laugh test. I can't even imagine the reactions of educated and informed representatives in the UN General Assembly.

Obama also resorts to insinuation, trying to pretend that the Benghazi attack was an outgrowth of the "Innocence of Muslims" film protests, so as to avoid the actual motivations of those who assassinated the ambassador. In Bush-esque pairing of "9/11" and "Saddam" and "mushroom cloud," Obama associates the embassy attack with the movie protests, over and over.

There is no evidence that this film was a factor in the coordinated military attack in Benghazi. The evidence suggests a highly-planned, well-manned military assault worked out long before the movie trailer became an issue. One eyewitness reported no protest at all, and at about 9:30pm "125" well-armed members of a militia stormed the villa.

"And extremists understand this, because they have nothing to offer to improve the lives of people, violence is their only way to stay relevant.  They don't build.  They only destroy."

Says the man who has covertly supported the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (still on the State Dept. terrorist list!), and the Free Syrian Army terrorists, and has now taken the bold step of legitimizing the MEK terror cult, with its record of international terrorism against Iran and others.

"It is time to leave the call of violence and the politics of division behind. "

While at the start of the speech, Barack Obama proudly said:

"We intervened in Libya alongside a broad coalition..."

A violent and extremist coalition. More than 60,000 Libyans have been killed so far in this debacle.

"...and with the mandate of the United Nations Security Council."

This is a bald lie. There was no authorization to bomb ground targets in Libya.  This clear deception should be called out, as should the associated war crimes of that episode.

"And as we meet here, we again declare that the regime of Bashar al-Assad must come to an end..."

Again, a call for further violence.  Is the "Peace Laureate" hearing his own contradictory statements?

This request for war making authority coincides with well-documented covert U.S. support to militias, mercenaries and Al Qaeda connected terrorists committing massacres across Syria. The presence of these foreign terrorists in Syria has been the primary reason for the bloodshed to date. The Syrian government has been responding to armed gangs running amok and committing mass murders.

Iran

It doesn't take too long for Obama to get to the next big call for war, the main attraction of his "war is peace' illusioneering.

"In Iran, we see where the path of a violent and unaccountable ideology leads."

Obama does not mean Operation Ajax and the 1953 killing of democracy in Iran by the CIA. Funny how well phrases can fit so interchangeably.  Bush often said lines like this that could apply to U.S. policy in a different context.

"Iranian people have a remarkable and ancient history..."

Best to jump back to ancient, and then right up to the current situation with a notable gap in the middle of the time line. Training the illegitimate Shah's death squads and torturers gets an understandable omission.

"So let me be clear: America wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy, and we believe that there is still time and space to do so. But that time is not unlimited."

So this is another clear threat of war, a belligerent statement in violation of the UN's own Charter. At the podium of the UN itself.

"We respect the right of nations to access peaceful nuclear power, but one of the purposes of the United Nations is to see that we harness that power for peace."

And Obama controls 5,000 nuclear bombs, most of which are now being "modernized." Netanyahu controls hundreds of nuclear bombs, and Israel has never signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty in the first place. Iran controls exactly zero nuclear bombs, and yet they are the boogeyman, as Saddam Hussein previously controlled exactly zero nuclear bombs and was the boogeyman of his day.

"History shows that peace and progress come to those who make the right choices."

As defined by Washington, New York and London.  Small countries, which elect leaders considered the "wrong choices" -- history shows -- are attacked by Washington, by its proxy armies and overthrown.  There is the list of current official enemies.  There was also the coup in Honduras, Aristide in Haiti, the Sandinistas of Nicaragua. They made a coup attempt on Hugo Chavez in Venezuela as well.  In Chile we know of Pinochet's reign of terror after the people elected Allende, who was murdered. Similar fates have befallen the wrong democratically-elected ruler in nation after nation. One thing that all these violent overthrows had in common was that the bloody hands of the United States and often of its CIA were involved.
