President Obama didn't initiate the "war of terror". That mindless assertion belongs to George W. Bush. But this president has continued and expanded that endless war, particularly with his expansion of the use of drones in Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq and Afghanistan.

The fact is there is no alternative this November between Barack Obama or any one of the Republican candidates now running "in the greatest competition of idiocy and ignorance that has ever been", the latter quote made last week by Fidel Castro.

Consider; when the truth comes from the words of a former dictator rather than the supposed leader of the free world, that fact alone reveals something fundamentally wrong.

And if most Americans fail to recognize that, it's not hard to imagine the eventual woe that will befall for us.
