America's wars continue. Obama plans new ones. Their human toll alone is unconscionable. The fiscal one increases exponentially.
Target countries suffer most. They're ravaged and destroyed. Millions of lives are lost. Millions more are injured and/or displaced. Vital services go begging. Essential infrastructure isn't rebuilt.

Imperial priorities matter most. War crimes continue. Daily killing persists. Occupation is permanent. America arrives to stay.
Torture, ill-treatment and other human rights violations go unmentioned. Nations become cutthroat capitalist laboratories. Plunder on a grand scale persists.
Ordinary people are entirely shut out. Western corporate predators take full advantage. War criminals go unpunished. Obama's got more death and destruction in mind. It bears repeating. Humanity may not survive his second term.
