4,000+ obsequious, flattering words to the members of a fellow pseudo democratic elected government that dutifully sends it warplanes against an African country - again!
London (CNN) -- "My Lord Chancellor, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Prime Minister, my Lords, and Members of the House of Commons:
I have known few greater honors than the opportunity to address the Mother of Parliaments at Westminster Hall. I'm told the last three speakers here have been The Pope, Her Majesty the Queen, and Nelson Mandela, which is either a very high bar or the beginning of a very funny joke."
Where is the "joke?" The joke is on us and the rest of the world, oppressed by Anglo-American military.
Note how even socialist presidents like Hugo Chavez, Evo Morales, and Fidel, exercise discretion and moderation when criticizing the black president of the world conquering superpower menacing their small nations.
Muammar Gaddafi, dodging assassination while his beautiful country is bombed by Obama forces, in his never to be answered letter to the president, expressed confidence "that the president , a son of Africa, would see the injustice in air strikes on Libya and change course,' and saw fit to wish Obama well in his coming election. Seems silly.
Obama's speech was the off heard upside down fatuous description of history, emphasizing the Anglo-American ganging up on the rest of the world. A lot more "jokes" were thrown in:
"And so part of our common tradition has expressed itself in a conviction that every citizen deserves a basic measure of security -- health care if you get sick,"
"...we stopped a massacre in Libya."
(Libya was using its oil wealth to provide fine free health care for its "every citizen.)"
We don't read and listen the speeches a U.S. president gives because he has any power but to get an indication of the investing elite might have in store for us.
