Barack Obama today received huge cheers in Northern Ireland as he asked a room full teenagers: 'What's the craic?' . . . He said: ‘If towns remain divided - if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we can't see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden - that too encourages division and discourages cooperation.' He added: 'Peace is not just about politics. It is about attitudes, a sense of empathy and breaking down barriers in hearts.' ( emphasis my own)
Catholic schools create division?
President Obama (44) had a very bad attitude toward President George W. Bush (43) whom he and his surrogates deemed a war-mongering lout. President Obama succeeded President Bush and was handed the Nobel Peace Prize. He immediately went on a 'change your attitude' tour of the Middle East, which was immediately followed by the Arab spring which begat Libya and the Muslim Brotherhood's Egypt and the unchallenged slaughter of Coptic Christians . Obama's new UN Ambassador Samantha "Genocide" Power has yet to comment on their fate and you will find no comment of outrage from President Obama.
Belfast and Northern Ireland itself were shaped by attitudes - bad attitudes, apartheid attitudes, British Colonial attitudes. Bullets, bombs. barbed wire, tanks and RPGs competed for attention from 1969-New Millennium, but it was politics, dirty politics Bill Clinton style that brought about the Good Friday Agreement. Gerry Adams and Ian Paisley played ball in same manner that Mayor Richie Daley played ball with the Hyde Park Mafia in order to create President Obama and put Sinn Fein in Stormont so to speak. President Obama is only wrong when his mouth is moving.
America developed a very carefully crafted shift in attitude toward the war in Iraq and with help from Senators Dick Durbin and John Kerry American warriors became Nazi Wolf's Head monsters. Hollywood, Journolists and General Electric crafted the Obama Peace Narrative which would draw down the Iraq Surge and Surge up Afghanistahn and Raid Pakistahn and snuff Bin Laden.
Afghanistan became the Obama Good War. Obama Rolling Stoned the military leaders like McCrystal,
Petraeus and others who managed to violate PC rules like Captain of the USS Enterprise. Iraq was emptied of troops and Afghanistan stuffed. President Bush was Commander in Chief between 2001 nd 2009. Check the casualty count surge.
