The Disastrous Consequences Of Disastrous Policies

  • First Obama created ISIS out of the cesspool he left in Libya, reducing Africa's wealthiest nation to rubble, because Gaddafi was too independent of Washington's dictates. Then he lied about Assad because Assad was also too independent. Obama helped fund, train, arm and support ISIS terrorist brigades and their affiliates - along with his coalition of terror, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Israel, Qatar, Emirates - even as he publicly pretended to be fighting them in Iraq and Syria. It wasn't until Russia entered Syria and wasted ISIS, that Obama and his fellow terrorist sponsors flew into a panic.

  • Four Myths About Obama's War on ISIS

Mousumi Roy,, 2015 | Recently ISIS has done a brutal attack on the people of France (Parris). This attack is a dark spot on the face of humanity. I condemn this shameful act of ISIS. When we talk about the condemnation of this attack then we must condemn the all kinds of religious fundamentalism all over the world whether they are in Islam, Christianity, Sikhism or Hinduism. This kinds of attacks also raises some questions in our mind that why all this happen?

If we would trace the history of western supremacy then we must not forget the history of imperialism, which is the main culprit behind all these kinds of attacks. The genocide of humanity was also done by the western countries (imperialism) whenever they invades in the third world countries for the exploitation of their natural resources. Various wars and attacks were waged against the people of the third world countries (TWC’s). For example, According to Guenter Lewy’s estimation, in 1978 total deaths were 1313000 in North and Southern Vietnam during the 1965-1974 period in which the US was most engaged in the Vietnam war. (1) And an another data said that Vietnamese military and civilian deaths ranged from 1.5 million to 3.8 million, with the US led campaign in Cambodia resulting in 600000 to 800000 deaths, and Laotian war mortality estimated at about 1 million.(2) After the 9/11 attacks; a later study, published in 2011, estimated that approximately 500000 Iraqis had died as a result of the conflict since the US invasion in Iraq. (3) An analytically conservative Council on Foreign relations assesses that 500 drone strikes outside of Iraq and Afghanistan have killed 3,674 people.(4)

Let’s listen to Bill Maher: On Paris, religion and race, Maher walks a fascinating and tricky line

He's not always right, but Maher's posing provocative questions, and answering them with intelligence, consistency.

Sunday, Nov 15, 2015 | Bill Maher has made his mark as the comedian who refuses to toe the party line—any party’s line.  He has come under attack by both the right and the left for his positions. This week’s show exemplifies his unflinching desire to muddy the waters of extremist thinking and get viewers to ask tough questions and refuse pre-packaged scripts.

He hit the spotlight after September 11 when he rejected the idea that the 9/11 attackers were cowards. Talking with conservative pundit Dinesh D’Souza, Maher stated: “We have been the cowards. Lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away. That’s cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building. Say what you want about it. Not cowardly.” The comment cost him his ABC show. But he soon landed back on his feet with HBO for “Real time with Bill Maher.”
