Is Obama the Answer To Yemen Bombings? `by Internet Tough Guy

Obama supporters claim that he can overcome all of the hatred of foreigners toward the U.S.

If elected, perhaps he can start with Yeman where a suicide bomb attack outside the gates of the U.S. Embassy killed 10 security staff and civilians. Apparently six attackers also died according to CNN., an official told CNN. Yemen's Embassy spokesman Mohammed al-Basha claimed the explosion was caused by a suicide bomber wearing an explosive vest. What leads to further distrust is the fact that the ensuing gun battle was between attackers in police uniform and the Embassy security staff. In such conflicts, it is hard to decide who is on what side.
A second car apparently exploded before it reached a second protective barrier. No U.S. Embassy employees were killed. Trev Mason, an eye witness tells what he saw here: Listen to witness

Yemen is the ancestral home of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. The U.S. State Department has expected violence from Islamic extremists in Yemen. Specifically, there have been warnings "about possible attacks by extremist individuals or groups against U.S. citizens, facilities, businesses and perceived interests." Violence has become part of life in Yemen. In April there was a rocket attack on a residential area consisting of Western oil workers. Previously in March, three mortar rounds landed near the Embassy. Authorities struggle with Al Qaeda affiliated groups. The perception is that Al Qaeda related groups are free to impose their will on others. The problem is that perception too often becomes reality.

The naive think Obama can cure all of these evils. However, too many supporters have forgotten that he has to win an election first. Only then will the country find out if he is the foreign policy Messiah his supporters claim him to be. Personally, I suspect the "great facilitator" will be the "great capitulater." But as one Obama supporter explained to me, "Well that is all right, as long as we don't give up."

Good story Tough Guy.

L.P. surprised you published something that could be construed as political.

Personally I think that if Elected, Obama will offer Al Qaeda Florida in exchange for agreeing to "leave us alone." A month later when violence returns, he will "really mean it" when he gives them Georgia and Texas as a piece offering. Finally, as his last resort, he will give them the east and west coast but they have to agree to leave the midwest alone for at least 20 days of every month.A lot of damage can be done in four years!

If you are not for Obama you are either racist or stupid.

Which is it Ralph?

I say we let Obama go over to Yeman and spend a few months...

Maybe he will decide to stay over there permanently...

Ms Calabaza said...

IMHO, Obama would be disastrous to our country. Have you read this?

If you want more info, hop over to my blog. I wouldn't plug it, except for the fact that we need to get the word out. The media needs to stop focusing on how many snowmachines Todd Palin owns and let the country know what's happening. This has absolutely nothing to do with Legal Pub and if any of you disagree or just want to chat, please do so at my site.

Thanks LP,

Go Ms. C! I agree Obama is baad news for this country.

But Obama did not cause the bombing of Yemen, Osama did! Give Obama a chance to get it worked out. Negotiation is the future of peace.

Obama's not the answer, I am:

I concentrate on solutions for the problems.

Unemployment? Illegal imigration?

Easy. Employ the unemployed currently in this country to dig a moat the length of the Mexican border.

Flooding in New Orleans?

Truck the dirt from the moat to New Orleans to raise the level of the levies.

Aligators eating people in Florida?

Transplant the alligators from the populated areas of florida and place the alligators in the moat along the Mexican border.

Why can't we have the Ten Commandments in Court houses?

Because posting: 'Thou Shalt Not Steal,' 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery,' and 'Thou Shall Not Lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians... creates a hostile work environment.

Return the power back to the people. Elect McCain and hope her retires early in office and Palin takes over and runs the country with some good old fashion common sense!

Sound like you're speaking Palin-ese.

state of nearly 13 million people, sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you are woefully inexperienced.

However, if you spend 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the

Hillary said...

You go Secret, treating Chelsey that was was unfair.Now for the wake up news! Obama leads McCain among likely voters by 47 percent to 45 percent, within the poll's 3.1 percent margin of error. He gained ground in the last month among independent and women voters and on the question of who could best manage the faltering U.S. economy.Get used to it folks!

Lady de Rothschild used to be a Hillary Clinton supporter, earning the designation "HillRaiser" by helping to raise more than $100,000.00 for Hillary Clinton's historic presidential bid.

Despite Hillary's pleas to supporters to vote for Barack Obama, whose positions are similar to Hillary. Despite McCain's mockery of Hillary (and all that she stands for), a few of her biggest donors just can't bring themselves to vote for Barack Obama.

Update: Approximately 25 suspected al Qaeda-linked militants were reportedly arrested Thursday. Unfortunately, after such attacks, the local goverment brings in the "usual suspects," and no real responsible parties are ever punished. Fortunately, six attackers, including one wearing a suicide vest, were killed in the incident. No U.S. Embassy employees were killed or wounded.

If you really want to understand Obama's background, read this WSJ story online.

The above site gave me this info:

From 1995 to 1999, Obama led an education foundation called the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), and remained on the board until 2001. The group poured more than $100 million into the hands of community organizers and radical education activists. The article claims that Mr. Ayers and his cohorts were involved in the bombing of the Pentagon and Barack Obama's first run for the Illinois State Senate was launched at a 1995 gathering at Mr. Ayers's home.

Sen. Obama dismissed Mr. Ayers as just "a guy who lives in my neighborhood," and "not somebody who I exchange ideas with on a regular basis."

The Chicago Annenberg Challenge was created ostensibly to improve Chicago's public schools. The CAC's basic functioning has long been known, because its annual reports, evaluations and some board minutes were public.
The CAC's agenda flowed from Mr. Ayers's educational philosophy, which called for infusing students and their parents with a radical political commitment, and which downplayed achievement tests in favor of activism. In the mid-1960s, Mr. Ayers taught at a radical alternative school, and served as a community organizer in Cleveland's ghetto.

CAC translated Mr. Ayers's radicalism into practice. Instead of funding schools directly, it required schools to affiliate with "external partners," which actually got the money. Proposals from groups focused on math/science achievement were turned down. Instead CAC disbursed money through various far-left community organizers, such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (or Acorn).

CAC also funded programs designed to promote "leadership" among parents. Ostensibly this was to enable parents to advocate on behalf of their children's education. In practice, it meant funding Mr. Obama's alma mater, the Developing Communities Project, to recruit parents to its overall political agenda. CAC records show that board member Arnold Weber was concerned that parents "organized" by community groups might be viewed by school principals "as a political threat." Mr. Obama arranged meetings with the Collaborative to smooth out Mr. Weber's objections.

The Obama campaign has cried foul when Bill Ayers comes up, claiming "guilt by association." Yet the issue here isn't guilt by association; it's guilt by participation. As CAC chairman, Mr. Obama was lending moral and financial support to Mr. Ayers and his radical circle. That is a story even if Mr. Ayers had never planted a single bomb 40 years ago.

Here is m take on our so called leadership from the left:

Jimmy Carter, you helped foster the Islamic Nazi movement. You threw the Shah under the bus, welcomed the Ayatollah home, and then lacked the spine to confront the terrorists when they took our embassy and our people hostage. You may be a nice man but you were a scaredy cat commander-in-chief.

Bill Clinton, you played with Monica Lewinsky while the terrorists were declaring war on us. You got us into a fight in Somalia and then when the going got tough you had us run away. Your responses to the USS Cole and the First Trade Center Bombing and Our Embassy Bombings exemplified weakness. Terrorists grew bolder, and showed us who was boss on 9/11/2001.

John Kerry, distorted the truth about American Soldiers in Vietnam. Your life and military service seems more fictional than fact. You have unjustly accused our military of terrorizing women and children in Iraq. You called Iraq the wrong war, wrong place, wrong time, the same words you used to describe Vietnam. You are misleading this country into running away from Iraq and abandon the Iraqis just as you advocated with the Vietnamese.

John Murtha, you said we can't win militarily in Iraq . You accused United States Marines of cold-blooded murder without proof. You're not a Marine, sir. You're a phony and a disgrace.

Dick Durbin, you accused our Soldiers at Guantanamo of being Nazis, tenders of Soviet style gulags, Now you want to abandon the Iraqis. History was not a good teacher for you, was it? See Dick run.

Ted Kennedy, for days on end you held poster-sized pictures from Abu Ghraib in front of television cameras. Did you see the news, Teddy? The Islamic Nazis demonstrated another beheading for you. If you truly supported our troops, you would show the world poster-sized pictures of that atrocity. Your legislation stripping support from the South Vietnamese led to a communist victory there.

Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Carl Levine, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Russ Feingold, Hillary Clinton, Pat Leahy, Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, the Hollywood Leftist morons, etc must I go on?

Every time you stand in front of television cameras and claim that we went to war because our President lied, you give the Islamic butchers - the same ones that tortured and mutilated American Soldiers - cause to think that we will run away again.

American news media, the New York Times particularly. Each time you publish stories about national defense secrets and our intelligence gathering methods, you become united with the sub-human terrorists that torture and mutilate American Soldiers. You can't strike up the courage to publish cartoons, but you can help Al Qaeda destroy our country.

Collective Stupidity can destroy us. Self-serving politics and terrorist abetting news scoops are more important to you than our national security or the lives of innocent civilians and Soldiers. There is blood on your hands.
