Obama's God complex: America's Psychopathic President is clearly out of control by Yvonne Ridley
The fatal shooting of black teenager Trayvon Martin shocked a nation,
inspired tens of thousands to march for justice and even prompted the US
President to declare, "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon".
It took nearly six weeks for George Zimmerman, the Florida man accused
of killing the teenager, to be arrested and charged with second-degree
murder after enormous pressure from the public.
Zimmerman - the captain of a Neighbourhood Watch group - pursued Trayvon
because he said that he thought he was acting "suspicious" and "up to
no good". And that is exactly the same excuse used by President Barack
Obama as he justifies ticking off names on a "kill list" for drone
While Obama called on federal, state and local authorities to work
together as part of the investigation into the killing of Trayvon, just
who is going to investigate the President for his extra-judicial
killings? He is a man out of control, and while his predecessor
justified his actions with a catch-all "God told me to do it", this
president thinks he is God, making decisions about who should live and
who should die.
If he was the head of a banana republic the UN
Security Council would be meeting as I write to bring about regime
change, with the International Criminal Court on standby with a writ to
charge Obama with war crimes.
But the USA is not a banana republic - not yet, anyway - and Obama is
the head of a superpower and supposed to be the most powerful man in the
world; the man who in 2009 went to Cairo and convinced us all that he
was going to engage positively with the Muslim world from the Middle
East to Asia.
Looking back at that historic day all I can visualise is a fox being
heralded and saluted by his victims as he walks up the ramp into the
We don't know how many people Barack Obama has ordered to be killed, but according to the New York Times
he has "placed himself at the helm of a top secret 'nominations'
process to designate terrorists for kill or capture, of which the
capture part has become largely theoretical".
There is huge hypocrisy in the media and from the so-called liberal left
when it comes to this particular White House incumbent. The tame
journalists who make up the Washington press pack ignore the fact that
several times a month around 100 members of the government's sprawling
national security apparatus gather, by secure video teleconference, to
discuss who should live and who should die.
This murderous secret nomination process was the invention of the
Democrat Obama Administration, just as the Democrat Bill Clinton
Administration brought kidnap and extraordinary rendition flights to the
world. Republicans must look on enviously at how the Democrats get away
with breaking international laws and conventions without being
It is almost beyond belief that this kill list has been
sanctioned by a man who won the Nobel Peace Prize and ran his US
Presidential campaign on a human rights platform. Remember Obama's
declaration that he wanted to close down Guantanamo, end torture, stop
secret renditions and raise the bar in fairness and justice? He clearly doesn't.
In Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan, Obama's killing machines are not even
clinical or always on target; thousands of innocent men, women and
children have been taken out by his drone attacks. Their blood is on the
US President's hands, and even his own people are sickened by the
hypocrisy and double standards coming out of the White House.
America's outgoing Ambassador to Pakistan, Cameron Munter, a man with
more backbone and guts than his predecessor, has revealed that he
regards the drone strike-driven policy of his government unacceptable.
Rather tellingly, he has complained to colleagues that "he didn't
realise his main job was to kill people".
This was revealed in another article published this week in the New York
Times, one of the few US media titles finally to adopt a critical
stance over Obama's foreign policies. I can only assume that Obama's
killing spree has gone largely unchecked by ordinary Americans because
they haven't a clue what this president is doing in their name. This is
sad, because Americans do care about justice and fair play; they showed
this when they rallied and demonstrated after the killing of black
teenager Trayvon Martin by a man who thought he was "up to no good".
Trayvon's killer will now stand trial for his actions and his fate will
be decided by a judge and jury looking at openly presented evidence.
That is real justice, not the shoot and kill version which is coming to
define Obama's presidency.
Many of us who cheered when the first non-white president moved into the
White House were hoping for a new era of peace and justice, but we have
been conned. The true Barack Obama is an out of control
psychopathic killer with a loaded God complex, and he's running America.
This makes him the most dangerous man in the world as well as the most
powerful. And that should make every right-minded person in America and beyond shudder with disbelief.
