Webster defines Blowback as this: an unforeseen and unwanted effect, result, or set of repercussions.
Regardless of what you want to call it, the Obama administration is conducting an illegal invasion of Pakistan. Without Congressional consent, President Obama has been given the free rein to commit the United States to any military action that it deems fit. Let us not forget that Pakistan is the same country that George W. Bush paid off by borrowing billions from China; a debt that will never be paid off.
At this very moment the conflict in Afghanistan is costing the American taxpayer to the tune of over $57,000 a minute. Also, at this very moment the United States government is “tightening the noose” on Iran which will lead to ramifications that will be near impossible to turn back from. Another invasion, another occupation, more debt on our economy and the American people.
President Obama has been criticized for a mounting debt which will soon exceed $14 trillion dollars – either by way of health care reform or some other means, it will reach that plateau. When that happens every American will owe $45,000. This pales in comparison that regardless of what party is in the White House these measures stay the same.
Americans who voted for Obama have lost heart because the change we have been promised wasn’t change at all, but a continuation of the Bush policies. The Obama hater – Bush lovers – whatever you want to call them are being lead by a very skilled level of propagandists that get paid millions for their service. Lead by these pundits, they are forced to believe in a falsehood of American politics.
But here is the last word – like I have said before, everyone wants something done in the Middle East, but no one wants to pay the tab. At the rate of spending over a trillion dollars a year on our overseas presence, it is impossible to fund the entire thing with taxation. Thusly, borrowing is needed.
As reported by the International News in January U.S. forces in Afghanistan carried out twelve across the border invasions of Pakistan. Ten of them went wrong. Out of those twelve missions conducted by Predator drones; 123 civilians were killed while only three al-Qaeda leaders were killed. Does anyone doubt that the victims families of the innocent slain will grow to hate the United States?
