Barack Obama is currently on tour for his new book, “A Promised Land,’ and as you would expect the interviews are nothing but fluff in which they bring up “hard-hitting” questions about his “historic presidency.” Uncle Hotep mentioned on the Thanksgiving episode of “Hoteps Been Told You,” that the only reason he bought the book was to read anything about hid middle eastern wars. I’m sure there is no detail in there and phrases like “tough decisions” and “human rights” will be abundant. We should never forget the wars that Obama not only continued with vigor, but the ones he started (Yemen, Syria, Libya).
I have a strong suspicion that a lot of people, especially those who know “war is a racket,” may be tempted to make statements such as, “you know, I’m gonna miss Trump.” And most of that is going to be that he pushed the culture war against the radical, “evangelical” Left. While it was nice to see someone take them on constantly – as someone who believes they are violent psychopaths – we must never forget his record when it comes to foreign policy. The Pentagon only began keeping a record of annual bombs dropped on Afghanistan in 2006 , and according to Centcom, more bombs were dropped in 2019 than any year since records have been kept.
