This Is Change?

‘What has been is what will be,and what has been done is what will be done,and there is nothing new under the sun.’  ~ Ecclesiastes 1:9

As I predicted in this space during the primaries (which is a lifetime in political terms) Obama has not lived up to the peace candidate that so many wanted him to be–and that he promoted himself to be.

I also predicted that he would expand the GWOT in Afghanistan and probably into Pakistan.  I have to admit that, while I was not surprised that he has done just that, I was taken somewhat aback that he did it on the fourth day of his presidency.

Missiles fired from suspected US drones killed at least 15 people inside Pakistan today, the first such strikes since Barack Obama became president and a clear sign that the controversial military policy begun by George W Bush has not changed.

And, as usual, a number of the dead include women and children.

Meet the new boss.  Same as the old boss.  Indeed.

  1. Have you seen the controversy over his appointment to assistant Secretary of Defense? Also not surprising, and yet because of the quick timing, surprising.

    (He’s been all about cracking down on lobbyists in government positions, and yet, this guy he’s nominating was a major lobbyist. Oops.)
