Winter In America -by Gill Scott Heron

and now an update on Bahrain -US Supports the Convictions of medical staff who took care of injured and wounded during the uprising in Bahrain- Medical personnel during any conflict are permitted and even expected to treat anyone injured or wounded not just those on the side of the government.
But according to Hilary Clinton and Obama Bahrain's officials have the right to target Medical staff who treated protesters.
But this goes against all international laws and the Geneva conventions but as we now know Obama and other American leaders refuse to adhere to the Geneva Conventions, International agreements on torture or dealing with enemy combatants -even the Nuremberg rulings have been tossed out the window by President Obama and former President Bush and VP Dick Cheney.

Don't hold your breath waiting for Obama to take on Wall Street as we see in this video from Bahrain this is the sort of brutal regime Obama et al support wholeheartedly.
For his ignoring of the oppression in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia alone Obama should have his Nobel Peace Prize taken away-he does not deserve it -he is no less a war monger and supporter of friendly dictators than George W. Bush or President Bill Clinton.

Does Obama or Hillary Clinton support Bahrain's forces and Saudi forces burning protesters alive ???
Has he and Mayor Bloomberg have similar plans for those protesting on Wall Street or in other cities in America.

Riot Police Try To Burn Protesters Alive - Bahrain - Part 1

Video shot in Sanabis village near Manama, Bahrain on September 23, 2011 shows police leaving a home after chasing protesters inside and setting fire to it by throwing sound grenades near an opened cooking gas container according to eyewitnesses in the home. The protesters tried to escape through a garage when police officers outside tried to trap them in. Once the protesters managed to get out of the garage police fired rubber bullets at them from a close range and beat one of the youth on the street. At least seven of the protesters are being treated for third degree burns caused by the fire.

Later, when people from Sanabis were fighting to put out the flames, riot police again attacked them.

and now back to Wall Street:

#TakeWallStreetOccupy Wall Street - Buffalo Springfield - For What it's Worth

US Activists take on Wall Street -Al Jazeera-Sept. 29, 2011.

The super rich and their supporters don't care about the average citizen in America or elsewhere. They are driven by profits and greed . They take bail out money from the US government which is just another form of blackmail money or another form of welfare for the rich.
Meanwhile these business people make record profits but offer nothing to help out the US government after stealing billions from the US government by way of tax breaks and hand outs from the government . These billionaires are unsympathetic to the trials and tribulations and fears of the average citizen who has or might have the banks foreclose on their or those who have lost their jobs or who in order to keep their jobs work for much lower wages just barely above the poverty line .

" Wall Street Protests Spread: The Occupy Wall Street protests are spreading to other cities " Infozine ,Sept. 30, 2011

Washington, Nomi Prins ( ), a former investment banker turned journalist, is author of the book "It Takes a Pillage: Behind the Bonuses, Bailouts, and Backroom Deals from Washington to Wall Street" and the just-released "Black Tuesday." Prins said today: "Unbridled bank speculation, fraudulent inflation of home and security values, corruption, government subsidization, and lack of accountability tanked the economy and inflated the wealth gap leaving the citizenry of the world financially devastated in its wake. Never before have the governments of the world united so cohesively to back Wall Street practices and bets.

"Business as usual on Wall Street is not an option. Business as usual on Wall Street has decimated our country and planet. Banks must be brought to account. The wealth gap cannot continue to grow so Wall Street can keep sucking the financial blood from individuals as governments enable the extraction:
"No more federal stimulation for banks at the expense of citizens.
"No more bank lobbyists buying the politicians we voted for.
"No more government subsidies to make big banks bigger.
"No more dumping their risk and losses on the global population while banks accumulate profits.
"No more zero percent money from the Fed to banks that don't help borrowers restructure to avoid foreclosure.
"No more secret loans to banks when they face 'emergencies' while individuals get hosed and go bankrupt.
"No more mega-banks -- break them up a la Glass-Steagall. Let failed ones burn in the financial ashes of their own risk.
"No more kid-gloves on prosecutions and BS little fines -- prosecute banks and bank leaders to the fullest extent of the law for securities fraud and grand larceny.
"No more job cuts because banks won't lend to small businesses.
"No more banks parking $1.6 trillion of excess reserves at the Fed doing nothing productive for the economy.
"No more business as usual on Wall Street." link

The US has created more problems and more enemies with its Global War on Terror. After ten years in Afghanistan and eight years in Iraq the killing and chaos continue. Obama may have inherited these conflicts but he did not have to continue with the same failed policies of the Bush/Cheney regime. And now America's standing in the Middle East and amongst the Arab countries and Islam countries is at an all time low since President Obama decided to throw the Palestinians under the bus and become a booster and cheer leader of Israel's and its uncompromising anti-Palestinian anti-Arab policies .

America’s Foreign Policy Fiasco By Patrick Seale from The Diplomat via Information Clearing House, Sept. 29, 2011

--- US President Barack Obama is piling up the foreign policy disasters. In at least three areas crucial for world peace and US interests – Arab-Israel tensions, Afghanistan-Pakistan and Yemen-Somalia – he’s pursuing a course that can only be described as foolhardy. Indeed, the anger and hate towards the United States that he’s generating could take a generation to dispel.
Obama’s abject surrender to Israel on the Palestine question has shocked much of the world and gravely damaged the United States’ standing among Arabs and Muslims. In what is seen by many as an effort to court the Jewish vote at next year’s presidential election, Obama has thrown into reverse the policy of outreach to the Muslim world that he expressed so eloquently in his 2009 Cairo speech. If he’s now driven to use the US veto at the UN Security Council to block the application of a Palestinian state for UN membership, he will have been defeated by the very forces of Islamophobia he once hoped to tame.

Obama’s policy in Afghanistan is equally perverse. On the one hand, he seems to want to draw the Taliban into negotiations. But on the other, some of his army chiefs and senior diplomats apparently want to destroy the Taliban first. This is hardly a policy likely to bring the insurgents to the table. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Ryan Crocker, the new US ambassador to Kabul, actually said that the conflict should continue until more of the Taliban are killed. Who, one wonders, is in charge of US policy?

In a message on the occasion of the Eid at the end of Ramadan, Mullah Muhammad Omar, leader of the Afghan Taliban, seemed to hint at his readiness for a comprehensive negotiation. ‘Every legitimate option can be considered,’ he said,’ in order to reach the goal of an independent Islamic regime in Afghanistan.’ He urged foreign powers to withdraw their troops ‘immediately’ in order to achieve a lasting solution to the problem. In a gesture to his local opponents, he stressed that the Taliban didn’t wish to monopolize power and that all ethnicities would participate in a ‘real Islamic regime acceptable to all the people of the country.’

Surely the United States and its allies should respond positively to this message? A conference in Bonn next December is due to review NATO’s war in Afghanistan – a war that seems closer to being lost than won. About 25,000 soldiers reportedly deserted the Afghan armed services in the first six months of this year because they had lost faith in the Hamid Karzai government’s ability to protect them and their families. Coalition troops are due to withdraw their troops by the end of 2014. Might there not be an argument for an immediate offer of negotiation together with a pledge of an earlier withdrawal? It is, after all, far from clear what strategic interests, if any, the West is defending in Afghanistan.

Obama Throws Palestine Under the Bus By Jim Lobe via Information Clearing House ,Sept. 25, 2011

-- The right-wing government of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu could not be more pleased.

Not only did the allegedly most "anti-Israel" president ever repeat, for the nth time, that "America's commitment to Israel's security is unshakeable," but also made crystal clear that Washington will veto any Palestinian application to the U.N. Security Council for statehood in his speech this week to the U.N. General Assembly.

Not once did he refer to Jewish "settlements" on Palestinian lands; nor did he even use the word "occupied" - or any declension of that word - to describe those lands and their people in an address that was largely, if ironically, devoted to celebrating this year's Arab struggles to end autocratic rule in their region.

Meanwhile once again the Obama administration intentionally contravene's American laws and international laws in its execution /Assasssination of an American citizen without attempting to capture and indict him to stand trial.

Obama like Cheney thinks due process is only for wimps and not for red blooded tough real Americans who in cowboy fashion hunt down a suspect and then lynch him . In the Troy Davis case and in the case of American Muslim Anwar al-Awlaki there is reasonable doubt about their guilt.
Obama once again is trying to prove to the GOP and the Tea Party gang that he's tough on terrorism and refuses to interfere with a state's right to execute someone even those who may be innocent.

The due-process-free assassination of U.S. citizens is now reality BY GLENN GREENWALD at, Sept. 30, 2011

It was first reported in January of last year that the Obama administration had compiled a hit list of American citizens whom the President had ordered assassinated without any due process, and one of those Americans was Anwar al-Awlaki. No effort was made to indict him for any crimes (despite a report last October that the Obama administration was "considering" indicting him). Despite substantial doubt among Yemen experts about whether he even has any operational role in Al Qaeda, no evidence (as opposed to unverified government accusations) was presented of his guilt. When Awlaki's father sought a court order barring Obama from killing his son, the DOJ argued, among other things, that such decisions were "state secrets" and thus beyond the scrutiny of the courts. He was simply ordered killed by the President: his judge, jury and executioner. When Awlaki's inclusion on President Obama's hit list was confirmed, The New York Times noted that "it is extremely rare, if not unprecedented, for an American to be approved for targeted killing."

After several unsuccessful efforts to assassinate its own citizen, the U.S. succeeded today (and it was the U.S.). It almost certainly was able to find and kill Awlaki with the help of its long-time close friend President Saleh, who took a little time off from murdering his own citizens to help the U.S. murder its. The U.S. thus transformed someone who was, at best, a marginal figure into a martyr, and again showed its true face to the world. The government and media search for The Next bin Laden has undoubtedly already commenced.

and so it goes,
