“The Kenyan kid”, Iraqi Bomber Barak Obama’s acceptance speech, fell on the 45th anniversary (Aug 28th 1963) of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I have a dream speech”
There the commomality ends.
The more I hear of MLK’s words, the more amazed I am at the degree of his intellectualism. Really, the words he says, the emotions he tugs and the hope he gives, are awe inspiring. Why oh why do we not have his words broadcasted at least once a week or even month? He can still teach us today. That I am sure of.
But Obama, isn’t individually outstanding in tems of intellectual prowess. That may not particulatly matter, as good leadership isn’t only about intelligence, but rather wisdom and an overriding sence of fair play. He might be a good ‘team’ player but I think his main problem is that he has a crooked moral compass – he supports those perpetuating the relentless massacre of Palestinians. Really, he’s an internally bleached “neodem”, who says he wants to kill US dependence on ME oil, but will put more troops into Afganistan. The reason why the West is in there, perhaps seems to have escaped him – to secure US military presence on the periphery of Central Asia and to to secure oil transit routes.
The idiot also goes on about OBL and how he’s gonna hunt him down. Gee wizz. Move over MLK, the time of the intelligent man is over. Make way for the (latest) rootin tootin shootin Sherruf of Amerikke.
But I too have a dream. A conscious one, and it is this: The second Obama is sworn in, he takes a microphone and a deep lungfull of air and shouts like he’s never shouted before… “CEEEEEEASE FIRRRRE” The world is silent, wondering if they heard that 5 second command correctly. Someone lifts his arms up over his head, poking out from the crowd and starts clapping. He is soon but slowly joined by more. People begin to weep. Broadcasters the world over jump out of their chair, punch the air and say YESSS!. Obama continues “Get back to your bases. That’s an order. You’re coming home”
The world has never seen anything like it.
People across the planet begin to smile in realisation that America has started the first day of a golden era. At least four good years that lie ahead, despite the unravelling of the financial scams.
Sadly at this point the dream begins to break down and is tainted by reality.
Obama staggers, and falls back into the crawd behind him, blood spilling out from a small wound on his forehead. The dream abruptly ends and the nightmate continues.
