India is Not Your Mortal Enemy, Obama Tells Pak

A short while ago our President Obama made clear what many Indians have been saying and demonstrating in action for decades even in the face of grave provocation in Kashmir, Mumbai, Delhi  and elsewhere – the biggest threat to Pakistan comes not from India but from within its borders.

Here you have it in Obama’s own words:

On the military side you are starting to see some recognition just in the last few days that the obsession with India as the mortal threat to Pakistan has been misguided and that their biggest threat right now comes internally. And you’re starting to see the Pakistani military take much more seriously the armed threat from militant extremists. We want to continue to encourage Pakistan to move in that direction.

    What are the key achievements [or decisions] by Obama in his remarkable 100 days at office? Responds:

    * Messing up bailout of Wall Street by giving a free pass to the ass****s who brought the financial system to the brink.

    * Hiring a tax-evading rat like Tim Geithner as Treasury Secretary, who is more sympathetic to Wall Street than with the people. Read this NYT piece.

    * Not replacing overpaid, useless idiots like Citigroup’s Vikram Pandit, Bank of America’s Ken Lewis et al.

    * Allowing bonuses for AIG executives. Remember, Obama Took Lot of Money from Scumbag AIG

    * Poor judgment in selecting top aides.

    * Allowing 17-year-old Horny Bitches to Screw without Fear of having Swollen Bellies.

    Great job, eh?

    Foreign policy – more measured responses to Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, ending torture, decision to close Guantanomo Bay.

    So, what happened to the ‘Change, we need’ watchword?!?!?! Responds:

    Well, Obama got a Big Change in his family – He got a Portuguese Water Dog.

    you did not like what Bush did ….he is doing exactly the opposite ….still there is a problem ? Responds:

    Obama is still a hostage to the lobbyists.

    He could not/would not make headway with the so-called ‘cram-down mortgage‘ bill that would have let judges rework the terms of the mortgages to save the homes from foreclosure (a legal term meaning the process by which Americans lose their homes if they fail to pay their monthly mortgage). The credit card bill is also limping along in Congress.

    We are not great fans of bailouts. But if you are giving hundreds of billions to bail out the greedy pigs at AIG, Citi, Goldman Sachs et al who caused the collapse by their reckless behavior, what’s the problem with throwing a few crumbs to the beggars losing their homes.
