A word for Barack Obama
von Heinz Gupta
Many ascribe the poor economic development of the United States to Barack Obama and his government and mock that, despite the strong words „Yes, we can!“, no progress is to be seen, denying by ignorance or malice, that Obama had to take over the giant debts of his predecessor government. Debt, for example, from the military commitment in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The arms, the supply, and the oil industry, however, have made great profits during the wars, paid with the blood and lives of many young Americans.
Also the desire of Obama to provide the ordinary people with social and medical security will cost money.
The Republican opposition, supported by big corporations and powerful groups, makes every effort to overthrow the hated „black“ president. Even with restrained capital spending, which could in turn create jobs.
Socially insecure people are naturally dependent and more grateful workers.
Furthermore, many American jews have no interest for a balance of interests between Israel and the Arab States strived by Obama.
Now, who can help Obama and his team?
No! They fight themselves like Laocoön with the snakes of their economic miseries.
No! They fight themselves for a dominant position as an energy superpower.
The Arab States?
No! They are struggeling with each other and have to do with internal riots.
Solely China could give assistance, because this country is very interested in having its biggest debtor regaining strength, which was also its largest purchaser of goods.
Let us see!
