Are they really going to bomb Syria?

                                                        IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

Obama has turned out to be a most cunning wolf in sheep's clothing! 

The man sang songs of hope and change and, swept in to office with his dignified criticism of Bush, the war in Iraq, Guantanamo Bay, greed and corruption. I used to meet Americans who said they were finally proud to be Americans abroad. After the fact, I relegated him to a pretty speech boy since nothing much changed. But after Snowden and Manning, after continued torture at Guantanamo, after increased drone attacks in Pakistan, and now with his administration's thinly veiled threats of war, what do we make of Obama now?

Is my generation going to witness yet another war of aggression by the so-called civilised West justifying war by the most blatant propaganda? Is my generation doomed to feelings of helplessness and rage?
