Mr. Obama's Wars

Justin Raimondo says that the American preisdent "is committed to prosecuting the war in Afghanistan and now Pakistan on a scale that even the nuttiest neocons never dared suggest, a 'nation-building' project that is nothing less than the construction of a US colony, or satrapy, from scratch" — Colonialism, Obama-Style.

"This idea that the Obama-ites are really peaceniks in disguise, who have to hide their 'true' beliefs in order to pass electoral muster, is a myth woven by Fox News and the neocon Right: he and his Pentagon are no such thing," Mr. Raomondo writes. "Indeed, they are even more serious – albeit not as visibly enthusiastic – about projecting American military power globally than their predecessors in the White House."
