Mc C owes too much to the Military Industrial Complex to ever attempt to reign it in. They, the MIC are the only ones profiting from the continuation of this war.
Obama has no ties to the MIC, yet, and doesn't owe too many in politics to much of anything.
The Video is a hack job and I doubt it would look any better if Mc C was the target and the same amount of poisons used.
Terrorists, and their leaders are an unfortunate reality of our world, and refusing to meet in the hopes of negotiation only makes us look unreasonable and diplomatically immature.
Besides, it's a lot easier to Tag a diplomat when you have open access to him.
Obama is an intelligent man thats well educated and speaks publicly with an order of magnitude more grace & confidence than W, and I think that being an effective communicator is important in the office he seeks.
We are seen overseas and judged by the world through almost instantaneous communication mediums where the manor in which a message is communicated is almost as important as the message itself. The ability to deliver an effective sound-bite has become critical, unfortunately.
If America elects as it's leader, a Black Man with Muslim ancestry and Muslim Names no less, it will be seen as a The Major Social Turning Point in our nations history. Along with this will come some instant credibility points on the World Stage. Points we need.
I have always been republican but in the last few years have been disgusted with the systematic striping away of our Liberties in the name of Security.
This is not the America I served, fought and bled for in the past, it has been hijacked by the Machine that W & Cheney keep feeding our liberties and economy to.
I fear Mc C will just continue with more of the same.
