PDA members, prior to PDA being organized, supported Obama, not once, not twice, not three times, not four times but not five times before they organized PDA and three more times in running for public office--- twice for president; and, obviously, PDA still supports Obama.
PDA does not have one single success in convincing Obama to do anything... not while he served as a U.S. Senator, not since Obama has been President.
What does PDA want from Obama when he fires these "neo-cons;" John Kerry neo-liberal clones?
Let's get something straight: "Neo-conservatives" did not "hi-jack" U.S. foreign policy. The United States government's foreign policy has been dominated by Wall Street's imperialist agenda beginning with the Spanish-American War and it has never deviated from this imperialist agenda.
You helped create a seamless transition from one imperialist government headed by Bush to another imperialist government headed up by Barack Obama who has turned out to be as bad or worse than George Bush.
Where is the logic in supporting imperialists like Obama for any public office and then insisting he fire a couple imperialist war-mongers that he kept on instead of firing and replacing them with two-more imperialist warmongers to carry out U.S. foreign policy which will remain an imperialist foreign policy of dirty imperialist war after dirty imperialist war just as Wall Street orders?
Shouldn't U.S. progressives be joining with the anti-imperialist movements in Russia and the Ukraine in preventing this situation from erupting into one more dirty imperialist war where working people will fight and die and two countries more than twice ravaged by wars will suffer huge destruction?
Fund jobs not imperialist wars. We need to bring back the WPA, CCC and C.E.T.A.
Climate change and the military-industrial complex
After thinking about the implications of the coup in Ukraine for U.S.-Russian diplomacy on Syria, Iran and other vital issues, PDA's End Wars & Occupations team sent this out this afternoon. We hope others will echo it. - Sandy Davies - PDA
