Oh my good Tamil for OBAMA mafia team will get upset if they see this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they mite comets suicide?
Not a big deal being seen next to Prez Obama who has turned from a “YES WE CAN” man to a “NO WE CAN’T” President. Mr Obama’s administration has shamefully got its priorities wrong. The issue of Palestinian statehood which Mr Obama personally opposed at the UN is a case in point.
The shameful “star wars” type killing of the so-called Mr Osama Bin Laden did nothing to Mr Obama’s flagelling popularity ratings; the American people are intelligent to see through political intrigue and discern truth from falsehood.
The Obama administration continues to persecute innocent Iraqi’s and Afghans under the pretext of establishing western type democracy. Their pursuit of the Arab Spring is just another terroristic uprising to secure natural wealth.
In terms of self determination, the Obama administration supported South Sudan’s secession in order to gain the upper hand over its natural wealth. And so is USA’s behaviour towards Libya. Legitimate grievances such as that of thePalestinians and Sri Lankan Tamils are confined to bungling bureaucrats of the ilk of Robert Blake. Through its negligence, the US is directly responsible for genocide all over the world including Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Sri Lanka and the list is long.
In terms of war crimes and crimes against humanity, the Obama administration has been selective in correctly identifying the Sudanese Leader, Omara Bashir, as a war criminal, proven by the ICC. However they have turned a blind eye towards atrocities of other world leaders including George Bush, Mohammed Ahmedinajad and Mahinda Rajapaksa.
To President “NO, WE CAN’T” Obama, 300 million Americans are bound to wish him Goodbye at the end of his 4 years.
“Tamils for Obama” (means Tamil terrorists in America) are now trying to get rid of Obama after Obama failed to fulfil Tamil terrorists’s cheap targets of manipulating a US president using few million dollars.
Now they are planning to manipulate Obama’s opposition candidate. We’ll wait and see which American politician can be bought easily by Tamil terrorists.
