Binocular Snapshot for 5/24/2011

LastDayWatchers  day after day you will see the results of God curse of the Bush/Obama Administrations as

At least 10 Afghan laborers on their way to work in southern Afghanistan were killed by a roadside bomb on Tuesday

"Fazaludin Agha, governor of the Panjwai District in Kandahar Province, said the workers were in a truck taking them to their job when it was hit by the bomb in Sperwan village.

Taliban officials have in the past said that they consider foreign aid projects legitimate targets and have warned that they will kill civilians working on them.

Tuesday’s roadside bombing is the latest in a string of attacks by militants across the country."

4 killed by parked car bomb in Baghdad

"Iraqi officials say four people have been killed in the explosion of a bomb in a parked car in southwestern Baghdad.

The blast Tuesday evening in a Sunni neighborhood also injured 14 people."

Airstrikes pound Tripoli as NATO escalates Libya campaign

"An increase in NATO strikes along with British and French commitment to deploy attack helicopters may be aimed at breaking a stalemate in the conflict.

The US State Department's highest-ranking diplomat on Mideast affairs, Jeffrey Feltman, is currently in Benghazi to boost US solidarity with the opposition's interim government, the National Transitional Council (NTC).

The visit was "another signal of the US's support" for the rebels National Transitional Council."

Obama and Cameron must break this addiction to war

"Obama is admired for his vigorous steps to fend off recession. He is admired for confronting the health industry lobbyists. He speaks the language of conciliation abroad. He has seemed a voice of reason and sobriety, after eight years under George Bush when America seemed alien and painfully at odds with the world.

This has been spoiled by continuing western military aggression in and on Muslim states. All Obama promised, in cleansing the west's reputation, in restoring disengagement and reversing Washington's image as an overbearing bully, has been vitiated by surges, drone missiles and the kneejerk attack on Libya.

That the top item at a summit between Britain and America should be how to bomb a north African state that threatens neither of them is absurd. To many in Britain, American foreign policy under Obama has come to seem Bush-lite, while Britain's seems Blair-lite.

Military intervention played no part in regime change in Tunisia and Egypt, while its deployment in Libya seems to have been counter-productive. There was desperation in Monday night's display of air power over Tripoli, as the RAF celebrated Obama's arrival in Britain with a reprise of Bush's 2003 "shock and awe" in Baghdad. This is not responsible foreign policy, but rather an archaic brutalism.

This was the legacy of Bush and Blair and it is the most barren in recent history. Yet it holds those successors in thrall. Neither has shown a capacity to disengage from the drums and trumpets of warin favour of a more subtle and more productive diplomacy. Until they do,

Any hope that the west's leadership might gain traction in the Muslim world is futile."
