What the POTUS Can Learn From a 16-Year Old Girl About the Proper Way to Handle Global Conflict
I present to you a video that clearly demonstrates that intelligence has nothing to do with age, as 16-year-old Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai demonstrates far more compassion and wisdom about the topic of war than POTUS Barack Obama, who remains nothing but a sock puppet for European and Wall Street banking interests that control the US Central Bank and direct all “war-profiteering-for corporate interests” efforts. When she was just 14-years-old, the Taliban boarded a bus in Pakistan that Ms. Yousafzai was riding and shot her in the head for campaigning for a woman's right to education. Since then, Ms. Yousafzai has shown remarkable courage, refusing to back down to the Taliban.
When asked what she would do if the Taliban came to kill her again, Ms. Yousafzia provided a most remarkable and courageous answer:
"I would reply to myself, 'Malala, just take a shoe and hit him. But then I said, 'If you hit a Talib with your shoe, then there would be no difference between you and the Talib. You must not treat others with cruelty and that much harsh[ness], you must fight others but through peace and through dialogue and through education.' Then I said I will tell him how important education is and that 'I even want education for your children as well.' And I will tell him, 'That's what I want to tell you, now do what you want.'"
Just a few months into Barack’s first term as POTUS, I penned an article, “8 Reasons Why the Obama Administration Will Not Solve This Crisis By the End of 2009” due to the fact that “President Obama’s cabinet appointments [did] not reflect, in the slightest manner, the enormous change that he spoke of during his campaign.” As absurd as that article title sounds today, many in the mainstream media were in the midst of a full-blown love affair with the then newly appointed (versus elected) President and some had illogically suggested that the POTUS would solve the Wall Street-created crisis by the end of his first year in office. Diametrically opposed to this mountain of propaganda, I warned a few months into Obama’s term: “Don’t let President Obama’s professed anger regarding the $165 million of bonuses slotted for AIG executives fool you.” With politicians, lies come as naturally to them as breathing, and one most be careful to judge a politician’s character by his or her actions, not his or her words. Why do I bring this up? Because bankers are inextricably linked to all major conflicts over resources that take place around the world, as US Brigadier General Smedley Butler so clearly described in his book "War is a Racket". In the 1930s, after General Butler realized that he was being used as a pawn for the benefit of Wall Street interests, he declared, "I believe in making Wall Street pay for it, taking Wall Street by the throat and shaking it up." But here we stand today, more than 80 years later, and Wall Street is still making us pay for all of their sins.
I truly hope this video makes it to the desktop of the POTUS himself, as he could learn a lot from Ms. Yousafzai to re-think his drone policy, and use education, as suggested by Ms. Yousafzai, to fight terrorism instead of ordering drones to drop bombs that many times end up killing innocent women and children, and instead of defeating terrorism, only serve to fuel more future retaliatory terrorism. To compound the errors of his drone policy, the POTUS has simply resorted to imprisoning journalists that know the truth about innocents murdered by his drones to prevent the world from learning the same truths. In fact, the Obama administration interrogated, beat, and told Yemeni journalist Abdulelah Haider Shaye “we will destroy your life if you keep on talking about [the US drone massacre of 14 innocent women, five of whom were pregnant, and 21 innocent children, the youngest who was 2-years old]” that occurred in Al Majalah village in southern Yemen in 2009. Perhaps it's time for an undeserving former Nobel Peace Prize winner to learn a thing or two from the young girl that should have won the Nobel Peace Prize this year - the wonderful and brilliant Malala Yousafzia.
