He is a grand failure as a president and as a human rights Nobel Prize winner. His drone attacks on civilians mirror his support for Israel’s unprovoked murderous attacks on Palestinian civilians in Gaza. Obama and Netanyahu are both callous thugs. By aiding and abetting Netanyahu’s campaign of genocide, Obama has locked in a damning legacy that will haunt him forever.

These are the fact… whatever you wrote is a typical propaganda trick à la Putin.

I remember his speech in Berlin during his first campaign. I still do not understand how he has been able to squander that credit. The value of the information collected by CIA, NSA and their Five Eyes colleagues is nothing against the value of the trust lost, both outside and inside the US. “Yes We Can”, ha!

@dd606, the impression that Germany is full of Putin-lovers is quite wrong. Some extreme right and left wing people are, but the majority (like me) thinks he is quite dangerous. The strange thing is, Putin condemns his enemies as “Fascists”, but his friends quite often are real ones, like German NPD, or Front National in France.

The only hope for America now is a US voter that can clean house.
