My answer to What do people who don't live in the US think of Obama?
Answer by Desmond Last:
My snapshot of Obama’s Presidency.
Starving and ready to die. A child with not enough food to live in Africa. One of thousands who die of malnutrition every month.
Bloody torn limbs and only one year old, with screaming parents watching the U.S lead Planes fly overhead in Syria, letting loose missiles with their scream of death.
Wall Street on a Friday night. Packed bars as they spend their never regulated bonuses.
Gaza still subject to an illegal blockade.
A child somewhere in the world being raped streamed live to the Internet, the money earned being spent via HSBC in London. Google still allowing illegal pornography through their search engine.
Corrupt African Governments filling their overseas bank accounts – their people in poverty.
Obama living it up in Hawaii, in New York the homeless freezing in the Cold.
Whales gasping their last breaths as they lay stranded, their navigation system poisoned by chemicals and plastic.
U.S Troops still in Afghanistan wondering if the are going to die for a land and a people that does not want them.
A man in Libya with no Government wondering why America invaded his country.
A child looking for her mother and father in Yemen. She one of so many.
60 million refugees with no homes.
10,000 men women and children dead crossing the Mediterranean.
300,000 Syrians dead.
A boy in Somali his last look at his father before the NATO drone kills him.
A black man in the U.S trying to make a living. Now dead.
A Cop in the U.S trying to stay alive. Now dead.
A man in Guantanamo wondering if he will ever see his family, let alone a court of law.
18,000 nuclear weapons worldwide looking for a deadly home.
A suicide bomber in Baghdad looking at the children he is about to murder.
Being President of the United States of America is also a leadership of the World.
In my opinion Obama never took the opportunity to lead. He has not made the U.S the laughing stock of the world – we in the U.K have that dubious honor.
