RT News – Obama said during the G20 Summit: “We believe that nations and peoples have the right to live in security and peace; that any effective security order for Asia must be based not on spheres of influence, or coercion or intimidation where big nations bully the small, but on alliances for mutual security, international law and norms that are upheld, and the peaceful resolution of disputes.” Then he contradicted what he said, “I’m here today to say that American leadership in the Asia Pacific will always be a fundamental focus of my foreign policy.” Obama re-asserted Washingtonian’s role as supreme leader “of the world’s only superpower.”
Does any nation, big or small, has the right to live without external intimidation or coercion? Democracy and freedom means freedom from any form of tyranny. That’s what humans called “our rights”. The paradox is that freedom should not subject to external power, yet freedom cannot exists without power of interference. If Washington is correct, what follows is that freedom only exists when small nations are subject to the rule of of Washington, having proclaimed leadership as the world’s only superpower.

George Bush once said during his presidency, “read my lips”. What he was suggesting is that he is not saying what he is saying. You need to second guess him. Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld followed up with more convoluted statements during the flux of 911 and the missing $2.3 trillion from the Pentagon (while under his charge):
There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don’t know we don’t know.
– Donald Rumsfeld
Now Bush’s successor’s Obama wants to make it to history with his catch-phrase: “change”. Reading lips juxtaposed with unknown unknowns, perhaps what he means is that his words change according to situations. In short, don’t take my word for it. This is a stark contrast to great leaders whose stature are premised upon words that never cringe once they leave the lips. A great leader stands by his word. That is the hallmark of dignity, honesty and integrity.
Having been conferred the Nobel “peace” prize, Obama continues with his chanting that “the world is a safer place”, “the economy is getting better”, “the world has never been more peaceful”. Any normal person must read his lips about the “changes” Obama has brought to the USA and the world. Just examine the facts. Facts and history don’t lie, people do, and all the time.
Indeed, there are too many unknown unknowns. Just as Bush had implored Americans, remember to read their lips, they are just moving flaps of flesh, making much noises like clanging gongs, but saying nothing.
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
