(MARKUS M. GORITSCHNIG) President Obama gained the Nobel Price for peace from a naive nordic tribe basically just because of the color of his skin. The “regime change” in Libya cost 40-50.000 lives – only after US and French (Sarkozy) led intervention. US involvement accompanied all the “Arabic Spring” that turned out to be a violent fundamentalist movement. Then they turned to Syria, following the neo-cons doctrine of a “democratization” of the Near East – as such one of the greatest war crimes in newer history. The Clinton Foundation and administration made good business with states supporting the civil war that has caused half a million deaths, an unprecedented refugee crisis and encouraged the rise of the IS. The chaos that was caused in Maghreb and Near East continues to get worse in Europe.
The fascinating and tough thing about Trump is that he got rid of the neo cons’ and hawks’ influence in central aspects, namely “regime change”, free trade doctrine, Wall Street. Nobody expected such changes in American politics just some years ago. Instead of acknowledging this totally new emancipation of a candidate, main stream media have portrayed Trump as a racist for stressing the discussable point of millions of illegal migrants and as a ruffian for challenging a rather hypocrite correctness. This way media tried to claim all historical minorities for the counterpart and thus of course enforcing such “division”.
Obama has changed nothing except emotions, as Noam Chomsky said. And on Wednesday the disaster of global dimensions will maybe just continue – and get worse. In case some around the world might ask afterwards: What in actual fact was so bad about this guy who indeed tried to change some disastrous guidelines?
