WWW, January 2009 - Under the new Obama administration, the so-called "War on Terror" is business as usual: last week, the US military launched two missile attacks against people in Pakistan.

Many people have protested against the wars that George W Bush and his group pulled the world in. Many people point out to the new president Obama as he has rhetoric's about leaving Iraq, but they forget the fact that Barack Obama left the same guy in charge of the military.

Even stronger, Obama made it clear that those who are against the war should not count on him and last week this became painfully clear as the US military attacked people in Pakistan, killing 17 under which two children.

Check out this short interview that CNN's Wolf Blitzer had with the president of Pakistan on Obama's first strike...

WWW, January 2009 - How can it be that the USA backs up Israel in just about everything this state does? The answer is partly given in the title of this Dutch documentary with English subtitles.

The recent strike on Gaza by the Israeli military sent shockwaves among people world-wide. Once again, one might add. There is hardly any conflict in the world that triggers more emotion and even empathy than the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

It's a conflict where religion, politics, history and ethnicity blend together in an explosive situation. People in the street are the biggest sufferers, as those in power fuel the conflict at the cost of innocent blood, every day.

In this documentary, we try to find an answer to a significant aspect of this complicated matter: the fact that the USA seems to back up the Israeli state in just about everything it does. After all, it is because of this -as it seems- unconditional support that the state of Israel can do what it does.

The documentary was produced by Dutch public broadcasting company VPRO, and is almost completely in English. The few Dutch words spoken are subtitled in the English language.

We'll meet with Richard Perle, a well-known Neo-con and advisor of George Bush. We'll see someone who worked on the presentation that Colin Powell gave to the United Nations which caused the war in Iraq.

We also see an Amerikan evangelical pastor explaining how he has millions and millions of people under his wings who he can, and will, mobilize any time an American politician votes against Israel in some or another resolution.

We see Barack Obama, "presidential candidate", and George Bush as well as Dick Cheney as they visit an organization called AIPAC. This organization is extremely powerful. It seems like every politician who wants to be(come) something in American politics, needs the approval of AIPAC.

We see... The Israel Lobby.

BABYLON OBSERVER OBSERVES: Obama announces more US Deaths in New Wars

BABYLON OBSERVER OBSERVES: Obama announces more US Deaths in New Wars

Obama administration warns public to expect rise in US casualties

The Obama administration warned the US public yesterday to brace itself for an increase in American casualties as it prepares to step up the fight against al-Qaida and the Taliban in Afghanistan and the border regions of Pakistan.

Against a background of widespread protests in Pakistan and Afghanistan over US operations since Obama became president, the vice-president, Joe Biden, said yesterday that US forces would be engaged in many more operations as the US takes the fight to its enemies in the region.

The Obama administration is to double the number of US troops in Afghanistan to 60,000 and when asked in a television interview if the US public should expect more American casualties, Biden said: “I hate to say it, but yes, I think there will be. There will be an uptick.”

Greater US involvement in Afghanistan is a political risk for Obama, with the danger that mounting American casualties could make the war as unpopular as Iraq. Obama, in his first military action as president, sanctioned two missile attacks inside Pakistan on Friday, killing 22 people, reportedly women and children among them. The attacks drew criticism from Pakistani officials at the weekend.

The Pakistani president, Asif Zardari, told the US ambassador to Islamabad, Anne Patterson, that the strikes "do not help the war on terror". According to reports, he also warned her that "these attacks can affect Pakistan's cooperation in the war on terror".

A foreign ministry spokesman, Mohammad Sadiq, said: "With the advent of the new US administration, it is Pakistan's sincere hope that the United States will review its policy and adopt a more holistic and integrated approach towards dealing with the issue of terrorism and extremism. We maintain that these [missile] attacks are counter-productive and should be discontinued."

Biden, in an interview with CBS news, defended the strikes, saying that Obama had repeatedly said on the campaign trail he would not hesitate to strike against any high-level al-Qaida targets. He suggested cooperation between the US and Pakistani counter-terrorist agencies would increase, with more US training for Pakistani counterparts.

Over the last year, there have been at least 30 US missile attacks on Pakistan's tribal area, which is used as a haven for insurgents fighting international troops in neighbouring Afghanistan.

On Sunday, the Afghan president, Hamid Karzai, condemned a separate US operation within Afghanistan that he said killed 16 Afghan civilians, prompting hundreds of villagers to demonstrate against the American military.

The US said the raid, on Saturday in Laghman province, killed 15 armed militants, including a woman with an rocket-propelled grenade. But Afghan officials said they killed civilians, including two women and three children. In Laghman's capital, hundreds of protesters demanded an end to overnight raids.

Karzai warned the killing of innocent Afghans during US military operations was "strengthening the terrorists". He also announced that his government had sent Washington a draft agreement that seeks to give Afghanistan more oversight over US military operations. The document has also been sent to Nato headquarters.

The death toll on Pakistan's borders and within Afghanistan has caused widespread public anger, with resentment directed at the US, as well as the Afghanistan and Pakistan governments.

"It undermines the position of the government, its ability to negotiate [a peace deal] with the militants when the Taliban can say: 'You're not even master in your own house,'" said Ayaz Amir, a newspaper columnist and an opposition member of Pakistan's parliament. "It undercuts the credibility of a government, whose credibility is already low."

Some of the strikes in Pakistan have killed senior al-Qaida militants but they tend to live with local families in the tribal area, making civilian casualties inevitable - which are then used by the Taliban as a recruitment tool.

Rustam Shah Mohmand, an analyst who was formerly Pakistan's ambassador to Afghanistan, said that Pakistan had leverage it could use, by stopping supplies to Nato troops in Afghanistan to pass through its territory or threatening to withdraw the Pakistani forces deployed along the Afghan border."

"If anything, the policy [of missile strikes] is going to be more focused, more aggressive, under Obama. There is going to be a 'surge' in Afghanistan," said Mohmand. "The Americans can't wage this war without Pakistan's assistance." istan otest -pakistan

WWW, January 2009 - George W. Bush left the White House and Barack Obama was blessed by none other than Rick Warren to become the next President of the USA.

The Obama Nation is a fact!

After eight years of George Bush, the people of the USA are in a state wherein they would, according to a commentator, even elect Mickey Mouse in the White House. The rest of the world laments over the fact that they have no voting rights in the USA, a country that always has a president claiming that "The United States Have To Lead The World".

We had eight years wherein the White House was occupied by a man mesmerizing millions of people who think of themselves as "Born Again Christians". After all, George W. talked with Billy Graham on the beach and he doesn't like abortion... The result? Any, yes, any action by Bush was defended by ground troops holding the Bible in their hands.

Obviously, George Bush is as much a Christian as the Devil himself. The Babylon Observer has reported how this "born again Christian" attends the Bohemian Grove where he gathers with other leaders against Jah and plans wars as well as rumors of wars.

But now, there is "change"...

Amerika changes from "Bush Country" to "Obama Nation" (yes, pun intended), and the abomination is becoming more and more obvious.

Where we had countless "Gospel Singers" backing up a president that took the planet into a state of war using the Name of Jesus as his foundation, we now have several Reggae singers giving praise to Barack Obama, "Black Man in the White House"...

Several Reggae vocalists who were (before?) known to Chant Down Babylon seem to have been undergoing the very same mesmerizing treatment that so many "Born Again Christians" had during the Bush era. They are among the millions and millions who celebrated as "Amerika's Pastor" Rick Warren blessed Obama into the White House, filled with talks of "hope" and "change"...

Babylon's choice to have Barack Obama become the next President of the USA is, among many other things, an obvious attack to the Movement of Rastafari. The Nyabinghy (meaning: "Death To Black and White Downpressors") Drums silence as we're now being treated with lyrics that claim stuff how "God" has to "Bless America" and worse.

However, this Barack Obama who is now present in the White House is as close to JAH and HIS KINGDOM as George W. Bush. His political view is more similar than different than that of his predecessor, too.

On countless occasions, Obama makes it clear that he thinks "The United States Should Lead The World". Just like Bush and Clinton and the rest before him!

When you take a look at the gang who he has surrounded himself with, the message to the world is clear. Obama, in his own sermons, makes it clear that he wants to send extra soldiers to Afghanistan and there are claims that say how Obama even plans to attack Pakistan.

His chief advisor is Zignew Brzinski, a man who is known to basically be the founder of the Taliban as he radicalized the Muslim Warlords in Afghanistan to make them fight against the Soviets who had invaded the country.

His secretary of state is Hillary Clinton. And she is by far not the only one who is closely related to Bill Clinton, another former president of the USA who is know to have blood on his hands, and in the cabinet of President Barack Obama.

Does this not say anything?

When the bombs start exploding under the command of that very same President who is being worshipped by so many, including -formerly?- conscious Reggae Vocalists, what will happen? Will we indeed see Rastafarians -and those who claim that they are- defending Babylon's New World Order, just like we saw countless Christians -and those who claim they are- doing the very same thing under George W. Bush?

We probably will. In fact, we already do. The Babylon Observer has already observed how people who did not support the war in Afghanistan were called "bag-o-wire" (basically, "traitor") by ones doing so claiming they know about Rastafari.

Apparently, killing people in Afghanistan is now part of "Chanting Down Babylon"...
