Meet the new chief, same as the old chief

-A A +A
By Richard Foster

I thought that things would change under an Obama presidency, but the war continues in Iraq, we ramp up the war in Afghanistan, hand billions to Wall Street, health care reform is marginal, Guantanamo is running as usual, Colombia is practically a US bastion with seven of our new military bases and the Obama administration was instrumental in preventing a real climate change treaty in Copenhagen.

And remember when Obama promised in his campaign to renegotiate free trade NAFTA? The day after the Summit of the Americas, Obama rescinded that promise. Free trade has now been implicated in the June massacre of indigenous people in Peru who were defending their territory from presidential decrees issued under a U.S.-Peru free trade agreement.

Some things never change.
