Obama is our only hope for peace in Middle East
Published Saturday, April 5, 2008
Editor, the Tribune: Ever wonder why so many independent-minded conservatives are choosing Barack Obama over John McCain and Hillary Clinton? Peace.
Obama has opposed the war in Iraq since its start. Clinton supported the war at first but changed her mind for political reasons. McCain has been behind the war all along.
Listening to Obamas speeches and debates, and researching his positions, reveals a man who will not only bring our troops home but will not start new wars.
McCain jokes about starting new wars when Americans are still dying in Iraq and Afghanistan, billions dollars are being spent on foreign wars at the expense of a "recessed" or "depressed" economy and an overextended military that needs to come home once and for all.
Clinton cannot be trusted. Her husband, Bill, almost started wars in Haiti and Korea until independent peace negotiators averted them. He ordered bombing of Iraq, Afghanistan and the Sudan to get his sex scandals off of the front page.
Obama comes to us as a man of a peace at a critical time in our countrys history - just as another Illinois senator with little national experience came to us 148 years ago. Yes, I am comparing Obama to Abraham Lincoln. He has been compared to a lot of people over the Internet and in campaign rhetoric, but it is Lincoln he most closely resembles. It is our patriotic duty to vote for Obama in November to end Americas involvement in Iraq and other senseless foreign situations.

No projectile vomit alert?
Well, he is correct in his assessment of the Clintons but woefully, foolishly and embarrassingly naive about Obama.
Yep! A man of peace, like all good Muslims are.
I take it that Mr Shipp is referring to McCains "bomb bomb bomb bomb Iran" quip.
Here is a clue Shippweed... Iran started a war with us in 1979 and they are still at it now.
Babies For Obama
Obama is our only hope for peace in Middle East (Obama man of peace, like Lincoln, says reader)
a man of peace....a man from the religion of peace.....which is the truth????
Yes we need the vomit alert. Lincoln was good but only because he won the war and was on the right side as to slavery. He could have stopped the war that cost millions of american lives. Man of peace, hardly.
Hilarious. “They’re just repeating syllables. Like children do.”
Methinks this mindless repetition of syllables is not limited to children.
Obama wants to expand troop presence in Afghanistan. Am I reading the article correctly that the author doesn’t understand these are two separate fronts?
I have to find the link that states unequivocally that Obama will go into Pakistan - a nuclear country - with or without their permission should they not cooperate on Bin Laden.
There was no war in Lincoln's time!
He was a man of peace, especially after he was assassinated.
Independent-minded conservatives know these things.
And my patriotic duty is to support America and all she stands for - including Michelle Obama’s many blessings - which would mean not supporting her husband.
A true man of peace would have to be the strongest, toughest man in the region. A bowling score of 37 doesn’t contribute to a perception of the candidate as one of those.
Obama’s Campain Coordinator on Iraq, Colin Kahl,Stay on Success: A Policy of Conditional Engagement,.the U.S. should aim to transition to a sustainable over-watch posture (of perhaps 60,00080,000 forces) by the end of 2010 (although the specific timelines should be the byproduct of negotiations and conditions on the ground).
Obama may have claimed he was against the war from the start but was he always against leaving troops?
Obama July ‘04 to the CSM,
“the United States has an “absolute obligation” to remain in Iraq long enough to make it a success.”
“The failure of the Iraqi state would be a disaster,”.”It would dishonor the 900-plus men and women who have already died. . . . It would be a betrayal of the promise that we made to the Iraqi people, and it would be hugely destabilizing from a national security perspective.”
I agree with your assessment that Obama is no friend of Israel.
But there is the oft made point that if the Jewish people did not exist in the Middle East, the Arabs would have to invent them, because they are incapable of living in peace.
