The newly organized Students of American Liberty at East Tennessee State University held a pro-peace and anti-war lecture Wednesday night titled Obamas Wars.
I feel its a shame that since President Obama has been elected, all talk and speaking out against the war has stopped, SAL President Matthew Adam Jeffers said. Its a shame because he is actually perpetuating the war by bombing Pakistan and sending 17,000 of our troops into Afghanistan.
The featured speaker, introduced by Tennessee Libertarian Party Chairman Tony Walls, was antiwar.coms editorial director Justin Raimondo.
When the illusion of Barack Obama, the great peacemaker, is finally dispelled, we are going to wake up and find ourselves waist deep in a war that will soon threaten to dwarf the disastrous situation in Iraq in both human and material costs, Raimondo said. We know this from what he has said he would do and what he has already done.
This is a protest, he said. We are protesting Obamas war in Afghanistan, his reneging on his promise to get us out of Iraq, his launching new interventions around the world and we are waking up the campus community to the reality, as opposed to the media image that has been created of Obama as peacemaker.

Shame that the lempn law does not apply to US elections
Wait’ll obozo reinstitutes the draft. Then we’ll hear some whining.
The America Chicken-Foot Print wearing PeaceNutNiks are P.O.d at the “O”! LOL
Of course he’s not seeking peace. He has declared war on America!
He’s not letting our allies feel left out either.
More kool-aid drinkers are realizing that what they drank was poison.....
The democrats wanted to force Bush to retreat but they have no intent of doing so themselves and getting saddled with it.
I thought that was a nice place?
Obama and crew can't be bothered with a little thing like two shooting wars. No, they are more concerned with re-shaping America into a socialist nightmare. We're fighting on the wrong fronts.
Where are the anti-war protestors? Why the silence?
Did they really mean it when they said “Support our troops, bring them home”? Or were they lying?
Where is the media sabotage of our efforts against terrorists that hade become so prevalent in the last six years?
It’s very nice.
I did not attend the speech (duh) but there’s a picture and it looks like maybe 12 people turned out.
We have the university populated by the typical nutcases, fruitcakes and blithering idiots.
But, the vast majority of folks here are normal Americans.
You mean you didn’t get the memo about absolutely zzzzzzzzzzzeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrooooooooo news stories running about Iraq and how horrible the war is and/or is going and how the US is killing everyone and everything in sight? Or that we bomb babies and kill civilians and laugh all the while?
You say it was a put up job and that Gitmo is humane?
Now why d’ya spose the ‘media’ would’ve said all that and spent all those years trashing the US and our fighting forces?
You don’t want Raptors or new generation helicopters, and you’re willing to scrap missile defense? You say Yucca Mtn is gone, too? What exactly is our technological advantage?
Who’s doin’ this, d’ya spose? Who would do this and WHY?
Raimondo was used by the Democratic party like the last two sheets of toilet paper on the roll and he's still whimpering about what they owe the anti-war side. Good luck collecting, Justin. Bambi - that'd be General Bambi to us - has his position staked out and it's to conduct a war better than Bush, the "right" war, heaven help us, prosecuted under the usual sanctimonious liberal platitudes. I don't know what worries me more - peace creeps like Raimondo who are happy to see 25 million people enslaved so long as he can keep his own lily-white hands clean, or amateurs like Obama who have no trouble second-guessing the pros but every difficulty in backing down from it. I don't have a good feeling about this.
Hey, Adam Jeffers, you moron. Here’s some words of wisdom for you, direct from GWB: ‘Fool me once, shame on shame on you. Fool me you can’t get fooled again.’
Oh I too think it is just awful that Cindy Shehan isn’t camped out in Chicago on while they are home or that the code pinkos aren’t still protesting at the WH. The wars are still going on, where are they? :>
