Obama in Ghana Africa – Africas Future is Up to Africans

US President Barack Obama was greeted with much fanfare and hope when he visited Ghana , Africa promoting Military Bases and Democracy in an Oil Rich Country. In his formal televised speech from Accra , Obama stated: ” Africa is a fundamental part of our interconnected world – Africa’s Future is Up to Africans ! ” and ” I have the Blood of Africa Within Me. ”  

Obama later said ” An Essential Truth of Democracy is that Each Nation Determines its Own Destiny but what America Will Do is Increase Assistance to Responsible Individuals and Responsible Institutions. We have a Responsibility to Support those who Act Responsibly and to ISOLATE THOSE WHO DON’T  and that is Exactly What America Will Do.

” Ghana , for instance , OIL BRINGS GREAT OPPORTUNITIES … oil cannot simply become the new cocoa. ”

” We are All GOD’s Children , we all share common aspirations… America has the Responsibility to work with you as a Partner and let me be clear , Our Africa Command is Focused not on Establishing a Foothold in this Continent but on confronting common challenges that affect Africa , America and the World ”

” as I said earlier , Africa’s Future is Up to Africans – I know Africans can Live their Dream – The World will Be what You Make of it – YOU HAVE THE POWER – YOU CAN DO THAT , YES YOU CAN. Yes, We Can – Thank You Very Much  ”  – US President Barack Obama

This is nothing new – He’s up to his old tricks – playing Citizens of Earth as Fools. No Wealth for the Masses as Leaders Exploit the Economy to Enrich Themselves. Bankruptcy knows No Color. A video on Africom:

Iran Police Crush Protest Kill Neda say Election Results Stand

Iranian security forces using tear gas and clubs overwhelmed a  group of rock-throwing protesters in Tehran. Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that the June 12 Iran election of hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would not be reversed and vowed that the nation’s rulers would never yield to demands from the streets.

RIP , The martyr Neda Video:

Acts of dissent such as strikes , blocking traffic with sit-ins and the nightly cries of protest from rooftops and balconies continue though the mass street demonstrations are declining – fearing the likelihood of more violence or deaths , like the Martyr Neda.

Iranian State TV reported that Ahmadinejad would be officially sworn in as President between July 26 and August 19 2009. But the Revolutionary Guard may well emerge as the big winner.

Iranian authorities have barred journalists for international news organizations from reporting on the streets. Most news from Iran is now uncovered from Internet , TV and mobile phone broadcasts. 

Power struggle – Selection Not Election , ask Al Gore about Selection not Election. The game is rigged.
