Divert, Distract, and Demonize

The War Party's strategy to sink Barack Obama

By Justin Raimondo

".....Hillary Clinton, as far as the War Party is concerned, is the "safe" candidate: she came through for them with her recent remark that Iran ought to be "obliterated," while we must cover Israel – and unnamed other countries in the region – with our nuclear shield. She doesn't care what she has to do in order to win, and if that means making Obama unelectable – well then, so be it. Rush Limbaugh, Bill Kristol, Richard Mellon Scaife, Sean Hannity – these are her new allies. Who's next – Norman Podhoretz? What more confirmation do we need of my contention that both political parties in America are merely the "left" and "right" wings of the War Party?

If all else fails – the smears, the "mainstream" media barrage, the dirty tricks – the anti-Obama crowd can always bring out the really big guns. Those "super-delegates" were put in place in order to make sure that the Democratic presidential candidate toes the War Party's line, and guarantees that the nominating process never strays very far from their iron grip. As I said of Obama in February: "They'll never let him become president." Unfortunately, it looks like I was right."
