"They don't pose the number one national security threat to the United States," Obama said. "I continue to be much more concerned when it comes to our security of the prospect of a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan."

That is actually what the President said. I could wish he had phrased it differently but the remark was kind of off the cuff, I think. I take it as the concern we all have about the possibility of a suitcase-bomb.

Everyone goes on about songwronger being mad but why don't they apply the same standards to Obama and call him mad for what he says about a nuclear attack on Manhattan ? The US has hundreds of nuclear weapons as a deterrent against a Russian nuclear attack, so Obama doesn't feel the need to be too concerned about Russia's nuclear weapons . And yet he says that a nuclear attack on Manhattan is a concern for him . He doesn't say why anyone would be mad enough to do such a thing as nuke Manhattan or speculate on motives, who the crazies might be etc. Sounds to me like paranoia on the President's part .

What I mean is, when I read some of the drivel here, I think, "That's awfully white of him/her." Liberals are inveterate racists. You've been racists for so long that you've lost sight of the fact.

At any rate, Obama talked about Manhattan being nuked. And then there's this today:

The United States is on alert and has deployed military assets to defend the Atlantic coastline from New York to Charleston from attack by a cruise type missile or low flying aircraft.

http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2014/03/28/356298/us-on-nuclear-false-flag-high-alert/

What strikes me odd about this story is that Obama just dropped a hint about New York City, and a while back some nukes went missing in Texas, heading for South Carolina. The day after they disappeared Senator Lindsay Graham said Charleston S.C. was going to be nuked. Shortly thereafter there was an "earthquake" 200 miles off the S.C. coast, and Obama fired the 3 military men in charge of supervising America's nuclear stockpile. The servile media reported that the generals and the admiral had been dismissed for this and that, but some sources said they prevented Obama from nuking America. The earthquake in the Atlantic was a detonation from the bomb that an admiral heaved over the side.

New York to Charleston under watch. Obomber on the prowl.

Don't lecture me on Obama and context. Point to an area where he hasn't betrayed his base. Hundreds of little betrayals, each somehow justified by his True Believers, who swear that he's just being taken "out of context." Hell, he just brought British Petroleum back under his wing, BP the mass-murdering polluter of the Gulf of Mexico. But I'm taking that out of context. I just don't understand. Obama's a liberal man, so he wouldn't do business with an evil corporation like BP. I'm just taking that action out of context.

And now he says he's concerned about the number one threat to the US and a nuke in Manhattan.

But why waste time on this? I made my point, that Obama is on video talking about a nuke in Manhattan. He's either going to set one off or he's just terrorizing, the way he likes to do.

Of course I hate Obama. What's not to hate? He's a torturing spymaster. He stole my vote when he promised a more transparent government.

Well, I never voted for George W. Bush, yet I voted for Obama. Once.

Bush is the Butcher of 9/11. He was the puppet in chief who allowed Cheney and others to carry out that terrorist attack. And Obama covers for him. Both deserve fair trials and executions.

I'm not partisan. We only have one major political party in America, and it's run by bankers who have been waging war on Russia forever. I'm certainly not in favor of the Money party. I'm an FDR type of person.

Did any of you know that the Rockefellers and Rotschilds financed Lenin and the Bolsheviks? The Anglo-American banking empire took over Czarist Russia and ran it for nearly a hundred years, yet I bet most of you still think it was Commie vs Capitalist that whole time. Capital controlled the whole show.

I just get tired of big money running everything while they give us freaks like Bush and Obama to fight over. But I have to admit Obama's the freakiest of the lot that I've seen in that office. He makes me think of Caligula, who was raised in the east. Obama was raised by a transvestite nanny in Indonesia. He debases America (same as Caligula debased Rome), and both showed a penchant for torture. Bush is just a sadistic moron but Obama's a stone cold freak.

Apparently you are unable to recognize facts versus truthiness when you already have a 'dog in the fight'.

I think that Europe's behavior helped trigger Putin's taking advantage of a situation. He and his forces have been successful at bullying the Ukrainians, but this is far from settled.

I like Obama taking the long view despite his being trashed by short-fused blinkered hotheads.

The Crimea is just a sideshow. The main attraction is the enslavement of the Ukraine by western banks. From The Activist Post:

IMF Plans Massive Austerity for Ukraine According to Crimea Leaders

If statements made by Deputy Prime Minister of Crimea, Olga Kovitidi, are to be taken as truth, the future of Ukrainians living under the yoke of Fascists, the European Union, and the IMF will be yet another example of the imposition of extreme austerity measures and national impoverishment that is the fruit of alignment with those institutions.

The Western-backed coup government in Kiev, of course, has already gone begging to the IMF for financial help after it turned its back on a much better loan offered by Russia. The conditions of the IMF loans are, as always, extreme levels of austerity measures and privatization of public services and assets.

Kovitidi, however, provides much more specific information regarding the nature of the IMF conditionalities.

The Deputy Prime Minister claims that the tentative IMF agreement involves handing over the entire country's gas pipeline for free to the American company Chevron. She also claims that the owners of the Mariupol, Zaporizhzhya, and Dnipropetrovsk steel mills will be required to give up 50% of the ownership stakes to German company Ruhr.

The Finnish subsidiary of Ruhr, according to Kovitidi, will inherit the Donbass coal industry.

Kovitidi also stated that Crimean leaders have discovered that Kiev has promised Western financial interests that it will impose "unpopular measures in order to fill gaps in the Ukrainian budget." One of these unpopular measures will be the rollback of mechanisms functioning as gas subsidies, forcing the prices of gas for municipal companies to increase by 50% and double for private companies.

Kovitidi also said that "Electricity tariffs will be raised by 40%, housing utility tariffs will be raised, too, gasoline excises will go up 60% and transportation tariffs 50%, while state support for childbirth will be cancelled, the free distribution of textbooks will be annulled at schools and the VAT relief will be scrapped in rural regions."

A VAT (Value-Added Tax) is also being planned for medications, Kovitidi said.

She also claims that there is a plan to sell off Ukraine's very rich and fertile farmland to international corporations and foreign countries. Kovitidi states, "The planned annulment of the moratorium on the sale of farmland looks appalling. The selloff of Ukraine's black soil zone, including to foreign countries, may have disastrous economic and social consequences."

Indeed, Ukraine's "black earth" region has been sought after by dictators, oligarchs, imperialists, and financiers for many years due to its rich and productive food production capabilities.

Whether or not the details of the IMF agreement are exactly the same as the specific concerns Kovitidi has expressed in her statement, the fact is that the IMF is nothing more than an agent of the world banking elite and predatory financier oligarchs that seek to parasitize on a nation of people already on their knees.

When it comes to true success stories, the IMF has a track record of zero.

In the end, and by this time in history, any leader who gets in bed with the International Monetary Fund should be recognized as a traitor or a fool.
