A Different Kind Of Tears For Obama

Posted by robertgreenwald on December 1st, 2009

Originally posted on The Huffington Post.

This time they wont be tears of joy.
The hope, belief and passion that Obama inspired,
The dreams for the future,
The visions of change.

All that will be become a memory as Obama embraces and escalates a war.
A war that will do nothing to protect our security,
A war that will result in th death of thousands of Americans and Afghans,
A war that will spend billons.

A war that will eat up resources that should be going to jobs, homes, schools, health care.

A war that will hurt rather then help the people of Afghanistan.
A war that will hurt our moral standing and strategic goals.
A very sad day.

Different kind of tears.

Join us in the work ahead to hold our elected officials accountable.
Join us in spreading the films that tell the story with Afghan voices.
Join us in spreading the films that tell the story with Afghan vets.
Join us in spreading the films that tell the story with the CIA.

Whatever our hopes and beliefs and dreams for and with Obama, we cant remain on the sidelines anymore.
