I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! It's finally 2010 - another decade come and gone.
Looking back on 2009, I can't really say much about the Obama presidency - it was his first year, after all. But in 2010, I hope to see big improvements.
Now people have no one to blame but our CURRENT government. Former president Bush already did his time in the limelight of shame and harsh criticism; now it's President Obama's turn. He has no choice but to directly deal with the terrorism issue now - terrorists. want. to. kill. us. Perhaps he will one day wake up one morning while residing at one of his many vacation spots and realize that we are dealing with terrorists who want to exterminate us and harbor feelings of hatred and antipathy towards us Americans. I don't know, it's just a thought. OR maybe we are dehumanizing our enemies, and they just want to be friends! Yes, we should invite them to the White House and make peace treaties. Not.
From Obama's random Nobel Peace Prize to his national security failures, I really do hope that we don't all die in 2010. No, I'm being dramatic, but seriously - I don't want to die if I get on an airplane. I'm just saying.
Breitbart.com says that "nearly half of the remaining 198 detainees [of Guantanamo Bay] are from Yemen, where the Christmas Day attack was planned" (Source). Obama's plan to shut down Guantanamo Bay is a bit behind schedule right now, but oh goodness! That many detainees are from the same place as the terrorists who tried to hijack another plane on Christmas Day of 2009? What a coinkidink. Oh well, we can't keep those poor innocent suspected terrorists locked up and being tortured now, can we? Even though they might know something about the crazy people who tried to blow up another plane. Who cares? Let's all be nice this 2010 =].
If we play nice with these people...we're all going to die.
=D Food for thought!
Happy New Year to you all~
