Mas, convenhamos, McCain também cumpriu um papel histórico importante; a candidatura dele bloqueou setores da direita americana muito piores do que ele, tais como os fanáticos religiosos... como se diz, "dos males, o menor"...
C'mon... he promises he's going to sit with the Castros, Hugo Chavez and have a nice talk, he's promising to withdraw the US troops from Iraq ASAP and he's still under fire from the true conservatives that accuse him of being socialist (Who knows? He may apply some socialist kind politics).
Well the drawing here doesn't show exactly what's the action, if it's taking out the sword or putting it in but looking at latuff's previous works you get the idea that this is not suppoussed to show Obama in a positive way. Which I find awesomely odd 'coz Obama is like completely different from Bush, McCain and the rest of the typical neo-conservative republicans.
I actually believe Obama is going to change US foreign policy for good. I also believe that Obama will attempt to engage in negotiations with US foes like Iran, Venezuela, Cuba among others in order to reduce the tension and the verbal conflict with each other.
But I don't hold up much hopes that it'll work. Guys like Chavez, the Castros and the other leaders are highly depedendant on antagonising the USA.
Hell even if Martin Luther King was president they'll still attack the US with the same rethoric.
Sorry NO! When you justify the choice of two evils, you are only putting a legitimate face on evil. Evil is evil! Fascism is fascism. To say you are better off living under Mussolini than Hitler is stupid!
