Obama on Tour to Shore up the Empire

Debra Sweet | May 25, 2016

The commander in chief is making highly provocative visits to countries the United States did the most significant damage to in the last century. He's in Vietnam, where more than 2 million were killed in the illegitimate U.S. war on the people.  Napalm, B-52 bombers, "tiger cages," and the words "My Lai" will not come from Obama's lips. The State Department has made it clear Obama is not in Hiroshima, Japan, to apologize for the U.S. first use of a nuclear bomb on the people there. 

What is Obama up to?  He's there to tighten up military alliances with subordinate countries, hand out weapons, and once again to access Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam's deep water port from which the U.S. made war, and from which it could challenge China.
