Your comments, M Tovey, are appreciated. It is interesting that you describe America as having been "taken so far from her constitutional roots" - one would like to hear more detail on this.

Though I have read somewhat on BHO's childhood and young political education, one cannot help be feel that there are MORE INFLUENCES 'behind the curtain' and pulling the strings than simply the whims of one (radical) man. I note the author stated: "Is this a random series of errors by an incompetent leadership or does some grand, if misconceived, idea stand behind the pattern?" I have heard that the REALIGNMENT towards Iran and away from traditional allies - notably Israel - was conceived a one Baker and certainly is the philosophy of Soros and the Trilateral Commission. True?

If that is true, then my question would stand - will we see a real change in the White House, emanating from the present elections, or will true change be blocked, even if a majority of voters vote for a return to the more traditional role of the US. Many feel, I believe, that - one way or another - the current trajectory will be maintained at all costs?

It would be good to understand more behind the assassination of Kennedy (though I gather from your comment that we shall not hear.) And it is a grief to hear your confirmation that the Nuclear Trigger will be pulled... that Israel, possibly America, will suffer great and unimaginable destruction.. And I hear you - to be wary of anything emanating from the United States. That there is " no fireman" to put out the flames, at a time when the world is clearly tearing at so many tectonic flashpoints, as it were, is not good news.. but this is agreed. There is no longer a counter-balance between Russia/USA, Europe seems set simply to endorse USA/Obama. The UN is hardly a force for peace, but rather for endorsing radical regimes and politics.

Time to pray!
