I watched a film today called the hunting party! Reality kicked home! I realised something which i knew along time ago but never wanted to face the truth. Sad on how a film can bring realisation but not what has and is being reported in and around the world.

From the beginning of time Humans have had an ideology of wiping out the weaker species, from ayans to the hunters and gathers, irrespective of population or religous and personal beliefs something is always found to distinguish one human from that of another. This continued from Saladins, king Richard Crusade, the Devils army, Hitler etc etc... So has almost become a part of our genetic make up! The common westerner will always demonize something because its different and offends the very route of its beliefs before attacking it and justifying that such ways are the devil ways and are not accepted amongst the common civilised human. This is espicially common amongst the american folk as oppossed to any average European who have the privilege of not being brainwashed by the Murdock empire and co! Apart from the unlucky Brit who have the red top papers to contend with trying to distinguish reality from controverisal fiction that always is a good marketing tool! So what does Obama stand for is the million dollar question?

Well, some say he is sympathatic to the muslims as both his father, and his step father were non practicsing muslims, and with his indionesian school upbringing be it all only two years at a very young age (not forgetting his only muslim friend only known for two months) is a muslim in disguise. Others would argue given his mother's religious beliefs ( a non practising christian with a book from almost every religion in the house) and his baptism he is a devout christian!

It is difficult to say which he is as any good poltician would do is to disassciate themselves from the negative if he is ever to climb the political power ladder! To elebrate if i was a poltician and knowing that the world has pigeon holed all muslims as terriosts as most eastern europeans countries as modern communist in disguise would i ever admit that i was a devout muslim? and even if i was i would go out of my way to do the opposite to show the world otherwise, to get them to accept and justify why i should stay in office! The effects would reduce me to a shallow man! Im not saying Obama is or would become as shallow! But eventually, common held belief does affect one's decision no matter how strong minded the people are!

So what does it matter what his religous beliefs are! What is important is how is he going to bring about a safer post bush world! We all know it is in USA interest to keep a unsafe world as its the biggest arm dealer in the world, and war means dollar signs!

Key question is Obama going to go down the traditional route of maximising profit or actually sacrifice its biggest and most profitable export in return for a safer world! Obama has already sent chilling messages to Pakistan and India and the attempted CIA plot to destablise the area has become very apparrent! That he may be inclined of following the traditional route, Or is Obama going to surprise us all by going to do the right thing which is to introduce legislation for democratically elect Media Editors (who shape the way the public think), re instate the United Nations giving it absolute power in deciding which states are rouge and which arent and wipe out hypcrocy, or is he to only please the fat cats that put him in power! We will see! So what does he stand for? Does it matter! What he does in his first term will determine what he actually stand for only then will it become apparent!
