Tonight a different direction in American politics: Bush asked America’s youth to fight for the Country, Obama asked them to learn for the country.  Huge contrast.


Change means three vectors: Education, Health care and economy. Wonderful speech, great strenght and another step ahead in this new direction.

The path

Most didn’t believe possible when Obama took office, but now it seems the words had a meaning… Obama want’s America talking with Iran, with mutual respect, trying to easy away, most of the tension between the two.


Don’t ilude yourself, we will not live to see a time where the two countries can be considered allies, it will not happen. But the world doesn’t have another chance – we simply could not tolerate this conflict to be solved with another invasion. These steps are lot more braver then seem in fist hand.

It’s finally an assurance to have a US president who doesn’t have problem saying he did a mistake (in the last 8 years how many times did Bush say he was wrong?) , and with the courage to talk to their enemies and try to build bridges that makes this world a lot safer.

If there is a path to peace, this is as close as it gets… wonderfull perspectives but a lot of work ahead. Keep going Barack Obama.

With Clinton on board Barack Obama start’s his mandate.

Sure the oath of office didn’t went very well, but the things that really matter started right away on his speech. His first speech as President of the United States of America show a lot of different things. obama-lincoln-cp-w6109957

I point out to 3 aspects of his speech, first of all, the tone was not a happy, celebrational one, but a tone that remembered each American of the difficulties ahead, second, the way he criticised George Bush with him sitting right next to him, on a ceremony where usually is nothing more then a huge party, shows a lot of spirit and will to chenge things arround.


For me probably the most important reference in his speech, was the accepantance of the “non believers”, in which group I include myself. It means an openness not only to the “non believers” but most important then that, a truly meaningful intent to treat all peoples and religions beliefs as equal. It’s a great step. If you simply hear the speech you might not notice that, but those 2 words might mean a lot more to the world then all the rest of the text.

You can’t ignore that most conflicts nowadays have a profound difference in beliefs on his basis. For the first time the USA seem to head without any pre concepts to the path of respecting every belief.

These first 3 days were as expected, Guantanamo closed in a year, some interests in the middle east  Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nothing new, we can’t judge nobody for 3 days… but the prospects are untouched…

D939-023This piece of news can give us an idea of what happened in the last 8 years, now that George Bush is leaving, nobody gives a dam about him, and Ehut Olmert , Israel prime minister surely doesn’t give either.

In his last speech, he said that was a phone call from him that lead the USA president to order Condolezza Rice to vote null in a resolution that demanded the cease fire in Gaza.
Incredible? Yes, in the very least! Olmert said he demanded to talk to Bush ten minutes before the vote take place on the UN. Olmert said “when we saw that the secretary of state, for reasons we cannot understand, wanted to vote inn favour of the resolution, I tried to reach president Bush and they told he was in Philadelphia making a speech – I said to them – I don’t care, I need to talk to him now!”

“They took him out of the stage to another room and I talked to him” continues Olmert describing this surreal story. “I said to him: You cannot vote in favour of this resolution!, which he answered: lesson, I don’t know nothing about it, I’m not familiarized with the way the resolution is written” – Olmert replied that he was quite familiarized with the resolution and that the USA could not vote in favour – and they didn’t.

Bush ordered Condolezza Rice to vote null in a resolution that she helped to write, organized in favour and was lobbying to be approved.

This is an example of the way USA diplomacy has been acting around. This story was very funny, if it were not a war we are talking about. How came Israel prime minister give orders like this is such a sensible question? Amazing, really. Don’t bother saying goodbye to Bush, he has gone a long time ago from the white house…

Yeah, this christmas we, for some strange reason, are not asking what can santa leave on our shoe, but at whom should we throw it against… after all, we still have to find someone to put the blame on, we still have a dark 2009 ahead, and with no solutions at sight.


Is Bush the only responsable? Surely not, but he is without any reasonable doubt, a very good target to throw a shoe. And we still say Iraq is still a very weak democracy.. well this shoe-throwing-at-stupid-presidents-that-can’t-distinguish-nuclear-weapons-even-if-theey’re-seated-on-one is a very advanced filosophy… in my opinion, one that can be defined as avant-garde.

Next it wil be the computer game, the t-shirt, the pin, we will have lot’s of at-bush-shoe-throwing memorabilia – the fact still remains: no war is a road to peace.
