    For the first time since Mao, a major nation is being governed by a cult of personality rather than a government of the people. While BHO speechefies, the US is degenerating to a shell of a country almost like the UK. Unemployment is skyrocketing; US soldiers are dying in a war BHO and his staff have no knowledge of executing properly; he emboldens the enemy by claiming there is no such thing as terrorism; he remains silent while hundreds are murdered in Tehran; he remains silent as Turkey begins its genocide of the 21st century against the Kurds; he has promoted the philosophy that outside nations should have a full say in how US domestic policies are handled; he has subjugated himself to the Saudi Muslim king; AND he commands the most corrupt US administration in history. The list just keeps growing. I understand why Stenger - AKA Amira Hass AKA Abu Zhuri - hopes his phenomenon keeps growing.
