In open letter, Michael Moore calls Obama "The New War President"

Max Eternity - Senator Obama became President Obama because he promised an end to Middle East occupation, a restoration to the rule of law, transparency in government, single-payer healthcare, a reduction in military globalization and other progressive ideals. He has failed to deliver on almost all fronts. Obama has made some modest steps toward changing draconian War on Drug laws and sentencing--not obstructing states from adopting medical marijuana programs, and he has been more diplomatic than Bush in representing American interest abroad.

Notwithstanding, within the first year of his historic presidency he stands to become one of the biggest disappointments in history by betraying is own ideals, simultaneously crushing the hopes and dreams of untold millions.

In recent days some of his most ardent supporters have began expressing serious concern and dismay of what they perceive as outright betrayal. And with the recent revelation that Obama plans to escalate the Afghanistan war and occupation, Michael Moore penned the following letter:

Dear President Obama,

Do you really want to be the new "war president"? If you go to West Point tomorrow night (Tuesday, 8pm) and announce that you are increasing, rather than withdrawing, the troops in Afghanistan, you are the new war president. Pure and simple. And with that you will do the worst possible thing you could do -- destroy the hopes and dreams so many millions have placed in you. With just one speech tomorrow night you will turn a multitude of young people who were the backbone of your campaign into disillusioned cynics. You will teach them what they've always heard is true -- that all politicians are alike. I simply can't believe you're about to do what they say you are going to do. Please say it isn't so.
