Today the US markets fell nearly five hundred points; the sharpest single day drop since 2003. The auto industry of America is now on the verge of collapse. The auto industry remained complacent with the lobbyist bought politicians by their side. Why change the lineup of American vehicles when there is a constant demand from the consumer? Gas may get expensive sooner or later but the government that we lobby will be there to bail us out if the time ever comes. Now the time has come and Congress is wary of bailing out the auto industry, because it is a free market. This is capitalism and what happened to the notion that America allows free enterprise to either live or die based on adaptation. The auto industries lagged behind companies like Toyota to come up with more energy conservative models, instead they built gigantic SUVs that guzzled gas without void. There was no need for them to change because there was no pressure but only complacency. They should drown, and new industries should be born. Isn’t that how free capitalistic markets work. Jobs will be lost and a huge chunk of American interests will be badly wounded by the collapse, but bandaging the problem will only make the situation worse. The same is true of the credit crises. The whole economy is slowly beginning to deteriorate and the recession is beginning to gain momentum. The ripple made by the bailout is soon going to be overtaken by the tides of a greater looming danger of total economic failure.

Al-Qaeda’s number two leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, released a new video warning of the impeding war with Obama’s new America. He blamed Obama for rejecting his Muslim roots, “You were born to a Muslim father, but you chose to stand in the ranks of the enemies of the Muslims, and pray the prayer of the Jews.” He also went on to accuse Obama of being a “house slave,” referring to him as a black man under the control of his white masters. “You have reached the position of president, and a heavy legacy of failure and crimes awaits you. A failure in Iraq to which you have admitted and a failure in Afghanistan to which the commanders of your army have admitted. If you still want to be stubborn about America’s failure in Afghanistan, then remember the fate of Bush and Pervez Musharraf, and the fate of the Soviets and British before them. Be aware that the dogs of Afghanistan have found the flesh of your soldiers to be delicious, so send thousands after thousands to them.”

The despicable message by al-Zawahiri is the sign of a weakening force of Islamic fascists. Instead of recognizing a new president with a new direction for America and the world, he continues to rail against policies that may help millions of Muslims out of the throws of despair by having America vacate Iraq. His voice is echoed through the long and lonely corridors of a crippled extremist Islamic movement. People want to move on with their lives and stop the killing. Cowardice men like him hide in the caves of Pakistan their whole lives wishing death upon others. He ignites hatred instead of resolve. He wants to instill distrust amongst Muslims who may hope for change with the coming of Obama which is a shame. I believe that every Muslim in the world deserves an apology from America regarding the unwarranted killing of the innocent in the false invasion of Iraq. However, militant dead brains such as those who operate al-Qaueda should be blown to pieces, because they are nothing more than venomous war mongers feeding off grief. They insensitively manipulate and destroy both men and women who lose hope during tough times, and make them mere human bombs to prove their own political points.

The war in Iraq was wrong and the toll it took on both the Iraqi people and the country itself was unbelievable and an atrocity for all of mankind. The war in Afghanistan should have been handled more carefully, but our presence there was warranted after an attack on America. Obama has a very long domestic and foreign road ahead filled with potholes, dead-ends, and morons. A lesson should be taught to all those cowardly militants in the caves of Pakistan and Afghanistan that their hate mongering has no place in the world today. We must march ahead with peace in our hearts. It is time our actions speak louder than our words. We must leave Iraq stable, and soon Afghanistan after stabilizing the government and handing the people peace. We must win the moderate Islamic world through diplomacy, and bring an end to destructive war and death.

These times in our present history are worrisome as the tides of instability are rising. It seems as if everything that could have gone wrong has gone wrong in our country. The path we have been so carelessly been venturing down has proven to be dangerous. The good news is that we have change in President Obama and a new administration. The effort will not solely stem from Washington DC but instead from every citizen of the world. We all need to make changes to better our lives and the lives of others.
