Today, President Obama
addressed the United Nations Assembly.
In President Obama’s speech, he praised the many regime changes that occurred over the past year, citing how change does not necessarily need to come by violence. Specifically, the portion of text from his speech to the U.N. Assembly was…
“So this has been a remarkable year. The Qaddafi regime is over. Gbagbo, Ben Ali, Mubarak are no longer in power. Osama bin Laden is gone, and the idea that change could only come through violence has been buried with him. Something is happening in our world. The way things have been is not the way that they will be. The humiliating grip of corruption and tyranny is being pried open. Dictators are on notice.”
Here again, is the same text,
parsed with snippets of news reports of the day.
“So this has been a remarkable year. (The unemployment rate in the United States was last reported at 9.1)
The Qaddafi regime is over.(Libyan rebels on Monday said they had sent more fighters and weaponry to Tripoli…)
are no longer in power (Rockets pound ghost city as allies say Gaddafi must go…)
Osama bin Laden is gone, (The president called the killing of bin Laden the “most significant achievement to date”…)
and the idea that change could only come through violence has been buried with him.
Something is happening in our world. (The crowd I saw and spoke with were well informed, and deeply concerned Americans about the direction their country was headed. They were polite, courteous and above all–patriotic.)
The way things have been is not the way that they will be. (“We’ve come to take our government back,” Paul declared to a cheering throng.)
The humiliating grip of corruption and tyranny is being pried open. (A federal jury found former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich guilty of 17 of the 20 counts…)
Dictators are on notice. (President Barack Obama is rapidly advancing an executive dictatorship)
The only question that remains is,
“Who will write the history”?
