Zeman verus Obama

My student said, "But surely Obama is better than Zeman".

(Miloš Zeman, President of the Czech Republic)

My answer:  "How many people has Zeman killed?"

Obama, with drones, has killed hudreds, maybe more.

He promised to close Guantanomo, and he did not.

I don't have much good to say about Zeman, but so far as I know, he has not yet murdered anyone, and he has not endorsed the use of torture.  (In fact, I think I heard him once say something about US war crimes...........)

Guardian Video about Guantanamo:

Innocent people are being tortured in Guantanamo.  People who are KNOWN to be innocent.

Added note:
This is exactly the danger which Edward Snowden has warned us about.  The USA and UK and other governments now have the power (through the internet) to manipulate any conversation you've ever had on SKYPE or the internet, and use it against you---if ever you are falsely accused, or if your name happens (mistakenly) to appear on a certain list.

The danger which Snowden warns about has already happened without even trying to fabricate a story which "paints" you as bad!  Innocent people  have been tortured and imprisoned in Guantanamo.

Follow-up Note:
And now there are important reports on the brutal savagery of drone attacks....
