President Obama’s military surge in Afghanistan is costing the American taxpayers billions of dollars each year, not mentioning the cost in human lives and destruction.

This money could be used to house and feed the poor in our country and throughout the world.

It could pay for a national health care program for all Americans.

I personally resent the way that the leadership of the Communist Party USA never condemned Obama on his silence during the Israeli massacre of Gaza which took place right before he was elected president.

I firmly believe that the CPUSA has the duty to checkmate the president on every move that he makes.

The awarding of the Nobel Prize for Peace to president Obama at the exact time that he is increasing troop levels in Afghanistan; sending pilot-less drones each day into Pakistan which kill and maim innocent men, women, and children, is an insult to humanity which is completely ignored by the CPUSA.
