“YES WE CAN” Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States

For anyone who has not watched Barack Obama’s acceptance speech late night on 3rd November to a massive crowd at Grant Park Chicago, do so before proceeding further

Its finally over America has finally chosen Barack Obama as its 44th President. History has been created and its for the very first time that an African American will be the official resident of the White House. Not only does it signify that after years of struggling with a pestering issue of racial discrimination Americans have finally risen out and quite possibly millions of ‘white Americans’ may have actually voted for a black man to lead their nation forward

If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.

It is quite possible that late night on 3rd November 2008, in cold winter breeze of Chicago, American may have actually changed, the speech reverbrated across the world glowing with the message of hope, hope not only for the millions of Amerincas but hope for the billions across the world. Whilst the Americans chimed ‘Yes We Can’ with Obama, billions across the world may too also have chimed along as well.

The world had truly been holding its breath for the past few months, mostly sick and tired of the ongoing mismanaged tyranny created by the Bush dynasty and truly hoping for a new change in American politics, yesterday the 6.7 billion people may have truly heaved a sigh of relief as they watched Obama deliver his victory speech

To those — to those who would tear the world down: We will defeat you. To those who seek peace and security: We support you. And to all those who have wondered if America’s beacon still burns as bright: Tonight we proved once more that the true strength of our nation comes not from the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals: democracy, liberty, opportunity and unyielding hope.

In early January 2009 Barack Obama will walk into the White House not only after having successfully won a rigorous election campaign but will now carry with him the burden of hope and dreams of millions of Americans, if not billions across the world, it is now him alone that has to live up to the extraordinary high expectations that Obama created for himself he has to literally out-do himslef by a mile and half to keep the Americans happy that their votes were not wasted. The test of time will probably a look back into the past four years from now and we hope that then Obama himself can confidently say, Yes We Did Change the world to a better place

In terms of the impact of these elections on Pakistan, I believe we will be one of the very first few challenges for the incoming Obama-Biden team. Pakistan now sits in a very precarious situation and needs to be handled very delicately and diplomatically ensuring that this country does not simply disintegrate right under their noses.

The global economic crunch combined with a deteriorating security scenario in Pakistan has actually compounded the stability of our country beyond repair. Whilst we must admit that most Pakistanis do not see any glimmer of hope from any hopeful resurrection from our own democratically elected government who sadly remains busy at minting money from an already bankrupt country, mind you, these issues are mostly our own internal problems that we need to cleanse ourselves, what America desperately needs to sort out is the security situation within Pakistan for which America is part responsible, its possible that with this issue out of our way we can revert our attention to bringing our own house in order and try to send these looter’ers and plundered packing hopefully replacing them with a set of leaders who can deliver an awe inspiring YES WE CAN speech to drum up our own national dignity and patriotism which now stands at an all time low

    Congratulations America, Congratulations Americans, Congratualtions Obama.

    For some reason, America looks better, stronger, gentler and even admired. I feel bad for John McCain, but I praise his gracious and supportive concession speech. McCain was the right person representing the wrong party. It was good to see the old McCain and not the right-wing Palin-type that had emerged during the campaign.

    There is hope for America and the world. The strongest signal to the terrorists and the loudest slap in their face is the election of Barack Hussein Obama to the highest office in the world.

    Obama should remember the promises regarding ending the war in Iraq, defeating the terrorists and providing a more humane, equitable, and positie environment for the world.

    God bless President-elect Obama.

    @ Harris,

    I am afraid I have the same sentiments !

    Obama has interest to remove The US lead Nato
    troups from Pak Border and stop immediately
    drones attack on innocent civilians and finaly remove
    all from Afghanistan. If not, you might have bad
    surprises.

    @ Mr. OBAMA,

    don’t listen to M Q M’s “Chapprassis” boot lickers,
    the band of 43 London based fidels of Bush & BJP.

    Kasa-lesson ne, thuggey ka rukh badal dala,
    Obama talak, wo Bush kay wafa-shiaar rehay

    Congratulations USA:
    Impossible has been delivered in the History of Humans:
    The Beauty of Democracy is glorious and shinning in USA
    Obama seems to be a simple,straight to the point man.
    If politicians and people of Pakistan come up with a mutual and clear idea of what they want ,I have no doubt
    Obama would not hesitate to listen and to enable us to achieve what we want:ONLY IF WE ASK FOR REAL DEMOCRACY
    I SAY :MUSHARAFF for he gave Pakistanis:three things
    MEDIA,LIBERALISM AND HUMAN RIGHTS

  • guYasir |

    USA has give divorce to God and make Game-theory rules rather than God-theory rules esp in trade USusry is rampant and there’s an authentic hadith of last prophet that “USury has 70 factions and least u commit incest”. Apparently USury is a biggest sin after shirk.
    They are herding to all of us towards Armageddon, They’ve fought sordidly themselves i mean jews and goyim and orchestrated all wars and carnage incl. war on terror.
    Luciferism is their religion and they’re a black bastards whose nationality one duznt know whether he’s muslim, communist, christian, born in kenya or where? im talkin about Obama none but a black bastard.

    I was in Washington, D.C. and went to the White House after he made his speech, and the amount of young people that were RUNNING to the White House, chanting, cheering, high-fiving – was truly a sight to behold. Obama is a figure for America’s younger generation – inspiring people who never cared about politics or thought they didn’t have a voice to get involved in the elections.

  • QaimKhani |

    Well, Obama had all the world hoping, hoping for good, lets see if the hopes perish or cherish.

    Lets see how it changes. Does it make America any less arrogant.

    If I had the choice between Obama and Zardari, I would have chosen Obama over Zardari

    Obama may be bey-deen, but he is not bey-Aeeen
    Zardari is bey-deen and bey-Aeeen

    no doubt that was a great day for americans and rest of the world.i think this is the first time america showed it’s real power.not because an african american became the president of usa,but to astonishing victory of political wisdom over racism.this is really slack jawed experience for me.
    i pray some day we will be able to execise this power and eliminate curruent political system along with it’s opportunist and corrupt politicians.
    i hope some day we will be able to see our politics free from zardari,nawaz shareef,mr fazul ur rehman and altaf hussain.
    on the other hand it will not affect the current scenario of pak american relationship.again americans will be unable to realise the dreadful out come of the war against terorrorism.perhaps situatuion on ground go from bad to worst because of hostile approach of barak obama against
    pakistan.so as a nation we should save our enthusiaism for some thing else.

    @ May be its time for Zardari to go !!!

    Go Zardari Go Zardari GO GO GO
    take Zehri take Jakhrani GO GO GO

    @ FarRah K Raja,

    ” Beauty and glory of Democracy shinning in USA ”
    In GOD we TRUST.
    And we trusted always the GODFULL Americans.
    Two party dictatorship, and you want them to deliver
    Democracy to you ! otherwise you will never budge !!
    NO ?
    Proof, you had Musharraf !!
    who soldout 700 Pak citizens to the Gastapos
    who destroyed your culture, religion, identity,
    who toppled a democratically elected Govt,with 2/3 maj
    who introduced Nazi ” Human Right” final solution for
    Laal Masjid and NWFP.
    who left a legacy of permanent Fahashi & Bakwas on
    media.
    who left behind a retarded PENDOO SECULARISM, a modern
    SIKHA-SHAHI par excellence.
    who left behind another of a mongol secular like
    Z A R D A R I, PEER and goons and the likes.

    OBAMA WILL GIVE YOU A MAJIC PILL EVERY TWO HOURS DAILY.
    TO FEEL DEMOCRATISED !!!

    GOOD BYE DEMOCRACY

    @rafay kashmiri
    these guys are restless.No matter what we discuss they will be there.

    @guYasir

    why would you call Obama a black bastard? what is wrong with you people? i have never ever come across a non-cynical comment from netizens like yourself. please, learn to relax, and appreciate life. as for mr. kashmiri, i apologize for going after the both of you in these comments section, but what culture do you wish to preserve? that of relentless cynicism and bitterness? then fear not, despite musharraf’s best efforts that culture is intact.

    our culture is also about hope, tolerance and love. try dealing in those assets sometime.
