Obama's appeasment?

Barack Obama is reportedly "planning to reach out to the Islamic world, seeking a rapprochement with Muslim opinion alienated by the Bush administration."

Alienated by the Bush administration?!!! They are the ones who attacked us on 9/11!

We responded by freeing Muslims in Iraq from a dictator who by all accounts was torturing and slaughtering his own Muslim subjects! If we had not been so concerned about innocent civilians, President Bush could have put an end to this war in no time by reducing Bagdad to a heap of ruins. But because we did not want to kill innocent Iraqi civilians, the supporters of Iraq's brutal regeime have been slaughering our American soldiers by the thousands!

Even so, we did not take over the country. We poured millions, if not billions back into their country and helped them to establish their own government ruled by Muslims!

What exactly have we done to alienate them? Perhaps they are the ones who need to worry about alienating us!

Is Barack Obama really so naive as to assume that we are really at fault here? Is he really so ignorant as to think appeasement will bring peace?

If so, God help us!

The article cited three things Obama committed to do:

1) Close secret prisons.

2) Require the CIA to use the Army's interrogation handbook, inline w/ the Geneva conventions. Although "secret loophole" would be left in place.

3) Give a speech in the capital of a Muslim nation.

#1 and #2 probably will not matter at all to radical Muslims or Muslims who are under the control of terrorist or terrorist-sympathetic regimes... but these two things will reduce the complaints the international community can lob against the U.S., and if Obama's administration can keep the country safe while completing #1 and #2 then that's a win.

#3 is a trivial nothing. It's a speech. If it doesn't cause any harm then do it.

I don't think it's clear where Obama will stop in his efforts to restore the US' global perception. The items listed so far are not "appeasement" it's just smart politics (assuming the US can still be protected). Maybe later he does things that can be considered "appeasement", but I'll wait and see before I condemn him for it.

Why don't you get a wooden dick and fuck yourself you piece of fuck. You have nothing better to do than dumbing yourself and others down! Thank God I am not you, but someone else is you, I'd do something productive... Go pickup some garbage off the street (piece of your fallen brain) or help a needy (you should take yourself to a mental hospital and seek some mental rehab) etc...
Stop fooling yourself that you are doing something to rescue this country. If the US is being harmed is because stupid jerks like yourself and ilks! Get a life Jerk!
