This trip, with all of its meetings, should be viewed as a learning experience by a U.S. President badly in need of one. He should pay particular attention when the Russians speak of Afghanistan. They surely have learned from their mistakes. Can we?

Putin and Medvedev will play Obami like a violin. The Savior is way over his head.

Another editorial disgrace by the Eagle. When will they finally get over Bush? Obama has been nothing short of a disaster, yet, that little tidbit seems to escape them.

It is really disgusting. These both war criminals ruined these Afghanistan totally, crashed the whole country and human lives there and they have not yet enough. New pact of type Ribbentrop-Molotow. Just thanks such pacts two world wars were begonnen and the third war got green light. All these hideous pigs who sit by the feeding troughs eternally in so called countries which usurp the right to conquer the world just like this usa and russia not regarding that this what they make things, was never and will never be in the interests of their societies and any other societies. All these their war crimes, their genocide are not in the interests of people whom they oblidged to serve and not to impose their sick, downgraded style of life.
If they murder the next hundreds of tousends of innocent people in this Afghanistan and in this region and they will conquer this Afghanistan ( the country with mountains and wastelands - it is just this famous Afghanistan with the huge crowds of really poor, innocent people )will they be happy? It is clear thing that it will be not enough and the whole thing will go farther.
This genocide and crime against humanity must be over and now.

Glad Obama has recognized the importance of shoring up relations with Russians. They are key influencers of countries we have strained relations with. I would like to give him the benefit of the doubt and wish him well in this endeavor, unlike those who wish for him to fail.

Idiot.

I also wish him well but the influence of Russia is far underrated today. Mostly Iran and Syria.

The new democracies of the old Union of Socilaist Soviet Republics still have some economic ties to Moscow, but they are trying to distance themselves and move away from socialism.

Hussein Obama foreign policy "I'm sorry" has made us look like a laughing stock. Inviting Iran to 4th celibrations was a joke. Hussein is way out of his league - fail, he already has. He's already a class A joke!

Taking a trip down memory lane, we supported/armed the Taliban (including the "freedom fighters" (Osama bin Laden among them)) when they were occupied by, and fighting against, Russia (during the Cold War). Americans have selective memory.

We did? Get out of here? I can't believe it. I never would have know if you hadn't told me. Well. My entire world view is changed.

He's just going to catch up on all the stuff his mentor, Frank Marshall Davis , forgot to teach him about communisim.

He'll be ready to seal the deal, for the formerly america, when he gets back.

In your, and Frank Marshall Davis's eyes, he's doing a hell of a job, comrade Brian

I wonder why over 65% of americans and over 80% of people in europe/asia/africa like Obama. May be because he is not an idiot.
Obama is THE ONE! and no matter how much bad mouthing these losers do, it's not going to work.
Maybe because the media is biased and reports it that way? And then there's the race issue. Let's face it, most non-whites will support anyone not White. Even evil persons like Mugabe.

And let's not forget that more Americans "Strongly disapprove" of Obambi than "stongly approve". In polling, that's negative.

Germans love to argue from a perspective of racial superiority. Look how far it got them in 1945. I bet this guy has a shaved head.
