Oh and lets not forget the achievement of handing Afghanistan back to the terrorists. We can't continue this fight alone, so trying to find Muslim allies is a bad thing????

So I don't believe trying a different approach is a bad thing.
Of course that is the standard Anti-America .. America-Is-Always-Wrong drone like response you would recall from the cliche-banks.

But what has happened in Iraq is that the people have lived through first-hand the hell the Jihadists would love to have Iraq be ruled under.. and now they have a real stake in preventing that since they worked hard in defeating it themselves with our help.

That is of course granting that there is some form of rational thought over there.

I want you liberals to tell me one good thing that can come of Obama pandering to extremist nations?

These extremists are brainwashed into killing every non-Muslim on earth to fulfill Muhammad's Koran prophecies and create a one world globalist government that resides under Shaira Law and you dolts think pandering is a good idea?

Typical liberal ideology "if you cant beat em, join em"...

I dont think a lot of you understand that its the extremists that are calling the shots in the Muslim world. These extremists are basically holding the decent Muslims hostage and the best thing Obama can think of is speaking to the terrorists. Ill tell you this, talking to the hostages a la the decent Muslims wont do any good because they have no power.

The only way to even win this war is to fight fire with fire because thats the language they speak, terrorism.

Of course Obama is just going to give them free billions of tax payer money to "behave" while hes in office but I'm sure the second hes out and the next president is in and doesnt want to pay them to stop acts of terrorism it will be back to business as usual.

Yea enough money can fix anything I guess, gotta look good for the camera I assume.

its called appeasement. they only respect strength and this will only show more US weakness. they are used to leaders who say different things to different audiences, better to just let them guess where the next daisy-chain will drop

My bet is one of the cities near West Asia which is in turmoil. Possibly UAE or Oman.
Wish it's my country, Malaysia. A small peaceful Muslim nation of diverse races.
We love him. He's most welcome to be our president.
Unfortunately we have a monarchy system like Britain.

So basically what your saying is its not worth fighting terrorism because we cant win so we should all just get used to Sharia Law and all becaome Muslims now? You know thats WHAT THE EXTREMISTS WANT RIGHT?

Extremists Muslims dont care how many lives it takes to create a one world Islamic government ruled by Sharia Law.

It astounds me you liberals cry about "separation of church and state" but your the biggest supporters of Islamic run governments in the free world.

Based on the headline - I thought he was going to move the white house there to be close to family! What a corrupt dirt bag Obama is. He blatantly lied about speaking with Blago about he senate seat - but dont' expect the press to push him on it. Obama is a LIAR!

Liberals just want a weak US period. They think we have no business stomping out extremism and telling other countries they cant commit genocide.

Of course these same idiot liberals are running around here in America preaching civil rights. Extremely hypocritical if you ask me.

These Islamic nations hang homosexuals and stone rape victims but the liberals like Obama want to go over their and pander to them but come back home and cry about racism.

He probably won't just pick a city and go there. The visit would most likely be accompanied by an event or treaty or alliance to be celebrated. That prevents the potential jealousy from the cities that are not selected for the appearance.

How about Baghdad, approximately 16 months from now, celebrating the end of the American occupation, and the final step in the liberation of Iraq?

You should go back and re-read the transcript of Obama's speech in Berlin during the campaign. I know you have no intention of doing so, therefore I will simply summarize: Obama went to a major European capital and said that America had a lot of work to do but so did Europe. He ticked off a number of unpopular things that Europeans must do. And he was cheered. His speech made him even more favored in Europe.

This is the model for the Muslim world. Obama will go in and talk about things that both America and the Muslim world must do to end terrorism. He will gain the trust and the respect of the majority of Muslims around the world. And that is the only way to end terrorism. The only thing that has worked in Iraq and Afghanistan has been to gain the trust of the locals and to allow them to discover that working with the Americans is better than working against us. The Taliban and Al Queda have always been seen as unwanted outsiders but were tolerated because they were fighting against a greater enemy. We aren't that greater enemy and they need to discover that.

Amman, Jordan could be an acceptable spot. As a former part of the Ottoman Empire, and a former part of Palestine, it represents a modern Arab state with a pragmatic view of Israel and the West.

Why not come to our back yard, Dearborn, Michigan, where one of the largest, most diverse, Islamic group of people in the world live? In fact, if one believes what folks from that city say, they are the center of Islam in this country...

Imagine how happy we are to have them in our backyard.

I believe Saudi Arabia (at like Al-Riyahdh or even Mecca) would be the best place for President-elect Obama to deliver his speech to the Muslim world. Islam started from there, and we must not forget that most of Al-Qaeda extremists either come from there, or get fund from Shiekhs and wealthy men over there, but it might be a little dangerous though. Honestly, I don't see any place in the Muslim world that is not dangerous, unless it's Indonesia, but still a bit dangerous.

Wow. Someone reads a script written for him and I'm supposed to actually listen to the words as if they're meaningful?

In case you haven't figured this out , Obama is nearly incoherent when he's not reading something and has to speak off-the-cuff... and he NEVER uses the vocabulary that he does when he's Telepromptering.

We know Europeans go for that sort of thing.

Americans shouldn't be impressed by such obvious nonsense.

And yet.. here we are.

Hmm I have an idea.. why not go to the Porte in Constantinople and reestablish the Caliphate/Khalifah and he can be al-Mahdi?
