Let's start with one of those "nobody's perfect" public typos in which the Osama became Obama:
As you know, I really don't think that the "execution" of Osama bin Laden will make the world any safer. The Teflon terrorists are being praised and protected by most of the world, including the United States and its President Barack Hussein Obama. There are those mirrored sayings:
"Any friend of yours is a friend of mine." "Your enemy is my enemy."
Among six predominantly Muslim countries recently surveyed, Muslims in the Palestinian territories voiced the most support for the assassinated al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, a poll released on Monday showed. (complete article)
And about all that praise of U.S. President Obama, as if he was the chief planning officer of that commando unit that killed Bin Ladin... The American military had been working on it for ten years, long before Obama even ran for the United States Presidency. He had nothing to do with the planning and even less to do with the execution. He was just lucky to be the U.S. President on the right day. It doesn't make him a better president. It doesn't prove his military expertise.
The world as we know it is still in danger of Arab terrorism, and the world's movers and shakers refuse to recognize the source of the danger. Instead they keep funding it. Throwing Israel to the sharks will only make those terrorists hungrier, not pacify it.
