Obama Faces Backlash Abroad Amid Libyan Turmoil - FoxNews.com

Two years ago, President Obama was cheered in the Middle East and around the world as he toured capital cities on a diplomatic mission of reconciliation following an administration defined by two wars.
Last week looked a little different.

Crowds shouted "down with Obama" in Mali, burned him in effigy in Sri Lanka and, in Spain, brought back a slogan once used to attack George W. Bush -- "no more blood for oil."

Obama's decision to enter Libya in hopes of preventing a slaughter at the hands of Muammar al-Qaddafi could, despite its best intentions, accelerate a public-opinion shift in some quarters of the world away from the U.S. president.
SOSDD. I actually feel some degree of pity for Obama in this regard, he's in a damned if you do, damned if you don't scenario. Much like GWB was. It didn't take long for the Islamic world's "blame America first" mantra to begin.

While he was campaigining, did he not say that an act of war, he would not go into unless it was his last resort! i think i many have a video of hims saying this. And he would seek to get permission, did he this time! I have no pity for him, he seems to have everything planned out down to his TELEVISIED SPEECHES.
