    It is a matter of Security and Deplomatic preparation. US forces understand these security issues. Obama's overseas trip had positive effect everywhere...!

    I have to laugh when I read comments telling other people to "leave the president alone" or "at least he didn't get a shoe thrown at him" .There are people who would allow this president to do what he wants without a thought to the consequenses. There needs to be political opposition in this county to make democracy work. Just remember every president has had his scandal at sometime during a presidency . I would hope this one would be different , but someone at some point will throw a "shoe" at him . I would like to see just what kind of a reactions that will bring.

    The Republicans must be so mad. The troops LOVED our President. They were so happy to see him. They're finally catching on that the Republicans do not care about them and have placed their lives in danger in an unjust war. This President will only put American lives (our military) in jeopardy if it is justified. God bless our President and our troops!
