Default what do you think about obamas speech in egypt?

I was listening to the news and they were talking about his upcoming speech and he is directing it toward the Muslims. This is the second speech to them since he became president, and from what I have read he wants to talk about working with iran and to get all on the same views. Does he not know that most people over there hate America and when you try kissing up to them it is not going to work.

Why not worry about our country and our borders and once we fix out on problems we can worry about the rest of the world?


Something doesnt seem right, that he is so concerned with what the Muslim world thinks of the usa

For some reason the rest of the world fucking loves him.
So yes, I do think it will help.

I work with quite a few people from around the globe on my current project. Everyone of them thinks the president is the fucking man (I have no idea why).

Yes, I'm sure Obama is well aware that Many Muslims hate us. As suggested above, his intent is to try to get them to hate us less. I think he will have some success with that, how much one time will tell.

2 reasons come to mind...

1. The guy before him pissed off most of the rest of the world.
2. He is trying to make the USA more like the rest of the world. (in good and bad ways)

Egypt hates the extreme terriorists as much as we do and runs them out of their country if they are found camping out there.

Google the Luxor Massacre if you want more details.

Having them as an ally is a good thing. They already hate the Taliban and other extremist groups and like the American Tourism.

In part:In the mid-morning attack, terrorists from the Islamic Group and Jihad Talaat al-Fath ("Holy War of the Vanguard of the Conquest") massacred 63 people at the attraction. The six assailants were armed with automatic firearms and knives, and disguised as members of the security forces. They descended on the Temple of Hatshepsut at around 08:45. With the tourists trapped inside the temple, the killing went on systematically for 45 minutes. The dead included a five-year-old British child and four Japanese couples on their honeymoons.[3][4]

The attackers then hijacked a bus, but ran into a checkpoint of armed Egyptian tourist police and military forces. One of the terrorists was wounded in the shootout and the rest fled into the hills where their bodies were found in a cave, apparently having committed suicide together.[5]


The more countries we have that hate extreme terrorist groups the better. Having any muslim county on our side against terrorism is a good thing.

I agree that if the Middle East likes us more, it sure as hell isn't going to hurt but to say that we shouldn't have stereotypes against them. I'll stop stereotypting when they stop trying to kill us.
