Obama Needs to be Even Nicer

Apparently all the apologies and bowing to the Muslim nations is not enough. During the 2008 campaign, Obama seemed to think that he could solve the problems in the middle east (not to mention Darfur, North Korea, Russia, and everywhere else in the world) if would just apologize to everyone and "be nice."  They'll all listen. They'll all be happy to work with us. They want peace. They want to be friends with the USA.

Really?

Apparently, Obama hasn't been nice enough. The AP is reporting today...

Al Qaeda chieftain Usama bin Laden warned Americans to "be prepared to receive the consequences" of the Obama and Bush administrations, Al Jazeera TV reported Wednesday.



Bin Laden, in a recorded message broadcast by the Arab news network, said Obama had planted the seeds for "revenge and hatred" toward the United States in the Muslim world, Reuters reported.



The message comes as President Obama arrived in Saudi Arabia, a day ahead of his speech to the Muslim world at Cairo University.



Bin Laden says Obama inflamed hatred by ordering Pakistan to crack down on militants in Swat Valley and block Islamic law in the area.



He claimed U.S. pressure led to a campaign of "killing, fighting, bombing and destruction" that prompted the exodus of a million Muslims from Swat Valley in northwest Pakistan.



The message was broadcast at almost the same moment Obama touched down in Saudi Arabia.



FBI official says that — while the tape may appear real — investigators are reviewing the recording for authenticity and any other information that may help them.



The timing of this tape is not a coincidence given the timing of the president's Mideast trip.

This trip scares me. I wonder what concessions he will make to be loved, especially after saying Iran has the right to nuclear power.
