Obama and the Middle East

Dry Bones cartoon: Obama, Arab Spring, Egypt, kirschen Syria, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Sudan, Lebanon, Israel, palestine,
June 2009
-The President's first Presidential visit. In a major speech from Cairo, he reached out to the Moslem world.

December 2010

-Arab Spring riots and protests begin,sweeping from Tunisia,through Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, hitting Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Sudan, Lebanon, and Syria.
I, of course am not saying that the President is, or was, in any way, responsible for the unrest, but I just hope that on this, his second visit to the area, he's not planning to make any major speeches.
