It has seriously jeopardized the relationship be tween the two countries.

    There are now going to be further problems with cross border trade, including energy, and the Canadian government has made it clear that the source is Barrack Obama and his czars. Canada is making more deals with China, other Asian nations and in Latin America and a free trade agreement with Europe is close to done. The Canadian government doesn't believe the United States will recover from the financial mess they've created, few do, and are assuming the worst. Of course this holds especially true if B.

    BarObama is reelected but the problems are already so deep that it could be generations to recover, and only then if the will is there.

    Barrack Obama will bow to Saudi royalty while creating animosity in a number of areas with America's closest friends and allies, around the world. But most Americans don't appear to have a clue what's going on and therein lies the real long term dangers.
    How do you feel about China buying up Canadian oil companies? Harper has sold you all out.

    What do you know about the US relationship with Saudi Arabia since 1938?

    I think you are protesting too much.

    Take the 7 billion dollars and invest it in east west pipelines across Canada to Canadian ports and Canadian refineries.

    We have many foreign companies operating in Canada, as does the United States. Most countries welcome foreign investment, and that I even have to explain this to you indicates how deep this problems runs in the United States.

    That's not the topic of discussion.

    I think you are protesting too much.
    Oh?

    A country with many trillions of unpayable debt is in no position to advise anyone. You've screwed the next generation of Americans, thrown trillions down the tube through crony capitalism and now you're offering financial advise to others? Have you no idea of how ridiculous you sound?

    Wow, that's quite a statement considering the past two presidential terms and what went on those eight years! I honestly can't believe things can be diplomatically worse now than they were under Bush.

    Incredible isn't it?

    After 8 years of bush*, they're concerned about bad diplomacy. And they're so worried about a bow, but the following never bothered them

    Holding hands, while discussing business is an Arab tradition. Our generals in Iraq do it, when talking to senior government officials. I figgered you would know that. Or, is their some homophobia coming to the surface here?

    That wasn't the kind of thing I was talking about. If it's the way they were walking and talking, different strokes for different folks. But ...

    Anyone remember our social "ban" on French fries? The French were even less happy at that time. (That was the most extreme (IMO) but there were many others.) Bush ticked off a lot of world leaders and acted more arrogant than any president I've seen/heard ever - even toward what I always thought were our allies. I'm surprised the Brits stuck with us and as it was I bet there was a lot of "Damn Yanks!" talk in the pubs.

    What you believe is not relevant.

    It is not an American tradition in the House of Saud however. I doubt BHO will set a trend for other presidents to follow.

    I certainly don't. When did that take place?

    The French were even less happy at that time. (That was the most extreme (IMO) but there were many others.) Bush ticked off a lot of world leaders and acted more arrogant than any president I've seen/heard ever - even toward what I always thought were our allies.

    The French have been anti American for years. It didn't begin with Bush.

    Many Brits have long been anti American as well but it was Obama who insulted the British leadership and their people. George Bush and Tony Blair, as well as Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, got along very well.
