    Well, your original question added additional emphasis where I didn't place any. So I answered the question in what I could have only imagined you intended it had you simply responded and inquired to what I wrote as I had written it. So badly? That was your addition, I said he was putting his nose in business where it doesn't belong.

    I'm not asking why he's "justified" or not. You are plainly claiming that he actually and already DID stick his nose into that business and interfered jwith it. The question is, what did he do?

    It reeks of arrogance for one government to assume it has, or should have, any authority in another country's affairs.

    The US government's involvement in the Israeli-Palestinian issue and the hypocrisy of scrutinizing the possible nuclear weaponry of Iran & North Korea are two reasons for why there's so much worldwide anti-US sentiment.

    When did Obama assume he has, or should have, any authority in the affairs in this matter? What did he do or say that shows this?

    Agreed. But the comparison to what he's doing in Ireland is not a comparison at all.

    How did the United States come out looking bad in the peace?

    He is sticking his nose in this affair by allowing the US government to be a so-called "partner" and commenting as if the US government has some justification for being there when, instead, he and every other interfering US politician should back off and let the British settle the issue.

    Is sending billions of dollars in financial and military assistance to the Israel govt and politically supporting the Israeli govt on nearly everything not something that would enrage many Muslims and pro-Palestinian people worldwide? Is that your idea of "peace"?

    Does peace include the US government maintaining a massive arsenal of nuclear weapons while demanding that other governments not develop any?

    The United States was a valued partner of peace by the perceptions of both the Northern Irish and the British governments.

    I was not talking about the middle east, and even then, Carter was seen as a valuable partner in the talks. Now, back to Ireland.

    And I'm simply asking you to show what he did. Prove that he put his nose in business where it doesn't belong. Why are you guys throwing such big confident stones while dodging this simple pebble of a question?
