    The ends justify the means (the killing of innocent civilians) huh? Where have I heard that before? Oh yeah from the terrorists. Guess we are not too different after all!

    Isn't that the truth. Thankfully even most conservatives think stuff like this is not worth making a big deal over.

    Yes, that's right, he bows, to kings and emperors. The man disgraces the office of the President, and our country.
    "Conservative" says it all.

    Well if you want to live in Kindergarten where everyone is equal, and we all play nice, I suggest you become a kindergarten teacher. If you want to live in the real World, however, there are prices to be paid, bad things to be done, and ends to be reached. This is REALITY and it looks like no time in the near future will yield the happy, "peace and love" delusion that you seem to want to live in. Either get used to it, or go live in a some hippie community, where everyone loves each other and you sit around a campfire singing about togetherness.

    For the first time in our long history, we finally have a President who is respectful of others.
    He sets an example for our nation to follow.., another first, evidently.

    You are the one that used the famous Kindergarten expression, "they started it!"

    When you lower yourself to the enemies level what have you gained? This in not hippies setting around a campfire, this what we teach our children.

    If we bomb countries that never attacked us and kill innocent civilians, we can only expect the same treatment.

    That's true and not true. There are subtle differences in the depth of the bow, whether you avert your eyes or not, etc.

    Yeah, from what I know of japanese culture, that bow was highly inappropriate for our president to make. A deep nod while maintaining eye contact was sufficient.

    It's just more of Obama's inexperience showing through. More of something to laugh at the buffoon about than get angry over.

    You're arguing that we should have turned the other cheek to the slaughter of our forces in the Pacific and then imply that he's the unrealistic hippy sitting around the campfire?
