    I sure would like to know how you would handle the things going around in the world...maybe 25000 dead merican soldiers or a nuclear bomb dropped on someone
    I find the lack of logic in humans most disturbing...

    Well, this thread degenerated into hyper-partisan claptrap by post #2. Didn't see that coming. Nope.

    So I assume one must be a foreign leader to answer this poll, as its silly to ask a bunch of lay people, most of which have never left the continent, to tell us what a foreign leader thinks...

    So, in answering, do we list what country we lead?

    People on DP are more than happy to comment on things they know nothing about. Congratulations for starting a thread that actually asks them to do so.

Out of politeness they refrain from outright laughter.

    Folks in North Yorkshire are not generally known for being "gentle" so I appreciate their restraint.
    I had similar experience traveling about Europe during the Bush administration. There's another thread up pointing out a poll that shows the US with the highest global regard, and Russia with the lowest, mostly Europeans effecting the poll.

    You completely ignored the post you quoted and repeated your Putin meme. Putin prevented another senseless American war in the ME, to which I'm delighted.

    Obama should have supported Gadaffi. While he was not a friend of the US, at the time of his death he was not hostile to our interests. The Libyan people ousted him, not Obama in any event. Now Libya can be considered to be another of Obama's Middle East failures. Bin Laden was not a world leader which brings me to this.

    What world leaders see Obama as a strong leader and why? Drone strikes are not leadership by the way.

    Lol. Without US/NATO bombing campaign and SOF's on the ground, the "Libyan people" wouldn't have done dick.

    Who the f cares what other leaders think of Obama? Why do you?

    I could care less.

    No one is invading America anytime soon, that is all that matters.

    Walk softly and carry a big stick...and Obama carries the most powerful stick in world history. Only an insecure egotist needs him to strut around like a babbling rooster.

    I don't know how Obama would have reacted in Syria without Russian involvement. Truth be told, I don't know why Assad is on the enemies list. He's not a good guy, but the world is full of not good guys.

    In any event, I think that Obama would have chosen to do nothing in Syria but blather. Obama's foreign policy consists of supporting radical Islamists, opposing secular leaders and not involving our military in any activity which involves taking enemy captives. He would much rather drone them and leave their bodies on the ground and not in GITMO which he is trying to empty so he can close. On it's best day his foreign policy is incoherent and on it's worse non existent.

    Letterman said it best. Obama will not start a war unless ISIS attacks a golf coarse.

    Regime change in Syria is a long time USFP goal, that far predates Obama. Of course you can know what Obama would have done in Syria were it not for Russian (and Chinese don't forget) obstruction. I've only told you three times that Obama dispatched Clinton to the UN on three occasions to secure a UNSCR for the use of force in Syria, FORCE, by our military is what Obama's reaction would have been in Syria. Thanks to Russia and China, that was avoided.
