    After the unprecedented mess he made out of the mideast peace process, stalled since the day he took office because of his ineptitude, dragging both parties into his senseless "construction freeze" idea, the best thing Obama can do for emerging democracy movements in the Muslim world is to STFU and stay out of the picxture. Remember, this guy is the idiot who (until a month ago) was brainlessly promoting Assad as a reformer and peacemaker; this is the guy who decided to reward Assad for the Hariri assassination and rocket smuggling violations of UNSC1701 by returning the US ambassador to Damascus over the objections of everybody else in the US government - to "prove" he was right and Bush was wrong by isolating Syria. The history of the last 3 weeks proves again the appalling "judgement" of cheap Chicago political hack in our White House. This clown wants us all to think because Navy Seals killed Bin Laden, Al-Qaidah is no longer a problem.That is why Israel will continue to ignore him, no "risks for peace" with him in office - he's just too dishonest and too dumb to do his job.
