Sir Obama.....if you and your policy maker has enough guts then do visit inside Tibet. If you beleive in truth then let's talk something on Tibet now. Baghdad, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Burma, N Korea......I heard you enough in 2012. Now we are in 2013. If I called, "The year of Tibet", is not a big surprising at all.......right Sir?

Burma  ?   Really ?   Why isn't he in the oval office trying to work up a plan to create jobs ?   Maybe he's on that side of the world to pay a visit to his buddy Putin now that he has more flexibility since the election is over.

I forgot this was about Obama. The pictures are beautiful. Burma looks like a great place to visit.

I suppose,  USA is changing its foreign politics to reduce the influence of China in the Southeast Asia region. It may have both positive and negative impacts upon the world's peace, I suppose.

I think President Romney would've praised the little brown people for working so hard for five dollars a day and setting a good example for American labor and then blasted them for not buying thirty-thousand dollar Japanese cars built in the US... in a phone call to Fox of course.

A President Romney would never have gone to Burma as he would not have understood the what we are trying to do there.  Second, if he did go he would probably have us at war with after insulting everyone he came into contact with.
