What worries me more is that the Islamists are increasing their influence in Asia, Europe as well as Americas.

If we could not reduce their influence and presence during the Bush Administration, then you might as well forget it in Obama's admininistration.
So lets just submit that we failed to do a good job against them- quite honestly.

Look at the harsh criticim of Turkish President of Israel and his walk-out of Devos.

We failed to erase Hezbollah from Lebanon.
We failed to erase Hamas from Gaza.
We failed against Taliban in Afghanistan.
We failed to against AlQaida in Iraq.
We failed against the regime of Ahmedenijad- he is laughing at us, writing letters to Obama.
We failed to limit the Taliban's effect in Pakistan- matter of fact they have just taken over entire City (Swaat)
We failed to take proper actions against Pakistan for their Mombai involvement.

Folks, worst days are ahead...

What's more worrisome is that we don't have any DOLLARS left in our Treasury to continue our efforts.

Worst: Obama is backing-off from all major US involvements.
