With the inauguration of Barack Obama as the new president of U.S., the feud between U.S. and the Muslim extremists in Middle East may not take any U-turn. However, a new dimension has been set - it is now a matter of Obama vs Osama.
The foreign policies of U.S. are not expected to deviate much under the new president. U.S. has been treading along Great Americana line with the preservation of American interests as the underlying principles. No past presidents could afford to deviate away from this national policy.
Likewise, Obama is not going to pawn the American interests for some regional amicable settlement. The history has told us that all American presidents had got to be prepared to go to war for the sake of American interests.
President Obama in his inauguration speech said that U.S. is in a state of risks unprecedented in the history. This calls for his intelligence to take on the external affairs affecting the interests of U.S.
All the best to you, Mr. President!
