I described two leaders showing each other respect by treating each other as equals.

You obviously have not done much negotiating in the Middle East because if you did you would understand that negotiations in that part of the world do not even start unless the other party feels they are negotiating from position of respect and strength. People of power in Arab world do not negotiate with people who do not have the power to make the decision. If you are not at least their equal you are a none starter.

So please, do us all a favor and stop with the obfuscation. You must have been tired. I guess it can be understood with men of your advanced experience.
I really wish you would take some reading comprehension courses. It would help with these conversations. Also, please point out where I obfuscate or mischaracterize. Just typing the words doesn't do jack.

As for negotiation in the Middle East, yes, I have had three projects for which I have either been Prime or sub Project Manager in the past 15 years in the Middle East. And your copious experience?

And don't worry about my advanced experience. I remember back when I was young and thought I had a clue and kidded the older guys. When I was promoted to Captain at 25 a mentor who had retired 30 years earlier told me the best thing I could do was collect the advice and wisdom of those who had been along the path before me. I chose to absorb that advice and run with it. It has served me well in the 32 years since.

Even if Obama did bow, then so what? As far as I'm concerned, Obama should have bent over even more and should have kissed the King's ass. They bail us out financially, invest in our country, sell us as much oil as we need, raise production of oil every time we ask them to and own roughly 30% of our economy which Bush destroyed, causing Saudis to loose hundreds of Billions, perhaps trillions.

You guys are pissed that obama bowed down? If you are so pissed then DO SOMETHING! Get rid of your cars and get bicycles. Move out of your comfortable homes and get 1 bedroom homes MUCH closer to work. We won't have to depend on them. Until you do this you have no fucking right to be bitching. So all of you who are pissed, shut the fuck up or first do as I have suggested. Quit be freakin' hypocrites.

Hey...that's right. How come no one told Bush & Cheney, Stu you failed the country when you did not notify the Bush administration.......

Hey Stu, are you bitter? Someone thinks so......
