This author has it all wrong and devestatingly so. The reason the US is being targetted is due to the current war on so called terrorism. It just so happens that it involves the US and any number of Muslim nations. Well the Muslim extremists are fighting back. They are showing the US that they will not siit back while the US military bombs their countries back to the stone age. So far from being a weak sister, Obama unfortunately has chosen the path of confrontation and war. Where this author got his misinformation from is a mystery. All I see when I read the news is more war.
