This Turkish anchorman is obviously gunning for a spot on the Fox news team…
He made need to tone down the subtlety a tad though.

I was really dismissive of all those conservatives who suspected that Barack Obama was a secret Muslim terrorist, but I don't know.
Here he is visiting a Muslim country and not in a fighter jet full of crates that are full of cans that are themselves filled with whoop ass…
Fulfilling a campaign promise to speak in a Muslim capital during the first 100 days of his presidency, President Obama addressed the Turkish parliament Monday. His message was one of unity, and it had quite a different feel from the rhetoric of Obama's predecessor.
"I know there have been difficulties these last few years. I know that the trust that binds us has been strained, and I know that strain is shared in many places where the Muslim faith is practiced," Obama said. "Let me say this as clearly as I can: the United States is not at war with Islam. In fact, our partnership with the Muslim world is critical in rolling back a fringe ideology that people of all faiths reject."
Christ! What is he doing?! Doesn't he know the first thing about diplomacy? You never admit that you're not currently waging war on a country, or they lose all respect for you. As far as the world is concerned, we should be consider at war with every single country. Even Liechtenstein. (Especially Liechtenstein!)
We need to have them afraid that we're about to kill them That way, they want to be our friends.
Come on. It's Foreign Policy 101.
