    Default o-bow-ma


    Obama has bowed to the Saudi king

    Obama has bowed to the Japanese emperor.

    Obama has bowed in China.

    What is it with obama? Does he think or believe he, as a man, is subservient or not equal to these other world leaders? When he does it he is obviously in an official capacity, does he think or believe the US president is subservient to other world leaders? Does he believe the United States of America is a subservient nation? Does he just not see the significance of such an action on the world stage?

    What do you think, believe or feel when you see him bowing?

    Also, how does the bowing in those situations square with not giving or offering a similar bow to the Queen of England?

    Osama loves to bow and scrape to other politicians almost as much as he likes to dis America.

    Bowing is not part of our culture, but it is in other cultures. It is not a always asign of subservience. It is a sign of respect to greet a person according to their culture, especially if you plan to do business with them. And it does not mean the loss of one drop of testosterone, either.

    It is most definitely a sign of subservience depending on hight of bow compared to those around you etc. If you bow lower or at all in some cases you have given the more respected position to the other.

    And you are viewing this from THEIR perspective?

    How come you continue fooling yourself into thinking those towel-heads see it as you do? Much like so many other sheeple in this country, that is the height of ignorance.

    They don't view it as respect, it's a show of power by the one being bowed to.

    You may want to read up some on the Jihad way of life. It's more than just suicide and expecting a future of sex with virgins.

    O.K. Brother man, I lived in Japan for 3 years. 1985-88. When you bow in respect you tip your head. Your shoulders don't get involved. The bow that Osama gave was from the waist. He lowered his shoulders almost to the man's waist. It was disgusting and a bow even a Japanese would see as a sign of subservience. They were laughing at him on Japanese language news.
