In an effort to repair the broken alliances with foreign leaders in the Muslim nations, Barack Obama prepares to speak before a major capital city. The recent attacks in Mumbai suggest continued tension between Muslim youth radicals and other religious faction in the region. Rather than shy away from those problematic relations, the President-elect has chosen a more active approach.
From The Telegraph:
“The message I want to send is that we will be unyielding in stamping out the terrorist extremism we saw in Mumbai,” said Mr Obama, who gave the interview from his transition team’s offices in Chicago.
