What a wimp.

Has there ever been a less manly president? At least Carter served in WW2.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki will be just perfect for Obama. He'll aologize profusely for our inhuamnity to man, and nary a word about what the Japanese had been up to during the decade before those cities would bombed. Obama will enjoy it and so will the Japanese, who love to remember that part of WWII, while forgetting all the rest.

Actually, I don't care it he does visit those cities. That would deepen even further the contempt in which more and more Americans now hold this ridiculous poser.

It fits perfectly with Obama’s worldview of America as the root of all evil. Obama is uncomfortable in situations that hold forth America as playing a positive role in the world, such as the 20th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. He is far more comfortable when in the position of apologizing for the United States, and underscoring his belief that America only became good when She ushered him into office on a wave of white guilt.

I agree with all the other posters, there’s only one reason 0bama would go to those sites.

He didn’t go to Berlin for fear he’d hear praise about a great American president who actually stood for something good, moral, and right: freedom.

wow...what a p****. while his commander waits around, getting more and more embarassed, waiting for an urgent answer to his troop request, obama is sitting around trying to come up with more places he can visit to show how sorry he is for his adopted country’s victorious past.

I can hear the apology now...

"I apologize for the uhh, white gaijin imperialists who destroyed your beautiful cities, interrupted your sovereign order, and overthrew your efficient government. In conspesation, I uhhh, offer myself as your new, nuclear-free divine emperor-god. Less Tojo, more mojo!"

The only reason Odumbo would visit Pearl Harbor would be to apologize for our pre-war belligerence that forced the Japanese to attack. He certainly wouldn't go there to put Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the proper historical context since to him, there is no such thing as a justified American action.

Pay close attention.

This may be his venue to announce our nations leadership in eliminating our entire nuclear weapons arsenal as a sign of moral strength.

But not the Berlin Wall. I guess he only wants to go places where he has to apologize for our actions.

It will be the perfect site to explain why the U.S. should get rid of all their nuclear arms, at least with clinton we would have gotten a hawk.

Tell you what, Obama: you can apologize for us using the bomb in the war if they apologize for freakin' starting it. And for their cowardly sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. And for all their atrocities to our soldiers, POWs, the Koreans, the Chinese... Go ahead, apologies all around. I'd suggest Dec. 7th would be a fine day for you to visit.

Carter never served in WW2, or any other war for that matter. His service was all peace time.

I'm getting confused, is he going to apologize to Japan for the atom bombs before or after he apologizes to China for hindering their unification efforts with Taiwan or is he apologizing for Bush meeting with the Dali Lama and going to North Korea to apologize for the Korean war??

It is hard for an old man like me to keep up with these things.

Yes, he will most certainly apologize while there.

(Did the Japs (to use that term specifically in its place) ever apologize for the Bataan Death March? The Hell ships used to kill prisoners by starvation and heat? The torture camps in Guam, Philippines, Taiwan, Malaysia, and China?

He probably appologized to Russia that we pressured them to tear down that wall.

Also, many American POWs were killed by friendly fire because the Japanese declined to mark their transports as carrying prisioners.
