WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will become the first U.S. president to visit Myanmar and Cambodia when he travels to the Asian nations later this month. The White House says Obama will also visit Thailand. The trip comes less than two weeks after Obama's re-election.

He’s supposed to go to Turkey too. Got to get their stories straight on the gun-running. Doubt he’ll be going to Israel anytime soon. Maybe he’ll wait until after his muzzie friends have taken it out.

Mostly Third World, non-white rulers and state officials. Expect to see a new round of bowing by Obama.

Probably just checking on the progress of the jihad in the East.

Thailand: Muslims commit genocide of Thai Buddhists for not bending to Islam (Graphic images)

http://themuslimissue.wordpress.com/2012/11/08/thailand-muslim-genocide-of-thai-buddhists-for-not-bending-to-islam-graphic/

It’s VERY graphic yet it is celebrated by the koranimals throughout the Ummah.

While I understand the need to go to Bangcock, are there golf courses in Burma? Cambodia needs an apology for letting Pol Pot stray too far from Communist norms, reeducation casualties were 50% too high.

Now that he doesnt have to campain anymore he can concentrate on Golf and spending just as much money on White House partys and vacations as humanly possible.

Can’t wait till they float keeping him for a 3rd term.

That’s not why he’s going to those three countries. You are going to see the mask start slipping more and more on the Islam thing.

He’s going to wave the flag over there, the one with the crescent on it.

Figures. Barry needs a nice little trip about now.
But lemme guess on why he picked these places: Bathhouse Barry, call home.
They miss you in Boystown.

Going to Cambodia? Maybe he can get Sen. John F. Kerry to guide him. After all, Nixon sent Kerry there in 1968, and his excursion into Cambodia is seared - SEARED - into his memory.

Sacrifice - Child Prostitutes from Burma (Part 1 of 5)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qo3QCVnNX7I

“Each year thousands of young girls are recruited from rural Burmese villages to work in the sex industry in neighboring Thailand. Held for years in debt bondage in illegal Thai brothels, they suffer extreme abuse by pimps, clients, and the police.

The trafficking of Burmese girls has soared in recent years as a direct result of political repression in Burma. Human rights abuses, war and ethnic discrimination has displaced hundreds of thousands of families, leaving families with no means of livelihood. An offer of employment in Thailand is a rare chance for many families to escape extreme poverty.

Sacrifice examines the social, cultural, and economic forces at work in the trafficking of Burmese girls into prostitution in Thailand. It is the story of the valuation and sale of human beings, and the efforts of teenage girls to survive a personal crisis born of economic and political repression.”

“Obama to visit Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand”

IIRC all three of those countries are either recently Muslim, or are transitioning to Islam, or are fighting takeover by Islamic Jihadists.

In all cases the common denominator is Islam welcomed, or not.

God must weep. The horror we commit on our children is unthinkable. That the police are complicit is an abomination. I’m grateful for Western values.
