"Obama pledges support for Israel", but that isn't what caught my eye. In criticising the current administrations policies in the 'Middle East', "He said the war in Iraq had emboldened Iran, which posed a real, grave danger". Nonsense, personally what I think is unacceptable is that the Western consumer is now having to walk, instead of drive, because of high oil prices. After 5 years of occupying Iraq and Americans get this? $130 a barrel?
