It is obvious that Barack Hussein Obama, the current president of United States of America (USA), used a very hypnotic slogan in his presidential campaign last year (2008), which was “CHANGE: We Can Believe In“. That slogan had successfully drugged most people of USA, and even most people of the world, including Indonesia. It is understandable, as he had been expected by the world to be able to change the USA’s foreign policies, after all the mess his predecessor –George Walker Bush– had done with Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantanamo, and most of the Muslim world.
Many people in Indonesia even had more pride and hope on him becoming the president of a superpower country. In my opinion, that was because of one rather unacceptable reason, which was an improper pride of Barry (the nickname of little Obama), concerning that he had been staying and studying in Jakarta for a couple years, when he was just an elementary school kid. They might have different opinion if only they know the truth. Now I can say, don’t expect too much on Obama! Why? I’ll tell you why.
