What do you think about President Obama's no show in Paris regarding showing solidarity with
world leaders over the Paris bombings of French civilians?
I think it's a disgrace the US wasn't represented appropriately in Paris. We're always so reverent about 9/11 here-- and the world stood with us. We drove to Canada the week after 9/11/2001. From Detroit to Toronto, Canadian flags were half-mast. Every-- and I mean every-- place we stopped people expressed their sorrow when they found out we were from the US. It was a humbling and deeply gratifying experience.
While the U.S. probably could have sent someone, a no-show doesn't always represent a slight or a lack of caring. If it did, world leaders would be sanctioning all kinds of bad stuff in the world simply because they can't be everywhere at once. The real tragedy here is the massacre, not who did and didn't go to France afterwards.
