Bow to Nobody - YouTube
They'll sure as Hell salute an officer on the Saudi military, though.
Hack-worthy, but that's about all this is.
The US Navy works for the UN now, Obama and Panetta said so.
The UN Navy is a "Global Force for Good" you know.
have to give you rep for that avatar, cracked me up just now.
WTF does a soldier saluting a superior officer in the military directly in charge of his location have to do with the President of the United States bowing to foreign leaders?
They are both long established American practices that are intended to show respect. Why is this suddenly a problem now? Where was your outrage before?

The first picture is Bush receiving a medal, dumb ass, not bowing to show subservience.
NONE of the pictures you post show a subservient bow. Those cultures, unlike the Middle East, consider bowing a sign of respect, not subservience.
In the Middle East, a bow shows subservience... period. It is meant to show the person you are bowing to that you recognize they are of a higher stature and importance than you are.
Translation: It's acceptable when a Republican does it.
when did anti-democrats become so ignorant?
