Afraid to offend? Or afraid period? Why is Obama avoiding certain countries that we have ties with?

Appeaser in Chief: Obama Skips Normandy to Avoid Offending Germany

 

The beaches of Normandy were secured on D-Day at the cost of 12,000 out of 156,000 troops, but even then Normandy itself was not entirely secured until two months later. D-Day paved the way for the Allied forces to establish a stronghold in France and later liberate Paris.

D-Day was the largest single-day amphibious invasion of all time, with over 130,000 troops landing on June 6,1944. 195,700 Allied naval and merchant navy personnel were involved.
The US suffered 6,603 fatalities on D-Day more than the 6 years the US has been in Iraq.

Barack Obama, concerned about offending Britain and Germany, rebuffed strenuous attempts by President Nicolas Sarkozy of France to persuade the new American president to make a trip to Normandy this week.

Would not surprise me a bit.  Thats what Obama is working so hard towards.  Not offending people.  I guess it all depends on whats going on at the time The audacity of convenience....
