Some global adversaries ready to give Obama chance

In his inaugural address, President Barack Obama signaled conciliation to America's foes by using the
metaphor of an outstretched hand to an unclenched fist.

Already, there are signs that some of those foes were listening, sensing an opening for improved relations after eight combative years under President George W. Bush.

Fidel Castro is said to like the new American leader, and
North Korea and
Iran both sounded open to new ideas to defuse nuclear-tinged tensions.

Unclear is what they will demand in return from the untested American statesman, and whether they will agree to the compromises the U.S. is likely to insist on in exchange for warmer relations.

Are the Castro brothers really willing to move toward democracy?

*** Why does Cuba have to be a democracy?
Who made THAT Rule?

Can Russia and the West heal their widening estrangement?
*** USA should let THEM work that out
there are to many problems in the USA
that YOU need to solve.

Will Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez stop being a thorn in America's side?
*** Chevez sees the USA
as a - "thorn in HIS side".
