What about SEATO? Does it still exist?

Did anybody notice that this escalation in violence was timed to coincide with President Obama's trip to South East Asia. As a result, everyone is talking about Israel and Palestine and the president's visit is not getting the attention it deserves.

It is reassuring to see how much the BBC covered his trip and his speeches while also giving lots of coverage to the narcissistic situation in the Middle East.

The US media has been lacking in giving this visit the attention it deserves - Specially to help us ignorant Americans to understand the significance of SE Asia.
