Mixed reaction in Iraq after Obama wins the Presidential race
People all around the world were mostly happy with President Obama being re-elected for his second tenure as the US president for four more years. But, there was some mixed reactions from citizens of Iraq.

BARACK OBAMA has been grabbing headlines all over the world for being re-elected as the US President for the second time running, which is a great feat looking at the stiff competition which he had to face from Mitt Romney during the Presidential race. People in Iraq also have been discussing about whether he is the right person to be the President of US in terms of US-Iraq relations. Iraqi people gave mixed reactions.

“Obama's victory is a victory for all democrats in the world. He was the first black person to enter the White House and that is something joyful. We as Iraqis rejoice equality between the black and white,” said a person on the streets of Iraq in this AFP video.

The residents of various countries of the Middle East are trying to fight against their leaders and build a better nation. They are united and are looking at the bigger picture, such as the Arab revolution and they think Obama can play an important role in it as well. Another person, who was also pleased with Obama in charge of the US, said in this AFP video, “He will support the Iraqi people more. He will support the new Arab revolution. He will stand with them and stand with freedom. We have seen this with behaviour and action of Barack Obama.”

But not all think that Obama being re-elected is a good thing, as people also see the negative part of it, where he said, “America is hostile. America has established as policeman to the world. So, I think Obama or anyone else cannot do anything positive for the Arabs, Muslim or the Middle East.” But, one also has to understand that the UA is involved in most of the world politics that takes place in the globe.
