People always get attracted the way world leaders conduct themselves in active manner and draw comparison with our own leaders.

However US President Barack Obama’s salute created a storm. True that Obama salutes stylishly. But only difference is he offered a less than formal salute to a Marine standing guard as he exited the presidential helicopter, Marine One with a coffee cup in hand.

This at once attracted stinging criticism from National Republican Congressional Committee  and others. Saluting armed persons is regarded in high esteem showing them they are superior and every one respects them. Earlier former president George Bush created controversy with an awkward salute along with his dog.
