RENO, Nev. (AP) - Sarah Palin says Barack Obama's foreign policy proposals could lead to global problems if he were elected president. She raised the idea of a "looming crisis" in response to recent remarks by Obama's running mate. Joe Biden predicted that an Obama presidency could invite a "generated crisis" from America's enemies eager to test him. Biden said Obama would be prepared. But Palin said it would be Obama's stands on issues like Iraq and terrorism that would lead to trouble. Among other things, she pointed to Obama's willingness to meet with the world's "worst dictators" without preconditions. She also mentioned that Obama opposed the troop surge in Iraq and voted to cut funding to troops. On a lighter note, the vice presidential nominee thanked Biden for his comments. Palin added that one "looming crisis" could be "Joe Biden's next speaking engagement."
