Foe: Russia

Although Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin have avoided any nasty exchanges, sometimes what’s left unsaid speaks louder than words. The two statesmen had a very awkward encounter at the G-20 summit earlier this year when Putin failed to back Obama’s push for regime change in Syria. (Photo: EPA/Alexi Nikolsky/Ria Novosti/Kremlin Pool/Landov)
