Barack Obama shoots hoops with an enthusiastic crowd of U.S. troops in Kuwait, his first stop before heading into Iraq.

"I am just very proud of the extraordinary work that the troops are doing here in Kuwait; you're providing all the logistical support that's needed for folks in the battlefield, and without you, this effort would not be successful," Obama told the troops .

Obama is touring nations in Southern Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
