The assault on US consulates/embassies in Cairo, Egypt and in Benghazi, Libya recently puts the lie to the claims that Islamic nations can exist as democratic nations that contribute something to the rest of the world -- something other than war and bloodshed.
The whole thing smacks of Jimmy Carter and the US embassy take over in Tehran. I had one flashback after the other as I watched the stories flooding out of Libya. And why not? The causation is the same -- incompetence by the then -- and current -- presidential administration of the United States.
Obama looked and sounded like Jimmy Carter using some of the very same phraseology Carter used when Ronald Reagan condemned Carter's handling of the hostage crisis in Iran under his (Carter's) watch.
Those of us who raised cautions when the US was interfering in the uprisings in both Egypt and Libya can now feel justified, not that we didn't already. We warned then that we were only replacing one "America hating regime" with another "America hating regime." Turns out -- once again -- we were right!
It's called "common sense." There's no magic to it. It takes no degree in geopolitics to be able to view the world in the cold, hard, light of reality.
I'm told that an act of war is a state sponsored attack against another sovereign state. We've been assured that neither of the latest attacks on US territory, our embassies, qualify as acts of war. How, exactly, do we know? I mean -- for sure, how do we know.
The utter naivete of the US State Department is legendary. It is immeasurable.
It's amateur hour at the White House and at the State Department.

The apologies show weakness and imply guilt.
Carter is Obama. Obama is Carter.
Both are Traitor Losers, who hate America!
Jimmy Carter's presidency was doomed by the Iranian hostage crisis after the US embassy in Tehran was stormed by Islamist extremists following the Iranian revolution.
A year after the 52 Americans were taken hostage, Carter lost the 1980 election. The hostages were released just as President Ronald Reagan, who defeated Carter, was sworn in.

It is past time to fire Barack and have him hit the road back to Chicago!
