Skip to comments.Storming Embassies, Killing Ambassadors and 'Smart' Diplomacy
Posted on 09/12/2012 7:10:30 AM PDT by Unam Sanctam
The attacks on the U.S. embassy yesterday in Cairo and the storming of the American consulate in Libya, where the U.S. ambassador was murdered along with three staff members and the initial official American reaction to the mayhem are all reprehensible, each in their own way. Let us sort out this terrible chain of events.
Timing: The assaults came exactly on the eleventh anniversary of bin Ladens and al-Qaedas attack on America. If there was any doubt about the intent of the timing, the appearance of black al-Qaedist flags among the mobs removed it. The chanting of Osama bin Ladens name made it doubly clear who were the heroes of the Egyptian mob. Why should we be surprised by the lackluster response of the Egyptian and Libyan authorities to protect diplomatic sanctuaries, given the nature of the governments in both countries? One of the Egyptian demonstrations organizers was Mohamed al-Zawahiri, the brother of the top deputy to Osama bin Laden, and a planner of the 9/11 attacks, which were led by Mohamed Atta, an Egyptian citizen. In Libya, the sick violence is reminding the world that the problem in the Middle East is not dictators propped up by the U.S. Qaddafi was an archenemy of the U.S. but the proverbial Arab Street that can blame everything and everyone, from a cartoon to a video, for the wages of its own self-induced pathologies. So far, all the Arab Spring is accomplishing is removing the dictatorial props and authoritarian excuses for grass roots Middle East madness.

Here is the 12-minute video trailer that is driving the muslim world and our own libtards (more) insane.
Romney better get tough. This is not a time for caution in defending America.
this all took place on 911..bet it was planned for a long time.
Ugg, sorry for the poor formatting and typoes- the bain of my mobile posting is lack of proper HTML and auto-correct typoes (along with my own).
To all my Muslim friends. Peace be unto you in the name of Mohammed, blessed be his name.
If you MUST kill Americans, please try to refrain from hacking their bodies to pieces as it makes them difficult to identify.
Statement from Mitt Romney
American Embassies are AMERICAN SOIL. If you attack another American Embassy, unlike in Cairo where you morons violated our territory and destroyed property and where the Marine sentries were ordered by the Muslim friendly Obama administration to STAND DOWN, our security forces will FIRE FOR EFFECT. If necessary, I will dispatch carrier based air cover and additional ground forces to protect our people and remove them from your clutches.
The Marine Hymn contains the line
to the shores of Tripoli. If you wish to continue your insane tribal and sectarian madness, we will be back just long enough to bring out every American citizen then leave you to your national insanity until youre all dead.
The Obama Administration considers it is to be acceptable to kill U.S. ambassadors and to take over U.S. embassies.
Can you imagine how bad it will be if Obama is reelected.
There has to be some way to go Reagan on 0bama.
Bammers is obviously a Muslim sympathizer, though stating that outright will get you the “extreme” label, this is just the reality of the society today.
I was told that if I voted for McCain we would have the entire Middle East against us....well I voted for McCain and darn if they weren’t right.
Obama is 100% familiar with the Muslim World and he knows who and what the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda is. Actually about the only thing Obama is totally competent in is the understanding of the Muslim World.
This begs the question, WHY DID HE HAVE QADDAFI OVERTHROWN? WHY DID HE GIVE SUPPORT TO THOSE THAT OVER THREW MUBARAK IN EGYPT. WHY HAS EVER GROUP THAT HE HAS BACKED IN THE MIDDLE EAST HATE THE UNITED STATES. WHOSE SIDE IS OBAMA ON???????????
That was cheezy but funny as shi-! Fu— the Mooslims and Fu— our government.
Depictions of this crazy “prophet” need to become so common and daily, that the outrage spreads itself thin and burns itself out. You react with more free speech when the islamists threaten and riot, mistaking themselves for the religious bosses of everyone.
Globalism does not work. We are not “the world” and the world is not the West. It is an elitist self serving, and murderous cultural and economic ideology.
If we did not have cowards and traitors leading the West, Muslims would know the risk of crossing lines with us. They would be careful around us rather than us being careful around them.
