War Through Weakness ^ | 9/18/2012 | Cal Thomas

"How could this happen?" asked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in response to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others.

The rioting by Muslims supposedly "inflamed" by a cheaply produced YouTube film about the Prophet Muhammad was cited as the reason, but we have learned the attacks may have been planned in advance, some to coincide with the anniversary of Sept. 11. What doesn't Secretary Clinton get? The actions and statements of Islamic extremists have been visible for some time.

In his latest obsequious gesture to the Islamic world, President Obama wants to offer $1 billion in "debt relief" to the Muslim Brotherhood leadership in Egypt. The president apparently hopes Egypt's leadership can be bought off and will then start behaving like us. The president appears to ignore Egypt's crackdown on political opposition, its sending tanks into the Sinai, in violation of its 33-year peace treaty with Israel, and the persecution of Coptic Christians who are fleeing the country in droves. This is what America got in Iran, Egypt and now Libya when we helped topple dictators who were then replaced by radicals.

That these and many other provocations against America, Israel and the rest of the West bring no credible response from the United States encourages and enables extremists to ramp up their violent behavior. "Paper tiger" is the term Mao Zedong used to describe "American imperialism" in 1956. "Spineless amoeba" might characterize this administration's response to outrages performed in the name of Islam.

Stupid muslim terrorists!

Don't they realize that Barack and Hillary are democrats?
Don't they realize that being democrats makes Barack and Hillary their friends, and on their side ?

It's not as if they were evil republicans or conservatives.
Barack and Hillary serve only for the good of all mankind, especially for the good of the sensitive and down trodden, like muslims.
These are people that evil America, the Great Satan, has used and abused before the Rise Of Barack - a man who understands and has great empathy for muslims, although he is not a muslim himself (wink, wink).

And now these foolish muslim terrorists have embarrassed Barack and Hillary by embarrassing them just before the election.

Surely they did not understand what they were doing.

Iron Munro~ “ Surely they did not understand what they were doing.”

The Muslims may , or may have not known what they were doing.
The media definately did know what it was doing , as did our ambassador to the UN who kept repeating the lie even after 5 days after the fact.
Such gross incompetance of so many Government officials is unexcusable, especially the loss of human life.

But while the media was beating the drum about the “Innocence of Islam” , the credit rating of the United States was AGAIN DOWNGRADED (!)
The fact that the media was covering a lie with a government supplied false story ,at the expense of a couple of embassies and an ambassador, the financial status was ignored.

With an election comming up where the economy and jobs are supposed to be central issues , the economy ,debt ratio, and credit downgrade were ignored .
Instead, all the network media knowingly gave us government spin on all the networks.
We knew better from information avaiable on the internet ,”Jabber” , “Twitter” , and on-site , first-hand current information from observers.

To this administration , the embassy , six dead Americans, and a murdered ambassador are little more than “Collateral Damage” with about 50 days remaining until the election.
This administration has no record of success in anything where it has been involved . It has no record to run a re-election .
The media did its job .. it got us off topic ; the only issue that affects all Americans and would result in true change ( without the hopey-thingey) .

Anytime I get all emotionally charged, I realize that is my Demorat side, the left side of my brain.
Anytime I take the time to think things out, and I use my right-side brain , and not my emotions , I realize that is my Replicrat side .
Anytime I use both sides of my brain together, and still get pi**ed , I realize that is my Conservative side .

Madame Hillary Clinton has been the active Secretary of State for the USA for almost 4 years.

She doesn’t yet get the mantra of the Islam world:

“Either you are a Muslim or you are an enemy of a Muslim.”

They use ‘religion’ to hide behind. Their ‘religion’ is a Trojan Horse.

After the number of years she has been traveling all over the world, I would like to think that she would have caught on by now. I would think that SOMEONE-SOMEWHERE would have clued her in.

I am a simple bookkeeper who is retired & living in rural Nevada.

I understand that about Muslims.

Maybe I should be Sec of State-—but I don’t want the job.

Hillary has been indoctrinated by Huma Abedeen to see the world with Muslim eyes.
