Anyone traced Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod's email and phone activity over the last 24 hours?

I tend to agree that they are people with sense. The Obama Regime is screwing a lot of decent people in the Middle East, along with screwing us. I wish I read Arabic other than the word “the.”

A reporter in Libya spoke about this today. She said there were about 150 people. They were all being photographed & video taped so they could be identified later, so people were afraid to join the demonstration.

Don’t the SEIU or AFL-CIO piggies have some “brother hoods” in Cairo? They bought the pizzas for the piggies in Madison when the union scabs there took over the capitol.

We probably do have a few friends in Libya, even Benghazi. The problem is the same one that the Palestinians face. You show any hint of friendship toward Israel or the West, and your family is destroyed.

I’m not sure what’s actually going on here, but my take is that it is a staged event. Even some of the people standing there didn’t seem to like it much.

I’d like to know what some of the signs on the walls of the buildings were depicting. My guess is that they were probably anti-West. Perhaps advertisements, just giving it some thought.

I have known a few Libyans, and I cannot imagine that the ordinary people would condone the killers. Even though their country has been through terrible times, the average person is not bad.

The people joining this demonstration are literally putting their lives on the line. The terrorists could be hunting them down tomorrow. Honestly, would you be as brave as these people?

“The problem is the same one that the Palestinians face.”

Yes, I saw a thing on TV years ago (I think it was after 9/11/01, maybe not too long after) and they interviewed a rather irate Palestinian man whose brother had been a suicide bomber.

He maintained (plausibly) that his brother was, what shall I say, a little soft in the head, and had been victimized by those who sent him to his death.

He was very cranky and frustrated and I related to him.

But, what can I say, they don’t seem to be able to overcome and we did not help them.

Bush too, definitely Bush too.

Did we go into post-war Japan and say “oh, we know you are all yearning to be free, kumbaya, lah-dee-dah”?

No, we said, we won, you lost, this is how it’s gonna be.

That is what we needed to do after 9/11 and that is what we failed to do.

We are reaping the whirlwind now.

I certainly believe this demonstration was legit. Intelligent people only support Al Qaeda if there is something in it for them. Decent people will get bulldozed by fanatics, it doesn’t mean they like it. Remember that this group is small and such a demonstration today was beneficial to the government.

They had lots of demonstrators that were used for cover of the assassination squad. If they had not held the "demonstration", there would be no cover for the act of war.

All Libyans are responsible for the murders of four diplomatically protected Americans. Punish all of Libya and Egypt, severely.

It *is* strange that this demonstration should occur but I won't believe that your assessment applies to *all* moslems.Many moslems? Yup,you betcha! Most moslems? Very possible.All moslems? Nope...I can't believe that.

Anyone notice the assembly line nature of the posters? In a typical demonstration, poster art/lettering will differ in paint style and construction. This was orchestrated.

Still I thank them.

Yes, it’s screwed up.

I’m talking about Japan based on something I read somewhere, who knows maybe it’s not true.

Although the “we won, you lost” part is TRUE.

I read that MacArthur basically took a legal pad and wrote Japan a new constitution, incorporating parts of our constitution and, well, whatever else the circumstances seemed to require.

That is basically their constitution today.

Now, you know, I don’t know. The Japanese seem to me to be very like the Germans, by which I mean, they’ll fall in line, they’ll pull together, for good or ill. I say that as a very proud person of German descent.

I’m not sure the Arabs/Muslims are of that ilk.

Bush’s faith in Islam as “a religion of Peace” was clearly misplaced.

And Obama’s faith in his own, how can I put this? Let’s just say powers of persuasion are also very much misplaced.

The jihadis care little who is our President, nor, quite frankly should they, they are grinding their own ax.

WE NEED TO GRIND OURS.

Not just here in the US, but in all the West.

I will gladly die as a martyr, heck I’ll gladly die as a communist, lesbian, atheist, poll-dancing martyr, and also a fan of Good Morning America, before I submit to Islam.

They use the phrase “Orqod fi salaam”, translates the same. I believe the source is phrased out of Isaiah so it’s pretty common out of all three religions.
