this isn't the government,... wtf are you going to do when a bunch of random idiot morons do random idiot things?

No, the GOP would rather carpet bomb an entire country because some retards stormed an embassy.

Infernalist: stuff


Nail on the head.

Though, I can't say i pity him... just because he played the part didn't mean he was a mindless puppet with strings. His intellectual abilities aside, he had and has free will. I think he was as willing to let the puppeteers run the show as they were to do it. He had his moments, but too few and far between.

It runs too close to not attributing blame to him directly for all the shiat he could have stopped. He carries the bulk of that blame, just as the rest of the willfully ignorant in this nation carry the blame for their echo chamber of hate and fear. Even more so because he sought the leadership position.

He's a lot of things, but not a victim. And only victims deserve pity.

Infernalist: This was the perfect opportunity for Romney to put 'EVERYTHING' behind him, put out a well-written declaration of unified support of the Obama administration.

He could, with one simple gesture, show a mountain of dignity and Presidential personality by putting country before his political motivations.

"I stand with Americans, all civilized people around the world and I stand side-by-side with the President of the United States when I say that this deplorable act of violence shall 'not' stand and we shall find justice together."

But no. No, we can't have that, now can we?


So, you're saying Romney should knowingly give you a line of bullshiat to make you feel better about this predictable continuation of the Obama approved "Arab Spring"?

Arab Spring libtards, Arab Spring! Plant your Obama daffodils now so they'll be a bloomin' when them A-rabs start murder bombing our Krogers.

It makes a little more sense now:

[Updated at 12:11 p.m. ET] Tuesday's attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was planned in advance, and the attackers used the protest outside the consulate as a diversion, U.S. sources told CNN Wednesday.

The sources could not say whether the attackers instigated the protest or merely took advantage of it. The sources do not believe Ambassador Chris Stevens was specifically targeted.

Rapidly changing? Looks like their culture's still stuck somewhere around 800 AD.


In 800 AD Islam didn't exist.

In 1000 AD they were busy inventing modern mathematics and astronomy.

The New York Times had the story online when I read it a 7:00 am central, and you could watch the article grow every time you reloaded it, as they added information once it became available.

The truth is that what happened last night was chaotic with a lot of conflicting stories and contradictory statements from all sides. The New York Times still tries to fact check their print edition, and probably figured it was better to wait than print embarrassing bullshiat.

Also, subby knows that there isnt just one print edition, but that they update the paper through the night, right?

You know, if they'd gotten their religious fanatics under control back then, we'd all likely be Muslims today.

Romney and his campaign have a fantastic tendency to shove their feet ankle-deep into mouths whenever they utter even the slightest syllable on foreign policy.

He should have kept his fool mouth shut til, and played the 'Classy Presidential' card when it became clear this was some bad shiat going down.

Jesus Christ, I didn't even realize.

I didn't know him well (or at all personally) but he made my interwebs summer of '06 hell (which is what we call fun in Eve). Much respect.

Terrible to hear about anyone being killed, but feels... I'm not sure how to describe it. He had a real impact on me and my friends and thousands of others.

Yeah, small world I suppose.

palelizard: Geotpf: I absolutely agree, unless said terrorism is ordered by, or in any way supported by, a government. For example, the Tailban and al Queda were close to one in the same, so 9/11 was an act of war by the de facto government of Afghanistan and an invasion of such was absolutely justified, IMHO.

There's no indication that the Libyian or Egyptian governments supported these attacks, so that caveat doesn't apply in this case.

There is, however, a question of what the respective governments are planning to do about it. If they fail to respond with their own law enforcement, it will look like tacit approval--and a betrayal of the diplomatic agreements to keep embassies safe. The host countries should feel disgraced they allowed this to happen, and they should definitely be finding and punishing people. If they don't, and aren't ashamed...


I don't disagree with things like the Bin Laden raid, or drone attacks in Yemen or Afghanistan.

It seems like the Libyan and Egyptian governments are on our side here. I've seen no evidence to the contrary.

This is a crappy comparison. Carter did not CAUSE the embassy situation to happen. He pulled out a plan to rescue hostages that farked up big time. This isn't really Obama's unless he sends rescue helicopters in and they end up crashing on top of a orphanage.
