Our war is NOT with Islam. It is with those who use Islam, economic suppression and religious zealotry as cover for their actions, and a rich source of recruitment.

AND with those in our own country who exploit every damn resource in sight, both in our country and in theirs, run off with huge profits, and also fan the flames of ignorance and hatred on both sides with their greed. Damned if they don't make use of the prevailing religion here to hide behind as well!

When we had someone from the US try to apologize for our idiot president and his idiot war a few years back, they got death threats from their fellow Americans that were credible enough to warrant police escorts.

Of course they followed it up with a quintuple-platinum album that should have been subtitled "Suck a Dick, Rednecks".

I salute the brave people of Bengazi. They are perfectly justified in opposing having their religion slandered (and we can debate if it was), but 99.9% of them understand that it wasn't the US that was at fault, and that violence isn't the answer to it.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: American soil has been invaded. American citizens have been murdered. Why isn't the very first statement from Obama that any further intrusion of american soil will be met with a vigorous defense and you will be fired upon? If he had said that, then maybe the 2nd incident doesn't happen at all. Ya think?

Instead, he apologized. And now an American Ambassador and 3 others are dead. Why? Why are we not allowed to defend our own turf?

Why do Democrats always retreat first when their nation is threatened and seek blame inwardly afterwards before they smell the coffee? You people are so farked in the head. This happened on Obamas watch. You can't blame Bush, you can't blame Rush, or Hannity or Ann Coulter. This wasn't Clint Eastwood talking to an empty chair or Romney's Bain Group profits. Where the fark are your balls? Where the fark is your pride? Why the fark are you even HERE?



Some nut-jobs go off the rails and you want us to bomb entire countries?!?! Where the holy hell is your sense of scale? What you advocate is nothing short of genocide because the path you would have us take would be winner take all. There could be no peace, no aftermath without a complete and total annihilation of the other side. I don't blame my country or democracy, I blame the idiots who live here who can't get this crap through their thick-ass skulls.

You want a war? Well so do a lot of them. Why don't we just load all you dumbasses up and drop you off in the middle of the desert with some knives and let you have it out and leave the rest of us out of this nonsense. I will not stand by quietly and let another country be destroyed for generations because of irrational fear in the face of real hardship while our name is dragged through the mud yet again.

What you had was a protest of some crap instigated by Americans, which was used by a small group of terrorists to make violence. I harbor no ill will toward the majority of Libyans and plenty of ill will toward the small number of people who were violent, just as I harbor ill will against the small number of people in my own country who stoke the flames of hatred.

I fully expect the US will provide intelligence of the whereabouts of the terrorists to the Libyans, who will hopefully kill those sons of biatches. Likewise, I'd like to see certain people in this country jailed for their roles in stirring up hatred overseas.

bdub77: Serious Post on Serious Thread: bdub77: what exactly is your proof that atheism is any better than organized religion?

Because atheism is a persistant constant and religion is an arbitrary variable. If all of human knowledge was lost, erased, reset, everything an atheist 'believes' in would be recreated, math, science, technology, logic, humanism, all would re-emerge. Religion would only manifest in some random pointless haphazard cobbled together amalgam of fear and ignorance.

Then by your definition art, music, and writing are also arbitrary variables, since they rely on the creative and not the logical centers of the brain and would manifest themselves in a random fashion. It's ironic that you bring up logic since your 'proof' is centered on a complete absence of it. Fear and ignorance will always have a place in humanity because of our basic wiring, and it is that same fear and self-professed ignorance that pushes us to discoveries in technology and science and math.

And religion is just as constant, if not more constant, than atheism. To me, atheism is in some ways as bad as religion, since it is frankly a smug way to look at life as devoid of meaning without really having all the answers with which to purport such a belief. Do you believe without a doubt that we are soulless and that when we die our brains simply stop functioning and we cease to exist because God doesn't exist? If your answer is yes, then you are just as religious as anyone else, because guess what - you seriously don't f*cking know for certain, so that makes your assertion a belief. Just as people cannot prove there is a God, you cannot prove there isn't one. But I'm sure your corpse will be a magnificently smug specimen.


Jebus, I'm way too exhausted to argue this right now, but in a nutshell:
1) You start out defending "organized religion" but barely eek out a case for a vague 'spirituality'.

2) If a deity is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, sentient, interventionist, and really gives a crap about us oh so special humans, and your "organized religion" purports to have a line on his/her/its dictates and directives, one would come to expect a more universal truth than the hodgepodge of religions we have had over time.

3) Unlike gravity, the speed of light, pi, algebra, etc etc, the constance of a divine being whom talked to people through burning bushes while planting dinosaur bones to test our faith before sending his god sperm to an iron age virgin to birth his son who made water into wine before becoming a zombie and ascending bodily into heaven whilst other separate but equal gods were creating thunder, or demanding blood sacrifice, or favoring tranquility or WHATEVER FARKING ARBITRARY MADE UP CONVENIENT BULLSHIAT THAT IS FASHIONABLE IN A PARTICULAR TIME AND PLACE. That is co-opted to cajole people into submission, or worse become pawns of violence and greed because some "organized religion" really really really KNOWS for reals what aforementioned one tru yet different and multiple deity/deities want.

4) Sounds like you are mainly afraid of being alone and/or dying. Tough shiat. Read some Camus or Kierkegaard or Dostoevsky and deal with it. Or at least son't make the rest of our lives hell with your "organized religion" because mortality gives you a sad. MMMmmmm Kay?

The attacks on the Consulate in Libya had nothing to do with the farking movie.

They were carried out by an affiliate of al qaeda doing business in Libya, in retaliation for the death of a guy known by his alias as "al-Libi" (The Libyan). He was blown sky high by some hellfires fired by a US operated drone in Pakistan back in June.

Al Zawahari (the leader of al qaeda, now OBL is dead) announced in a 45 minute video, released prior to the attacks that al qaeda was going to use the anniversary of 9/11 to try and extract some vengeance for al-Libi's death.

This wasn't some random event, it was planned and orchestrated. In fact, many in the crowd who were outside the consulate protesting actually fought back and attempted to help rescue the stranded American's inside. And reportedly at least 10 libyan security personnel were killed in likewise trying to repel the attack.

And for those thinking this was "staged", there was an even larger set of rallies, in numerous locations, that went on today in Tripoli. There are photos from those rallies online as well, but a bit more difficult to find than those from Benghazi.

THIS, children.This. While there is certainly a faction that treats September 11th as "F with Americans Day" (and they get all the on-camera time because their actions are so "visual") there are plenty of others who do appreciate little gestures like the support from the US that helped them get rid of a dictator.

Another thing to keep in mind is that some of these citizens cannot wrap their minds around the combination of "freedom of religion" and "freedom of speech" concepts as enshrined in the US constitution. By condemning the violence yet permitting the protests, we provide them with a real-life example of how it works -- and what it means to stick to those principles even when you're tempted to go all Hellfire-missle-y on the dissenters.

MindStalker: Was someone handing out the Pehavior sign or were they just handing it around. Its strange how it kept showing up.

Clearly handing it around.
I would guess that not everyone in the crowd can write English, but that many who don't want to communicate the same thing.

shotglasss: No American had anything to do with the embassy attacks, it was all done by muslims.


Err, you do realize that "Muslim" and "American" are not antonyms, right? There are American Muslims.

shotglasss: bdub77: What you had was a protest of some crap instigated by Americans,

Wow, you are so far off base you'll never find your way back.

No American had anything to do with the embassy attacks, it was all done by muslims. If you want to give them cover by blaming someone else, blame Allah or Mohammed or whoever it was that tells them that this is acceptable behavior.


And you are an idiot if you think that posting blasphemous material on purpose to piss off another culture in an attempt to make them hostile is acceptable behavior. Maybe you should simply look up the definition of instigate and STFU.

Violence is certainly unacceptable, but protest is acceptable. Religion in and of itself is not a bad thing, like anything it can be taken too far.

It's a small crowd. Then again, a lot of people probably think the same but are intimidated. Good for these brave folks. Libya hasn't been a safe place for the last couple of years.

Well, the 2 destroyers that just parked themselves off the shores of Libya may have something to do with that. Sad, though, that this needs to be done to remind people that all people of a certain color are not the same

SBinRR: I don't give a damn how many words are misspelled or incorrectly used. I'm glad to see these pictures.


It's amazing how much love it takes to make up for a single individual's hatred sometimes.

It's also amazing to see it succeed.

Look at that smile. Hey come on, man- he just NAILED IT!

One of the worst days I've ever seen for the Republican party and their candidate in an election year. So much shame.

This was a good find. Thank you subby.

KidneyStone: Wait a minute. What, were there like 12 people there? Looked like the one sign was passed around.



Clearly that one sign was being shared amongst multiple people, but that speaks more to the true sentiment I feel, that multiple people wanted to be photographed sharing that message.

Jerseysteve22: The Mossad is causing these riots. They know this would weaken Obama and give Romney a shot at winning. If Romney wins, he'll attack Iran and support Israel in doing so.
