Obama's apologist stance of America has allowed another tragedy of this nature to occur. I say we take a 2 step approach here, 1. Never apologize for being free and 2.Elect real leadership to the White House. Muhammed was a liar and a fraud. Thank you

Hi America, from a foreigner

Please secure your people in all embassies, consulates and missions around the world. There is obviously a concerted effort to attack you at the moment.

Please rest assured that, as long as your reaction to these events is rational, the rest of the world is with you.

Please don't invade anyone.

Thx, ROW.

nmemkha: LL316: nmemkha: While the "outrage" is most likely an excuse to vent anger at the US, they producers of the film were callously negligent. Free Speech is a right, but with every right comes a responsibility. They knew there would be violence at the release of the film and yet they released it anyway. Unfortunately, its not their loved ones who are dying, but innocent people caught up in an unnecessary firestorm.

Totally agree with this, but don't go putting the fault there. The fault lies with the animals who react this way over a movie, not the movie maker himself. It's the rapist, not the low cut dress that commits the bad act.

The film was purposely made to antagonize. Demonstrating how I raped your lover in front of you is bound to elicit a negative reaction right? Its not my fault you got angry and assaulted me, right?


The filmmaker was a dumbass for trying to stir up trouble, and the people responding like rabid dogs need to grow the hell up. They all fail as human beings.

No it's not, dumbass. Yemen hasn't had a spring - the whole country is bonkers. Can't imagine the US left it unguarded.

I'm so ticked off about the paper cut I got that I wanna storm the Canadian Embassy because the tree
they made the paper from probably came from Canada.. (That was sarcasm people, I ♥ Canada)

That is the same kind of asinine logic were seeing here..I doubt the people killed in Libya had even heard of
this stupid movie..

BullBearMS: Hmmm... There was an interesting theory being discussed on Slashdot the other day.

whenever the UN's food price index, which measures the monthly change in the price of a basket of food commodities, climbs above 210, the conditions ripen for social unrest around the world.

(Said the researchers behind the study) "on December 13, 2010, we submitted a government report analyzing the repercussions of the global financial crises, and directly identifying the risk of social unrest and political instability due to food prices." Four days later, Mohamed Bouazizi set himself on fire as an act of protest in Tunisia.

Today, the food price index is hovering around 213, where it has stayed for months-just beyond the tip of the identified threshold.


And then the discussion devolved into a flamewar about the privacy concerns surrounding how the study was conducted.

Joe Six-Keg: That takes time. Even getting a couple of platoons to a hotspot can take hours, especially when you have hostiles in area. The "good" thing is there's a ton of hurt in the area already, and backup is likely inbound. Not sure where everything is in the Gulf at this time, but I can tell you: there are probably a lot of very motivated Marines en route, with a few drones to help with recon. Hopefully common sense and/or self-preservation breaks out there soon.


Two US navy ships with tomahawks aboard are headed towards Libya, surveillance drones are already there, and more marines are being sent for the embassy.
As far as Yemen goes, we've been droning that place up worse than Pakistan and Somalia.
I bet Assad and the Bahrainis are glad to have the cameras off of them for a news cycle.

First line of TFA:

Protesters angry over an obscure film critical of Islam's Prophet Muhammad stormed the U.S. Embassy in Sanaa, Yemen, on Thursday, as unrest that led to the deaths of a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans in Libya spread to other countries in the region.

Bullshiat. Bullshiat. Bullshiat.

The producer of this film turns out to not exist. The screening that so upset the Muslim world never happened. News organizations have yet to find any Muslim on the street who has seen it, most of those interviewed hadn't even heard of it.

This stinks to high heaven.

We are being used, yet again.

poe_zlaw: I wonder how many low-budget lame ass movies of been made about America and Christianity in the middle east How many embassies got stormed by peaceloving Americans in the United States?


I'm gonna assume none, since, you know, there's no proof that they exist.

This, however, was a deliberate attempt to show it to the Muslim world in order to piss them right the fark off.

/wouldn't at all be surprised if this traced back to Team Romney

Cpl.D: I thought they equipped all US embassies with that active denial system. It really would've been helpful, here.


They bought the units and installed them in some places.
Then some bigwig had them recalled before testing because they were too controversial.

/More controversial than having our embassy ransacked, it seems.

If you can charge a fleeing criminal with murder when police shoot some bystanders, you can charge the religious lunatic who made the movie as well.

A "Gulf of Tonkin" is being engineered by those who want us to get mired in yet another war over there. Anywhere. Because war means money for some people. And they're not waiting for a change of administration, especially since this administration is probably going to be re-elected. And if Obama doesn't get re-elected, they can blame him for starting the war.

This has nothing to do with the stupid film. Most if not all of the morans attacking the embassy haven't even heard of it, let alone seen it. And even if they had, how is it America's fault? Or the people inside the embassy? The American government didn't hire them to make it, they don't approve of it, but somehow they seem to be using this as an excuse for killing people. So i guess to a radical Islamic, burning people alive and shooting them is much less horrid than a stupid short about Mohammad. I just don't understand the logic.
 
2012-09-13 06:07:57 AM  
Quit freaking out. We got attacked in Libya by an Al Qaeda cell. The stuff in Egypt and Yemen so far just look like normal, every day, pissed-off Muslim demonstrations, orchestrated by Islamists, but not particularly dangerous. Neither of these things are new, nor do they call for "kicking ass" or any other response other than beefing up security against actual terrorists while talking in a soothing voice to the nice rioting mob, There, there, Muhammed isn't being dissed by the US government, there, there.
