Submitted this with a worse headline.

No laughing matter. If it weren't obvious this was a planned assault, it is now. This is going to be very bad for some people.

This is why we can't have nice things.

Romney's statement condemning Obama's response to this attack due any minute now.

He retroactively made it yesterday, smirk and all.

It's time to put on your Big Girl Panties and stop acting like a bunch of children.

I thought they equipped all US embassies with that active denial system. It really would've been helpful, here.
 
2012-09-13 05:28:27 AM  
Those trendy Yemenis.
 
2012-09-13 05:28:54 AM  
That's not very nice. In fact I'd go as far as to say they're being downright rude.

Subby here. I thought about including a joke, but knowing the Embassy staff over there is fighting for their lives, just didn't think it was appropriate.

Sweet baby Jesus. The reverb from the Arab Spring. I so want Obama to handle this well; otherwise this is ammo for the rtards & a recipe for disaster

Not SATAN!!!, that's for sure.

On a serious note, it makes a bit of sense, especially with the anniversary of 9/11 and the recent FRMing of their head guy in Yemen. It's a bit fast for al Qaeda, but then, I wouldn't put it past them taking the opportunity.

RU4C: Subby here. I thought about including a joke, but knowing the Embassy staff over there is fighting for their lives, just didn't think it was appropriate.

Bigotry against the west runs deep.

Hell, bigotry runs deep everywhere.

Even in the US we have problems with it.

Problem is, no matter how the President handles it, it's ammo for the Tea Party/Republicans/Neocons. Pathetic that such things are politicized so freaking badly, and that there are some people who are cheering for the deaths of Americans just to make "the other side" look bad.

In other news, the maker of the film that started it all has gone into hiding, his spokesman was chosen because he leads anti-Islamic protests at mosques and schools, and the cast claims that much of the dialogue was dubbed in without their knowledge or consent.

So, I haven't FTFA yet but is this more Libya or more Cairo?

quantum_jellyroll: Maybe it's time for a round of "Cowboys & Muslims".


Or maybe, "Regan and Russians". Just substitute 'Muslims' for 'Russians'. I really, really hope Obama steps up and kicks some ass.

I think it would be more ironic if we were all made of iron.

/yes, yes I do.

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.
 
2012-09-13 05:40:52 AM  
Hey, someone get on the horn to Obama and let him know we may want to beef up security around our middle eastern embassies ASAP.
 
2012-09-13 05:41:28 AM  
Who benefits the most from an America that is outraged at Islamists?

My Christmas lights are tangled.

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?

We should hand that film maker and Terry Jones over to some Muslim clerics.

Cpl.D: I thought they equipped all US embassies with that active denial system




You know what looks worse in the media than your embassy gettin' a little B&E? Unleashing automatic weapons on unarmed civilians. Hell, we're still learning about a handful of musket balls launched more than 200 years ago at a couple early Bostonians who you probably would have shot too.

As bad as riots get, active denial systems aren't for mere flag burning and trespass. That's why they keep the weapons in the secure areas, which weren't raided.
 
2012-09-13 05:45:25 AM  

common sense is an oxymoron: In other news, the maker of the film that started it all has gone into hiding, his spokesman was chosen because he leads anti-Islamic protests at mosques and schools, and the cast claims that much of the dialogue was dubbed in without their knowledge or consent.

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.

Oops!

But then again, it's an inconveniently-timed terrible bag of shiat farking situation up the pookie-gorbling schnizz.

And it's giving me Tourette's.

Why does the Islamic world seem to susceptible to trolling? Can we turn that to our advantage?
 
2012-09-13 05:46:03 AM  
And Egypt's having a running ongoing eight hour riot in the embassy outside of Cairo. A couple hundred protesters with molotovs and rocks versus tear gas and vehicles and they seem evenly matched.
Different crowd too.
The one that stormed the embassy in Cairo was apparently conservative/Islamic.
This crowd is young/Ultra/nihilistic street youth focusing on the police instead of the embassy.

But I don't have any Big Girl Panties. Do I have to get them off an actual Big Girl, or can I buy them in a shop?

Anyway, how does wearing panties and doing adult things on webcam defend against the legions of Al Qaida? All it does is get a bunch of filthy, man-lusting pervert stuck in chat rooms for hours...

...oh, you are so clever. Someone call Ghastly!

/putting on panties now -- for Freedom!

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?

I'm not sure they have any clue who the actual guy is behind the film. This smacks of some undercover shiat. And honestly... I'm not entirely Israel wouldn't do something like this. They certainly stand to gain from us goin all pimp-hand in the ME.
