youmightberight: We cannot have our amabasadors killed and say "well thats not right" and do nothing. It's been a basic tenet of diplomacy that you never kill the messenger. These camel farkers have chosen to throw tradition and international law out the window. I'm up for turning them, their homes, wives, children, and favorite goat into smoking craters.
Put some reapers on station and track where the farkers go. Hellfire that mud hut and kill everyone inside.

Rainbows and sunshine only work AFTER you have TOTALY destroyed an enemies will to fight.


I'm pretty sure that's what we're doing. I hope they can capture and try these farkers but I won't lose any sleep if they go down to a drone or tomahawk.

No, really.

really? i have religious viewpoints. i have not stormed a foreign countries. i have not decapitated anyone. i have not blown up buildings. i have not blown up myself in the hopes that i could take as many non-believers out with me as possible.

Beauf: randomjsa: You expected something else when you portray nothing but weakness?

Thanks Obama.

That groveling apology is looking increasingly foolish.

You mean the apology where he said we were going to track the people who did this down and make them pay, which is actually credible given his penchant for whacking terrorists with Hellfires even in countries where they were completely safe under GW? That apology?


But it ruins the "incompetent/weak Obama" meme they've got going on.

Thing is, how are independents viewing this? I can't see them being quite as bloodthirsty as the neocons and war-mongering teabaggers. And weren't there a peacenik subset of teabaggers too (the younger more libertarian types)?

Freedom of speech isn't absolute, and there's a lot of precedent for violence following insults of the Prophet. If this is hate speech or falls under the clear and present danger exemption (both of which I think are plausible arguments) then there's no violation of civil rights because the right wasn't properly used in the first place.

Still, I'm not sure the government ought to hand these people over. Probably violates some kind of due process.

stpickrell: Thing is, how are independents viewing this?


I'm thinking Obiwanfartbama has been pretty weak on foreign policy, mostly letting the Bush II agenda play out. He's been the weakest president in my lifetime, governing to the right of Richard Nixon but without the efficacy. No space programs, no important acts of social legislation (outside of a health insurance scheme that will give trillions to the insurance companies and take years to phase in, or course), just lots of promises, promises.

It's been pretty bad. On the other hand, the countries that seem to have significant amounts of Christians (at least sizable pluralities) don't seem to be shiatholes on the level of places like Yemen or Libya... or at least the Christians don't seem to shred the places up as much over perceived affronts to their beliefs.

I think there's a very strong argument to be made that they are going through their reformation right now. These Salafists\Wahabbist dudes are very much like the early Protestants - going back to the texts, rejection of the traditions of Islam which they describe as "innovations", strict iconoclasm etc. If things are going to schedule they're due a couple of hundred years of filthy religious wars before they move on to the Enlightenment which probably brings them about in line with how long it took people to put Christianity in its proper place.

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.

I'm saying they are exactly the same.
Religion is legitimized group superstition and delusion.
Humans, being the most murderous and devious animals on the planet, are infinite in their ability to rationalize anything at all. Religion is a psychological tool that enables that rationalization process, as well as gives order to a chaotic, random universe.

Yep. That's their new thing. It's smart because Dawkins says it spreads like a virus.
