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.

I know, because this list of embassy attacks below didn't happen:

2002
June 14, Karachi, Pakistan: bomb explodes outside American consulate in Karachi, Pakistan, killing 12. Linked to al-Qaeda.

2004
Dec. 6, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia: terrorists storm the U.S. consulate, killing 5 consulate employees. 4 terrorists were killed by Saudi security.

2006
Sept. 13, Damascus, Syria: an attack by four gunman on the American embassy is foiled.

2007
Jan. 12, Athens, Greece: the U.S. embassy is fired on by an anti-tank missile causing damage but no injuries.

2008
Sept. 16, Yemen: a car bomb and a rocket strike the U.S. embassy in Yemen as staff arrived to work, killing 16 people, including 4 civilians. At least 25 suspected al-Qaeda militants are arrested for the attack.


Well yeah, but at least Bush sent a SEAL team to get bin Laden. WTF has Obama done?!

doglover: 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.


Um... the active denial system isn't a firearm. It's that satellite-dish directional-sound beam thing. You point it in a direction, turn it on, and anyone along the beam hears a loud assed noise. That's it. No bullets. No missiles. No flying corgis. I recall they'd said they were going to use these nonlethal devices in embassies. I guess they didn't get around to it.

Not really an answer though. How should the US have handled the "Arab Spring"?

You didn't even read it did you? What an asshat. Let me sum it up for you. Obama is shiatting on our allies and extending an open bar to the folks behind all this shiat. It's not an opinion, it's pure simple facts. Opening dialog with duly elected democracies is a good thing, but you don't do it while crapping on your friends.

Invasion of US Embassies? How's about defending US citizens and soil? You know, like shooting at people climbing the walls? Sounds radical I know.


The CONSULATE in Benghazi where the killing happened was NOT AN EMBASSY. It had minimal security in the first place. Many nations have consulates that are extension offices of their embassies. Embassies go in capitals, and might have big walls and Marines. Consulates are in office buildings.

Also, foreigners shooting crowds can make things worse when (if at an embassy) you have hardened safe rooms and local national troops can shoot the crowd for you (as in Yemen).

Also Yemen is a beautiful country with an amazing cultural heritage, and Yemen/Ethiopia is one of the world's oldest centers of civilization. The capital, Sana'a, is one of the world's most beautiful cities.

alywa: Sgt Stubby: Why is everyone forced to say and write 'prophet mohammad' when discussing islam but not Lord Jesus when referencing Christianity? Oh, I forgot. Islam might get angry... and people could die.

You all (Christian, Jewish, Muslim) are farking idiots, blindly following the shiat your parents shoved down your throats. Grow the fark up already. This applies x2 to the Muslims, as they seem to be the ones blowing up more shiat this century. Leave the rest of us alone. We are so farking sick of you all.


Or else what?
You'll send them a strongly worded letter?
You'll send drones to blow them up?
What?

jakomo002: Of course, none of this Yemeni anger has anything to do with the fact that the U.S. has been involved in a low-level war there for years.

29 Dead in 8 Days as U.S. Puts Yemen Drone War in Overdrive

29 dead in a little over a week. Nearly 200 gone this year. The White House is stepping up its campaign of drone attacks in Yemen, with four strikes in eight days. And not even the slaying of 10 civilians over the weekend seems to have slowed the pace in the United States' secretive, undeclared war.

TOTALLY unrelated, amirite? I'm sure Yemenis celebrate when they see a foreign government's attack drones in their skies, and they're probably unaffected when those drones bomb the shiat out of their neighbours.

http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2012/06/yemen-war/all/

After years of sending drones and commandos into Pakistan, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta last week finally admitted the obvious: The US is "fighting a war" there. But American robots and special forces aren't just targeting militants in Pakistan. They're doing the same - with increasing frequency and increasing lethality - in Yemen. The latest drone attack happened early Wednesday in the Yemeni town of Azzan, killing nine people. It's the 23rd strike in Yemen so far this year, according to the Long War Journal. In Pakistan, there have been only 22.

They can't actually defend themsleves against drone attacks, so this is probably the only way they can voice displeasure, by trashing the embassy. Because actions have consequences.


Oh the poor islamic psychos, why can we just let them kill gays and beat their women in peace right?

Kind of like how Reagan was an addled, doddering old simpleton when it was politically advantageous to the Democrats, and some sort of scheming evil genius when it suited them. Even the well-know right-wing comedy show Saturday Night Live noted that interesting dichotomy

BTW, I could substitute "Dubya" for "Reagan" in that sentence and it would mostly fit, except for the "old" part.

The anti-Mohammed film is, as far as I can tell, a "film" in the same way that a middle-school girl using her Cricket phone held at arms length to record a diss video about how mean that stupid Ashleigh is (and the fact that she's not nearly as pretty as she thinks she is, and also she's like totally mistaken if she thinks Brian is interested in her, because he totally isn't and stuff, so step off biatch) and then uploads it to YouTube is. The closest this movie is ever going to get to a cinema is if someone watches it, on YouTube, on their phone while they sit in the theater waiting for the real movie (say, "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters") to start.

This stinks to high heaven.

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.

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.
