(The Daily Dolt)   Donald Rumsfeld says embassy attacks are due to "perceived American weakness." Apparently, he's never heard of Google, which easily allows people to look up the number of embassy attacks under Bush/Rumsfeld   (thedailydolt.com) divider line 215

AnEvilGuest: quizzical: OF COURSE The man who order snipers to take out pirates holding an American citizen hostage, who sent a Seal team to get Bin Ladin, and who has collected the heads of a score of guys who held the job of #2 in command of al-Qaeda is acting in ways that create a perception of American weakness. Why didn't I see it before?

Shut up, Rummy. I'm going to consider your idea idea of "perceived American weakness" an "unknown unknown," because I just don't see any evidence for it.

Just find some empty chair and squint so hard you hallucinate.


That, sir, is the squint of freedom, the peek of liberty. The squinch of our patriot fore-fathers who marched into enemy lines and into eternity with their eyes screwed up tight by love of country. No, sir, do not denigrate or insult the squint of freedom. Rather, smile a painful smile, drive those cheeks high into your eye sockets and squinch your God-fearing eyes till Freedom Tears run down your face like a July Hershey bar on a toddler's sun-washed face.

neongoats: Chimperror2: neongoats: Ahem.. But voting with your wallet and taking your chicken buying away from chik fil a fundyterrorists is evil bad.


Stupid, inbred, fundyterrorist scum

I missed that news story. When did those "Eat more chiken" cows storm Islamic country embassies, kill ambassadors, call it "the peace dividend" and change the Arab Spring to an Arab Fall?

That post was supposed to be the end of a reply to another post, but my tablet farked me up.

What's the Rmoney solution here? Invade 4 more countries and show them ALL! Driving us further into debt and recession that people lime Rmoney will never notice the effects of? No thanks.

I'm half convinced the farking video was put out with full Rmoney camp knowledge anyway. Smirky McHatesAmerica.

I'm pretty sure the joint chiefs would just flat out say "fark you".


I'm pretty sure the video had absolutely nothing to do with an attack on the anniversary of 9/11. No one was chanting about Terry Jones. No one burned his likeness. They did display hatred for America and burned Obama effigies.

The reality is that Libya and Egypt have less control over the radical elements than before the "Arab Spring." That's the price of armed revolution as revolutionaries are by nature 'extremists.'

When Syria falls, it will be the same story. Some will be grateful for western support, others have extreme hatred and will then have political power and influence. Egypt, Libya and Syria were basically run as a secular state with a Muslim majority. They will now be Islamic republics and those that support a religious view that the U.S. and Israel are Satan incarnate have power and access to weapons, intelligence, etc. These attacks are pretty coordinated. In Libya the killers knew way too much about U.S. security plans and that's because the government of Libya now has extremists with access to that information. Same is true in Egypt and soon in Syria. The people winning the revolutions are not friendly to the U.S. and they are not secular.

The real story is why was the U.S. surprised by these attacks on a 9/11 anniversary and why didn't they have sufficient security to deal with it? There is no excuse for an ambassador to Libya to be traveling in that country without U.S. security forces sufficient to protect him. The ambassador to Mexico takes more precautions than that.

So under Bush it was because they hate our freedom, but now it's because we're perceived as weak? Gotcha.

Don Rumsfeld? Don Rumsfeld? Why does that name look familiar?

WASHINGTON, July 7 - A secret military operation in early 2005 to capture senior members of Al Qaeda in Pakistan's tribal areas was aborted at the last minute after top Bush administration officials decided it was too risky and could jeopardize relations with Pakistan, according to intelligence and military officials.

The target was a meeting of Qaeda leaders that intelligence officials thought included Ayman al-Zawahri, Osama bin Laden's top deputy and the man believed to run the terrorist group's operations.

But the mission was called off after Donald H. Rumsfeld, then the defense secretary, rejected an 11th-hour appeal by Porter J. Goss, then the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, officials said
. Members of a Navy Seals unit in parachute gear had already boarded C-130 cargo planes in Afghanistan when the mission was canceled, said a former senior intelligence official involved in the planning.

Mr. Rumsfeld decided that the operation, which had ballooned from a small number of military personnel and C.I.A. operatives to several hundred, was cumbersome and put too many American lives at risk, the current and former officials said. He was also concerned that it could cause a rift with Pakistan, an often reluctant ally that has barred the American military from operating in its tribal areas, the officials said.

The decision to halt the planned "snatch and grab" operation frustrated some top intelligence officials and members of the military's secret Special Operations units, who say the United States missed a significant opportunity to try to capture senior members of Al Qaeda.


Oh, yeah, that's right! Don Rumsfeld called off a raid to get not only A.Q. number 2, but many other top A.Q. leaders, because he's a giant pussy. And anyone thinks I should take the advice of a giant pussy who let A.Q. number 2 away because?

F U Rumsfeld. F U Bush for allowing him to pussy out. F U Cheney for allowing Bush to allow Rumsfeld to be a giant pussy. F U Republicans for allowing the whole lot of them in office.

Why would a war monger try to stop a war that he and his cronies are profiting from?

quatchi: Actually, there were twelve terrorist attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities abroad during George W. Bush's tenure - the most of any president in history - and eight of those occurred while Donald Rumsfeld was in office.

*golf clap*

I don't recall anyone in that mob of protesters carrying signs saying "We perceive you as weak".



Meh, all attacks are not created equal. You want to impress me, show a body count.

That's where the Reagan/Bush administration really shows who's weak: 94 dead in attacks on American embassies and consulates. Why, the rest of the world must have perceived Americas as being as weak as an elderly man with Alzheimer's.

Generic Republican: Once again, for all you right wing retards. Free speech means that you are free to say whatever you like, but you are not immune to the consequences. Hence, I can walk up to any elected official and tell him that I think he's a sekrit muslin and not have to worry about getting locked up by some goon squad.

No one is calling for the filmmakers to be jailed. they are calling them many other things, most assuredly, but they remain free to make another garbage film and release it onto the world. That is free speech. When someone tells you to go fark yourself because of what you say to them, they are not infringing on your rights, they are exercising their free speech.

The notion that anybody else in the world has to respect the constitution is laughable. Do you follow the Magna Carta? How about the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms? I didn't think so. Unfortunately, this is what being hated by the rest of the world brings the US. Perhaps the reason Muslims and the Middle East in general doesn't like America isn't the fact they hate your free speech, it's that the west has spent the better part of the last 30 years bombing them.


They hate us for our freedom to be tricked into thinking that they hate us for our freedom.

Rummy knows a lot about not protecting assets properly.

you protect the embassies with the force you have. not the force you might want or wish for at a later time.

I stand corrected. I was mixing his war record up with GW and Cheney and virtually every neocon.

He's still a pussy.

I will accept the Internet punishment of constant derision for the foreseeable future.

You guys sure did give that straw man a beating. Hell, you even lit it on fire, called in some crows, donned some overalls and did a little dance.
