Hey, none of those protesters had more than 2 ounces of shampoo with them. Or nailfiles.
You can't explain that.

Gumaraid: HotWingConspiracy: Gumaraid: Welcome to Obama's brave new world where we all sing kumbaya while our enemies burn the house down around us.

Tomorrow you'll be calling him a monster again for having a kill list.

No. I've already said that. He is a murderer for authorizing the execution of Americans without trial by jury. Unlike you I don't let my politics interfere with my sense of right and wrong.


So he's a murderous kumbaya singing peacenik. Ok.

tereklusec: oeneus: There are many missions that have no Marine presence and Marines, when present, protect information not personnel. Embassy and consulate protection is the responsibility of the host government.

Marines, like all armed forces, protect whatever you tell them to. And they protect it well, with violence if necessary.


We do the "break stuff and kill people" better than any other branch of service.

SeismicJizzer: It is hard to predict what will set off Muslim nations, this time its about a movie that no one has ever heard of and these douchebags whipped themselves into a frenzy, created by asinine coonts for political gain.


You really believe everything the media tells you, don't you?

This happened on NINE farkING ELEVEN. It has nothing to do with a movie that came out over a year ago.

lordaction: Thank goodness Obama has apologized to the terrorists that did this and has ordered the DOJ to try to prosecute American's for exercising freedom of speech. Who would have thought a liberal would blame America first and take the side of our enemies.


Romney already beat you to the punch on that troll. It fell flat for him too.

HotWingConspiracy: BUT HOW COME OBAMA DIDN'T HAVE AN ARMORED DIVISION THERE TO KILL THE PROTESTORS?!


Are morons like you still calling them protestors? So far we know that they had heavy machine guns, rocket propelled grenades and also launched a coordinated mortar attack.

tereklusec: If they had raped a single white female your outrage would be changing teams, I think, and you would be calling them rapists instead of protestors.


It would depend on whether it was a Republican or Democrat who did the raping.

One thing for sure is the leadership in Egypt doesn't have the cojones to quell the Islamists, it is going to be fun to see that country slowly rot in the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood.

I have always thought the Middle East is a rotten part of the world that should be shunned from the International community, that includes Israel.

These backward, feckless people deserve to be left to rot...


You have a 'thing' for rotting.

Well, the latest trend is outsourcing. The government can save taxpayers' money by paying employees of Blackwater/Xe/What-ever-those-criminals-currently-call-themselves many times more what an active duty member of the military would earn. It's all part of the important cost-cutting drive to run government more like a business.
