Nurglitch: At this point one feels that the 'protesters' are just looking for an excuse.


After being shiat on by white people for 100 years or so, they probably have a problem with white people.

12349876: styckx: 12349876: styckx: Is there a real source except U.S. media claiming it's this "film" as the reason for these protests? This seems more like an organized revolt against the U.S. then over some shiatty film. I mean fark there are probably 1000s of videos making fun of Islam.. Why does this one suddenly spark outrage?

Because an Egyptian talk show host discussed it on September 8.

And we all know what Glenn Beck did to a girl in 1990.. Why aren't we burning down Foxnews Embassies?

I was only answering the "why did it spark outrage" part. An obsure, barely seen Youtube video gets shown on Egyptian TV by a radical Islamist talk show host and that's why it's an "outrage" and other videos still in intertube obscurity are not.


The talk show and the rumors that surrounded this movie state that the United States authorized this movie and showed it to all Americans, nationwide, on American TV (implicitly understood to be state-television)

Of course nothing of the sort like that happened. it is absurd to us. But not to people living in third world countries with only secondhand or thirdhand internet access. Not to people living in an echo-chamber where the US Govt. is the big bad that is cause of their poverty.


The people that are protesting are obviously a minority of the population. nothing like the scale you have seen in the Egyptian Arab spring protests. These are the people that agree with the lies the fundamentalists put out and they're being played by them. The fury they're showing is not from this one incident. It is from a perceived lifetime of slights, insults, and damage from the US.

xalres: I'm usually the most libby lib that ever libbed but I'm starting to wonder why we bother to take these people seriously. If they can't stand having a movie even exist that makes fun of them without storming embassies and killing people well...fark em. Respect is earned.


I'm just waiting for Mel Gibson to come out with The Passion of the Prophet for Little Girls.

Ya know, this anti-muslim video would have quickly faded into obscurity if it weren't for all the rage and violence against it. I wonder if the extremists realize how much free publicity they're giving the makers of the film?

halfof33: Lets see what world hide and seek champion and free speech advocate Julian Assange has to say:

"By the US accepting the UK siege on the Ecuadorian embassy in London it gave tacit approval for attacks on embassies around the world."

The take away from this is that Julian once again exposes himself as one of the worst people in the world.


Correct. We should only support sieges on embassies when they are done by other white people.

I really wish the way I saw the world was so simple that most any problem like this could be fixed with more bombs. Or invading another country. Oh wait, no I don't, because realizing that there are incredibly complicated nuances that play into any geopolitical situation makes why things like this happen a more clear. Also, if your Weeners to violence is to respond with more violence then you don't seem that unlike these "animals" to me anyway.

/But the Iranians stormed our embassy in 1979 because they hated our freedoms, right? 
//Nothing happened before that, they just really hated our freedoms

The true extremists (charlatan leaders) probably want every single muslim person on the planet to see it. It makes great radicalization fodder. It quickly sieves away the idiot muslims from the rational calm ones and throws them into the streets.

With your bad back, you shouldn't be throwing anyone.

You're an idiot. A few thousand people rioting means we should bomb one quarter of the seven billion people on the planet.

Only way to be sure.

I've been wondering - how do you say "Teabagger" in Arabic?
 
2012-09-14 01:27:23 PM

soporific: Kuroshin: It's obvious at this point that none of this has anything to do with Islamic outrage over a video. These are all happening in a coordinated fashion, hitting the same targets. The fact that this all started around September 11 is just blatant.

There is no pretending this to be random acts of violence. A singular entity is behind this. Either a coordinated terrorist organization, or a government wanting to spark more direct conflict across Africa and the ME is orchestrating these "protests."

Agreed. I think they might also be doing it to make Obama look bad because he's made a point to actually target the terrorists. They want Republicans back in place who will then ignore Al Qaeda and instead invade somewhere else. They want people in power who actually resemble anti-American propaganda. They want another 8 years of George W. Bush. At least, Bin Ladin did.

Or it could be a way to get people riled up and willing to listen to the more radical elements. They might be afraid that more and more people are rejecting the radical way, and this is a way to try to bring them back by whipping up an imagined or overblown slight. (It worked for the Tea Party in 2009, with the health care town halls) So this could also be a way of getting people on board. It also proves that what Obama is doing over there is working.

And it could be both, who knows. But the fact that it started on September 11th is no coincidence. This is a planned series of events, and it shows just how desperate they are, whoever is behind it.


I think a lot that depends on what you think Obama is trying to do.

Lulz, a couple cops outside the Embassy in Knightsbridge = attacking the US Embassy with RPG's and killing four people.

The obscure California-made film triggered an attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya's city of Benghazi
that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans on Tuesday, the anniversary of the Sept 11,
2001 al Qaeda attacks on the United States.

In Tunis, at least five people were wounded by police gunfire near the U.S. embassy, and a Reuters reporter
said a big fire had erupted within the embassy compound. Protesters had earlier leapt over the compound wall.

Witnesses said Sudanese police fired tear gas at thousands of protesters to stop them approaching the U.S.
embassy outside Khartoum, but some jumped over the wall. A Reuters reporter heard gunfire from the scene.

Walker: American mentality: free speech

Middle East mentality: say something I disagree with and I will kill anyone from your country or even allies of your country and then burn down my own city. That will learn you.

Close our embassies and don't give one more penny to these countries that hate us and want to kill us. We gave billions to Pakistan while they hid Bin laden for a decade. And if you think Pakistan didn't know he was there I have a bridge to sell you.


I'm okay with this. These bastards really hate us that much, pull EVERYTHING American out of those countries and let them stand on their own two atrophied legs. They'll be crawling back before Obama's second term is over, I guarantee it.

It's time, once again, to trot out my favorite Tom Lehrer quote:

But that couldn't happen again.
We taught them a lesson in 1918
And they've hardly bothered us since then

This is about anti-western bigotry. They don't give a shiat about who released it. All they care about is that someone from the west released it.

First of all, if you think only gay men get teabagged you're definitely doing it wrong.

Second, who knew this guy was gay?

Whether Iran was actually involved in instigating protests and attacks or not, the whole situation does benefit them. A few days ago Iran was more isolated from its neighbors with respect to nuclear weapons and a possible war with Israel. Now the Muslim populations of many nations are practically unified in fury against the West. They're not unified specifically in support of Iran, but if Israel attacked Iran right now, it seems clear to me that the hordes or rioters would go even more ape-shiat in their anti-West and anti-Israel fury.

Hey! Why don't we just come home and offer money to whomever sails a boat of oil to our ports? What do we care if some finger wipe moslem or thumb wipe moslem is on top over there? They can pretty much entertain themselves I do believe.

TrixieDelite: P.S. And don't any of you have JOBS? Sheeesh.


And therein actually is most of the reason for these type of protests, at least the root cause. There is massive unemployment in Iran, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and several other (heck, most other?) middle-eastern countries right now. This allows for extremism to easily take root in disaffected youth and you are seeing the outcome of it.... 'It's the west causing our troubles! Burn them!' and that kind of thing.

Instead of propping up governments in the region, we should be propping up the people. Get everyone working and happy and they won't have time or care to protest. You could hear this kind of attitude from the working classes in Egypt during the uprising, basically everyone whom already had a job going 'I just want to get back to work'.

Subby thinks that the other protesters are doing it right?

Do German embassies really have any less to do with this video than American ones, do?

Or is he suggesting that we should throw out the First Amendment and be more like Germany and Afghanistan?

I don't think for a moment that Iran is behind this because I don't think they have the capability to pull it off. You're right, though - it definitely works to their advantage.

In an odd way, it probably works to everyone's advantage (except for the dead people of course). An Israeli strike on Iran would be an international disaster of unthinkable proportion, and the current situation makes that virtually impossible for the reasons you've cited. It sucks to watch this sort of senseless violence breaking out in so much of the world, and the deaths of those who were killed in the consulate attack are terrible and tragic, but in the long run it may turn out that this was paradoxically a good thing.

Need_MindBleach: So let's see:

1. Some members of the Coptic diaspora and right-wing Christians in the US film a movie in California called "Desert Warrior" with a budget of what looks like about $50.

2. They dub over some of the lines to add references to Muhammad and the Quran, and release a 13-minute trailer on the internet.

3. Muslims all over the world riot and attack embassies, killing multiple people, burning private businesses, and attacking embassies of random Western countries.
