BMulligan: 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.


Eh. Don't forget why Israel's talking about the war--they don't want a nuclear Iran. While I'm not so certain a nuclear Iran is the hideous boogieman many nations have claimed it would be, there's a lot of room for that to have a negative impact on the world. This doesn't slow Iran's move towards nuclear armament, and that's going to be the instigator for future violence--and I do believe Israel believes it can't survive Iran with the Bomb, which means they'll risk all-war with everyone because they might have a chance then, and won't if Iran succeeds.

This might actually be worse because if Israel and Iran go to war, more people will get involved.

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."

This is the GOP's October Surprise.

TrixieDelite: FTFA:
Two Islamist preachers in Egypt told worshippers that those who made the movie deserved to die under sharia (Islamic law)

Okay, worshippers of Islam, here's the deal: AMERICANS DO NOT OPERATE UNDER ISLAMIC LAW. We operate under another set of laws, commonly framed within a little document we call The Constitution. We don't operate under your laws in our country. And you may note that when your people come to OUR country, we acknowledge your right to dress according to your traditions, eat according to your traditions, and worship according to your traditions--even though you're in a country that doesn't share those traditions.

While I do not agree with the making of the movie, I support the rights of those who made it. It was made in America, and the only reason you folks know anything about it is because of the Internet, which was also invented in America. And you're watching it on computers, which are an American invention as well.

So take your sorry-ass protests and shove them up your hairy asses. We'll gladly take our Embassies, our aid, human rights groups and political persuasions out of your backwater countries.

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


I like you.

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.




Its called "blowback".

Oh, wait, you argument is that Its ok if we do something to someone else, but its not ok if someone else does it to us.

Were the Prophet Muhammad around today, I think he'd be terribly disappointed in his followers. Even more so than Jesus would be were he around today. I imagine this scenario where Jesus and Muhammad would be sitting around at a bar lamenting about how idiotic their respective followers are. Though I think Muhammad would have slightly more to biatch about in that particular situation.

Uh, he didn't wish death on anyone. If you can't tell the difference between those two statements you quoted then maybe you should just sit your bad self down before you make yourself look stupid again.

Unless he is leaving this world in a farking spaceship they are both advocating another's death.


If I say "The world will be a better place when Fred Phelps leaves it" it doesn't mean I wish for Fred Phelps to die, just that when he's gone the world will be a better place.

If I say "Can't bomb these westborough farkers fast enough" it means I wish for them to be killed by a bomb.

Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: Artemus_Hackwell: That dirty little turd from CA that created it; who did so knowing the possible result...has he come forth with a motive? Financial sources?

The story at the moment is that the creator hates both Islam and the United States, and is part of a domestic hate group that wants to overthrow America and rebuild in its place a Christian theocracy to stand against the oncoming war against Islam. So he makes a video to inflame the Middle East into violence, who will them turn it against American interests abroad, weakening the American government for the eventual coup by he and his Christian soldiers. As for the financing, I haven't heard much about it.

Note that it's regional, not national in scope. Islam is a religion, not a government or political entity.

I am sure this was mentioned elsewhere but the attack on the German embassy was because of supposed anti-Islam graffiti on mosques in Germany, which I could totally believe because graffiti seems to be more popular here than in America. It was a popular Sheik or Cleric that issued the statement over radio.. he said to storm the Germany Embassy followed by the American embassy.

The Islamists would. And no, I didn't say that would justify a full-scale anything, since the US and A! doesn't have a full-scale military to take out the trash with anymore, let alone invade any place at all. But I digress. One nuke on Mecca and Media each would probably send an emphatic message, but it would also be a little over the top.

John Henry Eden: Oh, wait, you argument is that Its ok if we do something to someone else, but its not ok if someone else does it to us.

"oh wait." You KNOW that when an argument opens with "oh wait" that it is going to be rock farking solid. I think Cicero devoted an entire god damn chapter to it.

Alas my argument is that Assange's tweet comparing his situation to a siege, and implying that it justifies attacking the embassies and murder is not only so self-absorbed as to be pathetic, it is utterly ludicrous.

"Oh wait" did the Brits hit the Embassy with a rocket propelled grenade? Because they would have to for your argument to even approach making sense.
