Demetrius: Nabb1: Demetrius: Nabb1: An apology for these continued "abuses" of freedom of speech from the Secretary of State may be in order.

Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences.

No, but there's no reason for our leaders to apologize for our Constitutional rights because some people choose to act like a bunch of savages when someone says something they don't like.

Shockingly we're trying diplomacy. And while these idiots reacting this way is inexcusable, we know what it's going to happen and shouldn't expect much else.

Looking at it another way...I've got a relative that's a bit racist. He made some somewhat offensive comments in front of some friends, particularly offensive to one. He's got a right to say what he likes, but I called him on it because it was offensive not only to my guests but to me as well. I could have easily tried to laugh it off and sweep it under the rug, but I likely would have lost a friend. Just because he can say something doesn't make it right.


Yeah, I thought of a reply to this, but then looking at the rest of the thread, I think I'm just going to call it an agreement to disagree and watch this thing get awesome. We've had dozens of threads picking apart the speech issue.

You want any popcorn?

Coco LaFemme: Basically this. My dad used to get a subscription to Newsweek, but stopped about 10 years ago, I think. It's steadily gone down hill, rapidly approaching the molten core of the earth.


yeah, your dad definitely ruined it for everyone.

It wasn't horrible 3-ish years ago, but it rapidly (like in one week) turned into People Magazine But Sorta About Politics And Stuff.  We cancelled.
 
Which sucks, because I like having a paper magazine with good but somewhat lighter political/national/world news content.  Everything has turned either to crap or is far to heavy and detailed for sitting on the toilet quick reading.

That was my problem with reading The Atlantic, my ass was numb and sore by the time I finished an article.

On a serious note: if folks don't understand by now that there is a lot of resentment about policies and actions over the last 75 years in regard to the Middle East by folks from the West, then a single article isn't really going to dispel or educate that degree of any self awareness or sense of history.

Look at the dismantling of Iran's greatest democracy, authored by Western powers, and reinstallation of the Shah after being deposed. Look at Afghanistan's cynical use to oust the Russians, and consequent abandonment. Look at the plight of the Palestinians--who, to be quite fair, were just not quite as quick off the gate to get their own chunk of pie as the Jews were; and to be fair, they didn't have backers with quite as deep pockets. Look at Libya. Look at Syria. Look at Iraq. Look at how we've encouraged the most radical elements, when it suited our purposes, and how quick we have been to disavow them. Look at the policies that the US has advocated publicly, and then sandbagged when it came time to real negotiations.

There are folks in the Middle East who will NEVER trust a damn thing ANYONE from the US government says in policy, and were our roles reversed, we wouldn't either. Why are so many angry? They actually paid attention in history...

Ever hear of Muhamad Ali?  Made a living beating people up.  A few happy photos of people (probably happy at the fact that some Westerner lost their car keys) does not make up for a lifetime of rope a dope.

I think we should send a sh*tload of beard trimmers over there as humanitarian aid. Maybe if all of these guys' faces didn't look like nutsacks, they would be in a better mood.

Why can't we just say "fine, go fark yourselves" and completely stay out of the Middle East's bidness as much as possible?

Oh right, oil. Damn.

Just because someone said something doesnt mean you can loot riot and kill either...

kbronsito: Angry mob lashes out against people that had nothing to do with the source of their anger damage property and kill four (OMG HOW BARBARIC THIS IS AN OUTRAGE).

Angry mob in charge of the most powerful military in the world lashes out and bomb's country that had nothing to do with what they were angry about needlessly sacrificing civilians and troops, causing untold property damage and death (Meh. C'est la vie).


I see where you're going with this...and as much as you disagree with it, our reasons for doing it (going to war) were still better than "you talked about my sky wizard and it hurt my feelings so I need to kill someone."

No, beard wax. They can have beard competitions, and then farkers can dismiss them for being hipsters. It's a win-win-win.
