clkeagle: So... what do we do now? Invade and occupy a NATO member country?


No need, we're already there.  And have been for thirty years.

BillCo: Have they found the anti-Muslim video that sparked this bombing?  That's the first thing you have to due.  Next, wind up Susan Rice.


That's absolutely what will happen. I look forward to your follow up where you crow about how right you were.

/especially since I know better than to wait for your follow up where you admit you were way off

Satanic_Hamster: The two dead are the suicide bomber and a Turkish guard.  No Republican will care.


They'll pretend to care if it'll make them look outraged.

s1ugg0: Joe Blowme: ModernPrimitive01: Republicans are solely responsible for this. They made Benghazi such a scandal that our enemies saw what was going on and decided to up the ante to further divide the country. At least it's nice to see the enemies of America getting along

[www.osborneink.com image 410x272]

Full retard?  There is a lot of truth to it.  To the terrorists there is no democrats or republicans only targets.  Wouldn't you keep doing something if it got your enemies to start attacking each other?


Wouldn't that mean that the Republicans are therefore traitors?

FTFY.

Lol sucks you can't accept the truth.

If there's one thing you haven't a hint of a platform to stand on, it's talking about or accepting the truth. Now, continue your whirly-derp, I know better than to actually attempt to debate you on any points. I'll happily laugh, though. You're damn comical and I enjoy mocking you.


Hmm intersting. So when Clinton stated that the attack was originally cause by a youtube video.... seriously... how can the secretary of state be this stupid. Oh right, Obama picked her.

A CBS News analyst just  put two and two together and got countries-starting-with-I.

CBS News senior correspondent John Miller, a former deputy director in the National Intelligence Director's office, says al Qaeda will be one of the first groups considered as suspect in the attack, but he also notes the recent Israeli airstrike in Syria, for which Damascus and its staunch ally Iran vowed to retaliate.
Iran, Miller says, has extensive intelligence operations in Turkey, and its Islamic militant group ally, Hezbollah, also has significant assets there.
"Iran, in terms of retribution, would stack Israel and the U.S. together," says Miller.


Oh, joy.

miss diminutive: bugontherug: And yet, you still don't hear the libbiest libs who ever libbed calling for bomb control. Why is that? Because all they want to do is persecute gun owners. Why do libs hate gun owners but not bomb owners?

Why do you hate Ford Pinto owners?

No, see, this is how it works. When something awful happens in a place you've spent time in, or a city like Ankara, where I've spent a lot of time in, where my parents went to university, you feel this sort of... how should I put it... emotional response. Strange how that works, huh?

Another Embassy attack, two more dead.  As Hillary said, "What difference, at this point, does it make?" who was responsible or why it was attacked or what the administration says caused the attack or what can we do to prevent another attack.

Embassies are going to get attacked here and there.  Americans are going to perish in those attacks.  The important thing we have to focus on now is forcibly removing legally owned guns from law abiding citizens.

Was the gate guard a US citizen?  Otherwise I'm not sure the republican outrage meter is going to peak.

I've long theorized that the widespread global emotional response to 9/11 was primarily due to file-sharing networks' international proliferation of Law & Order and Seinfeld reruns.

I was thinking the same thing. Without their Cause, these people wouldn't know what to do with themselves. Eric Hoffer was spot on. Sad.

I'm speechless.  Please tell me that's not real. The fact that it probably is, and that I even have to ask, troubles me.


You know, I actually have no idea if it's real or not... A friend of mine posted it this morning and it's been cracking me up ever since. Wouldn't surprise me if it were real, though. This is the type of crap that appeals to a certain type of person in this country... The same type of people that purchase crap like this:

Get over what? Ridiculing the GOP? Sorry, that's way too much fun these days.

Couldn't they have waited until 9/11/2013?  That way, I'd get confused all over again in the same way that I do when people refer to Benghazi as the "9/11 attacks".
 
2013-02-01 09:29:21 AM
It's obviously a false flag operation planned by Karl Rove and financed by the Koch brothers. That is the only reasonable explanation.

Yeah, yeah, I know.  It's just slightly inconvenient that the blowing-up happens in a third where I am right now... although after my presence coincided with pre-election riots in Uganda, post-election killing in Kenya, a government collapsing in Canada, and any number of other interesting events that  I swear I had no involvement in ;) I should probably be used to it by now.

If he'd called that reasonable violence, he'd be de tied as a select muslin (again).

If he'd called it purposeful violence, he'd be painted as emboldening terrorists by acknowledging their purpose.

If he'd called it stupid violence, he'd be painted as an elitist that thinks these types of attacks are beneath him and he isn't paying enough attention to the threat.

If he focused on the threat, he'd be painted as too interested in what's going on in the Middle East and with Islamic countries (OF COURSE!), and not carig about Americans that need jobs.

It just does not matter what Obama says, the spin doctors are out to make certain everything he says is viewed as wrong on every single account. No matter what. Even when he takes their position, now that position is the worst thing ever.

born_yesterday: Since we oppose the secession and independence of the Kurdish population in northern Iraq (as well as the secession of neighboring Kurds in Turkey), they may be lumping us all together on this one.


That's what I was thinking--and that the US classifies the PKK as a terrorist organization. That doesn't help.
