KyngNothing: // Are you now arguing AGAINST keeping heavily armed soldiers/Marines/etc around to protect the State Dept (aka the consulates and embassy?)

If we need 25,000 Marines to protect a consulate or embassy in a country, then we probably shouldn't be there to begin with.

rtaylor92: And my second comment is that they wouldn't dare fire a nuke anywhere in Europe's direction so they are the biggest threat to other middle eastern and asian countries and again, I just don't care if they all chose to blow each other off the face of the earth. Not our problem.

Do you honestly think that if Pakistan nukes, oh let's say....India, that won't effect us? Or Iran? Or Israel? Or whomever? Come on man, we're all interconnected at this point.

Under Secretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy, who said that the State Department would need U.S. military troops in Afghanistan to protect them and help them well past 2014.

Did anyone RTFA? if we are going to have an embassy there it's going to need a lot more security than a consulate in Benghazi.

Why on Earth are we still there? We shouldn't be there now, and now we're going to stay there indefinitely?
