    Bad guys don't give a fuck about our sensibilities. They care about their cause and nothing more. Strongly worded letters are pointless unless you start acting on them.

    They send one of ours to the hospital, we send one of theirs to the morgue.... They send one of ours to the morgue, we flatten every military and government compound

    That is the response they should get from us

    What do you suggest we do? We're already pouring Billions in American Tax Dollars and weapons in there. They're our "Friends." There is nothing we can do. The poor man died for absolutely nothing. It is what it is.

    Well, that's a pretty massive overreaction. Then again, not shocking. Conservatism is all about emoting.

    Well nobody wopuld expect the empty suit to act on anything, but at least strongly condemn it, that isn't asking too much really.

    Oh Obama loves them.

    Mr. Obama, speaking shortly after his Republican challenger, said there was "no justification'' for the attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other American diplomats but that the incident "will not break the bonds'' between the two nations.

    What a freaking nutcase!

    Over reacting?? No... You don't deal with enemies by coddling them... You don't aid or pussyfoot with tyrant regimes... You crush... You make a definitive statement that not only will aggression be responded in kind, but to such a level that it is really going to be with massive consequence to those who dare attack us, or support those who attack us...

    It's being report on the Guardian that the police forces helped them.

    A Benghazi bank official who did not want to be named, told the Libya Herald that the protestors were all Salafists who had turned up to the building intent on causing maximum damage, bringing guns and RPGs with them

    . He claimed members of the Islamist militia Ansar Al-Sharia were among them. He said that fierce clashes between them and security forces lasted for five hours. He confirmed that the protestors had got into the building.

    According to him, the police guarding the office had allowed the protestors into the consulate. They then forced those inside to leave before trying to set the building on fire.


    Yeah they're your friends alrighty. Freaking 4 dead.

    No one suggested "coddling" anyone. The problem is that your response doesn't solve anything. In fact, it breeds more militancy.
