    Can we agree that it's not a good idea to finance Egypt so they can buy submarines?

    Oh come now, the left is to AFRAID of Muslims to actually DO anything. I mean they may actually hurt them if they exert their rights and all. Much easier to deny rights to returning vets and conservatives.

    Time to yank the rug out from under them: not one cent in aid and call in the loans.

    How about we stop calling their religious figurehead a pedophile and other shit like that? Might be a good place to start.

    The government hasn't. But how are we supposed to stop individuals exercising their free speech? How the heck does anyone engaging in free speech justify them in attacking us?

    What's this "we" shit? You got a mouse in your pocket?

    How about you get your head out of your leftist keester and make an attempt to understand that these TERRORISTS are using their religion as a convenient EXCUSE to commit MURDER?

    How about your Obama administration stop APOLOGIZING to appease the sub-human scum in the middle east who have no regard whatsoever for human life?

    Kill them all. Let Allah sort them out!

    Who in the hell said that in this thread? Worse, far worse has been said about Jesus and Christians with no violence. If you wish to defend intolerance and theocracy go ahead just don't lie about it.

    Appeasement is perceived as WEAKNESS. There's nothing difficult to understand about that. What's more, this incident happened on 9/11. It's completely naive to believe that there's no connection there.

    We can't appease these people anyway. Putting limits on Free Speech wouldn't be enough, even if we were all cowards enough to agree to it. What they want is our conversions or our deaths. THAT is what is meant by Islamic Extremism.

    Because radicals are irrational. They view something like that and assign that viewpoint to our entire society....MUCH LIKE THE VIDEO DID TO THEIR SOCIETY.

    Radicalism and irrationality isn't just an Islamic trait.

    Believe me, I am not defending these attacks...not by any means. But actions have consequences....and just because we are a free society with freedom of speech does not mean that other nations have to recognize that freedom. In fact, these extremist ideologies could start yet another fucking war over there.

    I don't know about you, but I'm sick of us being over there spending hundreds of billions of dollars, thousands of American lives, and countless Middle Eastern lives that really, only serves as another express route of money flowing out of our country like a seive, never to return.
