    U.S. EMBASSIES TO COSTLY TO MAINTAIN.
    We need to start closing some of our embassies because they are too costly to maintain and to security in light of terrorist attacks.

    The only embassies they really need to worry about are the ones in the ME.

    Those in friendly countries are relatively safe.

    Those in the ME are the ones where the marine guards NEED REAL BULLETS and extra security. Those guards should have orders to shoot to kill if anyone tried to break in.

    Common Sense. Apparantly our State Department doesn't have any. Assholes.
