    Just heard an interview with Zuhdi Jasser on Lars Larson while I was running an errand. He says that apologies are a mistake as it confirms their belief that the U.S. is a "paper tiger". But the most interesting point he made in the segment was that these people have not experienced an "enlightenment period" in which religion is separated from government, and how essential this is to achieving Liberty.

    These people are playing at Democracy, but they don't truly understand it. The guy is himself a devout Muslim, but his family has been living in the U.S. since the 1960's. And like the vast majority of Christians, he understands that our freedom to practice the religion of our choice depends upon the 1st Amendment which bars the state from establishing one. And while dumbasses in the ACLU and various atheist groups run us nuts insisting that Christmas trees are "establishing", we know they're full of shit but still understand the absolute necessity of the Constitutional restrictions placed on government in the matter of religion.

    But they don't. They don't get it. When we go around validating the rage of Islamic fascists, we're not enlightening. We're not teaching. We're not living our principles and illustrating how they work.

    Now, the Pakistani government has released the hounds by declaring a protest holiday, and the only response to that the Obama administration can come up with is to run a crappy commercial, apologizing once again for Free Speech. A stronger leader would've headed the whole "protest day" off at the pass through diplomatic channels. But.. we're talking Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, and they haven't got a clue what to do. Instead, they're operating from panic.

    It's not even an apology, There trying to explain to that the US government had nothing to do with making the Film. Which is pretty funny, and Scary that our President and his Admin actually thinks the people Rioting, and the Terrorist that killed our Ambassador actually make that distinction, or Care.

    For Gods sake the stupid Video is just an Excuse. If Obama really believes this is all because of that Video, and has nothing to do with our Policies, or his Bragging about Killing Osama he is more out of his Depth than I thought. If he actually thinks telling these assholes our Government didn't make the Movie will change a think he is even worse.

    Either way, It's just more evidence he is a Foreign Policy Failure.

    saves one life??? Or encourages more shit to kill more people....that's how blackmale works, or extorition if you prefer.

    You really cant be serious on that? People die in that part of the world, it's dangerous, but being weak is worse than kicking ass.

    what exactly are they extorting here by us making a video? humus?
    These people have limited means to see info. There governments tend to nanny them into seeing what they want to see. If this reaches some of those people and sways them, then great.

    I mean don't get me wrong here, I understand why you people are whining. Its Obama and regardless of what he does ( outside of nuking the joint) you are going to whine about it as if you are an expert in dealing with such matters.

    Well, that's the thing. You're confirming for these people that they're RIGHT to be offended. You're validating their outrage. At that point, you're ADDING to the conflagration rather than calming it.

    It's hilarious how they're bashing this video.. Yet "Osama Bin Laden is dead!!" must've been shouted out a hundred times at the DNC convention.. Don't they know that Bin Laden is/was the Islamic terrorists highest prophet? That's why they were chanting "we are all Osama, Obama" at the embassies..

    But let's all hop on some unknown guy, ticked off at the Muslim brotherhood for their treatment of Egyptian Christians.. and decided to make a stupid video in July that no one even watched. Let's just grab on to that and blame that..

    OH.. AND DID YOU KNOW? OBAMA ORDERED THE RAID TO KILL OSAMA?!? Osama IS DEAD AND GM IS ALIVE!!!
