It seems that the people of Libya don't want much to do with these kinds of killers either.

They're just other members of the 99%, trying to get through life, peacefully.

Remember now we just got done trashing their country with NATO. You think that would go unchecked? So, I hear we're sending in more drones, troops, and marines to shoot up the town some more. As if we haven't learned from the first 9-11.

So if the whole problem in Libya was "Gaddafi killing protesters"... what do we do about protesters at the Embassy?

[-] -1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

"Protesters"? What is that a joke.? The attack was a planned military assault with RPG and assault rifles. To call them protesters is dishonest. Twisting the truth. They carried the black flags of the extremist Al Qaeda, they pulled up in pickup trucks and infiltrated the small group of protesters.

Have some respect for the innocent honorable diplomats they assassinated. I guess some war is ok with you. If it's against Americans it's just protesters?

Why don't you tell us Trev? What should we do?

[-] 1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

You're saying the people Gaddafi killed did not have weapons? Because they did and they used them. Specifically in 2011.

What we're seeing now in all these countries is called Blow Back from failed foreign policy.

Just like when Reagan's failed policies lead to the creation of the Taliban. Nothing good is going to come from bombing a bunch of countries. It doesn't make them like us.

If it was up to me on what we should do.... I'd say not bomb these countries all throughout 2011 and the previous years. Then they won't hate us. But since we're past that... just looks like an endless war on terror is the future.

My solution is GTFO these countries years ago. Or now.

Run away? You're a coward.

This is not blowback. that is simplistic. This is a small group of extremists who are trying to take control of Libya during a transitional period. The extremists are watching as the moderates are trying to form a govt.

They have used this extremist film (created by christian extremists, working with American right wing wackos) to incite violence.

What you do is stand firm. against extremism. The moderate Libyan people support a moderate dem govt. They have marched peacefully in support of the US.

We should stand with moderates against religious extremists everywhere.

Running away is what the extremists want. We stay and help create a moderate peaceful Libya.

And of course wehelp bring the killers to justice.

We what?Who are you that you think you or any citizen can influence US foreign or domestic policy in even the slightest degree?You can't vote politicians into office who will create legislation to benefit ordinary Americans-unless that same legislation hands over huge amounts of money to corporations either directly or indirectly.Want revenge?Get a bill through Congress that somehow pays a huge amount of money to Stratfor or Blackwater,Xe et.al.,and the Seals go in and kill a bunch of people who might have done it.Want the attacks on Americans abroad in Muslim countries to stop?There is NO way to stop these attacks because we CAN'T stop our government from deploying drones and forking over trillions to the racist twisto Zionist freaks in Israel.The corporate entities rake in trillions of dollars because of this pressure cooker Middle East unrest and they do all they can to promote it.There is total joy and ecstasy in Israel every time Americans are attacked in Muslim countries and the Mossad is ready,willing,able,and eager to promote these incidents.Do YOU have some kind of special source of information that can definatively indicate that the Mossad was not involved?

Sorry, forgot to mention that they were protesting over an online movie that they thought showed disrespect to Muhammed.

Nope. The people that were attacking in Egypt were chanting " Obama Obama we are a billion Osama" . It was about killing Bin Laden.

Sorry I mixed it up, but The Libyans still killed the Ambassador and three others.

Muslims know how to drive taxicab good. they also know how to operate huge passenger aircraft which has programmable autopilot. autopilot can be only activated from the cabin, but also can be reprogrammed from the earth. or maybe i was wrong with taxicabs. Muslims knows how to ride a donkey. Sorry I mixed it up, but The Libyans still killed the Ambassador and three others

Obama will essentially ignore it.

Just like he ignored osama

That would be the hope, but most likely the politicians will acts as insanely as you imply.

Unless you pathetic liberals wake up and defeat Obamunism....

A sad day is coming when Americans are going to have to drag foreigners out of embassies in Washington in order to satisfy our childish revenge fantasies.

So, All mighty God, let us pause and enjoy the moment, because thankfully we can still send the 6th Fleet into downtown Benghazi and flatten the place. I know you libs think it's all about oil in the Mideast, but the truth is our government is spending a fortune to enrich our fantasy life, to satisfy that primal racist urge which all real Americans feel. Yeah, baby, we are going to kick some butt - in the name of civilization - and then we are going to feel self righteous about it. It don't get much better than that.

Anyone who wasnt a slave to cash would simply decide to stop fucking around over there constantly.

One a day dies in Afghanistan. Think we might want to stop that? 14k people are killed over here every year. Not concerned about that?

[-] 1 points by Clancy (42) 2 years ago

S you think we shouldn't do anything sout this? That we should just let them off the hook?

[-] 2 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

LEt me come into your living room and start declaring how fucked up your famliy is.

Then lets see how long it is before you shoot me. Or at least attack me.

How about instead of more bombs, which isnt working, we take a step back and ask ourselves "Why the fuck are we over there to begin with?"

[-] 0 points by SteveKJR1 (8) 2 years ago

How about we step back and say - lets get out from over there and start taking care of our own. I think that's a better idea.

[-] 0 points by TitusMoans (2451) from Boulder City, NV 2 years ago

Tell us what you propose "we" do. Some crazies killed some Americans in Benghazi. Maybe we should flatten the city, but then we may have to flatten Aurora, where a crazy shot up a movie theater.

Crazies will be crazy in whatever country they reside. You should worry more about the crazies, who seek almost any excuse for even more war.

[-] -1 points by SteveKJR1 (8) 2 years ago

Obama will - you can be sure of that - all he does is provide lip service - his muslim roots are now showing.

What do you propose? Blowing up more people? We just got done attacking them.

[-] -1 points by SteveKJR1 (8) 2 years ago

Obama doesn't have the balls to take a stand. Let me remind you that you can be sure other embassies will be attacked. Why you ask?

Because Obama doesn't have the balls to protect them as they need to be. If we had the resources at hand to take out any intruders that riot would be short lived - you can be sure of that.

All over a stupid movie - really show how intelligent these dirt bags are doesn't it.

What do you propse? Attack them?

[-] 1 points by SteveKJR1 (8) 2 years ago

No, but have enough people on hand in an Embassy just case an attack should occur - how hard is that to do?

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

Thats called a base, not an embassy.

[-] 1 points by SingleVoice (158) 2 years ago

Embassies in volatile locations always have marines to guard it. What I don't get is why there were no marines in Bengazzi to protect that embassy and the marines in Egypt were not allowed to have ammo in their weapons.

http://nation.time.com/2012/09/13/whats-worse-no-marines-or-possibly-unarmed-marines/

And this wasn't about a film...it was a planned attack on 9/11. And before the first attack, the crowd was chanting "Obama, Obama, we are all Osama. Seems they were also angry about Obama spiking the football over and over again about killing their prophet. The film was just an added bonus to stir up more frenzy while they attacked the first embassy and gave them an excuse to attack more. They attacked the embassy in Yemen today.

And about that film, the embassy and the state dept apologized for the film made by a citizen making fun of Mohammad for not being sensitive to a religion as if that was the reason for the attack. Why are our leaders apologizing for freedom of speech. We don't control speech or expression here in this country. At least not yet. I don't remember christians attacking when Maplethorpe thought putting a crucifix in a jar of urine was art. I don't remember Christians getting any apology for insensitivity. Why are we apologizing about our freedom of speech. In fact, people in this country at that time were defending his freedom of speech. What's the difference between that and this? Oh, that's right...it's fanatic muslim terrorists this time. We have to be sensitive to them.
