We can really offend them and stop sending them any money at all. That's my suggestion for those countries in the Middle East or any country for that matter, that decides they hate us. Hate us, hate our money. Our deficit would improve practically overnight. Of course, that won't happen, because the reality is we need to keep sending money as "aide" to countries that hate us.

Well, it was the U.S. that went in there and took Mubarack out, and put the Muslim Brotherhood in charge.
Maybey they are pissed off about that?

Steelie, i have spoken before, about the impending storm of danger, that is the religion of Islam....as it currently is destroying parts of Europe....it is a religion that will never coexist peacefully, with any other religion or peoples. Our freedom of religion, that may give them the key to eventually, infecting this country and using our own freedoms, againest us.....

I remember when you told all of us about how the US had invaded their country with untold divisions and the round the clock bombing.... It was terrible!!!!!

Hopefully, Mittens The Mormon will nuke them first..... or maybe second after Iran..... or third if you want him to take out somebody else too!

WTH?!?!

We are the freedom of speech country. Stop blaming the Jew. Stop apologizing for the American. Stop sending these dipsticks our money and our support.

Clinton would have had a missile in the air by now annihilating the govt building with the new govt in it.

That's American soil. That's an act of war. This may be the war Barry has been waiting for for his reelection, but by his statement, he doesn't have a friggin clue about foreign policy. He apologized to them?!!?!

Maybe he needs to call Blair or W to figure out what needs to happen here.

Hillary just lost any chance of being president by this stupid comment she made.

Let me rephrase, it wasn't a stupid comment. It was a weak and defeated comment. This was time for her game face.

I am not diminishing the loss in any way, but this was a group of protesters, not a country that decided they hate us. It's important to remember things like that in a volatile section of the world. Action must be measured.

Measured? Like Hillary using the words "post, consulate, or compound"

Instead of "embassy"

The president and Hillary made excuses for the Libyan govt...to us. They have Libyans govts back not our people's.

Radell, it was the Libyan govts job to protect our ambassador. Actions speak louder than words.

Maybe they would like to show us how sorry they are so we can measure that.

I disagree that they made excuses for the Libyan government. I don't disagree that it was the Libyan government's job to protect the embassy.

Good Day,

Blue - IMHO - Having lived overseas I get the impression that there is a clear difference between one who identifies themself as Muslim, and those who are "Islamists" (being the more dangerous). We know who the Islamistas are in our own country (CAIR) and those who are simply good Muslims who wish to be part of and share in the American dream (Dr. Zuhdi Jasser comes to mind).

Europe is beginning to wake up to this threat that they placed upon themselves via "political correctness". The question is... is it too late or just in the nick of time?

More importantly, what if anything is this administration going to do about this? My guess, not much.(Maybe fly a few drones around...) A few words of "platitude" will most likely be it. Emabassies, and the land they sit on, are considered the soveriegn land of each country they represent. Therefore, on the anniversary of 9/11 we were attacked twice. If anyone thinks this is just simple happenstance (movie) I think you might be mistaken. The "movie" was and I think is clearly just an excuse. But then we also have to look at how our government initially reacted - with an apology!(The president has since spoken out against the Libyan attack.) But that points out, to me anyway, a huge problem in terms of this administration and their foriegn, and for that matter, domestic policy. Kowtow to Islamists at home and abroad, but attack the foundation of Christian beliefs at home. That is a huge load of hypocrisy if you ask me. I am not one to necessarily believe the president is a "closet Muslim", but he most certainly is an Islamist sympathizer. Look at his words, look at his actions and look at his life, it is as plain as day.
