Terry Jones's ass should be dropped off in Libya. Jones could careless how many of our troops are compromised by his antics, which makes him a traitor.

You cant tell Americans to stop exercising their free speech rights.You cant stop Americans from criticizing a religion that harbors millions of brain dead anti-western extremists.You cant tell Americans to stop being Americans because some radicals moslems say they will kill us otherwise.What must be done is the U.S. must protect Americans by going after and destroying those Libyans or anybody else that killed those embassy workers.We must do this using drones,intel or whatever else that will bring these animals to justice.This goverment-obamas government-wont do this so the next President must do this.

We should have taken care of this within the first 24 hours of the embassy attack. I don't recall any WWII Generals asking the Americans to stop calling the enemy "commie bastards". When the enemy can dictate our language and actions and get resusts then maybe we have already lost the war.

Middle East is run by a bunch of whack jobs. How can people who go off and act like a bunch of maniacs over a movie made by a few nobodies be reasoned with in a serious way.I don`t like Obama but I don`t see how he can be blamed for this, it is the nutjobs in the Middle East who cannot not be trusted in a civilized world.
I don`t kn ow what the answer is but we sure are never going to have peace as long as they are running loose.

Obama was warned about attacks, he did NOTHING. At the Democrat convention the killing of bin laden was mentioned 21 times, Obama likes to mention the trophy kill. Hillary was seen in CBS laughing at killing Ghadafi. Lesson: Don't do the touch down dance til you have won the game. Killing bin laden didn't win the game. Islamics only understand BRUTE force, not sorry ass apologies for the film. But I agree it's a screwed up religion founded by a pediphile.

“US President Barack Obama’s Middle East policy is in ruins. Like no president before him, he tried to win over the Arab world. After some initial hesitation, he came out clearly on the side of the democratic revolutions.… In this context, he must accept the fact that he has snubbed old close allies such as Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Egyptian military. And now parts of the freed societies are turning against the country which helped bring them into being. Anti-Americanism in the Arab world has even increased to levels greater than in the Bush era. It’s a bitter outcome for Obama.”

“Obama was naive to believe that one only needed to adopt a new tone and show more respect in order to dispel deep-seated reservations about the free world. In practice, the policies of the Obama administration in the region were not as naive as they may have seemed at times, and the Americans have always been much more involved in the Middle East than the passive Europeans. But Washington has provided the image of a distracted superpower in the process of decline to the societies there. This image of weakness is being exploited by Salafists and al-Qaida, who are active in North Africa from Somalia to Mali.”

“One thing is clear: If jihadists believe they can attack American installations and kill an ambassador on the anniversary of Sept. 11, then America’s deterrent power has declined considerably. For a superpower, it is not enough just to want to be loved. You have to scare the bad guys to keep them in check.”

I agree the violence of the mob was and still is quite a show. But the Muslim Brotherhood is more then a mob. Islamic Governments if more then a mob. Crapping in Israel is more then a mob. Not taking warnings on my God...Sept. 11 is incompetence. Lies from the WH afterwards is not covering. And I agree Hillary making peace in the Cook Islands was more important, the great obama in Vegas was fun. Where is the outrage if it was bush? Where are the pink suit protesters? President Barack Obama jets off to campaign events Monday in the critical swing state of Ohio, even as Libyan officials and locals have shredded his defensive claim that a spontaneous protest against a Californian’s anti-Islam video caused the Sept. 11 killing of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador.

Now you infer that the Muslim Brotherhood was behind that mudrerous mob?

I guess it's Romney and Bush's fault for not warning Obama that on Sept 11 of any year you might want to take warnings serious. But now we see why they are leaking obama didn't make too many security meetings to distance himself from those warnings since he was in Vegas..baby!

But I agree it was wise to have Hillary in the cook islands, I hope she got everything straightened out there. Most of us are really worried about that situation.

Exactly. America has grown way too soft since WWII. FDR stopped the war the only way the enemy understood. It was a sad day for everyone, but it was necessary to save Americans and put an end to the atrocities of war.

Today we just want to put the enemy in time out and withhold their treats. If they attack us and we damage their property while defending ourselves we try to break them from the habit of killing Americans by rebuilding their country. That should eventually teach them a lesson.

Not inferring anyting but saying fact:
The muslim brotherhood in Egypt calmed the mobs, and prevented riots and death.

Are they a force for progress, and for good?
I don't know.

As I am unaquainted with "code pink" so I cannot speak or even speculate.

Who are you? Elements of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist group whose ideology has inspired terrorists such as Osama bin Laden, are in the United States and have supported terrorism here and overseas. They have close ties to Iran.

I agree that America must go after ANYBODY who commits a crime against citizens, but it won't happen. If you think a Mormon who literally talks to god is going to save us from attacks you are sadly mistaken.

This is going to happen until we get someone with the balls of FDR into the Whitehouse. Or at least someone who doesn't rely on religion to lead him.

Only if you get your "news" from FOXLIES.

In reality, we see Bin Laden for what he is, a Saudi-financed terrorist.

I agree, anyone that relies on on source of news is limited. But there is a reason that Egypt has banned them for years before now. Muslim Brotherhood—the parent organization of nearly every subsequent Islamist movement, including al-Qaeda.

The same group that is responsible for killing many us soldiers and you defend them?

Do you say that the Muslim Brotherhood was behind the mob that attacked the US Embasy in Lybia?
