    But then, those abhorrent actions on their part do not surprise me.... they happen with enough regularity unfortunately.
    Frankly, if it were up to me, we would ignore them altogether, as they collectively cause more crap around the world than anyone else. Unfortunately for us, they are tied to the world's oil supply, so we have no choice but to kiss up to them, and it pisses me off to no end. It's like dealing with a bunch of insane children.

    These lunatics wanted to die as violent a death as possible in order to further their cause. I agree with the tactics that were employed.

    That's it??? Really?

    Just because we gave them the green light to oust Ghadaffi does not mean that we gave them the right to free speech.

    Because we have spineless politicians who would rather placate terrorists, than confront the issues underlying the problem.

    We can't give them the green light to anything. They are their own people, it's just that we have to put up with their radicals.

    I say we ablige them.

    They're not going to appreciate those tactics; they're going to see it as a sign of weakness and be encouraged to wage more violence.

    Its affect on the Arabs was predictable,
    Oh, please. Should we treat "sensitive little crybaby" Arabs with kid gloves?

    but they aren't the only ones being manipulated. We are being manipulated as well.
    Let me guess who is behind all this!

    That's basic, standard stuff. And not what anyone is referring to.

    It was released earlier, the attack on Americans was today.

    This sounds like Jimmy Carter and Iran all over again.
