    THe patent hypocrisy of the mindlessly politically correct astounds me, sometimes.
    It's because to them, a film has the imprimatur of the government. Mostly because all the movies there are like that. In that mindset, this is the USA insulting their religion. It's easy for us to say, "Well, some asshole made a dumb movie, but he has a right to his point of view" because that's what it's like here. Anybody with a video camera can make any movie they want to here. There, the government clamps down on you if you do anything that's not their view of reality.

    Meanwhile the patent hypocrisy of the "whatever is politically correct, I do the opposite" crowd is on full view here. It always gets turned into how persecuted Christians and Jews are, and fomenting a "holy war" because you don't like their "holy war."

    It was not directed at you personally but your belief that Americans in general are hated. Apart from western Europeans, in general, I don't believe that's true.

    No, it is a matter of degree and prevalence.To speak out only in one direction while ignoring that which is magnitudes more prevalent (and sanctioned) in the other is the height of hypocrisy. It may be motivated by the desire to avoid the appearance of racism, but is racist in and of itself, because of the enormous double standards.

    Having consistent standards is not "doing the opposite" of the politically correct so much as it is avoiding the mindless dogmatism that demands the double standards. I am neither Christian nor Jew, so I am not motivated by a sense of group identity. I simply get fed up with all the b.s. by those who have simply predetermined they must toss out nothing but apologia whenever the discussion centers around the behavior of Islamists.

    Also, the so called US embassy in Bagdad has approximately 15,000 personell within its boundaries - most of whom are military and intelligence people. And this embassy has 600 buildings in it - a bit of an overkill dont you think, just to cater for the US tourist in Iraq who may need a new passport dont you think?

    So if you wish to call this a pull out of troops then I would like to see your version of a full scale land invasion
    You are incorrect, besides the embassy personell and under 10,000 private security people there are no more troops in Iraq. Where do you get your info?

    Why not? He served as Mayor for 2-3 terms in Cali so he must've been doing something right to get re-elected so many times.

    Honestly, there is no way to defend...

    "This film maker offended me, let's go kill people who had nothing to do with it".

    I don't care if you're a Christian, Jew, Muslim, Bhuddist... Jedi. There is never an excuse for this crap.
    Correct, and. . .

    If a man living somewhere in Dumpwater, MS or Trailertown, KT decided one day to put a sticker on his front window that read "Christ sucks! Churches are violent! Free your mind and become a Muslim. Allah is great!", which of the following would result

    a) Nothing. Anyone walking by his house would laud him for having the courage to speak his mind.

    b) Nothing, though locals walking by his house would be offended, but would nevertheless respect his right to free speech.

    c) People would knock on his door and tell him to remove the sticker, out of courtesy to other residents, or risk the consequences.

    d) His house would be shot up with guns and/or firebombed the next (or same) day.

    The millions are not fools if Obama wins a second term of office.

    You guys that are blaming the movie maker, shouldn't you be blaming the man who translated the movie into arabic and posted it on You Tube?

    The movie maker did it in English, I assume, I haven't seen it.

    The flash point came when it was seen in arabic on You Tube, supposed flash point anyway.

    Shouldn't the translater take full responsibility?
