    I don't understand your point at all. What's the USE?

    That would not be much of an analogy, then, would it?

    Europeans certainly do have remarkable insights as to US foreign policy.

    Do Europeans have any military or industrial corporations?

    Is that why they look to Riot over such and attack innocent people.....they need numbers for what they can't handle on their own?

    Yes, there are over a billion of you and untold hundreds of millions of you want your religion to reign supreme so fervently that you cannot handle any criticism and so go on rampages any time somebody whips you into a frenzy over some obscure little idiotic film or cartoon or some such. Meanwhile, you absolutely refuse to offer the same deference to others that you expect for yourself, thus giving the impression of pampered children who throw tantrums at any provocation, but are quite willing to indulge in the very provocations you react to without any conscience at all.

    It's time grow up. Deal with it and stop running around like spoiled children.

    From the link:

    "In this respect," NightWatch added, "she did not defend US sovereign territory and betrayed her oath of office. She neutered the Marines posted to defend the embassy, trusting the Egyptians over the Marines.”
    So, the ambassador put her own life in jeopardy by not allowing the guards to be armed.

    and, in this case (we seem to have two separate incidents being discussed in this thread, which is getting confusing), the casualty was an American flag.

    How about in the incident in Libya, where the casualties were human beings? I wonder if the guards there were allowed to really guard anything?

    In your example you said Saddam and the Taliban. I pointed out that they served a purpose at the time of Our Need. After that purpose is accomplished. Then there was no further USE for them.

    According to what we have discovered. One of the Libyan Guards joined the protestors and took pictures with a cell phone of what was happening. Do you think it might have been the Libyans themselves that gave up our Safehouse?
