    LOL get a grip. The US was not really isolationist pre WW2.. it was just a not a major power or considered as such. Its military was pathetic and its influence over world affairs up to 1918 was poor and only gained some traction after WW1 because of in part the decline of the British Empire. The US "rise" can almost be directly correlated with the decline of the British Empire.... they passed each other around 1939-44. After that the US was the big "dick" on the field, taking over from the previous "big dick".. the British Empire.

    Sure seems to be a lot of Dhimmi like thinking going around....

    I call bull**** on your bull****.

    Unless someone can point to something in the film that's explicitly illegal, I'm going to go ahead and place 100% of the blame on the idiots who perpetrated the murder.

    In fact, even if you can identify something illegal in the film, I'm still going to place 100% of the blame on the people who stormed an embassy and killed an ambassador; they had nothing to do with the movie.

    Now personally I would want Google to pull the video from YouTube. They pull jihadist crap, so why not this crap.
    You're Right.....He was responsible for getting it up on U-Tube. As they showed the movie last June and it bombed.

    Obama just pissed off Israel (snubbing Netanyahu) and ONLY condemned the death of a US ambassador within days. His foreign policy abilities are on full display. Bush would have embraced Israel and had an aircraft carrier on its way.

    That's actually why I'm a fan of the Arab Spring. They want a religious war - let's give it to them before Sequestration takes full effect.

    Cry me river. The film is made for one reason only.. provocation of the Islamic world.. it is made to spark protests and riots.. pure and simple. You can cry free speech all you want, but the persons involved in this movie are just as much to blame as the radical morons who carried out the violence in Egypt and Libya.

    Even in your own country, not being directly involved in a murder does not excuse you if you knew that the actions would result in deaths or violence.

    What? Dude, we've been bloody imperialists since we were founded. War and trade are the two things we are really good at.
