    Ah yes. The "she was dressed that way so she wanted to be raped" argument.

    Having people working against your efforts is pretty crappy IMO.

    Hardly..

    Like it or not the movie is a provocation, they knew what the reaction would be and they wanted that reaction. They have complicity in the reaction to their actions.. pure and simple.

    Hmmmm....

    I wonder where those "thugs" got their rockets.

    Didn't the U.S. among others give them a whole lot of ordnance not too long ago?

    1. You have any evidence whatsoever that the filmakers wanted US dead?
    2. And no, not hardly.

    Better to be poor in this life and rich in the next one. As for paranoia.... It's not really paranoia if someone really is after you.

    How about BOTH for the win, Alex?

    Exactly, and the US should NOT be.

    Furthermore, we can participate on the world stage through the UN. We do not need to be their spear and shield anymore though.
    We were BETTER about it prior to 1918, but we were not perfect. Furthermore, US involvement in the Useless, sorry United Nations is one of the worst decisions the US Government has made in the last Centuryl and that's saying something.

    Our Ambassadors' body was apparently carried through the streets, a'la Mogadishu.

    Or maybe these assholes should stop being sensitive.

    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.

    Oh, the products of our free speech offends you? Well you know what offends us? Assaulting our Embassy and dragging our slain Ambassador's body through the streets.


    Now according to you, the response to being offended is to be as violent as possible.... so.......
