    I have some reactions to this, but I don't think we've seen the last of it. I'm expecting more attacks in the come days. As far as I'm concerned Biden and Obama are at least partially responsible for this.
    Most of these ****ers dont need a 'reason'...just an excuse. Obamas foreign policy is a joke. When it comes to leadership he is a worthless mutt. But when it comes to 'cause'? His and Bidens didnt cause this. They are accountable for their inaction...but not the attacks.

    They are our ally. And the DNC threw them under the bus. That's fkd up. Now the terrorists can claim that a majority of the US believes that Israel has no capital. You don't think that will encourage recruitment and assist brainwashing?

    My hope is that the DNC didn't really do that.

    Murder is murder.

    "Thou Shalt Not Kill" is very clear. Unlike the Qu'ran, which introduced exceptions and excuses, the Bible is clear on this verse when it comes to Christianity. The fact that Jesus went to the cross willingly and surrendered his life rather than raise a fist to defend should leave no confusion. Abraham and Jesus passed the very black/white law. No amount of excuse or international law changes the fact of what the act is. The Bible is full of excuses and armies of God, but Abraham and Jesus are the tenets of Christianity just as they are the tenets of Islam. But at least Muhammad changed the law up to allow for it in his religion. He's not the hypocrit. One might even state that he was the earthly practical side of the Abrahamic perspective. Jesus spoke of the world as it should be and might be (the original "Gandhi"), whereas Muhammad spoke of the world as it is.

    Yeah, "threw them under the bus". Not really, but whatever. And it's not like they'd be the first or last "ally" we throw under the bus.

    And a good scolding is just what they need, as well as billions of dollars in aid.

    It's our repsonsiblity when their clownage bleeds over onto us. The Muslims have been messing around outside the ME for centuries; centuries before the United States even existed; centuries before the Americas were even discovered.

    The attack on the consulate was believed to be related to a trailer for Bacile’s two-hour film “Innocence of Muslims” that was posted on YouTube and enraged conservative Muslims for its claims, among other things, that Muhammad approved of child molestation, and its depiction of Muslims as terrorist thugs.
    They're kinda proving the point here though.

    And I am not a "freedom loving patriot" ?

    Yes, Christians and Muslims fighting is a long and time honored tradition. But it doesn't mean we need to continue, or that we should escalate it or play into their propaganda. Actions do have consequence.
