    Why do we continue to leave our representatives in harms way? Is there any diplomatic or practical reason an ambassador should need to be in their assigned country on an ongoing basis? Especially when that country is unstable or prone to outbreaks of violence.

    Americans (and probably a few Libyans) who did nothing wrong are dead because a few assholes decided to be intentionally insulting, and an irrational mob decided any death would avenge the insult.

    So...what's Obama going to do about one of his Ambassadors being murdered?

    My guess is...nothing.

    This IS an election year, after all.

    Honestly, there is no way to defend...

    I don't care if you're a Christian, Jew, Muslim, Bhuddist... Jedi. There is never an excuse for this crap.
    I agree but there is also no excuse to making this movie.

    For the love of all that is holy... in the clip on Youtube they portray Mohamed as a liar, homosexual, paedophile, greedy and bloodthristy.

    They KNEW what the reaction would be.. anyone with half a brain would know that.. hence they knew that people would get killed by making this film.

    I condemn the actions of the moron scum in Libya and Egypt with every breath I have.. there is NO PLACE for reactions like this... protest yes, but violent protests.. HELL NO!... , but I can not just sit by and let that American-Israeli jihadist scum get off scot free for what he and his followers have done.

    What would you do? Nuke Benghazi? Attack the Libyan government who had nothing to do with this? Piss off more people by attacking innocents? Let me guess you would all of the above and totally over react...

    How about you start by closing the embassy permanently, throw the Libyan consulate staff out of the United States and tell them that until they have their citizens under control we will not be dealing with them in any way.

    well it's a close tossup to be sure, but I would have to say that most of our awesomeness at war comes from also being awesome at trade.

    IMO, we're not really the spear and shield of the UN. We do what we want, when we want, with or without the approval of the UN and you'd better believe that our interests focus almost entirely on protecting the foreign interests of US and international businesses who purchase our representatives.
