    Right, but what could we have done? Deployed U.S. troops at every embassy in the World and stay on high-alert for 24 hours?

    The Libyan government could've done something if they had a military force, but I was questioning what we could have done.

    Was it a movie? Revenge for Bin Laden? The 9/11 anniversary? Was it spontaneous? Was the government sincere when they condemned it?

    Maybe they just hate us and want to intimidate us. That seems the likeliest explanation and it seems to be working well.
    I think we're pissed off more than anything! Or at least I am.

    No word from Morsi in Egypt. Now with them knowing it was planned. The Libyans have admitted. They have no police force nor an army. That they didnt even have troops in and around Benghazi. That the Berber tribes and their Militias dominate that region of Libya.

    No matter any spin. It was the Anniversary of 911. 2 of our Embassies were hit and it has happened on Obama's watch. Because why? Because the White house Administration is in Campaign Mode. Obama was touting his Foreign policy. Now the truth is out. Egypt has become a failure in our policy. Libya is a complete failure. He has trouble with Israel a which has put a strain on relations. He is still dropping drones in Yemen, Somolia, and Pakistan. Plus don't forget we back the French's and Brits play with Gbagbo in the Ivory Coast. While he sent in Advisors to go after Kony

    This does not include all the Green on blue attacks in Afghanistan by the people we are training.

    As the Alleged President of Libya's own words show the way. They have no control over that part of the Country. Not hard to consider since that is controlled by the Berber Tribes.
    Yeah some of the same ones that Gadhafi belonged to. Which I doubt they will bow to the MB and the Sunni that was transposed in Libya.

    Breaking new: Right now its 2 am in Egypt and they are still protesting down around the Square. Egyptian military has fired tear gas to disperse the crowds. CNN and Reuters is just picking it up.

    They claim they were not prepared for it, which is an explanation not to be taken at face value.

    This is not to say that this was a good thing or that it shouldn't be condemned. Personally, I say that this is a horrid, tragic event and condemn it in the strongest possible terms.
    This was the one term Marxist flexible with our enemies and his friends president Barrack Hussein Obama's war. The man could mess up a marble.

    LMFAO at how narrow of a perspective you have.

    See I recall once when I watched a video of American troops that were using a remote control air strike that killed a few innocent civilians and the US soldiers laughing about it and having fun in how they killed those innocent civilians. Think that was one of those wikileaks videos. then you say "How they kill people over there" as if the US is so innocent and above such things.

    Maybe we just shouldn't have embassies in these kinds of places. I know it's not realistic, but I wish we could have nothing to do with them at all.
