    I definitely agree. If the country isn't stable or is known to be largely anti-American, we shouldn't have an embassy there.

    Yep they were trying to make way towards our Embassy again. The Egyptian Military has put thmeselves in their way. They are burning things up as the Police and the protestors are lining each other up.

    Throwing Molotivs and CNN is reporting they are squaring off.

    And in a week we'll forget all about it, and not even an anniversary will be held. Then another attack will take place in few months where several innocent people will be murdered and we'll all be pissed off again.

    Meanwhile we'll still be removing our shoes at airports, having body scans, being videotaped 24/7, eventually cavity searches will begin, and we'll still be asking ourselves how we can appease them further. Take our money, our freedom of speech, but please stop killing us.

    Something other than what was done. Our best thinking got 4 Americans killed for no damn good reason!

    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.

    how can you be so one sided and really believe the propaganda you spew?
    This is during a war (not that it excuses killing children), but we don't know the circumstances of this either, and so that is completely irrelevant. This other person is saying that the US is responsible for dragging Qadaffi through the streets and killing him, which we are not.

    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.
    To you Obama's foreign policy in the Middle East is a failure. Perhaps it is a success to him.

    It's nothing short of barbaric!
    Down in Texas White men have killed a few black people and tied them to the back of pick up trucks and dragged them down the road, and although that too is barbaric my point here is that it's humans who are doing these barbaric acts regardless of color, creed, or religious background so its not just "them" its also "us" who do these same things

    Why you bring that into this thread? Open another one if you want to discuss that.

    An end was put to what you deem was a good example.....This barbaric insanity has been going on for centuries and there is no sign it will stop. How about staying on topic.
