    But Obama being the naive apologist that he is won't do it, of course.
    He sent the Marines Mya....

    This is more of what I am talking about. Libya cannot handle their own domestic issues so the US has dispatched the Marines a Rapid Response Team. I have no reason to believe the US is taking this lightly while Libya attempts to go after these murderers.

    "When the Pentagon called out the Marines on Wednesday and dispatched them to Libya, it wasnít the first wave of an invading force.

    Instead, the 50 Marines are part of an elite rapid-response team and they were sent to assess and reinforce security in Libya in the aftermath of the attack in Benghazi that killed the U.S. ambassador there and three other Americans. Known as a Fleet Antiterrorism Security Team, or FAST, the teamís role is to respond on short notice to terrorism threats and to bolster security at U.S. embassies. They operate worldwide, and the team that went is one of two that are based in Spain."

    Marines headed to Libya to reinforce security
    Too little. Too late. But they can call on some janitorial services to clean up the mess.

    Well cripes! He's not a monster! I'm sure everybody's upset. It's tragic, sad and depressing to all of us.

    Murder and Killing are synonymous.

    May I ask how? I'm not agreeing/disagreeing with you, I'm just curious.

    A movie about a magical dead man does not cause violence. What causes violence is people who are such giant, flaming pussies that they cannot handle anyone making fun of their favorite magical dead man.

The death of the US ambassador is shocking and shows not only how unstable North Africa/ the middle east is but it shows the gulf that exists between Islamic countries and the West. A few months ago I was very pro-arab spring as I hoped it would bring about a change in the region and drag them into the 21st century but so far that does not seem to be the case as the hardliners seemed to have taken control of these regions. The US and her allies need to hunt down who was responsible for these attacks and bring them to justice.
    However if we are to remain in these regions and deal with them on a political level we need to start understanding how different they are and that that videos like the one realeased will only cause more violence and hate towards the West
    so we need to come down hard on the source of such videos.
    And this is an indication of the sissification of the US. I understand that in Native American lore when a male did not want to be manly any longer he could dress in squaw's clothing and do the squaw's chores. Perhaps you should leave the heavy lifting to those men not yet wearing squaw's clothing.

    .... I would not have killed Gadaffi for starters ... I would not keep supporting the infamous Arab Spring which means bringing religious fundamentalists into government to the Arab world...

    that for starters
