    Edit: this post was meant for the clown. Sorry about that.
    No prob. I calmed down a little after reading the entire post!

    If the government was aware, why wouldn't they have evacuated the Americans?

    I supported their actions. I do not know where all this conservative fundamentalism is coming from. Read all my posts and then come back and we will discuss this.

    Perhaps you didn't skip your intelligence briefings.

    They would've been the first target. I believe you would have seen even more deaths if there were boots on the ground, the fundamentalists would've targeted them, as well.

    I don't know and frankley I do not understand why Stevens was in the second largest city of a post revolution country without proper protection.
    It does seem odd, doesn't it? We shouldn't have relations until a country has stabilized itself.

    Where do you get your information? There are always people trying to get into the USA!

    And as to WWII, are you making the claim that this hatred of which you speak is the result of saving Europe and the world from Nazism and Fascism??

    The Occupy movement really sucks. Occupy Benghazi and Occupy Cairo were especially bad. Has anyone checked with Soros? Has anyone checked with their supporters in the Democratic Party?

    It is all just fun and games until somebody gets murdered.

    Glad I could help.If you have any other questions feel free.

    It seems like you took the bait hook line and sinker - lol

    Socialism is not the opposite of Capitalism.
    Capitalism isnt even a political system - its an economic model

    Obviously you haven opened your eyes and looked around you

    More delusions.

    Ask the Germans why they lost WW2 - it wasnt due to the USA entering the war (again very late)

    I see here, that the Soviets lost 23 million people in WW2

    The USa has lost approximately 1.2 million defense personell in ALL of the wars it has participated in

    Why are you so concerned about Fascism? You live in a fascist Corpocracy
