The next time someone draws a cartoon or makes a movie or drops a book, those people will be out killing more innocent people and burning more buildings.
    In a month or less idiots here in the U.S. will be shouting and screaming that Muslims don't show any outrage at the attack. We know that isn't true. They'll still say it.

    How do you know that Muslims are not going after the people who stormed the consulate and killed 4 Americans? If it happened here and Christian nutters attacked a consulate from another nation and killed 4 people what exactly would YOU do?

    The Intrade reaction is very interesting. Apparently, these events have given Obusha a boost and have cut down Romney's chances substantially. I really don't know what to make of that....
    Barack Obama to be re-elected President in 2012
    66.6%
    CHANCE
    Last prediction was: $6.66 / share
    Today's Change: +$0.18 (+2.8%)

    Mitt Romney to be elected President in 2012
    33.3%
    CHANCE
    Last prediction was: $3.33 / share
    Today's Change: -$0.22 (-6.2%)

    Can anyone explain this to me? I just discussed this with my son over dinner and 3we couldn't puzzle it out. We're both voting for Johnson BTW.....

    I understand why the General made the call.... but I don't agree that he should have.

    it is simply not right to have the top General of the wolds best military call up a private citizen and intimidate him to chill out on his speech. ( the intimidation comes from his station, not his words or demeanor.. i'm sure he was polite on the phone)

    good intentions, bad judgement.

    Just postulating so no harsh reactions please....

    Doesn't this film seem to be crying fire in a crowded theater? It's cost lives, done harm around the world and the film itself is moronic and of no art value. Apparently the entire purpose was to cause outrage and boy has it ever succeeded.

    I believe the film achieved more than the producer ever dreamed possible, but the results were indeed his intent. Some fools live to be offended. They are easily manipulated by other fools.

    the "art value" is in the eye of the beholder..

    i mean, a movie that is inflammatory towards Islam is not art.. but a sculpture of Jesus made of feces is?.... art really is in the eye of the beholder.

    I haven't seen the movie... but a movie being critical of something is most likely protected speech here in the US ( a death sentence in some of the more backwards countries)

    in any event, the movie makers ,IMO, are blameless... the responsibility for the violence and death lies squarely on the shoulders of those whom perpetrated the acts... not ISlam, not the movie, not the great satan.. the asshats who did it.

    Exactly. The Life of Brian was a very popular film and no one went nuts over it. A relatively small number of twisted idiots in the Middle East were simply looking for an excuse.

    Then you'd see the argument that murdering Christians nutjobs are "the exception to the rule" when they shoot up planned parenthood while murdering Muslim nutjobs are the norm while peaceful ones are the exception.
