    Pffft, no. Karma is just wishful thinking for the oppressed.

    Does anyone think Clinton's statement about.....Oh this is a small group. Reflects what we are seeing with all these Protests.

    Anyone who knows anything about Yemen over the past 60 years would get it.

    NO.. Karma is pretty much meaningless. Yemen has always been lawless and dangerous... and despite efforts by the GCC to build universities and create jobs will probably remain so for the foreseeable future.

    I am terribly annoyed as I have wanted to tour Yemen's ancient ruins for 2 decades.

    Both wrong. Karma is about cause and effect. From the wikilink:

    Any action is understood as creating "seeds" in the mind that will sprout into the appropriate (or inappropriate, my parenthesis) result (Pāli vipaka) when met with the right conditions.
    Hence these protests are not just about a recent YT clip, but an upswelling of negative action caused by an entire history of conflicts between Americans and the Middle East, Christians, Jews and Moslems, religious and secular political forces and tribal and ethnic friction. The ideas behind karma see the interconnectedness and complexity of everything, how a D-grade movie in LA can have an impact on the behaviour of the Yemeni underclass. It in no way means that A causes B, which leads to C, but that wherever we are and whatever we do, we need to be aware of the consequences, however difficult to assess or tangential, of what we do and say.

    So in other words the USA is not the land of the free?

    Of the people, by the people, for the people?

    all that stuff - all bull****?

    Gee I am very dissapointed that the great US constitution can be purchased so cheaply

    (although currently the US constitution and bill of rights is legally suspended due to various fascist instruments called the Patriot Acts and other acts of COngress like the NDAA - good luck)

    It's unacceptable and if I were in charge I'd begin evacuating first of all non-essential personal from all embassies and missions across the middle east and then all essential staff at Embassies and missions across the middle east in nations where the governments cannot give reasonable assurance that their embassies will be protected.

    It is one of the fundamental principles that almost 100% of nations agree upon.

    That embassies are not fair game for ANY REASON.

    Now... Unlike some people who are going to turn this whole thing in Libya, Egypt and Yemen into a pissing match about how violent muslims are, that too is bull**** and should not even come into the conversation.
    Did you personally speak with them? Or are you simply repeating rumors of the reasons for the protests?
    My main function as a Christian is to be the biggest possible jerk as a demonstration of the awe found in God's Grace and Forgiveness. (That love part comes in to play at some point)

    Blame Obama. He put the nail in the Constitution by signing the NDAA. It is what it is.

    Bye bye American Pie.
