    I don't care what "material" pisses people off. Get a life for crying out loud. I only take notice when that free speech is used to incite, NOT that it causes inciteful behavior. The distinction is a big one.

    Had they been allowed to, I pretty sure they could of held until relief got there and then the serious whoop ass would of began. How many Marines did they have there? Wouldn't take many, with good fire discipline to hold. A couple of mini guns from the doors of a chopper would of put paid to that sorry lot.
    Thats absurd. You watch too many movies and have no sense of reality. They were diplomats in a foreign country that we helped to liberate, not commando's in a war zone with air support and war ships waiting for their command. Although, two of the diplomats that were killed were ex Navy Seals.

    lmao

    Sorry,I do not wish to debate Obama.

    I still cannot believe you are trying to pin the unrest to ANYTHING Bachmann has to say.Everyone knows she's insane and irrelevant.

    Kinda like Romney saying, "I likes cheesy grits, ya'll"?

    No, nothing like that at all. You obviously never read the article you submitted.

    Whenever a liberal says, "Kinda like" you know they're going to miss the point completely.

    and here's HBO not only going homeboy but lying as well. Funny stuff!

    So that "movie" was not encitement? How dunb do you think we are? Of course anybody that made it would KNOW that it would incite violence. It has happened multiple times in the last 10 years so being ignorant is not an excuse. That would be like claiming you didn't know that yelling "FIRE!" in a crowded theatre might cause panic and injurys.
    The "producer" even hid the real title and most of the script from the cast and crew BECAUSE he knew that no one would participate in what he had in mind. It was stupid, murderous nonsense that only served to bolster muslims claims of persecution. I hate to say it but the whole thing has "radical right" written all over it. I bet Bachman loved it.

    They could only know that if they believed that Muslims were a bunch of ignorant out of control maniacs.

    Muslims have been murdering innocent people for more than 10 years. The modern era of Muslim violence and barbarism would have started at the Munich Olympics in 1972. Again we hear that 'FIRE in a crowded theater cliche' which, by the way, has never actually happened.
    However if there is a fire in a crowded theater then it might be smart to mention it.

    It is a stupid film but making stupid films is not illegal. In fact there is a market for them.

    Bachmann loved it? That's stupid too.

    And as someone not dumb enough to get that, would have a leg up in social circles, no? THAT's the point. Even, and I mean even if it was purposeful, why wouldn't a civilized "people" not get that? If none of it is true, then why all the hub bub? Why kill people that had absolutely zero to do with its making or message? You speak of dumb, and I think you nailed it. It's dumb and despotic to rage against the individual ramblings of a single person or even a group of persons that purposely goes out if their way to denigrate if the message isn't true, or even remotely true. Why kill innocent people over such a thing? I'll tell you why. Because they're so used to being led around like little sheep that they have no concept of rational-objefctive singlular thoughts of their own.

    There are people here on this forum that display the same characteristics every day. I'd say the irrational sheep-type personality is more common than not, and is why we've been unable to evolve socially for the last few decades; perhaps even a few hundred years. Organization is fine, following a particular group is fine, but this should always cease to be the case when the the ideals of the group begin to differ into those that you instinctively know you yourself do not share. We should always strive as people to be objective about other peoples positions, even if we ourselves initially disagree.

    What happened, and is still happening in the ME, is shameful because it seems to represent a majority of the attitudes of a whole very large group of people, and that it does is alarming.
