    Or maybe I just missed if. Hopefully someone is talking about it, and I just haven't seen it yet.

    That doesn't mean it's being ignored; it just means it's pretty irrelevant to the points being made. One doesn't discuss the electrical system when examining what flattened the tire.

    Really? Because they said so? In fact they knew about this long before it happened. Now they are going to bring themselves to justice?

    Eqypt has a new government as well, and Obama and Clinton issued a strong warning to them and other countries to get these situations under control or the US will.
    Sure. Obama will lead fro his behind and the billions in aid will continue.
    I am concerned with the reputation of the US because I do not want wars to start in this country and I do not want the world to start to see the US as a threat to world peace. It will not end well for us if we start to wage war at every turn.
    If the US were a real threat to world peace there would be world peace. But it is no threat to anyone because they would rather be liked than respected. So now they have neither.
    I have yet to see Obama issue one apology. If I am wrong, then please give me some link to a quote.
    "The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions," the statement read in part. It went on to say that the U.S. "firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others."

    As Americans they should be defending free speech, not condemning it. And of course Embassies do not put forth statements like these without the knowledge of the Sec. of State or the President.

    Do you think the worlds 1.5 billion Muslims would stand by after Mecca was bombed?

They expressed that loved by having a time of mourning and showing signs expressing their love for Stephens.
    I know it's hard to accept that the war in Iraq was a huge failure and the war in Afganistan wasn't as effective as we had hoped it would be, but it is time to face the facts.
    The only US Ally in the Middle East is Israel. And the US President won't even meet with their leader.

    BHO has gone to too many fund raisings and missed far too many Intelligence meetings to be of much use anymore.

    When Bush ordered Sadam to be taken out, that created a power vacuum that started a civil war. At that point, our troops were put into a situation that was a losing propsition for the US no matter how it was dealt with.

    So, the next time someone burns an American Flag, me and some of my friends can start a riot, in protest the flag burners will be punished and flag burning made illegal?

    Is that what you'rre telling us?
