    No you don't.

    You listen to what right wing blogs and sources tell you.

    Whatever it takes to feed your confirmation bias.

    It's diplomatic and used to stop violence?

    And how did that work out???

    It seems that one persons "diplomatic stance" is another's sign of appeasement.

    The murderers and rioters obviously thought so.

    The attitude that I read over and over and over here is the personification of the UGLY AMERICAN. The idea that I can do any damn thing I want to do because I simply can and get away with it. Its legal here so i will do it. And damn the consequences and damn anybody who gets in the way and damn anybody who does not like it.

    I would have hoped that Viet Nam cured all that sort of jingoistic hubris - and perhaps it did - for those who were alive and learned. Apparently some have to learn not to stick wires in electric sockets for themselves.

    You probably meant to say he gets his briefs on every morning. The rest is about the mirror, fund raising, golf and which celebrities he might get to meet.

    Who are the American allies in the Middle East and how much are you paying them?

    And its the leftists who will always seek out that defeat, no matter what the consequences. Then after they get their way it's all about America having failed.

    I'll take Ugly American over Ugly Muslim every day, twice on Sundays. You know, the sort we're seeing now. That believes ANY level of violence is not only justified, but required because some fellow who doesn't believe in their religion said bad things about it in a movie or book.

    There is such a thing as the Government Accountability Institute and they keep track of these things.

    Try doing some research yourself rather than depending on others. You'll be far better informed if you do.
