    Anit-American violence sweeps across 23 world nations

    So much for Obama's foreign policy of supporting the Arab Spring.

    New violence sweeps countries across Islamic world | Nation / World News - The News Tribune

    An unprecedented wave of anti-American violence swept across Africa, Asia and the Middle East on Friday, with protesters angered by an amateurish video that mocks the founder of Islam storming and scorching U.S. embassies in Tunisia and Sudan, ransacking a German embassy in Sudan, and setting a fast food restaurant ablaze in Lebanon.In all, there were protests in at least 23 nations, stretching from Morocco to Indonesia and from London to Mogadishu, Somalia. At least seven people died from the violence.

    The explosion of demonstrations left the Obama administration scrambling both to halt the attacks and to defend its actions in the midst of a hard-fought election campaign where questions of foreign policy had largely taken a backseat. But there seemed to be no way to calm anger over a video clip whose production and dissemination the United States had nothing to do with and whose origins are still largely uncertain.
    That's a lot of people involved in violence in the name of a peaceful religion. But at least they said their prayers first.

    In Sudan, an estimated 5,000 protesters descended on the German Embassy in central Khartoum after Friday prayers, breaking in and setting part of the building on fire.
    So will this world wide spreading violence help Obama rethink his foreign policy strategy? Or is it too late?

    This is just a bunch of terrorists and other Islamofascists just using what they can as an excuse to protest and cause violence. This has nothing to do with Obama and who ever made the video is not at fault.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    A bunch is quite an understatement, don't you think?

    So if the US had not interfered in Libya and Egypt do you think this would have happened?

    Maybe if both sides stop fostering this notion that the west and Islam are at war with each other (and both sides do it a lot), then this kind of stuff wouldn't happen.

    its hard to blame the west for a bunch of idiots who go bonkers over a silly movie. Last I checked Christians didn't go on rampages when someone put a crucifix in a bottle of piss or when rock singers like Ian Anderson bashed Christian sects
