    Careful I won't stand for this sort of crap.

    All this has happened since the poor Ambassador was killed.
    Are you mocking the death of Stevens? Shame on you.

    Freedom of Speech, regardless of who's feelings get hurt. People like this can only "offend" you if YOU allow them to, and when you do allow them to, it only adds fuel to their fire because that is EXACTLY the reaction they want. I just think of them as foolish, ignorant and misguided idiots.

    Will we see Ms. Rice sent out to all 5 Sunday shows to apologize for that? How about Hillary, who is looking frightening lately BTW...? Will Obama make it to the Rose Garden to denounce Mr. Sorrano? Doubt it....



    Well don't hold your breath Rep. Grimm....Obama won't do that, he has no respect for religious values, or what offends Christians in this country. He only made a big deal over this stupid movie because it is a good distraction of his failed foreign policy of weakness.
    This is a contrived nonissue regarding the President that both Congress and the US Supreme Court responded to years before. Indeed, two members of Congress used the Senate floor to forward personal agenda regarding this work of art. There is nothing this president or any president should say about Piss Christ in their official capacity.

    Nobody admires Ambassador Stevens more than I do.. and his murder is tragic. The shift in Libya has happened since his death..

    The idea that this violence was acceptable to the average Libyan is stupid.

    I'm sorry Sharon, but from everything I've read from you, it seems that your only interest is in making up reasons for why this violence is happening. Let's face it Sharon, some ideologies promote violence in certain areas in the ME. There are MANY Islamic clerics in the ME who encourage and promote these kinds of behaviors, and take advantage of the uneducated in doing so.

    Then you obviously can't read.

    Stevens was a good man, a friend to Libya and a skilled diplomat..

    The Libyans and their government have attacked the militias and two militias have disbanded.

    I'm more so talking about your cavalier attitude about things that actually do go on in the ME, like extremist clerics working the very poor and downtrodden to their own advantage. You seem to try to minimize things like that in every ME thread. Granted the majority of Muslims do not think or feel this way, but to discount the LARGE number of those who follow this rhetoric is not only naive but irresponsible. There are some ROTTEN things going on over there.

    Yeah, you sound so compassionate when you refer to the deceased Ambassador, as "the poor Ambassador".... I can almost hear the dripping disdain for your having to acknowledge that.

    A debate forum is no place for appeal to emotion logical fallacies. Try coming up with an argument that isn't a fallacy.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
