    One of the SEALs that dies was there specifically to trackt down the people who had some weapons and then inform his group who would have killed these people. That is what I am talking about, not the killing of innocents.

    And am I talking about killing innocents???

    I am talking about fundamentalist fanatics who are out of control..... I am talkim about Obama apologizing to them and giving a s*** about the feelings of other religions... in this case the Christians.

    Not if you have clear principles, and stick to them. What are they going to do, if he takes a stance of strength in his convictions? Keep rioting and tearing up their countries?

    There was no apology. They called the film a peice o' **** (more eloquently) and said it does not represent the views of the US Government.

    But he didnt apolgise to the fundamentalist fanatics who were behind the attacks in fact he condemmed their actions. He was apologising to the millions of innocent Muslims who were offended by the film, large majority of them didnt attack an embassy in fact there have been quite a few peaceful marches. He apolgised to them and then distanced the US from the film and even aired commericals in Pakistan saying that the video was not a represesntation of America's views to Islam.

    no but they could ask US embassies to leave their countries as well as US forces, they could end Trade agreements, stop oil sales to the US or of course attack American personal in these countries. He did the right thing he distanced America from the film and now is working with the ME trying to contain and end these marches.
