    our people were dead soon after the libyans assigned to protect them abandoned their post
    tell us how and why you believe an American military operation could have prevented their deaths

    So the American people should be apprehensive because some third world religious crackpot says he doesn't like them? You feel Americans should appease religious crackpots? At one time any American would have laughed at this slobbering dickhead but now there are those who, like BHO himself, bow to kiss their rings.

    How things have changed in this once proud country.

    See now, I expected you to provide historical precedence to back up your claims of "historical evidence"....but you haven't, instead you give a weak excuse and off topic tangents.

    They would have tried. No one knew how long the Americans there would be able to hold out against far superior numbers but they could have tried to help. They could have tried.

    Would you want to fight for a country knowing that when the chips are down you will be abandoned if there is a chance of anyone getting hurt?

    You want historical evidence of countries ignoring the sovereignty of other countries? Do you not have access to a history book?
