    I'm sure you're joking, but in case you're actually this uneducated, I should point out that bombing places you don't like often makes problems worse, and often doesn't work out very well anyway.

    If you touch diplomatic immunity, your diplomats will be among the first to get burned.

    Hypocrisy and double standards.

    If you believe that I said we should bomb countries I do not like then you are a uneducated piece of foreign trash,see I can play that game too. I have no problem with diplomats being charged and arrested for actual crimes should they commit actual crimes on foreign soil. However if they go arrest my country's diplomats because they do not wear a burka, bring chewing gum into a country, be a homosexual, carries a firearm for protection and so on then it should be seen as a act of aggression and that country no longer wishes to continue relations with my country.So I could care less if things get worse in that country.Preferably instead of wasting money sending diplomats to other countries the meetings should be done skype or some other similar service and televised live(I do not believe meetings between countries should be secret).
    "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"

    Those diplomats should be arrested.

    The thing is, they don't. The US claims diplomatic immunity even if a consul staff murders people in broad daylight.

    Its sad and quite frankly, aggravating.

    Of course the answer is 'no'.

    Civilians have to obey the laws when they go to other countries - so should diplomats.

    If the diplomats are so stupid that they cannot remember the laws of the country that they are stationed in - then don't send these morons there to begin with.

    And if they don't want to obey the laws while they are there - then again, don't send these whiny babies in the first place either.
