if you read my other post, based on embassy defense in africa, the best course is to snipe the leaders/heavy weapons and it tends to chill the crowd the %$^ out pretty quick. I heard reports they might not have even had live ammo though, and certainly not enough people to protect against the size of crowd that showed up.

Correct. You don't invade a country because a band of insurgents raided your embassy. Had the Libyan government raided the compound, that would be a different story. I'm all for mounting heavy machine guns on the corners of the embassy buildings.


...or set up some motion detector machine guns in the courtyard like these.

Do these idiots really even listen to themselves? Foreign policies under Bush is good. The same foreign policies under Obama is bad. Morons.

Re: All things Middle East related

I enjoyed Sam Harris' take on the recent Shenanigans from the ME:

Freedom to offend

At moments like this, we inevitably hearófrom people who donít know what itís like to believe in paradiseóthat religion is just a way of channeling popular unrest. The true source of the problem can be found in the history of western aggression in the region. It is our policies, rather than our freedoms, that they hate. I believe that the future of liberalismóand much elseódepends on our overcoming this ruinous self-deception. Religion only works as a pretext for political violence because many millions of people actually believe what they say they believe: that imaginary crimes like blasphemy and apostasy are killing offenses.

Re: All things Middle East related

So I'm hearing Obama and company had 3 day warning about the uprising in the Middle East and did nothing. Where has this been in the news?

Show some respect, firstdown, the man is running for re-election. He doesn't have time for trivial shit like this.

Re: All things Middle East related

Really bad news from the middle east today -

This morning the Muslim Brotherhood sent a warning that if the United States continued meddling in Egypt , Libya , and other potential hot Spots in the Middle East, they intend to cut off America 's supply of 7-11 and Motel 6 managers.

If this action does not yield sufficient results, cab drivers will be next, followed by Dell, AT&T and AOL customer service reps.

Finally, if all else fails, they have threatened not to send us any more Presidents.
