Syria should start worrying. Nothing going their way.

Nordic states fear spread of Mid East attacks

Maybe, just maybe this time Western Europe understands the dangers of radical Islam and finally acts. We all know the weak link in this chain of events, and when you want to make a statement, you start by cutting into the weakest link.

The bad guys of the world
just don't comprehend the "There is no honor among thieves" that law enforcement all over knows extremely well. There is no loyalty to others...only themselves...and while one hand washes the other many times, when push comes to shove, one hand will kill the other hand in a heartbeat.

Countries that harbor terrorists with the belief that as long as they do, everybody 'gets along and are left alone', are finding out little by little that the tolerance of those countries to allow terrorists a foothold and given 'safe passage' by not aggressively getting rid of them eventually become targets themselves on their own land.

This incident in Syria regarding the embassy shows the world that the radical Islam/Muslim population are the ones literally in control in small pockets everywhere and they can strike whenever and wherever they wish because they've been given a blanket of protection for so long that they are emboldened now to act out against any perceivable 'insult' to them.

How would those of like minds feel if the US and its populace attacked and burned down the Muslim embassies anywhere it wanted to just because the Muslim newspapers or tv stations made fun of us or our President....which the radical media does frequently. They have burned our flag, burned effigies of our Presidents, voiced their opinions of us via live tv, the internet, and newspapers, and shown 'disrespect' in various other ways, but they seem to believe that it's okay to do so when that shoe is on their foot instead of the rest of the world.

It's not that they have no sense of humor....it's that they believe they have the right to act upon any insult that they perceive to be there, even to the extent of doing physical and bodily harm, and they are using every religious excuse under the sun to continue to get away with it.

Newsweek never took responsibility for a false story that got people killed, got people hurt, and destroyed property....BUT at the same time, NONE of the people involved in that riot ever went to court and were punished for their actions either. As long as there ARE NO consequences to pay for radical behavior, this will continue all over the world. You can bet your bottom dollar that nobody in Syria will come to trial over the embassy burning either, because there is an unspoken rule in various countries that permission has been granted and the law enforcement agencies will continue to look the other way.

You (countries) can condemn publicly the actions all you want, but until somebody actually does something about stopping it, get ready.....the radicals just get stronger the longer they are allowed to get away with this garbage without paying any consequences for it.

In reply to: My thoughts

All these spontaneous riots, burnings and killings have been 'supported' by many Arab governments. I wonder if we were made aware of these riots beforehand? Did we decide (upon the recomendations of Arab governments) to allow them unhindered? We are letting them to 'blow off steam'.
It may well be a strategy that backfires.

On another thought, did you see the signs carried by many protesters in London? Weren't most of the signs inciting violence? They were putting Europe on notice for another 9/11 type attack. Why didn't the British police do something about it? Why were there no counter demonstrations? I think UK is way over its head with the radical Islamists and they are scared as hell!

having an apology ready even before a product is delivered. It's the new approach to customer satisfaction.
