it's no wonder our men were left unprotected and are dead.
1- We are subsidising Libya.
2- They must get their radical element under control.
3- We have the responsibility to mentor them and also to make them understand that not adequately protecting US interests there is not acceptable practice. We shouldn't be apologizing for some 14 +/- minute film. They must know that there will be consequences and to temporarily withhold aid until we are satisified that this will not happen again is NOT condeming.
I never advocated, or implied that anything as drastic as turning them into glass should be an option.
What I hope is that we will make it plain and clear that if they do not behave and protect our interests and their own people the aid stops permanently.
What might be one of their biggest problems right now is the people have nothing to do. Their country is in ruins, they are jobless for the most part, food is rationed for so many. They have a lot of problems period and then some terrorist group comes in and stirs them up it's a frenzy of barbaric behavior. That's the sad part. But, we cannot police them they must get control of their own situations and we may have to draw some strict lines in hopes of forcing them to do it now and not six months from now.
just not enough of them to always overcome the noise of those bent on evil. Decent people are also very uninteresting to to the press. An act of decency that's caught on camera and makes it to press sometimes does so by accident. Oops! We didn't mean to show someone being good. Make sure it doesn't happen again.
Stevens was a friend to the rebels.......it only figures that there would still be some around that would try to help him, even if they didn't immediately know who he was.
And this still doesn't discount the fact that the media is still portraying this attack as a 'protest' gone wrong. There is proof that there was NO protest going on prior to the attack. And you don't bring RPG's to a protest, JP. This WAS planned and coordinated ahead of time, and yet, as long as BO and his Admin cling to the 'protest because of the movie' story, the press will help him push that garbage. BO is an incompetent who was warned THREE days before everything hit the fan that it was coming and he did NOTHING to warn or protect our embassies and consulates.
>>>>The account underlines the confusion that reigned during the assault by protesters and heavily armed gunmen that overwhelmed the consulate>>>>
I'm giving you a link to a liberal CNN report......please note within that article that CNN is still clinging to BO's account that protests were going on, and yet the leader of Libya says eyewitness accounts have all stated that it was peaceful and quiet before the attack itself.
I have to ask this, JP....even tho BO isn't YOUR prez, aren't even YOU getting sick of the lies and the coverups? And please don't give me nonsense about Bush, et al........I'm looking for a straight answer about BO.
A massive majority of the people in the USA and other 'western world' countries don't believe that. Unfortunately the LSM doesn't report the 'good' news that there are many 'over there' who actually DO like the type of life we have and want it for themselves. Unfortunately, again, many of those people, like in Syria who are fighting the Assad regime aren't getting help they need. Instead, the regime is the one getting the help from countries like Russia and Iran.
Do you remember Hillary claiming that Assad was basically a reformed dictator who could be trusted to be good to his people? Where are those videos and why aren't they being played over and over on youtube? Because it would make this Administration look like the 'you Americans are too stupid to talk to like adults' 'regime' that they are.........Assad is being left alone and ignored, just as Iran was ignored and people there were asking "Obama, are you with us or against us", while Libya and Egypt garnered NATO support during that 'Arab Spring'. Why?
Thank you for helping me prove Toni's statement incorrect.
in part because members of the U.S. Congress from both parties say they believe Assad is "a reformer."
Hillary was not alone in her thoughts?
I wonder where is Toni's outrage against the members of the Republican party that supported Assad.
Did you find basically a "reformed dictator"?
Of course when people use the word "basically", most times, it means they didn't actually use that term.
just not 'reformed' like Hillary and many in Congress believed he would be......including Republicans who aren't the 'new school' type of Republicans. In case you haven't noticed, the 'old school' Republicans and Dems are being replaced by people who aren't looking out for themselves or to keep the job, but rather ones who want to fix this country.
And Hillary isn't staying on as Secy of State after the election.......she's tired of being made a fool of by BO, and I don't blame her at all for jumping ship like the rest of his Admin as been doing. The only ones still around are the absolute die-hards who know not to give him any advice because he won't take it unless Valerie Jarrett approves first. Hillary hasn't been much of a success at the job she has anyhow......time to go when you realize that your own boss is tying your hands behind your back and having Plouff write your speeches for you like he does with Carney, poor soul.
... and don't call me Shirley.
I'm not arguing about who used what and whether it was organized. Heck, spokesmen for the Libyan government say it was planned out.
All I'm saying is that the presence of a particular weapon does not indicate a bloody thing considering the whole town is an armed camp that just got through fighting a civil war.
RPGs because the warheads are shaped charges. Best to penetrate doors, gates, and walls. Mortars are good when tou have not yer penetrated the doors,walls, you can stand back and "loft" the rounds in. They can spray a nice little cloud of shrapnel for anti-personal inside of the yet unbreached perimiter
