A statement from Mitt Romney’s campaign said: If Romney were president, this wouldn’t have happened.
Please explain – would film not have been made? Supression of freedom of speech.
Muslims not angered over insult to Mohammed? Suppression of freedom of religion.
Embassies in these countries? Maybe they should all be closed. If embassies closed, we have no feet on the ground to help non-radical Muslims.
But maybe it would be a good idea to close all embassies and America schools, and let them all make their own way. Then we would really lose our intelligence of military actions.
The problem here is Israel is right in the middle of these Muslim countries, and has not only Jewish people, but Muslims and christians.
At the present time, mob rule is in effect in Northern Africa, the Middle East, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh, and the Muslim countries in Southern Asia.
At least President Morsi of Egypt has shown his support for the US.
The mobs need to be controlled to the extent that they are kept from destroying whole cities – kept in a controlled area until common sense takes back their minds.
The most radical will never be quietened until they have destroyed themselves – karma will out. But there are people who often get caught up in the mobs who would not ordinarily be involved, but who have been taken in the heat of the moment.
Anyway, it is important to remember that all of what has happened was because of a short film posted on YouTube, which was the work of one person, who, despite his/her right to make it, should have been wise enough to know what s/he would stir up (and may have done it exactly for that very reason), and should be held accountable.
Stupidity should never be excused – we should all be willing to be held accountable for our actions.
