embassy/consulate..................things have certainly changed now..........no ground is safe ground............
please correct me if im wrong.
but isnt a US embassy on foreign soil, considered US Soil inside the confines?
same with german, british, heck, any embassy?
i think at a minimum leaders of those countries owe it to the countries whose embassies were attacked, where people were murdered, the blood of the
MINIMUM, or it should be considered an act of war. if they dont give up the killers, the leaders should be considered accomplices to the murder of
As I understand it, there is an international agreement for the status of embassies to be protected as though they are sovereign soil. Basically, any

I hate to sound so condescending, but if these religious crazies want to act like petulant children throwing a hissy fit, stick them on the naughty
step, take away their toys, explain to them why their behavior is pathetic, and let them think about that for a while!
