I wonder if this post will be moved to social issues forum like the other thread?


If anything is political, this is, in my opinion. As these attacks are going to play a factor in this election year.

....as many as it takes to justify going to war (IMHO). I'm just waiting for the protests to begin on our soil.

The whole situation makes me sick...

What sickens me about all of this...

Our President should be in the WH at this moment taking in all of the information he can about the situation and using our assets to get our people out of harm's way in the quickest way possible...

And YET, he was busy fundraising last night! Really???? He is supposed to be our LEADER, the lives of Americans are at stake and his priority is campaign finances... I'm appalled.

There's nothing left to say.

PS: Hope the British and German embassy personnel are safely evacuated as well.

I agree, and I have said that for a long time. But, from what I can see, that is not going to happen.

Sad really.

I completely agree,American lives are at stake..it's time for Obama to grow a pair and do his job,get in front of the camera's and do his thing instead of whimpering in the closet because his beliefs may be compromised.

Millions of Amercans are asking "what the heck is Tunisia"


Protesters in the various countries are also attacking western restaurants like KFC( aka Kentucky Fried Chicken) and embassies in other countries. Germany's embassy in Sudan is on fire and protesters are outside the UK embassy in Sudan.

It is kind of scary, but in reality, these attacks could have been defended. Maybe not the first one, but after that, we should have ramped up security ten fold to all other ally, especially American, embassies. I dont understand it. Its like were inviting the attacks.
Terrorist #1: "Wait, they're really not putting up more security?"
Terrorist #2: "I guess not...well, # it then....charge!!!!"

What did fried chicken do to these people? Fried chicken ain't racist.

Sorry. Was reminded of a scene in Clerks 2.

On a more serious note, I'd like to know what Tunisians have against the U.S Embassy there?

I totally agree that the US (along with the other countries) should have immediately set up safeguards to prevent further *successful* attacks against their people.

It is about time, maybe we can emerge from the nuclear winter a wiser people that realizes the fallacy of ANY organized religion. More people on this planet have died from idiotic religious nuts than any other cause throughout history.

Its a reason to basically get free food and possibly break the cash register by some local thugs who couldn't care less about politics or religion
Just like the riots in LA during the Rodney King fiasco.
