Killing an ambassador is an act of war.
Only if you want it to be.
Realistically, lets say its been declared an act of war. What exactly would you have the US military do? Occupy the area? Occupy the streets? send in
some jets and bomb the hell out of some apartment complex.. or factory?
Everyone's so certain Obama messed up.. If you ask me? considering the scale and ease to which they ransacked the place, considering the recent
hornets nest like revolutions in the middle east, the US could have easily lost a few more ciahideouts/consulates in Egypt, Lebanon.. Syria?
And think about this, how much planning has to go into half a dozen guys, picking up their automatic weapons, jumping into a jeep and driving over.
Yes, they might be somewhere affiliated to one of the thousands of terrorist groups in libya/egypt.. but on the ground they are just men with ak's and
rpgs like every other group!
This was not a terrorist attack in the original sense!
Obama doing nothing, and receiving strong promises from the local government to ensure similar acts dont occur, sounds like a good end to a bad
situation, when you think of the big picture...
So Pratraeus stands in front of congress and gives his 2 cents... what then? its obviously going to be positive and defend Obamas management of the
situation, so I wouldn't expect shock revelations!
Maybe this is his punishment? Someone promised him his title and proceeds like he earned, if he agreed to stand there and say a few lines...
