Well, if we wanted to not simply give the impression of being weak but remove all doubt to the world? This does that very effectively.
US Embassies have been under some level of threat since the 1960's when terrorism properly came into being with the '68 hijacking of an Airliner by
the PLO. They were blown up entirely a couple times in the 80's and 90's. Yet Reagan, Bush and Clinton did not deem the display of outright FEAR to be
a productive response to terrorist threat. Nor have many, IF ANY other major world powers outside of active or soon to be active war zones.
When we start shutting down full Embassies out of fear, like children hiding under the covers? We might as well close up shop around the world.
Everyone now knows it's not a question of IF the US will turn tail and run. It's only a question of what circumstances need to be created so it's the
EASIER option left open.
I swear...South America as a place to spend my final decade or two is starting to look better and better. The only thing worse for Americans than a
rogue nation, running across the world shooting people is a WEAK one with as much to take and plunder as we have. ...Of course, no one cares right
now. It's about politics. We're SO screwed.
