    Close the embassies. Bring everyone home. Get the fuck outta the middle east. And hurry up and come up with a solution/alternative to oil. We need a "in this decaaahd" moment from someone.

    Yeah, why the hell do we have an embassy in Yemen? Who wants to go there? The only thing that has come out of that shithole in the past decade is Islamic terrorists.

    Protesters broke through an outer perimeter protecting the embassy and set fire to a building but were forced to retreat after trying to plunder furniture and computers - Ummm isn't theft forbidden in that religion as well?

    Not theft from infidels. Since we have no rights in the first place, that property isn't actually "ours."

    Pretty sure the embassies aren't the ones digging all the oil up out of the Saudi desert.

    We need to take a hard line against the governments who aren't able to protect embassies on their soil. There are plenty of reports regarding police trying to deal (and some of them simply running away because they weren't prepared) but it's not enough. If they're not willing to provide adequate security then we're should up and leave, taking most of our support with.

    Might be a bit hard considering you can pick up an AK47 new in some of these countries for $50 and a used one for $6...

    Fucking obama didn't foresee the need for US to reinforce our embassies on the anniversary of 9/11. He was busy. Michelle Malkin speaks for me on this whole embarrassing debacle...

    The police should have them too. It's not unreasonable to demand protection if you're not going control your apes.



    To be fair, it's not a 9/11 related event. There probably wasn't any much to suggest any reprisal attacks. That said, there's no reason why embassies in that part of the world aren't better protected in the first place.

    Dead on. If our government had any balls we'd start significantly cutting aid (which is too much already) to these countries.

    I blame the State Department for not allowing our Marines to have ammo.

    No ammo makes it next to impossible to stop evildoers.

    Typical opinionated uninformed lib. They're 'our' security, in that we contract security personnel to provide security. But i agree on the second part that we should stop playing british empire jr.

    You do realize that embassies have they're own security and the host nation does not have to ensure it's security right? It's like if i parked my car at hourly rate parking lot in compton. Is it the responsibility of compton if my shit gets stolen? You go anywhere at your own risk. Let's blame governments and individuals for us being dumb enough to park our shit in hostile areas. Brilliant.

    Embassies are a tad more important for the host nation than your Corolla is to the government. The analogy you make is pretty silly.

    You do realize that I'm talking about the police forces whom are the first line of defense for embassies? Even an opinionated uninformed lib such as yourself should've been able to pick that up pretty easily.
