Is It Just Me?

Is it just me, or did I miss something along the line? Islamists storm our embassy in Cairo and then murder our envoy in Libya. I’m stunned and left wondering why!

Why did we not protect our sovereignty and fire on anyone and everyone trying to breech the walls of the Cairo embassy?

Why did we not have a platoon of Marines in Libya to protect our interests there? After all, Libya is hardly a stable country.

Why was our envoy to Libya tasked with trying to rescue the consulate in Benghazi, at great risk to his own life? Do we not have paramilitary personnel to do that?

This whole thing is absurd! Some independent film maker decides to produce a parody of the life of Mohammed and his relationship with Allah. Big deal! This kind of stuff happens all the time in this country. It’s what we call free speech.

No, I would not attend the movie if it ever made it to fruition. Yes, I watched about half the trailer and quit watching because it was so amateurish and, well, bad!

But because of this people riot in the Middle East and kill one of our diplomats?

I call bullshit!

This was another manufactured outrage over something that means nothing. Some film maker mocks Islam? Does this really qualify as something that anyone needs to even talk about?

Our talking about it elevated it to a level that it did not deserve. Apologizing for it elevated the United States to the realm of pussies and that fact was not lost on every Islamist in the Middle East.

Romney was right on this one. The administration’s response was outrageous!

Good Lord, November 6th can’t come soon enough!
