And yet, on September 11th, our embassy is attacked by radical knuckle dragging Jihadist swine, and WE apologize?
A mob of protesters scaled the walls of the U.S. Embassy compound in Cairo and tore down its American flag on Tuesday, replacing it with a black flag commonly associated with Islamic terrorists.
The protesters were angered by a film that allegedly insults Muhammad, and attempted to raise a flag with the message “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger,” Reuters reports. Muhammad is the prophet of Islam.
Warning shots were fired, but no one was injured.
The Associated Press reports that no embassy personnel were inside the compound at the time. Tuesday was the eleventh anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks that killed over 3,000 Americans. (SEE ALSO: U.S. negotiating $1B aid deal with Egypt)
The name of the offending film was not mentioned, but demonstrators chanted anti-American slogans and held up shredded pieces of the American flag.
The U.S. Embassy said in a statement that it “condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.”
“Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy,” the statement read. “We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”
Oh no! Not hurt feelings! Are you kidding me? Muslims cannot take having their egos bruised? They cannot be offended without resorting to violence? Cry me a river! Tell you what, how about this, the next time any embassy of ours is attacked, we shoot dead every SOB attacking it, pull our people out, close the embassy, and leave a sign reading DO NOT MAKE US COME BACK! Instead we act like cowards? Good freaking grief!
Look, this is not complicated at all. If I offend someone, and I surely offend many every day on this blog, and they attack me physically for that offense, I do not owe them anything. Well, except for an ass whipping.
In a related post, RS McCain has a great post up about this. I think McCain AND his son, who is joining the Army, understand what I mean! And God bless a protect Bob McCain!
The other day I asked my wife where our 19-year-old son Bob was.
The answer: Hiking up a mountain with an 85-pound pack.
He recently enlisted in the Army, having scored a near-maximum on the ASVAB test, and will report to boot camp in a few months — some kind of delayed-entry deal — as an aspiring candidate for the elite Special Forces. Already a Red Cross certified lifeguard, he is so fired-up that he’s voluntarily doing PT (physical training) in advance, which is why he hiked up the mountain with an 85-pound pack.
Because he is preparing to kill our nation’s enemies.
My wife is concerned for our son’s safety. No, dear — let our nation’s enemies worry about their own safety. Because he’s coming to kill them.
Egyptian protesters scaled the walls of the U.S. embassy on Tuesday, tore down the American flag and burned it during a protest over what they said was a film being produced in the United States that insulted Prophet Mohammad. . . .
Once the U.S. flag was hauled down, some protesters tore it up and showed off pieces to television cameras. Others burned the remains outside the fortress-like embassy building in central Cairo. . . .
“This movie must be banned immediately and an apology should be made,” said 19-year-old Ismail Mahmoud, a member of the so-called “ultras” soccer supporters who played a big role in the uprising that brought down Hosni Mubarak last year.
Hey, Ismail: Do you think this flag-burning stuff is smart? You want to turn this into war? You want my son to come kill you?
I don’t know anything about this movie you and your “ultra” mob are all excited about, Ismail, but attacking a U.S. embassy isn’t the kind of thing that Americans take lightly, no matter what gutless apologies you get from the pussies at the State Department. And the same goes for that mob of violent savages in Benghazi:
Gunmen and security forces clashed at the U.S. consulate office in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Tuesday as the armed group protested over a film being produced in the United States, a security official said. . . .
“There are fierce clashes between the Libyan army and an armed militia outside the U.S. consulate,” Abdel-Monen Al-Hurr, spokesman for Libya’s Supreme Security Committee, said.
“The U.S. consulate’s security guards inside the building fired at the militia as it was trying to enter and attack it.”
See, I’ve got skin in the game, so to speak, and this is what enrages me about the folly of appeasement, which only invites such attacks.
Go read it all! I think RS McCain might agree with me that we need to fire whomever apologized, and do as Generals Stonewall Jackson or George S Patton might do
Annihilate these savages. Hunt them down and kill them, and kill any of those other vicious fanatical bastards who try to stop us.
Amen! Appeasement is a fool’s errand!
