#1 Nice to know B-HO is on our side this time. Of course, he always did talk a good game.

#2 "Stand fast"? How about "Bomb into stone age" every place where police didn't fire on protesters?

#3 I have seen reports that many of the protesters are chanting "Death to Obama - We are all Osama now". With the narcissist in chief being personally attacked, the gloves will come off. Somehow i don't think that he takes rejection very well.

#5 After all, Obama was the one who - single-handedly - arranged for and executed the assassination of his counterpart: The Mooslimb One.

#6 There's not a heck of a lot he can otherwise, can he?

#7 Stand fast means hold on and not do anything, hoping not to get swept away.

#8 Now is not the time to stand fast. Standing fast is the same as frozen in fear. He is that guy frozen, not knowing what to do, while the fight goes on all around him. There are some great and heroic Americans ready to defend America's honor. Turn them loose.
In other news the Justice department is going after the guy who produced the video.

#9 ...you mean Mr. Dronekiller?
This is pretty much their version of the same concept with manpower doing with what we do with technology. Embassies don't have the mobility that their targeted agents have. Makes the intel gathering and tracking a lot easier. Even more easy when one has sympathetic agents in the local government. Of course, the idiots at State think its all a grand game, till it bites them hard on the a**.

#10 We're STILL not playing "strong horse", so we'll keep getting kicked around. My solution to the current situation is to ARCLIGHT the he$$ out of Cairo and Alexandria (with the carriers of the 6th fleet taking out the air defenses so nothing interrupts the lesson), then nuke the Aswan High Dam with the biggest, dirtiest nuke in our arsenal. Egypt will be uninhabitable for 100 years, at minimum. At the same time, tell Israel we'll sit back and watch as they wipe out all Islamists in Gaza and the Sinai, and give control of the Suez Canal to them. Also tell the UNIFIL crowd they need to evacuate post haste while Israel constructs a nuclear "Hezbollah-free" zone from just north of its borders to just north of Beirut, and all of the Bekaa Valley. THAT would be a lesson the Islamists could understand. Nothing else is going to get past the "Islam will win" filter they possess. Stacking dead bodies 20-high has a way of affecting one's memory, especially if they fear they could be added to the pile any minute. I am beginning to hate anyone even remotely Arab, and I'm fast adding Persians, Afghanis and Pakistanis to the list.
