#1 I think it would be a nice idea to have a switch that would run a small current between the bars of gates surrounding an embassy. Not enough for an obvious shock. But, if you grabbed two of the bars, the current would run between your hands, through your heart. Just enough to cause defibrilization. Less than half an amp, I think is all that is needed.

Figure that you could give three heart attacks an hour without the crowd catching on. But if the demo lasts a long time, you will really start culling its most violent participants.

#2 Is it time to formally remind Muslim governments that allowing attacks on foreign embassies constitutes an act of war? And follow on by removing all non-essential personnel and family members, to underline the point?

#3 Technically, you would be causing fibrillation, and I gather it can be done with as little as 20mA.

#4 A public newspaper in Denmark publishes cartoons in the Fall. Islam attacks US embassies in Febuary. What am I missing? The fact that these are contrived and formented events by islamic retards being led by their noses because the Prophet Muhammad tells them not to think for themselves?

The tipping point has been reached. Time to bring the Parallel islamic Universe sucking in upon it's self like an encounter with a black hole.

#5 Unfortunately Carter created the precident that embassies can be attacked without any repercussions whatsoever a long time ago.

It may take some serious action before we reverse that....

#6 A Danish writer (author of the "We are being pissed upon" column) addresses the president of Indonesia on his blog:

You complain, mr. President - with no small justification - about the Islamophobia of The West. In connection with that, some have complained of a drawing of Muhammed with a bomblike turban as being the most offensive. Very well, what do you think hurts Islam the most? The cartoon or this: that millions of viewers watch crazed and savage madmen decapitate their victims with knives or slaughter thousands of innocents, Moslems included, from New York to Iraq and Bali?

Respectfully, mr. President, these killings and threats are of little use. If you say we can’t show the likeness, or alleged likeness, of Muhammed in Denmark, I say: our rights are not up for discussion. Moslem repressions will not be accepted as the basis for diminishing the foundations of Western Democracy


We need more such voices.

#7 The proper way to defend Embassies is with flamethrowers and gatling guns. Be sure to let it be known that the napalm is mixed with pig fat too, just in case.

I'm sick of this kind of crap. It's past time those attacking the US in any fashion start paying a price for it.

#8 Correction, that article ran in the Jyllands-Posten paper, not just on his blog. Gutsy.

#9 I want smoke and sparks along with smoking dead when they attack our embassies. No more hostages, no more sacking. Defend as if you mean it, and have troops stand by. If the host gov't kleptocrat officials won't allow reinforcement troop overflights, tell them we will bomb their personal possessions, THEN the capitol

#10 Note that this was an "attempted" overrun. In afganistan there was an "attempted" overrun of an american base here also (numerous people shot). These guys will quickly figure out the american targets are hardened and ready and will go back to the softer European embassies.

#11 Patrick, not the point. They should not have attacked ANY embassy.

Of course, if the host govt's can't/won't maintain security around embassies, it simply can be interpreted they don't want them there. Pull out the staff, then investments and co-operative ventures. It's time anyway that some jobs return back home.

They apparently want to go back to 7th century, let's give them a hand.

#12 Pull the embassy, cut off funding, call in any loans. The announcement of this should include the explanation that "if you cannot prevent acts of war, we will be forced to interpret that as your official policy".

Fuck 'em.

#13 Oh, and maybe, just maybe, if we make the penalties for tolerating Islamist bullshit high enough, then the moderates will make their appearance.

#14 Muslims Assault U.S. Embassy in Indonesia

These people really do have short memories, don't they?

The next time a natural disaster befalls Indonesia, send no help, offer no assistance. Unlike them, we DO remember how we've been treated....

#15 These people really do have short memories, don't they?

I suspect they don't consider tsunami relief as charity and assistance, but rather as their rightful due.
