Like any other patriotic American, the attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya, which left four diplomats dead (including the U.S. Ambassador himself) shocked, horrified, and angered me. When we later learned that the attacks were in protest of a small-budget, “indie” anti-Muslim movie, which depicts Mohamed the Prophet as a womanizing misogynist prone to irrational violence (sounds like a pretty damn accurate portrayal of Islam to me), I was even more outraged.
This morning I woke up to news reports that U.S. embassies in Egypt and Yemen have underwent similar attacks, albeit without any losses in life, thankfully. Evidently, Muslim protestors in these countries believe the best way to protest this unfair depiction of their faith as barbaric and violent is to savagely attack the diplomatic corps of a foreign country. If you just blew a logic fuse trying to understand that rationalization, don’t feel alone. Trying to contest the fact that your religion isn’t violent with violence is fucking retarded to say the least, but leave it to these savages to operate that way.
President Obama has promised that the LIbyan murderers will be found and held responsible. But as we should all know from experience (Apology Tour), Obama lacks any sort of spine and would rather these deaths go unpunished than take any meaningful action. There have been calls in the U.S. Congress this morning that we should strip all foreign aid to Egypt, Yemen, and Libya. These measures fall far too short of the proper and moral thing to do. An attack on our foreign embassy should be regarded as nothing less than a declaration of war, and should be responded to as such.
We need to level these countries to a parking lot. Use thermobaric weapons, of course, so as to avoid leaving nuclear fallout on prime oil reservoirs. But it’s growing increasingly clear that this region of the world is in desperate need of extermination of its indigenous people and recolonization by civilized peoples. Nation-building is clearly a failure, as evidenced by our decade-long war in Afghanistan and nearly that many years in Iraq.
If genocide isn’t your cup of tea, then at least drill more oil domestically and rape Latin America for it. We need to either isolate or destroy the Middle East. We cannot co-exist with such vermin.
