Here we go again

U.S. embassies in Egypt and Libya were attacked today. A U.S. official was killed at the consulate in Benghazi. Protesters scaled the wall of the Cairo embassy and tore down an American flag. Our embassy in Egypt issued a crawling statement about not hurting Muslims' feelings.

To hell with Muslims' feelings. Attacking a U.S. embassy is an act of war. Mobs should be met with bullets, not statements of sympathy. Not that I want to inflict pain or death upon people in a wanton fashion, but the only thing some people understand is that these people in this building can be attacked with impunity; whereas those people in that building are not to be messed with, because they'll fight back. And I want us to be those people.

In other news, President Obama snubbed Prime Minister Netanyahu today. Again.
