US Ambassador and 3 Staffers Killed in Benghazi, Libya
As the Muslim world, once again, goes mad over a perceived insult the violence against American interests gets ramped up. An attack on the US Embassy in Libya has left the Ambassador J. Christian Stevens and 3 other staffers dead.
While this is tragic, it does behove us to note the timing of the attacks in Libya and Egypt as well as the response of the Obama administration. It's a story that we've seen before, in Iran of 70s, for instance. The population is getting more and more radicalized and the US just wants to talk it out and apologize for its citizens exercising their Constitutional rights.
The question is, what do you think the correct response of the US Government should be to both attacks?
I'm of the opinion that for starters all material aid to Libya and Egypt should be cut off. That includes the favored trading status that Egypt has since the days of Camp David. Obviously, the perpetrators should be hunted down and prosecuted to extent possible. I would even go as far as to eject the Egyptian and Libyan ambassadors to the US, until such a time that the safety of diplomatic personnel can be guaranteed.
Have at it.
