Another Islamist Assault, Another Western Cringe

Reader comment on item: Another Islamist Assault, Another Western Cringe

I once had a history professor who cleverly passed out a list of common excuses students make for not showing up or not completing a homework assignment. You were allowed to make copies and just check the box that applied after the fact. Oddly enough, he was such a great teacher we hardly ever needed to use the list!

One excuse is as good as another for Islamic riots to break out. Was it planned as we were heading into 9/11 on the calendar, was it the movie practically no one saw, or was it our weak and shaky presidency? Check any of the above, and add your own, as no one will remember the reason or reasons for continued bad behaviour in the future as it will be never ending.

There is no Arab Spring, just many little sandstorms. The honorable ones are being shouted out and out performed...sounds a little like home these days, just not quite so violent... yet. Take back the funding! The Islamic world needs to be on its own to find its own way, and we need a stronger leader. No one overseas is safe under this one. 2016 The Movie was amazing, and I believe very real. Enjoyed the interview with Dr. Pipes at the very end. That said it all! Our ambassador and others are killed and the "pres" goes off to a fund raiser, reads his briefing but does not show up in person. How safe are we?
