Bang goes their tourism industry - what's left of it. And millions of local people will suffer further - Egypt is already suffering.
And in Regents Park today I heard a mob near the US Ambassador's residence.
If every time there was histrionics by Westeners on streets in America and other countries every time there was anti-Western propaganda in these countries then it would be 24 hours a day!
The irony is, most people had never heard of or would see, or support this film, until all of this. Over reactions or what!
The irony is, if you offered them all an American passport they'd snatch it out of your hand in an instant!
you're fond of "the irony is" as a little catchphrase, aren't you? and i have no idea why you'd think they'd all snatch an american passport if they could. anyway, is it any surprise that people in certain places react with anti-american anger given the actions from the usa in recent times? of course not.
That part of the world is really getting on my nerves.
They should just stop taking religion so seriously. They would not be offended every 5 minutes.

disregarding the rest of your post (especially the china bit) this is pretty important stuff. america's rhetoric and actions have been perceived to be (and in some cases have clearly been) anti-muslim. its natural that a large number of people in these places loathe america.
as far as my own views, i think that it is quite obvious that certain muslims in certain countries are far too touchy over the subject of religion, and i believe that everything should be open to criticism and ridicule. however, it has been the case in fairly recent times in the "civilised west" that people who criticised christianity were threatened, ostracised and the like.
