Re: Anti-American anger sweeps Muslim world

Obama being president being elected automatically lead to an improvement in relations with many countries because he thinks before he speaks and does not have an idiot for a Secretary of State. Muslim is a religious choice not hereditary, are you too stupid to know that

The "they hate us because we're powerful" viewpoint is one of the most ignorant cliches around. Laughable in fact. It's a viewpoint adopted only by those whose degree of nationalism results in a "head up their ass" effect where they are not able to look at their nation with any objective.
Obviously they were hated for how they used their power and America is too. Without us having that power would anyone care? America will use its power for its own interests and people will love/hate us based on how our decisions impact them.

It really is funny that countries like France whose wartime flag is a white cross on a white background disparage us.


America isn't hated because it's powerful, it's hated because of how it uses it's power. Israel a country that likes America?? Try "Israel owes it's existance to America", and U.S. biased unconditial support to it.

Okay. Yes. I agree with most of that. But "obviously"? No. What you state here is both more accurate and very different from the concept of "hating America because it's powerful."

"America will use its power for its own interests" Perhaps. To me that's not so. Like most nations/empires, American power is used by a relative few who manipulate for their interests. Some of those few may think that parts of their agenda are for the good of all Americans.

"us"? Again I'll go with perhaps. Many people get that many in the USA do not support and often don't even know many of the shenanigans those in power carry out.

So ignorant and delusional

On the other hand, what a bunch of morons. Destroying their own streets, property, hurting innocent people etc., but it's clear the movie isn't the real motive behind that. I am really surprised to see situation in Tunisia getting out of control.

And just for the record, (violent) demonstrations were not held in all Muslim countries.

The country is full of weapons, the central government is weak, and it's a tribal society in the first place. Somebody who wants the Americans out just made their move. A move. There will be more.

My vote is we find out who financed and organized this, and 'extraordinary render' their fat ass back here, and have a very public trial. And if they give up every goddamn one of their cronies, they live. At Gitmo, on bread and water, but they live.

You take a bunch of people out of an autocracy (or multiple autocracies) into a situation where there's weak, if any central force, and you get anarchy. For a while. Then things sort themselves out. Hopefully NOT into another autocracy.

Religious extremists. The psychos who says God want them to murder the unbelievers. Every insult to God much be avenged. As if God, if there is one, couldn't take care of vengeance just fine.
Agree with everything you said here.

Only such dumb statements can come from LisickiFan or whatever the hell its username is. I guess you're not at all interested in the images posted by miffedmax and Volcana as the protesters don't subscribe to this "message" of yours. The sooner you realise that Bin Laden and his puppets are not representative of the majority of Muslims, the better for them and you.

The guy behind this film is a selfish and disgusting asshole especially that he went on with it despite knowing the possible chaos it would cause. He's got blood on his hands and is as much guilty of the murders.

Re: Anti-American anger sweeps Muslim world

Muslims, in general, have always been overly sensitive about their religion. Well religious people in general are overly sensitive but right now Muslims seem to be the most.

As an athiest i never take the mick out of religions i rather a logical debate show how silly they are really.

Re: Anti-American anger sweeps Muslim world

Nobody here saw that movie, nobody there saw that movie.

Just a mention of an anti Mohammed video and protest start.

Seriously all some of these people need is a twig and they start a fire.

Exactly.

All the US government does is meddle. If there is so much anti-American hatred in these countries GTFO.

Oh yeah, if they did that they couldn't pillage all their natural resourses and give a lot of $$$ making building contracts to US construction companies

I feel sorry for most Americans, believing all the lies.

The rest of the world is not an episode of Laguna Beach.

The least that can happen in these lands is free teeth whitening and Abercrombie and Fitch stores for all
