It began with Libya, when the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were murdered. Now the contagion spreads. A Drudge headline reads ‘Full-Blown Crisis.’
Two American universities have been closed due to bomb threats, and a nuclear reactor has been evacuated in Austin, Texas. Protests against the U.S. are now going on in London, Tunisia, Sudan, Cairo, and Lebanon. What embassy will be next?
Other headlines today state that the U.S. government was warned in advance of the killings at the embassy in Libya, but did absolutely nothing to stop it. Does that mean that it was a false flag event that was staged by the U.S. or purposely allowed to happen, or was it just blowback from the fact that the U.S. just recently murdered the official leader of Libya? I do not know the answer, but both of these scenarios are unacceptable.
I wonder if the worm is finally turning, and those in the Middle East who have been continually brutalized, displaced, maimed, economically destroyed, tortured, and had there family members murdered by the U.S. and its military, have said enough is enough. Certainly, killing American diplomats overseas is not the answer, and that kind of immoral and criminal behavior will only serve to bring down on these people more wrath from the U.S. killing machine. Fighting back against the aggressive American invading forces is one thing, but killing innocents in embassies will only bring more death and destruction to the region.
Should these retaliations continue, and should more violence occur, all hell could break loose. The United States government is continually looking for any excuse to prosecute more war, even if they have to provide that excuse themselves. Regardless of who is responsible for the murders in Libya, and the current protests all over the Middle East, any violence against the innocent should immediately cease.
I hope that in this case, the turmoil subsides quickly, for that is the only thing that will keep the marauding hoards of American soldiers from invading even more countries in that region! But then, what countries in the Middle East are left that have not been interfered with, threatened, or brutalized by the U.S. empire?
