In the president’s scripted, unemotional and deadpan condemnation of these deaths and destruction, I saw nothing to indicate a reprisal by our country against these worthless, ragamuffin butchers on their latest trumped-up jihad of slaughter and destruction.

It always seems to work out that way. They kill our ambassador and three members of our consulate staff, and they don’t get as much as a scratch.

Where were the Marines when all of this mayhem, murder and destruction of U.S. property occurred? Were there any contracted security forces in place at our embassies or consulates to protect our people? Why aren’t there any dead or wounded Islamic terrorists in the streets or on the walls of our sovereign locations?

In the president’s scripted, unemotional and deadpan condemnation of these deaths and destruction, I saw nothing to indicate a reprisal by our country against these worthless, ragamuffin butchers on their latest trumped-up jihad of slaughter and destruction.

They wanted and got our support during the Arab Spring, they get our money and aid, and now they want our blood — and they always succeed in getting all they want. So what about us? Under this president and his administration of sheep, we must look to Congress and demand that we move with force against them and let them feel our fury.

Our fearless leader did, after all, place two destroyers into position off the coast of Libya — oooh, they better watch out! He may use more ships off the coasts of Egypt and now Yemen, Iraq and others, oooh! You can bet that the crews are under his strict orders to do NOTHING!

I say bull-puckies! Here is my line of action that will make Washington play the part of the “chicken little” once again. Cancel every damn dime of foreign aid to all these countries immediately. Move to extract every American citizen from all reactionary countries in the Middle East, and place them all on a no-fly list.

Next, forcefully return every national from these countries who are currently in the United States for whatever reason, or arrest and deport those who refuse to leave peacefully and immediately.

That’s just a start, as we can follow up with seizing all the assets of those sand-dune wastelands and placing stiff economic sanctions to cripple and collapse their economies.

When they turn over the murderers and leaders of the demonstrations, we will consider easing these restraints. We will do so slowly, as long as each country toes the line in how they trust us and treat us in all aspects. Get tough, America, and realize that they are not our equal — militarily, socially, politically or in religious equality.
