Yachtsman, besides being an Obamatron apologist, you have absolutely no clue about international law. This WAS and IS an act of war. Why? Because the embassy property of any country within the shores of another country is considered SOVEREIGN TERRITORY. For your simple mind I will translate: That means what they did was the same as Egypt or Libya mounting an attack upon the shores of the U.S. of A. There is evidence that Libyan security forces pointed the way to the ambassador's location. Further, in Egypt, they have a well-equipped military -- by us, BTW -- which could have easily put down the insurrection. You are an idiot, yachts, there is no other way to say it.
