The attackers of our embassy were neither a protest that"got out of hand" or a bunch of strollers that that had one say, "hey guys, watch this". It was a deliberate armed attack, meant to accomplish. . just what it did. We, that is, the American Government, ENCOURAGED this to happen by showing, time and time again, that we we tolerate intolerance. If a predator in the wild sees an animal common to its regular diet, shows behavior that lets the predator sense it has a meal today, it attacks. Sorry if thats not pretty or civioized, but it IS true.
