I agree with Ezra

- September 13th, 2012

Can we please stop referring to the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other U.S. diplomats as a tragedy, please? A tragedy is when a mudslide hits your neighbourhood. What happened in Libya (and Egypt, and now elsewhere as well) was a deliberate, planned terrorist attack against the United States of America.

    Civilized people around the world denounce the evildoers who devised and executed these terrible attacks. Justice demands that those who helped or harbored the terrorists be punished — and punished severely. The enormity of their evil demands it. We will use all the resources of the United States and our cooperating friends and allies to pursue those responsible for this evil, until justice is done.

  2. Tiercellus says:

    I have to agree here. The riots and subsequent murders were acts of terrorism (or at best, mindless violence) that deserve the appropriate consequence. There needs to be accountability for those who executed them, and that accountability should track rigth back to the makers of the film that served as the trigger.

    The film itself is not an excuse for this horrid behaviour, but the reaction it evoked was entirely predictable. The rigth to free speech ends when that free speech directly or indirectly leads to harm such as this, to others.
