    When you cannot pay for your own country then you should not give aid to other countries.

    until women's rights are restored and militia's that include foreign fighters roam the streets armed we should give food aid only.

    Here is a convenient formula: Add together the damage costs: material, extra personnel for security, and any direct personal injury costs; then add a reasonable (by current US Courts Tort evaluation) payment to the beneficiaries of the deceased. Multiply that sum by an ES (Embassy security) factor, say x10.

    Reduce the foreign aid budget to that country by that amount this year, and by half that amount again next year. Pay the beneficiaries twice their normal claims (~20%), post ~10% "For a Reward Leading to..." and put the rest (~70%) into a military slush fund for Special Forces, with a directive to eliminate the culprits.

    Then alert the media that the next time it happens, anywhere in the world, the multiplier ES factor goes to x20. If they can't police their own people... with OUR money..., then We should be able to help them, don't you think?

    NO!! but then I suppose if we told Israel to get over it, we would be demonised Russia lost far more and resolved their pain internally, to support Egypt and Libya in their struggle is all we did for Israel who continue to deny others their right to a country

    This was a act of terrorism in Libya,Egypt might be a different matter if there government condoned it.

    You ought to be ashamed of yourself for spinning the facts into this claim you just made. All Administrations make deals with undesirable enemies. Reagan had Osama bin Laden and Noriega. You ever heard of the term Realpolitik?

    I'm willing to go along if a case can be made. If we are getting a benefit, let's keep funding. Fair enough?

    Having said that, I want someone to show me the benefits... no matter how tacky or non-diplomatic that might be. And if you can't put the deal on the table, and if the deal doesn't make sense - we should stop funding, wipe our feet, and get the heck out of there. That's my feeling today. It could change depending on what goes down tomorrow or the next day.

    Why fund our enemies. I know, I know; Obama says that they are 'friends." I guess neither they nor he saw the episode of Yo Gabba Gabba with Jack Black teaching, "Don't Bite Your Friends." We should cut them off completely. Their actions were totally unjustified and have caused a chain reaction in Muslim countries.

    Actually, we ought to cut it off entirely.

    And we should not be sending them "emergency food" when they are starving.

    It's not a question of whether or not the film was made the fact is it was but this is not the reason for the rioting in the streets of the middle east. Even the Libyan president said as much. This is an all out push by the radical muslims to create disorder and distrust.

    look who calls radical islam our ally.

    This is a push by our own president who forced us all to pay for it with out tax dollars .

    Yes we should decrease our beneficence to countries that use our money to do harm to us! Doesn't it appear that Middle Easterners are able and willing to riot when given just minutes notice? It took years of planning to get together the Million Man March! Most of us have jobs and consider 'demonstrations and rioting' secondary to keeping ourselves on track financially.

    When our ambassador was killed, we didn't burn down the Egyptian Embassy!

    This terrorist situation is NOT going to improve!! It will never improve. It can't improve!! And if you think it can, could you explain how that could happen?

    If the US had kept its NATO nose out of Libya none of this would have happened. The ones who did the killings were trained and left in charge by America and NATO. Libya was a rich country until the goons stepped in.

    forget it. Use your own money and your own lives to get rid of the heavy evil yoke of slavery from around your necks.

    May God bless Libyans with the sense to see that God is not stupid and does not need silly stupid slaves who love to murder non moslems who refuse to be slaves to a god made up by superstitious people who love lies and death and murder and men and caliphates and religions , instead of the real God.

    NO money for murderers and idots and imbeciles and liars

    It is gross of you to say this to Americans who have done more for arab nations than any other nation ever in the history of mankind freely out of love for freedom but because they hoped islam would one day decide it could be for God completely instead of for Mohamed , just another greedy man .

    God is not a slaver. MAN is. Islam adores , worships , believes in slavery. Mohamed was just a man.
