The U.S. helps save the Egyptian people from the tyrant Mubarak -- and then radicals attack our embassy. We help Libya free themselves of the horrific Muammar Gaddafi, and they storm our embassy and murder our diplomats. Should the US suspend aid to the countries that commit these crimes?

FOXNEWS.COM reports:
Lawmakers and other officials stepped up calls Thursday for the United States to put heavy pressure on the governments whose people are storming U.S. diplomatic posts across the Middle East and North Africa -- even if it means freezing aid and expelling diplomats from Washington.

    I'll 2nd that motion!

    They forged British passports and stole peoples identities to carry out an assasination though
  • Matt Neutron... 2012/09/14 14:32:59
    and? how would you have carried out that assasination?
  • Neutron... Matt 2012/09/14 14:36:51
    So you condone stealing innocent peoples identities and putting their lives in danger?
  • Matt Neutron... 2012/09/14 14:42:49
    did it really put their lives in danger? how?

    Do you think the assasination was a good thing?
  • Neutron... Matt 2012/09/14 14:56:34
    Well how would you feel if your identity was used to assasinate a Hamas leader, would you feel safe living in the Middle east? Of course it wasnt good they made a mockery of sovereign nations.
  • Matt Neutron... 2012/09/14 16:23:17 (edited)
    i disagree - i think it was good. The cofounder of the militant arm of Hamas deserved to die, the countries he was sneaking around in welcomed him with open arms, people need to question why china was to be his next destination... so the Israeli's once more have the balls to do what needs to be done. He is killed, egypt and jordan quietly breathe a sigh of relief and all the killers get out - mission accomplished, no innocent women or children caught in the crossfire just a precision kill.

    EDIT: if the israeli's had came to me in australia and asked to borrow my passport for a few weeks so they could kill one of hamas founders I would have cheerfully handed it over
  • Neutron... Matt 2012/09/14 20:07:24 (edited)
    They didnt ask anyone though did they? The UK should cut all ties for such an act. A precision kill? some of the people whose identities were used were just normal citizens now in hiding for fear of repercussions for the rest of their lives.
  • Matt Neutron... 2012/09/15 10:15:46 (edited)
    theyre not living in fear - the whole world knows they had nothing to do with it

    do you seriously think they are the only organisation to have done such a thing?

    yes - a precision kill, no one was caught in any crossfire or explosion, just a quiet hotel room killing...
  • yabbada... Matt 2012/09/14 19:32:39
    unless youre God you have no right to bring anyone to death for any reason whatsoever
  • Matt yabbada... 2012/09/15 10:22:45
    so as a christian, how would you explain God mandating the death penalty to those who killed others - are you saying those that carried out the punishment did not have the right to do so?...

    Romans 13.2-4 also says "For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer"
  • yabbada... Matt 2012/09/15 11:05:04
    i dont believe the bible was written by God and i dont think man wrote the bible in his words and the bible called for stoning of whores too....will be doing that? stone any whores lately?
  • Matt yabbada... 2012/09/15 11:11:55
    maybe you should take christian out of your profile then
  • yabbada... Matt 2012/09/15 17:53:03
    maybe you should go stone some whores because you know the bible says so...the real 1 anyway
  • Matt yabbada... 2012/09/16 13:59:43
    like when they hauled that women before jesus and said they had to stone her because she had been caught in the act? where he pointed out to her accusers that they were not exactly perfect them selves, then told her to go and sin no more?

    but then if you dont belive the bible is from god why would you care if it said to 'stone whores' or not?
  • yabbada... Matt 2012/09/16 18:39:43
    oh i dont care because it wasnt written by God himself but you do care and its God not god unless you believe in multiple gods and its themselves not them-selves....this conversation is over....take care
  • Matt yabbada... 2012/09/17 04:16:45
    Yeah, we should end it now, you call yourself a christian yet dont believe the bible is in any way from God (is that better?). You are obviously not a follower of Christ, who quoted extensively from the Old Testament. As for saying only God has the right to kill... I guess each country should disband their military forces and not defend themselves in case they accidently kill an attacker. Next time someone opens fire in a crowded cinema just try to run away and no one shoot back, unless they kill the attacker by mistake. Just follow him from a distance until he runs out of bullets then arrest him.
    When someone breaks into your house and starts raping and killing your daughters just politely ask them to stop...
  • yabbada... Matt 2012/09/17 04:28:02
    like i said this conversation is over
  • Matt yabbada... 2012/09/17 05:33:03
    No, no - please dont KILL the conversation....
  • Deep007 yabbada... 2012/09/14 18:51:13
    Hey idiot...Jews don't kill Americans .. Muslims DO
  • yabbada... Deep007 2012/09/14 19:41:00 (edited)
    many Israelis hate Americans, they hate Christians, and they hate black people & unless youre jewish you really arent all that welcome in the nonexistent state of Israel

    Israel and America together have killed over a million people ( more then every terrorist in the world at the moment combined) and the majority of them were not terrorists

    America is broke, the country is crumbling to the ground, and we cannot afford to support the world any longer or Israel....Netanyahu says Israel can take care of and protect itself so maybe they should start doing that for once rather then depending on America for everything like a welfare recipient
  • Deep007 yabbada... 2012/09/15 00:45:55
    Heh heh heh
    Blame Bush and Blame the JEWS...
    yeah.. typical Liberal bull Schitt
  • yabbada... Deep007 2012/09/15 01:30:28
    nothing to say to that huh clueless? get a clue dude because im not a liberal nor am i or have ever been an Obama supporter....only the stupid and common senseless support OBAM - NEY
  • brian8139 yabbada... 2012/09/17 01:13:21
    they are the only ali we have on that contanant , and obama is thowing them under the bus
  • Gregaj7 2012/09/14 01:38:53
    We should cancel all treaties, end foreign-aid, recall ALL Americans, and vacate the Mid-East immediately. Due to Rothschild control of the muni-corp "United States", this probably won't take place.
  • KilrQueen 2012/09/14 01:30:35
    I think we should suspend aid to any country that is not our friend.
  • Mark P. 2012/09/14 01:30:23
    Mark P.
    Suspend all aid and leave them to their own destruction. Its not worth the blood of 1 American.
  • Max 2012/09/14 01:29:20
    Absolutely! We are in a terrible financial situation. The Congress just quietly passed a Continuing Resolution to fund the government. The Fed just implemented QE3. Etc. etc.
  • nbarton2 2012/09/14 01:26:34 (edited)
    This should be a no brainer to the Government we need to stop supporting those who mean us harm

    To the idiots who want to blame America for this because of a video, a cartoon, or a joke to you I say wake up this has s absolutely nothing to do with those things but to do with a "religion" of intolerance of others
  • woodstock 2012/09/14 01:24:17
    The smart minded say yes. The ones with their head up their a-- say no and those that say sometimes means their head is only half way up their a--.
  • Boyosemu 2012/09/14 01:09:32
    Wait didn't an American drew a picture of Muhammad which is highly offensive to the Muslims? Wasn't that the reason why the U.S. embassy was attacked in the first place?

    Anyways, aiding a country is good but then again, if a country doesn't want us there, I think we should leave them alone.
  • Deep007 Boyosemu 2012/09/14 18:53:27
  • Boyosemu Deep007 2012/09/15 03:49:16
    But there is a film on youtube that disrespects the Muslim religion and 4 innocent Americans who had nothing to do with died. The guy that created that film won't show himself why? He know what he did. It's not just this video, it's a bigger picture than that.

    I have no honor to my country? What makes you think you have honor to your country. America is a good place i won't lie but am I proud most of the time, nope.
  • Deep007 Boyosemu 2012/09/17 15:05:08
    you live in the greatest country in the world..
    the GREATEST... people risk their and their children s LIVES to get here by any means necessary.. the freedoms you enjoy are the stuff of dreams in most places..
    and MILLIONS have died so you can have these freedoms..
    get yer head out yer ass girl... rise above the Liberal hate of your counrty
  • Boyosemu Deep007 2012/09/17 22:41:09
    Yeah I am aware of people risking their lives to come here because opportunity lies here. This isn't a perfect country, America has good things and bad flaws. I don't know about this liberal thing you're talking about but don't compare to a group of people that I am not associated with.

    I already know that America is a good place to live but I fear for the undesired people we put in our government.

    Enjoy your freedom while you can because I'm starting to see people in our government breaking the Constitution.
  • Deep007 Boyosemu 2012/09/18 06:43:13
    - I don't know about this liberal thing you're talking about but don't compare to a group of people that I am not associated with.-
    Then should EDUCATE yourself about it... and not from the socialist zombies that seek to indoctrinate you in school with their utopian BS. The battle for you mind began long ago... before you were born....with your mind..comes yer SOUL.
