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 like when people brag about the idea that, this nation was built on Christian values, and purpose that those values should be upheld.. Yet.. 'Ya, screw Human beings whom live in any other nation. I don't care if one million Africans starve to death, each year - There are four homeless people in my County.'

    Christian morals? My ass. Atheist Liberals are more morally-Christian than Christian Conservatives.

    I say Yes, temporarily. So they can see how much they really need aid from the US. Oh wait then they'll accuse us of abandoning them. Hench why they hate the US so much.

    They're going to hate us whether we try to bribe their cooperation or not. Our beliefs are anathema to them. They see us as the Great Satan, not because we love freedom, but because we embrace and export sin. That's why it's so ironic that Liberals push so hard for the 'rights' of Muslims. If we ever fall under Sharia Law, it's Liberal Democrats who will suffer the most. Gays will be killed. Abortion mills will be closed. Sex outside of marriage will be punished with death. And much, much more.

    Other countries have an obligation to defend our embassy grounds from their own people just as we defend their embassys here, if they do not we should withdraw our staff and close our embassy there as well as ending all aid.

    In addition going fruther we should end all aid to any other country as well no matter what the purpose of that aid.

    How about just stop all aid right now. We are trillion in debt... did you forget? Everything is falling apart in our own country while we send all we have overseas. Stop aid to everyone. Let them stand and/or fall on their own.

    An attack upon an embassy we have in another country is the same as an attack on us . If any country cannot abide by our peace regimes , they should not be supported by us.

    I'd have to say yes. Even though the film that provoke these killings were insulting to the Muslim world, those 4 Americans did not deserve to die. So yes cut the fund for a while and let them feel wait they've done.

    Charity begins at home. Let's concentrate our efforts and $$$$$ on aide to our citizens, the legal citizens who live here and our friends around the world, the few that we can count on.

    If we let a small group of extremists who attack us determine our efforts to provide aid to other countries...how could we possibly give terrorists MORE power? If we abandon aid to countries where a section of the country attacks us (And in terrorism, the actions of a few dozen can end up speaking on behalf of millions of individuals), all we are doing is telling terrorists that they can control what we do.

    We should not let terrorism decide what path we should take. We should let our values tempered by reason decide. I do not want to see the day where our aid can help bring forth long term-sustainable change, and a couple of extremists who don't want that change know that they can just attack us, and we will abandon there enemies, making them weak and pliable. Countries arn't made up of one giant hive mind

    "We help Libya free themselves of the horrific Muammar Gaddafi, and they storm our embassy and murder our diplomats."


    No. The attackers weren't even Libyan, and even if they were, 3/4 of Libyans want America's help. Libya is the most pro-American country in the Arab World, so cutting off aid would be stupid.

    All of you who voted YES are playing into al Qaeda's hands. Al Qaeda knows Americans are narrowminded, un-educated, and ignorant; so they al Qaeda will take advantage of our dumb citizens. I think Basseley Nakoula made this film just to ruin our alliance with Egypt, and Libya, WHICH WOULD DRIVE AMERICA OUT OF THE MIDDLE EAST!
