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.

    In fact, let's STOP the aid altogether. People who bomb our embassies don't deserve any aide at all. Let's wake up people.

    I did NOT mean to click "yes" ... My answer is "sometimes" (I cannot change my click now.)

    The "countries" are not what's attacking embassies, so the question is invalid as it is asked. Absinthe Drinker states my opinion perfectly:

    "It should probably be contingent on the actions of that countries government after the fact.

    "If they follow up, investigate, find the ring leaders and punish them, I would say that is a relation worth saving.

    "The United States does not wish to loose strategic relations either. A rival nation might move in after the fact and reap more benefits from the relation than we could. We have not laid down all the groundwork for that to happen."

    well, picking "sometimes" seemed fair.
    BUT:
    If KSA produced a movie that's extremely odious and insulting and offending and DEGRADING of 'someone', say ABRAHAM LINCOLN OR JESUS CHRIST (PBUH)(and they would never)! Or someone revered, someone that SHAPED SOCIETY- That important. Someone pious, good, good in all sense. Someone (to me and to all us muslims) like Mohammed (PBUH).

    what would the american people say or do or what would the christians of the world say or do? Unfortunately i think religions, other than Islam, are somewhat lenient when it comes to people insulting their beliefs.I think...there was once a video about Jesus Christ... an insulting one. I think Christians were really upset (As they have every right to be).

    now, I'm not saying:
    KILL THEM! - ALL OF THOSE NON-MUSLIM PEOPLE IN THE EMBASSIES 'CAUSE THEY ARE...? THAT'S RIGHT: AMERICANS! AND THE MOVIE WAS AMERICAN - no 7abeebee, those are PEOPLE you are killing. Lives you are ending. YOU can't END someone's LIFE. UNDERSTAND THAT.
    It's NOT up to YOU, because YOU are not Allah (SWT); the people in the embassy, did they produce the movie? direct it? sponsor it? watch its trailer on TV? EAT Cereal in the morning? Have two kids? a wife? Parents? friends?
    YOU don't know any of those answers!
    Still, you BARGE in...

    Still, you BARGE in there and start firing?!
    What would Mohammed (PBUH) have done? hmmmm? FOLLOW him and his creed, THEN defend him please.
    And the dumb thing is, THEY'RE NOT KILLING OR HARMING THE MOVIE PRODUCER OR THE ACTOR OR THE (really nasty- i hate you SO much) SCRIP WRITER? THEY ARE MURDERING INNOCENT PEOPLE!? Yes, trashing american embassies is symbolic of our rejection and hatred, but what about the people? No one had to die or yet has to die?

    YES, it WAS very, very, INFINITESIMALLY offending and angering and revolting and despicable and disrespectful and all-the-nasty-words-in-the-di... yes, that's true BUT ... you're going to KILL people who played NO PART in making that nauseating movie and say it's right? No, i don't agree with you.

    Now, to America, YOUR record in history isn't exactly SLATE-CLEAN, you know. Oh yes, you've done crimes...
    but the hard truth is: DO NOT MESS WITH FORCES YOU CANNOT CONTROL.
    The entire WORLD knows how MUSLIMS take offense. And we have every right to feel offended and insulted and mocked and belittled as we truly and purposefully were. The film SHOULDN'T have been made. As i have mentioned before, other religions maybe lenient, but obviously, not our religion. AND YOU PRODUCER/SCRIPTWRITER/ACTOR/T... also knew. Maybe (emphasis on the maybe) other believers don't feel insult when a dagger is thrown right into what they believe in. yeah, sure, they won't mind you making a filthy movie (This is hypothetical Mind you). But YOU know that THIS hurts us. And yet, you DO it?
    I really HATE saying this, but America, by allowing idiots to 'freely' do what they want, there'll ALWAYS be consequences.
    in conclusion, trash embassies if you must but don't KILL ANYONE.
    Plus, in Qatar (here) we have an American Embassy, I'M NOT TRASHING IT.
    TO ALL OF YOU MUSLIMS WHO DEPLORE THE MANUFACTURE OF SUCH A CHEAP-SHOT MOVIE, we know WHO the insult is directed to, and we know that all will eventually GET what they deserve. so don't sweat over some sewage-mouthed people and rest your feet in a tub of cold water and relaaaaaaaax....

    Our US embassy in Libya was not attacked by a country, or by rioters. It was attacked by Al Qaeda operatives that held recruitment and training headquarters in Derma, just east of Benghazi. It's also worth noting that even the protestors, as much as it has captured our TV and youtube screens over the last few days, account for a very very small number of people in those 11 middle eastern countries.

    Foreign aid has a host of its own problems, both economic and social, and while I think our government should absolutely reform how and why we give out foreign aid, this would not be one of the reasons.

    If the governments do nothing, or do too little, too late, then yes suspend aid until they act responsibly.

    If the governments step in quickly and stop the hostilities, make arrests and actually prosecute the perps then continue aid.
