The French embassy in Libya has been attacked and two guards have been injured.

"There was a lot of damage and there are two guards wounded."

A Libyan source said the blast caused serious damage to the building.

What YouTube video will Susan Rice be blaming on 5 Sunday talk shows for this “spontaneous” attack?

When will Hillary pretend it makes no difference?

Well, the French are Imperialists and also need to be taken to task for the actions of that Frankophile DeGaulle.

Ever since the 50's, France has been a target rather than a solution.

The Left would be blaming Bush for inspiring these attacks.

Kind of reminds me of the casualty ratios in the Reagan era attacks on our folks in Lebanon.

Lebanon, over 200 of ours killed, around 50 of the French killed. Libya, under Obama, 4 of ours killed, 3? of the French injured.

Lebanon was set up to be the Christian State, run by the French. They apparently totally F'd it up.

Israel still works for the Joos and Syria, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia work for the Whabbists.

We lost almost 100,000 KIA in WWIII. It wasn’t cold.

We did indeed do some dirty work. Thats exactly how i would catagorize close air support on behalf of black flag waving Al Qeida.
Under Obama, we now fight for the national interests of the EU, usually against Israel, and for Al Qeida (except in Afghanistan,,,,kinda).

Impeach.

"You know it, I know it, and the muslims know it."

And our government knows it. Obama is working for the other side and is doing all that he can to set up the Greater Caliphate and toppling governments which are in the way of that transnational Islamist dream.

Unfortunately, General George Marshall’s predictions were as accurate as Nostradamus’ predictions.

In 1948, Secretary of State George Marshall predicted terrorist attacks on Americans and an endless war between Arabs and Jews.

He was right.

But who is on what side?

Libya is very complicated, because of NATO's support for the Islamic militant's take over. Exactly who is behind this blast is not clear - it might be angry secularists, left over from the Gaddafi era.

And we are not allowed to know who was responsible for that organised military attack in Benghazi.
