Secretary Clinton, in response to the killing of the US Ambassador in Libya:
"I ask myself, how could this happen? How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?" Clinton said. "This question reflects just how complicated and, at times, how confounding the world can be."
The reason that this happened isn't "confounding" at all, Secretary Clinton. The reason this stuff happens is pretty simple.
Regardless of the fact that there are many reasonable, rational people living in the middle east (and there are many) - there are still many thousands that are totally batshit crazy evil. They hate us, and there's nothing we can do about it. No way to placate them. No way to "apologize" our way into their good graces. No way to bow respectfully before their leaders and win them over.
The only solution is to kill those that threaten us.
