Context is everything. Send in the Marines. But with boxes and moving vans. Its a good business opportunity. Within twenty-four months, who knows if there will be a Western Embassy in an Arab country. And Saudi Arabia getting nervous? Who cares about the embassy; the KFC restaurant in Libya was first choice, allegedly because the real estate was worth more.And maybe there was a rumor on the street about chickens. That KFC chickens were intrinsically connected to the film “Innocence of Muslims” that could be traced directly, and without doubt to Jewish poultry slaughterhouse in Crown Heights.
You could say America has unleashed forces it can no longer control, a classic blow up in yer’ face after arming them and toppling the dictator which apparently was the easy part, we are having re-runs of Afghanistan and American tactics used to drive out Russia. And to think Obama just wanted a quiet easy election, not to be annoyed about some rumor of an Iranian bomb.

Significantly, the Bush administration also disparages Iran’s assertion that it needs to develop alternative fuels in anticipation of the eventual decline in the country’s extensive oil reserves. But the Shah and his government made the exact same statements in the 1970s.
…The record also shows that the Shah’s regime and the current Iranian government have made the same claims that their pursuit of nuclear technology was an inherent national entitlement.
