Earlier this week, I read in the USA Today that SecState Hillary Clinton said something to the effect that she couldn’t believe that the people in Lybia would attack the U.S. embassies because “we helped these people.”  Well, no shit, Sherlock!  Does everyone forget Osama bin Laden?  It doesn’t matter what the pundits and politicians say – because if we were honest, it’s all the same.  They condemn the attacks and promise swift retribution, but in the end, it’s more of the back alley deals, money going to places we don’t know, and alliances bought at our expense.

If Lybia should teach us anything, it should be this: The Middle East has proven time and time again that it is a volatile battleground.  We’re not talking of the same culture as exemplified here in the States; we are talking of a (for the most part) a third-world region.  Now I am not saying that there are no religious lunatics out there, but there are still more who resent America’s presence – of propping up dictators and despots.  Look at Mubarak.  We gave him billions of dollars so he could have a plethora of mansions, and all the while his people lived in poverty.

We claim that we are “pro-Israel”, but in reality, we give more to Israel’s enemies than we give to Israel herself.  What’s wrong with this picture?  Jesus said, “when you see the enemies of Israel surrounding her, run for the hills!”  And I believe we are seeing that prophecy come to fruition.

The highly provocative anti-Muslim video “trailer” researchers claim is the handiwork of the Islamophobic provocateurs Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer and a resurgent neocon network is responsible for a new round of violent protests in the Middle East.

From the nation with the world’s largest Muslim population, Indonesia, to Afghanistan, new protests broke out on Monday. Indonesian police fired teargas and water cannon to disperse demonstrators outside the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta, while in Kabul, Afghanistan, thousands of Muslims took to the streets and set fire to cars and shops and threw stones at police. Protesters also clashed with police in Pakistan and the Philippines on Monday.

Last week, following the death of the U.S. ambassador and three members of his staff in Libya, enraged Muslims protested in Asia, Africa and the Middle East and at least nine people lost their lives.

On Sunday, U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said that even though he believed violent reaction to the video appeared to be over, he ordered nonessential personnel to leave the American diplomatic missions in Sudan, Tunisia and Libya.

In Khartoum, Sudan, the German, Canadian and British consular services remained closed on Monday following attacks on a compound housing the German and British consulates. Despite ongoing protests in Egypt, the U.S. embassy in Cairo returned to full staffing on Monday, according to the State Department.

Appearing on the Alex Jones Show on Sunday, Webster Tarpley said the video is part of an ambitious international intelligence operation aimed at creating an October Surprise designed to install Mitt Romney and his coterie of Bush-era neocons in the White House.

“The pro-Israeli neocons of the Bush-Cheney era have attached themselves to Romney as their main hope of getting back into power,” Tarpley wrote for Infowars.com on Sunday. He attributed the video “trailer” to “a well-known Islamophobic network reputedly inspired by US intelligence,” a network that includes “Pamela Geller, a notorious professional Islamophobe.”

I’ve learned after a long time of harsh words, bruised egos, and clenched fists – you cannot change the opinions of others; particularly family members.  Suffice it to say – I go out of my way to avoid politics with those close to me.  I was over at my sister’s house yesterday when my brother-in-law and sister started talking of Romney.  And all the things he was “going to do”.

Now I don’t have cable, which means I was spared the temptation and agony of watching the Republican Convention, but apparently, Romney supports the freedom of religion.  Cool!  He knows what the First Amendment says!  He’ll repeal Obamacare, lower taxes, and create jobs.  The same rhetoric that every politician spouts.

“Yeah, even the gays are getting behind Romney!” my brother-in-law said.  (This is all true.  It’s too stupid to make up.)

“Really?!” my sister asked incredulously.  At this point, my face was contorted in a tight grimace.  I was trying very hard to keep out of this.

My personal oath not with standing, I took the bait.

“That’s because he supported same-sex marriage while he was Governor of Massachusetts,” I informed.  My brother-in-law’s face looked like Forrest Gump standing at a black-board trying to compute algebra.

“He was governor of Massachusetts?” he asked.

That’s when I realized – I give up!  If people aren’t going to know enough to know what state the Republican Presidential Candidate was governor of, then you won’t believe the facts about Romney.

Romney and President Obama are like those two cars in a used car lot.  You look at the outside.  Look at the inside.  Take it for a test drive.  But even still, you can tell that something just isn’t right.

Oh, and was that a “teleprompter” I saw the the RNC?  So when Romney starts to use one, can we blast him for it?
