Does the uprising against US consulates indicate a seething tide of resentment of US foreign policy?


One dreadful film and an international wave of violence against US consulates and embassies. Horrific despicable murders, burning buildings, a gigantic upsurge of anger. And all because of a backward hateful offensive film? Really? I put it to you that the film was only a catalyst and that the wave of uprising was in actual fact retaliation for a decade of US wars, imperialism , drone strikes, savage butchery of one million Iraq's, the occupation of Afghanistan, the plundering of oil wealth, the installation of puppet presidents and international disregard for the rule of law..?

    Wow this question has generated some great comments. I don't believe the attack on the consulate increased any animosity that wasn't already present . Chuck Bluestein may have a point advocating Jill Stein. Although that happening is slim to none.

    Wasn't this little video made by an Egyptian? Maybe in California, but by an Egyptian? Hello?

    We have to realize that the people who are rioting and burning are just a small minority of violent radicals who are more intent on bringing their own governments down then they are against the US. They don't want democracy.

    1) I mostly agree

    2) I agree 100%

    3) I disagree

    Stop giving them money and stop interfering in their political affairs and they will stop attacking us--I promise they will stop.

    The U.S. should mind it's own business. Would our Govt sit by and watch if another country came in here and tried to fix things?

    This country has over 300 million inhabitants. If one of us misbehaves, is it even rational to kill our consolate members? I think not, redical islam shows it's very ugly face here. Their's is a religion that is absolutist and tolerates nothing.
