Of suspending people traveling into the US from 7 Middle East Countries...a suspension of 90 days.
Do you agree with these diplomats? or do you think they should resign?
I personally think they are not looking out for the American people. It is their primary duty to keep Americans safe. This action is a temporary measure so that we can have a better handle on dealing with refugees and others seeking asylum.
These same diplomats have done little to prevent previous attacks by Al Qaeda and ISIS on US and other European soils. Perhaps they are part of the problem when they refuse to be part of the solution...
What is your opinion?
No they should not be fired. But at best their specialty, diplomacy, can be used to gain assistance from other countries in the physical fight against terrorism. The terrorists themselves aren't much interested in diplomacy, not when the stated goal is the eradication of every human being that doesn't embrace their version of religion. You are either a Muslim accepting their (terrorist) version of Islam or you are dead; anything else is unacceptable.

As I would have expected: long on talk and short on actions. But that's what we hire diplomats to do - talk their way out of trouble. It's why they are there, and we need them to to keep on doing that.
Unfortunately, that means that those same diplomats will refuse to acknowledge that talk cannot solve the problem of militants who demand no less than extermination of every human being not under their control. There is nothing to negotiate, no concessions to be made and no cooperation possible.
Useful in a great many areas, then, but utterly useless in dealing with terrorism for there is nothing to talk about.
