So, as you all have heard.
US embassies been attacked in Middle East over a blasphemous film.
What are your thoughts about it?
In my opinion,
people were already angry on americans and this film just proved last straw on camel's back (you get it?)

yeah, but still, protesters don't normally bring RPG's to protests, and probably don't burn the scene. No sir, this was planned.

it was AL-Quaida who attacked the emmbesy. they tried to do it for a time, and now they sucseed, used the protest to do so.

even more, after the attack, protesters against the attack assulted the al-quaida camp in bangazi, killed some of them and drove al-quaida out of libya. {or bangazi at least}.

Those were islamistic militia who were droven off in Benghazi. Not that it matters; or maybe the militia are Al-Qaida offshoots, I don't know.

But I think all are right until now.. people were already angry, the movie has increased resentment but the militia took advantage of the situation; after all it's true that regular protesters don't assault an embassy with rockets and grenades.

I don't like this assumption that all armed islamist groups are linked to al-quaeda. Do you really find it plausible that all extemeist muslim terrorist groups in the world are linked to the same organisation. Sounds like a US government plan to get everyone united in the so called 'war on terror'.

Back on topic, as ridiculous as this 'Innocence of Muslims' film is, it is in no way a justification for the shameful violence and rioting that has taken place. My condolences to the family of the US ambassador to Libya, the people that died in the streets in Pakistan and congratulations to the citizens of Bengazi for driving out the militia responsible for that particular attack.

Got it now: one of the militia in Benghazi that was attacked, the one that was suspected of being behind the attacks, are a branch of the Islamist radical group Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, a Salafist militia. No direct link to Al Qaida, apparently.

On another note, I found a very interesting little study on the protests about the movie. He tried to evaluate the numbers of the protestants compared to the 'Arab Spring' demonstrations, and comes to the conclusion that "The recent crowds are pathetic, by comparison".

Really worth your time; once again the media made a huge sensation about something not even that dramatic. So if someone tells you that 'the Arab world is up in arms', you can tell them that's not true.

In Pakistan, it was agreed that protesters will give a resolution to ambassador but police fired live munition at them with any provocation on Protesters part and the proverbial pressure cooker blew up

Well this is a thing you will surely not hear in the media. And its not a bad thing to protest in front of a emmbasie. but when it in such a rage, its creep me out a little, with all the flag burnings and stuff. whenever there is fire, there will be violance i say.

And punisher, what could happen if they would went in front of the embessie? will these protesters just protest, or a Excited protester will call to assult in? what the spirit "in the street", rage or just solidarity with Islam?

The goal of the protesters is to slaughter westerners because the protesters are very savage and uncivilized people.
