Embassy Attacks: Senseless Violence?
Call me old school, I but consider destroying one's embassy and killing one's Ambassador & staff MUCH more than "senseless violence," a characterization recently made by the president and secretary of state. To me, these are acts of War and justification for an escalation of the Global War on Terror--specifically aimed against radical Islamists...who ultimately want all freedom loving infidels erased from the Earth.
Apparently, the markets are responding positively despite the perpetual Middle East turmoil and Ben Bernanke's recent announcement regarding artificially deflated short term interest rates. America needs to find a peaceful solution to its messy relationships in the Middle East and certainly could use a reprieve from expensive (in lives and dollars) war. But peace is likely fleeting when people who despise it are involved in its acquisition.
