The Obama administration has pulled back the deployment of 50 Marines to protect its embassy in Khartoum because of objections of the Sudanese government.

In other words, the Obama administration is more willing to obey the orders of the Sudan government than it is willing to protect the lives of U.S. citizens abroad.

    President Dhimitude Obama has bowed again in order not to offend the cult of Islam. We should cease all payments to these countries, especially the $2 billion a year to Egypt. Let’s call it was it really is….tribute money. This is exactly what this country was doing in the early 1790’s until President Madison sent our newly commisioned navy frigates to the Med. The frigate the U.S.S Constitution, the oldest commissioned naval vessel in the world, was instrumental in ending tribute payments to the North African muslem kalifs and is now mored proudly in Boston’s Harbor.
    We can’t agree to this nascent caliphate to dictate even the slightest of its demands. Each small acquiescense to them is submission to Islam. Eventually, just like a frog slowly boiling in a pot, the dhimi accepts his fate by his own ding. Weak and pathetic is he. We must resist sharia and fight it. It’s the only thing these thugs understand as evidenced through history.

  • We need to understand that embassies and consulates are a privilege we bestow on other countries. If they can’t do their part in protecting its perimeter or allow us to protect its interior then we should pull it out.

    We don’t need them. We will have a presence in their country, but it will be clandestined and not include any foreign aid. jwing is absolutely right about tribute money.
