‘Justice Will Be Done’ Over Killing Of US Ambassador In Libya, Says Obama

Barack Obama vowed on Wednesday to hunt down the killers of US ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans during an assault on its mission in Benghazi as suspicion grew that the diplomat was the victim of an organised attack by an Islamist group.

“Make no mistake: justice will be done,” Obama said at the White House. He described the killing, the first of a US ambassador since 1979, as “outrageous and shocking”.

Crucially, though, the president made it clear that the US would work alongside the Libyan government to track down those responsible and would not be turning its back on the Arab spring in Libya or elsewhere in the Middle East.

“This attack will not break the bonds between the United States and Libya,” he said.

    Now that a precedent has been created, If America believes that their Diplomatic Staff elsewhere is safe, after the US is meddling with other Soveriegn States, are sadly mistaken. The US should not have iinterfered with Libiya in the first place allowing Gadaffi to violate Human Rights in Libiya, to have supported at the begining and then to help the Libiyans unseat him to elect puppet regiems to manupilate. History is full of such American interferences. Phillipines, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Palastine etc. Do not go far see what the Americans are doing in Sri Lanka? The same and do not be surprised after MR delivers and becomes a spent force, one day they will rid MR in similar fashion. There is no assurance that htey will not. As for the killing of their Diplomat, the US has to take full responsibility. Afterall when America sows Terrorism and violence the world over, one day they will have to reap it themselves. Like in the Oklahoma tragedy violence will come home to roost. The day is not far where the entire world will turn against the Americans for their duplicity they dish at the moment.

      Sawmeer, as I mentioned elsewhere, that there is a saying in Sinhalese, that one could build a fence round a country, but not around one’s mouth. You are accusing that since the other countries have not taken a stand against the issue, they too are supporting such anti-Islamic rubbish. So what do you propose Kill all non Muslim People?

    “And He it is Who has created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon, each in an orbit floating.” (21:33)
    “Until when he reached the place where the sun set, he found it going down into a black sea, and found by it a people.” 13:87 (Quran says earth is fixed and flat and the Sun has a ‘setting place’. rising place is mentioned in 13:90)

    Koranic teaching still insists that Sun moves around the earth.

    How can we advance, when they teach like this?? ;) :) ;)

    My my my! Enter Hema the ignoramus! What a wonderful discovery !!! After more than fourteen centuries of its existence, Hema discovers that the Quran says the Earth is flat! How come all those Orientalists and critics like George Sale, Montgomery Watt missed this one. Hema what is wrong with 21:33? As for 13:87 and 13:90 Surah 13 has only 43 verses. This indicates that Hema has no idea of what 13:87 or 13:90 refers to. Probably copied his stuff from the dharmadveepaye blogspot! If the Quran says the Earth is flat how come the Japanese Astronomer Dr. Yoshikade Kozai, Professor Emeritus at Tokyo University. Hongo, Tokyo and Director National Observatory, Mikita said, “I am very much impressed by finding true astronomical facts in the Qur’an..”

    It will take a long time for Americans and the US Govt to forget the national indignity of 9/11. The rednecks have sworn this “long planned aggressive invasion” – in a country proud not to have been invaded, even in the last WW1 & 2, cannot be “allowed to remain unchallenged” OBL and Saddam Hussain are gone; and so have many lower level leaders within and outside Al Qaeda, who offered succour to the 9/11 Project. Gaddafi was taken off on different grounds – and,it is believed, others who helped to finance, plan and executive 9/11 will not be spared.

    Barak Obama’s pledge here has to be taken in all its seriousness.
