The title of a recently released Fox News article is “Protesters ANGRY over anti-ISLAM film STORM (the) US Embassy in Yemen” (Web-site/URL: http://www.foxnews.com/world/2012/09/13/protesters-angry-over-anti-islam-film-storm-us-embassy-in-yemen/#ixzz26L7UVoR3). There are several things to note right off the bat: “angry” and “storm” signify/represent/imply/suggest ANGER, which we’ve had enough to deal with FOR A LIFETIME now and THERE IS NO PLACE for “anti-Islam” sentiment anymore. Most Muslims are COMPASSIONATE. Also, “storm” is EXTREMELY VIOLENT.
“Protesters ANGERED by a film they consider blasphemous to Islam have STORMED the U.S. Embassy compound in Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, in the most recent attack on U.S. diplomatic posts in the Middle East”. Again, “anger” is DANGEROUS and “storm” is VIOLENT.
“Protesters SMASHED windows as they breached the embassy perimeter and reached the compound grounds, although they did not enter the main building housing the offices. ANGRY young men brought down the U.S. flag in the courtyard, burned it and replaced it with a black banner bearing Islam’s declaration of faith — “There is NO God but Allah”. “smashed windows” is the latest VIOLENT action.
“The Embassy of the Republic of Yemen in Washington, D.C. said in a statement obtained by Fox News (that) the government of Yemen “STRONGLY CONDEMNS” the attack on the U.S. compound, but says THE SITUATION IS UNDER CONTROL“. Well, “the situation is under control” is the latest INTERPRETATION, BELIEF (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI) or most likely the latest POLITICAL FREAK SHOW. Also, many POLITICIANS “strongly condemn” actions, but then THEY SELDOM DO ANYTHING TO STOP THEM/PREVENT THESE ACTIONS FROM BEING CARRIED OUT IN THE FUTURE.
According to the statement, “Fortunately, NO casualties were reported from this CHAOTIC incident. The government of Yemen will HONOR INTERNATIONAL OBLIGATIONS to ensure the safety of diplomats and will STEP UP (the) security presence around ALL foreign missions“. “honor international obligations” and “step up (the) security presence around all foreign missions”. WILL THEY REALLY/TRULY/SERIOUSLY do this? “We strongly urge all those that would wish to incite others to violence to cease immediately“. Do they TRULY mean this?
Finally, “a senior administration official told Fox News“, “We are doing EVERYTHING WE CAN (?) to support our mission in Yemen”. Is the Obama administration “doing everything they can” to support Americans? This is THEIR INTERPRETATION (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI). “We’ve had GOOD (?) cooperation from the Yemeni government which is working with us to maintain order and protect our facilities and people“. “good?” Again, this is open to INTERPRETATIONS (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
This is the latest ANTI-AMERICAN sentiment in the Middle East, which is DEEPLY troubling, not only because of the targeting of a given country (in this case the US) but also for THE INNOCENT CIVILIANS of ALL countries who often get caught up/caught in the crossfire in these sorts of horrible situations. we now have something to track/monitor, in addition to the DIAOYU/SENKAKU mess involving CHINA, TAIWAN and JAPAN.
