Comment Of The Day

From Ann Althouse’s blog in a discussion of the woman who knelt by the body of the British soldier who had just been murdered by two radical Muslims. The discussion also asked where were the men.

That was a Brit thing. She could not act any better than she was trained
to act. But she will courageously take flowers to the funeral.

An American mother would have grabbed a gun and shot the attacker with a high capacity magazine until it was empty.

The British cops also just stood around waiting for their firearms unit to arrive. Perhaps, just perhaps, if someone had come to the aid of the soldier when he was getting stabbed and before he was beheaded, he might be “in hospital” recovering from his wounds.

Comment Of The Day

The comment of the day comes from Ann Althouse’s blog in response to her post titled, “Dead Ambassador dragged through streets, MSM furious at Romney criticism of Obama.” It was made by someone named Matthew Salban in reference to the media and their coverage of the Islamofascist attacks on the US Embassy in Cairo and the US Consulate in Benghazi.

If you’re more worried about whether Romney was mean to Obama rather than how the Executive Branch failed to protect our diplomat and other Americans, your priorities: Fix them.

I couldn’t agree more. I well remember the 444 days that Americans diplomats were held by Iranian “students” after they invaded our embassy in Tehran. I would have thought security had improved a bit since then.
