Another U.S. ambassador attacked by mob

This time by a Chinese mob.

That’s what happens when we have an administration in the White House who apologizes instead of standing up for our values and securing the safety of our diplomats and personnel abroad. America appears weak and wimpy because many in the world (and in America) see might as strength, and passivity as weakness.

Projecting Weakness: Another U.S. Ambassador Attacked

by John Nolte – Breitbart.com – 19 Sep 2012

While our president parties with Jay-Z and David Letterman; while our State Department blames a movie for four murders in Libya; while our Embassy in Cairo doubles down on an apology to the terrorists who attacked it; while Obama farms out embassy security to private security firms in Britain; while we refuse to point to our enemy and call it by name; while Obama treats the atrocities in Egypt and Libya as crime scenes instead of terrorist attacks — the message this White House is sending out to the world is that if you target American ambassadors the repercussions might be a strongly worded statement.

How else to explain yet another brazen attack on an American ambassador:

A car carrying the U.S. ambassador to China was mildly damaged after becoming the target of boisterous anti-Japan demonstrators who were expressing outrage over a territorial dispute [the Diaoyutai or Senkaku islets in the East China Sea] and marking the 81st anniversary of Japan’s invasion of China.

The State Department said in a statement Wednesday that Ambassador Gary Locke was unhurt in Tuesday’s incident, and that diplomats have expressed concerns to the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

The statement said around 50 protesters surrounded Locke’s car as he tried to enter the embassy and were eventually removed by Chinese security personnel.

The incident comes amid heightened vigilance for American diplomats following violent attacks on U.S. embassies in Libya, Yemen and Egypt. The statement said embassy officials have asked the Chinese government to do everything possible to protect American facilities and personnel.

It’s wholly obvious that under the feckless leadership of President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton that the United States is no longer respected or feared. And why would anyone fear us?

Our response to the attacks in Egypt and Libya looked like an episode of “C.S.I” meets “Law and Order,” which means the Beijing protesters knew they had nothing to fear.

And they were right.

Look at our reaction to this latest attack:

The statement said embassy officials have asked the Chinese government to do everything possible to protect American facilities and personnel.

Ooh. Slow down, State Department. We don’t want to upset the bad guys.

It’s open season on our embassies and foreign service personnel. Just because the media won’t report it, doesn’t mean it’s not true.

Former Washington State Governor (D), Gary Locke and his wife, Mona, are both from Chinese-American families, fluent in the languages and culture. During his tenure as governor, they traveled frequently to China on trade missions and vacations to visit relatives still living there. From a cultural viewpoint, he was an excellent candidate for the job of Ambassador.

How about the American government start doing everything possible to protect American facilities and personnel? Novel concept.

Freakin November can’t come soon enough.

I could be wrong, but I doubt if Obama will have ‘harsh words’ for China, since we owe them about a gozillion dollars and we can’t afford for them to cut off our credit. That is assuming he even knows about this incident.

This is such an outrage. When is our Congressional leadership gonna grow a pair, and likewise, the same with the DoD’s top leadership (uniformed, sans Panetta and crew) and make haste for 1600 Penn. Ave. with a warrant for the usurper’s arrest? Furthermore, what federal judge will step up and issue one? It seems to have gotten to that level of necessity. Obama must be removed post haste before he totally ruins our nation and seals the fate of the entire free world (whats left of it) in the process. Who would have known or expected of all people, the… Read more »

Some ambitious generals in China have been stirring up dreams of empire. How many times has this planet endured such bastards since the time of the original monster, Nimrod? (Genesis 10:8-10)

I’d like to know when the POS (see, ya’ll now have me calling him that) will avenge the death of our Libyan Ambassador?

Ronald Reagan’s three most important pillars of national security policy were (1) peace through strength; (2) trust but verify; and (3) beware of evil in the modern world. We followed that wisdom. And communism collapsed. The Soviet empire crumbled. Tyrants everywhere fell onto the ash heap of history. And emerging democracies and markets gave promise to the long held desire of human kind for peace and prosperity. The first pillar, “strength”, Reagan described was both military and economic—the two worked hand in hand. We did not apologize for our military power. It created the peace. And we did not demonize… Read more »

Look, after he gets over his post Letterman high, I am sure he will quickly dispatch a fairly, sort of strongly worded tweet plea and this will all be water under the bridge.

I guess the celebrations over the Fast and Furious report giving Eric Holder a pass took precedence over taking precautions for our diplomats and our service men and women. This cannot be a serious of mistakes, this has to be a coup d’etat. We have been overwhelmed by the enemy, they have us on our knees, are we confessing Jesus Christ is Lord? Or are we looking for a banana peel to complain about? What is congress doing? What do they say about the Fast and Furious report? What good is QE3 going to do? Money for banks who launder… Read more »

“Why of course the people don’t want war … But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship … Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works… Read more »

I’m in China now and there’s no report of this whatsoever by any countries’ media. Did it happen? I’m not far from Beijing and the only demonstrations now are Anti-Japanese. That’s what the fuss is about. I can read Chinese and Japanese and the sign the man’s carrying talks about Japan, not the USA.
