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.

  1. 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.

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

    Freakin November can’t come soon enough.

     
  3. 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.

     
  4. 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 Chinese, THE CHINESE, to protest near our embassy, and attack OUR Ambassador in such an islamic like manner? And all over a dispute with Japan! Obama and crew has enabled this disaster. It is even more sinister than how it appears, because Obama is only the figurehead. People conspired to put him in power. People such as that Iranian born, Chicagoland sleeze bucket, Valerie Jarrett, of whom Michele Obama was once employed by. She is likely the power behind Obama’s throne. not only are these thugs criminally complicit, but they’re criminally incompetent as well. This is nothing but a sinister, cynnical Alinskyite plot to bring about socialist “hope and change,” with the further goal of placing our nation and her very sovereignity at the service and control of international bodies, both known and obscure.

     
  5. 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)

     
  6. 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?

     
  7. 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 prosperity. Pursuing happiness is right there in our Constitution.

    The second pillar, “agreements or deals”, whether with friend or foe were, only as good as our ability to ensure their implementation. While verification was most associated with the arms control agreements Reagan negotiated with the former Soviet Union, it applied to much more. The corollary was that in the absence of verifiability, we did not trust our adversaries. Reagan was also saying: “Don’t trust if you can’t verify”.

    The third pillar, and the one often forgotten, is that Reagan understood that evil stalks the modern world. And this was true, whether it was the communism of the Soviet Union, the gulag that was Vietnam and Cambodia, or the murderous regimes in Iran, North Korea, Grenada or Cuba, or as important, their terrorist allies and accomplices. What we have today is the relentless evil force of Islamic extremism that has to be destroyed before it destroys us.

     
  8. 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.

     
  9. 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 drug money and act as paymasters for terrorists?
    We are bailing out who? Banksters? Has the EU just decided to hand over authority to the European Central Bank? or the Troika, the IMF and whoever else is part of the three bank entities? They just want money to carry on with this mayhem until we are so broke that we haven’t got a breath left in our body. They are planning the austerity measures of all austerity measures, they are obeying the banksters who are calling the shots and we know that they are funnelling money from the drug cartels into weapons and militia to cause havoc, their film about Mohammed is just part of the plan and the press is still talking about that. Meantime the clock is ticking and we are getting nowhere fast, and the drills in the Med. and the Gulf are under way…………………………
    Glass Steagall would shut down the banks that are loaded down with worthless assets. That would at least be a place to start. Then we could figure out how much it would take to get people back to work and big projects underway with Credit uttered by Congress that will be repaid over one or two generations time, but the enormity of the infrastructure projects we need to start will more than cover the costs and keep the economy rolling and oour children educated and fed and housed with decent healthcare etc. When will we get back to progress and scientific research and develop protection for the planet that will safeguard us from rogue nuclear attacks from rogue attackers, and objects from space that might be hurtling towards us and cause us massive damage.
    We have to start looking at alternatives to the news, and create some good news that will give people something to believe in and to want to continue living for. The reason everyone is so quiet is because they are wondering if a third world war will break out and what that will do to civilization, it’s something we need to react against, by doing constructive things.
    Marcy Kaptur’s HR 1489 is a good place to begin with. Rep. Jones resolution 107 is also important.
    Our congressmen and women could be on the case.
    Jam the phone lines, jam the internet email system,
    get a bull horn and stand on the corner and tell everyone passing by that it’s time to stand up for the Constititution and our sovreignty.

     
  10. “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 the same in any country.”
    – Hermann Goering, Nazi leader.

     
    • Thank you for that history lesson, Fadi. I’m sure you also dispensed that Goering quote about how “leaders” “drag” the stupid dumb “people” to hate and to war — to the Muslims rioting in Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Syria, Iran, Iraq, the Philippines, Indonesia, Afghanistan, attacking and setting fire to U.S. embassies and consulates, tearing down the U.S. flag, torturing and killing U.S. diplomats.

      You didn’t? Gasp. Now why is that?

       
  11. 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.

     
    • We have photos of the incident but you ask “Did it happen?”
      Surely, smkelly8, you know that the media and the Internet are controlled by the Communist Party in China. I hardly expect this news to be plastered all over China’s media, do you?
      Yes, as noted in my post, the protest was directed against Japan — about a territorial dispute between China and Japan over several tiny islets in the East China Sea, which the Chinese call Diaoyutai and the Japanese call Senkaku. While tiny, the islets are important because of the potentially rich oil and natural gas deposits under the seabed. The islets originally were part of the Ryukyu Kingdom (now called Okinawa), which was a dependent (tributary state) of ancient China under the dynasties. Inn 1898, Japan colonized Ryukyu. After Japan was defeated at the end of WW2, the U.S. took over administration of Ryukyu. Since “China” became divided into the People’s Republic of China ruled by the Communist Party on the mainland vs. the Republic of China on Taiwan, the U.S. chose NOT to “return” the islets to either China, but to Japan’s administration instead. Today, both Chinas and Japan claim sovereignty over the islets, but the dispute periodically go into crisis mode — as it is now, with violent anti-Japanese demonstrations in China and even in Chinatowns in the United States, including the mysterious death of Japan’s ambassador to China.

      All of which begs the question: Why would anti-Japanese demonstrators in Beijing attack the car of the U.S. ambassador to China?
