If the current administration in Washington has not learned by now it never will. Many in the middle east, some militant islamists, some regular citizens, some members of the "Brotherhood" and some just members of groups still fighting the "crusades of the middle ages" understand only one thing...POWER. If we can't defend an embassy in a hostile area we should not be there.
Until the governments and people in the hostile area realize that we would rather be respected than loved it will never change. Until they realize that whatever damage or death they inflict on us will be one thousand times greater on the perpetrators of the hostile act against us they will not understand. Power is the mainstay of diplomacy in the middle east followed very closely thereafter by money both above and under the table. Stop taking a knife to a gun fight and don't put our Marines in undefendable situations and if they still inflict damage and death make sure they understand the consequences to them will be a thousand times worse.
Stand with Israel, they are the only nation in that area that understands existential threat and probably the only one we can really count on in all of Europe...and I do understand what I am saying.
