because producing soap operas is what qualifies you to be an Ambassador ...

Isn't that how they are usually given out? How many people can name even one American ambassador to any country?

You mean the one, along with others, who were not important enough to support, protect, extract, or tell the truth about?

Yeh, why not an actor, in fact make it all actors.

The Obama administration = the dumbing down of America internationally.

no it has not shown to be false. The video of the burning Quran, is what incited the people along with the Muslim terrorists.

So if the video was the blame, what about the things that created the conditions the video ignited? Saying the YouTube vid set it off is a gross oversimplification. The video would have done nothing if the area wasn't a ready made powder keg to begin with.

over simplification... No such thing. Everything can be simplified.

the riots would not have happened without the video of the burning Koran.

same thing in Ferguson... The riots would not have happened if a white cop had not shot and killed an unarmed black man.

No such thing.... everything can be simplified indeed, but once you go too far it stops making sense.

The conditions were set well before the video was released. If it had not been posted, there would have been something else that set it off, and we would be discussing that instead. Bottom line is it was going to happen; holding up the video as the sole cause as you are is an oversimplification the point of perverting the facts.

you can't say for sure that it would have happened without the video... Just as you cannot say for sure the Ferguson riots would have happened without a catalyst.

I most certainly can. Some poor would have said something in a speech or landed on the wrong side of a cultural view and At some point we would end up with the same results. The spark is just the most recent link in the chain- if you want to find a true cause you have to either follow the links to the root or accept the chain in its entirety as a single entity.

No one ever said any event you mentioned would happen without a catalyst. What WAS said was that you can not hold up a single event as the root cause of the scenario. Please revise your post for accuracy.
