    An ambassador killed is not "one body". It's more than just a killing, seriously, how many times does this have to be said?

    Now, leaving even that aside, and talk about just an act of violence -- we don't know what was 'engendered by this film', this was some fringe BS on the interwebs which nobody would have noticed if some people with nothing better to do didn't riot.

    Whatever Americans find offensive is worth discussing. Some Americans used to - and still do - find Lolita offensive. Or Huckleberry Finn. Or fucking Teletubbies. They didn't use it as an excuse to kill a foreign ambassador (that is, to effectively commit an act of war).

    For some reason I feel a "Hitler denounces Innocence of Muslims: Gangnam Style" is coming. I shudder to think the extent of violence that will engender, unless those who use stupid Internet videos as an excuse for violence are put in place here and now.

      The score is one ambassador killed, and people are discussing on what we did to provoke that.

      What about my Daughter's future?
