    “The suffering and bloodshed is outrageous and it is unacceptable. So are threats and orders to shoot peaceful protesters,” Obama said in his first public comments on the violence in Libya.” …extract from article

    So let’s turn the tables. The American people have finally had a bellyful of the shenanigans in D.C. There’s massive rioting and people are rushing the White House as well as other government buildings seeking both vengeance and revenge against our obviously corrupt, listless leadership. The President orders a crackdown with SWAT, police and the military mowing down U.S. citizens with rubber bullets, taser cluster guns, heat guns and finally machine and chain gun fire to maintain their power. From afar; ie, the Euro Union, Russia, China and the rest of the world witness aghast at the bloodshed with a similar appeal…

    “The suffering and bloodshed is outrageous and it is unacceptable. So are threats and orders to shoot peaceful protesters,” World leader’s said in their first public comments on the violence in the U.S. Capitol.” …!?

    Given the same scenario as in Libya, Egypt, China or anywhere else and our government would make these government authorities seem like “Rebeccas at Sunnybrook Farm” dealing with the crisis. The government knows how to crush dissent, it being on the cutting edge of both high and low tech ‘crowd control’ including torture in these times…no?

    What a bunch of hypocrites in D.C. They need keep their traps shut and stay out of other nations’ business…period! We need to clean up our own act and allow free speech again without it being designated to special zones or busting heads when people darest turn their backs on the likes of Hillary Clinton et al. during a speech as they did to Ray McGovern and former CIA analyst and subject matter expert that’s advised former presidents including her husband.
