Don’t Kill Americans Or Call Death on America After They Supported Your Freedom

American mass-media reported on Thursday September 13, 2012 that our Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in an attack at the United States Consulate in Benghazi of Libya. That shocked all Americans because the United States Government helped the Libyan people to help change the cruel dictatorial regime of Muammar Gaddafi, to allow real freedom and democracy.

It was to gain a better and new democratic Libya that our ambassador Christopher Stevens worked hard, with sincerity and the best will. Chris Stevens’ longtime friend Daniel Seidemannn told CNN interviewer Michael Pearson that “He has probably done more than anybody on the planet to help the Libyan people, and he knew going in that this was not going to protect him.” [CNN]

In some places, there was a chain of violent demonstrations in cities across the Muslim World ( Egypt, Lebanon, Sudan, Tunisia, Yemen, Pakistan, Mauritania, Indonesia etc.) in attacking American diplomats, embassies, schools and work places. The media and government said it was as a pretext of the “film that mocks Islam,” but we now know there was no such demonstration in Benghazi – it was just an attack.

So the United States President Barack Obama in Washington, “welcomed home the bodies of four US officials who were killed on Tuesday when armed militants stormed the consulate in Benghazi, cradle of last year’s Western-backed Libyan revolution.” On this tragic occasion, he underlined that: “Their sacrifice will never be forgotten. We will bring to justice those who took them from us. We will stand fast against the violence on our diplomatic missions.”

Also, United States Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, said: “He risked his life to stop a tyrant, then gave his life trying to help build a better Libya.”

To Revise Diplomacy Toward Muslim Countries

There should be no more military, diplomatic, economic, security commitment and money for democratization of the Muslim countries that in different forms (financially, politically etc) help fundamentalism and terrorism of Al-Queda around the world in order to kill American people and to call “death on America.”

We should not spend trillions and trillions and tolerate the killing of Americans and harm American interests for Muslim Democracy and democratization in Muslim countries. This is a hypothetical national strategy that is not worth it because it is contrary to our national common and vital interests internally and abroad. American politics and diplomacy to the Muslim countries should be revised immediately because giving is not worth it to spend a billion and trillion dollars for their democracy, and they are killing us without any mercy using our money and our overall aid, in the name of radicalism, fundamentalism and Islamic terrorism of Al-Qaeda and similar ideologies.

Every support and remuneration given by the United States should be seen as a reward, not reciprocated with murder, terrorism and plots etc. Those who are seeking and chanting death to America and burning the American Flag, be it individually, groups, organizations or riots anywhere for any political or religious motive, etc.., they don’t deserve any kind of help regardless of whether they are Muslims, Christians or Buddhists etc. The adequate and prompt answer should be military, political, diplomatic and appropriate sanctions.

Every American killed at any place around the world by Islamic fundamentalists and terrorists, must be a punishable act according to all norms of international law, the laws and the Constitution of the United States of America.

Those that burn the American Flag and kill the American people (uniformed or civilian) everywhere be it inside or outside of the United States, are enemies of America and Americans. Therefore there’s no excuse for anyone who kills Americans, and there should be punishment without any mercy and hesitation by the United States Government.

There’s no toleration and prolongation of the revenge to any killer who is killing or terrorizing Americans and burning the American flag.

No excuse! No excuse!
