In fact, President Barack Obama has already ordered the tightening of security at every American embassy in the Middle East, after the killing the above incident. Obama said the US government has received assurance from the new Libyan government that the culprits would be brought to justice for the killings of the US personnel.
This is not the first time that threats and intimidations had been done to those who put the Islamic religion into a mockery. Many years ago, British novelist Salman Rushdie was threatened and ordered for elimination by then Ayatollah Khomeini for writing a book titled "The Satanic Verses." However, the threats upon Rushdie's life never prospered.
As this is written, the American people are asking why the victims had to suffer for the faults of others? The answer could be remote from reality as the reactions of the mob was swift to bring what they thought as justice served for the mockery of Islam.
The culprits may have thought that killings were outright justification for the mistakes that the victims didn't commit in the first place. At this time, when collateral damages are being experienced by some American citizens or any other nationalities overseas, it is only incumbent upon the conscience of other people to refrain from sowing uncanny things where the lives of their fellow men are put at stake.
