Are we seriously going to station soldiers at every embassy where tensions are high? I'm cool with it since it means those soldiers probably won't die, but would it have even mattered? Would the soldiers sent there have died too?
The problem with the situation is that they had no clue what happened, which is actually understandable, and they may or may not have made up lies to make it seem not as bad. That's why it's shady.
Taking this time to again remind all the folks here to not insult each other. This hasn't happened often, which is good considering the subject, and the one above isn't actually insulting someone's opinion, but still just don't use insults.
