Letter: Protecting our territory

The grounds of all embassies throughout the world are considered to be the sovereign territory of the country occupying the property.

Here in America, any embassy would be protected with the blood of our police and military, yet we have just seen the police in Muslim countries barely lift a finger to protect our diplomatic missions.

Our current policy in protecting our diplomats is to take away the ammunition of the Marine guards and allow armed and unarmed rioters to invade our diplomatic missions.

This is insane, to say the least; our embassies are part of our country, and invading them should be considered an act of war.

Now that I have stated the obvious, let’s solve the problem:

Give the Marine guards ammunition for their weapons, make sure they are loaded and issue orders for them to protect our embassies.

Notify all countries in no uncertain terms that anyone within their borders who invades our embassies should be thwarted by that hosting country. They must be held accountable, and there will be no negotiations when it comes to the safety of American citizens and property within their borders.

If this condition is not met completely, there must be consequences — not with the threat of invasion where American service members will be lost, but with alternatives which will be spelled out in the initial notification.

The first step in the process is an immediate hard tug on the purse strings, cutting off aid and freezing assets.

If there is not immediate compliance, start dismantling the infrastructure of their country using precision guided munitions (Tomahawks) to knock out their power grid, etc.

As soon as the word gets out that messing with the U.S. will guarantee that you will be flushing your toilet with a bucket of sea water, things will calm down in a hurry.
