US envoy expects turbulence in Mideast

2012-09-16 17:08

Washington - The US ambassador to the United Nations says those who have lost out during the transition to democracy in the Mideast are to blame for the recent mob violence against the United States.

Susan Rice says it's a time of dramatic change in the region and that the US understands that when democracy starts to take root, that may lead to turbulence in the short term.

She tells CNN's State of the Union that just as people across the Mideast no longer will allow their lives "to be hijacked by a dictator, they're not going to allow extremist mobs to hijack their future and their freedom".

Rice says the US is working closely with governments around the world to make sure that US diplomats and American facilities are protected.

    I will not send my sons to war, if it were up to me, I will put out all my soldiers and send them home to their loved ones. At the end of the day, God is judge and God knows why He is allowing this war and un-rest.

      This is a physical universe of time, space and FREE WILL. God doesn't interfere. It's completely up to us what we choose to make of our lives and our world. Have you ever considered that there might also be a Goddess, a feminine expression of the Divine?
