Will Obama consider the Libyan embassy attack an act of war?

Under international law, an embassy is actually part of a nation. Will Obama just claim that it was a partisan effort by "others" to make him look bad?

    i`m not sure how 0bama will handle it, if he shines it on or apologizes to the Libyans he will show how weak he is.

    War is political action by other means.

    Libyan Embassy attack is an act of War. the Embassy is US Sovereign soil an attack on an embassy is an attack on the USA itself..

    Obama will do nothing, He is in campaign mode and the re-election is more important.

    Yes it is an act of war.

    Sovereign American soil was attacked and US citizens were killed.

    Sadly, no he won't. Obama will apologize for our citizens dying and making muslims look bad yet again.

    Matt: Your ignorance on the matter is astounding.

    An embassy is not part of a "sovereign" state, regardless of what you may think. The embassy is there because they allowed it to be there.

    Furthermore why the hell do we need an embassy in the middle of a war zone? You got 2 factions of Libyans fighting in a civil war, and we have an embassy sitting right dab in the middle of it all.

    Not smart at all. More wasted tax dollars.

    Source(s): Learn what a diplomatic mission. Embassies are not sovereign to the states they are representing. Meaning, just because we have an embassy there doesn't mean it's "The United States of America".

    I sure hope he does. We should never take the murdering of an Ambassador lightly!! I doubt he will though. Its election time so he needs to be very, very careful about what he does.

    edit:

    Anyone who politicizes this is a disgrace. An utter disgrace to the USA!!!! We should pray for this mans family NOT use his death to attack our president.

    no it was attacked by a mob so it's not an act of war. the embassy will have to be shut down at best.

    He will consider it community organizing, Chicago style.

    Source(s): More people were killed in Chicago last weekend than all the embassy attacks so far this year.

    We don't know yet until we know who those mobsters were. Investigate and rule out things first before taking action. Let us not repeat the stupidity of GWB once again. We know these people are illiterate and uneducated. I think we need to be LOGICAL and not Illogical.
