Democracy American style

I might not like what you say but I L-O-V-E your freedom to say it. We need to let these protesters and their governments know that when you kill Americans and burn our flag that there will be a price to pay. Namely, close down the embassies, pull out all the Americans, and discontinue American aide. That would be the way to let them know that they have the right to protest but not to destroy. They simply don't want to know that there is a vast difference between what America stands for and what democracy means. Americans tolerate all religions because we are a democracy. We tolerate freedom of speech not matter how despicable the words may be simply because we are a democracy. Yemen, Libya, Egypt, Sudan etc all equate hateful speech and American policy/government. We know this is a false premise. Until they understand the difference they may never be a true democracy.
