1.(esp. of an actor) portray emotion in a theatrical manner
It is so much easier to have people handled when they are easily 'moved' to emotion in an understanding an event is happening to them.
The American people don't even know whom they are relating to, but, yet they are suppose to send in the military to save the day.
When Beslan occurred, it was the rescuers that promoted deaths of children and parents, but, it was NOT the rescuers that took them hostage.
In Egypt, a young woman stood on a street corner and tweeted the end of the world was coming, little did they know it actually would.
In Libya, a real madman was killing entire villages of people and the USA disarmed him. It was right to do, but, in the aftermath the militias, no different than in Iraq, decided they wanted nothing more of Western influence in their country. I can't imagine why. A magnificent Ambassador and his protectors died because Americans believe they can over come anything.
The infrastructure was ready. The nation was settled and prepared. People died and people lived but not because they government acted against them, but, because their government responded.

The survivors of January's siege of an Algerian (click here) gas plant still cannot believe they are alive. Forty of their colleagues died when Islamic militants took them hostage. The Algerian army opened fire on the convoy of hostages and terrorists as they broke out of the plant. It is only now that some have felt able to tell their stories.For BP team leader Lou Fear and his wife Lori at home in the UK, the morning of 16 January 2013 began as usual with a text message from Lou. But the content was anything but normal.
It told her terrorists were roaming around - the plant was under attack. Lou was barricaded in his office with some colleagues and hiding behind a filing cabinet. The militants were just outside.
"Somebody tried the door handle and they were saying, 'Come out, come out, we're friends,' in Arabic," says Lou. "I would never have believed it would be a terrorist attack. It was incomprehensible, but it was real."...
There are talks and it is turbulent, but, it is happening. Islamists are difficult to deal with. They are not going away and neither are those that they have to deal with, so, the process will be long.
Tunisia's Islamist-led coalition (click here) has failed to agree with the opposition on how to end weeks of political deadlock, mediators said on Saturday, ahead of planned anti-government protests....
OMG, there is a Southern Sudan. Did you know that? I do believe the man in the USA White House had something to do with that.
Since President Obama was elected Southern Sudan was born in January of 2011. The anger was incredible and Sudan insisted on more killing, but, it is different now. This may take awhile.
KHARTOUM/JUBA |(Reuters) - South Sudan's President Salva Kiir (click here) will visit Sudan on Tuesday for talks with President Omar Hassan al-Bashir, officials said on Sunday, as the long-time foes seek to avert a halt of vital cross-border oil flows.
Diplomats hope what is only Kiir's second visit to Khartoum since South Sudan's secession in 2011 will help build trust between the neighbors, who fought one of Africa's longest civil wars that ended in 2005.
Both countries agreed in March to defuse tensions and resume oil exports from landlocked South Sudan through the north, its only route to market.
But Sudan has threatened to halt oil flows by September 6 unless Juba cuts ties with rebels operating across the disputed and unmarked border. South Sudan denies providing them any support.
Kiir and Foreign Minister Barnaba Marial Benjamin will travel to Khartoum to discuss implementing the March agreement with Bashir, South Sudan's foreign ministry spokesman Mawien Makol Arik said....
In Syria there are more than 20 million people. 100 Thousand or more are dead in a civil war. There was a chemical weapon attack by the leader of the nation. It was legal regardless of it's horror and unthinkable deaths.
Send humanitarian aid, send rebels weapons to allow them a defense, send them gas masks, but, don't send them bombs and US soldiers, all will regret it.
We don't belong in Syria.
We never did.
