Goes on like wildfire protest against America. After the murder of the American ambassador, Chris Stevens, Libya, is still the controversial film, The Innocence of Muslim, to unleash the anger in the Arab world. Egypt was the scene of more protests at this time, after those of Tuesday evening. CNN reported that there were at least 13 wounded in Cairo, where about 500 demonstrators protested in front of the U.S. embassy. Twelve people were arrested.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called "unacceptable" violence unleashed by the anti-Islam film and stressed that the United States had nothing to do with the film. "I think the violence - said Clinton in a live TV - has no place in religion and is definitely not a way to honor the religion."
Meanwhile, the White House announced that U.S. President Barack Obama, concerned about the riots in progress, has called on the leaders of Libya and Egypt to discuss their cooperation in the field of security and the manifestations of the attack against the embassy Cairo . Obama called on Libya to cooperate with Washington to be identified because "the perpetrators of this attack and bring them to justice" and insisted on '"the importance that Egypt take its commitment to cooperate with the United States in to secure the premises and the U.S. diplomatic.

After the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi - orchestrated, it seems, the terrorist network al-Qaeda - which resulted in the death not only of Ambassador Stevens but three other members of the U.S. diplomatic mission, America has implemented the his answer. Sending two destroyers U.S. military towards the Libyan coast: one, the USS Laboon, has moved off the coast, while the USS McFaul should be there in a few days. The vessels, which carry Tomahawk missiles and a crew of 300 people, has not been assigned a specific mission: they were prepared "as a preventive measure."

Within hours, I had been also announced the deployment in Libya, in Tripoli, a unit of 50 marines trained for anti-terrorist duties, from their base in Rota, Spain.
After the attack two days ago, the U.S. has made the decision to evacuate all diplomatic staff in Libya, leaving only an emergency unit at the embassy in Tripoli. In addition, 200 marines are on their way to enhance the security of diplomatic missions in Tripoli and Benghazi. Soon, also, U.S. drone could fly over Libya in search of fields linked jihadist attack.

But some, like Republican Romney believes that the act is in a "weak reaction".
