I wouldn't.

He did nothing for the slain Americans in Benghazi after a year. Why are doing this for non-Americans?

It's about the advancement of the Muslim Brotherhood. It explains Egypt. It explains Libya. It explains why nothing has been done regarding Benghazi. It explains Syria.

It's called defense people.

The US is the aggressor here. You attack a country and you would expect that country to defend itself as well as its allies coming to their aid.
They're not talking about defense. They're talking about retaliation.
