Is Ann Coulter offensive?

Of course she is. She is also right that Syria has defacto declared war on the Danes and we are required, by the NATO treaty, to do something about it. Ann is a political pundit and her schtick is to be outlandish. Many find that offensive. Those few of us left with a sense of humor find her at her funniest (just like a lot of funny leftists) when she makes a good point in an over the top manner. If you are a sensitive Muslim or Arab you won't want to read the whole post so I will give you the non-offensive good point she makes toward the end of her "I'll show you offensive" rant this week.

Muslims in Syria torched the Danish Embassy a few weeks ago, burning it to the ground. According to everyone, the Syrian government was behind the attack – the prime minister of Denmark, Condoleezza Rice and White House spokesman Scott McClellan. I think even the gals on "The View" have acknowledged that Damascus was behind this one.

McClellan said: "We will hold Syria responsible for such violent demonstrations since they do not take place in that country without government knowledge and support."

We are signatories to a treaty that requires us to do more than "hold Syria responsible" for this attack. Syria has staged a state-sponsored attack on our NATO partner on Danish soil, the Danish Embassy. According to the terms of the NATO treaty, the United States and most of Europe have an obligation to go to war with Syria.
