God Bless the Military.
Or Alla if you will.

The Muslim Brotherhood has learned the lessons of Pallywood well: Claim massive casualties, recycle the same images of dead bodies over and over, import dead bodies from other places (stealing them from morgues, moving the dead AFTER they have been photographed) faking dead bodies later to be mysteriously “resurrected” and running around at protests and dressing up protesters in “injured” garb and splashing them with fake blood.

The media has to be vigilant (ha!) about doing actual legwork and reporting, to make sure they’re not being snookered. But, we know that the media has an agenda of a Muslim dominated Egyptian state which will move to destroy Israel, so I don’t hold out much hope for them to get the reporting right.

Presumably there aren’t enough Jews left in Egypt, so they go for the next-best…..

This is not going to turn out well.

Hand grooming a successor to Mubarek might have been the best option as Egypt is not ready for the only form of democracy that works, one based on a secular society.

Just like the Iran of thirty-five years ago so may go Egypt.

Well, you young’ns can clean up the mess as I’m much too tired…

Doesn’t Mrs. Huma Weiner have a full family of MB members in high places? Was she instrumental in pushing the quick elections after disposing of Mubarak? Surely she knew all along they would go full Sharia, as most of us believed.

Did Obama/Clinton have an end game in mind, or is this it? Manufactured crisis seems to be the theme of this administration.

There were reports of 400 US forces trained in riot control being sent to Egypt maybe may / June.

It received little msm or blog coverage. Just looking it up I found it mentioned on a site called Capitalist Preservation’ & through the interpretations of whom / why it states they are from Fort Hood .
So is this what they are doing there – training riot control for ME militaries? Is that what sent Nidal over the edge?

Ouch.

[…] Legal Insurrection has a live-tweet of the violence in Egypt, including attacks on Christians and churches because… you know …  if Muslims are angry at other Muslims they’ll attack the Jews or the Christians. […]
