Why is this not the top story on CNN/FOX, and every other station. Protestors have breached the walls of an American Embassy in the Middle East!

Are all of the Americans safe?

Does anyone else see shades of Tehran? This should be a huge deal

More from CNN (http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2012/09/11/warning-shots-fired-as-cairo-protesters-storm-u-s-embassy-walls/):
The incident prompted U.S. security guards to fire off a volley of warning shots as a large crowd gathered outside, apparently upset about the production of a Dutch film thought to insult the Prophet Mohammed, said CNN producer Mohammed Fahmy, who was on the scene.

An embassy operator told CNN that the facility had been cleared of diplomatic personnel earlier Tuesday, ahead of the apparent threat,

“...A U.S. embassy official had no immediate comment on the protesters’ actions but the embassy had put out a statement earlier on Tuesday condemning those who hurt the religious feelings of Muslims or followers of any other religions.”

I thought this quote from the report was quite interesting. Why on earth do should we have to be concerned with the Muslim’s feelings when they are systematically exterminating the Christians living in Egypt (and elsewhere)? Ridiculous to the point of being criminal.

It was not immediately clear which film angered protesters.

So, we apologized already even without knowing what we're apologizing for?

And so what have we done ... we put out a statement before the attack condemning those who hurt Muslim feelings. This sounds like another Obama apology.

It’s been a while since I’ve been to our embassy in Cairo. It was like a fortress in 1997, and I can only imagine that they’ve beefed it up significantly since 9/11. Attackers are lucky the Marines didn’t blow their heads off.

“Who cares about the King Tut relics or the pyramids or Sphinx? Let the world see who these thugs really are.”

I do. These are treasure irreplaceable and shouldn’t be destroyed just to “prove” what everyone knows. That the infestation of Moslems in Egypt that occurred thousands of years after those were created, is an ongoing tragedy. Islam hadnt even been invented yet when those pyramids were built.

The current inhabitants of Egypt are not the people who built those amazing structures. This is exactly why we buit neutron bombs. And im 100% serious. Wipes out the infestation, and leaves the buildings intact. This should be considered. Ditto for Mecca. There no reason to destroy these old buildings,,they didn’t do anything wrong.

No, they have not. According to the Department of State, embassies are not sovereign territories and remain the territory of the host state. However, an embassy does represent a sovereign state and as such this outrage does represent an attack on the United States according to international agreement.

And if we had a leader with cojones, we'd be having a short and one-sided conversation with the Egyptian Ambassador at this very moment.

On September 11th, Obama refuses to meet with Netanyahu, and the people Obama supported stormed the American embassy in Egypt, burned the flag, and ran up a black moslem flag.

Point being we have every right to retaliate as what has happened is an attack, in a very legal sense, on the United States.

Also, if we had a leader with cojones, it would be pointed out to said Ambassador that this day on the calendar ought to be a particularly bad day to screw around with the United States.

Clearly it is a double headed attack on western man. Obama blows off Bibi... and is probably using the Egyptian noise to overshadow his anti western man activities.

I am sure that his muslim brethren are celebrating their leader embarrassing Bibi at the UN!
