Strong response coming from the WH ...

"Please stop doing that and give us our flags back ... please."

But didn’t the mere presence of Obama in Egypt in 2009 fix all these problems?

Got to love those zany Egyptians. Invade the US embassy because the Dutch made a movie they don’t like.

A squadron of Marines ascended to the roof and fired shots at the area where the protesters had been taking down the flag. Nobody was injured, however, because the protesters had already gone home hours before. President Obama blamed their absence on Bush for throwing his timing off.

But we are their friends. We scaled back our joint military exercises with Israel and are going to do joint military exercises with Egypt instead.

Everyone knew this Arab Spring would end badly for US.

Didn't Marx say the cliche: history repeats itself, once as a tragedy and once as a comedy.

Jimmy Carter was the tragedy and The Marxist Obama is clearly the comedy.

So how did we respond? Did we condemn the invasion of sovereign US soil and the destruction of our property and flag. Uh...no.

The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims...We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of other

Hurt the religious beliefs of others? What does that even mean?

Maybe our embassy staffers are very busy now, destroying, shredding and burning classified documents, computers, Obama portraits, etc. But wait, it’s already “Miller Time” in Cairo.

The man who claims to be a lifelong Christian also claims to hold a special, unique, connection with the muslim world. Why is that?

It's a Dutch production company, but the movie is being produced by U.S. based Coptic Christian Egyptians according to this article:

Cairo Protesters

Check out this description of the protesters: "The AP says the protesters were largely ultra-conservative Islamists."

Don't they mean radical Islamists?

Storm The Embassy-Stray Cats

Fifteen men taken captive in a hostile, foreign land
Scorchin’ sun beaming down onto miles and miles of sand
A Mideast country being ruled by a man who thinks it’s fun
To hold our people in return for a Shah that’s on the run

I think it’s funny
Freedom takes money

It’s a heartache and it’s hard luck
Well, that’s tough shit, man, it’s no fun
Storm the Iranian embassy
Before they start shooting down you and me

Scores of suits in control of the diplomatic-ness
While the nations of the world look on and can’t care less
The Soviet Union won’t agree to an economic plan
And then they laugh and march their troops into Afghanistan

Orders from Moscow
Invade Tehran now

It’s a heartache and it’s hard luck
Well, that’s tough shit, man, it’s no fun
Storm the Iranian embassy
Before they start shooting at you and me, hey

A nation worries and reads the papers
Hoping that no one has died
Hearing rumors that the hostages
Will soon be tried as spies

Demonstrations on the street
Saying that the end is near
The man from the New York Times on vacation
Wants to know what’s happened here

Aggressive acts now
We want the best now
Fifteen moms crying
Is my son dying?

It’s a heartache and it’s hard luck
Well, that’s tough shit, man, it’s no fun
Storm the Iranian embassy
Before they start shooting at you and me

But the editor told them that wouldn't fly either.

“Strong response coming from the WH ...
“Please stop doing that and give us our flags back ... please.” “


IMO these are the flags the WH wants flying over the WH.

Remember how they removed the flag from the DOJ web site and replaced with with their black, swat looking crap.

From the Al-Reuters article on Drudge:

“We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others,” the U.S. embassy said in its statement.

One slogan scrawled on the walls of the embassy, a fortress-like structure that is near Tahrir Square where Egyptians revolted against Mubarak, said: “If your freedom of speech has no limits, may you accept our freedom of action.”
