(KCEN) -- A group of soldiers are preparing for their deployment to Egypt with riot training on post.
They're planning ahead for violent protests or riots and the possibility of protecting the country's border with Israel.
Soldiers encountered Molotov cocktails and other dangerous items in the training.
Lt. Matthew Wilkinson says, "Just what I've seen over the course of the past week than we were a week ago."
PFC Perez Alexander says, "We want to be as professional as possible... Know what we're doing."
They wrap up training today before preparing to ship out in the near future.
video at link shows training at Ft. Hood.
Have we lost our minds?
seems sketchy to me, but there’s the story, such as it is.
This can’t be happening.
We have to protect the muslim brotherhood.
I no longer back the military actions of this country. We are now allying ourselves withe the Taliban, al Qaeda and islamofascists
I alway however back our guys.
ah, but in which direction?
Is someone about to release another video offending the muzzi’s?
I couldnt get to the link...the story is suspect though. This is standard training for embassy gaurds, and we do have an embassy there.
Story link is still good.
...Odungo’s way of “making it hurt”, spend 100 million on vacation while furloughing people at WR medical center...once again the muslim strikes from within, the POS needs to be removed!
Let allah sort them out.
Is Obama intentionally trying to kill off our patriotic soldiers to lessen the opposition to his agency (IRS, NSA, Homland Security, etc) armies to finish out his coup de grace?
Looks that way.
Why is America protecting those who crucify Christians
and lob rockets at Jews, as they enslave Egypt?
Is it not enough that US taxpayer money goes there
by the gout, as Americans are sequestered???
Does Obama actually want MORE Benghazi incidents?
Unless they will be guarding our embassy, I can’t imagine why they would be sent there.
At Fort Hood we used to spend a week twice a tear in riot control training. I think it was called Operation Garden Plot.
given the administration’s story about Benghazi being some sort of “uprising”, it would seem appropriate that they would train for riot control.

Soldiers already gained training on cultural awareness and how to work with the Egyptian government and bedouins.
Weve learned that in other cultures, people approach things differently and to be cautious of religion and different peoples roles in society, Perez said. We dont want to offend anyone; thats unnecessary. So were going through training constantly to understand how their culture works.
We have had troops stationed in Egypt for over 40 years.
In the Sinai, which is in Egypt.
Its all Jimmy’s fault.
