(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.

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???

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.

REPORT: US troops with riot training preparing for deployment to Egypt...

http://kdhnews.com/military/unit-undergoes-riot-training/article_e5bab498-d92c-11e2-a31c-001a4bcf6878.html

Soldiers already gained training on cultural awareness and how to work with the Egyptian government and bedouins.

“We’ve learned that in other cultures, people approach things differently and to be cautious of religion and different people’s roles in society,” Perez said. “We don’t want to offend anyone; that’s unnecessary. So we’re going through training constantly to understand how their culture works.”

WOW, idiots.

We have had troops stationed in Egypt for over 40 years.

In the Sinai, which is in Egypt.

Its all Jimmy’s fault.

We, patriotic & loyal Americans have not lost our minds. We have a crack-pot, Leftwing & compulsion driven Executive Department in Washington, that sees reality as the enemy.

Obama has shown that he is very willing to sacrifice the lives of patriotic Americans for illegal & idiotic purposes.

This would not be the first escapade in such madness on the African continent.

Protecting who against whom? That's not clear.

Riot raining makes sense though, no matter what they plan to do.

US troops guarding Egypt’s border. You couldn’t make this chit up.
America’s long national nightmare, year 5.

In other news, (AP) “Senator Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., cautioned that the highly touted agreement (to secure America’s border) had not been drafted yet, much less read by members of the Senate and their staffs.”

And moonbat senator Harry Reid renews his call for ‘up or down vote’ on the legislation.
How about getting some Egyptian boots on the ground on our border, Dingy Harry.

Good thing they are being trained in riot control because if they are attacked by an alqeda mob they will have to protect themselves. They sure ain’t gonna get any help from our side.

I'm not sure I trust the headline, but my first impression was that obama is trying to bolster his prestige somewhere...anywhere. Seems to be escalating his efforts, too.

I think the border reference is a red herring, and they’re being sent to protect the consulate. Another Benghazi at the hands of Morsi followers would expose just how stupid Obama’s foreign policy decisions have been.

Non-Muslim Americans deploying to an Islamist-controlled country where they will bust heads of Muslim rioters.

This will NOT end well.

U.S. forces are stationed in the Sinai desert between Egypt & Israel as a peacekeeping/separation force. Maybe this is were these troops are going .

I suspect there were promises made that American personnel in Egypt would be safe if Obama forked over the promised 1.3 billion. Now that they have their money, and it’s not likely they’ll be getting any more for awhile the lives of those people arent’t worth a bucket of warm spit. They’re all congratulating themselves for having pwned the Great Satan, and now it’s back to business as usual.

America’s proving that they can do communism better, and now proving they can prop up the muslim Jihad too.

What is with this rush to do everything evil on the planet?

What is with this fundamental change in America?

So if Egypt goes to war with Israel the U.S. will be fighting for Egypt? Whiskey...Tango...Foxtrot...Over?
