(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.
REPORT: US troops with riot training preparing for deployment to Egypt...
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.
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.
MFO? Egypt=Sinai? (do we still do MFO?)
Yes, we’re still part of the MFO.
This is a real test if illegal orders are given to support the Muslim Brotherhood and kill Christians.
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.
Remember Israel has a massive wall that was built a few years back.
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 cant see any reason what so ever why we would be doing that in Egypt..perhaps a little hysteria?
When did our troops become Egypt’s police force! Why not the UN? This makes no damn sense.
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.
There has to be a way to stop this misuse of our troops. Paging Ted Cruz, Rand Paul or Sarah Palin!!
From what I saw, they’re definitely prepared for anyone who dares uses oversized tennis balls against them.
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.
I think I agree.
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.
Great. Now Morsi can mow down U.S. soldiers with the tanks and fighters the U.S. gave him.
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?
it is training for riot control in US.
<< Genesis 12 >> New International Version The Call of Abram 1The Lord had said to Abram, Go from your country, your people and your fathers household to the land I will show you. 2I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. 3I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.
Considered as part of their despicable planning department. They would like nothing better than making Israel look an enemy.
