BBC journalist Jeremy Bowen was shot in the head and leg today as demonstrations in Egypt ended in bloodshed.

He was wounded as tens of thousands of people took to the streets over the ousting of president Mohammed Morsi by the military.

Islamist leaders had called for a day of rage across the country after a military coup deposed Egypt’s first democratically elected leader.

This whole idea that Egypt is Western friendly,is pushed by channels like the BBC.They probably send the poor guy over there,even though the whole area should be cordoned off as a no go zone.

Rage Day... as if they really needed another reason to go nuts. If this catches on, it could be the Islamic version of Thanksgiving.

When the people that hate you are doing the heavy lifting of killing themselves for you, there’s no reason to intervene on anyone’s behalf. This is a national popcorn moment.

Roger that. When I was in the military, they said, lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way. This is one of those times to get the hell out of the way.

Give the guy a break.

He's probably working his butt off trying to find somebody willing to say something nice about Obama!

True....I have no sympathy for these misery ghouls who think the badge of “Journalist” should protect them as if they were miles above the fray. He will be summarily lauded by his peers because now he has the scars of that oh so noble profession (I think I just yakked a little in my throat).

Well, I once had a "I'm extremely peeved" day but it wasn't anywhere near a rage.

HUGH HEWITT INTERVIEWED FRANK GAFFNEY OF THE CENTER FOR SECURITY POLICY WHEN THE PROTESTS IN EGYPT WERE STILL GOING ON AND MORSI WAS STILL IN POWER.

He finally asked Gaffney if he had any predictions regarding the outcome of the protests. He only had a few seconds to respond before time was up...

Here was his response:

Imagine what it will be like here in the US with both sides so heavily armed.

Now, while I am not an artist, let me paint a little picture for you so that you can see what you have started. For you are the ones who started it and you are the only ones that can prevent it. There is not one militia leader, not one preacher, not one gun rights advocate alive than can stop the tide that is swelling, not one, not one group. You have started a massive tide of resentment, fright, and spine stiffening resolve.

Farmer by day, warrior by night. Cop by night, warrior by day.

The Constitution/Freedom haters' attacks on the Second Amendment is the catalysts for a rebellion. What will it look like? How will it be fought?

You do not have to be a historian to know how to win the rebellion that may have already started. You don't have to study how the founding fathers beat the British, for the Viet Cong used exactly the same techniques. They were common working folk during the day and warriors at night. They formed into small local groups that had larger group and regional ties, but for the most part acted independently, setting their own targets and schedules. But they were working to achieve the regional agenda, the goal of independence.

Now, I know they were communist, and I know that this time the g0vt are the communist, but they fought to the point where the United States of America surrendered. I am no way suggesting we become communist. That is the g0vt we are rebelling against. Do we go head to head in the streets? No., Look at Syria., Do you think the g0vt of barak hussien obama is going to play any less viciously? No, we will not go head to head., What we will do is learn from the two recent fights where large armies, the US and the Russians, had to surrender; Vietnam and Afghanistan.

The Cong drove the US to the surrender table by being workers by day and warriors by night. The Afgans beat the Russians out of their country by exactly the same methods. Where did their leaders learn these methods? They did study history and they followed the basic principals of our founding fathers; they were farmers and shop keepers by day and warriors by night. They, our founding fathers, took a little time off from planting and, hiding behind trees, ambushed the enemy, then took off like smart fellows to return to their chores, blend in with the people, and to fight another day.

You see, US freedom fighters, rebels if you will, are not going to put on uniforms., They are not going to fight the military of obama, the UN, and God only knows who else obama will bring in, head to head in the streets. No, they are going to be as invisible as possible: the gal who serves them coffee at the local caféé; the guy who fills their tanks with gas, checks their oil and laughs at their jokes; they are the ones that at night look thru the scope of a .308. Others will be using the .50 Cal. This is going to be a long fight. Freedom, God willing and with His help, will win., But we want the infrastructure to remain so that after it is almost over, focus can be on building a federation of states., This federation will have no central command and a Constitution that learns from the mistakes that have been made in this Republic... a federation that does not shield politician... a federation that makes it the death penalty for corrupt politicians.

You liberal linguine -spined leftists have started this. There is no reason the rebels should compromise. You have started it and more and more each day are committing to finishing it. You and only you can get your lackeys in g0vernment to reverse enough laws to prevent the oncoming rebellion. Where are you going to get your food? Where are you going to get your fuel for heat? Where are you going to work? Where are you going to run? How are you going to fight back?

Face it..., you pushed to hard..., you messed up. Now surrender. Admit defeat, and work to calm those 4,000,000 down. Just don't wait too long. Start today.

From Mao’s book on protracted war:

THE THREE STAGES OF THE PROTRACTED WAR

35. Since the Sino-Japanese war is a protracted one and final victory will belong to China, it can reasonably be assumed that this protracted war will pass through three stages.

The first stage covers the period of the enemy’s strategic offensive and our strategic defensive.

The second stage will be the period of the enemy’s strategic consolidation and our preparation for the counter-offensive.

The third stage will be the period of our strategic counter-offensive and the enemy’s strategic retreat.

It is impossible to predict the concrete situation in the three stages, but certain main trends in the war may be pointed out in the light of present conditions. The objective course of events will be exceedingly rich and varied, with many twists and turns, and nobody can cast a horoscope for the Sino-Japanese war; nevertheless it is necessary for the strategic direction of the war to make a rough sketch of its trends. Although our sketch may not be in full accord with the subsequent facts and will be amended by them, it is still necessary to make it in order to give firm and purposeful strategic direction to the protracted war.
