Oh, I do agree it's not and it was off topic there to bring into it...but as false flags go? That one's too provably false in every way to label that way to just let go without comment. Aside from that, my Father was out serving with some of the men who were in that "engagement" years afterward. Navy career guys are a strange breed....but they are a gossipy breed too. It wouldn't have been secret for long ..and wasn't for that matter. One big screw up and fur ball that got played to field goal....in a losing game as it happens.
Fortunately in Egypt it's a lot more clear cut and we should cut OUT. I mean this is Egyptian sorting out issues with other Egyptians (Or close enough with the Muslim Brotherhood and their motley crew) and this seemingly insane 'need' people have for getting into the middle of other people's fights ...from the school yard to the global stage ...never solves or ends anything. It just postpones it and makes it worse.
So heck.. I'd say let them sort it all out and it may not even be a REAL bad idea to keep non-essential people out of Egypt for quite a while. Benghazi hurt real real bad and it showed the world's worst people that it CAN be done and it CAN be gotten away with. It'll happen again now and pray it's not a full blown and staffed Embassy, I'd say.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

frazzle you're spot on but as Im sure you are aware of you're beating a dead horse.
It's ok for a westerner to sit there in their glass houses and throw stones at those they think are evil because their Zionist propped up government and media told them so. Even if you mention that their country is playing a direct hand in these affairs in other countries, and are probably more liable than the actual group/persons they believe responsible, you will be quickly dismissed and told that they are sick of hearing that, and to stick to the point, eg that is way too much for their brain to compute and they refuse to take any blame whatsoever, "we're here to bash others how dare you turn it back on me",,,,typical lame western brain-washing sheeple syndrome. pffft
I noticed he missed the point entirely about sharia law, they haven't ever read anything about what sharia law really is apart from what they read in the news, funny that I don't remember Mohommed ever speaking to the media, but oh who are we to point that out, we're just trying to change the subject off "Egypt". Oh dear, the insanity, and some of them wonder how their country came to be the most treacherous on earth. My heads spinning even just contemplating being on that miserable wavelength.

You're an idiot if you think we're all Americans on this thread or ATS in general.
My country is not directly involved with any of the US's conflicts. And pretty much everybody I know is opposed to the current wars in Iraq and Afghan. We all marched against the looming Iraq war in 2003...150,000 of us.
How do you know what I have or haven't read about Sharia Law? I'll tell you....you don't know, so quit making assumptions.
