The U.S. supported the removal of the last regime in Egypt and now we have militant Muslims storming the U.S. embassy and raising black flags. With American help, these very militants were freed from the tyranny of Mubarak -- and now this? Can the U.S. ever win in the Middle East?

CNN.COM reports:
Angry protesters climbed the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo on Tuesday and hauled down the American flag.

    The best option is for us to get the hell out of the middle east, and to stay out! Following that would be to close our borders to ANY travel FROM the middle east. Complete quarantine. Nobody in, nobody out--at least not insofar as we're concerned. Fundamentalist Islam should be seen as the contagion it is, and it should be treated as such.

    [..]Just before midnight on September 5, 2007, four F-15s and four F-16s took off from Israeli Air Force bases. Using standard electronic scrambling tools, the Israelis blinded Syria’s air-defense system. Sometime between 12:40 and 12:53 A.M., the pilots indicated that seventeen tons of explosives had been dropped on their target. Syria has consistently denied that the site was a nuclear reactor.

    Syria funds Hezbollocks which attacks Israel.

    No,You asked when Syria attacked and I gave you 4 times.

    The Islamic Hezbollock terr attacks are a daily event, funded and supplied by Syria.

    It is true and I will stick with it.

    If we go by that logic then all previous attacks throughout the world are fodder for retaliation.

    Lets try something more current.

    Keep out of science fiction. There is no such thing as Occupied Palestine.
    Besides there is no attacks in which the Libyans and Egyptians could be retaliating from. We never attacked them and Obama helped both those govts obtain power.

    I was not talking about the geographic location for the mythical Occupied Palestine. I said it does not exist on any continent. Gaza is controlled by Hamas and not Israel, which means it is not occupied.

    The question deals with Cairo which means that it is another Epic Fail for you. Both with your content and what passes for a sense of humor in your warped world view.

    Killing babies is not funny. Brown or otherwise,

    Start at home, the BIBLE is "Riddled" (don't take too literally) with atrocities too.
    The Qur'an also talks quite a bit about OT prophets & Jesus.
    Start on the CAUSE first, working on the EFFECT only make things worse.
    Matthew 7:1, John 8:7 & Surah 6:108 speak the same thing, 'tis written,
    READ THEM if you DOUBT, Buddha spoke against that,
    thus a TRINITY of Faiths concur.

    Big difference with stories in the bible from teaching to kill others that is a fact. Read the Quran many verses about killing and how to deal with the enemy..enslavement, gee check the day to day news. No one out there rising a new Christian or Jewish army to march off to a holy war, even where they did that guess who the war was against?

    There is little proof for MOST events in those books to be real, actually hearsay. You're biased. ALL of them were not written in English anyways & with all the (biased) translations you can't take anything literally.

    Check out the first segment of the Tao (as well as Isaiah, impossible to describe something that's indescribable in the 1st place.

    Also the Qur'an is not compiled in chronological order and is actually meant to be listened (name means 'recitation') to (consult Surah 6:108, congruent with Matthew 7:1 & John 8:7 - don't judge). Regard the Torah, Gospel & Qur'an as absolutely apocryphal (unreliable), no archaeological evidence for Judaism until centuries after Exodus (even at Jericho which is known to have been inhabited for 8,000 years

    I will concede that most Muslims has deified Mohammad into a demi-god (an Idol?) but Christians have done much the same thing with Jesus too, do most Jews?

    Who wrote the account of Isa (Jesus) when he was in the desert for 40 days (& undergoing torment & sensory deprivation)? Never heard of him writing anything down (Mo' too). How can Moses write of being buried in a place no-one knows where the grave is.

    I'm (technically) an Agnostic Theist, Believe in 'God', but have no clue exactly what S/He?It (say that fast!) is, but it's a Mystery...&

Pity those who 'decided' early on, have nothing to wonder about and get impatient (& miserable to others, if not themselves) waiting for decades on end before they actually find and possibly get disappointed (punished too).

    Corrupt people of ANY stripe can readily corrupt ANY Scripture to any end.
    Good Writing but Poor Reading & Worse Speaking cause many ills.

    No Reading too, recall the Male aversion to reading maps when lost and not bothering to read directions (RTFM?) when setting up potentially dangerous contrivances?

    Psychology 101- if you worry ("Rumination") about something that's trivial long & hard enough ("Anticipatory Anxiety" & "Making a Mountain out of a Molehill") it can become a "Self-Fulfilling Prophecy".
