So this morning a bunch of miscreants invaded sovereign US soil. The knocked down a wall, took down the flag and burned it. The response by the embassy security detail was how shall we say, lacking.
Linoge I think was onto something when he said the embassy boss didn’t want to standing in front of a board trying to explain fatalities. This is why I probably am not, and will never be an overseas ambassador. My solution would match the below.
Childers in Rules of Engagement had the right idea. (Sorry for the music going over top).
Not only did he defend the sovereign US soil, he retrieved and protected the American flag. The embassy is US soil folks. For those who do not understand what I am saying, this was equivalent to them invading somewhere in the states. If someone breaks into your house, you can shoot the bastards, and in this case people breaking into your house is the equivalent to an act of war.
So here’s a news flash to the US Egyptian Embassy, next time do your freaking job, defend the embassy, the flag, and do not apologize for their aggression! Then again we have a president who supports the Muslim Brotherhood so what should we expect? I wouldn’t be surprised if the embassy was told to let them be run over. Heaven forbid we actually defend America.
I know every last Marine in that embassy is feeling sick because they were prevented from doing what they’ve been trained to do. Pardon me while I go watch a movie now.
