Obama To Send U.S. Troops To Egypt To Suppress Riots Against Muslim Brotherhood Regime

There's one sure thing about President Obama that you can always take to the bank. He will go to any lengths to install, fund, protect and defend autocratic Muslim Brotherhood regimes.

In Egypt, the increasingly totalitarian Muslim Brotherhood regime under Mohammed Morsi is encountering more and more protests from what's left of the pro-democracy factions, and a major crackdown is imminent, complete with mobs of regime supporting thugs that President Obama found so abhorrent back in the Mubarak era.

Only this time, President Obama is prepared to send U.S. troops with riot training into the middle of this festering cauldron to risk their lives to protect the Islamist regime:

(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.

Notice the spin here, that the troops are planning for "the possibility of protecting the country's border with Israel."

That's how the Obama regime might sell it, with the side benefit for them of raising anger towards Israel from the usual low information voters. But the truth of the matter is that Israel has never requested or needed U.S. troops to protect its borders, its own military being more than equal to that task. And the Israelis, in any event, have already finished their security fence on the Egyptian border.

This is being done to protect Egypt's Islamist regime.

In a vicious bit of irony, the training is being held at Fort Hood of the murders of U.S. troops by Islamist jihadi Major Nidal Hasan.

Actually no... The troops are being deployed to Sinai as part of the long standing force enforcing the Egypt-Israel peace accords.

You're incorrect.

(a)The troops you refer to were removed long ago at Egypt's insistence.That's why Israel rushed completion of its border fence with Sinai.

(b) The U.SA. troops are receiving RIOT TRAINING and training in urban combat,something that's unnecessary for troops involved in a peace keeping mission. Especially in a deseert area like Sinai.

Nice try.

Nope. They're still there as 'Task Force Sinai' along with Aussies, Canadians, Dutch, etc.

Sinai isn't all desert, there's some built up areas. They can be given training for something they aren't planning on doing but is good to have the capability just in case.

And I'm no fan of Dear Leader.

I'm a bit stunned and puzzled by this because it's so politically risky. The risk factor is off the charts and any potential rewards miniscule.

I don't doubt Obama's ideological fanaticism but even Alinsky would counsel this to be a deeply foolish move.

If riots erupt, I see no way to 'sell' this to Obama's base, no way for the MSM to spin this, American troops in Egypt, beating back pro-democracy demonstrators and protestors?

Rob said...

I stand corrected Unknown. My apologies for the earlier sark.

Apparently there are still 40 US soldiers stationed there, although they seem to be more of a recon and communications unit rather than anything charged with actually protecting any borders.

I seem to have confused them with the peacekeeping forces that were assigned to the Rafah Crossing in Gaza. Those forces, primarily EU troops, ran for the Israeli border when Hamas took over and never returned.

The only part of Sinai's border with Israel that's really built up is Gaza, and the Israelis have that area as well as the rest of the Sinai border fenced.

I doubt these troops at Fort Hood are slated to be part of any peacekeeping force if they're being trained in riot control and urban warfare.

Obama doesn't have to sell anything to anyone anymore.

He's been re-elected and as he famously said, he now has more 'flexibiity'.
