Protesters storm U.S. Embassy in Cairo

http://www.cnn.com/2012/09/11/world/...html?hpt=hp_t1

I suppose it's a good thing that "it doesn't have to be a good thing for us"....

Cairo (CNN) -- Angry protesters climbed the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo on Tuesday and hauled down the American flag, replacing it with a black standard with Islamic emblems, apparently in protest of the production of a film thought to insult the Prophet Mohammed.

The incident prompted a volley of warning shots to be fired as a large crowd gathered outside, said CNN producer Mohammed Fahmy, who was on the scene.

The replacement flag read, "There is no God but Allah and Mohammad is his messenger."

Others expressed more general grievances about U.S. policy, chanting anti-American slogans and holding up bits of a shredded American flag to television camera crews in front of the embassy.

An embassy operator told CNN that the facility had been cleared of diplomatic personnel earlier Tuesday, ahead of the apparent threat, while Egyptian riot police were called to help secure the area.

The U.S. Embassy said in a statement Tuesday that it "condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims -- as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions."

"Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy," the statement said. "We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others."

The incident occurred on the 11th anniversary of the September 11 attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania, as crowds gathered in somber remembrance of the nearly 3,000 people killed that day.

It is not clear which film upset the protesters in Cairo.

In 2008, an anti-Muslim and anti-immigration parliamentarian from The Netherlands sparked international outcry when he produced a film that portrayed Islam as a violent religion.

Geert Wilders' film "Fitna," which he released online, featured images of terrorist acts superimposed over verses from the Quran.

Jesus.

What's the standard operating procedure for embassies? If you feel threatened, you can retaliate with your own firepower, right?

I just saw this article on Yahoo. I wonder what film seems to be the cause of this, or if there even is a "film".

Knowing these fanatics, the film may not even exist.

Most of the riots about the Danish cartoon took place without most of the people ever seeing it. They were just told.

This was my initial thought when reading the article.

Some of these 3rd world country types are just too stupid to deal with.

Right. Think, for instance, how of Americans would react seeing Iranian guards fire on Americans on Fox News, even if they were storming the Iranian embassy wanting blood.

What's the phrase... proportional response.

If a bunch of crazy maniacs are "just" screwing with the flag, as opposed to actually attacking American personnel... I don't know.

This would be the same movie that the Obama administration condemned today as “misguided individuals [trying] to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.”....

For Gods Sake this asswipe has no spine.

So.....you don't know anything about this movie (if it does exist) and don't know how offensive it may have been, yet you want to Crucify Obama over a statement promoting tolerance anyway?

Makes sense i suppose.

Pretty much I give a damn about the "feelings" of the Muslims. The security of our embassy trumps some butthurt they feel. They can go pound sand for all I'd give a shit.
