Egypt and Libya pull the bull's balls.....

If you want a sure fire way to get your ass kicked...go ahead and find a bull and pull on his nuts...just try it, they don't like it one bit so when you are getting curb stomped and gored by it after it turns around and runs over you don't be surprised.

You pulled its balls, didn't you?
Yesterday mobs in both Egypt and Libya attacked our embassies and consulates and in the case of Libya, killed our ambassador and 3 other US personnel.

Congratulations folks in the mob....you just pulled the bull's balls.

This was all over a movie someone in Hollywood made that apparently makes fun of the Islamic prophet Mohammed.  So much for the "hope" and "change" the "Arab Spring" was supposed to bring to the oppressed people of these countries.  I didn't like Khadaffi (obviously you know this unless you are new around these parts) but dammit, our embassies never got attacked when he was in charge.  But now, we have governments that cannot provide security for our diplomatic missions...missions that have provided not only humanitarian but also military support (in the case of the Libyans) for their movements.   All I have seen is that the Libyan security forces stood up and then down against the mob, have not heard or read anything about Egypt even doing anything to stop them.

About that ball pulling....

Just to remind you folks in Tripoli (and other places like Benghazi where the rioting occurred) that it just wasn't a coincidence that your name appears in the lines of the Marine Hymn....

...good idea 200 years ago and still a good one today.

Not that I am necessarily condoning military action, just saying when American interests and especially lives are at risk I am a firm believer that our government, via the military, should take every possible precaution, measure and action to do what is needed to secure those interests and save lives.

And to our congress and senate mulling over BILLIONS of dollars in financial and humanitarian aid to these countries while our own deficit climbs....well, you know where I am going with this....

Pull all our troops out of these dung holes and give Bengazi the Truman solution of August 1945
