24. IMHO, I think that it is possible that the U.S. Embassy in Egypt knew that something bad was

about to go down, and was trying to defuse the situation so that U.S. interests and citizens would have some time to protect themselves.

I recall reading today, somewhere, that the trailer to this ugly film was broadcast on Libyan TV and elsewhere in N. Africa yesterday. I hope that I'm wrong, but if I'm right, some organization was using it to fire people up. Well, they succeeded.

I hope that all U.S. citizens, as well as citizens of our NATO allies, get the hell out of N. Africa and the Middle East by noon Friday, when many followers of Islam will go to their weekly service. Undoubtedly, there will be unscrupulous religious leaders who will try to incite violence. In fact, I also read that religious leaders in Egypt were calling for a million-man march in Cairo on Friday. Goody.

But you know who will suffer? Our troops in Afghanistan. This trailer will make it to Afghanistan, if it already hasn't, and will just make the bad situation there worse. Burning Korans and allegations that they were flushed down the toilet only brought attacks on our troops. Think what this film trailer will do.

This whole mess may end up very, very badly indeed, and there are many extremist folks from various religions who will be responsible.

On edit: spelling, and adding this explanation.
