The BBC reporter (Jeremy Bowen) got some buckshot in the head and on his legs (superficial wounds).

The Army is denying they shot at the Muslim Brotherhood mob and the head of the Muslim Brotherhood is free to incite the crowds to action.

Those are not good signs.

One Islamofascist faction against another. Sounds like a power struggle to me. No matter who wins and who loses, Iran ultimately wins this one.

Well, I know people in the Egyptian military and Americans who have trained them.

The Egyptian military is prepared for this. After seeing the HUGE outpouring and demonstrations against Morsi, they acted and are doing so with the backing of the people.

If Morsi's supporters and the Muslim Brotherhood push them...they will absolutely eradicate them. They will not play "footsies" with them or try to have ROEs that attempt to "make friends."

They know what is at stake, and saw where it was going. Morsi was supporting Al Quida and the Al Quida rebeles in Syria and Libya. He was closing ranks with Hamas and preparing for war with Israel.

The Egyptian military and most people in Egypt do not want to go there, and will not go there. They know what it is likely to mean. They will fight the Islamic extremists and Muslim Bortherhood in Egypt first, and eradicate them before they let that happen.

This is what we are seeing in Egypt...and it is likely that these Islamic extremists will push it to a fight...one they will lose becuase I do not believe the Egyptian military will fight with kid gloves or with one armed tied behind their back.

A strong, in your face, and abject example needs to be made of these radical terrorists and Egypt has the means, and I believe the will, to do so. I pray they do...and set Obama and his cohorts, abettors, and handlers back by decades and give us time to regroup here and show them all the door ourselves.

Only 3?? Shucks, oh well!! its a start.

By the way the reporter did not get superficial Buckshot wounds in the head and legs. Buckshot does not make superficial wounds. Bird shot does if you are far enough away.

Perhaps that is what he was saying “bird shot” and I should have listened more closely when they interviewed him earlier..

Three very disappointed ambassadors for the religion of hate. No 72 virgins, unless they are very bad nuns.

About a week after the attack the Onion did a piece about the 911 terrorists finding themselves in the afterlife. Dateline Hell.

Hmmm...

Does the Egyptian army use shotguns for crowd control or did the Muslim Brotherhood actually fire the shots?

Last I looked, the Egyptian army used AR variants.

I’m still a little cynical about the BBC reporters observations but he said he saw soliders shooting at the crowd after they fired shots in the air.....he used the words...
“leveling their weapons” and “shooting”. Were they MB in military uniforms maybe “moles” who were supposed to shoot...pure wild speculation on my part???????

He did not describe the weapons they used, but noted after the shooting continued for a time, they switched to using tear gas.

Heavy pressure on the Egyptian military from the Obama regime to treat the Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi with kid gloves.

Walid Shoebat surmises that Morsi was directly involved with Obama on the contrived attack on Benghazi as a rise to arrange a trade for the blind sheikh.

Keep in mind that the Egyptian Army was caught between a rock and a hard place. If they had not intervened, and the protests continued, Morsi would have ordered them to suppress the protests. One way or another, they were going to be involved. They chose to side with the protesters.

I wonder where the reports are about anti-Morsi protesters being raped and/or killed by muzzies? Or is it not politically correct to report such things? Wouldn’t want to confuse the readers with what the reporters want them to think, eh?

When the islamic mullahs took over Iran , those peaceful men of religion ordered thousands of Iranians murdered .

The Egyptian Army deposing crazed muslim leaders is good news;now if the Turkish Army would follow suit.

Overall the world was safer when a strong mostly secular leaders ruled Iran,Egypt,Libya,Iraq,Turkey,etc.Even Krazy Khaddafi was less of a threat than a Muslim Brotherhood Libya.

Religious and tribal fanatics in positions of power always cause great suffering and bloodshed.

By the way,I classify Marxist-Leninist Communism as a form of religion ,but where the Ideal State is worshipped along with its prophets.

I believe we have a Muslim Brotherhood sleeper agent occupying the American presidency.

Are there degrees of savagery? Is this bunch better savages than the others? They both murder, rape, steal, yell and chop heads.

There is no way democracy can come to a country like that. The only thing that works is an iron-fisted dictatorship that keeps the savages from acting out all their savagery.

They did indeed hit more. Something like 69 were reported wounded. Sounded to me like the Army was aiming low so the wounded could crawl off under their own power. And the Egyptian Army does indeed have birdshot style anti personnel rounds such that it might not have required 69 actual shots. As soon as rioters start rubbing their sore spots they lose interest in bellyaching about pointless problems——amazing how that works.

Yawn...

The MB is humiliating itself by being aggressive while only mustering 2,000 demonstrators.

In contrast, the protests to oust Morsi drew 22 Million protesters!

A few deaths from such a small demonstration will be dismissed out of hand by the Egyptian populace.

Egyptians don’t have the Western mentality of “any death is a big deal.”

True. 00 buckshot pellets are .32 caliber size. there are 9 pellets per cartridge. If the BBC guy got hit with that he wouldn't be conscious enough to talk about it. .04 buck or #7 birdshot is more likely, the latter being popular for crowd control.

Buckshot does not make superficial wounds. Bird shot does if you are far enough away.

It all depends on the range, whether the shot skipped off of something, and other factors we are not aware of. Either can leave superficial wounds or kill, depending on how far away you are.
