Marines Put On Standby to Respond to Egypt Unrest

Marines at bases in Spain and Italy were poised Tuesday for the possibility of rushing to Cairo to protect or evacuate U.S. citizens and the U.S. Embassy amid the ongoing violence and political unrest in Egypt.

"We do believe we have taken steps to ensure our military is ready to respond to a range of contingencies" flowing from the faceoff between President Mohammed Morsi and opposition protesters that has the Egyptian military threatening to intervene, said George Little, the Pentagon’s chief spokesman.

In response to the killing last year of Ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi, Libya, the U.S. posted 550 Marines to the air base in Moron, Spain, to serve as a response force to turmoil in the region.

As the Egyptian protests have escalated, elements from the Marine force at Moron have been moved closer to Cairo at the air base at Sigonella, Italy, Pentagon officials said. The Marines have MV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft available at both Moron and Sigonella to move them quickly to any contingency.

I agree

So when are the marines going  to washington to clean out that rats nest of the vermin
called politicians,  mainly all subverted by the chicago mob...seems like we need to clean
out our own backyard before we worry about egypt, or any other foreign entity. 
Got a whole lot of traitors pretending to be congressmen, senators, and a president,
along with lots of federal employees that need to check out the guiloteen at really close
range. 

I would not be surprised if guiloteens are here on our soil with FEMA or DHS, just like the body bags,coffins, and FEMA camps. Just like Germany did, we will wait too long before we react thinking the government will not turn on us. It already has.

And that's what their betting on

I SECOND THAT

Well if they're truly going to be used to evacuate US citizens and US embassy then it would make sense but in light of Obamas lies who can believe this would be the only reason? If the Marines are ordered to fight the protesters then that would be the start of us entering into yet another war. The SOB in the WH knows exactly what he's doing. He's finding a way to completely obliterate our military so he can form his own exclusive one. He knows our troops won't fight their own people.

THE TRASH ArabMuslime LIAR OBAMA is going to try and keep as many of our MILITARY tied up out of OUR COUNTRY---HE and his DHS CLOWN along with some others have made an arrangment with the RUSSIANS to have them send 15,000 RUSSIAN TROOPS here to "http://www.eutimes.net/2013/06/obama-requests-15000-russian-troops-for-upcoming-disaster/"

THIS is NOT A JOKE ---LOOK at the MAP of the GESTAPOS AREA III---AREA III is DC and the surrounding areas---

YOU have to LOOK at and PAST THE THINGS that OBAMA is doing---THINK of the PEA and THREE SHELLS--the HAND is FASTER than the EYE--SMOKE and MIRRORS is what he is up to so his real moves are NOT SEEN!

the Marines in wayting to take Americans out of Egypt if the shit hits the fan why not evacuate now BEFORE the shit hits the fan Hope the Marines take a hint from the Egyptian military and remove the Dictator  here .

Get our people out of the Embassy now! Send in Hillary and Panetta to defend it.

Our Military should stand down, if orders send them to Egypt or any where else. Out troops should be coming home........

It is starting to look like the reason behind not responding to the defense of the consulates office in Benghazi is so they can put troops in Egypt as they will have what happened in Benghazi as an excuse to say that they did not want the same scrutiny in Egypt as they had in Benghazi and that is why they want to put troops there!!!! Now you can see that it was also a false flag in Benghazi... Perhaps the cronies in the white house and CIA are behind the attacks in Benghazi..... That is exactly how we have seen them operate up until now...

More likely for rescuing morsi & brotherhood brothers than Americans & should this become so it's just more evidence of treason & protection of our enemys for & including the demise for the future of Israel

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
