Why Are We Sending Ground Troops To Egypt? Unarmed?

Posted on June 27, 2013

Do you want the bad news or the worse news first? Reportedly, we are sending more than 400 soldiers to Egypt as “riot prevention” at the border of Israel. The Egyptian army has attempted to calm Egyptian concerns, in part by announcing the following:

“The 400 US soldiers coming to Egypt as mentioned in the media are part of the periodical renewal routine for the US faction of the 13-state multinational force deployed in Sinai since the peace treaty. They are not armed with military operations gear.”

If the soldiers were there to protect Americans from violence, I would have some positive feelings about their presence in Egypt. I don’t want a repeat of Benghazi. But how much can they really do without “military operations gear”?

The plan to send the troops seems based on the confidence that they will have to deal with riots and not much else:

“Training at Fort Hood for a nine-month deployment in the ‘near future’ concluded on June 20, KCEN-TV reports, noting that the soldiers encountered Molotov cocktails and ‘other dangerous items’ in their training. ‘Just what I’ve seen over the course of the past week, this unit is already far more ready for this type of threat than we were last week,’ Lt. Matthew Wilkinson told the television station. According to KDH News, the training lasted about six months. ‘We want to be as professional as possible so that whatever situation we may encounter, [so] the opposing force knows that we mean business and we know what we’re doing,’ said PFC Perez Alexander. Troops from 13 nations, including the 400 from the US, will man posts and security checkpoints along the Sinai Peninsula, report any peace treaty violations between Egypt and Israel, and be prepared to respond to threats.”

Maybe we can "Embed" our troops with Al Quada. We gave them all the guns and missiles. I'm sure they'll keep our brave out of harms way.......

Benghazi was a trail ballon
