It has Egypt where Iraq is.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Actually I would call it a fraudulent slip, pun intended.

American pacified Egypt by way of the "Foreign Aid" teat. After invading Iraq, aren't we in effect doing the same thing to Iraq?

FEDbuster's picture

They get everything but a star on the flag. 

At least Fox was close, most Americans couldn't identify or even spell Egypt.

This first came out July 2009.

Probably not photoshopped, but definitely recycled.

Right.  And since when has the DOW been down 37.94 points, or any points for that matter?

I am Chumbawamba.

Oops it looks like we invaded the wrong country.... ah well, those fucking ragheads all look the same anyways.

This map tell us that if Egypt goes Muslim, the America will have to live Iraq the same way it has let Vietnam, i.e., in a hurry.

I like to hear American, British and France diplomats are talking of having a democracy in Egypt. May be these colonial gangsters explain to us why are they still prefer dictatorial regimes to a democracy ones?

America must be pissed off by the Egyptian events since CIA may have to close its secret torture prisons there. What a fking pity!

Nah, the Clandestine ones just allow the Egytian PoPo's to do the work, those are some rude mean assed bitches.

hey , none of those boundaries matter anyway. eventually, it will all be 'US Territories'.

Alcoholic Native American's picture

occupied territories you mean.

Actually, now that the internet has been blocked there, the correct spelling is E-gypped

It says Israel's a state. How about property theft?

+1000  A bunch of fakes hijacked a religion and eventually land that most carnal Christians think are The Chosen Ones....  Nothing against a true Christian.  They know better;)

Newsflash dash, ALL Jews are Members of the Chosen ones.

The Covenant is still in effect.

Speaking of that, openmesh has a project up trying to get internet access back into Egypt.  They are looking for engineers who are interested in helping.

I think a lot of governments are probably getting really antsy here.  Some (our own) might decide it is better to be proactive in this regard.   It might not be a bad idea to start considering our own alternatives here.  I wish Tyler or one of the others would write an article about this.

Gotcha. Google is my friend.

Not likely to survive the series of EMP events coming our way. I would counsel a more practical or cost-effective investment.

In Fed We Trust's picture

Ok I think I figured out what those FoXcons are up too.

Iraq is left off the map entirely.  Iran is in the biggest FONT, front and center.

The establishment wants us to focusing on Iran.  Even though there is some difference between the countries, most Americans only know the one letter difference in the name.

Establishment concludes it shouldn't be to difficult to convince the people of another war, with the names of the countires being so close, just off by one letter, fuck most

Americans wont even notice when the Iraq war ends the Iran war starts.

Look for Fox to put more maps in the future of Iran front and center.

DosZap's picture

IN Fed,

Spot on, but I do not think it will end there.

Egypt(I can spell it), hates the Shia, and Persians(Iran) hate the Sunnis.

Most all the territory there is occupied by Sunnis, I mean ALL of it.Iran is not nearly as strong militarily as Egypt,much less most of the others.

Iran wants the Nuke, to be able to wield the Sword............this cannot be allowed to happen.

The only people who flagged this post are the morons who actually had to open a new browser tab and do an image search for "middle east map" to notice the error. He's 100% right, half of America can't even spell Egypt nor locate it on a map. Any segment of Jay Walking with Jay Leno will prove that.

Rodent Freikorps's picture

Yeah, I get it. America, always wrong and evil.

Damned if we do, and damned if we don't.

Might as well do what is best for us, and not worry too much what everyone thinks of us.

Alcoholic Native American's picture

CRY MOAR, when did the U.S. start doing what's right for the people? The country got hijacked by multinational corporations and hired our Mercenary pentagon to open up new markets overseas without even declaring an offical state of war.

What do you get a dividend check or something? You seem to have the mental agility of a 18 year old jarhead.

Rodent Freikorps's picture

I hate the direction my country is going.

I don't hate my country.

caconhma's picture

No, he is just a "regular" zionist.

shargash's picture

Failure to recognize when America does wrong or evil things, means America can never correct what is wrong, never improve as a nation.

Why do you hate America?

Rodent Freikorps's picture

Can't you guys get a new playbook?

pan-the-ist's picture

But there's nothing wrong with the old one. 

Actions have consequences, thought conservative "take responsibility" types understood that.

DaveyJones's picture

explain how the current path has been best for "us"   

Rodent Freikorps's picture

It is not. Never said it was.

Nation building was always a dumb idea. We should keep what we conquer.

An empire would.

pan-the-ist's picture

We do, but rather than deal with the noisy populations, we install dictators so we don't have to... (but we put a military base there just in case.) Every once in a while those dictators stop taking orders, and then we have to set an example.  Not sure if that is what is going on in Egypt or not.

i.knoknot's picture

like we're installing rahm in chicago, eh?


lawrence1's picture

The owners of the US always do what is in their interest regardless of what we the people think and you are sufficiently ignorant to identify with them... another stupid sheep in the slaughter pen. Enjoy.

Rodent Freikorps's picture

You are probably right. At this point in time I would rather see the liberal intelligentsia put up against a wall than the ultra-rich.

Alcoholic Native American's picture

Yea, cause the liberal intelligentsia CONTROL EVERYTHING! Jesus Christ you are a dipshit man.

Rodent Freikorps's picture

Yep. They own the bureaucracies, the MFM, Hollywood and most of the schools.

They are the cancer.

The ultra-rich are just thieves.

philgramm's picture

dude, get the fuck off the liberal/conservative shit.  Why don't most people understand tht the transition from red to blue (or blue to red for that matter) is always smooth. Nothing changes.  But now idiots get to blame another team.  When people get tired of one team they go and vote in the team that fucked them over 8 years ago.  But it feels good to have someone to blame, doesn't it?
