Meanwhile In Afghanistan

Tyler Durden's picture

Yesterday it was US embassies in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, Sudan, Lebanon, India, Balgadesh, Indonesia, and others that were besieged and/or attacked. Today, we finally add Afghanistan to the "and others" list. From the LA Times: "Rioters infuriated by an anti-Islam video clashed with police in the Afghan capital on Monday, setting cars and tires ablaze and chanting anti-American slogans. Police blocked off the traffic circle closest to the U.S. Embassy and other diplomatic missions, and most Westerners working in Kabul were ordered by their organizations to try to stay out of public view. Monday’s unrest broke out when about 1,000 people gathered near an American base on the capital’s eastern edge and began marching toward the city. Police fired shots into the air to try to disperse the crowd, but the protesters continued to surge forward." In other words, just another American appreciation day.

As the clip below shows, protesters were burning US flags and posters of the US president, chanting "Death to America! Death to Obama!"

Some more video coverage of the latest breakout of anti-American sentiment:

All of these anti-American protests around the globe say something about the upcoming election here.  I wouldn't be surprised if Russia annexes the Mediterranean by Halloween. 

Meanwhile, on the golf course...

The protests spark is a psy op by romney/netanjahu to discredit obama and the deescalating and friendlier parts of his foreign policy.

Theres also an imperialist war side on obamas FP which is rediculous and americans should be ashamed for allowing it, but romney and netanjahu want exactly to step that filthy imperial side of american FP UP.

Funny. Pretty much nobody gives a damn about the whole thing in the one country USA has yet to invade: Iran.

Don't you worry Afghanians, the U.S. is now joining efforts with Taliban movement to finally conquer the resources rich land. If you can't beat them, join them.

They view the American forces occupying their country as a Global Force for Good.

The escalating violence – including a NATO airstrike that killed eight Afghan women and girls gathering firewood – is straining the military partnership between Kabul and NATO as the U.S. begins to withdraw thousands of troops sent three years ago to route the Taliban from

Wow, "Death to Obama". That's a big change from his election day, when brown people around the world around the world were rejoicing. I wonder what he did in the meantime to piss them all off? Oh nevermind.

Anyone who thinks this is all about some movie is badly mistaken. That's just the trigger point.

"They hate us for our freedoms". No they don't. They hate us for our jackboot on their necks, for our storm troopers in their villages, and for our bombs raining down on their houses.

No, actually the Iranians did march on the Swiss embassy which is stuck with the thankless role of conveying messages between the two sides.

Retarded. So let me see if I have your position right... Anti-Americanism is a psy-op because we are becoming too nice under Obama, but we are escalating the war mongering imperialism, so the anti-Americanism could be justified, not just abroad, but at home as well, except it's a psy-op.

Amazing how tortured one's logic can become when trying to view everything through the R vs. D paradigm.

Bullish for sales of US flags.

US Flags made in China, since the heavy-duty, high-quality, canvas ones don't rip easily or burn well...

The list is missing Australia and France (big surprise).

Small one in Germany...East Germany, not west, but the renewed and sec..newly financed...loons in the Nazi party.  

Turkey is doing things very strangely.  Poison, car and direct killing like Los Narco's do.  The list of bodies showing up is strange.  Lawyer, couple of business men, IT people.  No politico's yet.  Probably killing all the support staff to tie the political hands.

There are others happening right now but they are small, no zerg attacks.  Yet.  Something very nasty is coming and disucssing it with other anons, TPTB are in panic mode.  So expect something very stupid to happen.

Agreed. Those bastards don't even appreciate that America goes to all the trouble of dropping freedom right on their doorstep via combat drones.

Can you report on countries NOT having any riots, national strikes or protests please? They are fewer, so it makes more sense.

The USA...oh wait.  Chicago (CTU) and New York (OWS) and I heard the New England Patriots fans are pretty pissed off.

Just because he bows to them....doesn't mean he's one of them.

At least he doesn't kiss them and hold their hands...

We don't know that he doesn't.

I'm not sure drone strikes are equivalent to bowing.

Why do those Afghani Muslims hate their fellow Muslim Obomber so much?

Another $1Trillion and thousands of American lives wasted.

Heckva a job.

Didn't cost anything....we borrowed the money from China.


krispkritter's picture

Since it's full of valuable 'rare earth metals', why don't we just sell it to the Chinese for $16T(minus that $1T we owe) and call it even? Then we can finance our next $16T spending spree from the Mexicali drug cartels...

It will only cost 5 Afgani money to dig it out of the ground.


Shoot em down. If they want a fight, then bring it,


Either that or pack up and come home. Let them learn how to dig.

There are rare earths but no water or electricity to mine them with and no roads or railroads to transport them and of course no ports. Oops.

New Zealand was meant to have riots but didn't due to an administrative error ;-)
