It is the West, not the film: European embassies stormed
Mobs are now attacking, shooting at, and desecrating not only U.S. embassies but also those of Germany and the U.K. at last count. The German embassy in Sudan is in flames.
One protester was killed in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli in clashes with security forces, after a crowd of protesters set fire to a KFC and an Arby’s restaurant. Protesters hurled stones and glass at police in a furious melee that left 25 people wounded, 18 of them police. The Lebanese police (and army) really do need to up the competency there — if you recall when the army took on the crazy Palestinian extremists a couple of years ago, nearly 3/4ths of the more than 700 killed were soldiers.
You’ve also got violent protests going on in Lebanon over the visit of the Pope.
