Riot police, protesters clash outside US Embassy in Cairo

By the CNN Wire Staff

Riot police advanced on protesters outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo shortly after dawn on Friday to quell a violent demonstration that raged through the night.

Police armed with shields and batons, backed by an armed personnel carrier, rushed a group of several hundred protesters, a move that came after U.S. President Barack Obama warned that relations with Egypt will be shaped by how the country responds to the violence.

"I don't think that we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy," Obama told Telemundo in an interview that aired Thursday night.

    America has invaded sixty countries since world war 2.

    In 1953, America overthrow Iran's democratic government and installed a brutal dictator Shah of Iran. America helped Shah to established secret police and killed hundreds of thousands of Iranians.

    During Iran-Iraq war, America helped Saddam Hussein and killed one million Iranians. America is the only country that shot down Iran's civilian air plain and killed all 290 passengers.

    In 2003, America invaded Iraq and killed 1,000,000+ innocent Iraqi people and displaced 4,000,000+ Iraqi people.
    Now, America is a failed country with huge debt. Its debt will be 24 trillion by 2015.

    Every other day a city in America is declaring bankruptcy. ha ha ha ha ha ha

    MUSLIM CLERICS always are RESPONSIBLE and BEHIND every single terrorist attack and violent mob demonstration in the world !! These RATS incite, instigate the masses of brainless Muslims to commit all kinds of atrocities. This devil's PUS always see the splinter in another's eye while not seeing the log on their own. They NEVER acknowledge their evil acts not even TRY to correct them.

    They do not have gas masks because Mubarak did not use tear gas...... I remember when the Arab "spring" started someone stole a US embassy van and drove through a crowd with it. There are people that are undeniably trying to sabotage U.S. efforts throughout the region. Obama NEEDS TO STOP THIS BEFORE IT GAINS TRACTION!
