Egyptian General Warns Islamists Have Arsenal of Libyan Weapons to Use Against Egyptian People

While the protests in Egypt and Tunisia against the Islamists continue and Obama ignores the Muslim Brotherhood’s rape squads while bashing Israel over a few houses, the situation may be on the verge of turning truly ugly.

Mayor General Sameh Seif Al-Yazal, a former intelligence officer, the head of a security company and a security think tank, a member of the Egyptian Council for Foreign Affairs, who is supposedly close to the Egyptian military leadership, is now talking about the possibility of civil war.

In an interview with Al-Quds Al-Arabi, General Al-Yazal tells the paper that “the Islamists have an arsenal of weapons that came from Libya” and they “intend to use them against the Egyptian people in the framework of a political conflict.” Al-Yazal uses his opportunity to speak with the daily to call on outside forces to get more involved in the crisis.

“There must be intervention,” he says. “Or Egypt is heading into a civil war.”

The interesting question is who is he talking about. It seems likely that Al-Yazal means the various Salafist groups, rather than the Brotherhood which can draw from the superior weapons stocks of their Turkish, Qatari and Saudi backers.

If the Salafists do attempt to start a civil war using Libyan weapons that fell into their hands due to Obama’s Libyan War, then the cost of Obama’s illegal war will suddenly be a lot higher than previously thought.

    This General's warning sounds very much in sync with several previous commentaries –… here….

    And the above are the absolute results of an illegal war, waged by the Pyromaniac-in-Chief in Libya, albeit under the cover of 'leading from behind', but really in sync with Samantha Powers R2P mischief making, and of piece with Huma Abedin's guiding (Sisterhood) hands.

    We know that very well here in Egypt… and the US administration and NATO are bearing the responsibility of the innocent people that will be killed by the very same weapons that they've given to Libya

      John, I wish I had enough words to tell you how sorry I am that we have the president we do.

      I voted against him both times and did my best to explain why he had blood on his hands.

      I wish any foolish 'serf' would read your post and realize it was about more than domestic issues.

      IMHO, what we're seeing in the Middle East is tragic, but goes much, much broader and deeper than we're seeing on the surface. I believe Barack Obama is in direct conspiracy with the Muslim Brotherhood, to re establish a Middle East Caliphate. He's using everything and anything, monetarily, militarily and diplomatically at his disposal to achieve that goal. Syria's days are numbered, and Jordan will follow the same fate. Then once in place, that reincarnated evil will look Northward, to takeover Europe.

    And why, pray tell, are those Libyan weapons in Egypt (and Gaza and Syria for that matter)? Because NATO and the US took their eye off the ball, failing to secure or destroy those weapons.

    Now consider what's happening in Syria, where even more deadly weapons could "leak". Speaking for the US, Clinton says the *use* of those chemical weapons by the Syrian regime would cross a red line. She says nothing about those weapons falling into other hands of others like Al Qaida and Hezbullah.

      Obama had his eye on the ball.

      It was a two-fer for him. He got another muslim militant government in place and used weapons to push for it next door too. His muslim heritage rears it's ugly head at the worst times.

    Obama is a complete idiot when it comes to foreign affairs, either that or it is his plan to create chaos and mayhem for a new world order. I happen to think it is the former, since he is a complete idiot to be able to form the latter. Even Hitler who was a stronger and more capable leader was not able to do it.
    That only leaves the idiot explanation.
