Gunmen Kill 21 Egyptian Soldiers in Checkpoint Attack

The attackers used rocket-propelled grenades and heavy machineguns in the attack on the post in the desert area of El-Farafrah, 630 kilometers (390 miles) west of Cairo, security officials said.

That location is out in the desert, not near much of anything. Granted, the border with Libya is 150 miles away, as the crow flies, but there is no road leading there without doubling the distance.

I would think egypt is not very happy about this.

Am I the only one that feels like all the events happening now we are seeing the beginnings of what could be World War III?

The world is a mess!

I could be the start of it.

The world is a mess!

It is indeed a mess.
