    Sure it was. Nowhere else during the unrest was anything of that nature undertaken. There's a remarkable difference between getting hit with a rock and getting hit with a mortar round. Rocks just lay around here and there. Mortars generally don't. I've never seen a heavy machine gun just laying in the street gutters, and I've been a lot of places in that area of the world.

    who was supposed to "bail them out", if not the military?

    Military personel were waiting for orders. They didn't get any. If that's exculpatory to you, then I recommend you serve in our military or foreign service in a similar place under similar circumstances. Those who have served in such capacities understand that things look quite a bit different when it happens to be you that's on the firing line. Up until now, it's why we have said we don't leave ours behind, and we don't leave them twisting in the wind. By your comments, I don't expect that is something you would even have a passing familiarity with.

    Back to the beginning. Irrelevant. You're forgetting from where those orders would come.

    it can't be irrelevant from a military standpoint.

    It is. The military only acts under orders from the executive branch. If there are no orders, the military doesn't act.

    You might be talking of whatever fantasy of the day, I was ridiculing the pointless question of "Where was he when it happened?"
