Suspected leftist guerrillas fired a rocket-propelled grenade at the US embassy in Athens on Friday, causing minor damage, in the boldest attack staged by left-wing militants in years. The blast shattered windows and woke up nearby residents in the central Athens area at 5:58 AM (0358 GMT) but no one was hurt, police said.
The grenade was launched just across the street from the heavily guarded embassy building, which is surrounded by a 3-metre-high steel fence, and authorities were dealing with the attack as a serious act of violence. Apparently aimed at the US seal on the building's facade, the attack was the worst assault on the mission, often the target of Greek protests and demonstrations, in a decade. ...
Once Greece's biggest security threat, the group was dismantled two years before the Athens 2004 Olympics. It had staged hundreds of bombings, shootings and rocket attacks, and killed US and other foreign diplomats in Greece.
In November last year, Greek riot police fired tear gas to disperse demonstrators marching to the embassy, chanting slogans including "Bush the butcher, out of Iraq" and "The USA is the real terrorist".
All the scum of the earth hate the USA: Jihadists, Lefists ... er um... have I left anyone out!? Basically they're folks who want to drag humanity back into a world of less liberty and less prosperity and re-enact the failed policies of previous centuries. Idiots. Especially these Greek lefties/anarchists. And these jerks, too.
UPDATE: Birds of a Feather - part 26b, (via LGF):
Lebanese flag and portrait of Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara are displayed on the tents as Lebanese men relax smoking water-pipes in the tent camp erected by Hezbollah and their allies during the 43rd day of an open-ended protest to try and force the resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora in central Beirut, Friday, Jan. 12, 2007.AND ANOTHER THING: TAB has been using the BIRDS OF A FEATHER meme for over a year, (long before LGF!), but you're welcome to use it too, Charles!
