From an MSNBC article on the unrest in Egypt:
In something of a call to arms, the military posted on Facebook: “We swear to God to sacrifice with our blood for Egypt and its people against any terrorist, extremist or ignoramus."
I suppose it's reassuring to know that no such pledge by the military or anybody else would or even could be made here in America. It might be possible to fight against potentially dozens of terrorists, or even thousands of extremists. But the tens of millions of ignoramuses--not to mention the large number occupying the US Congress--would make such a fight hopeless.
