    but I'm sure he insurgents took advantage of the current atmosphere, or saw some kind of opportunity in it.

      had written this, coquiero, let me make sure i put this in.  I thought I had written the fact that it was insurgents, not rioters does not make the deaths any less tragic for their families.

        I was just making a comment. It seems like there has been a lot of activity going on around the world, honestly, even here in the US, in reaction to or somehow taking advantage of the chaotic atmosphere.

        That's all I was trying to say, I'm sorry if it came off as insensitive.

          problem.  You are no doubt correct that there are some that will exploit these tragic events for their own political gain.  Yesterday, on MSNBC someone either suggested, or asked the question if one particular government was allowing protests to escalate to a certain point to deflect citizen anger away from them, and towards the U.S. instead.
