Doing What U.S. Does Best - Don't Dare Throw Eggs at Them

A convoy of US Army military vehicles arrived in Riga, Sunday as part of a 1,770-km (1,100-mile) tour through six European countries. The convoy is making its way through Estonia, Lithuania, Poland, Latvia, the Czech Republic and Germany, before reaching its final destination near the German town of Vilseck.

Czech people were told not to throw tomatoes and eggs at a US military convoy rumbling through Eastern Europe, the local media said, citing the laws of the land. Those in love with egg & tomato hurling may get up to three years if convicted.

“Should anyone emerge with the intent to attack the convoy, with [items] such as tomatoes or eggs, it would qualify as disorderly conduct according to Czech legislation (up to 2 years without parole, in recidivist cases up to 3 years) or damage to property (sentences in the range of 6 months to 3 years).”

This statement was aired on Czech TV Nova ahead of the planned US military convoy.
