By DAN CALABRESE - The violence continues to spread.

This is breaking and there aren't a lot of details. Reuters reports that Sudanese demonstrators stormed the German embassy in Khartoum and raised an Islamic flag over it. There are other reports that the embassy is on fire.

Again, the reporters say they're protesting anti-Muslim material that's come out of the west, although it's unclear whether they're (supposedly) protesting the YouTube video that (supposedly) stirred up the crowds in Egypt and Libya, or if they're peeved about that Danish cartoonist who received support a few years back from Angela Merkel.

At any rate, here we have the result of all Obama's appeasement of the Arab Street. Who knows how long this will go on, or how bad it will get?

Meanwhile, in the U.S., the media's on the real story.
