Much has been written about Egypt over the past few days.
Time will tell what exactly is going to happen in Egypt and the surrounding countries.
How will the changes affect the nation states in the great Global game.
That all sounds so political- 'nation states', 'global game'....
As if the people don't matter at all.
As if what they want, they need, their human rights, don't even come into play.
If you haven't read the posts that James wrote over at Winter Patriot, (winter patriot is linked in the side bar) I suggest you do so. Especially, this one- The Egyptian Revolution in Context.
AP and Aangirfan have also been doing their duty, covering the latest.
This one, from Aangirfan is quite good-WHO CONTROLS THE EGYPTIAN MILITARY? HISTORY OF MANIPULATION
Why this one specifically?
I am of the opinion, given the behaviour of the military during the protests, that the military was being controlled outside of Egypt, most likely by NATO.
I want to end by quoting from an excellent article from Global Research.
The slogans in Egypt are "Down with Mubarak, Down with the Regime". No anti-American posters have been reported... The overriding and destructive influence of the USA in Egypt and throughout the Middle East remains unheralded.
The foreign powers which operate behind the scenes are shielded from the protest movement.
No significant political change will occur unless the issue of foreign interference is meaningfully addressed by the protest movement.The US embassy in Cairo is an important political entity, invariably overshadowing the national government. The Embassy is not a target of the protest movement.
Our message to the protest movement:
The relationship of "the dictator" to foreign interests must be addressed. Unseat the political puppets but do not forget to target the "real dictators".
The protest movement should focus on the real seat of political authority; it should target (in a peaceful, orderly and nonviolent fashion) the US embassy, the delegation of the European Union, the national missions of the IMF and the World Bank.
The protests/protestors did not address the basis of their problems. They did not strike at the root. They will end up worse off then they are now.
An early indication???
