Watch the video, with no sound. Look at the imagery presented.
The first thing you notice is the two leaders of this pack have a bright yellow and bright red shirt.
Why do you suppose that is?
Obviously, to get your attention as they enter the crowd.
If you look at the crowd they enter, you notice mostly grey, beige and black coloured clothing is being worn. So the bright colours definitely get noticed.
Notice they are wearing scarves on their heads also, some bright red, some black?
How very 'Arab'.
The black scarves are very reminiscent of Palestinians, no?
Doesn't this feel like a Hollywood movie production
Like Lawrence of Arabia?
Where the leader is dressed in white from head to toe, to garner attention, to draw your eye to the action about to be taken by this man and his followers.
Something else bothers me?
These men on horses and camels are being associated with Mubarek. Why assume they are Mubarek "supporters"? Why assume that they are affiliated with Mubarek at all?
As the NYT calls them: "President Hosni Mubarak’s big-bellied provocateurs"
Because the media claims they are? Is that why?
Think about it?
Why, would Mubarek enable or enlist people to take these kind's of actions?
He is done! The US forced his hand. Direct Intervention from Obama.
Do you think Obama told him nicely, step down there buddy??
I don't think so.
I am certain it was made clear, your done! Your outta there! We don't need you and we can't use you anymore. Hit the road!
Once that happened Mubarek would have been fully aware there is no going back. No second chance. The US and Israel could live without him. His time was over.
So, why would he try to hold on to power?
He wouldn't. Unless he has a death wish?
So, what is going on here? I can only tell you what I think....
This is typical "creating order out of chaos".
And this type of created chaos benefits two nations.
Israel and the US.
Look at the news out of Israel:
The on going demonstrations in Egypt could force Israel to adapt to a new security reality in the Middle East, IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.- Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi warned Tuesday, in his first comments on the anarchy in Cairo
ElBaradei is talking about being pro-Israel and pro-US. As head of the opposition he is refusing to cooperate with the new Prime Minister until Mubarek is gone.
But Mohamed ElBaradei and the Muslim Brotherhood on Thursday rejected the prime minister's invitation to negotiate, reiterating their condition that Mubarak quit first.
Egypt does not need to be torn at the seams at this time. If Elbaradei was genuinely interested in the people of Egypt and their well being, he would be working towards some form of government cooperation until "elections" are held and then Egypt can go from there.. But, that is not what is going on.
The scenes on the street will continue to deteriorate. Provoked by agents of NATO, and possibly Israel. Until, as luck would have it, especially for Israel.....troops will enter Egypt. To keep the peace, of course.
These provocateurs have nothing to do with Mubarek.
