Let's put aside my touristy aspirations at this time and get to some interesting news.
Having made mention in yesterday's post that I had the impression, call it a hunch if you wish, that the uprising in Egypt had been fomented from beyond....as in from other interested parties. But, it got a little out of hand.
Today, some interesting information had come to my attention.
First of all, this : America's secret backing for rebel leaders behind uprising
On his return to Cairo in December 2008, the activist tols US diplomats that an alliance of opposition groups had drawn up a plan to overthrow President Hosni Mubarak and install a democratic government in 2011. The secret document in fullThe crisis in Egypt follows the toppling of Tunisian president Zine al-Abedine Ben Ali, who fled the country after widespread protests forced him from office.
From the article:
In a secret diplomatic dispatch, sent on December 30 2008, Margaret Scobey, the US Ambassador to Cairo, recorded that opposition groups had allegedly drawn up secret plans for “regime change” to take place before elections, scheduled for September this year.
It said the activist claimed “several opposition forces” had “agreed to support an unwritten plan for a transition to a parliamentary democracy, involving a weakened presidency and an empowered prime minister.
I will mention that this document was released by Wikileaks. So, should it be discounted or considered? Is it contributing to a real narrative or a false one? I guess that will be up to the individuals reading here to decide?
I will admit, I found this tidbit of info from the wire interesting:
" xxxxxxxxxxxx described how he tried to convince his
Washington interlocutors that the USG should pressure the GOE to
implement significant reforms by threatening to reveal CAIRO 00002572
002 OF 002 information about GOE officials' alleged \"illegal\"
off-shore bank accounts. He hoped that the U.S. and the internationalcommunity would freeze these bank accounts"
A dictator with alleged, illegal off-shore bank accounts? Who would have ever thought that possible ;)
And, in the midst of all this news on Egypt, I come across this in the book I am reading, presently.
The US/NATO/Israel military axis and the Mediterranean Dialogue.
What countries are part of this dialogue?
Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordon, Mauritania and Tunisia.
Algeria, Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia.
Four nations, four so called people powered revolutions or protests taking place.
But were they? Really?
Are the leaders of the above mentioned nations, unable to fulfill or participate fully in some unknown agenda? Unknown by the masses that is?
Certainly, well known to the people who are fomenting these changes.
It is worth mentioning that Israel has a particularly special relationship within NATO.
What are we looking at so far?
The likelihood that the so called popular uprisings had their beginnings in Intelligence and/or NATO operations.
It is more then a coincidence that four of the nations participant in the Mediterranean Dialogue, are having their leadership overthrown.
So, what is war/misery, evil is being hatched for the future?
It is also worth pointing out something from AP's place
In her post, Things that Stink.
Also, the US Army is sending aerial backup to the Sinai?
The US Army's Aviation Regiment has mobilized for deployment to Egypt's Sinai Peninsula to back the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) overseeing the Egypt-Israel peace treaty.January 15th.....ten days before anything happened in Egypt.
Connecticut National Guard Detachment 2, Company I, 185th Aviation Regiment of Groton left Connecticut on January 15 for Fort Benning, for further training and validation, a Press TV correspondent reported on Monday.
No, it is not a coincidence!
